COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY SAMUEL OSBORNE IN THE INDEPENDENT

Iran will stand firm against any ‘wrong move’ by US over nuclear deal, says Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei
The US President called the nuclear accord ‘one of the worst deals I’ve ever seen’

Ayatollah Khamenei only speaks the most basic truth.

Trump is utterly wrong-headed in his every word and gesture towards Iran. He looks like a big dumb clown to anyone with some facts.

There is no other way to look at this.

Trump is, without question, following a script thrust into his hand by the madman, Netanyahu.

Every expert source worth listening to has told us Iran has scrupulously kept to the terms of the nuclear agreement. Not just “kept,” but “scrupulously kept.”

I remind readers that this is also a country which has attacked no one in its modern history (except terrorists in Syria), unlike both Israel and the United States who almost never stop threatening and killing someone somewhere.

What more can a country do to deserve being left in peace?

You do exactly what you are supposed to do, as confirmed by all observers, but you are still wrong and are told you must do still more things? Does that make sense to anyone except a madman?

In the eyes of Netanyahu, you have to leap, like a trained circus dog, through a long series of hoops he holds up, none of which have anything to do with the agreement proper, all while Israel threatens attacks and prods the US to attack.

And, of course, all while Israel maintains an arsenal of about 150 advanced nuclear weapons plus nuclear-capable missiles plus submarines (some or all of which have been rigged to carry a nuclear missile or two).

This is the most ridiculous charade we have on the planet, perhaps only excepting Israel’s completely illegal intervention in Syria – supporting phony jihadi outfits in their violence against a legitimate government and doing at least a hundred bombing runs of its own.

Of course, its criminal activity in Syria is aimed at keeping the Golan Heights which it stole fifty years ago, and whose petroleum and water resources it now exploits, and then this crazed man is demanding still more Syrian land right now.

And Israel’s criminal behavior towards Iran is based solely on its fanatical quest to completely dominate the region, behaving as a miniature replica of the US as it seeks to dominate the earth.

This surely is foreign affairs conducted as someone like the fascist dictators of the 1930s understood how to conduct them.

Response to a reader comment:

Trump is under the complete domination now of the Neocons in Washington, doing exactly what the ghastly Hillary would have done.

He has proved a remarkable coward in standing up for his original views. Lots of noise and bluster, and total capitulation.
