Please Iran don’t bite this provcation and outright murder by the corrupt Netanyahu murderer. Way until calmer head prevail and hopefully Israel will finally get rid of the corruption carried on by their ousted leader I thought but he keeps popping back WTF

Mr. Ritter hit this spot-on. I’m hoping that cooler heads can prevail amidst this utterly foolish action by Israel. The last thing we need right now is for a full-scale war to be started between Israel and Iran which would, of course, necessitate the U.S. stepping in on the side of poor little Israel. Crikey!

Go back to the JCPOA - NOW!!!

Cooler heads in our own government will prevail, if we start loping them off.

Biden should also know he has bigger problems than indicated in this and other related stories about this topic. Mossad would never do this without a green light coming from a faction inside the CIA.

I can’t wait to see Iranian bombs flying over Israel. They deserve them.

What possible justification does the Biden team have for insisting on preconditions, for Iran to resume a multiparty agreement that every party except Iran has violated? Iran had unquestionably honored all terms of the agreement before the US withdrew from the agreement and imposed economic sanctions forbidden by the agreement, and then waited a year before exercising specific rights under the agreement to resume uranium enrichment. And during the one-year delay by Iran in lawfully resuming enrichment per the agreement, the parties other than the US failed and refused to meet Iran’s perfectly reasonable and justified request that they take economic actions to offset the sanctions that the US was illegally imposing. The Biden Administration is in no moral or legal position to impose any preconditions on Iran, but can and should rejoin the agreement – and immediately drop all of the illegal sanctions against Iran.

Wishful thinking from the normals, an email from Joe to Netan-yahoo with a cc: to Ali Khamenei. “Dear Ben, You went too far this time. We will not be supporting you in the future so Israel will be on its own after January 20.” Unfortunately, the email will actually say, “Mission Accomplished.”

What Will End War?

“The peace that can be forged in the future must be based upon necessity. It must be based upon a clear understanding that humanity is entering a period of grave difficulty—facing a world in decline, a world of declining resources where many more people will be drawing from the bounty that the world can provide, a world where humanity will be facing competition from other races from beyond the world—a set of circumstances when taken together is greater and more profound and far reaching than anything that humanity as a whole has ever had to face before.”… pulled from “What Will End War”- of the New Message.

No doubt in my mind that Israel was the contractor here, but Trump and Pompeo were also in on this dangerous gambit. No doubt about that either.

This is just the opposite of the “OCTOBER SURPRISES” that Nixon carried out –
and that Reagan carried out – the first re Vietnam/LBJ peace effort – and the latter,
against Iran/Carter and hostages. Reagan’s daughter with Nancy – Patricia – made
clear in the obvious deal made to hold the hostages until after Reagan took the oath.

Same for Nixon where VN was told they’d “get a better deal” when he was president.

Very clearly, everything that can be done to destroy Biden’s earliest days in office and
later, will be done by GOP/Trump.

These are the people Biden wants in his administration –
and as Kamala makes clear “hands across the aisle” BS –

Yeah, this is a little like hoping the bull entering a bullfight makes no untoward gestures to provoke aggression.

The West covers its internecine squabbles and gears for predation, more than war. Few if any imagine that Iran can be profitably held, but it can be torn up and reduced, like Iran or Iraq or Libya or Syria or Yemen.

So, how will Americans adjust? Will we again have “Eternal war: at least it’s not {Your choice of opposition candidate here].”

As long as the US Empire exists the Scorched Earth Policy will be implemented to “tear up and reduce” other countries for gain and control. The Roman empire practiced this strategy with great success until they collapsed under their own weight.
The fall of every empire is greed…

What’s crazy is per reporting, there is concern among intelligence officials that Kushner and family may monetize intelligence post White House, and there is evidence he may have done so already. Additionally, the Post reported last week that Trump is in a burn-it-all-down mood too and wants to dig a hole that the Biden administration cannot get out of with respect to foreign and domestic policy. These are very disconcerting times, to say the least.

mossad and the CIA are thick as thieves! along with their british confederates in MI6, and various other allied ‘intelligence’ agencies.

I find it interesting that Iran having nuclear capabilities is viewed as an “existential threat” to Israel, but Israel having the same capabilities is NOT an existential threat to Iran. Now Jared is off to the ME, to tamp things down, ratchet them up, or pay off the Israelis for the ‘hit’ is anyone’s guess. But having proved “that the long arm of Israeli intelligence can get to just about anyone”, crossing them, or attempting to even pressure them, could threaten the outgoing or incoming administration with much more than just the loss of campaign contributions.

“United Nations weapons inspector in Iraq from 1991 to 1998.”

So, how did this author miss 5,500 to 6,000 buried artillery shells inside Iraq?
These were filled with virus, bacteria, and mustard gas.
We dug them up in 2005 and 2006 at great cost to health of more than 80 soldiers.
Many leaked. One coast guardsman got infected just by walking near a truck filled with
these shells.
