The Trump administration is trying to make war with Iran inevitable - Ben Armbruster

Last night, in response to Iran shooting down an American drone earlier this week, the United States came within one whim of an erratic and unstable president from launching a military strike on Iran.

Like the recent oil tanker attacks in the Gulf of Oman, the Trump administration has framed the drone incident as if it occurred in a vacuum – implying that the Iranians are launching these (alleged) attacks without provocation, and providing an aura of legitimacy to a possible American military response.

And that’s exactly what the Trump administration’s Iran hawks – led by the national security adviser, John Bolton, and the secretary of state, Mike Pompeo — have seemingly planned all along: to cultivate conditions that make military conflict with Iran the only option.

The current Iran predicament is the result of a years-long campaign by the same people who pushed for invasion of Iraq. Instead of learning from the Iraq debacle, they’ve decided that any means, including a potentially catastrophic war with Iran, are justified in order to achieve regime change in Tehran. Their public arguments for escalation with Iran have generally been cloaked as criticism of Barack Obama’s Iran nuclear agreement, by disingenuously calling for what they know is an unachievable “better deal”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Again, should such a war happen, it will absolutely NOT be for the benefit of We the People, but only for the benefit of our corporate oligarchs, who will profit from such a war immeasurably.

When Karl Marx made the observation that "All Wars are Economic in Origin, the guy wasn't mistaken at all; it takes large governments borrowing money from the banks, at insanely high interest rates, to keep these wars going.

Mr. President, I am sure that you are getting daily, if not hourly, calls from the politically wounded Israeli Prime Minister, Benyamin Netanyahu, urging you, explicitly, to "get the party started" by issuing an "Executive Order" for a"kinetic Motion" attack against Iran, bypassing Congress completely.

But the major bone of contention, and your cabinet understands this, is that you will not have the support of ordinary US citizens, should you order a strike before the 2020 elections.

And Mr. President, considering what a mess into which the US government and military were led, by both American and foreign oligarchs the last several times the US government invaded and occupied a number of countries, including Iraq; Afghanistan; Libya; and DRC, you need to look at a couple potential aspects of changing the way the US does business with the Middle East.

What China does, to get what it wants, is its own version of "Let's make a deal"; certain things are promised and delivered; certain things come from the other side, which creates a "win-win" progression of that project, so all people involved, feel lifted up, and that cooperation moves to even greater depths with future projects.

I think you have to call China's "Silk and Belt Road" a major expression of this philosophy, which is going to propel China to absolute leadership and respect, if handled carefully.

Unfortunately, the US government's approach to creating "win/win" since the end of World War II, has generally been "My Way...or the Highway"

And that surprised, collective gasp in Foggy Bottom you hear, when people don't want to be killed or maimed for life by US bullets, to "neutralize" the native population; when the US installs a western-centric puppet government, to insure that their resources are only sold in US dollars, is "Why don't they love our invading their countries; murdering their kids and families, and expropriating their resources"?!?

Mr. President, I am politely requesting that you rethink your Iran strategy; I understand that you are getting what I would call "the ultimate pressure" from Netanyahu, to get this war started, but in light of the fact that the US, economically, isn't doing so well, except for the 1%, I would strongly caution you against it. I frankly think, that the situation needs more time to be resolved, and that starting to "do something" as of the end of today against Iran, could lead to unmitigated disaster for this country.

Patience, honorably conceived notions of win/win in setting up any deal, are desperately needed here; the yelling, foot-stomping, and foul-mouthed insults from both you, and the Iranian leadership, need to stop immediately.

I would also remind you that Russia has been a great partner for Syria, in terms of getting rid of US-backed, trained, and funded jihadi fighters; they are light years ahead in their weapons development.

There is no evidence to suggest any involvement from Mr Trump, but the records claim that “message pads confiscated from Epstein’s home indicated that Trump called Epstein’s West Palm Beach mansion on several occasions”.

It also quotes an interview with Mr Trump, featured in New York Magazine, in which he said: “I’ve known Jeff for 15 years. Terrific guy. He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it, Jeffrey enjoys his social life.”

In 2007, Epstein was given what critics branded a “sweetheart” deal by federal prosecutors over allegations he sexually assaulted young girls.

Jeffrey Epstein had a little black book filled with the names and personal phone numbers of some of the world’s wealthiest and most influential people, from Bill Clinton and Donald Trump to actors, actresses, scientists and business tycoons.
A money manager for the super-rich, Epstein had two private jets, the largest single residence in Manhattan, an island in the Caribbean, a ranch in New Mexico and a waterfront estate in Florida.

But Epstein also had an obsession.
