Europe's Shakespearean Response To Iran Sanctions: New Word "Unisolationism"

Authored by Mike Shedlock via MishTalk,

Europe is huffing and puffing and full of fury over Trump's Iran decision. The French even coined a new word.

Trump's decision to re-impose sanctions means a blanket ban on all new business with Iran, effective immediately. Existing operations have three to six months to be wound down.

The US's new ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, wasted no time poking a finger in the eyes of his host.

Vox reports Europe’s fury over Trump’s Iran decision, explained in one word.

European leaders are calling President Trump’s decision to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal a potentially catastrophic mistake. One French diplomat is so furious, he even coined a new description of Trump’s view of the world: “unisolationism.”

The phrase is the brainchild of one of the most prominent European diplomats in the US, François Delattre, France’s ambassador to the United Nations. He told Karen DeYoung of the Washington Post that the Trump administration’s foreign policy was a dangerous “mix of unilateralism and isolationism” that he combined into “unisolationism.”

Sound and Fury

Europe's response to Trump's Iran move is just like a scene from Macbeth Act V:

"It is a tale. Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing."

What a bunch of blowhard wimps.

Dear Europe: Grow a Backbone on Something Important, Defy Trump on Sanctions

He's gone already .

Praying  to the Wailing Wall ; and trying to prey on the rest of the world ,together with his USURY Masters (see his Goldman Sachs  government +Pentagram generals ). Installing a torturer, the American Mengele, at the  organization for black criminal sites and organized false flags  , the C!A .

That's the WALL he was talking about ; we all misunderstood him.

It is in your face ,and some people still don't see it.

" (pharisee morons) get to tell German industry what to do"

Thats what happens when they win the war (with goy soldiers) that they declared  on Germany in 1933

The same ones who are declaring it on Iran now but they have wised up. They don't come out and say World jewery declares war on Iran, like they did with Germany.

The ball, is really in Germany's court. If the golden eagle can stop cavorting with chickens, then Europe will thrive else, it's curtains down for the "cultured" west, and ain't that a shame?

That the mighty Teutones, who decimated the crack legions of a would be conqueror, in some Teuteborg forest, have been turned into whimpering dolts, whimpering "please don't hit me".

Are there no real men in Germany? If not, at least, find some men, even if the real ones are lacking, and stand up for your illustrious ancestors. The jury is still out on the Hitler period, don't let that make you forget Bismarck, or those that came before him.

As for the French, do you even remember Lafayette, or Napoleon, or more recently, De Gaulle? Why do you act like preening cocks, when you have illustrious antecedents?

As for the Brits, well, perfidy should be a cloak you permanently cast off!...

Iran is a member of the UN C24 decolonisation committee and supports Argentina's mythical Malvinas' claim. (How on Earth did they ever get on a UN Committee?)

How would a map of the world look today if all of the territory lost and gained over the past 180 years reverted to its 19th century status? Quite a ridiculous proposal.  Perhaps the Iranians just want the world to go back to the dark ages?

I'm sure there is a term for your disease...where every damn thing on the planet goes back to the Malvinas or some other such permanent obsession. Get help before this kills you. Listen to Roger Waters. He just may be the help you are obviously crying out for.


Mientras, Viva Las Malvinas, territorio nacional de la Republica de Argentina. Roger sabe mejor!

My way or the highway. No, international relations don't work like that.

(PS edited/expanded)The US is pretending to play as a global dictator just at the time when it's global standing is weakening, and such pretense can only weaken it further and faster.

The fact that only S. Arabia and Israel support the US's arbitrary decision and support escalation of aggression against Iran is more than worrying and represents a threat to peace and security globally.

If the US refuses to trade with Iran, that's fine. But to impose third party sanctions unilaterally is an act of aggression not only against Iran but against the world.

The US is precipitating its own isolation and irrelevance and will inevitably suffer the consequences.

It's the last stage of judaic madness, as the Golem USSA begins to break apart in its ever failing quest to carry out the ever more insane demands of its judaic master. The next stage will be when the supply lines break apart in Slumville due to collapsing credit and the refusal of real nations to give any more of their "stuff" for worthless printed judaic IOU Saudi Mercan petroscrip toilet paper dollah filth.


USSA is one welfare check away from civil war reloaded in Slumville when the ETB cards finally wilt and fail and the lurching unwashed blobs of protoplasm burn their Walmart People's Republic feeding stations to the ground.

All true lucitanian... but what happens when the US imposes multi-billion dollar fines on EU banks and corporations? The Eu can retaliate, of course, and do the same with US assets in Euroland... but that means a very, very disruptive trade war on both sides of the Atlantic... yes sovereignty is at stake... but so are the jobs of millions...

Of course, perhaps the fact that the EU will retaliate will scare off Drump and his bosses in Tel Aviv.

I think a more reasonable metaphor is that traffic circulates because everyone drives on the right (or on the left in some countries) but if one asshole just decides he doesn't care and starts driving on the left to cut corners or whatever, not only does he cause a collision in which he probably gets hurt, unless everyone gets out of the idiots way, the confusion caused in any case means all the traffic has to stop or at least slow down.

Certainty the idiot is not getting to where he wants any better or faster by ignoring the rules of the road. And, its got nothing to do with a world government, or a conspiracy of nations if the asshole looses his license to drive. 

You can call driving on the right a consensus or agreement, one driver can fuck it up because he wants to cut corners, but that doesn't mean if anyone does they get what they want. We just get a mess. The JCPAO, the UN and IAEA are there because we all agreed.

The other countries trading with Iran is not the same as "your wife whoring with low life".

If you've gone off your wife and cannot satisfy her needs after you made promises because you are incapable of maintaining a balanced and fair relationship, its not up to you to decide who she fucks, or who is or is not low life. You simply are incapable of choosing your partner in the first place or maintaining a relationship thereafter, probably because you don't appreciate the rules of the road or take responsibility for your own commitments.

  The EU/euro was meant to act as a front for US/globalist hegemony,

and NOT be a real alternative.

But the EU/euro have undermined petrodollar dominance. Inconsequentially at first. But now there are rumblings against the Empire's trade wars and militarism. As though there were "European" interests which should be defended. As though Europe should trade and purchase energy from the Empire's "adversaries".And the EU countries should pay for foreign policy control by NATO, but should not think about having their own military which again, could further threaten the Empire's dominance.

In Napoleon's day, trade with Russia undermined his Continental System and control over Europe. That was a major reason for his invasion of Russia and march on Moscow.

As Shakespeare is quoted,

what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive

The beauty of human mind and creativity is that there is always change and always an alternative tool when the one in hand does not fulfill the desired purpose. And, if the US had stated at Bretton Woods that the purpose of the Petrodollar was US dictatorial hegemony for the profit of a few mega corporations and oligarchs, I doubt any agreement would have been reached.

Also, I doubt the Euro is taking over any centre stage, gold convertible yuan, yen, ruble, dinar, peso, rupee, rupia now all can have a real value relative to their market, not relative to their relationship to dollar hegemony. And, more important we can perhaps get away from the power of the coercive threat of military violence dominated by the artificial subsidy provided by the petrodollar, which is at the origin of US abuse of power.

The result of the US's abuse of their position as the owners of the global reserve currency is that the world must invent new tools. The deception and tangled webs are the result of not accepting the consequence of ones own aspersions.

Monopoly is a game for sociopathic idiots.

Precisely why it is way past time for ROW to get together and sanction the US until it gets the fucking message. 

Don't count on it though, European 'leaders' have proven themselves spineless again and again, China only ever gives a shit about China and Japan and SK are as feeble as the EU. Only Russia stands strong.

Don't know what it's gonna take but it needs to happen soon. This has got to end, hopefully before yet another cradle of civilisation is devastated.

Couldn't agree with you more, but that's the problem with imperial hegemony only the yes men/women selected are allowed to reach for the ring on the elite merry-go-round. Goldman Sachs and Rothschild ex alumni are good examples. It's not that there are not better qualified realists available, its just the first rule of the system is to protect the system, but once the system is self destructive because it's programmed for the wrong ends, it may take some time and cause pain to retool but eventually, through a series of larger or small shocks, as the system breaks, such as the present fiasco with JCPAO, Brexit, or populist governments in Italy effecting EU stability, the direction changes.

I guess that's why history moves in jerks rather than in smooth oscillation or straight lines. But I'm sure that the sensibility, and desire for peace, prosperity and harmony of the majority of the common man/women as well as their innate rejection of feudalism will prevail and bring forth a workable solution.

Could be deliberate. The fastest way to get America out of the empire game. Could be that devaluation of the dollar, getting out of the reserve currency status and back to gold-backed debt-free money, is also part of the plan. 

Success through failure.

I have trouble believing it's what Trump is really doing, but it's definitely a real possibility, even now.

No fan of kikestan but the Iranians have said death to America one too many times for my liking.  Fuck em both.

The Germans never stopped selling to them the first time so why would this time be different?

Just wondering, but what do you think our slogans would be towards Iran, if Iran installed a *brutal* dictatorship in the USA in the 50's, which was eventually overthrown by the most religious zealots - maybe the Mormons or Scientologists but with lots of guns - who then asserted power. Blowback ain't fun. I'm not defending their crazies, just pointing out how it came to pass.
