ABC News: Trump suggests other countries pay US for protecting tankers

Filed under: News — Scottie @ 09:54

The other countries did not ask us to protect anything there. The us is trying to create the idea that it is in charge over there and we have the right to use force. There will be more trouble if the war hawks get their way. Hugs

  1. Trump was quite entitled to withdraw from the 2015 Nuclear Agreement if he wished but the other signatories to that accord were confident enough to carry on and Trump presented no case against Iran.He is wrong to try and use this kind of tactic to try and tear up the old agreement that Tehran was honouring and expect the other Countries to follow his lead which had nothing at all to do with the agreement but is more to do with the wishes of the UAE and Saudi Arabia who see Iran as a threat. I personally believe that one of these two countries was responsible for the explosions aboard the ships in the Hormuz Straits.and that the US itself was playing fast and loose with where it’s drone was in order to force a confrontation. The conversation with Russia may have been the only thing to make Trump back off, but his former allies in Europe won’t take kindly to his threats to ensure we play ball with him or we won’t be able to trade with the US or US companies Worldwide.That could hurt America as well.

    • Hello David. Well said, I agree. Brexit makes trade with the US more important for the UK, but I really hope the world tells tRump a resounding no. There is a weird perception among some people in the US that the US is in charge of the world and other countries / people have to do as we tell them. Like the rest of the world are kids and we are the only adults. I think the only way to save the world is to show the US the rest of the world can get along without the US quite well. I hate that the oversized military is the only thing keeping my country relevant right now. That my country is being the bully on the world stage is something that bothers me greatly. Hugs

  2. To sum up: “Nice tankers you got there. Shame if something happened to them.”
    Feels like we are living in the ST episode “Charlie X” – only Charlie doesn’t really have any powers except what his sycophants give him.
