  1. It certainly looks we are being dragged into war against Iran for Israel. Israel is nothing more than a criminal enterprise. It should not exist. Yet Trump is a proven servant who willfully subverts and ignores the desires of the American people for a true peace in the middle east. Trump’s allegiance to Israel is our doom.

  2. “Mohammed”, are you writing from Saudi Arabia or Israel? I can’t tell whether you stink of Wahhabism or Zionism?! Wait, is there really a difference?

  3. I wish Fred would address Kevin’s points about US terrorism and subservience to Israel, but like all the other pretenders, he just dismisses the idea as a fantasy. He does this because he cannot address the topic objectively. To do that, he would have to admit that Kevin is right, because there can be no denying that America has killed more innocent civilians than any other nation since WW2, or that agents of fake Israel have hijacked American politics and media. Fred can make all the excuses he wants for Trump to back out of the deal, but when push comes to shove, Iran is in full compliance and Trump promised the parasites at the AIPAC convention that he would tear up the deal. It’s on tape. He’s doing Israel’s bidding. While there is a long list of 100+ Jews who managed and sponsored Trump’s campaign, the 17 ‘intelligence’ agencies search for anyone who might have spoken to a Russian at some point in their lives. It’s f’n embarrassing to watch and I’m not even Murican

  4. Another Farce from you dear Kevin.
    Bush Sr did not declare war on Iran?
    Bush Jr did not declare war on Iran?
    Obama did not declare war on Iran?
    The whole lot of Neocons like Hilary, Paul Wolfowitz, Elliott Abrams, Richard Perle and Paul Bremer came and went…but NO war against Iran
    They waged war against Pakistan, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Sudan, Egypt (regime change), but NOT against Iran and you keep up with your old sensationalization and propagandizing that “Trump to declare war on Iran” with a question mark.
    I am sure you know why?
    Because the Neocons understand very well that Iran constitutes a deviant sect which has caused enough harm to Muslims in the past. Iran’s covert help to USA and NATO’s Iraq invasion and Iran’s help to mass murderer Assad are the latest examples.
    This is the reason USA has rewarded Iran with control over Iraq and allowing Iran an unabashed interference in Syria and Yemen..

  5. It is outrageous to have attention diverted to this issue when we now know Israel along with Bush, Cheney and some four star generals did 9/11 to the U.S. and must be punished for it. Israel is the enemy of the U.S. not the friend. All efforts of the corrupt Injustice Dept. of the U.S. should be on arresting and bringing to justice all the perps who carried out this attack on the U.S. and ultimately jailing all of them not wasting time and energy on a meaningless diversion to divert attention from the real criminals in Israel who have illegally hi jacked our government from us. All money and support to the outlaw nation of Israel must end along with all dual citizenships. Israel treats Palestinians like garbage aided and abetted by the corrupt U.S. Government. This must end soon.

  6. That would make me wonder if those behind Trump would openly declare war on any country. In most cases they do it like JFK said in his historic speech about secret societies: Infiltration instead of invasion, Guerillas by night instead of armies by day etc.
