US President Donald Trump’s anti-Iran stance offers “further evidence” to claims that he is suffering from mental illnesses, says a prominent political commentator.

Veterans Today Editor Kevin Barrett made the comments in an interview with Press TV on Wednesday about Trump’s anti-Iran remarks following a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

At a joint press conference with Bibi, Trump vowed to “prevent Iran from ever developing, I mean ever, a nuclear weapon.”

Barrett noted that American and Israeli intelligence services had verified years earlier that Iran’s nuclear program is not directed towards developing nuclear weapons.

Apart from that, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has formerly issued a fatwa (religious decree) banning the possession and use of atomic bombs.

“So there’s really one country in the world that we don’t have to worry about, and it’s Iran,” said the Madison-based analyst.

He argued that Trump’s remarks tap into claims that he is suffering from mental illnesses.

“Here in the United States, there’s a discussion in some corners about the mental health of President Trump. In fact, a very large number of mental health professionals have signed off on a letter, saying that, basically we hate to diagnose people without actually seeing them in person, but in this case, we see a clear case of pathological narcissism an perhaps borderline sociopathy,” Barrett noted, calling his latest remarks on Iran “further evidence,” that prove the commander-in-chief is in need of “mental health help.”

Formalization of understanding

Iran’s nuclear deal with the world powers, including the US, also attests to the fact that Iran’s nuclear program enjoys a peaceful nature despite what the hawkish Israeli premier promotes.

Iran nuclear deal negotiators pose for a group picture at the United Nations building in Vienna, Austria July 14, 2015.

The deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), actually “formalized this understanding, which everyone in the world at that high level knows,” Barrett stated.

Dirty dossier

The peaceful approach in the nuclear program has also been emphasized by Tehran time and again, even before the JCPOA was clinched in 2015.

Despite all that, Bibi has been pushing his anti-Iran agenda by referencing Trump’s 2016 campaign promise to repeal or renegotiate the deal.

Earlier, he also met with British Prime Minister Theresa May to team up against the deal, which is backed by the UK, Germany, Russia, France and China as well as the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

Therefore, the two politicians’ anti-Iran stance lacks any evidence and feeds on “speculating, coming up with hyperbole and even developing a dirty dossier,” a Barrett argued.

Finishing a genocide

Tel Aviv, meanwhile, remains the only party in possession of a real nuclear arsenal in the Middle East.

“We’re back in this psychotic territory; this hallucination, this delusional world of Bibi Netanyahu that Iran’s after nukes,” said the analyst. “This is purely an excuse to try to create hostility towards Iran.”

The Israeli regime is attempting to “create an incident to provoke war.”

“Netanyahu wants a big Middle Eastern war, so he can finish the genocide in occupied Palestine,” Barrett said.

Bigger Middle East war

The two world leaders’ Middle East war agenda is also evident in scrapping the so-called two-state solution, pursued in the administration of former President Barrack Obama as a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The Israeli regime, which pursues a policy of so-called deliberate ambiguity about its nuclear bombs, is estimated to have 200 to 400 nuclear warheads in its arsenal.

According to March 2015 emails by former US secretary of state Colin Powell leaked in September, Israel has 200 nuclear weapons “targeted on Tehran.”

Barrett concluded by voicing hope that “among Trump’s many other mental disorders, his attention deficit disorder takes over and he basically forgets about Bibi’s entreaties to start a bigger war in the Middle East.”

  1. At this moment every one agrees that Iran is not building the bomb. But Israel wants a war and need a excuse to start that and that would be possible if the JCPOA is scraped. So Bibi is trying for it.

  2. US Marine, and Regular Army in Syria by April 15 is my guess. A complete 180 on his campaign promise. So disappointing.
    Dieing for a lie never goes out of style.
    Kraze!

  3. Trakkath The Donald and Bibi have been placed where they are now. Does it really matter if one has a greater mental illness than the other? The outcome will be the same a war – with severe consequences for humanity in all nations of this earth.
    A sickness might be also the lethargy of us people who have understood this but only have time to argue and discuss details of how, why and when the planet falls in the pit.
    Blaming Trump and Nethanyahu as single individuals responsible could not be further away from the truth.
    Replacing both “leading figures in crime” does not guarantee a directional change at all in world politics or in the creation of greater Israel.

  4. No, it is the other way around, Trump taps into Bibi´s sickness. It is like a bad aura what this war criminal is carrying around him.
