I see you have your wits about you.


What bothers me of course is so many perhaps even myself if I stare at the news long enough will be persuaded.

oh and the troops!

all else fails they'll bring on the tears and if you still dont believe in a war
the remarks that you dont care about our soldiers etc...

Thing is Iran has asked Russia to stop trading in Dollars as well, Since they are also the victims of U.S. Sanctions.

Chinas been going around the world to various trading partners asking them to Trade in the Chinese Currency. Some have gone over already.

All this Straddling the World and "our way or the highway" trash talking and strong arming we've been doing is starting to bite us in the arse. These nations could destroy us economically if they all drop the dollar. And they won't have to fire a shot to do it.

And the only thing we'd have left is the all purpose "hammer" of our military.
But without cash to PAY the TROOPS and REFUEL the engines of war how long could we last? Even with a populace whipped into a war fever over a looming or real economic depression.

People would go war crazy especially if can be blamed on the wicked RUSSIAN PUTIN and IRAN and CHINA Ahhhhh! left and right media would beat the war drums like manics.
And the Left's new hard core McCarthyist and the rights "i'd torture my own mother" patriots would not hesitate to support nuking them all. by a strong manly man leader... to save AMERICA!

Iran didn't seem to have a problem unloading pallets filled with dollars provided by the previous president just because. Maybe they'll send them back now that they don't like dollars or the US anymore.

It's going to take decades to straighten out the foreign policy mess Iran has become.

Now here's what actually happened...The Euro has nothing to do with it...

Trump administration hits Iran's central bank with terror sanctions

Quote:
The Trump administration designated the head of Iran’s central bank a terrorist Tuesday, slapping on sanctions intended to further isolate Iran from the global financial system.

The Treasury Department named Valiollah Seif a “specially designated global terrorist” who is being accused of helping transfer millions of dollars to Hezbollah, the Iran-backed militant group. Seif is the governor of the Iranian central bank.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Seif “covertly funneled” money from Iran’s Revolutionary Guards through al-Bliad Islamic Bank in Iraq to help Hezbollah. The Iraqi bank and its chairman also are being punished with sanctions.

"It is appalling, but not surprising, that Iran’s senior-most banking official would conspire with the IRGC-QF to facilitate funding of terror groups like Hezbollah, and it undermines any credibility he could claim in protecting the integrity of the institution as a central bank governor,” Mnuchin said in a statement Tuesday. “The United States will not permit Iran’s increasingly brazen abuse of the international financial system. The global community must remain vigilant against Iran’s deceptive efforts to provide financial support to its terrorist proxies.”

The U.S. also said it is imposing so-called secondary sanctions on Seif, meaning anyone who does business with him could be cut off from the U.S. financial system.

Oh come on W, do you really think the left wing media would side with Trump in a war against Russia or anyone else? They didn't with the Iraq war, and almost all the democrats voted in favor of that war.

So should we avert all that is happening by lifting sanctions, and allowing them to develop nukes?

Obama thought they would be nice to us and become peaceful. I don't think that happened, do you?

Here's my Guess on how it might play out.
the political class on the left would stand with Trump, no doubt. Only a few sincerely ideologically progressive and anti-war officials would protest. Pelosi , Shumer and there ilk will stand by "America" and the military industrial complex, they always have.
Some left pundits would simply begin to complain that ...he should have started the WAR long ago... and that he's not doing ENOUGH to destroy the evil Putin that "rigged our elections!".

And the MSM in general LOVES, war great ratings. most will get in line.

But There would be some that would flip-flop like a fish on steroids from 'Trump is in bed with Putin' to 'Trump should make peace with Putin becasue see we told you Trump =WW3!' and not loose any sleep even though one of their faces is smashed into pillow every night and can't breath.

And plenty of rank and file would fall mostly into 1 of 2 of the above camps, Hate Trump he didn't war enough or the right way or Hate trump he's brought WW3.

Exactly most of the politicians were on board. that's all trump needs.
But heres the thing about the MSM and the people at that time. most of the them were against the idea of war with Iraq BEFORE the war. many were MARCHING against it even. But at this point the left MSM and left base have gone nearly full JOE MCCARTHY mode. "MORE INVESTIGATIONS IN TO RUSSIA!!!!"
A war at this point to many would be justified in their minds. heck, Hillary suggested striking Russian targets during her campaign becasue of Syria, the Ukraine etc. and few on the left even BLINKED. And that was BEFORE the socalled "rigging" and the "HACKS" and "election interference".
If the MSM could add to that the idea that Russia is trying to Crash our economy. pheewww. They'd PUSH Trump into war.

there's no new evidence that Iran is developing Nukes. Everything Bibi presented is OLD news.
And IMO Some people have been suggesting wisely, since Clinton's era that Iran would be BETTER contained if we treated them more inline with the way Nixon treated China.

And It's my understanding that the Iran deal has the BEST Nuke inspection program going against any country. The most High tech the most wide spread. But If it doesn't cover certain areas folks are extremely concerned about then why not just make an ADDITIONAL DEAL? Why scrape the progress made so far? It makes no sense to me.

Plus with our covert work in Iran made easier by the ability to have people OPENLY on the ground in IRAN (plus Israels, the U.Ks and germany's covert work) it seems to me that the deal is workable.

I don't think ANYONE thought Iran was going to LOVE US becasue of this deal, or become peaceful ... I mean that's why you have an inspection deal becasue we DON"T trust them.

Having ZERO deal and no access to check Iran is worse.
Pushing Iran into an economic corner where they can't do anything but fight is worse seems to me.
