BREAKING: The Pentagon is deploying roughly 3,500 more troops to the Middle East, one day after a U.S. airstrike killed a top Iranian military commander. https://t.co/l5825r1JHQ— ABC News (@ABC) January 3, 2020
We need to get out of Iraq and Syria now. That is the only way that we’re going to prevent ourselves from being dragged into this quagmire, deeper and deeper into a war with Iran. #WWIII #TrumpsWar #StandWithTulsi pic.twitter.com/nb8mLfiywq— Tulsi Gabbard ? (@TulsiGabbard) January 3, 2020
Can’t build a wall. Can’t secure our border. Can’t enforce immigration laws. Nope, no money, impossible, too unrealistic.— James Kirkpatrick (@VDAREJamesK) January 3, 2020
But we have infinity resources to blow in the Middle East. They just materialize out of nowhere.
I’m surprised and somewhat relieved that Donald Trump has chosen this moment to escalate tensions with Iran because it makes opposing him so much easier for us. For years, we have been dismissed as wignats and blackpillers for opposing Donald Trump.
Before this happened, I had no intention whatsoever of supporting him or voting for him in 2020 because of what I had already seen and documented on this blog. I expected that Trump would keep a low profile in 2020, portray impeachment as a Democratic witch hunt to rally his base and that he would withdraw troops from Syria and Afghanistan to create the illusion that he was fulfilling his campaign promise to end the “endless wars.” He could then run on his record of being the first president in a generation not to start a new foreign war.
As soon as impeachment and the 2020 election was safely behind him, I expected Trump to execute the bait-and-switch and a hard pivot into a confrontation and war with Iran in December 2020 or January 2021. I figured that he would be able to rally the Alt-Lite and the American Nationalist faction behind him in 2020 while retaining his populist base, consolidating his support among conservatives and winning over more moderate working class and middle class voters by portraying the Democrats as too extreme on both social and economic issues. It seemed like it would be too much of a gamble to go for war with Iran almost a year out from the 2020 election.
Regardless of whether we go to war with Iran now because of the assassination of Qassem Soleimani, the question whether Donald Trump can be trusted on foreign policy in a second term is now settled and the answer is NO. The greatest fear in our circles before this happened was that Trump in his second term would start a huge war with Iran for Sheldon Adelson and the other Jewish donors who fund the GOP after everything else he has done for them. The 2020 election is now a much more clear cut vote on a war with Iran because that now seems inevitable as long as Trump as president and Sheldon Adelson can buy our foreign policy. He has been steering us toward a war with Iran for Sheldon Adelson since the day he took office.
If you support and vote for Donald Trump in 2020, you are voting for a Jewish war with Iran. A war with Iran for the sake of Israel would start a regional conflict that would plunge the entire Middle East into flames. It would also completely discredit nationalism and populism by association and would consume Washington even more so than in the Iraq War. Nothing else will be accomplished. We might already be in a war with Iran before we get the chance to vote on it.
You can no longer say that you didn’t know. You can see where this is going. Are you going to be fooled by Trump and “National Conservatism” a third time?
