    Iran War Before or After November 2020, or Never??

    Interesting timing here. A war with Iran will have crippling consequences. It looks like there are some hard cases that would love to bomb the living daylights out of Iran...and to them I say, good luck! Iran has both China AND Russia on its side.

    https://www.politico.com/news/2020/0...ressure-418225



    Pompeo tweeted on August 27 that the 30 day period to snapback United Nations Security Council sanctions on Iran comes to an end on September 20, 2020. The tweet was bizarre on several grounds. First, the entire U.N. Security Council (with the notable exception of the Dominican Republic) had made clear that the U.S. did not have standing to initiate the snapback mechanism contained within the Iran nuclear deal since the U.S. no longer was a party to the agreement. Pompeo’s tweet completely disregards the verdict of the vast majority of the Council and pretends as if the 30-day snapback clock had begun.

    My dearest Aianawa, it will take quite a lot to bring down the military industrial complex. No president would do that nor another Gandhi.

    Only the evolution of human consciousness could achieve such a massive feat...

    that's it ... all this wonderful negotiation with the authoritarian nations of the middle east, including Israel, is isolating Iran and the likely result will be an all out war in the Middle East within the not too distant future. It is why no one has pursued this tack before. The global danger is Iran and it is why Obama created a measured approach to balance the consequences. Trump ... well he is an authoritarian madman, his only real concern is maintaining power. he is a sick dude.

    This is exactly what is happening, NAP. I figured it would be after the elections, but it might happen before. Netanyahoo has turned Israel into Izra-Hell and they rule the U.S. through lobbying and campaign funding, as much as any powerful American entity. Some dude named Adler funded Trump's campaign and he is going to want payback. Aipac funds both sides. I would love to know if that lobby was divided on the issue of Obama's very wise choice of creating a nuclear deal with Iran.

    Sadly, a war against Iran may backfire on the people of Israel and the vast majority are utterly blameless--except the ones who have drunk Netanyahoo koolaide.

    Carter got all the flack for the fall of Iran as an ally, essentially because of the long standoff about hostages. Carter tried to resolved it peaceably but no go. This was after years of the 'setup' by the the right. Carter went away with all the blame, and then Raygun took over as another authoritarian speaking the language of the new Iranian authoritarian regime and scared them out of the hostages. And he was hailed as a 'true' hero. What the f*ck?!

    This is precisely what I be talkin 'bout and banging my head against the wall, everytime i see a video like this OR hear another fantasy from the right.

    Again, broken record really, korean war declared finished today, if it helps, forget Trump as those that tapped him on the shoulder way back when are the ones creating peace. Think back, 2016-17 till now we have been told time and again, Trump will create war after war after war BUT instead it is peace after peace after peace, very obvious , can you see how obvious it is ?.

    you're ignoring the facts and the ramifications of the 'future'. There is a future and it looks bleaker with every step the golden one makes. He is strong force for evil, Aianawa. 40 years after Reagan's peace we're still looking for a way out and as of right now there is none. Peace at the expense of 'people' is not a true peace, it is a step forward for all 'authoritarians'. I thought WE lived in fear of the dystopian 'peaceful' homegeneity. It is the cultural-political paradox of the 'Age of Globalization' that the right can't get deal with as it presents a double-bind existential threat to their amygdala.

    As a philosopher would want to say. If one human being is not free then no one is free, if one person cannot find 'peace' then no one is at peace. Amen!
