Other than targeting Putin for assassination, we need to focus on trying and convicting all the current domestic terrorists instead.

..unless Iran decides to hold off for another few months to back out.

The Iranians aren't stupid.  They'll play realpolitik if the situation warrants.

It's true, they're not stupid, which is why there will never be another agreement. Why should they agree to anything when everything gets blown up every time a Republican is elected?
 
2020-08-19 1:55:10 PM  
Iran may or may not have nukes, may or may not be sponsoring terrorism, and Trump is focused on annoying Joe Biden.

AND I want the US to stop being Israel's puppet / bouncer (shouldn't that have been Germany instead?). As evidenced by Netanyahu, they're not really a democracy either so eff em.

The only decent people in that entire swath of the world are the Kurds and the Yazidis and we have done NOTHING but fark them over.

Iran won't be dealing with a US administration any time soon. Like in the next millennium.

Trying to invoke part of an agreement you pulled out of. They're just farking clowns.

Why not? It worked for Reagan against Carter when they did pretty much the same thing with the Iran Hostages.

The reasons for pulling out of the deal are the same ones for this move, to spite the Democrats and nothing else.

I don't think North Korea belongs in that list.

Yeah, they're despotic.  So are a lot of countries that we do business with.  Nowadays they just stick to themselves and just want to be left alone.  I can respect that.

The rest of those countries do everything they can to just fark with other countries.

You don't get to enforce sanctions on a deal you pulled out of because another deal with another nation works that way, dipshiats.

/apparently they feel the need to be laughed at by international courts now, not just domestic...

Putting Russia and China in the same group as Iran and North Korea is farkin stupid. They are, have been, and will continue to be super powers. Iran and North Korea want nukes for the same reasons as everybody else - self defense. That's the world order, has been for 70 years. You can't blame them for that.

Nuclear weapons are inevitable, and if we're going to get along with this big diverse world, we need to stop acting like we're the end all be all of the human species. Counter-proliferation is incredibly noble and a great goal to strive for. Right now WE are the ones that broke the treaty with Russia, and with Iran. WE are the ones accelerating our nuke programs. Chew on that for a bit.

Iran is a super power in the middle east.  They run the palestinian, iraqi, lebanese, yemen, and a bunch of other governments.

Summary executions for the current crop of Republicans.

Give the public some show trials and firing squads, then a quick turnaround to an international scandal.

It's been definitively proven that a shiny new outrage makes the old outrage fade from the public consciousness remarkably quickly. In 2 years nobody will care about Trump taking a bullet to the eye. Everyone will be talking about Matt Gaetz getting a handjob from Angela Merkel.

Do whatever you want. America is f*cked.

Because of what I've seen in the "conservative" movement and GOP over the last decade or so, I quit being a Republican - after 20 years of being a card carrying one.
Because of what I've seen over the last 4 years or so, I have sworn that I will go to my grave having never cast another vote for a Republican ever again.

I'm now a Democrat, and happy to be one. But if Biden wins, and the Biden administration pulls an Obama administration and just chooses to look the other way at all the crimes committed by the previous POTUS and administration, I will be making a similar non-voting vow against the Democrats. That's how strongly I feel that the lawless, corrupt scumbags who have infested our country's leadership need to be held accountable.

Anything less means the rule of law is officially a complete and utter punchline to the joke that is our nation, and will mean that whoever Trump 2.0 is in a few years down the road will go in knowing that as long as they win the election they can get away with anything they want to. That administration will make the already horrific, mass-murdering Trump administration look like a farking dream in comparison. That's what happened with Nixon to Trump, and a lot of those motherfarkers worked in the Bush admin too. It's entirely predictable what the fallout from failing to pursue corrupt officials will be if we do it again.

Because they have lots of money.

Things that are crimes when you are poor are "good business" when you're rich.

Applies to nations just as much as people.

I'm dead serious about this. The incoming Biden admin should have a few URGENT immediate priorities:
1. Getting COVID under control nationally
2. Getting the relief to the regular folks being absolutely crushed economically by the economic turmoil
3. Pursuing criminal charges against Trump admin including the Trump crime family itself
4. Repairing our international relations
5. Working with the hopefully new Democratically controlled House and Senate to secure our future elections better, and close any legal ambiguities about foreign influence that might have helped Trump and "conservatives" betray our nation to Russia

I feel so strongly about #3 that if it is not done I will not vote for Democrats again, and I'll vociferously encourage everyone else not to as well. I don't want to put the cart before the horse, I don't assume that the incoming Biden admin won't prosecute Trump admin crimes and I do suspect they will, but they goddamned well better.

They're also not stupid.

Why would Iran (or for that matter, anyone else) commit to a deal with the United States, when every four years there's a risk that a treasonous lunatic (i.e. a Republican these days) will come in and unilaterally betray the deal?
 
2020-08-19 3:44:34 PM  
At this point, the smart thing for Iran to do is see how this election shakes out.

And maybe even flash us some support.

The people running Iran from the Religious side, the Dictator side, and the "Elected Government" side are not stupid.  They are aware Donald Trump *is* stupid, and will be gone soon.  They will drag their feet and saber rattle until there is an administration that will negotiate in good faith.
