Iran is not Yemen

From Moon of Alabama:

With a very belligerent speech Trump nixed the nuclear deal with Iran. He also lied a lot in it. Neither is a surprise. The United States only keeps agreements as long as they are to its short term advantage – just ask native Americans. One can never count on the U.S. to keep its word.

Trump will reimpose U.S. sanctions on Iran because:

  • The nuclear deal was negotiated by the Obama administration and thus must be bad;

  • Israel wants to keep Iran as the boogeyman;

  • the Zionists and right wing nuts in the U.S. want the U.S. to attack Iran;

  • MAGA – Trump needs Iran as enemy of the Gulf states to sell more U.S. weapons.

Iran will largely stick to the nuclear deal if the EU effectively defends it and does not hinder Iranian deals with European companies. If the EU fails to do so the nuclear agreement will be null and void. Iran will leave the deal. The neoliberal Rouhani government that agreed to the deal will fall and the conservatives will be back. They will defend Iran’s sovereignty at all costs…

Iran has not only new allies but gained in the Middle East because of U.S., Israeli and Saudi stupidity.

From the comments:

I myself can’t listen to the dotard….

This deal was not a treaty with advice and consent by the Senate according to the Constitution. As long as some presidents ignore the Constitution and make agreements on their own with other countries, they shouldn’t be surprised when other presidents nullify them…

The change also reduces U.S. influence in Europe and elsewhere, which is not a bad thing because it reduces U.S. world hegemony…

[A]lways a good sign when a war criminal named “mad dog” is the voice of reason…

Trump’s approach of threatening others with huge consequences worked. It worked with N Korea, it worked with the China trade war, and it worked with Russia. Now he will do the same with Iran…

China and Russia could not have asked for Trump to do more…

Netanyahu: “That “new weapon” is something no Zionist can defeat as it’s psychological–Fearlessness in the face of Zionist provocations and undying faith in Zionism’s eventual defeat. It’s something Hezbollah was able to instill in its people and is spreading within Lebanon, and all Syrians are learning it too–this weapon’s not restricted to just Shiites, but is multiconfessional. The same fearlessness is seen in Houthis. And many Iraqis learned how to use that weapon against the Outlaw US Empire’s occupation. For a long time the unofficial slogan of Zionists and the Outlaw US Empire was: We don’t care if they hate us just as long as the fear us. Well, fear has vanished from the formula–just look at Gazans!”..

Trump has embarked on the journey that will result in the Outlaw US Empire finally becoming an outcast nation–universally unloved and unwanted except by the Zionist settler state, no longer feared, just hated…

The fact is, Israel has a functioning airforce, but nothing else…

Zionism is the Empire; it looms over all geopolitics and I don’t see any significant resistance that is adversely affecting its expansion. The only countries that could pose a threat are top oil producers still resisting this expansion, Iran being top of the list.
