My head is spinning … Blompf has gone full MIGA:
“WASHINGTON — President Trump said on Monday that he was designating a powerful arm of the Iranian military as a foreign terrorist organization, the first time that the United States has named part of another nation’s government as that type of official threat.
The designation imposes wide-ranging economic and travel sanctions on the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps as well as organizations, companies and individuals with ties to it. Iran’s Revolutionary Guards carry out operations across the Middle East, train Arab Shiite militias and oversee businesses in Iran.
Monday’s designation “will significantly expand the scope and scale of our maximum pressure on the Iranian regime,” Mr. Trump said in a statement.
The designation was opposed by some top Trump administration national security officials who said it could incite retaliation by Tehran against American troops and intelligence officers. It takes effect April 15, but was announced Monday in what American officials described as a chaotic and rushed process. …
But Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and John R. Bolton, the national security adviser, pushed for it, a Trump administration official said. The fighting among the senior administration officials intensified after The New York Times disclosed the pending designation last month.
I’m a peaceful populist.
I don’t have any problem with Iran. I have no idea why Iran’s military is being designated a “terrorist organization.” Is there some wave of Shi’ite terrorists killing Americans that I have missed? It sure seems to me like Blompf wants us to fight all of Israel’s enemies.
I’m wondering … what do the “progressives” think about this? Are they as horrified as we are by Blompf selling our foreign policy to these neocons and their wealthy Jewish donors?
Note: We’re obviously currently getting Israel First. HONK HONK!
