Democratic voters have wildly shifted their “beliefs” based on the party affiliation of the president: during the Bush-Cheney years, liberals denounced war-on-terror tactics, such as assassinations, drones, and torture as moral atrocities. When Obama was elected, however, they completely changed their position.
Colonel Douglas MacGregor appeared on Tucker Carlson’s show to discuss the prospect of a war with Iran, and he warned President Trump of another ‘Gulf of Tonkin’ event, which was a total lie by the foreign policy establishment that was used to ignite the Vietnam War. Carlson agreed and mentioned the dubious gas attacks in Syria that were used by neocons to pressure Trump into bombing Syria twice.
Trump accepted Netanyahu’s presentation last week as valid reasons for withdrawing the US from the Iran nuclear deal. Daniel McAdams of the Ron Paul Institute says that the move could be taken by Israel and Saudi Arabia as a green light to attack Iran or even to launch a false-flag attack that would draw the US into war. McAdams says the neocons who surround Trump are running the show.
President Trump, from the beginning of his campaign, has been opposed to Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran and views that country as an enemy. This is despite the fact that UN and EU inspectors report they have no nuclear weapons. Trump, Israel, and Saudi Arabia support the current protests and are calling for regime change. The protests were coordinated across multiple cities throughout the country supposedly over an increase in the price of eggs, but soon turned into demands to overthrow the government.
The Trump administration’s growing use of bombing campaigns in Syria, Iraq, and Yemen has neoconservative war hawks rooting for armed confrontation with Iran. Regime change in Iran is the open goal of Prime Minister Netanyahu on behalf of Israel. Trump has named Iran “the number one terrorist state”.
