Greener than fossil fuels. Iran leading the green revolution?

Sure glad Trump blew up the snapback option and unleashed China-Iran trade.

My hometown is known as "Tehrangeles," there are so many Persians (as most prefer to be called) living there. Wonderful people with a cradle-of-civilization culture. The US and Iran could be natural allies, something that would benefit both sides and the entire world. Two bad about the hard-liners on both sides.

Iran killed 241 Americans through their proxy Hezbollah in 1983 and now try to disrupt world shipping with the Houthis. Not saying there shouldn't be rapprochement but it would take some serious changes in policy on the Iranian side primarily.

There is little use for commercial power generation with Uranium enriched above 6%. That means anything above 20% is for weapons, which will be used against westerners when Iran starts selling it with missiles and how-to guides to warlords in the middle east, Africa, Asia and South America.

I truly hope I'm wrong, but I'm not.

Trump is a very reckless man to scrap the JCPOA and the assassination of Iranian general Soleimani. The Iranians has grudges with America since the 1953 coup which put the hateful Shah back to power. Their conflicts lasted for 45 years since the 1979 revolution.

Be honest, Obama's JCPOA deal was not a bad idea, that was face saving for the Iranian moderate faction and curbing their nuclear weapon program effectively.But everything became to be screw-up when things were in the hands of Donald Trump. He torn the JCPOA deal was nothing mature but a pure hatred at Iran and Obama. He just put die-hard Iranian faction in power with a very dangerous situation right now.

As a China supporter, I do applauding Trump's mistake over this matter. Because China can get more discount oil from Iran. China is the biggest importer of Iranian oil. Large amount of Iranian high quality crude oil can be bought in cheap price, we are building our stragetic energy reserves for future, a long term conflict. Thanks to the US- Iran tensions, China can get benefits from them!

I agree.

Iran killed 241 Americans through their proxy Hezbollah in 1983 

The USA killed 254 Iranians (out of a total of 290 deaths) when they shot down a passenger plane in 1988.

About even, so perhaps time to talk about peace, no?

And issued a regret and compensation for that. Can you imagine Iran having any kind of remorse for its actions? And that is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the damage that has been and is continuing to be wrought by Iran's proxies. Peace can be had by Iran just giving up its use of terrorism for geopolitical advantage.

Thank you for explaining the major f-up that was Trump so succinctly.
