The Zionists? A provocation?

Finally, the stories begin to appear. Gambling over WWIII. Look! He's mimicking Hillary.

Would the Zionists nuke Iran? They're known for overkill, so why not?

What's the president's Iran plan? There isn't one

President Trump believes in the art of disruption, of deliberately creating crises to get his own way. That's how he operated in business; it's how he ran his presidential campaign. Now he's applying the principle to American diplomacy.

When Trump announced on Monday that he is withdrawing the U.S. from its 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, he described it as an easy decision: "When I make promises, I keep them."

The president predicted with breezy optimism that breaking the deal would lead to a better agreement in the future that would not only impose tougher limits on Iran's nuclear research but force Tehran to change its entire foreign policy as well.

But he never explained exactly how we'd pull that off. And that's the central flaw of Trump's move. It's long on self-confidence but weak on strategy. It scraps an agreement that stopped Iran from building nuclear weapons and replaces it with, well, it's not clear. Which makes it, in the end, a gamble.

What's the president's plan? Beyond reinstating U.S. economic sanctions on Tehran and hoping reluctant allies will play along, there isn't one.

Here we are again. Turning our back on our allies and standing with the MF Bibi, who always has that little smirk on his face as he wags the dog.

Israeli PM Netanyahu to meet
Russia's Putin on Wednesday - statement


Benjamin Netanyahu will meet Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday in Moscow to discuss regional issues, the Israeli prime minister said in a statement on Saturday.

Israel has been lobbying world powers to “fix or nix” a 2015 nuclear deal with Iran as a May 12 deadline set by President Donald Trump approaches.

Israel is also concerned that Iran is establishing a military presence in Syria, and it has attacked Iranian targets there.

Since intervening in the Syrian civil war on behalf of President Bashar al-Assad in 2015, Russia has generally turned a blind eye to Israeli attacks on suspected arms transfers and deployments by his Iranian and Hezbollah allies.

But when Moscow condemned an April 9 strike that killed seven Iranian personnel, and blamed Israel, it set off speculation in Israel that Russian patience might be wearing thin.

On Thursday, Israel’s defence minister reminded Russia of his government’s decision not to join Western sanctions against it, and asked that Moscow reciprocate with a more pro-Israel approach to Syria and Iran.

Netanyahu and Putin spoke by phone on Monday after the Israeli prime minister presented what he said were Iran’s secret nuclear files which document it having worked toward developing atomic weapons in the past.

U.S. and Israeli officials said the information showed Iran had lied about its past work to develop nuclear arms but intelligence experts said there was no smoking gun showing that Tehran had violated the nuclear deal under which it curbed its atomic programme in return for relief from economic sanctions.

Trump has given Britain, France and Germany a May 12 deadline to fix what he views as the deal’s flaws - its failure to address Iran’s ballistic missile programme, the terms by which inspectors visit suspect Iranian sites, and “sunset” clauses under which some of its terms expire - or he will reimpose U.S. sanctions.

You guys need to seek help, real bad. I would give you the name of a great Mental Health Provider but that might not set well with some.

Your mental health provider? It hasn't done you any good at all.

NOKO is long from over. You know that saying about counting your chickens before they hatch?

So, nuclear brinkmanship, you know, the stuff YOUR SIDE warned was Hillary's MO, is now OK because your human god DJ is doing it?

You folks sicken me, and every thinking human being.

President has a plan, only Stupid people that didn't hear or are deaf due to their Chronic TDS...

1. Reinstate the Pre-deal sanctions.
Germany is already pulling investments and stopping future investments
in Iran.

2. Reinforce the Coalition the US has Built in the Middle East in response to Iran's increasing move to nuclear weapons (Israel Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Egypt).

Wow who could have thought that Trump could get Muslims and Jews to enter a mutual defense Treaty?

Thanks Trump..

@JohnBrennan
Today, Donald Trump simultaneously lied about the Iranian nuclear deal, undermined global confidence in US commitments, alienated our closest allies, strengthened Iranian hawks, & gave North Korea more reason to keep its nukes. This madness is a danger to our national security.
