When Netenyahu met Trump in Trump Tower in September 2016 (just before the election), Netenyahu cut him a deal.

I'll give you AIPAC (thereby assuring you victory), if you give me Iran after we make you president.

It's coming to pass.

This is unprecedented in all known history. The blatant use of sanctions to further the whims of israel is the catalyst for the inevitable demise of merica which is going to happen the moment the saudis kick the dollar which they're planning on doing. Enough is truly enough.

I'm confused - maybe the Trumpers here can help me understand - during the campaign Trump said this;

President Donald Trump took a dig at George W. Bush during a speech to Republican donors on Saturday, calling the former president’s decision to invade Iraq in 2003 “the single worst decision ever made.”

Trump, whose shifting position on the Iraq War is well-documented, said the decision was akin to “throwing a big fat brick into a hornet’s nest.” CNN first reported Trump’s remarks, delivered at a fundraiser at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. 

“Here we are, like the dummies of the world, because we had bad politicians running our country for a long time,” Trump said. He went on to mock fellow Republican Bush, sarcastically calling him a “real genius” over his decision to invade Iraq.

One of the main organizers amd supporter of the Iraq war was John Bolton, Trump's National Security Adviser - who is now pushing Trump to do to Iran what Bush did to Iraq...

So why is Trump repeating that he called "the single worst decision ever made"?

So why is Trump repeating that he called "the single worst decision ever made"?

Good question. Maybe Trump's making an opening bargain position ala 'Mexico's going to pay for my wall? Maybe he's waiting for someone to 'contribute' more to his legal defense funds? Maybe he's waiting to see who's going to offer Jared more for the rights to the Trump brand name? Maybe he's waiting for Hannity etal to tell him what to do? Maybe he's too busy playing golf? Maybe he's waiting for a report - less than 140 characters - he can understand?

Trump moves in mysterious ways, but usually if the money is followed, that will tell what he's going to do.

No one said we are going to go to war with Iran now, but given the horrendous Iranian deal that Obama created, it brought more uncertainty to the region, gave great concern to Israel and SA and it emboldened the Iranians and the mullahs and just because Trump got rid of that disastrous deal, the Iranians feel they are in the position to threaten us? So yes, Bolton is now watching and planning in the event Iran gets an embarrassing thought in their heads and decide to take on the US.

So why is Trump repeating that he called "the single worst decision ever made"?

He’s not, but he and Bolton, Pompeo should take preliminary precautions.

What? Were you hiding under the lampshade when they made this deal? Silly conspiracy stuff.

The truth is that the US loves war, hates regional powers that aren't 100% subservient to the US, and needs a constant stream of enemies. The Iranian govt are thugs and criminals, like many govts around the world. The people are good, though, and potential allies. Unfortunately, the US has a habit of going to war with potential allies if they don't come to heel quickly enough.

Eisenhower was right about the war machine. Too bad nobody listened.

Oh, you mean the Iran deal that kept the Iranians in check and under a microscope so they wouldn't pursue a nucelar weapon - the one Trump unilaterally pulled out of so he could follow Neocon Bolton's advice and start a war with Iran?

Them if the Iranians don’t want the Great Satan to breath fire and fury on them the mullahs need to think very rationally about their future moves if they want their country to live and prosper or not.

No, not the liberal excuse, but the real reason

https://www.nationalreview.com/2018/06/iran-nuclear-deal-disaster-from-the-start/

To swing the deal, the Obama administration sent advisers around the banking world to facilitate Iranian efforts to convert their released embargoed funds into Great Satan currency — a warping of the American financial system that was ostensibly illegal at the time. In other words, the Obama administration for some strange reason more or less went beyond the requirements of the Iran deal and used the U.S. government to help undermine its own restrictions on facilitating Iranian commerce and banking — while keeping the entire sordid mess quiet as they hectored skeptics of the deal as naïve or conspiratorial. Such habitual Obama-administration deception and conniving may explain why former secretary of state John Kerry this May so publicly and nonchalantly met Iranian representatives overseas, apparently seeing nothing wrong in the attempt to undermine the very policies of his own president. Old habits die hard.

So yes, Bolton should put them on notice, we don’t want a war, but we will go to war if you go down that road.

Obviously, Trump has absolutely no regard for the American people. If war with Iran happens, how many Americans will die so Trump can be elected again with the help of AIPAC? Trump works more for Israel on a daily basis than he does America.

You really have to feel sorry for the US administration. They backed the wrong horse way back when they decided the Saudis would be regional leaders....

They then have two wars in Iraq and eventually overthrow Saddam, only to have him replaced by.... a political group started by Ayatollah Khomeini while under exile in Iraq.

Obama and Clinton instigated the Syrian “war” to weaken Iran and her Hezbollah allies in Lebanon... This backfired miserably. The US and Saudi funded jihadists were defeated with support from Russia.

so we are now where we are.... the US has funded the same groups responsible for 9/11, lost thousands of troops, killed hundreds of thousands of innocents, wasted billions of dollars all to give Iran more control in Syria, Lebanon and especially Iraq.

This is why Trump pulled out of the nuclear agreement (that the Iranians were sticking to) even the CIA said so! This is why more and more ridiculous sanctions are being place on Iran.

The US needs to look a little closer in the region to find the real problem nations... and end their blanket support for Israel and the Saudis.

As he should, as every President followed their NSA and the fact that liberals hate this man with a passion makes me love him more. So I trust Bolton and I do hope that Iran does the right thing and if they don’t, he should follow what Bolton says, but we don’t have to go to war right away, as with most predictions you were off, but I will say this, Israel can take care of Iran for the most part, so if Iran wants to pick a fight with them, then we know the mullahs are suicidal.

You have savaged the Neocons in the past - why the change in tune, or should I say flip-flop?

I have savaged Neocons in the past, but I’m not dumb and I see exactly where the Iranians want to go with this, so if they make a move towards posturing for a war, the US, Israel and the Saudis will do whatever it takes to neutralize that threat.

Bit of a change from your earlier stance.

Meaning, Israel if their country is threatened and faced with the decision that there is no other choice, they’ll use their nukes with the added bonus of the Saudis.

Thank you - Trumper hypocrisy on full display - when Trump was criticizing "real genius" Bush II for starting the Iraq War, and saying the Neocon's made the "single worst decision ever made", Trumpers were ranting that the Neocons were a danger to our country. Then the flip-flop - Trump hires Neocon #1 Bolton, starts down the same path Bush did, and all's just fine.

You have savaged the Neocons in the past - why the change in tune, or should I say flip-flop?

I have savaged Neocons in the past, but I’m not dumb and I see exactly where the Iranians want to go with this, so if they make a move towards posturing for a war, the US, Israel and the Saudis will do whatever it takes to neutralize that threat.

And millions of people will die, just like in Iraq, that Trump said was the "single worst decision ever".

But I have to disagree with the latter - the single worst decision ever was Repubs allowing a serial liar, pervert, and con-man to get elected President.
