Trump makes key move to beat Biden in their race to start a war with Iran

 
Less than two months from November's US general election, Donald Trump decided to make a key move in order to secure support from the Israeli lobby. As in previous elections, the lobby is a critical factor which will determine to a significant degree the outcome of the election. 
 
We are talking about the recent Israel's deals with the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain that have been achieved through US interference.
 
As the BBC reported: [emphasis added]
 
US President Donald Trump has hailed the "dawn of a new Middle East", amid Israel's landmark deals with the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain. Mr Trump spoke as the two Gulf states signed agreements fully normalising their relations with Israel. The three countries hailed the deals as historic, as did Mr Trump, whose administration helped broker them.
 
The Gulf states are just the third and fourth Arab countries to recognise Israel since its founding in 1948. Mr Trump hopes other countries will follow suit, but the Palestinians have urged them not to while their conflict remains unresolved. For decades, most Arab states have boycotted Israel, insisting they would only establish ties after Israel's dispute with the Palestinian was settled.  

[...]

All eyes will be on whether other countries in the region follow suit, above all Saudi Arabia. So far, the Saudis have signalled that they are not ready.

The agreements are also likely to usher in new security ties in a region where many of the Gulf Arab states share with the Israelis a common adversary in Iran.















         



The deal, which has been extensively promoted as a "normalizing relations" or even a "peace" deal, clearly serves Israel's interests in its effort to close fronts and form alliances among Arab nations against Iran.

Benjamin Netanyahu's words, "To all of Israel's friends in the Middle East, those who are with us today and those who will join us tomorrow ...", are clearly pointing Saudi Arabia, which will be the most critical factor that will shift the balance decisively against Iran in case its leadership decide to join these "peace" deals in the future.

The timing of this move by Trump, so close to the US general election, is not accidental at all and has two main targets. One, to signal to the Israeli lobby that he will do whatever it takes to prepare ground for a war against Iran. Two, to sell to the American voters a different profile - that of a peace-advocate president who seeks stability in the Middle East, contrary to previous US administrations who created the Middle East chaos.
 
So far, we had plenty of evidence that Donald Trump is more than willing to start a war with Iran during a possible second term. 

As we wrote early this year, even in his pre-election campaigns, Trump was rhetorically attacking Iran, a key player in the Middle East and longtime primary target of the US imperialism. Then, he hired John Bolton, one of the most sinister figures of the neocon gang, whose biggest 'wet dream' was to start a war with Iran at least since 2003. And, despite that Trump eventually fired him, it seems that he follows his plan to the letter.

So, the first thing Trump did to clear the way for the imperialists towards Iran, was to destroy the Iran nuclear deal. Without any reasonable excuse, Trump killed a deal that seemed to be working, and managed to dissatisfy even some of the closest US allies who were happy with it.

Then, he did the unimaginable thing to authorize the assassination of a top Iranian military official, who was also a leading figure of the fight against ISIS islamofascists. Trump's decision was not only unprecedented. It was taken in a time conveniently close to the 2020 US presidential election, permitting the US warhawks to achieve a maximum escalation with Iran right when they needed one. 

So, the imperialists will probably start a war with Iran as soon as possible after the 2020 presidential election. They will rush to do it because they don't want to give Iran enough time to build nuclear weapons. Right now, Donald Trump is the most convenient solution because he is still quite popular among his supporters. And he will not hesitate to follow the war schedule as he knows that he can't have a third term. But even an 'expendable' corporate Democrat would be quite easily maneuverable by the US deep state. 
 
Indeed, Trump's major opponent for the US presidency - Joe Biden - gave some good signs that he is willing to play the game of the deep state and the Israeli lobby concerning their plans against Iran. 
 
We already mentioned Biden's terrible response on whether he would lift sanctions on Iran due to the COVID-19 pandemic crisis. Biden didn't even bother to defend one of the very few positive achievements that the Obama administration - during which he served as vice-president - left behind: the Iran nuclear deal. 

Furthermore, we found that key people around Biden and his potential cabinet in case he wins November's election, are deeply connected with the Military-HighTech complex. And that they will not hesitate to make Iran a test field for the first AI war in history on behalf of this new complex. These people will seek to boost profits and serve interests of what appears to be the successor of the classic Military–Industrial complex we knew so far.

Obviously, Trump is using his current position to gain significant advantage against Biden in their race to start a war with Iran. It remains to see whether Biden will send more signals, in this narrow time-frame until November's election, to persuade the appropriate receivers that he will be a much more "efficient tool" in their hands to do their dirty work against Iran.

Day 1900: Julian Assange still in prison and under slow-motion execution by the Anglo-American imperialist criminals

failed evolution   On 11 April 2019, the Ecuadorian government of traitor Lenin Moreno, invited the Metropolitan Police into the Ecuadorian embassy in London, and they arrested Julian Assange . Since then, Assange is kept in Belmarsh high security prison in London, without actual charges.   The real reason world's number one political prisoner is still kept in this high security prison, is because he exposed horrendous war crimes carried out by the US imperialists and their allies.   The ruthless Western imperialist regime wants to punish the No1 real journalist in the world and make him an example for any Whistleblower or real journalist who will attempt to expose its big crimes in the future.   And the Anglo-American axis has now become officially a fascist coalition , framed by the rest of its Western pets. UK's Home Secretary Priti Patel, one of the most ruthless ever, decided to extradite Julian Assange to US. No surprise of course. The only question we had in mind is

Exposed: How Biden & Ukraine’s Fascists Worked Together to Block Peace with Russia

BreakThrough News   Newly released treaty negotiation documents show that Ukraine and Russia were very close to ending the war—more than two years ago, in April 2022. But U.S. imperialists and NATO have worked with and strengthened the right-wing in Ukraine to achieve their long-term goals in the region, including endless war, no matter how many people die. Brian Becker is joined by Eugene Puryear, co-host of The Freedom Side , to discuss the newly revealed documents showing how the Ukraine war nearly ended two years ago but were sabotaged by the intervention of the White House and the Ukrainian far-right. They discuss how Ukraine’s economy has been totally mortgaged to U.S. and European interests.

Israeli documents show expansive government effort to shape US discourse around Gaza war

As the Gaza war rages, Israeli funds target US college campuses and push to redefine antisemitism in US law   by Lee Fang and Jack Poulson   Part 3 - Substantial Israeli government involvement in American politics   Haaretz and the New York Times recently revealed that Chikli’s ministry had tapped a public relations firm to secretly pressure American lawmakers. The firm used hundreds of fake accounts posting pro-Israel or anti-Muslim content on X (formerly Twitter), Facebook and Instagram. (The diaspora affairs ministry denied involvement in the campaign, which reportedly provided about $2m to an Israeli firm for the social media posts.) But that effort is only one of many such campaigns coordinated by the ministry, which has received limited news coverage. The ministry of diaspora affairs and its partners compile weekly reports based on tips from pro-Israel US student groups, some of which receive funding from Israeli government sources . For example, Hillel International, a co-foun

A historical turning point has just occurred ... and it is not the Trump assassination attempt

globinfo freexchange   The biggest crime of our century, that is, the genocide of Palestinians by the Zionists has been almost forgotten. And while everyone is distracted by the war in Ukraine and the assassination attempt against Donald Trump, a development of historic proportions took place. The development either escaped from the corporate media radars in the West, or, deliberately ignored.   The integration of Russia's and India's payment systems marks the definite rejection of the Western SWIFT system, dominated by the US dollar, and the complete detachment of BRICS from this system.   As Kitco News reported recently:   The trend of de-dollarization continues to gain traction despite many analysts saying the threat is overblown as India and Russia have announced a new partnership that will see their respective payment systems – India’s RuPay and Russia’s MIR – integrated to allow for seamless cross-border transactions without the need for U.S. dollars.  The partner

Israeli documents show expansive government effort to shape US discourse around Gaza war

As the Gaza war rages, Israeli funds target US college campuses and push to redefine antisemitism in US law   by Lee Fang and Jack Poulson   Part 1 - Redefining antisemitism   Last November, just weeks into the war in Gaza, Amichai Chikli, a brash, 42-year-old Likud minister in the Israeli government, was called into the Knesset, Israel’s parliament, to brief lawmakers on what could be done about rising anti-war protests from young people across the United States, especially at elite universities. “ I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again now, that I think we should, especially in the United States, be on the offensive,” argued Chikli. Chikli has since led a targeted push to counter critics of Israel. The Guardian has uncovered evidence showing how Israel has relaunched a controversial entity as part of a broader public relations campaign to target US college campuses and redefine antisemitism in US law. Seconds after a smoke alarm subsided during the hearing, Chikli assured the l
