The Iran Nuclear Deal

Donald Trump daily displays his ignorance of history, of diplomacy, of anything to do with what happens outside of his buildings and business sites. Donald is very upset at the nuclear deal with Iran because, according to him, the United States is “giving $400,000,000 to Iran.” Well, examine the facts of this “deal.”

In 1953, a CIA operation led by Kermit Roosevelt(grandson of Theodore Roosevelt) organized the overthrow of a democratically elected secular government in Iran. This “revolution”– paid entirely by the CIA– led to the return to power of the Shah of Iran. So, the secular government of Prime Minister Mossadegh was ended. In 1979, the Shah was overthrown, and religious groups took over the government.

The Iranian government had paid for US arms. None were every sent since the Shah was gone. President Obama agreed–after an international court ruled–that Iran was entitled to return of ITS MONEY. This is the $400 million that Obama “gave” to Iran. Actually, it returned the money that belonged to Iran in the first place.

Of course, I  doubt if Donald Trump could locate Iran on a map!

Why Kids Kill

Another mass killing, another ongoing debate as to why some 18 year old boy who was educated in German schools after coming from Iran decided to blast away at a mall and murder nine people. Ali Sonboly and family  immigrated from Iran and he spent his childhood in Germany, a nation that has accepted a few million people from the Middle East. After his murderous rampage in a mall and at McDonald’s, ‘experts’ are now discussing why he became a terrorist.

Class mates indicate that “at school, Ali was often  bullied by others and really unpopular.  He seemed to have  hardly any friends.” This description fits  the Columbine boys who murdered their class mates in Colorado. The difference this time is that Ali had opportunities to read books such as “Why Kids Kill” and to spend hours engaging in discussions with angry Muslims.

The reason kids kill is clear –they confronted lives in which they came to believe they were outsiders and it was time to get revenge.

 

 

 

 

No More Death To Israel

President Rouhani of Iran has decided to remove the slogan–Death To Israel–from missiles in the Iranian armed forces. How about some new slogans on missiles?

1. Ted Cruz–Whee, I am carpet bombing YOU!

2. Bernie Sanders: –It cost $15 million which should be used to pay off student loans!

3. Hedge Fund managers: Come back and I can invest you and make gobs of money.

4. Donald Trump–head for the border with Mexico and blast the rapists!

5. NRA– I want to make certain every American has his own missile at home to take out intruders!

6. John Kasich: Don’t leave, I have to balance the budget.

7. Ben Carson– I wonder what you do?

8. Mike Huckabee– I will say a prayer to help you on your way serving God.

9. Rand Paul–Don’t go, don’t explode, just stay out of trouble.

10.Bibi Netanyahu– go anywhere but my West Bank.

North Korean Wants To Bomb

The Republican party and Israel leader Benjamin Netanyahu insist the greatest threat to the safety of America is posed by the Iranian government. Of course, in reality, the greatest actual threat to our survival is posed by a lunatic in North Korea who has transformed his nation into a giant military machine. Kim Jong-un not only issues verbal threats, but has focused the entire nation to the task of creating missiles and nuclear weapons.

Japanese reports indicate that North Korea is in the process of developing  long range missiles and even working to miniature nuclear weapons into the missiles. So, where is the threat– from ISIS with its 30,000 troops or Iran which now allows inspection of its nuclear facilities or from North Korea??

Oh, by the way, Israel has at least 60 nuclear bombs and does NOT allow UN inspectors into its facilities.

Iranians Welcomed By Pope

President Hassan Rouhani of Iran is now in Italy and among the folks he will be talking with is Pope Francis. I realize the idea of a Catholic Pope talking to an evil MUSLIM man infuriates good Catholics like Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio because their concept of Catholicism is to hate and hate. Rouhani is on a business trip to negotiate billion dollar deals with European business corporations. Yes, Iran will soon have returned about $50 billion that has been frozen for decades. NO,the money will not go to terrorists, but to improve life in Iran for Iranians!

I always assumed the Donald Trump had this great business plan, but for some reason he is not interested in $50 billion. Donald boasts that he is a very rich  man, actually, he has about $5 billion which places him way down on the list of our wealthy folks. He Donald, how about a meeting with  Rouhani?

God Bless Donald Trump

Once again while the Obama administration was trying to figure out how to handle Iran, our beloved leader and sage, Donald Trump beat him to the draw. Yes, Iran has agreed to exchange people held in prison, and guess who was the man who made this happen? No, it was not John Kerry. No, it was not Barack Obama, Yes, it was Donald Trump!

“I have been going wild for years about the prisoners(in Iran). I call them ‘hostages’. So, I have been hitting them hard.  I might have had something  to do with it(exchange of the  prisoners) if you want to know the truth.” Somewhere in Iran some religious leaders at this moment are on their knees praying that Donald Trump will not come after them. Thank God they did his bidding and released the four prisoners.

I trust Ted Cruz is  paying attention how a REAL LEADER functions in dealing with them Muslim terrorists!

Iranian Revolutionary Guards And Peace

The Iranian Revolutionary Guards have just handed Donald Trump a few hundred thousand votes. There are now pictures of US sailors on their knees with hands behind their heads. Two naval boats had technical problems and drifted into Iranian waters. Now that America has this sight, it will infuriate the religious and conservative forces in America. It simply adds fuel to the Trump rant that America has lost prestige in the world because we allow petty tyrants to push us around.

Reality:

1. The Revolutionary Guards dislike the recent nuclear deal. They have used sanctions to control vast markets in Iran and make millions since they can deliver goods from nations that support their economic plans to control the Iranian economy.

2. President Rouhani is seeking to open trade and commerce in an effort to reduce the power of Revolutionary Guard leaders.

This incident was deliberate –get Americans angry, end the  nuclear agreement, and allow the Revolutionary Guards to continue their economic exploitation of Iran.

Saudi Arabia And Iran Conflict

Iran is a Shiite Muslim nation of over eighty million people which has an army of at least one million, Saudi Arabia is a Sunni Muslim nation of about twenty-nine million people and an army of about  200,000. Iran’s armed force has fought in major wars against Iraq, while Saudi Arabia’s army has never fought against any group other than some guerrilla forces. So, what does Saudi Arabia do– murder forty seven men by hanging or cutting off heads, including an imam whose worst crime was to peacefully urge changes in the policies of the Saudi Arabian government.

The end result of riots in Tehran against the Saudi legation or bombing in Yemen by the Saudi air force which has never once in its existence fought against planes from another nation, bomb away at Shiite fighters in Yemen. Each side is now engaged in a  war of words. Each claims to be the leader of Muslim nations in the Middle East. In the end, neither wants to have a war so they each will assist in the deaths of innocent non-Iranian, and non-Saudi Muslims in the Middle east.

The Great war of Words has begun!

Wise Words About ISIS

Following are some wise words about the necessity of fighting ISIS. “All must join hands to put into effect an immediate end to the bloodshed. We must close ranks in the fight against extremist violence and terror, while abstaining from letting rage come in the way  of necessary collective reflection and wisdom for rational and joint responsibility.”

They were spoken by Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif who spoke with the permission of Ayatollah Khamenei. You know, the evil one according to Republican loudmouths. Republicans might reflect on the words of anti-Communist English Prime Minister Winston Churchill who explained when condemned for allying with Communist Soviet Union: “I would join hands with the Devil if it meant the survival of the British empire.”

Bibi Feels Better About Obama

Among the enduring myths concerning President Obama’s foreign policy toward Israel is that he hates Israel, he hates Jews, he loves Arabs, and he is a wimp toward Iran.So, let us examine the record of Israel-US relations.

1. Republican President Dwight Eisenhower ordered Israel to halt its attack on Egypt in 1956. His Secretary of State refused to visit Jerusalem but visited Arab capitals.

2. Richard Nixon refused to provide military aid Israel during the Yom Kippur was until Premier Gold Meier threatened to use atomic weapons.

3. Ronald Reagan sold missiles to Iran.

4. George H.W. Bush and his Secretary of State were despised in Israel because they opposed West Bank settlements.

Barack Obama has sent Israel about $24 billion worth of military aid.
