Donald Trump threatens to end Iran.

President Donald Trump on Sunday ratcheted up his rhetoric toward Iran, warning that a fight with the United States would “be the official end of Iran.”

“If Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end of Iran,” Trump said in a tweet. “Never threaten the United States again!”

The tweet comes amid rising fears over a potential military confrontation between the two countries. Officials in Washington are debating recent intelligence regarding whether Iran or the militias it supports are possibly planning to attack US assets or whether it is acting defensively in an attempt to deter US action.

But Trump took a seemingly more subdued tone in an interview with Fox News that aired Sunday evening.

“I just don’t want them to have nuclear weapons, and they can’t be threatening us. And with all of everything that’s going on, and I’m not one that believes — you know, I’m not somebody that wants to go into war, because war hurts economies, war kills people most importantly — by far most importantly,” he said.

“I don’t want to fight. But you do have situations like Iran, you can’t let them have nuclear weapons — you just can’t let that happen,” he said.

“You can’t let them have nuclear weapons.” That is why President Obama negotiated that Iran deal you fuckwit!

Trump seems to think that by making these threats on Twitter he is scaring people into wanting to make a deal with him, but that is not true. 

Sure GOP politicians fear the tweets because they are all cowards, but countries like China, North Korea, and Iran all know that Trump is all show and no go. 

They also have likely read the news articles that say Trump’s own people do not listen to him, and that many of his directives are either completely ignored or watered down in some way. 

In short, Trump is a toothless tyrant who can kick and scream all he wants but will never completely get his way.

    ““Australians elected someone who once brought a lump of coal into Parliament urging us to dismiss the warnings from climate scientists, and to dig up more coal instead,” Professor Stephan Lewandowsky, an Australian cognitive scientist, told ThinkProgress in an email. “There is little doubt that his government will do precisely that.”

    “We have lost Australia for now,” warned Penn State climatologist Michael Mann in an email. “A coalition of a small number of bad actors now threaten the survivability of our species,” “

    “There was no violation of the Iran nuclear agreement,” Kasich said. He noted that America’s European allies were making sure Iran sticks to the terms of the agreement.

    “The president ignored the whole thing,”

    “Now we withdrew and it’s possible that they’ll restart their program,”

      “The mayor of Nome, Alaska, called for greater tourism between the U.S. and Russia in an interview that aired Monday on Hill.TV’s “Rising.”

      “The strategic importance of the Bering Strait is absolutely unbelievable. The state of Alaska has more than half of the coastline of the entire United States of America,” Richard Beneville told hosts Krystal Ball and Saagar Enjeti. “That blows my mind.”

      “I grew up in the Cold War,” he continued. “I’m not a saber rattler at all, but I think it was [former British Prime Minister Winston] Churchill who said, ‘If you don’t learn from history sometimes you’re doomed to repeat it.’ And there [is] a lot of history we don’t want to repeat.”

      “We’re about a hundred miles from Russia, and I do tourism with Russia — not as much as I’d like to, I’d like to see that open — but from resources, accessibility of the Arctic Ocean,” he continued.

      Nome stands to benefit from greater tourism, given its location on the southern portion of the Seward Peninsula on the Norton Sound of the Bering Sea.

      Beneville, who owns a tour company, is promoting an infrastructure project for the state’s northernmost deep-water port, which he said would help diversify Alaska’s economy.

      More than 700 vessels came through the port last year; however, the facility was built to accommodate 40 or 50 vessels.

      “That’s called climate change,” Beneville said. “It’s having an incredible effect on the far north.”

    OT/
    “Donald Trump’s presidency has caused a large increase in self-reported levels of stress among the American people. This will impact their health for generations.
    Authoritarianism is not just a political and moral crisis — it is a public health crisis as well. There is the biological component of how the human brain is hardwired to respond to the environment. Nurture also influences how the brain develops and therefore processes information — and this in turn helps to shape political values and behavior.
    it is generating a huge amount of stress and of the type that is of the worst sort. This is the stress that pushes people towards parochialism and banding together with comfortingly similar faces. This type of stress pushes people towards being less empathetic. It pushes towards the worst kinds of stress management, which is scapegoating.
    Trumpism and other types of right-wing populism in the United States and elsewhere are a symptom of deep feelings of loneliness and social atomization. Right-wing authoritarianism is also a story of a loss of social capital. Trump’s followers and other authoritarians are desperate for a feeling of community. It is not surprising that some observers have described Trump’s rallies as being like church revivals. “political sadism” by Trump and other conservatives has been so effective. Right-wing leaders abuse their supporters and then those same supporters feel compelled towards the political leaders who are hurting them.
    religion is mostly good at decreasing the anxieties that it invented in the first place.”

    Can anyone intelligently explain why it is up to US to ecide who can and can not ave nuclear weapons? As a young child I never understood who made us the authoirty and I still can’t figure it out. US lags far behind in so many things, why should anyone listen to us as the authority?

      It all goes back to The Bible being misinterpreted. That is always always always always the problem. The ignorant don’t “feel” ignorant.
