Why does Trump hate the Iran deal? One word and it starts with an O, Obama. Trump doesn’t know anything about the Iran deal. Hell he knows even less about Iran but he, no change that to we are getting ready to get a very quick and possibly brutal lesson about the fanatical citizens of this very proud and devote country.
Trump has invented three problem areas with the Iran deal with the help of Israel and his clueless nationalist advisers. But his bottom line reason for scrapping the deal is purely egocentric, Obama is credited with crafting the deal and Trumps mission is to tear down everything President Obama ever built at all cost. Never mind that our allies have begged him to stay in the deal. Hell even his favorite television show, Fox & Friends, said he shouldn’t cancel the Iran nuclear deal but it can’t, he just can’t.
If Trump were smart, stop laughing, he would pick-up a book or two about the Islamic Revolution back in 1979 led by the Ayatollah Khomeini. Or he should call former President Jimmy Carter and get his impressions not just on the Iranian government but the people of Iran. He would learn, from both sources, a thing or two about national pride. You see the Iranian people don’t need to wear a dumb baseball cap with MAGA stenciled on the front to show their indifference to the world, they live, pray and breathe their defiance and their quest for independence every single day and they are willing to die for it, just ask Jimmy Carter.
The reason the Iranian Nuclear Deal is in place is the same reason the world wants a North Korea Nuclear Deal. The reason Iran wanted nuclear weapons is the same reason North Korea wanted nuclear weapons, protection from countries like the United States. I find ironic that we, the United States, want countries like Iran and South Korea to abandon their development, research and testing of nuclear weapons while we and countries like Russia, China, France and India continue on. The rational and fair approach would be that we all practice what we preach and move away from manufacturing and creating a nuclear weapons program but that simply sounds to logic.
Is Iran a world threat with nuclear weapons? Depends on who you ask. If you ask Israel and the Saudi’s the answer would be yes. If you ask the Iranian people who have watched what the United States has done to Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya the answer would be no. Israels Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has convinced Trump that leaving the deal will protect his country. But I think it will create a full-on Israel-Iran war in Syria which we will be drawn into because the American Evangelicals will demand Trump protect the land of Jesus.
The Iranian people remember how the United States propped up the Shah of Iran for decades while they suffered. The Shah wanted to westernized the country against the will of the people. In the end, the Shah and the United States lost and Allah won. I can promise you that people of Iran believe that Allah will prevail once again.
