War on Iran

Iraqi Prime Minister Abdul-Mehdi speaking to Iraqi Parlament

Abdul-Mehdi spoke angrily about how the Americans had ruined the country and now refused to complete infrastructure and electricity grid projects unless they were promised 50% of oil revenues, which Abdul-Mehdi refused.

This is why I visited China and signed an important agreement with them to undertake the construction instead. Upon my return, Trump called me to ask me to reject this agreement. When I refused, he threatened to unleash huge demonstrations against me that would end my premiership.

Huge demonstrations against me duly materialized and Trump called again to threaten that if I did not comply with his demands, then he would have Marine snipers on tall buildings target protesters and security personnel alike in order to pressure me.

I refused again and handed in my resignation. To this day the Americans insist on us rescinding our deal with the Chinese. After this, when our Minister of Defense publicly stated that a third party was targeting both protestors and security personnel alike (just as Trump had threatened he would do), I received a new call from Trump threatening to kill both me and the Minister of Defense if we kept on talking about this “third party”.

Iran has long been a target of Israel and the military-Industrial complex (Deep State) to control the world’s supply of oil.

Three billionaires, . Sheldon Adelson, Bernard Marcus and Paul Singer , among Trump’s biggest campaign donors have been major forces in pushing the U.S. into war with Iran. Adelson, for his part, has advocated launching a nuclear weapon against Iran as a negotiating tactic and threatening to nuke Tehran, a city with a population of 8.8 million.

Marcus and Adelson, who are also board members of the Likudist Republican Jewish Coalition , have already received substantial returns on their investment: total alignment by the U.S. behind Israel, the move of the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, and the official dropping of “occupied territories” to describe the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

The Democrats could have prevented any Trump war with Iran, but in deference to their own military industrial complex (Deep State) funders, they have refused to end the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) while supporting the FY2020 NDAA military budget bill without restraints on Trump as to pursuing war with Iran.
