I would have to say that this latest statement by Democrat (I won’t say thought as that gives way to much credit to Kaine) Sen. Tim Kaine takes the cake, but foolish and outright stupid statements are seemingly an everyday occurrence in the Party of Fools.
This is after all the Party that is headed (for all intents and purposes) by the now infamous – “The Squad,” of whom one member recently said that: America needs a revolution, but I digress.
“‘We are provoking Iran every day with the sanctions and with military action, and they’re responding,’ Kaine said, “We need to stop the provocation, and the United States needs to return to trying to be a diplomatic broker.” (Source)
Allow me to translate: The United States needs to back down, apologize, and then Trump needs to offer huge amounts of cash and a new deal to Iran. In other words, the U.S. needs to return to being a boot-licker like Obama was. This way, Iran can resume screwing us, the U.S. looks weak in the eyes of the international community (like we did under Obama), and the Democrats can throw a party celebrating their success.
Go Democrats, way to screw your own country and people over. All to support a world wide terrorist nation – who would not hesitate to kill you if you get in their way.
I have news for you Tim:
Not. Going. To. Happen.
This is the same operator who ran with Hillary in 2016, look how well that turned out (thankfully).
Obama and his Democrats may have (do) thought that a brown nose is the way to go, but President Trump knows better. All that happens when you bow down to a terrorist regime is that said regime knows you are weak, and they will push for more and more concessions. When you give in to the bully, they simply keep it up – and their actions will likely become worse over time.
I am in no way endorsing war with Iran, and hopefully cooler heads will prevail. A war with Iran is not a winning strategy. The entire Middle East is one huge ticking time bomb – one wrong move and Word War Three could be instantly upon us, and the majority of the people in the U.S. do not understand this or are simply ignoring reality.
The world cannot be allowed to dictate U.S. foreign policy, yet at the same time, if Russia and China are dead set against any attack on Iran, even a proportional response, then serious thought needs to be given on how to proceed. As Michael Snyder noted recently, Russia and China are already signaling that a U.S. attack on Iran is a bad idea.
Trump is proceeding cautiously and of course is taking a lot of flak for doing so, even from other Republicans such as Lindsey Graham. The problem here is that way to many people do not seem to realize how quickly the situation with Iran could blow up into a war that involves all the “powers that be.”
Trump stated that not attacking is a sign of strength and that we have the strongest military in the world, “it is very easy to attack,” President Trump said. Trump went on to say that if the U.S. needs to do something, there would be no hesitation.
President Trump is not like former presidents, he does not telegraph the actions of the U.S. beforehand. Trump is operating from a position of strength, and Iran knows full well that they would not stand a chance against the full military might of the U.S. On the other hand, Russia and or China may choose to back Iran – as well, Iran is fully capable of staging major terrorist attacks inside the United States. Trump would be blamed for that if it happened of course – despite the fact that it is Trump who wants the border secured and the Democrats who want open borders!
I hope the U.S. under Trump’s leadership proceeds very slowly on this, attack is easy, strategizing on what the proper moves are to achieve maximum results with minimal losses is not so easy. This was never something that Obama was capable of – appeasement must not happen either under any circumstances.
Tim Kaine is – to be blunt, an idiot. The U.S. cannot appease a terrorist regime and expect good things to happen, but the Democrats in general are not capable of understanding this concept. Iran needs to be closely monitored, and in this case, there needs to be some form of punishment. Sanctions are a good start. Iran’s actions are in no way the fault of the U.S. or by extension President Trump. The U.S. did not attack Iran, we merely defended our interests as any nation would do – for Kaine and others to suggest otherwise is disingenuous and a dangerous lie. The war hawks cannot be allowed to dictate U.S. foreign policy; hopefully the firing of Bolton will help in this regard. Trump needs to proceed cautiously on this; the world could literally be at stake here.
Update: According to Fox News, it has been determined that Iran attacked Saudi Arabia and not the Yemen Houthi rebels:
“‘This is the kind of weapon the Iranian regime and the Iranian IRGC are using against the civilian object and facilities infrastructure,’ Al-Malki said, referring to Iran’s Revolutionary Guards.
He added: ‘This attack did not originate from Yemen, despite Iran’s best effort to make it appear so.”
