Trump Regime v. Humanityby Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
America is a pariah state, a plutocracy, not a democracy. Bipartisan neocons infesting Washington risk humanity-ending nuclear war.
They want sovereign independent Russia, China, Iran, and other nations they don’t control eliminated, pro-Western puppet rule replacing them – naked aggression or coups their favored strategies.
Had Hillary triumphed over Trump, preemptive nuclear on Russia might have already begun, putting humanity’s fate up for grabs like never before.
Rage for global dominance by neocons in charge of Trump’s geopolitical agenda may launch nuclear war to pursue their diabolical agenda – later rather than sooner by Hillary had she become US president.
Imposing unlawful and unacceptable sanctions on Iran, with stiffer ones coming on November 4, two days before US midterm elections, may be prelude to possible conflict with the Islamic Republic.
On Tuesday, Trump tweeted: “The Iran sanctions have officially been cast. These are the most biting sanctions ever imposed, and in November they ratchet up to yet another level.”
“Anyone doing business with Iran will NOT be doing business with the United States. I am asking for WORLD PEACE, nothing less” – while waging endless wars of aggression in multiple theaters and threatening more.
He’s a warrior president like his predecessors, waging permanent wars for unattainable peace he and extremists infesting his regime and Congress disdain.
Unilaterally imposed US sanctions on other nations are flagrantly illegal. Most countries observe what they categorically should reject. Compliance is complicity in wrongdoing.
Washington targeted Iran for regime change since the Carter administration – a failed strategy then and now.
The Islamic Republic’s future is largely East, not West. Brussels’ pledge to continue normal relations with Tehran has been little more than rhetoric without follow-through with teeth so far.
For nearly 40 years, Iran withstood endless US sanctions and other hostile actions, its sovereign independence maintained.
Tehran is committed to the JCPOA if P5+1 signatories (minus America) fully adhere to its principles – what the Obama and Trump regimes failed to do, the latter disgracefully pulling out.
It flagrantly violated international and constitutional law it doesn’t give a hoot about, doing whatever it damn pleases extrajudicially.
The JCPOA can only be saved if EU countries do what they’ve never done before – delink from US domination, abandon their longstanding colonial status, assert their sovereign independence by no longer serving as a US imperial proxy.
It takes a giant leap of faith to believe Brussels will act responsibly for the first time ever.
Europe, Japan, South Korea, and many other nations are occupied US territory – politically, economically and militarily.
When will they assert their sovereign interests above Washington’s? When will they divest from US dominance?
When will they decide colonial status is no longer acceptable? When will they mature and be a mensch? Their sovereign future depends on it.
