The beginning of the end
by Mike Meyer
Wow, what a mess. He just had to do it to prove that he could. There were people still trying hard to pretend that there was some plan but Trump just gobbled some gook, dropped his pants and took a shit. Then he wiped his ass on the JCPOA. He was proud of himself and spread some lies about France and Germany supporting his decision which they don’t.
There is very little left now as no one bothers to believe what Trump says. The play is up to Iran. Having accepted a very rigid limitation on their nuclear research and acted in good faith they now have no reason to do anything other than develop nuclear weapons. They are being punished anyway by an idiot and America is no longer reliable.
The really sad thing is that there was nothing to be gained and now the focus must be on trying to prevent disaster. Just so a three year old could have his revenge on the grown ups.
This could well be the turning point. So many things could blow up from this. It could well destroy the North Korean opening for peace that Moon has worked so hard to set up. Kim can now do what he wants and walk away when he wants because Trump is a liar and is completely unreliable. America has just completed its fall from power as it has allowed an irrational fool to destroy the credibility of the nation for his own ego.
Because Trump has no idea what he is doing we have a potentially explosive situation in the Middle East. Netanyahu is out of control and determined to start a war with Iran. How will he be controlled? Iran is threatened and has clearly been wronged. Not nice people as religious dictatorships are always ugly but the planet’s sympathy will be on their side. Why would we want that to happen?
My worry is that there are people involved in this that have plans and may take actions as soon as they can. We are now waiting and have no options.
