'Path to War': Chorus of Critics Warn Against Trump Sabotage of Iran Nuclear Deal

Jake Johnson, staff writer

Trump's decision to "decertify" the nuclear accord could result in yet another "devastating war of choice in the Middle East"


#2

Trump Is KKKaos.


#3

When obvious fantasy and lies take the place of truth and sound judgment in foreign (and domestic) affairs, and the overt subversion by a foreign power (Israel) over our foreign policy, Congress and president, it’s time to remove the person telling such lies bringing us closer to another war, and end the treasonous influence of the foreign entity taking US to war for THEIR extremist mythology and warmongering!

END the Israeli subversion of America and treason of American politicians holding (and demonstrating) first loyalty to a belligerent extremist foreign power!

It is significant that Trump constantly gravitates back to pressuring Iran at this time instead of focusing on truly pressing problems that our nation faces! How is it possible that the people of Puerto Rico, which is part of our country, are in desperate need of potable water and food weeks after the hurricane? They need power for hospitals and rescue/restoration efforts yet Trump’s attention is focused elsewhere by choice! To Trump helping the people of Puerto Rico is apparently boring. You get the impression that this lack of empathy is a rich guy thing. If you want something from Trump then Trump isn’t interested.

Pressuring Iran at the risk of war for no reason is more enticing to Trump’s ego!

Helping the burned out and still burning parts of Northern California is like doing a chore - actual work as a president - but it is not the flashy adrenaline rush that talking threats and war with Iran (or North Korea) on TV that gives this narcissistic princeling such a thrill!

Helping those who need help was never a Trump thing!

Look at me! Look at me! JHFC will someone look at the rotten prick so he can go back into the corner, watch Fox, and play with himself?


#6

Trump is KKKrazy.


#7

Folks: It is imperative that Trump’s cabinet invoke the 25th amendment and remove this insane, madman from office, before it is too late and he kills millions of innocent people in Iran and North and South Korea. Don’t forget that Trump does not need Congressional approval to use nukes!

The latest president, DT, fronting for the $$$$ MIC/Propaganda machine, has to make up for the latest wars of choice in the ME that have proven outright disastrous for America’s foreign policies. Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen, decades old disrespect for the indigenous Palestinian people and so much more leave our corrupt politicians led by this charlatan to continue to re-incarnate “nuclear” conflict with Iran. “American Exceptionalism” is dead. DEAD! And most Americans including our leading pols don’t realize it yet. The jig is up!
ALL those who oppose America’s expected “Full Spectrum Dominance” know that they MUST achieve nuclear capability in order to be somewhat left in peace and somewhat free of US Military/Economic Terrorism. Even if it is only one weapon! They will tighten their belts until they reach that goal.
Instead of living up to it’s dreamlike image of standing up for good, the US has totally wasted it’s global bank account by brutally charging ahead with the age old policy of “might makes right”.
The hard nosed neo-idealogues are still playing “Cold War” games and ruining this country. They can’t give up. To do so would put a lie to so many past wars we have perpetrated just to protect a new form of global empire.
From a president (Truman) to the latest version of faux-leadership, DT we have “progressed” with a policy of internal and external terrorism to maintain a leadership that ignores the rest of the world unless that world agrees with our way of (extreme narcissistic) life.
Secrecy, propaganda, domestic surveillance, ongoing attempts for regimental political thought in our educational institutions to the Pentagon’s program of millions in spending to promote our “Exceptionalism” and keeping the military in the forefront of the public at public sports events smacks of a declining ethos domestic and global power. Our ongoing militarized domestic police forces attest to the growing attempts at authoritarian control to quash the outright racism, hatred, division of citizens to “pigeon-hole” attitudes so as to force ordinary people to continue to grow “hatred” of the “other” instead of turning to the dastardly government policies that foster that hatred.
The whole country should “take a knee”.

We are in what is [via media] ostensibly a “democracy” but it is essential to remember that the media comprises the legacy and dynamics - and hence CONTENT - of the criteria to run a Bernaysian model of aggregation of power. This in turn is the 20th century version of COLONIZATION of ALL elements of a society.


#10

Unfortunately bucking Israel and AIPAC in favor of the US is not a good career move. How anyone can respect Donald Trump in his subservience to this foreign destructive interference is beyond me.


#11

Stupid, stupid, stupid. Trump hates the Iran deal because it was put together by Obama, who he hates. The fact that it is successful and is preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons - thus increasing our (and Israel’s, same thing) security matters not the least to the orange boob. This is the guy who campaigned on a non-intervention foreign policy, and to get us out of foreign wars started by his predecessors. Ratcheting up the tensions with multiple other nations, instead of trying diplomatic solutions, was pretty much what I expected of Il Douche, his campaign rhetoric notwithstanding, but I am shocked that more of the rational minds in his orbit and in Congress are not trying harder to keep him from trashing the Iran deal. Who can possibly think that it is a good thing to stop the inspection regime? How does that benefit us?

It proves once again that the President of the United States does not care about the country that he leads, or its best interests or its safety or well-being… It is all about him, him, HIM, same as every other decision that he has ever made in his entire selfish, self-centered life. Most of his decisions actually HURT the country that he leads. And his Rethuglican cohorts sit idly by while he endangers the country that they all are supposed to care about.

Sickening.

Well, with Iran on the right and North Korea on the left, we can be assured of destruction from both sides unless the Republicans act. Jesus, it’s time to put Trump out of our misery. I have terrible fantasies about his demise.

It’s OK Annie, we all do. Accompanied by many of his closest friends and advisors.

A spokeswoman for the EU was a guest on the PBS Newshour last night (Oct 11) and what she had to say was most reassuring…that the US is NOT the only nation that brokered the Iran Nuclear Deal; that it was a multinational/multilateral effort; and those other nations including all in the EU will stand firm in their support of the Deal. She essentially relegated DJT to the corner seated on a wash bucket in the janitor’s closet where he belongs. Her intelligence, knowledge, composure, and eloquence put the petty tyrant to shame.

Advocacy groups are sounding the alarm, warning that any move to undermine the accord would “open up a nuclear Pandora’s box in the Middle East” and place the U.S. on a “path to war with Iran.”

Yes, they are “sounding [Safe] alarm[s]” and MSM-style “warning” of the obvious, while using “objective” language that protects their jobs/positions. Why such criticism? Because they damn well know that purposely creating “path[s] to war with Iran [and North Korea]” Is the Whole Point!

For instance, is “send[ing] two strategic bombers over the Korea peninsula on Tuesday” a situation/circumstance where (actual) “journalists” or (Truth to Power) Advocacy Groups should be prevaricating, generalizing, and playing it safe (as a hidden focus)? Or, is it a time to Stand Up, like after those 16 Words about Iraq were exposed? This “Sabotage” is along the same lines – but eerily different: Now, it’s “in your face” – for they are so successfully empowered that they no longer feel the need to resort to drawn out Fronts; they are just coming right out and Saying What They Are Going To Do (without shame, remorse, or fear).

Again, they damn well know, just like the Protagonists damn well know – and this is not a time to obfuscate when the entire world is on the line.

Romans 1:18-21

The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.

Republicans have gone rabid with their support of foaming at the mouth right wing basket case Trump as president. Now they need to pay the price for such asinine politics. With the sabotage of the Iran deal and the of the North Korea deal, I will predict Trump is going to lose and lose bad on both of those international issues.

I dont doubt you for a moment, but I would love a link so that I can post this information on another website.

Here:

Multiple powers signed the deal, or it wouldn’t work. Still, Trump appears to be looking for any excuse to look “tough,” like a war president or something.
