ARE WE AT WAR?

Do you think if Trump had stayed in the Iran nuclear deal, extended an olive branch instead of his middle finger, this would be happening now! Yes, Iran is dangerous, but we made them even more so, and we gave them the ammunition to cause even more hatred. All the other signatories to the Iran deal stayed on board and tried to mitigate what Trump had done, but the nail was already in the coffin! If we had stayed the course instead of automatically reversing everything a black President ever did, we would have had an Iran more interested in appeasing us and making diplomatic inroads. Now they more full of hatred and animosity, which puts all of us in danger! And if you try and tell me that everyone in the European Union and others was all wrong, and Trump was the lone mastermind here, then you are part of the damn problem!

No one trusts Trump. Not our allies, and especially not our foes. Members of NATO are forging alliances without U.S. involvement. They are patiently waiting for someone of intelligence to become President. Our foes, well they do not trust Trump to honor any deals he might make. In spite of Trump’s penchant for lying, the United States has close partners, especially in Europe, that might still be willing to believe U.S. accusations toward Iran if presented with compelling evidence. Instead, the Trump administration did just the opposite. Within hours following the Sept. 14 attack, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo declared Iran the perpetrator on Twitter, before briefing Congress or consulting with partners. In all fairness it probably was Iran, or Iran backed militants, but the point is the Trump administration did not consult with its international partners or coordinate any kind of intelligence seeking before making such an announcement!

My point, you ask? Trump is a poor statesman, a bully, he wants to appear strong, he cannot see beyond his own ambitions, his own preconceived notions! He has gotten rid of any intelligent people around him who would not bow down and give him automatic allegiance. Instead, he has surrounded himself with people who are less qualified, who are willing to lie for him, and this is dangerous. Trump wants a war, anything to distract from impeachment, and to make him look good to his base who like the bully in him. It will eventually get a whole lot of American’s killed, I am afraid!
