Tillerson: ‘Iran’s Provocative Actions Threaten the United States’

It’s all coming together now. All inside Trump’s 1st 100 days in office, we can clearly see where his administration is heading toward — all out war. It’s fun and games now, up until when the draft is reinstated and your ANTIFA fighting skills are put to the test inside of Tehran.

Incredulously, our Sec. of State, Rex Tillerson, just did a presser, announcing the Trump administration was doing a ‘comprehensive review’ on Iran, followed by a lot of saber rattling.

“The Trump administration is currently conducting across the entire government a review of our Iran policy … an unchecked Iran has the potential to follow the same path as North Korea and take the world along with it. The United States is keen to avoid a second piece of evidence that strategic patience is a failed approach.”

The entire speech was filled with ridiculous anecdotal evidence, ‘proving’ how evil Iran was — such as a photograph of a bomb scrawled with ‘Death to Israel’ on it. Clearly, that sort of graffiti and hate speech is unacceptable. We ought to go with war with them now.

Tillerson droned on, tediously reminding the world how fucked up Iran was and how it was the job of the United States to police it — instead of ‘passing the buck’ down to future administrations.

Nothing says ‘America first’ like policing the shittiest parts of the planet — all for the sake of proving American is tough again. Since we already destroyed most of the middle east, I suppose another war or two won’t kill too many. We might as well do it — providing it could stop the Iranians from saying ‘death to Israel’, menacing our boats in the Persian gulf, and annoying our good friends in Saudi Arabia by trying to sponsor more terrorists than them.

    Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Sad.

      We still do not have any data on nuking Israel from orbit to learn from it and repeat it.
      Death to that shitty little terrorist State Israel.

      Hey at least the portfolio is now positioned for war and the deaths of thousands of innocents.

      If you can’t hold your president accountable for his own campaign promises after shilling for him for a year, join their privatized death party!

    Wow, I’ll bet Putin has buyer’s remorse after buying Trump and Tillerson. Unless Tillerson is just bs’ing, which is entirely possible. After all, Trump’s conflict with Syria consisted of bombing an air base without even taking out the air strips, and Assad’s base was back up the next day, bombing the same city, but without using gas.

    So maybe this is just saber rattling leading to this “comprehensive review” and then leading to nothing whatsoever. We can only hope. Putin likes Iran, just like he likes Syria. But Iran is clearly a better place at the moment, as their leader is not killing thousands of his own people and destroying his own cites, resulting in millions of refugees fleeing to other parts of the world that are not prepared to deal with them.

    They’re following the neocon script from the 1990s with even more vigor than did BushBama. The Israeli right and the PNACers got themselves a chump and and we will all pay for it.

    So far, Trump has done quick isolated bombings. The one in Syria did no significant damage. I don’t know about the one in Afghanistan. For all we know, DT is just playing tough guy for a few hours and that will be the end of it. That is my hope, anyway. But he is unpredictable, so there is no telling what he’ll do next.

    Hillary Clinton most popular U.S. politician, poll shows

    http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-politics-clinton-idUSBRE9170NZ20130208

    Too bad we are so unlucky not to have her as our president. I know, you all feared the ridiculous cartoon caricature that DT created out of nothing and called Hillary. But more Americans love the real person Hillary than any other politician.

        She got 2.7 million more votes than Trump. So yes, many people love her. And many many more are going to be wishing they’d voted for her, as DT continues to eff things up.

            I preferred Bernie’s policies to hers. But many of hers were the same or similar. Bernie did push the Dem platform to the Left some. And in any case, I have always thought she is a zillion times more sane, qualified, competent, and responsive to the public than Trump.

            Trump cares about no one but himself. If that isn’t obvious to people yet, it will be soon.

    That was from 2013, but it’s probably true again now, since DT is effing up so badly in numerous ways and lying constantly.

    She did win the popular vote, so even on election day, she was still more popular than DT.

      Yeah sure seems like everyone who is freaking out over dealing with that cult is making a huge assumption. They know what the fuck is really going on in the world. Have no clue on this end but crusades tend to look like crusades. AKA Europe and parts of America.

      From what? Being alive? Or the treason investigation of Trump and his team? Or all the lies he tells? Or his general incompetence? Or his total lack of knowledge about how EOs and other aspects of government work? Or his apparent brain damage?

      You ask him about war and he tells you about his cake, and names the wrong country when talking about the bombing. Then he doesn’t know what direction his aircraft carrier is headed in. Maybe he doesn’t intentionally lie. Maybe his memory is just leaving him.

      I can think of tons of things he might like to distract the public and his voters from.

        STFU Frog. You are clueless about life. Islam must be destroyed before they destroy the rest of the world. They are retarded inbred imbeciles. Look around asshole, their bullshit way of life is staring you in the face and they’ll be knocking on your door soon, ready to throw you off a roof.

          I only know 2 people who are Muslim. One is a teller at my bank. She doesn’t wear anything on her head and is as modern as anyone else there and a nice person.

          The other is a Sufi, which is the most tolerant and open and free branch of the Muslim religion– sort of like Unitarians are to Christians. He teaches meditation classes, is a psychotherapist, and is one of the three ministers of different faiths who speak at an interfaith church in Seattle. One of the most peace loving people I have ever met.

          You can’t paint every single person in an entire religion with the same brush.

            Culturally, the Muslims in the Mideast, specifically the men, are arrogant and lazy with the emotional intelligence of an orangutan. They are simple minded and ignorant. They will as soon behead someone as look them over even the slightest offense.

        Frog, all of your one sided thoughts and ideas are cancelled out by Hillary. She would be doing the same exact things and probably worse since she was basically the Bernie character in Weekend at Bernie’s (the movie) during the campaign even.

        On another note. Why do you think everyone in the world should know our exact military plans? Please splain.

    What a shame. A lot of what I’ve seen on TV shows the people of Iran as polite and welcoming. the youth especially. Anthony Bourdain, Rick Steves are 2 example programs. We should separate the government from the people in this case… just we often wind up asking other nations to do with us.

      You got to see that documentary on what they do to gay dudes. The “people” being all kind and tender does not jive. Always the outside chance but when in a cult. You are in that cult.

    Fly posts about our elected government warmongering about Iran …yet most of the idiotic posts here are about how Muslims suck, not about how we suck. What a bunch of morons most of you are. Unhappily, you idiots have lots of company.

    I’m no fan of any organized religion. Religion is used by men to manipulate weak-minded fools to worship the agenda of other men. Clueless Americans play right into the hands of mullahs seeking to control their idiots …just as fear-mongering manipulators here control you fools.
