Trump Regime an Enemy of Peace, Equity and Justice
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
So are undemocratic Dems. Both right wings of US one-party rule deplore peace, equity and justice for all.
Trump is a front man for dark forces running America, militantly hostile to Russia, China, Iran, and other sovereign independent governments.
Reimposition of illegal US sanctions on Iran, along with other hostile Trump regime Middle East policies, eliminated any chance for resolving issues diplomatically – with the Islamic Republic, Syria and Palestinians.
On Tuesday, Russia’s Foreign Ministry slammed US reimposition of sanctions on Iran, saying it’ll do “everything necessary” to save the JCPOA.
It urged the international community not to allow “significant achievements in multilateral diplomacy to be sacrificed” because of US hostility toward Tehran.
It’s perhaps not possible with large companies in the EU and elsewhere unwilling to lose access to the US market by maintaining normal business relations with the Islamic Republic.
Through its Global Times, China said reimposition of US sanctions on Iran put Beijing “in an uncomfortable position,” adding:
“While opposing unilateral US sanctions, Beijing cannot confront Washington over Iran, (yet intends) maintaining friendly ties with Tehran. Striking a balance is a diplomatic challenge…”
Xi Jinping’s government rejected the Trump regime’s demand to cease buying Iranian oil. Purchases will continue current levels.
Syria blasted Trump’s move, calling it driven by “arrogance,” hegemonic aims, and indifference to international law.
UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres expressed weak-kneed support for the JCPOA through his spokesman – “encourag(ing) all countries to do what they can to support the agreement,” adding:
It’s important that Iran and other parties comply with JCPOA principles “regardless of steps…taken” by Washington – stopping way short of responsibly blasting the Trump regime’s lawless action.
US appointed Iraqi puppet prime minister Haider Abadi called US reimposition of sanctions on Iran “a strategic mistake and incorrect but we will abide by them” – disgracing himself more than already.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif called the Trump regime’s offer to negotiate with Tehran a worthless “publicity stunt,” stressing Trump’s JCPOA’s pullout showed he can’t be trusted.
Separately, he said the world community is “sick and tired of US unilateralism.” Trump’s call for world peace is hollow. “It is not the first time that a warmonger claims he is waging war for ‘world peace.’ ”
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani blasted Trump’s move, calling it “psychological warfare against the Iranian nation (to) create divisions among the people,” adding:
“America will regret imposing sanctions on Iran. They are already isolated in the world. They are imposing sanctions on Iranian children, patients and the nation.”
Regret isn’t in Washington’s vocabulary, advancing its interests at the expense of other nations – notably by the Trump regime.
It’s the most extremist and dangerous in US history, waging war on humanity at home and abroad with no letup!
