Trump wants the unachievable. He wants a new nuclear deal and not to go to war with Iran. He needs to make the grand gesture soon, like firing John Bolton, but it may not be enough.
Spreading the lie that Iran wants nuclear weapons is very important to them, and Bolton just repeated the lie again at the Christians United for Israel (CUFI) conference.
The key takeaway from the events that did – and more importantly did NOT – happen between the United States, Iran and Venezuela over the past three months is that the senior generals in the Pentagon, especially in the US Army – resisted the neocon super-hawks led by Bolton and his allies.
The president called off airstrikes against Iran, and we have the Kentucky senator and Tucker Carlson to thank.
