The newest fray of blame Trump would have us believe that he single-handedly caused hundreds of thousands of Iranian people to rise up and revolt days after Iran admitted it had accidentally shot down the Ukraine plane transporting 83 Iranians and 64 Canadians many of whom were Iranian.
The left find themselves in interesting company – Russia. According to Russian news sources, the protests are a US coup – again.
And in response to the Suleimani take-down, the Ayatollah has determined that the Pentagon and US Department of Defense are global terrorist organizations. So not only have the left aligned themselves with the dictator, Ayatollah Khomeini, and the terrorist Suleimani, they have now aligned themselves with Putin. And by default, Putin has thus aligned himself with our left, the same left that has accused Russia of meddling in the election on behalf of Trump – when in actuality they attempted to support Hillary.
The previous rally in the streets of Iran was supposed to be the mourning of Suleimani, but as with all communist regimes, the people were ‘ordered’ to be present for the funeral – by punishment of death. The left in the US cried and grieved for the terrorist having absolutely no idea who he was and how many hundreds he had tortured and murdered.
Putin stepping into the fray is a grave mistake. Claiming a US coup is a grave mistake.
But Putin, Merkel and Macron are still desperate to uphold Iran’s Nuclear Deal that never was. Not because anyone really thought Iran would stop production of advanced nuclear weapons, but because contracts were on the table for billions in creating an economically Dubai-like status for Iran’s future.
Follow the Money.
In October 2015, Bloomberg ran an article: “Iran will pay foreign oil companies larger fees than it did under previous buy-back contracts to attract $100 billion of investments needed to rebuild its energy industry. The Persian Gulf state, once OPEC’s second-largest crude producer, will also offer 20-year contracts on oil and natural gas projects, Roknoddin Javadi, managing director of state-run National Iranian Oil Co., said in an interview in Tehran.”
In order for this to occur, the Iran Nuke Deal was essential.
In 2017, Iran’s Javadi stated, “Iran’s Revolutionary Guards are ready to help rebuild Syria and bring about a lasting “ceasefire” there, adding that disarming Lebanon’s Hezbollah is out of the question.” Boom – Hezbollah would proliferate – as in Suleimani – as in his amnesty.
In other words, Iran was counting on the EU, the US under Hillary, and Russia to plug billions into it’s state so that Iran could then plug millions into Syria so that Hezbollah could expand in the Middle East – under the guidance of Suleimani. The terrorist.
Trump destroyed that tit-for-tat. Russia, the EU, and of course, Iran needed those circular funds. And now with the potential of a regime change in Iran ousting a Dictator, it all caves.
Germany of course is at the forefront of the EU as it struggles to level out its own collapsing economy which is likely to spin even more dangerously lower as BREXIT takes hold. Merkel met with Putin in an attempt to embolden their relationship as they both concur that Iran is their only hope. That was before the citizen revolt demanding the Ayatollah and the dictatorship regime – leave.
Given the deals were with the Ayatollah, if he goes so does Putin and Merkel.
Meanwhile the weakling link that is powerless to deal with the protests that have wreaked havoc on France’s economy, Macron, is putting forth his best Porky Pig imitation crying, “me-too…”!
France’s economy is reeling and has been since the protests took hold more than a year ago. Bankruptcies, debt defaults, will act like dominoes decimating what is left of their economy. Tax revenue will splinter. And BREXIT will take its toll. Without the US propping up NATO and the UN, the EU’s self defense will be essentially nonexistent.
Pick a side – any side. Just make sure it is the right side.
Meanwhile China’s President Xi Jinping has chosen to focus on his own internal corruption and remained essentially out of the fray. Not one to engage in the cock fight, what is done is done, time to move back to economic trade and prosperity.
And oddly, the left could take a lesson from this communist leader.
