JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: MORE ON IRAN AND AMERICAN DRONES – TRUMP THREATENS “OBLITERATION” IF “ANYTHING AMERICAN” ATTACKED – RUSSIA ADDS TO EVIDENCE THAT AMERICAN DRONE WAS IN IRANIAN TERRITORY – WE WATCH A SICK DANSE MACABRE BY A DANGEROUSLY UNBALANCED PRESIDENT   Leave a comment

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE ON CBC NEWS

 

“Trump threatens ‘obliteration’ should Iran attack ‘anything American’”

 “Iran calls new U.S. sanctions ‘outrageous and idiotic'”

 

And Iran is right.

At a big meeting in Jerusalem involving Russia, the United States, and Israel, Russia revealed that it has additional proof, apart from that already supplied by Iran, that the drone was shot down over Iranian territory.

Since when is it a crime to shoot down a hostile machine, barging into your territory, flying very high up, with its transponder signals turned off, at night, and responding to no attempts at contact?

Moreover, a hostile machine sent by people surrounding you with a naval armada and with nuclear-capable bombers stationed nearby, sent by people who use similar machines, week-in, week-out, to kill innocent people in a dozen places?

America’s behavior is seriously threatening a nation guilty of no illegality and with not a single incident of aggression in its modern history.

And then it just keeps lying about what it’s doing.

Actually, both oil and religious differences have very little to do with this whole affair, which I follow closely.

You left out what is, by far, the biggest problem, American arrogance and exceptionalism in trying to tell everyone on the planet what to do.

Backed up by a Frankenstein military establishment whose budget the country can’t even afford.

Response to another comment:

Iran has said countless times it never worked towards a bomb.

They are backed by experts from other countries, including experts from the United States.

And no one has been able to contradict them with any real proof, although the loony Netanyahu, who loves war as much as John Bolton, once pretended he had some. It was a shameful fraud, now quite forgotten, even by Netanyahu.

There are important reasons other than weapons for developing some uranium-enrichment technology.
