How Trump’s Iran Tantrum Imperils Our Future

Share
Bolton

The dangers of arrogance and ignorance are nowhere more starkly illustrated than in Donald Trump’s Oval Office, where anguished advisers seek constantly to steer a rogue president away from international disaster. And now the stakes of his stubborn stupidity have gone nuclear.

Having disparaged the Iran nuclear deal for years — without actually understanding its provisions or even the process that produced it — Trump now sounds determined to abrogate that agreement. In his dismal address to the United Nations last Tuesday, he repeated his usual sneering refrain: “The Iran deal was one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into.”

Whatever motivates Trump, beyond his swollen egotism and hatred of all things Obama, he seems unable to comprehend the perils such a tantrum will set loose.

Those perils begin with untold damage to the credibility of the United States among the world’s nations, only partially restored by the Obama administration’s diplomacy after the debacle of the Iraq war. Whatever Trump and his press parrots may say about Iran, the facts are not on his side in his attacks on the nuclear deal or Tehran’s adherence to its strictures. And whatever Trump may believe about his capacity to twist the truth in domestic politics, facts matter in the big world.

The Rouhani government, moderate by comparison with its predecessors, has faithfully complied with the dismantling of its uranium enrichment facilities. We know that because the U.S. State Department, led by Trump appointee Rex Tillerson, has certified Iran’s full compliance — not once but twice, as recently as two months ago. (Someone should tell the president.)

For political reasons, and perhaps to placate their obstreperous boss, administration officials like Tillerson qualify that certification. They say that Iran is in “technical compliance” with the deal, as if there is any other kind. But the regime of metrics and inspections that insure the deal works is highly technical. It doesn’t matter whether the Iranians smile or not.

Nor does it matter, as the White House suggests, whether Iran is pursuing other policies disliked by us and our allies. The nuclear deal was negotiated not by the United States alone, but by a coalition of major powers that included the Europeans, Russia, and China. Their cooperation, which brought Iran to the bargaining table, was based on the exclusion of all extraneous issues from the deal. (Someone should explain that to the president, too.)

So for the United States to abrogate the nuclear deal in the absence of any violations by Iran would represent a betrayal of those international partners — whose cooperation on other issues is vital to our interests — as well as Iran. The consequences are potentially catastrophic, not just in the Middle East but in other zones of conflict such as the Korean peninsula.

Consider the prospect of war with Iran, which unlike Saddam’s Iraq possesses a large, competent, and heavily-armed military force. Any such conflict would threaten to escalate into a broad regional conflict with millions of casualties and untold destruction to the world economy and environment.

But even if war doesn’t ensue with Iran, Trump’s abandonment of the nuclear deal will only encourage other states to build nuclear arsenals and distrust any diplomatic effort to limit those weapons. The obvious and immediate case is North Korea, where the world community is desperately seeking to draw Kim Jong-un into negotiations. Yet why should Kim or any other bellicose dictator engage with the United States or its partners again, on any issue, if the Trump administration now punishes Iran for fulfilling its obligations?

The lesson would be all too clear: The Iranian government should never have undertaken the political and military risks inherent in dealing with the United States and its partners, because the word of the U.S. government is worthless. The stain on our reputation will carry costs to us and our children that we cannot begin to imagine.

    It is absurd, to the point of lunacy, even for Trump, to abrogate the Iran Agreement at the very time you’re trying to get the DPRK to enter into a similar agreement. This, strictly by itself, ought to give Trump pause.

    Since, the agreement is multi-lateral, I’m unsure what a uni-lateral declaration of default, by the USA, would do. What good would the US banning of certain imports would do to Iran, when those goods are readily available from other sources.

    An embargo is ridiculous as the ships would be carrying goods from US Allies. Leave aside Russia and China, think about using force, or the threat of force, to stop a French or German ship.

    I do not share Mr. Conason’s belief in the difficulty in overthrowing the Iranian Government. Mr. Conason does, however miss several key ramifications of such an attack, immediately successful or not:

    1. The USA is firmly planted on one side of the Sunni/Shia Muslim divide.
    1a. That side is not the one of a majority of Muslims in the world.
    2. Unlike Iraq, there is only the barest of justification for the attack.
    3. Unlike Iraq, there is not even the fig leaf of an opposition eager to topple the Government. Not even Dick Cheney will claim that we’d be welcomed as liberators.
    4. Destroying the Iranian government will commit the US to occupation as pacification for years to come. Neither Presidents Bush or Obama found a good way out of Afghanistan. Iran could become Afghanistan 2.0.
    5. Such wars of pacification play to the weaknesses of the US Army.
    5a. The Iraq war stretched the US Army to the breaking point.

    Trump is a master self-promoter and conman. He truly excels in those areas but it should be obvious to everyone by now that outside of those areas of expertise he is a very ignorant and imbecilic man with serious psycho-emotional issues. I fully realize the dangers of a Pence presidency given that he will be more competent at moving legislation that will set the country back 100 years but is he a lunatic who may end up destroying America?

      Suggest the answer lies in the definition of destroy.

      If your looking at a nuclear Ragnarok; Trump’s more likely to be behind it.

      If you’re looking at pollution run rampant, taxes only for those not wealthy enough to get around them, an aristocracy based on unearned inherited wealth, media access only to those who can afford it, public schools destroyed, persons of color reduced to living in Ghettos, immigration eliminated, and the vote restricted: Pence is the answer.

          Trump isn’t the leader in all that.. The republican congress is behind those things and trump? Well trump will sign anything they flop in front of him.. That’s trump’s job along with being belligerent and threatening to the nation and the world in order to cover up what the pubic hares are committing in the background. Is he just as guilty? Of course he is. Will pence follow suit? Not if Mueller has anything to say about it.

            As much as I despise the GOP controlled Congress, I have to disagree. Trump is the architect of all the EOs he has signed over turning every EO signed by President Obama. He decided to pull out of the Paris Climate Change Accord. He danced with the relatives and friends of the 9/11 terrorists when he visited Saudi Arabia. He ended the DACA. He authorized the construction of the Keystone pipeline. He ended regulations designed to protect consumers, the environment, and worker’s safety. He has been engaged in a crusade to over turn everything President Obama accomplished, including the ACA, which Congress is, indeed, enthusiastically trying to do.

    The reason, the only reason, Trump is considering reneging on the Iran nuclear deal is because it was negotiated and signed by President Obama. For a racist, that makes that agreement a bull’s eye. Remember, this is the same guy that refused to sell or rent real estate to African Americans, the man that pulled out of the Paris Climate Accord, the man that ended the DACA, and just about every regulation negotiated by President Obama. He is also the man that called Black football players protesting what they regard as discriminatory practices SOBs. It is important to remember that while his statements and actions are making the USA the laughing stock of the world, they are received enthusiastically by crowds such as the one that gathered to listen to El Trumpo’s harangues last night in Huntsville, Alabama. He is narcissistic, vindictive, a white supremacist, ignorant, and arrogant, but he is not dumb. He sensed the mood of the country last year better than anyone else, and became POTUS. He, a reality show man, continues to sense the mood of the country better than all pollsters combined, and his approval ratings at home are rising. Is he unstable? Absolutely! Is he dangerous? You better believe it! But he is not dumb.

      I have to disagree.. He’s dumb because by his crowds, he believes they represent the entire nation thus he’s doing this for the entire nation. Only when he reads differently, especially in the truth finding media, he goes ballistic because they are telling him that he doesn’t represent the entire nation and as he believes he does it’s then fake news. This in my books is the epitome of not only dumb but blatant, hard headed ignorance. Why else would he believe anyone who doesn’t view him as he views himself, as his followers view him, giving him authentication of how he views himself
      call them his enemy? No other president, not even Bush ll viewed the nation and his critics in such a manner. Not since Nixon have we experienced such a self-centered, self- important potentate as is donald trump.

        Unfortunately, the popular vote does not count for much in presidential elections. What decides who our next president will be is the Electoral College, and with about 36 States crimson red, his re-election chances are better than a lot of people think. The same applies to removal from office. Even if the Mueller investigation proves collusion with the Russians, and obstruction of justice, the GOP controlled Congress may not act on it, and even if they do, and El Trumpo is impeached, they will not remove from his office, and his loyal followers, who see themselves in him, will vote for him in 2020, not only because they agree with his bizarre behavior and ignorance, but as revenge against the intellectuals that dared humiliate a champion of white supremacy.

          I can’t agree with you more Dom.. So long as we allow the electoral college to be involved it could very well be a slam dunk but it can be disputed if each and every liberal and democrat decides to vote dem, tens of millions more votes than the EC winner would cause a national uproar.. I’m surprised Hillary’s 2.9 million didn’t stir the manure but then again a certain orange turnip kept keeping everyone busy with illegal voter BS.. However with his destructive rule of getting rid of the illegals, tens of millions of extra votes will not be able to hold up as illegal come 2020.. We can only hope the liberals will join the party that becomes the nominated class this time and not waver because it’s not who they wanted, after all that’s how the rethugs voted.

      We could argue a good long time about whether Trump is truly dumb or concealing his devious intentions by acting stupid. He may have low IQ (STEM skills and reading/writing) but high EQ (the grifter’s ability to read the crowd emotionally). I was amazed that Trump could carry on a conversation for over an hour with Vladimir Putin, whose intelligence I do not question (his motives, yes).

      Either way, what worries me is the question of whether he can be manipulated. Sometimes I wish he could be manipulated, by his Chief of Staff, for example, now that it’s Kelly. The supposed positive influences of Jared and Ivanka seem never to have materialized. Chuck and Nancy, on the other hand, seem to have had some influence, as they timed their offer for a moment of desperation on Trump’s part. I would look for Putin to do the same.
      Sometimes, I hope Trump is as dumb as a bucket of hair, so that even bad actors like Bannon give up in disgust. His unquestioning racism and atrocious public speaking performances suggest to me that he is channeling others like himself when he reads the crowd well. When Trump vacillates, as he did about Charlottesville, however, it looks to me as though he reads the crowd better than he speaks to the crowd, or he would not have had to backtrack and repeat himself so much, losing face by doing so (that probably sailed right past Trump).
      If he’s too stupid to be manipulated by a bad actor, that would be good news, as it would keep him from doing as much harm as a Pence presidency. Trump is an embarrassment to the office he holds, and he’s appointed cabinet heads who would just as soon abolish their departments as run them. But I think the bureaucrats can keep our institutions in tact until Trump is just a bad memory.

        Sadly, being able to determine the mood of an audience, or in this case, a large segment of our population, us critical in politics. While Hillary focused on complex solutions to problems, he dished out facile slogans, and made ridiculous promises to an audience more inclined to believe in miracles than the realities we face, and how difficult it is to force other countries to do as we say, not as we do. Trump has the same traits that allowed charlatans throughout the course of history to take advantage of the naivete of others, and does not hesitate to use that ability to his advantage.

          These traits that got Trump elected are not unique to him, as you point out, and have emerged in leaders throughout history. I wish Democrats and Independents would steer clear of the popular argument that nominating candidates with Trump’s type of charisma is the solution. It’s doubtful whether a celebrity crush with a liberal agenda would be any more successful once in office than Trump is, just less potentially destructive.

I saw Adam Schiff on the news this week: I think he could be a contender, as they say. He certainly has the gravitas. Al Franken would be a celebrity candidate with some gravitas, too–ironically. These faces keep showing and then receding from view. I wonder if the folk running the Democratic Party from deep inside know something we do not about the upcoming revelations of the Mueller investigations. It could be that they have signaled all viable candidates to hide out until the tempest passes.

      You’re absolutely right about Trump not being dumb. But, he lacks the degree of intelligence to be able to infer and use inductive reasoning. He responds on impulse—based on a good understanding of his target audience—without being able to see most of the possible outcomes. The wanton burning of bridges is a clear example.

          The “unconditional support” is the key to his success. The unconditional love Trump’s supporters confer upon him is like an adolescent crush on a celebrity, in this case a reality television star. When he first won their hearts, I imagine they could hardly eat or sleep for loving him. They will do anything for him and love him no matter what he does, even if he hurts them or their loved ones. They buy merchandise to feed their obsession with him and track him physically or on social media wherever he goes. The ferocity of their devotion to their “beloved leader” has a practically biological component to it. As a high school and college, I wondered if the celebrity crush was a rite of passage, easing adolescents into adulthood by prying them away from the equally strong bonds connecting them to their parents. I suppose that is, in part, the function of hazing in all of its odious variety, gang culture, and electing prom queens and kings (arguably, Donald Trump never got past this stage).

    What more can I add besides what me esteemed colleagues here have already posted?
    However, Trump is more than a dotard. Jealousy compounded with narcissism, inordinate hubris, and an acquired mean-spirited and pompous nature makes for part Napoleon, a bit of Manson, some Norman Bates of “Psycho”, and a dash of Steve Bannon.
    This is a dangerously volatile mix, yet Congress is too preoccupied with staying elected to realize the peril humanity faces with Donald in the Oval Office, acquiescing to Breitbart, the Alt Right, and ALEC in the process.

    now that i think about it maybe this is a more important thing to be addressing at this time from a 5 time coward draft dodging , women beater ,rapest ,racist pig DUMP 45 ? seems right should be on the top of the list . i mean what are these people crying about anyways ? its not that bad for them being black and targeted and being murdered by cops is it ? omg what is their problem ? its not the white cops fault that thy are targeting them because thy are black . geeeee what a bunch of baby right ? and yes this is the top thing that should be on any president’s list dont you think so every one ? the DUMP 45 should (as its his job ) strighten this out first and up most . when thats done then get to the little things like healthcare for America and the people .and after the not standing & kneeling and locking arms thing is fix then get to the small stuff like the little ACA and the health for the people . and results for purto rico and all the Hurricane Irma and the other hurricane’s and those victims and when the DUMP 45 clears up the national anthem then he can start working of sweating the little and small stuff like getting the world into a Nuclear war DUMP 45 you was put in the house to fix these VERY BIG THINGS LIKE STANDING FOR THE NATIONAL ANTHEM . and not to worry about all the other small things that dont matter . RIGHT PEOPLE ??? this is the reason why the brain dead DUMP 45 followers voted in office THE DONNY DUMP CLOWN SHOW right ?
