    Should the president have a meeting with Rouhani?  Should a "deal" be made?  The wrong response might provoke some radical reaction in the US.  Is the president walking back on his position?  Who should be advising the preisdent on Iran?

      It will be interesting to see how this resolves itself.

      Iran has been in the crosshairs for as long as I can remember.

      They have also been protected by Russia and China for just as long.

      A very high ranking Chinese General once said a decade or two ago that an attack on Iran would be considered an attack on China... which makes sense as the majority oil and NG produced by Iran is shipped to China and China built Iran's infrastructure so that they could access that oil and gas.

      Russia of course does not need their oil or gas, and they have different reasons for allying themselves to Iran.

        What we're finally seeing here with Iran is the destruction of American credibility because of President Trump. Now, that may or may not be important, but because of how much President Trump lies, it's almost impossible for anybody to know what's going on. Who are we supposed to believe? In order to believe somebody's story, they need to have credibility. How much credibility does the United States now have when it says it's telling the truth?

        Clearly, in these matters, countries are going to need to put forth clear evidence that what they're saying is true.

      I don't think it matters who the president's advisor on Iran is, with the possible exception of Sen. Tom Cotton who would just love to get us into a war with Iran. If "Warhawk Tom" misses Middle East warfare so much, why doesn't he go back there. I don't think it matters because the president doesn't listen anyway.
      Frankly I would like to see us using clean energy like wind and solar and not need Iran as a fuel source.
      The president tells at least 12 lies a day according to the media, including Fox, so is he telling the truth when he says that we were only "10 minutes" from retaliation when he pulled the orders. Somehow, I can believe that. I've always believed his naiveté and bull-headness would get us in another war. Oh, John McCain, where are you when we need you?

            wildernessposted 9 months agoin reply to this

            Not sure of gas, but we are of oil.  We import as well, when the financial end works out well, but we export more than we import.  We are now the world's biggest producer of natural gas and assume that we export more than we import there as well.

            Personally I think that is rather shortsighted; we should be keeping our oil and gas reserves for when the world runs short, but I'm not making the decisions.  And it IS cheaper than importing it all.

      Diane, perhaps we should look at what is happening with N. Korea for a guide. The N.Y. Times, according to CNN,  reports Trump is considering recognizing N. K. as a nuclear power while, it appears, getting nothing in return. Oh, yeah, he did get that neat photo opt walking across the demilitarized zone. Maybe he'll walk through Tehran or something followed by cameras.

        Tim:  There is a pattern emerging with Trump.  I think he plays both good cop/bad cop.  With Iran and North Korea.  With North Korea he has gone from bad cop who is going to "fire and fury" them to making nice with Kim and walking across the the DMZ and shaking his hand and invited him to the White House. 

        I think he is still in the bad cop stage with Iran using his "armada and complete obliteration technique.".  We will have to see if he backs off and does something similar with Iran that he did to North Korea.

          Mike, your "good cop - bad cop" thought gave me pause. And even though your "walk through Tehran" comment may have been tongue-in-cheek, I am undecided.

          I won't turn this into a Trump-bashing comment, or a declaration comment, but . . . I have to wonder if he thinks that way. He may, and it would be a kind of genius to do so, but, his past actions haven't caused me to think so.

          I am shooting from the hip Mike, and this is just a knee-jerk thought, but, the recent prognostications that the Trump administration may be willing to settle for a freeze vs. denuclearization leads me to believe that Pres. Trump lost this gamble and is now struggling to save something from his interactions.

          I am not greatly informed on the Iran situation, but I am thinking Pres. Trump's direction is not the most productive one. Actually, I am inclined to believe his position is a dangerous one. He seems to be forcing the Iranians with no option of compromise.

          A sort of cornered animal scenario. I am worried.

            The news tonight reported he was considering a freeze.  And reported a tweet from Trump that he was doing no such thing.

            The world is saying Iran is breaching the contract now that they are going over a stockpile of 300kg, but as per the deal if one or more of the parties in the deal did not fulfill their promises the deal could be treated as null and void. Since the USA broke the deal, I don't see Iran as the ones breaking the deal.

              Relative to the U.S. there isn't a deal to be broken anymore. I don't know what to expect from either side now, but after the drone incident, I think we could be in a very dangerous situation.

              Even a simple mistake or unintended action could lead to shooting.

                  There's no proof of those being Iranian mines other than the US saying they believe them to be. So technically those do not count. The rest of the world has asked the US for more proof and were not given it. Usually, in such matters, the country at least shares it with the security forces of their allies if not made public and the country that receives it acknowledges that proof has been received. But Japan, for instance, is still waiting for proof that it was Iran that did it.

                    You watch a different news than I do - they were commonly used by Iran and an Iranian boat was seen removing one that failed to explode.

                    No, no one watched them apply them, but the evidence is pretty conclusive.

    President Trump has already stepped back and has asked others to do the same, while this is all sorted out. If in the end a strike is required, then President Trump, will listen to his advisors and will do what he believes is in the best interest of this Country.
    We certainly don't need the endless hand-wringing as we had with Jimmy Carter. I'll never get the images of our men in restraints and blindfolds, paraded around in front of the cameras, as Iran mocked them and mocked this Country. They've shown us exactly who they are, restraint can only last for so long....

      One of my best friends was an Iranian hostage. A long time republican and former president of one of the nations largest lobbying firms--The Harris Corporation--which arranged most of our military weapon purchases, he detests Trump. He retired when Dubya was elected and attacked Iraq.


      He knew many of the players in DC, describing Flynn as "an arrogant little $hit."

    Trump's sanctions on Iran's leader are nothing but smoke and mirrors.  How can he  sanction the Ayatollah's, unless he  controls their paychecks? Sanctions are for embargoes, and blockades, not for specific people.  But naming all of those Iranian leaders sounds great to his ill-informed base who he needs to re-elected. 

    He loves to go it alone without congress' support and without coalitions. That means he owns it if it fails, but he will blame others for his failures.  He has an uncanny way of making himself immune to his screw ups.  He creates the problems and then back-off and to his base, he makes it look like he solved the problem.  They could care less that he created the problem in the first place.

    Steve Munichin says they are going to lock-up billions in Iranian assets. Where are these assets and who controls them?  He and Trump also said that Obama gave Iran 150 billion to support terrorist.  That money that was given to Iran was their own money that we and several other countries  were holding as a result of lifting nuclear sanctions. But Trump has used it as propaganda many times and his base believe him.

        Ken,

        Your admiration for Trump confounds me and we couldn't be farther apart, but your brief, concise statement here is spot on. I'm generally in agreement with your assessments of the political landscape.

        1. Ken Burgess profile image91
          Ken Burgessposted 9 months agoin reply to this

          Admiration is a strong word, and doesn't fit my position or opinion on Trump.

          I have a very simple measuring stick really, things like what is best for America, what is best for my economic situation, what is best for the future my children.

          Whether the President comes across as sophisticated and articulate or a burly bear, whether he is pleasant or insulting, I couldn't care less... its the economy and technology and our freedoms that matter.

          I use common sense, experience, and no political party loyalty to come to my assessments, so if you find yourself in agreement with them, it is likely because you have a substantial amount of common sense and are not  particularly beholden to a specific party/belief/fanaticism.

              Reality, reason, self-interest, and capitalism... throw in a bit of believing we should strive to uplift humanity and better our society and that sums up my 'political views' as much as anything I suppose.

              But the word 'admire' though, I just don't hold politics or ideologies in high enough esteem to use it on behalf of Rand or Trump.

              I would likely use it for Nikola Tesla, also Elon Musk if he actually sees through his goals of transforming transportation and reaching Mars (he is getting closer to making those things a reality but he's not there yet) people who have invented and accomplished things which transformed and impacted civilization with their far ranging projections for the future of humanity in positive ways that almost no one else has.

                Interesting, your description pretty closely aligns with mine, yet we seem to disagree on quite a lot. My lack of support for most Republican candidates stems ultimately from how they treat people. Even today, we still have Republicans talking about killing all homosexuals. I just can't align myself with a party that supports such statements, implicitly or explicitly. Saying climate change is a hoax drives me crazy as well. I just can't trust anyone who doesn't understand basic science. They don't have to agree on the solutions, but the science is clear.

                I do admire your willingness to cite self-interest as a driver. Everyone, whether they admit so or not, is driven by self-interest. This is often where Democrats go off the rails, suggesting that they're doing everything for the good of everyone else.

                I suppose I'm not quite as wedded to capitalism as a principle. If there's equality of opportunity, then yes, but so much seems twisted to advantage the wealthy and super-wealthy that our current idea of capitalism has become quite perverted - not that the wealthy and super-wealthy haven't always had an advantage.

                  So much to reply to here.

                  I don't think it matters whether Republican or Democrat, both parties harbor fringe elements that want to do the worst, such as you noted.  If you think all those who are in the Democratic Party that support Sharia Law also support Homosexuality, you are deluding yourself.

                  Climate change occurs, that is a fact, what is its cause is debatable, the part that is a hoax is TAXING people for their carbon footprint... it is just one more way the government wants to take control, of you and your income.

                  I have often stated for an example of this: the government has a fleet of over 300,000 vehicles (not including the military or postal service)... they are all ICE vehicles.  If they wanted to do something for the environment they could easily say that all Federal vehicles must be EV... they do no such thing, they don't even give tax deductions anymore to those who buy EVs.

                  So the truth is... the Paris Accord, and any talk of a Green New Deal, is not about fixing the problems... its about control and taxation.  They are just masking it in a cause that people will support.  Because no one will support a tax called 'allowed to live' tax. Or a 'take your freedoms away' Law.

                  I try and look to see what is really there, I don't accept the propaganda at face value, and I certainly don't trust the media to tell the truth.

                    See, this is where common sense seems to go out the window with you.

                    Please show me where any Democrat supports Sharia law. I suppose that's possible (and perhaps you're just using it as an extreme example because you once read about one Democrat who supported Sharia law - but again, that's a typical Republican dog whistle). Like you say - a fringe person. The problem with Republicans is, death for homosexuals isn't fringe. Just look at our Vice President.

                    Second, the phrase "climate change occurs" is a typical Republican phrase used to suggest that the current problem is one that has been going on for ages because the climate has always changed. This is, in fact, not true. The current man-made rise in carbon dioxide and resulting warming of the earth is something new and serious.

                    The solutions, I will agree, vary, and some are nuts. That said, common sense solutions for reducing greenhouse gases are not a hoax. I also generally agree that unless there is some overall agreement from all countries, forcing restrictions on the U.S. while China goes nuts seems really counter-productive.

        Ken, you ask for "a clear and decisive better alternative" to the belligerent approach that has brought us to the brink of war with Iran.

        Perhaps you mean something like using the heaviest international sanctions ever imposed to bring Iran to the negotiating table; then, along with China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, Germany, and the European Union, working out a deal with Iran that has stringent oversight to insure they don't get nuclear weapons; then instituting an ongoing, comprehensive and technologically sophisticated inspection regime that conclusively shows, according to every signatory, including U. S. experts, that Iran is fulfilling its responsibilities under the agreement.

        Would something like that qualify as a better alternative than what we are doing now?

    Why would The GOP Senate be fool enough to give Trump Carte-Blanche in stirring up military confrontation with Iran without prior congressional approval? Has Trump hypnotized them all? Do they not realize the danger of giving a man like this unprecedented and unbridled authority.

    An attack on Israel by Iran is not reason in of itself to attack Iran in my opinion.

      What about the 20 steps into NK for a photo op.  Ivanka and Jared also took a little walk..  This will really enhance their resumes and abiility to deal internationally before and after they leave office.

    There's a reason no one takes him seriously not for any issue, not even the Iran issue.
