Threat of War on Iran

Unable to justify its actions to the U.N. Security Council, the U.S. has been for years illegally attacking Iran, another U.N. member country in violation of our constitution, the UN Charter and the Nuremberg Principles.

Trump has withdrawn from the Iran nuclear deal despite Iran’s full compliance and U.S. Allies objections. Trump has initiated severe economic sanctions hoping to create internal destabilizing unrest in Iran. Trump has been increasing U.S. troop levels in Iraq with Iran now surrounded by dozens of U.S. military bases in Iraq and Pakistan.

An attack on Iran could easily escalate into a large-scale war in the Middle East, further destabilizing the region. The government of Pakistan might fall to revolutionary forces who might enter the war on the side of Iran, thus introducing nuclear weapons into the conflict. Russia and China, firm allies of Iran, might also be drawn into a general war in the Middle East.

In a full-blown U.S. war with Iran, up to a million people could die initially. Hundreds of thousands more could die in the vacuum to follow. Millions would be made refugees. The likely closing of the Strait of Hormuz would cut off a major oil source for many large industrialize nations creating worldwide economic disruption.

Democratic Party wants a war?

Back in 2017, with the exception of Bernie Sanders, Democrats in Congress voted for sanctions on Iran that helped Trump kill the nuclear deal. And even recently, the Democrats overwhelmingly voted for a massive military budget and helped kill a proposal from Sanders and Ro Khanna that opposed unauthorized military action against Iran.

The past two decades has seen the U.S. commit numerous extreme war crimes and violations of International Law in the Middle East. Israel’s right-wing Zionist government of Benjamin Netanyahu and Saudi Arabia have been active cheerleaders while other western “allies” have also been collaborators, equally at fault, for decades tolerating in silence these heinous acts of mass murder and wars for power and resources and for world hegemony.

General Qassem Suleimani was influential and respected in Iran and throughout the Middle East for his help with Iraq and Syria armed forces in defeating ISIS. Iraqi PM reveals Soleimani was on peace mission when assassinated, exploding Trump’s lie of ‘imminent attacks’ The US act of impunity in killing General Suleimani was a clear declaration of war on Iran.

Iraqi Prime Minister Abdul-Mehdi speaking to Iraqi Parlament
Abdul-Mehdi spoke angrily about how the Americans had ruined the country and now refused to complete infrastructure and electricity grid projects unless they were promised 50% of oil revenues, which Abdul-Mehdi refused.
This is why I visited China and signed an important agreement with them to undertake the construction instead. Upon my return, Trump called me to ask me to reject this agreement. When I refused, he threatened to unleash huge demonstrations against me that would end my premiership.
Huge demonstrations against me duly materialized and Trump called again to threaten that if I did not comply with his demands, then he would have Marine snipers on tall buildings target protesters and security personnel alike in order to pressure me.
I refused again and handed in my resignation. To this day the Americans insist on us rescinding our deal with the Chinese. After this, when our Minister of Defense publicly stated that a third party was targeting both protestors and security personnel alike (just as Trump had threatened he would do), I received a new call from Trump threatening to kill both me and the Minister of Defense if we kept on talking about this “third party”.
Iran has long been a target of Israel and the military-Industrial complex (Deep State) to control the world’s supply of oil.
Three billionaires, Sheldon Adelson, Bernard Marcus and Paul Singer , among Trump’s biggest campaign donors have been major forces in pushing the U.S. into war with Iran.

Adelson, for his part, has advocated launching a nuclear weapon against Iran as a negotiating tactic and threatening to nuke Tehran, a city with a population of 8.8 million.
Marcus and Adelson, who are also board members of the Likudist Republican Jewish Coalition , have already received substantial returns on their investment: total alignment by the U.S. behind Israel, the move of the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, and the official dropping of “occupied territories” to describe the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Democratic Inaction
The Democrats could have prevented any Trump war with Iran, but in deference to their own military industrial complex (Deep State) funders, they have refused to end the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) while supporting the FY2020 NDAA military budget bill without restraints on Trump as to pursuing war with Iran.
