Don’t fall for pimping Pompeo’s promises

For centuries now the Iranians have been great chess players!!! More on that later.

The extra-judicial assassination of Dr. Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, Iran’s top nuclear scientist, is but another act of terror in an uptick in U.S. and Israeli military operations against the Iranian regime and its citizens. As the countdown to the January 20, 2021 deadline draws near, Israel, Saudi Arabia, and UAE’s window of opportunity to draw the U.S. into a war with Iran narrows.  For the above-mentioned, there will never be another fifty-day opportunity to have a xenophobic megalomaniac unleash a “war like you’ve never seen before” on Iran. The sole purpose of this murderous assassination is to draw Iran into a military conflict with the U.S.

Donald Trump’s four-year attempts to break Iran’s will have failed miserably; his vengefully maniacal regime of sanctions and verbal threats to impose a new, renegotiated nuclear deal (orchestrated by Netanyahu and the Foolish Gulf Arabs) is as dead as a nail. Having lost his second bid for the presidency, Trump has consigned himself to the sphere of denial, anger, and bitter rancor.

To the ancient Athenians Lytta was the spirit that personified mad rage and frenzy.  She was closely related to Maniae, the spirit of madness and insanity. The Roman equivalent was Ira, better known as Furor or the Rabies.

Having been soundly beaten by Sleepy Joe, the great deal maker is desperately looking for an outlet to vent his rage and fury. This is perhaps the very first rejection Trump’s experienced in his adult life. Pining to drop “the mother of all Bombs,” including all her children and assorted lethal kindred on Iran’s nuclear facilities, has been on Trump’s mind since 2015. Gambler Sheldon Adelson will quadruple the money.

Some two weeks ago the Donald consulted with a cadre of his subservient walking-on-egg-shells White House advisors on whether and how to bomb Iran’s nuclear facilities. Fortunately sane minds discouraged the short-tempered, belligerent, and mercurial pugilist/boss from doing so.

The extra-judicial U.S. assassination (very likely at Israeli, UAE, and Saudi bidding and complicity) of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad on January 3, 2020 was but a prelude to the following 2020 acts of U.S./Israeli sabotage, violence, disruption, mayhem – all in an attempt to bring down the Iranian regime: an explosion at Iran’s Natanz nuclear facility, a fire and sabotage of an aluminum processing plant, explosions that damaged and crippled seven commercial ships, and punishing electronic sabotage of Iranian electric grids and digital platforms.

The above-mentioned does not include the almost weekly Israeli attacks on Iranian interests in Syria and Iraq in which scores of Iranian citizens have been killed.

Neither do the afore cited include the crippling U.S. economic sanctions on Iran, especially, and including vengeful, crippling sanctions on much needed medicine and medical equipment. This abhorrent policy, at a time when Covid-19 is exploding exponentially in Iran, has been in Donald Trump’s xenophobic crosshairs as far back as 2015. In his scorch earth policies of  nullifying myriad Obama policies, including the Iran nuclear deal (painstakingly hammered out by Obama, China, Russia, and a handful of EU countries), Iran was at the top of  Donald Trump’s  sniff, search and destroy list.

Besides, What Bibi wants, Bibi gets. Invited by pandering Republications to debase the hallowed Congressional House, Netanyahu’s 2015 speech against the Iran nuclear deal was a full-fledged hectoring and lecturing of Obama;   pandering Republican (and a handful of Democrat) legislators gave impresario Bibi over 60 standing ovations. Adding insult to injury, During Obama’s 8 years in office,  Netanyahu rubbed Obama, Biden, Hillary, and John Kerry’s noses in Zionist dog dodoo. And like the abused spouse, Obama tucked his tail, served as Netanyahu’s water boy, and ended up pledging a guaranteed no strings attached annual $3.8  billion gift to Bibi, a pledge that has only recently been codified into U.S. law by  an overwhelming number of pandering Democrat and Republican legislators.

Any wonder, then, about Bibi’s ambitions to rule the Near East?
