Tillerson: 'Iran's Provocative Actions Threaten the United States'

The_Real_Fly's picture

It's all coming together now. All inside Trump's 1st 100 days in office, we can clearly see where his administration is heading toward -- all out war. It's fun and games now, up until when the draft is reinstated and your ANTIFA fighting skills are put to the test inside of Tehran.

Incredulously, our Sec. of State, Rex Tillerson, just did a presser, announcing the Trump administration was doing a 'comprehensive review' on Iran, followed by a lot of saber rattling.

"The Trump administration is currently conducting across the entire government a review of our Iran policy ... an unchecked Iran has the potential to follow the same path as North Korea and take the world along with it. The United States is keen to avoid a second piece of evidence that strategic patience is a failed approach."

The entire speech was filled with ridiculous anecdotal evidence, 'proving' how evil Iran was -- such as a photograph of a bomb scrawled with 'Death to Israel' on it. Clearly, that sort of graffiti and hate speech is unacceptable. We ought to go with war with them now.

Tillerson droned on, tediously reminding the world how fucked up Iran was and how it was the job of the United States to police it -- instead of 'passing the buck' down to future administrations.

Nothing says 'America first' like policing the shittiest parts of the planet -- all for the sake of proving American is tough again. Since we already destroyed most of the middle east, I suppose another war or two won't kill too many. We might as well do it -- providing it could stop the Iranians from saying 'death to Israel', menacing our boats in the Persian gulf, and annoying our good friends in Saudi Arabia by trying to sponsor more terrorists than them.

i have known a few Persians in my life. (The do not call themselves Iranians. They call themselves Persians) They can be hot blooded and opinionated, but they can also be brilliant and reasonable.

It is very hard for me to see Iran threatens the US Republic ... maybe they threaten the spread of the banking empire as enforced by the CIA and US military.

The tinder is set in Korea. All it needs is a little spark.  Push NK a little further.  A taunt here, a jab there, and ~20,000 US troops + unknown civilian numbers (who cares?) in SK and Japan will be sacrificed to the collectivist cause.  Then the US can unleash bloody horror on the 3rd world, including Iran, as they "protect" the US and the "free world." Too easy. GLTA

Returning Vets will have great healthcare.  Trump cares and that's why he extended and improved the Veterans Choice Program.  Trump cares, no other way to say it.

but he does not care for my increasingly diminished savings that have to pay for the "improved" Veterans Choice Program.

US State dept - Iran are naughty little rascals, so we should attack them a lot

SoS says Iran is evil because:

  1. they are not Saudi Arabia
  2. they are not Sunni
  3. they are not Israel
  4. they are not US puppet
  5. they are not enemy of Russia
  6. they are too big
  7. too much military
  8. they don't fight our fights
  9. they are too rational
  10. their geography is inconvenient
  11. Israel said so
  12. they make Saudis look bad

Therefore we should sanction them and blow them up.

Russia on Iran:

Lets give them some nukes

Lets give them some more S300 S400

Buy pop corn

Watch President Kushner squirm.

If nearly every Country in the World is an enemy of the USA, that means that the USA is an existential threat to and the enemy of nearly every Country in the World.

How long will it be before all those "Enemies of the USA"  unite together to take action against their common enemy?

The time will come.

saudi money buys the biggest of them, the asshole met with the saudi prince who gave him the number of a new suiss account with $50 million to stir shit with iran, $10 million from israel and $40 million from saudi.

every single politician in the us is corrupt to the core including trump who got back all the money he spent on his campaign with profits and interests, the swamp is as big as an ocean.

This has to do with that Russian Exxon deal you can just bet! It will be a concesion to the Neocons in the State Department to grant approval of a waiver for Exxon on the sanctions on Russia . This hypocrisy is beyond the pale and totally transparent. How could any nation contemplate any sort of deal with thesde guys? Sheesh!

"Good morning, Mr K. The man you are looking at is Orange Geesus, leader of the USA. He wants to put America back on a Nationalist track. If that happens, Israel will no longer control the American government. We will have to support and defend ourselves. Your job, if you accept it, is to marry into the leader's family and turn the ship of state back onto a pro-Israeli course. As always, if you or any of your Mossad assets are caught, captured, or killed, the Knesset will deny any knowledge of your actions....Good luck, Agent K. This PC will self-destruct in 30 seconds."

You seem to be preoccupied with the Jews of Israel. I wonder if someone paid you to distort good old fashioned anti semitism or if that is all natural. You could argue that the united nations should be responsible, or another body, to draft troops from all around the world. But what exactly is your plan about iran and other muslim nations saying they want nukes? You get they would be able to hold the worlds oil hostage right? you get that half of all americans will be eating out of dumpsters if nuclear war occurs right? Not A threat, I agree we are being lead to confront iran, israel and america both, but not sure what the plan is. Do you think if tokyo gets nuked tomorrow, that there is any reason for you to go to work the next day? Again, not fair but what is you plan. I would rather Israel take care of iran by themselves, with the technologies they currently have available, against A nation that has threatened the existence of the Jewish state. After they are gone we Jews wont have to put up with american calls for surrendering land to muslims to establish peace anymore. But you can probably kiss your pension goodbye for sure. As A proud Israeli, that’s not my problem.

As A proud Israeli, that’s not my problem.

The lies being spouted about Iran are indeed your problem. You do know, of course, that if the US attacks Iran, it will be a disaster far worse than most could have imagined. Never heard of Millennium Challenge 2002?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Millennium_Challenge_2002

As an added bonus, in 2012 General James Mattis was "troubled" by the results of a war simulation attempting to assess the consequences of an Israeli strike on Iran:

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/20/world/middleeast/united-states-war-gam...

So right away the sunken US warships in the Persian Gulf and the smoking ruins of the Saudi oil terminal at Ras Tanura will send the price of crude oil well above all previous records. In the US, the economy will nose dive as gasoline, when available, will be over $20 a gallon.

This turmoil will spell the end of the petrodollar system, and thus the US Empire, as nations beg to be let in to the Chinese/Russian replacement for SWIFT. And all this is just the beginning. Imagine how much worse things will get in the US.

Of course, with the US economy a smoldering heap, this means the end of US subsidies to Israel. It also means that hungry, bankrupt, angry Americans will be looking for someone to blame. For years the Israeli government has been cheerleading for a US war against Iran, so it would not be unreasonable for Americans to place a good part of the blame on the government of Israel.

And because so many people have difficulties discerning between the government of Israel and Jews in general, it would be both unreasonable and likely that many people in the US and elsewhere would blame all Jews for what had happened. It's not fair, but not unexpected.

Again, as you stated,

As A proud Israeli, that’s not my problem.

Too proud to accept that you've been lied to?

I am not preoccupied with the Jews of Israel- or the Jews of anywhere else. Remember, just like Islam, Judaism is not limited by nationality. It appears that YOU are preoccupied with Jews of Israel. Whatsamatta?!? Don't respect their diversity?!? Don't worry about the Americans, they have survived worse and done OK. They will be just fine without Iran, Israel, Syria and Lebanon. Knock yourself out. Nuke Damascus tomorrow. I am not worried about any pension and don't know why YOU would be? Threaten stupid shit much or are you just off your meds?

"Everyone is a threat, except Saudi Arabia."

 

Look, the LAST thing I ever want to do is be a voice of reason, but do you remember when the Saudis stormed the US Embassy and took diplomats hostage for over a year back in '79? Yeah, neither do I... That was Iran.

Do remember when the Saudi government kept staging those huge, televised demonstrations and those shitstains kept chanting, 'Death to USA! Death to Israel!'  Yeah, neither do I... That was Iran.

Do you remember when the Saudi government kept supplying money and arms to Hezbollah in Lebanon and elsewhere so that they could launch rocket attacks across the border at civilians, including children? Yeah, neither do I... That was Iran.

Do you remember when the Saudis built that reactor at Bushehr and kept pushing their nuke program, telling the international inspectors to go fuck themselves and denying access, while people were worried that they would supply a nuke to Hezbollah because of their repeated pattern of fuckstick behavior? Yeah, neither do I... That was Iran.

Remember back in 2014 when that senile, sadistic, Saudi asswipe Khameni tweeted, "This barbaric, wolflike & infanticidal regime of #Israel which spares no crime has no cure but to be annihilated." Yeah, neither do I... Because he was Iranian.

There are lots more examples if you need them and the Saudis are no choirboys, but they are not even in the same bracket as the Iranians. In a perfect world, we would get the hell out of that region and let them all kill each other, as they have been proven adept at doing for the last 2000 years. They do not want us there and we should pull our troops and our financial support and our doctors and everyone else out and just let them figure/fight it out.  We have enough problems to deal with here at home.

While we're on the subject of remembering things....

Remember when the Egyptians "mistook" the USS Liberty for a hostile vessels in international waters? Neither do I, because that was Israel.

Remember when Syria sold the US SIOP to Russia? Neither do Y, because that was Israel, via their spy Jomathan Pollard.Do you remember why the Iraninas disliked the US so much? Could it possibly have something to do with the overthrow and murder of Mossadeq in 1953 by the CIA, and the installation of the Shah and SAVAK - as bloody a crowd as ever was.

The US, France, and Britain spent 100 years teaching Arabs to hate us.

They learned.

While I have no intention of attempting to cure hate with hugs, at least I can appreciate the reaon for the hate well enough to understand this path needs to changw.

It's not about oil, though Israel would like you to believe it is.

Oil is everywhere, the world is awash in it. The US has an endless supply of it's own oil.

Big Oil? Nope.

US oil companies make only about five cents off a gallon of gas, on the other hand government taxes on a gallon of gas are around seventy-one cents with some variation by state. CA just raised it's tax to about ninety cents per gallon. Other states have gas tax increases pending.

It's Big Government, not 'big oil'.
