I grew up with many people who traveled to Iran and lived and worked there in the 70’s. History is not what you proclaim it to be. I had an Iranian architect neighbor that I worked with often who liked to discuss politics and religion. He’s Muslim.

If you live your life with your head up your a$$, everything looks like $#|+.

"Let's make Iran great again"? Trump is now a peace-seeking diplomat on Iran? You could get dizzy trying to follow the constant turns in this story.

Pontiflex - are you celebrating the days of our imposed dictatorship of Iran? Do you know there was one.
As well, you can go to any country and find comforting photos....even in Hitler's Germany. And who are your photos of? Iranians? Tourists?
Have you never heard of the years of dictatorship? Have you never heard of the brutalities of the British?
No. I didn'think so.

“Permitting our country to continue down this road of genocide is completely unacceptable. So I have decide that instead of asking, ‘Why doesn’t somebody do something about it?’ I looked in the mirror and said, “You’re somebody, do something.”

“I hope this can start a movement to eliminate sanctions and siege."

“For the Children, End the Sanctions!!!”

The U.S. is the greatest military in the world? You didn''t notice it got the pants whipped off it in Vietnam? That it has been stuck in Afghanistan in the face of a military force that is very small, and badly equipped - and bogged down for twenty years. For all its efforts, it's pretty feeble in Syria. It seems to be lost in Venezuela.

Where did you study war? at Mickey Mouse U?

The US is the best-equipped military on paper but seems to have no idea how to use it effectively. Even their victories seem to end up turning into disasters these days. Look at the mess in Iraq. They arguably won, but handled things so badly, it just set the stage for their next engagement.

And, of course, a lot of that allegedly great equipment is the shoddy product of their insane defence contracting system.

Collision of great military thoughts are good for reduction of the we people ... those who raise questions from dark twilight zones unseen by powers as they burn! Populace reductionism!

It worked in the past better than birth control and other's crewing up ... mental twist or warpage of the myth of time?

US sanctions include: blocking Iran from using the US financial system, all countries are to halt all IMPORTS of Iranian oil, sanctions against eight senior commanders of Navy, Aerospace and ground forces of the IRGC...who are supposedly ordering provocative actions in international waters, restricting sales of uranium and airplane parts......

I am possibly naive in asking, but how does primarily military and large oil company sanctions cause the Iranian government to not feed it's own people? Could it also be part of their own policies that have invested heavily on relying mainly on oil exports rather than investing in diversity for their own economy? They import cheap products rather than invest in domestic business......when a country fails to encourage/support it's own people to invest in business, it is a sitting duck for sanctions because they rely heavily on one resource (oil) with nothing else to fall back on. All the education in the world won't help anyone if their left sitting on their hands. Countries and governments need to realize their number 1 resource are the people.

And did I not read that in Yemen, it is Yemen's rebels that are blocking world aid from getting through to feed the children not the sanctions? These children continue to be used as political pawns by placing blame wherever it creates disgust against nations that happen to be in disagreement with some of the world.

My first priority is in favour of every child being taken care of over stupid adults that are only concerned with profits through wars and indignities that harm human life....but it seems to me that placing sanctions as a sole cause of genocide is misplaced and everyone has to share the guilt in order to resolve it.

It has happened. Trump has made a very strong statement that listed additional conditions for iran, and has promised he will invade if Iran does not comply. That's a game over. I'm afraid the war is on.

The one hope now is that Trump has an election coming up. And Americans are hugely opposed to a war with Iran. So Trump would be destroying his one presidency.

And waterfall - where on earth did you read the story that it is the Yemeni who are blocking aid to save the children? And what does that have to do with Iran?

If Israel succeeds in having its 'Washington Puppet' attack Iran, Israel and its neoconservative agents will not welcome failure of their objective.

Imagine 'Washington Puppet' “saving face” by destroying the world and issuing some kind of ultimatums to Russia and China ...

or resorting to the use of nuclear weapons against Iran.

The insouciant American—indeed, Western—people are kept unaware by design.

It is the function of the presstitutes to control the explanations given to the people.

The US Congress is bought and paid for by the Israel Lobby, as are most important politicians in the UK and Europe.

What I am telling you is that it is very easy for fanatics to produce Armageddon.

The Russians no longer trust Washington, and neither do the Chinese.

Washington has lied to, and about, Russia so often in the 21st century that Russian trust of Washington is exhausted.

No matter how earnestly the Russian government wants to trust Washington, it dare not do so.

Therefore, it takes very little miscalculation for the morons in Washington to cause a threat-ending response from Russia.

Washington has convinced the Russian government that the US intends to destroy them.

The orchestration of Russiagate by the Democratic Party, military/security complex, and their media whores has ...

forced the current 'Washington Puppet' to adopt the neoconservative attitude toward Russia and other “non-compliant” governments.

This attitude is dangerous enough in the best of times.

It is extremely dangerous after trust has been destroyed by years of lies and false accusations.

We have to face the fact that as we face Armageddon the Western World is leaderless.

Paraphrasing from ...

In the 1990s, one focus of the antiwar movement was the impact of the genocidal sanctions against Iraq, which killed 500,000 children (a “price” that Madeleine Albright famously said was “worth it”). Antiwar activists feared that the sanctions were part of a military strategy that would end in even more devastating shooting war. Those fears proved true. Today’s sanctions seem to draw from the same playbook.

It has been shown time and again that torture “doesn’t work” for obtaining information. But torture is not a technique for obtaining information. It is a technique for breaking a person and, when practiced on a mass scale by an apartheid state or dictatorship, for breaking a society. Sanctions are similar: the point is to break the society, not “regime change.”

Sanctions are Trump’s favorite weapon, but good Democrats are no different. Obama oversaw the destruction of Syria, Clinton laughed about the murder of Gaddafi and the destruction of Libya, and Albright said that 500,000 Iraqi children’s deaths were “worth it.” For the empire, genocide, like aggression, is a normal part of politics. Nuclear planners plan how to commit it. Sanctions officials administer it. And for the most part, human rights organizations take no position on it.
