All About Trump's Final Days as a Lame Duck.
« on: November 16, 2020, 02:19:50 pm »
https://mondoweiss.net/2020/11/front-page-ny-times-story-on-iran-al-qaeda-links-is-dishonest-and-could-help-justify-a-u-s-israeli-attack/

This  was reposted at antiwar.com, because that's what they do for a living. Even though they are mostly taking the Trump side as being closest to an antiwar agenda. Good for them if they can see a little deeper.

Pompeo is in Israel or some of the US's Arab countries they consider their allies.
 
Pompeo doesn't represent the incoming presidency and so some serious questions are in order for the reason why he didn't cancel his trip.

Does Trump want a war with Iran before he's kicked out of the WH?

Do Americans want a war with Iran to settle the score once and for all?

Should we be watching closely now for a false flag incident that will be blamed on Iran?

And if there's one in the works, how big and egregious will it have to be to justify war under a lame duck presidency.

(the thread on transition policy wasn't appropriate for this conversation going forward)

As an appetizer!

Quote
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is traveling in the Mideast right now, drumming up support for even more vicious sanctions against Iran, in part to sabotage President-elect Joe Bidenís promise to restore the Iran nuclear deal. Pompeo already promoted the alleged Al-Qaeda-Iran connection, back when he was the CIA director.

NYT: President Trump Was Talked Out of Attacking Iran

https://news.antiwar.com/2020/11/16/nyt-president-trump-was-talked-out-of-attacking-iran/

We might assume that the US would have needed to use tactical nukes, as has been considered in the past, to do the job.

And then for those who are feeling a bit more comfortable now that Biden is going to take over, there's this one.

They're all Americans so regardless of where they have their next war, Americans will rally behind their flag and support it.

For the news that's happening, go to RT.com first.

https://www.rt.com/usa/506978-trump-iran-crushing-attack/

Iran's attack should be implied as an attack on Israel and so if the US attempts an attack on Iran, the US will need to have as many ME nations as possible joining in to prevent Hezbollah and Iranian missiles from getting through.

The US needs Iran to even come close to completing it's  PNAC agenda in the ME and currently Iran is favouring economic cooperation with Russia and China. If not now dureinig the lame duck presidency then it will be necessary during the Biden regime. No more time can be wasted by the US in it's task of establishing their 'empire' in the oil rich regions of the world.

Neither can Venezuela and Syria be put off much longer. The US's window of opportunity was slammed shut when Russia came back. And China isn't sitting still either!

the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) agreement just signed: speaking of what the lameDuckTrump can't do about China's trade influence...



the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) spans 15 countries and 2.2 billion people, or nearly 30% of the world's population - their combined GDP totals roughly $26 trillion and they account for nearly 28% of global trade based on 2019 data...  China, Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, Vietnam, Brunei, Cambodia, Myanmar (Burma), Laos

Waldo, I wonder why I have 'modify' and 'remove' buttons at the top of your two posts? I didn't click on them.

That's a pretty impressive list!

Do you think that the US is going to sit back and allow China to become the world's leading economic power? As well as becoming the world's leading 'military' power in the foreseeable future?

The news I'm beginning to see at antiwar.com is suggesting that Biden is going to be very tough on China and we know that the Dem party has promised to be tough on Russia/Putin.

None of this news I'm posting on this site now has anything to do with supporting Trump. It's a forward look at the consequences of Biden at the wheel.

And don't worry about having to go to RT.com. I'll be bringing the best to this site regularly.

Now I have to go back to check on those buttons and click one if they're still there.

OH, and I have a 'remove topic' button too. Better send a p.m. to me before I sign off. Or deal with it in your own time. I won't dick around with my new buttons.
