President Trump Beats War Drums For Iran

Trump Iran

President Trump has been notoriously inconsistent in his foreign policy. He campaigned on and won the presidency with promises to repair relations with Russia, pull out of no-win wars like Afghanistan, and end the failed US policy of nation-building overseas. Once in office he pursued policies exactly the opposite of what he campaigned on. Unfortunately Iran is one of the few areas where the president has been very consistent. And consistently wrong.

In the president’s speech last week he expressed his view that Iran was not “living up to the spirit” of the 2015 nuclear agreement and that he would turn to Congress to apply new sanctions to Iran and to, he hopes, take the US out of the deal entirely.

Nearly every assertion in the president’s speech was embarrassingly incorrect. Iran is not allied with al-Qaeda, as the president stated. The money President Obama sent to Iran was their own money. Much of it was a down-payment made to the US for fighter planes that were never delivered when Iran changed from being friend to foe in 1979. The president also falsely claims that Iran targets the United States with terrorism. He claims that Iran has “fueled sectarian violence in Iraq,” when it was Iranian militias who prevented Baghdad from being overtaken by ISIS in 2014. There are too many other false statements in the president’s speech to mention.

How could he be so wrong on so many basic facts about Iran? Here’s a clue: the media reports that his number one advisor on Iran is his Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley. Ambassador Haley is a “diplomat” who believes war is the best, first option rather than the last, worst option. She has no prior foreign policy experience, but her closest mentor is John Bolton – the neocon who lied us into the Iraq war. How do these people live with themselves when they look around at the death and destruction their policies have caused?

Unfortunately the American people are being neoconned into another war. Just as with the disastrous 2003 US attack on Iraq, the media builds up the fear and does the bidding of the warmongers without checking facts or applying the necessary skepticism to neocon claims.

Like most Americans, I do not endorse Iran’s style of government. I prefer religion and the state to be separate and even though our liberties have been under attack by our government, I prefer our much freer system in the US. But I wonder how many Americans know that Iran has not attacked or “regime-changed” another country in its modern history. Iran’s actions in Syria are at the invitation of the legitimate Syrian government. And why won’t President Trump tell us the truth about Iranian troops in Syria – that they are fighting ISIS and al-Qaeda, both of which are Sunni extremist groups that are Iran’s (and our) mortal enemies?

How many Americans know that Iran is one of the few countries in the region that actually holds elections that are contested by candidates with very different philosophies? Do any Americans wonder why the Saudis are considered one of our greatest allies in the Middle East even though they hold no elections and have one of the world’s worst human rights records?

Let’s be clear here: President Trump did not just announce that he was “de-certifying” Iran’s compliance with the nuclear deal. He announced that Iran was from now on going to be in the bullseye of the US military. Will Americans allow themselves to be lied into another Middle East war?

    Trump is following orders from Netanyahu and the Israelis. Israel would like nothing better than to see the US spend it’s blood and treasure fighting Iran, but Iran is not some 3rd world nation with a poor armed force. They are good AND they are backed by Russia and China. Definitely no pushover.

    • THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH YOU DON’ FA

      EXACTLY. Trump is beating the war drums so his masters in IS= REAL-HELL can dance.

  • Rick E.

    It’s beyond pathetic that Trump is THAT controlled by Israel as to risk a middle east escalation that could morph into a WW3 scenario! What a stupid, deliberately ignorant idiot he is!
    He knows damned well that Iran has followed the mandates thus far regarding the nuclear deal. But he’s deliberately ignoring the facts and making up absurd bullshit!

    • Billy Sharpshooter

      Did you see Rick? The very 1st thing Trump did after getting elected was to don that yarmulke and go and pray at that Wailing Wall? We would only go to Israel for sunshine, beaches, nightclubs and bitches, you get what I mean? LOL
      How can most of America not connect the dots?
      I only hope and pray Trump finds the golf course even more inviting than his obsession with walls. Little harm can be caused from there.
      The best way to make America great again is to build a wall around Trump’s golf course and keep him in there 😂😂😂

      • Rick E.

        Yes it is very disheartening! I agree with you.

      ISRAHEL WANTS WAR.

        There’s too much money to be made in corruption to get industrial complexes to start running honest businesses and selling quality that benefits the consumer.
        Tell you this n all my man. The US Government probably causes more damage to the world and its economy than all the gun owners and Islamic terrorists put together.
        This might make me unpopular but I was touched by Obama’s wish to build good relations with Iran. Right wingers never liked him and I think I know why. But the guy tried, you get me?

          the US is controlled by the Jewish Lobby…

    It’s no secret that all the war and financial issues are caused by these crooked Banksters and elitists who run our government from the shadows. Trump is just the puppet who goes around and pretends to be the leader of the free world. And he will be the scapegoat when it all goes to shit. And the Zionists and the Banksters will be right there with their hand out waiting for their share of the spoils.

    • Cynical Old Bastard

      Yup.

    Is the O-rang-E-tang-Trump a czionist-NWO-megabank-lackey?

    Or,..

    Are (EU+UK) derivatives valid after a hard Brexit?
