JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: THE FULL IMPACT OF TRUMP’S THOUGHTLESS SANCTIONS CONCERNING IRAN MAY BE FAR DIFFERENT THAN EXPECTED – HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS MUST FEAR THREATS TO FILL TRUMP’S 2020 CAMPAIGN COFFERS – IT MAY MARK A PRECIPITOUS NEW DECLINE IN AMERICA’S POSITION   Leave a comment

EXPANSION OF COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY PATRICK LAWRENCE IN CONSORTIUM NEWS

 

“New Iran Sanctions Risks

“Europe, Asia May Rebel Against US Penalties”

 

This extreme and arrogant American behavior is quite threatening to everyone.

One minute, we had a set of arrangements with Iran with which most of the world was happy and which all informed authorities believed worked well.

There was only one known violent and dishonest leader who constantly spoke against it, Netanyahu, a documented liar and mass-killer.

A few minutes later, we find a world much destabilized by Trump’s mad actions of tearing up a solemn agreement, his actions taken only to please Netanyahu and Netanyahu’s chief American billionaire supporter, Sheldon Adelson. Trump, of course, will benefit handsomely in his 2020 campaign contributions.

And now, not too much later, we find something developing which threatens much of our world’s arrangements and alliances, again owing to Trump’s mad acts and, specifically, the way he intends to enforce them with truly massive sanctions which violate the independence and rights of many countries.

This is the stuff of nightmares.

The fears and insecurities of hundreds of millions of people are to pay to fill Trump’s 2020 campaign coffers?

There is no other explanation for all of this, for abruptly halting peace and stability and turning it into chaos.

Trump not only will badly fail in “making America great again” – a silly slogan if ever there was one – he very much will succeed in reducing America to a much ignored and maligned force in the world. Ultimately, the very balance of international arrangements may be destroyed with new and totally unexpected arrangements emerging.

No one likes a bully. And no one likes irrationality. And no one likes feeling threatened on account of someone else’s special interests.
