Dear Mr. Biden,
Remove all economic sanctions on Iran, its government officials.
We americans are killing over 50,000 elderly and children there every year.
They cannot acquire medicines or spare parts for their hospital equipment.
They suffer high inflations.
Re-sign the nuclear agreement.

If Israel and saudi get miffed a bit, so what.
We cover both their military needs and it is all free to Israel, our 51st state.
While our own territory, Puerto Rico, is so darn poor, they cannot turn on the lights.

Trump came into office with questionable moves on the Russia sanctions, why not go out with thoughtless sanctions on Iran. And who is paying him to do such a thing?

This predictably ugly behavior at least indicates they are preparing to vacate the White House on January 20. So there’s that.

If Israel was our 51st state, it would only have two Senators representing its interests.

Israel stated in the Jerusalem Post it will mean war with Iran if Biden restarts the peaceful process that was working fine. The announcement was made by the minister of settlements which interestingly are illegal under the UN charter. Same document that created the state of Israel. We need to withdraw all troops from the Middle East…

When someone gets fired in real life, they are immediately escorted off the premises, not given months to screw up as much stuff as they can in a reign of childish vengeance.

I don’t know if you meant to be funny, but your “so there’s that” made me LOL. Thanx. (Let’s hope you’re right.)

Biden said the word, “Cooperation”, missing for four years in DC. I trust all those berating Biden for his history ( much is justifiable, though , I believe, counter productive ) will consider that this change in leadership is far more important and does signify progress of a sort.
It is far easier to get someone’s ear, even a president’s, by being politic rather than abusive and negative.

Next to the US, Israel is the biggest terrorist nation in the world.

The transition is a bit more complicated than perhaps you credit, and remember, most changes in an administration involve TWO grownups… While Trump will certainly display the same childishness and vindictive behavior he always has, all his last minute temper tantrums will be immediately reversed .

That would be a positive step, but imagine the arrogance of the US in that we have to consider whether we should stop committing war crimes. Perhaps, with much deliberation and pressure from the public, the US could deign to act like decent human beings instead of mass murderers. While we’re at it, how about similar actions on: Venezuela, Yemen, Somalia, and all of the others we are inflicting suffering on?

And they have to turn in the keys immediately.

When it comes to the Middle East, it’s more like we are an Israeli territory. The destruction we’ve wrought on the Middle East with the consequent explosion of refugees to other parts of the world, and the sacrifice of our blood and treasure, for the colonial State of Israel suggests we are its puppet.

It’s ironic that it was founded by terrorists. Menachem Begin was a mad bomber.

As I am certain you are aware, in a meeting in Haifa , in 1937, attended by a dozen or so future leaders of the yet to be state of Israel, Ben Gurion stated that 85% of the indigenous Arab population would have to be ousted to ensure a Jewish majority.

Yep, it’s been part of the plan to wipe out the Palestinians from the start.
