Of of all the idiotic decisions made by Trump in the last year and change, I was most prepared for this.
It was something we all knew was near and dear to the President since the early days on the campaign trail, and it was pretty much agreed upon at the time to ignore the anti-Iran blustering due to all the good we were being promised at the time.
Maybe we thought that Trump would just ignore the whole situation while in office, or maybe we thought that the deal would be torn up, but we would have such good relations with Russia that it would all have been bluster.
But because none of this has materialized, I can’t help but start to worry.
President Donald Trump withdrew the U.S. from the landmark nuclear accord with Iran on Tuesday, abruptly restoring harsh sanctions in the most consequential foreign policy action of his presidency. He declared he was making the world safer, but he also deepened his isolation on the world stage and revived doubts about American credibility.
The 2015 agreement, which was negotiated by the Obama administration and included Germany, France and Britain, had lifted most U.S. and international economic sanctions against Iran. In exchange, Iran agreed to restrictions on its nuclear program, making it impossible to produce a bomb and establishing rigorous inspections.
But Trump, a severe critic of the deal dating back to his presidential campaign, said in a televised address from the White House that it was “defective at its core.”
U.S. allies in Europe had tried to keep him in and lamented his move to abandon it. Iran’s leader ominously warned his country might “start enriching uranium more than before.”
The sanctions seek to punish Iran for its nuclear program by limiting its ability to sell oil or do business overseas, affecting a wide range of Iranian economic sectors and individuals.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu welcomed Trump’s announcement as a “historic move.”
Trump, who repeatedly criticized the accord during his presidential campaign, said Tuesday that documents recently released by Netanyahu showed Iran had attempted to develop a nuclear bomb in the previous decade, especially before 2003. Although Trump gave no explicit evidence that Iran violated the deal, he said Iran had clearly lied in the past and could not be trusted.
It didn’t take long for Israel to strike, either.
Due to the excited nature of these twisted rats, I’m assuming they know America will have their back fully if and when the Iranians decide to fight fire with fire.
An Iranian military base in Syria was attacked on Tuesday, sources confirmed to Fox News.
At least nine people died in the attack, Rami Abdel Rahman, director of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights in Britain, told AFP. The report could not be independently confirmed by Fox News.
The military compound that was hit is located about 10 miles south of the Syrian capital city of Damascus, western military sources said.
Syrian TV reported that it was an Israeli airstrike and that Syrian air defense systems shot down two missiles.
The attack happened in Kisweh, according to the official news agency SANA, about an hour after President Trump’s announcemed that he would be pulling the U.S. out of the Iran nuclear deal.
On Tuesday, the Israeli military said they’d identified “irregular activity of Iranian forces in Syria” and urged citizens in Golan Heights near the border to ready bomb shelters.

It’s probably because I’m a bit more aggressive than the average Goy, but if I were Iran, I would start preparing for the inevitable, see what can be done to restart the nuclear weapons program, and begin full mobilization to combat what America and Israel have planned.
Because it’s not like peaceful pleading will work here – ZOG does not respect the concept of international law, and likely knows that each passing day means that a successful war will be all the more harder to wage.
My only hope is that Russia steps in to provide concrete support to its gallant Persian ally – Vladimir Putin for all his positives too often likes to hide his hand, and would do far better here by openly declaring that an attack on Iran is an attack on the Motherland.
Let the ball then fall into America’s court, and let the MAGA Movement at last disgrace itself beyond measure by doing what even George W. Bush refused to even attempt.
