  1. Very well spoken, evidently some time ago as we now have Donald Trump in office who appears, perhaps is even bluffing, bellicose toward Iran.

    Let’s hope he sees things as you do and refuses to start WWIII.

    • This talk of peace is deception but everyone can see the smokescreen.

      It has been known for some time that Israel will be doing a false flag attack on US or US ally assets, blame Iran, and then use it as an excuse to “retaliate’ using nuclear weapons to bomb Iran’s facilities.

      Trump has been doing ‘dog whistles’ to let Israel know that using nuclear weapons is perfectly logical.

      The reasoning behind the events of 9/11 is still there, the perpetrators want the job finished.

      Obviously if Israel strikes Iran with nuclear weapons then the Straits of Hormuz will be closed in the war that takes place quickly afterwards which is why the UK and Australia are putting their naval vessels in the Straits of Hormuz to try and keep it open.

      No doubt Trump is hoping Robert O’Brien will be able to negotiate something once Israel has done considerable damage to Iran’s oil and nuclear energy resources.

      The world has already replaced Iran’s oil supply with oil from other suppliers.

      Iran’s and its allies know about this plan and have strategies in place so they can act very quickly once it begins. Leading up to the war they will not be fooled by talk of peace but the people in the UK and US probably will be.

      We are in for an incredibility massive amount of destruction in a very short time period.
