NUCLEAR WAR-FEAR
THE COMING CLASH WITH IRAN
Pat Buchanan: Why did Trump and Flynn feel the need to threaten Tehran now?
Published: 1 day ago

When Gen. Michael Flynn marched into the White House Briefing Room to declare that “we are officially putting Iran on notice,” he drew a red line for President Trump. In tweeting the threat, Trump agreed.

His credibility is now on the line.

And what triggered this virtual ultimatum?

Iran-backed Houthi rebels, said Flynn, attacked a Saudi warship, and Tehran tested a missile, undermining “security, prosperity and stability throughout the Middle East,” placing “American lives at risk.”

But how so?

The Saudis have been bombing the Houthi rebels and ravaging their country, Yemen, for two years. Are the Saudis entitled to immunity from retaliation in wars they start?

Where is the evidence Iran had a role in the Red Sea attack on the Saudi ship? And why would President Trump make this war his war?

As for the Iranian missile test, a 2015 U.N. resolution “called upon” Iran not to test nuclear-capable missiles. It did not forbid Iran from testing conventional missiles, which Tehran insists this was.

Is the United States making new demands on Iran not written into the nuclear treaty or international law – to provoke a confrontation?

Did Flynn coordinate with our allies about this warning of possible military action against Iran? Is NATO obligated to join any action we might take?

Or are we going to carry out any retaliation alone, as our NATO allies observe, while the Israelis, Gulf Arabs, Saudis and the Beltway War Party, which wishes to be rid of Trump, cheer him on?

Bibi Netanyahu hailed Flynn’s statement, calling Iran’s missile test a flagrant violation of the U.N. resolution and declaring, “Iranian aggression must not go unanswered.” By whom, besides us?

The Saudi king spoke with Trump Sunday. Did he persuade the president to get America more engaged against Iran?

Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker is among those delighted with the White House warning:

“No longer will Iran be given a pass for its repeated ballistic missile violations, continued support of terrorism, human rights abuses and other hostile activities that threaten international peace and security.”

The problem with making a threat public – Iran is “on notice” – is that it makes it almost impossible for Iran, or Trump, to back away.

Tehran seems almost obliged to defy it, especially the demand that it cease testing conventional missiles for its own defense.

This U.S. threat will surely strengthen those Iranians opposed to the nuclear deal and who wish to see its architects, President Hassan Rouhani and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, thrown out in this year’s elections.

If Rex Tillerson is not to become a wartime secretary of state like Colin Powell or Dean Rusk, he is going to have to speak to the Iranians, not with defiant declarations, but in a diplomatic dialogue.

Tillerson, of course, is on record as saying the Chinese should be blocked from visiting the half-dozen fortified islets they have built on rocks and reefs in the South China Sea.

A prediction: The Chinese will not be departing from their islands, and the Iranians will defy the U.S. threat against testing their missiles.

Wednesday’s White House statement makes a collision with Iran almost unavoidable, and a war with Iran quite possible.

Why did Trump and Flynn feel the need to do this now?

There is an awful lot already on the foreign-policy plate of the new president after only two weeks, as pro-Russian rebels in Ukraine are firing artillery again, and North Korea’s nuclear missile threat, which, unlike Iran’s, is real, has yet to be addressed.

High among the reasons that many supported Trump was his understanding that George W. Bush blundered horribly in launching an unprovoked and unnecessary war on Iraq. (bolded by RA to refresh a memory)

Along with the 15-year war in Afghanistan and our wars in Libya, Syria and Yemen, our 21st-century U.S. Mideast wars have cost us trillions of dollars and thousands of dead. And they have produced a harvest of hatred of America that was exploited by al-Qaida and ISIS to recruit jihadists to murder and massacre Westerners.

Osama’s bin Laden’s greatest achievement was not to bring down the twin towers and kill 3,000 Americans, but to goad America into plunging headlong into the Middle East, a reckless and ruinous adventure that ended her post-Cold War global primacy.

Unlike the other candidates, Trump seemed to recognize this.

It was thought he would disengage us from these wars, not rattle a saber at an Iran that is three times the size of Iraq and has as its primary weapons supplier and partner Vladimir Putin’s Russia.

When Barack Obama drew his red line against Bashar Assad’s use of chemical weapons in Syria’s civil war, and Assad appeared to cross it, Obama discovered that his countrymen wanted no part of the war that his military action might bring on.

President Obama backed down – in humiliation.

Neither the Ayatollah Khamenei nor Trump appears to be in a mood to back away, especially now that the president has made the threat public.

--------------------------
The source for this may escape ridicule. Although, this is out of the mouth of Pat Buchanan and he may be considered part of the right wing establishment here, so who knows?

If we don't get Jeff Sessions through the confirmation process soon, I do not want to think about our future, because, there is none. In my opinion Trump really needs to "Clean" house with-in the Government it's self, FIRST . And to encourage the Democrats to continue Isolating themselves from participating in what is left of our Constitutional Government, they have become toxic Anti-American Anarchists , very good at promoting riots and chaos . Hollywood Style! :shock: :( :x


Or are we just Fated to become another Nation of Islam, like Germany France and Canada? :confused:

Robert Spencer and most dedicated members here were right. :wink:

President Donald Trump fired up the media again stoking the continuous fire that will last at least four years! Heck, maybe it will last eight years in total! :o

He rightfully claims coverage of IR terrorism is waning badly in their news feeds. :idea:

There's been a continuing genocide of Christians in and around Nigeria for five years :!: :( If an oil producer struck a new multi million barrel crude oil reserve over there you know that would make their news. :evil:

If you open your window right now, you will be able to hear the New York Times and the Washington Post and CNN and the BBC and all the rest collectively screaming, “Oh yes we do!” But President Trump is correct. He said: “It’s gotten to a point where it’s not even reported, and in many cases the very, very dishonest press doesn’t even want to report it.” The establishment propaganda media has taken this to mean that he was claiming they didn’t even mention the attacks. They did. But in virtually all cases, they did all they could to obscure the motivating ideology behind those attacks. :oops:

And well down the long page of fresh comments...........

Trump, whatever his flaws, is right now the most powerful force in the world for the preservation of liberty. I am not aware of a stronger or more influential source for freedom’s continuance, fragile as freedom most definitely is in any age, than President Trump is right now.

So, no wonder he is despised or at least looked upon quite skeptically by the Left, by Muslims en masse, and others like the Chinese, NONE OF WHOM give a damn about liberty. Indeed, they loathe it.

Donchaknow? Trump is a clear and present danger, to Canada AND the world at large!

That said, what happens when monitoring's not enough? Say radar shows The Donald's coming too close for comfort to The Great White North. What's Trudeau gonna do? Send out the Mounties?

How do you stop an uncontrollable force of nature? Answer: you don't. It'll be interesting to see what happens comes time Trump wants to visit Canada to talk turkey with Trudeau and Dudley Do-Right tells him he can't.

Resist We Much Eh’ – Bambi is Coming To The White House Monday…

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is scheduled to visit President Donald Trump at the White House on Monday.

Global tender sensibility safe-space liberals are urging Bambi, the leader of ‘the resistance‘ or something, to confront the horrible Trump:

[…]  The Washington Post has also described Mr. Trudeau as “a leader of the liberal global resistance to President Trump” and said his message of “inclusivity and multiculturalism stands in contrast” to that of the U.S. leader.

Amnesty International picked up on that theme in an open letter to Mr. Trudeau on Thursday, urging him to confront the President about human rights – from the ban on Syrian refugees and citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries to his support for torture.

“Prime Minister Trudeau cannot equivocate when he sits down for his first face-to-face meet with President Trump. He must make it clear thatCanada needs and expects the President to advance human-rights protections at home and abroad; not set it back,” said Béatrice Vaugrante, director-general of Amnesty International Canada.  (read more)

Um, yeah… let us know how that works out for ya…. eh’?

Merkel Will Pay Migrants Millions To Leave Germany


Chancellor Angela Merkel is setting aside €90m (£76m) in taxpayers’ money to create a fund which will pay migrants to withdraw their asylum applications and leave Germany voluntarily.

http://www.breitbart.com/london/2017/02 ... e-germany/

The handouts will form part of a 16-point plan to speed up the removal of rejected asylum seekers, after Tunisian migrant Anis Amri murdered a Polish lorry driver, hijacked his vehicle and drove it into a Christmas market in Berlin while awaiting deportation.

Michael Flynn Resigns From the White House
He was the president’s top national security aide not long ago. But a growing scandal over his contacts with the Russian government made it impossible for him to stay.

Retired Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn resigned as the White House national security adviser Monday night after less than a month in the position.
The controversy around Flynn’s secret talks with the Russian ambassador is the first to draw real blood from the Trump White House, which has seen a series of cascading crises during its first three and a half weeks in office.

"Unfortunately, because of the fast pace of events, I inadvertently briefed the Vice President Elect and others with incomplete information regarding my phone calls with the Russian Ambassador. I have sincerely apologized to the President and the Vice President, and they have accepted my apology," wrote Flynn in his resignation letter Tuesday evening. "I am tendering my resignation, honored to have served our nation and the American people in such a distinguished way."
