The noble goals of President Donald Trump were questioned today when North Korea was seen still active at their nuclear weapons manufacturing site by U.S. satellites. Iran has thrown another wrench into the White House machine as their leader, President Hassan Rouhani, refused Mr. Trump’s “offer of talks without preconditions,” AOL News has confirmed.
The Iranian leader also called the invitation “a humiliation” since the U.S. has sanctioned the suspected terrorist-endorsing nation and pulled out of the tempestuous nuclear deal. In the past, the irate Muslim leader said that Mr. Trump’s withdraw from the Kerry/Obama nuclear deal was “illegal” and that his nation would “not easily yield to Washington’s renewed campaign to strangle Iran’s vital oil exports.”
The move stemmed from President Trump’s offer to meet with the Islamic leader. It would appear that the head of Iran has concerns about talking openly with America’s president, a phobia that even the master hermit, Kim Jong-un, was able to overcome.
The head of Iran’s Strategic Council on Foreign Relations even said that there was “no worth” to the offer put forth by President Trump. Considering that Iran had threatened the U.S.A. and that the White House, in return, informed them that they “risked dire consequences few had ever suffered in history,” a talk would appear to have some worth regardless of what Rouhani would suggest to the contrary.
“Based on our bad experiences in negotiations with America and based on U.S. officials’ violation of their commitments, it is natural that we see no value in his proposal,” declared Kamal Kharrazi to the Fars News Agency.
“Trump should first make up for his withdrawal from the nuclear deal and show that he respects his predecessors’ commitments and international law,” the former foreign minister added.
Of course, the part of the story he leaves off is that Iran had broken the terms of the deal. This is a truth President Trump himself has tweeted and talked about in the past. Sorry liberals, but this was confirmed by the Huffington Post, so this is not a conservative theory.
Secondly, the nation is encouraged to chant and pray for the death of the U.S.A, Isreal, and various other allies even as the U.S. cash flowed in, as the BBC has shown.
Pundits like to say that this has united Iranians who were moderate with those who detested the U.S.A, but really, was America ever a popular subject or the topic of many prayers for blessings from Allah before this?
Ali Motahari, deputy speaker of Iran’s parliament and a so-called “moderate” voice said, “If Trump had not withdrawn from the nuclear deal and not imposed (new) sanctions on Iran, there would be no problem with negotiations with America.” He feels that it “would be a humiliation” to do so now, as he told state-owned IRNA News.
While he may feel that way, a meeting would not be nearly as humiliating as the possibly crushing military defeat of the anticipated outcome of any war between the U.S. and Iran.
This, hopefully, will never happen.
“The United States is not trustworthy. How can we trust this country when it withdraws unilaterally from the nuclear deal?” asked Iran’s interior minister, Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli. He never asked how the U.S.A. can trust a nation that has broken the terms of the deal and then bragged about it, though. If Mr. Trump did not feel humiliated talking to a boasting liar, why should Iran feel scorned?
“Respecting the Iranian nation’s rights, reducing hostilities and returning to the nuclear deal are steps that can be taken to pave the bumpy road of talks between Iran and America,” opined Hamid Aboutalebi in a tweet.
In the article, Iran goes on to say that they will impede President Donald Trump’s quest to get gas prices down and they imply that the U.S. working with Saudi Arabia makes Uncle Sam a puppet. Iran has only oil to use as a bargaining chip, so virtually no one is thought to be very shocked by the threat.
Even if this were not the case, it was the United States that was being “humiliated” by giving nuclear know-how and excessive capital (and BILLIONS IN GOLD) to a nation that prays for America’s death.
With President Trump in office, that humiliation has thankfully ended.
