Post Date: 2019-07-27 03:22:50 by Tooconservative
On Friday, President Trump hit the French right in their national pride after the French government implemented a 3% tax on U.S. tech companies like Amazon, Facebook and Google he said he would tax French wine. Trump tweeted, France just put a digital tax on our great American technology companies. If anybody taxes them, it should be their home Country, the USA. We will announce a substantial reciprocal action on Macron's foolishness shortly. I've always said American wine is better than French wine! Later in the day, Trump told reporters he was considering putting a tariff on French wines, asserting, I might. France has put tariff on American companies. I ...

Iran tanker crisis: Impending Brexit leaves UK with no choice but to do US bidding – and suffer the consequences [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2019-07-24 13:55:40 by Tooconservative
What on Earth were the British politicians and officials thinking who gave the go-ahead for the seizure of the Iranian oil tanker Grace 1 off Gibraltar on 4 July? Did they truly believe that the Iranians would not retaliate for what they see as a serious escalation in Americas economic war against them? The British cover story that the sending of 30 Royal Marines by helicopter to take over the tanker was all to do with enforcing EU sanctions on Syria, and nothing to do with US sanctions on Iran, was always pretty thin. The Spanish foreign minister, Josep Borrell, has said categorically that Britain took over the tanker following a request from the United States to the United ...
Afghanistan Isn't Worth Dying For
Post Date: 2019-07-22 09:02:03 by Deckard
Rewarding broken promises, waste, and incompetence is offensive to the sacrifices of our troops. Army Sgt. Maj. James Sartor was killed in action in Afghanistans Faryab Province on Saturday. He was only the twelfth soldier to die there this year. That makes his death no less inexcusable, no less an unacceptable sacrifice for Washingtons failed foreign policy. What do we tell Sartors family? That he heroically gave the last full measure for the defense of our nation? In some conflicts in American history, that might have been true. But in Afghanistan, it is a trite and insulting bromide. This man, like the eleven that preceded him this year, ...

Post Date: 2019-07-20 18:22:00 by Tooconservative
Somali-Canadian journalist Hodan Nalayeh returned to Somalia in May to document what life is like in the African country. Her goal was simple: she wanted to show the world that Somalia wasn't as dangerous as everyone thought, despite the country's struggle with war and terrorist attacks. Nalayeh took to Instagram to share her excitement, saying for the first time in 30 years she was living in Somalia. She frequently posted pictures that showed how beautiful Somalia is. But fast forward eight weeks later and Nalayeh is dead.According to CNN, Nalayeh died when a terrorist attack took place in Kismayo, about 300 miles south of Mogadish, the capital.

Rand Paul Wants To Be Trump's Man in Iran. That Would Be Good News for Peace.
Post Date: 2019-07-17 21:19:17 by Tooconservative
On Monday, Sen. Rand Paul (RKy.) tweeted about playing golf with President Donald Trump and Sen. Lindsey Graham (RS.C.) over the weekend. Graham and Paul don't see eye-to-eye on military intervention in the Middle East, and they've essentially been the angel and devil on Trump's shoulder when it comes to foreign policy. Paul's tweets made it clear that he's still encouraging the president to pull American troops out of war zones and bring them home: Proud that @realDonaldTrump and I argued with you against endless wars! @POTUS made it clear to all of us at the table, we are getting out of the Middle East quagmire. We've been there too long. Time to bring ...
WAS BITCOIN CREATED BY THIS INTERNATIONAL DRUG DEALER? [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2019-07-16 08:06:04 by A K A Stone
THE MESSAGES STARTED arriving on a Sunday afternoon in mid-May. “Just wanted to draw your attention to this,” one began. “Rumors are starting to surface,” another informed me. “I’d be very interested in getting your thoughts,” a third suggested. My correspondents, mostly strangers, were polite but insistent. They wanted my take on a theory, newly circulating online, that offered a resolution to one of the most alluring digital mysteries of the past decade, the real identity (or identities) behind the persona of Satoshi Nakamoto.
The question, as someone in my Twitter DM’s articulated it, was this: “Do you think that Paul Le Roux is bitcoin creator Satoshi?”
In one sense, they’d all ...
In Iran, some take off their hijabs as hard-liners push back
Post Date: 2019-07-15 07:48:24 by A K A Stone
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) The simple act of walking has become a display of defiance for a young Iranian woman who often moves in Tehran's streets without a compulsory headscarf, or hijab. With every step, she risks harassment or even arrest by Iran's morality police whose job is to enforce the strict dress code imposed after the 1979 Islamic Revolution. "I have to confess it is really, really scary," the 30-year-old fire-safety consultant said in a WhatsApp audio message, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of repercussions. But she is also hopeful, saying she believes the authorities find it increasingly difficult to suppress protests as more women join in. ...

Trumps attorney, Rudy Giuliani, his pockets stuffed with terrorist cash, tweeted on Saturday that MEK is a viable alternative to the rule of the mullahs in Iran.

British navy to Iran: Back the hell off [Full Thread]

Do the Iranians want a war? They nearly got one overnight, not with the US but with the United Kingdom. The British navy aimed its guns on several Iranian ships attempting to block passage through the Strait of Hormuz of a British oil tanker, which caused the smaller ships to retreat: Three Iranian vessels attempted to stop a British tanker traveling through the Strait of Hormuz, Britain said Thursday, in the latest escalation between Iran and Western powers in recent weeks.

Frog-Marching Trump Toward War on Iran
Post Date: 2019-07-09 09:23:53 by Deckard
Hypocrisy seems to have become a defining characteristic of US foreign policy, especially when it comes to Iran. After breaking the Iran deal last year and, de facto, forcing the Europeans to violate the deal in May, the US Administration is now complaining that Iran is no longer abiding by its obligations under the deal!Its remarkable to see Secretary of State Mike Pompeo take to Twitter to complain of Iran enriching uranium to pre-deal levels, as if somehow the US believes it can still dictate the terms of a deal to which it is no longer a party.This latest neocon push for US war on Iran started last week when Iran exceeded the limit of a 300 kilogram stockpile of low-enriched ...

Post Date: 2019-07-02 08:04:13 by A K A Stone
The doctor treating quadriplegic patient Vincent Lambert, 42, at the University Hospital in Reims, France is taking food and water away from him today, beginning the process of Lambert's death. The parents of mentally disabled patient Vincent Lambert, injured in a motorcycle accident in 2008, won a reprieve on May 20th hours after food and water was withdrawn. That's when the Court of Appeals of Paris ruled to stop the killing until a UN panel could review Lambert's case. But late last Friday (at 5pm) France's highest court, the Court of Cassation, overturned the lower court ruling. On Monday, his mother, Viviane Lambert spoke before a UN human rights panel in Geneva, ...

Post Date: 2019-07-01 17:12:52 by Willie Green
Russian President Vladimir Putin struck a deal with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman to extend the OPEC+ agreement at current production levels for the rest of this year and potentially into early 2020. Speaking at the Group of 20 summit in Japan, the Russian president said the extension of output cuts -- which expire at the end of June -- could be for six or nine months. His comments make the outcome of next weeks OPEC+ gathering in Vienna all but a foregone conclusion, and further reinforce Putins role as the ultimate policy maker within the group. Saudi Arabia and Russia ended years of animosity in 2016, joining forces to manage the global oil market in an effort ...

A reporter asked the president if he brought up the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, which occurred inside the Saudi consulate in Turkey, Trump said, nobody so far has directly pointed a finger at the future king of Saudi Arabia.

Writing for TheAmericanConservative.com, Daniel Larison penned an excellent article entitled The Iranian People Are Not Our Enemy. Yes, I liked the title so much, I borrowed it for this column. Larison quotes Ardeshir Zahedi and Ali Vaez in an op-ed piece for the Washington Post. Zahedi is Irans former foreign minister (1966-1971) and ambassador to England (1962-1966) and the United States (1960-1962 and 1973-1979). Vaez is the International Crisis Groups Iran project director, based in Washington.

Boxed in by Neocons and the Media, Will Trump Launch Iran War?
Post Date: 2019-06-25 07:13:13 by Deckard
President Trump did the smart thing last week by calling off a US airstrike on Iran over the downing of an American spy drone near or within Iranian territorial waters. According to press reports, the president over-ruled virtually all his top advisors Bolton, Pompeo, and Haspel who all wanted another undeclared and unauthorized US war in the Middle East.Is Iran really the aggressive one? When you unilaterally pull out of an agreement that was reducing tensions and boosting trade; when you begin applying sanctions designed to completely destroy another countrys economy; when you position military assets right offshore of that country; when you threaten to destroy that ...
John Bolton Flies to Israel to Apologize for Not Bombing Iran, Says He Will Do It Soon

You thought that headline was an exaggeration, didnt you? Its not. NPR: Neither Iran nor any other hostile actor should mistake U.S. prudence and discretion for weakness, Bolton said. No one has granted them a hunting license in the Middle East. He spoke in Jerusalem alongside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Bolton said he is in the Middle East for previously scheduled meetings with Israeli and Russian security advisors. And he warned Iran that the U.S. remains a formidable adversary. Our military is rebuilt, new and ready to go, Bolton said. This is utterly insane. Try to imagine a situation where an advisor to the president of ...
