Olive Branch for North Korea, Bombs for Iran?

Medea Benjamin

The Iran nuclear deal is on the verge of sinking on May 12, when Donald Trump will decide whether or not to waive the nuclear-related sanctions, as the deal calls for. While the world is cheering the upcoming meeting between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jung Un (including Trump’s fans calling for a Nobel Peace Prize), Trump is needlessly and recklessly driving our nation down a path toward war with Iran—and neither Congress nor the American people seem to care.

It’s sickening how we have a limited supply of Olive Branches, and an unlimited supply of Bombs and Bullets.

It is becoming ever more obvious that the Saudi Government and the Israeli Government are manipulating this whole over-hyped situation, with the full cooperation of the Neocons, by creating a false “crisis” where none exists. The American public must stop buying these lies!

A war with Iran is most definitely not in our best interests. The Saudis and Israelis do not care about us. We are allowing ourselves to be used. Neither Bolton nor Pompeo have our best interests at heart.

We are bleeding ourselves to death with these never ending wars in the Middle East, and they want us to believe that we need even more of them. If we do not awake from our delusions very soon, we will be assuring our continued decline and hasten our doom as a
Republic.

Unfortunately, the stock market bubble seems to have made us catatonic.

It was pointed out on a news program that North Korea can not fly its great leader more than 1000 miles—because none of their planes can go beyond this distance-----And this is the country all the propaganda has told us to be afraid of???

And Iran facing all kinds of economic issues-is this a country capable of doing the US harm??

Yet so little reporting on the evil of Israel and what it has done to the people of this region.

The war machine grinds on. Money to be made selling the army tools of the trade. What an unholy alliance of Jewish hawks, Saudi Sunni hawks, End Timers and Neo Cons. My God what madness.

And what have we learned Iran?
You better get the Bomb. And you better get one yesterday.

Especially when you consider the Olive Branches cost nothing, while the bombs and bullets are going to bankrupt us.

All they really need are good ship killer missiles and the means to hide them from attack from the air. They could then virtually shut down the entire worlds supply of middle east oil.
