Trump Is Setting Biden Up for a War With Iran

Trump Is Setting Biden Up for a War With Iran

On Conflicts of Interest #42, Kyle explains how Trump’s Iran policy will position Biden to start a war with Iran. The Daily Beast reports Trump has delegated increasing tensions with Iran to Secretary of State Pompeo. Pompeo hates Iran and wants nothing more than to see American bombs killing Iranians. Biden, of course, will have to option to de-escalate once he takes office. However, the president-elect has assembled a cabinet of war hawks.

The latest escalation is the assassination of an Iranian scientist. Gareth Porter explains in a recent article that the information that claimed the scientist was working a clandestine nuclear weapons program is false. In fact, the “evidence” is from a debunked cache of documents that Israel has used to fear-monger against Iran in the past.

Kyle discusses how the government screwed the immigrant woman who gave Bob Kraft a happy ending. The woman will be forced to pay a $31,000 fine and her business has been destroyed. The claims that she was involved in sex trafficking turn out to be another government lie.

Kyle talks about the humanitarian crisis in Yemen. With at least 235,000 dead Yemenis in the five-year war, Trump is now threatening to label the government of northern Yemen, the Houthi, as a terrorist group. The label comes with sanctions that make it nearly impossible for groups to deliver aid. With 100,000s of children on the brink of starvation, aid is crucial to their survival. The UN warns the crisis will get worse if the US adds the sanctions.

Moving Closer Towards War with Iran

On Conflicts of Interest #40, Kyle discusses the assassination of an Iranian nuclear scientist. The scientist was murdered in his car. It is believed that members of the anti-Iran axis – US, Israel, and Saudi Arabia – are likely behind the attack. The attack on an Iranian citizen will prompt the government to respond. Biden will become president on January 20th, and the president-elect has a less hawkish Iran policy, however, it appears until then Trump, Netanyahu, and MbS are determined to do everything possible to ensure Biden cannot save the nuclear deal. Without the nuclear deal, Iran and the US appear to be on the path to war.

Kyle breaks down the 2017 murder of Kendole Joseph by two police officers. The officers that brutally beat the innocent, mentally ill man to death had their bid for qualified immunity rejected. Several cops who watched their friends murder the innocent man were granted qualified immunity.

Biden Assembles His War Pigs

On COI#39, Kyle talks about Biden’s picks for Secretary of Defense and State. For State, Biden selected long-time aid Antony Blinken. Blinken is a career hawk who has supported wars in Iraq, Syria, Yemen, and Libya. Blinken may help push the US back into the JCPOA and extend New Start, however, he will face pressures from his own party if he hopes to get it done.

Biden named Michele Flournoy to be his nominee for Secretary of Defense. Flournoy is a DC Swamp creature who founded CNAS, and West End Execs with Blinken. Flournoy is a promoter of the US government, think tank, arms makers revolving door that fuels militarism and nearly unlimited defense spending. Flournoy wants a massive drone program and the ability to destroy the Chinese navy in 3 days.

Trump Derangement Syndrome Broke Senator Tammy Duckworth’s Brain

On Conflicts of Interest #37, Kyle discusses recent Orwellian comments made by Senator Tammy Duckworth. The Senator responded to Trump’s plan to bring US troops home from Afghanistan by claiming that it would KILL US SOLDIERS COMING HOME.

Kyle updates Trump’s destruction of arms control agreements with Russia. Today marked the official end of the US involvement in the Open Skies Treaty with Russia. The treaty allows for crucial monitoring of military activities.

Kyle covers Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s recent trip to Israel. On the trip, Pompeo declared the pro-Palestinian BDS movement to be anti-Semitic. The designation has disturbing implications for free speech.

Kyle looks at recent developments in Yemen. Trump is now planning to name the Houthi as a Terror group. The designation will make it more difficult to deliver aid to Yemen and likely cause more Yemeni children to suffer and die.
