I was horrified by this.
It is bad enough that Trump is going absolutely out of his way to try to start a war with Iran after promising to end our existing wars simply to spite his predecessor.
It is bad enough that he is trying to create a problem – Shiite terrorist attacks on Americans – where no such problem existed before his administration.
It is bad enough that we know he is doing it all for Israel and his Jewish donors who are the reason we tore up the Iran deal. They hated Obama because of the Iran Deal which reduced tensions with Iran. It was one of the few good things Obama did during his presidency.
It tells you all that you need to know about Trump that he is threatening to blow up Iranian cultural sites in the midst of Soleimani’s funeral where he is being cast as a Shiite hero and martyr and woven into a religious narrative about Husayn. What kind of message does that send at this highly charged time? Is the message “I want peace, believe me” or does it sound like I am a barbarian savage who is determined to destroy your country?
I don’t believe anything that Donald Trump says anymore especially about his foreign policy. His actions speak louder than his words. Even his words also now speak volumes about his intentions. He is a liar and a con artist who told us what we wanted to hear in 2016.
Note: The message it sent to me is that Donald Trump is determined to plunge us into a war with Iran. If he doesn’t succeed in doing it before the election (due entirely to Iran’s restraint), he will do it in his second term because that is what his bloodthirsty Zionist donors want. When Trump starts a war with Iran, we can forget about anything else ever getting done.
