A Return To More US War Mongering.

If Trump has been as easily seduced by military power as Obama was, then another war and even more refugees are the future.

Iran test-fired a missile and the U.S. government went ballistic. It put Iran “on notice” — a phrase meaning little but with a distinct menace. The Iranians are furious, saying nobody was going to stop them from defending themselves.

Saudi Arabia, the perennial U.S. ally and unhappy with the Iran agreement, was well pleased promising to increase its investments. The Saudis urged President Obama “to cut off the head of the snake,” meaning Iran, even thought Saudi Arabia’s oil-rich province has a majority population who are Shia — the same form of Islam as in Iran.

The Iran agreement involves the six major world powers — U.S., Russia, China, UK, France and Germany — plus, of course, Iran.  Nowhere in this copious document does the word “missile” appear for Iran would not have signed the agreement.

So it was that the Obama administration put forward a resolution in the U.N. security Council to secure missile restrictions not in the tentative agreement. And it dug in its heels. Thus the Security Council Resolution 2335 passed unanimously. 

The U.N. and its Security Council pass all kinds of resolutions sometimes implemented much more strenuously than was the intent (as in Libya) causing chaos, often ignored (as by India on Kashmir, or Israel, and others) and generally paid not too much heed … except when countries find it suits their purpose.

Is it all the Trump bluster? After all, his much self-vaunted business acumen consists of owning one building — Trump Tower — and a minority share in two others in New York and a few hotels. These constitute a majority of his net worth. The rest is a smattering of golf clubs and franchises.

Mr. Trump will soon discover the world stage, countries, their political leaders and their people are a different cup of tea from real estate. In the first place, the stakes are higher … and can be deadly.  

And a war with Iran, a much larger, better armed country than Iraq, would be a disaster — its ramifications likely to be felt by Israel through a missile-armed Hezbollah.  And its large army with easy access to Saudi Arabia’s oil fields, via a Shia-run friendly Iraq government, could teach the Saudis and the Gulf States a lesson they would not soon forget — despite the U.S. base in Qatar. 

If Trump has been as easily seduced by military power as Obama was, then another war and even more refugees are the future.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
