With the Trump administration set to announce punishing new sanctions against Iran on Monday with the goal of completely halting the country's oil exports, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reportedly joked about a secret White House plot to overthrow the Iranian government during a private meeting with Iranian-American "community leaders."
I’d like to see that Pompous ass write a five-paragraph essay on Zoroastrianism and tell us just how his belief system is so f*cking superior.
Pompeo’s secret coup jokes are maybe similar to Putin saying Russia would never attack Ukraine while his troops were shelling Crimea.
“Kill 'em all, let God sort 'em out.” Unless they happen to be a Saudi Prince.
And how has the Nazi coup in Ukraine worked out? From Porky to a TV actor playing a ‘fake’ president. Dang, that sounds familiar! Barely a scratch was occurred in transition of Crimea back to its previous status…plus no civilians and children were targeted or starved a la Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Palestine … the list goes on with new plans and new nations for genocide by disease and starvation.
If the US gov’t uses sanctions as a strategy, why shouldn’t I or others be able to - BDS Israel!!!
"The Evildoers Must Be Removed."
Secretary of State Pompeo regales Iranian-Americans with his trademark ‘Doctor Evil’ laugh, after joking that the U.S. would “devour” Iran at the right time. In an unrelated development, yet another young female of Middle East origin was found slain near Pompeo’s Washington D.C. residence, her neck and head covered with bite marks.
And, oil futures opened " up " on the world markets, today. As tensions ratchet and supply tightens, the price spikes make the losing proposition of " fracking and drilling " our way back to prosperity seem almost plausible; emphasis on plausible, of course.
Wall St. investors, holding a losing old energy portfolio, let Pompeo work his alchemy of turning the sanctions against Iran ( also Venezuelan sanctions ) into a chance to dump the cost ( externalities ) onto the driving public. While they clear the books.
Pompeo wraps himself in his 3rd of 4th American flag, stands on a pile of Bibles, rails against Socialists and the very bad and dangerous kind of Muslims ( non-Sunnis in bed with the Oiligarchy, Saudis & Netanyahu’s newest coalition. )
The same old playbook keeps getting dusted off, and used, because it works for the same old reasons.
Happy Earth Day, indeed. Hah! Hah! Hah!
“Even if we did, would I be telling you guys about it?”
Ho ho ho. This bloke’s virtually indistinguishable from George Carlin … except for the utter lack of a sense of humour. And human DNA.
So, you think the Venezuelan citizenry overwhelmingly voted to become part of America? Or that their government invited America to defend them? Otherwise i am not seeing the similarity.
Pompeo and his dusty old playbook keep getting opened up, and used, again and again. They always expect different results, but it never happens. The Iranian oil guys are, if they’re lucky, hedging their bets on the various oil futures markets( the ones they participate in), and maybe they’re hedging correctly. Maybe the mullahs don’t do “butterfly option spreads”, but if you’re very careful and attentive, as professional traders can be, complex trade strategies can work over the long term. If they don’t get tired.
Guys like Pompeo are as murderous as those that planted those bombs in Churches in Sri Lanka.
The latter are rightfully villified and called monsters , Pompeo will write a book and be invited to give speeches.
Let’s see your proof that Russian troops shelled Crimea. My bet is you have none.
Here’s more of Pompous’ sense of humor:
"I Was The CIA Director - We Lied, We Cheated, We Stole" (includes Video) - Apr 21, 2019 - Tyler Durden - ZeroHedge
Go to time = 28:20 for the beginning of the audience question that elicited this response.
The former CIA chief and now Secretary of State said the following:
“What’s the cadet motto at West Point? You will not lie, cheat, or steal, or tolerate those who do. I was the CIA director. We lied, we cheated, we stole. It’s — it was like — we had entire training courses. It reminds you of the glory of the American experiment .” — Texas A&M University (April 15, 2019)
Though some level of deception might be expected of spies placed in foreign settings to commit espionage, it’s interesting that Pompeo framed it in terms “the glory of the American experiment” — as if the CIA and government officials treat lying as a great American past time .
Certainly Pompeo’s frank admission is something to remember the next time intelligence officials weigh in on anything in front of the US domestic population.
The Pompeo attempt cuts off customers for Iranian oil exports ( same thing w/Cuba and Carribean vis a vis Venezuelan oil ) of which China is a very big player, as well. Lots of things are in the mix today.
My first post should of just said Shia ( though that is bad shorthand, too ) and the non-Sunni left out. Sorry, my bad.
Lots of things in the mix today.
The questions that beg answers are: 1. Since protests are nearly non-existant, will we be fortunate enough to vote this set of war mongers out of office? 2. Will we survive the next two years without a new war.
I don’t see anyone building new fortifications on our homeland, so it appears we will be fighting and grabbing in other peoples back yards.
Well, remember, the war makers in the Pentagon have a saying, “The best defense is an omnicidal offense.”
Pompeo is an overprivileged, overstuffed, criminal. Does he want to bring back the glorious days of the Shah? Who elected the Shah anyway? MI6 and the CIA elected him, overthrowing the popularly elected president, Mohammed Mosadegh (sp) It is time that we overthrow Pompeo and the psychotic Bolten. As for Trump, he needs to be institutionalized. The world needs to sanction us, the new Evil Empire.
We have had violent sociopaths in power since at least the onset of the Cold War, most of them in the CIA and military, but many in Congress and the White House (Cabinet included).
Why do we tolerate such dangerous thugs? Why do we not DEMAND they be removed from office?
