Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, April 21, 2017

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has announced that Iran remains compliant with the nuclear deal reached during the Obama administration -- but added that deal could be amended or suspended. ... The announcement comes as the administration is playing hardball with other perennial U.S. adversaries, such as the Syrian government, as well as North Korea. But the secretary conceded that Tehran had met its obligations under the nuclear deal as of Tuesday.

Despite the State Department and Tillerson confirming that Iran has complied with the nuclear deal, President Trump insisted otherwise and said the country is "not living up to the spirit" of the 2015 agreement. ABC News notes, "Trump did not give any additional details about Iran's adherence to the pact."

This is the problem of having BLOTUS lie so easily about absolutely EVERYTHING from the important issues, like where the Arrrrmaaaaadaaaa is steaming or that we have no troops in Syria (which we obviously do) to minor things like the impressiveness of the size of his electoral college victory (not even in the top 30) or the tiny size (in comparison to the black guy's enormous size) of his inaugural crowd, and how delicious the chocolate cake with rat turds was. I believe the State Department and Rexxon on this matter. We have partners in this agreement, and none of them are raising any alarm. If Drumpf tried to take us to war over Iranian non-compliance, I would hope the military and congress would have a hard look at any "proof." Right now, it sounds like combover Caligula is talking out his ass with nothing to back it up. The "spirit of the agreement" what the hell does that mean anyway? Are they complying with the letter of the agreement? The answer appears to be yes.

Now the US is in the awkward position of either accepting a treaty the new regime has publicly criticized or being the first party to violate said treaty.

These are the actions of a bully and a brat.

Which.

Is the perfect description of Republicans.

Tear up the Geneva Convention, ignore international courts, withdraw from treaties whenever they cease to be convenient... and yet they call themselves the party of law and order.

The headline is completely inaccurate. We know this because Trump, Republicans and every DR conservative told us Iran would/was violating the treaty and producing nukes.

Please change the headline accordingly.

They are only the party of law and order when the laws benefit them directly and can be used to control OTHER people

... violating the treaty ...

Your premise fails. The deal with Iran is not a treaty.

"Pact" then. Your nitpicking notwithstanding, my point stands.

Oh my. The good counselor seems to have lost the ability to form words. Or is that a US civil code citation format with which I am unfamiliar?

#12 - It either means "Go F Yourself" or "Good For You." There seems to be a great distance between the two :)

You mean like they did with the "proof" of the gas attack in Syria before they attacked another sovereign nation with scores of tomahawk missiles just so Lil Donnie could look tough?

Hope you are working on your survival bunker.

Cause we are screwed if you are depending on Congress and our military and the MIC to stop Trump from starting WWIII.
