You mean like back in November when the Iranian regime murdered 1500 of their own people when they protested against their own government? Among the dead, were women and teens.
Or what about the Iranian militias who have murdered thousands in Eastern Syria?
I could go on with more examples, but does Norton the expert on foreign affairs give President Trump permission to open his mouth about these mass slaughters, or not?
Just to put things in perspective.
- The Iranian government as it is today is the product of meddling with internal politics in Iran by Western powers (UK & US)
- The reason why people take to the streets in Iran is due to the sanctions, issued and now increased by the US
The whole reason for Trump to tear up the agreement was to exercise not only international pressure, but also national pressure on the Iranian Government.
Do you really think Trump did not expect, know and perhaps even hoped for demonstrations with violent results when he abandoned the agreement?
This whole mess we are facing today in the ME is due to western powers dividing up the region for their own interests.
The UK and France however seem to have been a hell of a lot smarter than the US. They packed up and left a long time ago already.
Why do you think there is so much hatred against the USA in the ME?
Because you are the last colonial power that is still there meddling in politics, and if necessary by force.
In an amazing display of wisdom however has Trump made the sacrifice of the protesters in Iran a sacrifice in vain.
By taking out a prominent member of the government has he united the people of Iran again.
And finally, nobody cares about 1500 people (if it was that many). It makes for good political rhetoric, but do you really think anyone in the US government cares about 1500 Iranians?
We read it in the newspaper, shake our heads and have forgotten about it the next day.
Any idea how many people died by the hands of Saddam Hussein who was put in place by the US? Did anyone care?
I tell you what the US cares about in the ME. Three words...oil, power, money
Everything else is just noise.
