Pompeo’s Bombastic Iran Threats: A Sign Of Weakness?

Secretary of State Michael Pompeo threatened Iran with annihilation in a speech yesterday at the neoconservative Heritage Foundation. His twelve demands of Iran read like the demands made of Serbia in 1914 — they are designed not to reduce tensions but to lead to war. But is all the bombast in the Trump Administration on Iran just a sign of weakness? The claims in Pompeo’s speech are demonstrably false. Why lie when the lies are so easy to refute?

Thanks Dr Paul and Daniel

Iran has an Achilles heel. It’s the Trojan horse embedded inside it. That’s what the imperialists are putting their hopes on.

Loony Alex Jones might as well be Secretary of State. EVIL, HATEFUL, POINTLESS, RANDOM MURDER AND DESTRUCTION IS U.S. "POLICY." $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ Pompeo should get the "Gaddafi solution" up his ass.

I remember the French where buying oil from Iraq and where buying it with the Euro, shortly after the US invaded it.

Now France is buying gas from Iran and now the US want to invade Iran.

It's all about the dollar, two countries trade with a currency not the US dollar and one of them is invaded or heavily Sanctioned.

We must vote out all these Neocons and warmongers, also we need to have massive anti-war protests like during the Vietnam war and also like the protests before the Iraq War.

The USA has already started the celebration in the anticipation of yet another killing spree in the middle-east.

It's funny that you speak of Britain as being Amerika's lapdog, when the exact opposite is true. Amerika is run by London and Tel Aviv. Washington is a proxy government, our country used to fight wars for the Limeys and the Jews – and will continue to be until such time as the US is maxed out and all used up, when both limey and jew will move on to bleed their next victims

It's Pompeos duty working for the Rothschilds to usher in Rothschild banking in Iran in these final days before the New World Order.

Pompeo just exposed how scared Isreal is and they don't know what to do about it

That's a declaration of war against Iran. In fact a true Iranian patriot leader would prepare immediately including nukes.

1. That is it: Pompeo´s Bombastic Iran threats are a sign of weakness!
The US have their imperial overstretch gone too far.

2. The turning away from the petro dollar, one of the main reasons of US threats, will eventually attribute to a downfall of the American economy, or at least to a forced retreat .

3. The Roman Empire had its military height , when everything else, morale, social unrest, economic problems etc. were already on the downfall. Look at the US.

With the bloody stories of Gaddafi and Hussein not too distant before, and this Pompeo's Plan B with Iran, one would really wonder if it make any sense for Donald's Rocket Man to surrender his nukes.

Bolton can not be trusted, praying The Good Lord intervene and visit this man and see the bad things this man has done to other countries, example IRAQ. GOD help us.

Thank you for another great and intellectual discussion. Iranians have been under Sanctions during 50s when Mosadegh was a president and nationalized Iranian oil, before the coup. Iranians have been under sanctions under every US president since 1978 revolution. The new sanctions are uniting Iranians inside Iran. Although we have CIA, Mossad, and Al-Qaeda/DAESH operatives inside Iran trying to stir things. But Iran is not a new or Arab country. Iranians are nationalist and unite together, when others attack Iran.

I remember the story of the country that left the little boy to watch for the wolf. "We the People" have left the little boys in Washington to cry wolf so many times that the real men have stopped responding to their false flags. So now when the real attack comes no one will believe them and we will have used all our resources and burned all our bridges with allies.
