“I really believe that Iran would like to make a deal, and I think that’s very smart of them, and I think that’s a possibility to happen. It has a chance to be a great country with the same leadership. We aren’t looking for regime change — I just want to make that clear. We are looking for no nuclear weapons,” Trump said.
This poor dumb bastard stupid ass old most powerful man in the world.
Whatever Netanyahu, Adelson and bin Salman want and want him to believe is more important than his own lying eyes, which tell him that the whole imperial project is a giant rent-seeking fraud. It’s really too bad that Trump is such a bad person. He sincerely does not believe in much of the false religion in DC which requires a permanent American global dominance in the name of “liberalism,” and “leadership” and a bunch of crap. But boy does he love vicariously kicking butt and acting and talking all tough. And politically, Iran is the perfect scapegoat. Why would he care enough not to go along with the hawks, at least this far?
Again I don’t think that he does want war, but he or his “friends” in the region are in a much better position to provoke one now than they have been in a long time, thanks to Trump.
It’s just like Tom Woods’ law says: No matter whom you vote for, you always wind up getting John McCain.
Trump says he wants a better deal and that he believes the Iranians are ready to capitulate to some new and “better” deal than the JCPOA. That could not be further from the truth. If he wanted a better deal — say, longer sunset clauses on some nuclear work, limits on mid-range missiles — the only way to get that would have been to build on the existing deal with new talks based on mutual respect.
The same John Bolton and Mike Pompeo who are telling Trump that Iran is now hurting so badly economically that they’re ready to go along with some new “deal” imposed on them by the likes of John Bolton and Mike Pompeo are the same John Bolton and Mike Pompeo who told him the same thing about Venezuela in their last three failed coup attempts there in the last 5 months.
Let’s hope Trump is just lying and not really basing policy on these ridiculous claims.
