Be Thankful for Trump’s Iran Indecision… For Now

We can for now be thankful Trump didn’t kill people and blow things up in Iran yesterday. Even so, the fact he went full-throttle, and then backed off is worrisome.

It’s been obvious for some time now the president is in the middle of a tug of war between those who want to annihilate Iran and those who advise caution and diplomacy.
Trump, unfortunately, believes a raft of lies put out by the neocons. He demonstrated that this morning with a series of tweets.

Obama didn’t give Iran $150 billion. That was Iranian money in bankster institutions, frozen in response to the Iranian people kicking out the Shah and taking their country back from the neoliberal cabal.

Considering the fact the CIA overthrew the democratically elected government of Iran in 1953, installed a corrupt monarch, and piled on suffocating sanctions after he was deposed by the people, it is quite natural millions of Iranians chant “Death to America.”

It is disturbing Trump views the immiseration of the Iranian people under economic sanctions—in effect, a declaration of war—as a grand accomplishment of his administration, now staffed with neocons responsible for killing at least a million people in Iraq.

The illegal invasion of Iraq is responsible for ”major problems” in the Middle East cited yet unelaborated by the president.

It doesn’t matter if Trump’s spy drone flew over Iranian territory or international water in the Persian Gulf. Everybody knows what it was doing there and it really is a sick joke the neocons would scream about international law considering they are among its prime violators.

Finally, that general was lying. Vastly more than 150 people would have died if Trump’s attack had occurred, not simply during the initial attack but in the inevitable response by Iran and the escalation that would have followed.
