Iran will in all probability be the first country to be nuked since Japan! Their own fault!

Van Hellslinger says:

Trump is Vindicated for the sanctions. a couple weeks ago Iranian assassins were caught in Paris and Denmark and now some EU countries are agreeing with Trump . Trump vindicated over and over again. Now EU countries have over 800 miles of Border Fences and Wall to keep out Immigrants. It was the EU that served as the Poster Boy for the Fantasy of a World Without Borders. The Callie Leftists are all aboard with such nonsense of letting in millions of immigrants, and now the EU is falling down on their commitment to the fantasy. In fact Hungary recently elected a new President that ran on the promise of Keeping Muslims out of Hungary. Wake Up you stupid Leftists, Trump is the best thing to come to America. AND guess what– He will make Mexico pay for the wall. For after it's built there won't be any free ride to USA, they will have to pay every time they cross over.

Looks like the Persian empire is rising to be a world military leading edge manufacturing power. Extremely smart scientists. What makes them brilliant is how innovative they are chained by sanctions. Unlike the Zionist slaves, the Wahabis, the Iranians have a vision hundred years ahead.

Grace Antonio says:

I'm convinced the real reason why the US has been so negative about Iran is bcoz Iran's turning out to be another competion in its emergence as a progressive country. US wants only itself as top dog having influence all over the world!

Keep it up Iran. Protect your country from our Zionist government.

fafar gol says:

Nobody wants to see a repetition of US policies in Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Libya, Yemen and Syria that have resulted in horrendous bloodshed and have given rise to the terrorist scourge and the refugee problem in Europe.

Let us not make a mistake, war is the inevitable logic of Trump’s and Israeli policies, and they will be solely responsible if another conflict breaks out in the Middle East.

There is no doubt that Trump’s new policy towards Iran bears the hallmark of Netanyahu and his supporters in the White House who write Trump’s speeches for him.
