Trump tweets, Iran is “working with North Korea” in ballistic missile development

If Trump’s UN speech revealed anything, it showed that after North Korea is “dealt” with, Iran is next on the list of “bad-actors” to be disciplined by American hegemony.

Forget about the fact that the one country that has attacked America this century, Saudi Arabia, is getting a pass.

US President Donald Trump said on Sunday that Iran was cooperating with Pyongyang following Iran’s latest ballistic missile test.

The Generals in charge of America’s foreign policy are boxing Trump in…they are directing the POTUS towards an interventionist presidency that will alienate his core base, and further embolden his liberal left attackers.

Connecting North Korea to Iran is dangerous, reckless, and simply untrue. If any country has helped North Korea develop its nuclear capability, it was Ukraine.

Trump posted on Twitter…

“Iran just test-fired a Ballistic Missile capable of reaching Israel. They are also working with North Korea. Not much of an agreement we have!”

On Saturday, Iranian media reported that the country had successfully carried out the test launch of a new ballistic missile, dubbed Khorramshahr, with a range of 2,000 kilometers (1,242 miles)…

Iran’s ballistic missile program has triggered the discontent and concerns of other states, in particular, the United States due to its possible links to the Iranian nuclear program. Despite the attempts by Washington to include the provisions, concerning the ballistic missiles, in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), or the Iran nuclear deal, the proposal was not supported by other signatories.

In July 2015, Iran, the European Union and the so-called P5+1 group of nations – the United States, the United Kingdom, Russia, China, France and Iran – signed the JCPOA, which led to gradual lifting of nuclear-related sanctions imposed on Tehran in exchange for assurances that its nuclear program would remain peaceful.

Pyongyang has contributed to the escalation on Korean Peninsula by number of nuclear-capable intercontinental ballistic missile launches and nuclear weapon tests in violation of the UN Security Council resolutions. The UN Security Council has imposed sanctions on North Korea, which, however, have failed to prevent Pyongyang from conducting new tests. During his recent speech at the UN General Assembly, Trump said the United States would “totally destroy” North Korea if it was forced to. North Korea has repeatedly claimed that nuclear weapons are only means of self-defense.

bush the III is doing what he is told by his surrogate father generals on how to play soldier for the zio-neo-cons. You don’t have to be “liberal left”, whatever that term means to know that tRump is being what he has always been, a loudmouth con man and dead shit. See the works of the late Wayne Barrett. “Mentally retarded dotard” is way too kind! Don’t play into this neocon game of “we create the reality and while you are responding we create another”. Call them out straightaway for the evil shit they are. scumbag neo-spenglerian kissinger has nothing… Read more »

That is how I see it also. The “news” feeds the neo-con game, although nowadays I suggest that is a misnomer: the US is in such dire straights that what we have is not just “tRump” (Love it. — How do you pronounce it? “T” as in “Tee”or “tea” and then Rump?) and “the generals”, but instead the full “Continuity of Government” apparatus. Anyway, what do we know? — N. Korea and tRump: it’s all just words. We know the US flew strategic bombers: shudder, shudder, shaky knees etc., so what are the bombers doing to do? We know the… Read more »

They might be trying to overturn the board game, but I still think the march of the empire of chaos is close to the end.

“The bigger picture behind Official Washington’s hysteria over Russia, Syria and North Korea is the image of a decaying but dangerous American hegemon resisting the start of a new multipolar order.”

With a 700 Billion “defense” budget you have to pick fights.
May the few targeted nations that remain above water endure.

How low can you go, Alex? Trump has been backtracking non-stop on his promises, your right-wing friends are praising him for his speech in the UN and you keep finding excuses for the man. There is no ”liberal left”, only the dominant neoliberal right-wing political class with two parties and your boy that run on a populist (right) platform has joined them.

Where do you the support of Trump in this article? He does not say anything of the sort that you read into it (or did you not read it and just digitally divide the world in to for or against or left or right?

I’ve read the article and it doesn’t take much to glean Christophorou’s support or the constant stream of excuses for Trump, a theme that appears in most of his articles due to his strong rightist bias which goes to the point of inventing convenient leftists. Maybe you should have been more attentive. Alex again repeats that Trump is ”pushed” by generals (that HE picked) to spew idiotic staements or write all sorts of bollocks in Twitter. He was indeed put under severe pressure from the beginning to modify his initial views on foreign policy, but after a certain point he… Read more »

I doubt that Iran and North Korea are cooperating. But they SHOULD be.Iran and North Korea (with a few other states) should form a defense pact. In which the attack on one is an attack on the other. And be responded too in the same manner. The US wants to pick them off “one after the other”.Don’t play that game. Team up in alliance.If the US thinks it can fight two or more wars at once (along with the other ones they are fighting),make them do just that.Waiting for Russia and China to defend them is a bad move for… Read more »

Yes, like a NATO pact where BRICS and other countries wishing to withstand the US plotting come together and respond when one is threatened or attacked.
