Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, December 05, 2018

France and the UK have echoed warnings by Donald Trump's administration that Iran may be in breach of United Nations obligations by testing medium-range ballistic missiles capable of carrying multiple warheads. The remarks from Paris and London will be seen as the first sign that its key European partners may consider Iran's broader behaviour as so dangerous that their support for the 2015 Iran nuclear deal can no longer be justified.

Iran is a Reich wing theocracy. The Iran nuke deal slowed down their nuke program, that is good. Hopefully the diplomats can stop their missile testing too.

I just hope the MIC and their tools don't start a war with Iran that will kill millions just so the MIC can steal more US taxpayer treasure.

Did you Forget your fuhrer pulled us out of that deal?

There is no deal with us to violate anymore.

Without us in the deal violating it has no real consequences. UK and France going to show Iran what's what? Not without our military.

Or are we going to let UK and France start a war with OUR military?

France will be as tough enforcing their Nuke Deal as they are their gasoline taxes.

The US, on the other hand, has every right to shoot short, medium and long range missiles, as many as it wants with as many nuclear weapons it wants, even if is more than enough to end human life on earth. Only Americans can be trusted, because we're exceptional and even have special treaty canceling privileges.

Nope. I think a few more have that same trust. I forget who, but think there are a few. Maybe four.

You're not going to agree with me but testing missiles is not the same thing as continuing their nuclear ambitions. If these nations don't demand inspections then they don't deserve to be leaders. Demand inspections or else enact heavy sanctions but, of course, that will increase the cost of gas. It does seem that the world has now sacrificed our sense of right and wrong to the price of gas.

Yes, there is. The UNSC resolution is still the "binding international legal framework for the resolution of the dispute"

This applies to every nuclear country that isn't being targeted for sanctions due to nuclear programs. Why single out America unless you are purposefully just being anti-American?

They can do whatever they want. The US violated the agreement and resolution.

So tell me how Iran can violate an agreement after Trump voided it by pulling out?

It's unfortunate that Trump's dad didn't pull out.

#11, takehum,

The world has the UN, International Treaties whose content was largely written by the USA, a couple hundred countries, nine countries with nuclear weapons, and one superpower whose position is precarious given the rise of China engineered by that superpower. The USA has twice overthrown democratically elected Governments in Iran once by assassination. The results are much worse than if we had left them alone. Iran has every right to defend itself against our aggressions, just as we pretend that is the pretext for Israeli aggressions. This is part of a larger pattern of belief that rules are for everybody except the United States, which can do anything it wants.

We could probably safely develop thorium power but we don't. Instead we are poisoning the planet earth with spent uranium, plutonium and all its byproducts in search of global domination which is exactly what we condemned Hitler for doing. These toxins will threaten life and health for hundreds of thousands of years. It is madness born of an insatiable thirst for power which requires obedient slaves that do not exist. . The USA still enjoys and exploits a great deal of good will due to the critical role we played in WWII, especially with European and former Warsaw countries. We have exploited that good will.

This problem is the result of stupidity on the part of BushII and Trump in particular and neocons in general, who think bullying everyone else in the world is the best way to get what they want. They are wrong ethically and practically because we will not remain a superpower given a continued decline in manufacturing. It boils down to actually practicing the golden rule, do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

I want a peaceful world and the biggest obstacle to peace in this world are greedy American neocons. No one else is a close second at this time, but China will be soon and when they are it would be good if they followed the golden rule as well. We have not right to ask or expect them to do so, if we won't do that ourselves. Does that answer your question?

You are aware that the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action wasn't just between Iran and the US...right?

You did know that the signatories of the JCPA were Iran on one side and the P5+1 (China, France, Russia, United Kingdom, United States -- plus Germany), and the European Union on the other...right?

You do realize that the Iran, the P4, Germany and the entire EU are still honoring the terms of the JCPA...right?

The second Iran pisses off the other signatories they will pull out and Iran will be in even worse shape than it is with the US pressuring them, which is the point of the article.

Iran tested missiles?

Well. Let's definitely start a war.

The MIC has a bunch of bombs we want to drop.

Besides. Iran is a banned country, part of the axis of evil, the biggest sponsor of terrorism, Muslim, took hostages 40 years ago, chant death to America, want Israel wiped off the map, and use rose water to make everything. I mean. Wtf!

Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran.
