During the election, I wrote a little ebook titled “Donald Trump’s War on Islam.” In addition to pointing out Trump’s pandering to Islamophobia, I wrote about his association with a number of neocons, including Frank Gaffney and John Bolton, who is now his national security adviser. “I think John Bolton’s a good man,” Trump told the Hugh Hewitt Show.
“I watched him yesterday, actually, and he was very good in defending me in some of my views, and very, very strong. And I’ve always liked John Bolton. Well, we are thinking about it, Hugh [nominating Bolton as secretary of state]. I will say that. We are thinking about it. I mean, the negative is what I told you. But we are seriously thinking about it.”

President Trump’s trashing of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action has nothing to do with nuclear weapons, missile development, or even Iran’s supposed role as the world’s top sponsor of terror.
It’s about squeezing the Iranian economy with harsh sanctions. It’s about making the people of Iran scream. It’s about overthrowing the mullahs and installing the Mujahedeen Khalq—MEK for short—also known as the People’s Mujahedeen.
Last year John Bolton, now Trump’s right hand man on foreign policy, told a gathering of MEK supporters the organization—formerly listed as a terrorist group—is a “viable” alternative to the current government in Iran.

In my exchanges in the twitterverse, I have experienced a remarkable degree of ignorance concerning the history of Iran and Syria.
MAGA supporters, in particular, seem clueless.
Iran hates us, they insist, and they want to wipe Israel off the map. Plus they are trying to get the capability to attack us with nukes, so that’s why we have to attack them first.

National Security Adviser John Bolton is lying again.
He says the US has no intention of invading Iran, taking it back to the Stone Age like he and his fellow neocons did to Iraq in 2003.
On Tuesday, the Washington Examiner reported:

Following the failure of Bibi Netanyahu’s Iran-has-nukes PR gimmick, the Israelis are desperate for an incident to get their long awaited war with Hezbollah, Syria, and Iran going.
Haaretz reports that Israel officials “believe” Iran will retaliate after the IDF attacked them on April 9 in Syria. Close to a month has passed and the Iranians have not responded, obviously realizing the consequences.

Rudy Giuliani, the former New York mayor who recently joined buddy Trump’s legal team to do battle against Robert Mueller, gave a speech to the Iran Freedom Convention for Democracy and Human Rights in Washington on Saturday. He said Trump is committed to regime change in Iran.
Giuliani, infamous for his crossdressing antics with Trump, also performed a theatrical stunt at the convention.

The squabbling between self-identified progressives and conservatives continues as social media transforms itself into a news, information, and opinion gatekeeper.
All information that contradicts the establishment narrative will either be downgraded into obscurity of excluded outright on social media.

Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman is concerned Syria may finally be able to defend itself against Israel’s attacks.

I’m a Russian bot.
I don’t consider myself a Russian bot. I’m just a semi-retired old man who criticizes the government on social media.
According to the government and its media, I am a Russian bot, or possibly a useful idiot for Russian president Vladimir Putin, who is, according to them, the New Hitler. They say Putin is trying to destroy the West using social media.

Poor Trump. He’s a sucker for a lemon.
That’s what Bibi Netanyahu’s show was—an old wreck passed off as something new and revealing, a flimflam to get a big war going.
It’s not clear if The Donald completely understood what his counterpart in Israel had presented. He didn’t sit through the entire presentation. Fox News will encapsulate it for him.
