Preserve the Iran Deal

IranDeal.jpg

If the US pulls out of the Iran nuclear deal, as President Trump is threatening to do on May 12, we could be careening down the path of another catastrophic, senseless war in the Middle East. Your representatives in Congress must do everything they can to limit Trump‘s ability to destroy the nuclear agreement. Send them a message now:

    Mark Twain
    “Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.”

    Mark Twain
    “The statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception.”

    “My fingers feel my blood
    and it fills me full of dread.
    I am losing so much now
    that soon i will be dead
    tour of dutys over.”

    “I did my country proud.
    Now they send me home
    covered in a shroud.”

    “This small town boys a hero.
    Around my toe a tag.
    my only badge of honour
    inside this body bag.”

    "I"d been here twenty weeks,
    a war had to be fought.
    But the saddest part of all
    is i did not fire a shot."

    “You have to serve your country,
    but let us tell the truth.
    Nothing justifies”

    “So let”s salute them all.
    For nothings ever won,
    and let us not forget
    the Mothers of these sons."

    “But the saddest point of all
    and the burden we all share.
    Is that everybody knows
    that Governments just don”t care"

    I hate nukes, but after Lybia and Iraq gave up thiers the U.S. invaded those countries and if Trump destroys the Iran deal what incentive does North Korea have to give up thiers? The U.S. and Russia need to start cutting back on thiers, Obama spent a trillion on upgrading ours. The big elephant in the room is that Israel also with the help of France in the 50’s has nuclear warheads and with the help of the apartheid government in South Africa in the 60’s and late seventies helped Israel get nukes. Mordechai Vabunu exposed Israels nuclear arsenal in the early eighties and was in Rome when he was caught by having a relationship with a women who was working for Masod and was kidnapped and beaten and brought back to Israel and was given an 18 year sentence, did eleven and was put into house arrest and now still can not travel outside of Israel. I beleave Israel’s nukes are in Dimona in the Negev desert.

    “That Iran has not invaded anyone or, indeed, started a war in more than two centuries has become a talking point for those advocating trust and outreach to Iran.

    Here is University of Michigan professor and polemicist Juan Cole, for example:

    Iran has not launched an aggressive war in modern history (unlike the US or Israel), and its leaders have a doctrine of “no first strike.” This is true of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, as well as of Revolutionary Guards commanders

    Retired Congressman Ron Paul likewise declared, “There’s no history to show that Iran are aggressive people. When’s the last time they invaded a country? Over 200 years ago!” Richard Falk, an emeritus Princeton professor and early advocate for Ayatollah Khomeini and later a UN official (and 9/11 conspiracy theorist), likewise repeated the trope.

    The Iranian regime knows when it has got a good thing going. Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif yesterday tweeted, “Iran hasn’t attacked any country in 250 years. But when Saddam rained missiles on us and gassed our people for 8 yrs, no one helped us.” "

    I’m totally ashamed about Donald Trump wanting to pull out of the Iranian nuclear deal. This is how we’re able to keep the peace with Iran. The United States is bullying Iran and other countries in the Middle East because they want to go to war as the Israeli Zionist puppet.
