On Oct. 15, President Donald Trump is expected to de-certify the Iran deal brokered by former President Barack Obama months before his tenure in office was up. And despite all the outcries from the neo-con establishment that Obama and the White House was 'bowing down' to another world leader and government when the deal allowed for a removal of economic sanctions, the reality is that Iran is not a terrorist threat on the nuclear stage, but are instead being persecuted because they are an even greater threat to the monetary hegemony of the U.S. empire.
One has to wonder if President Trump is himself bowing down to the Israeli cabal by calling for Congress to re-enact economic sanctions, and notifying the Treasury Department to prepare for the locking out of Iran from the Swift system. Because ever since Iran became unfettered from their monetary shackles, the Islamic country has proven itself to be a staunch ally in the war on terror when they aided in the bringing down of ISIS, and in addition have been acting as a peaceful neighbor to their long-standing enemies over in Iraq.
More importantly on the geo-political front, Iran has for all intents and purposes moved into Russia's camp. And as we know from the history of U.S. - Soviet/Russian confrontations, Washington always strives to attack proxies vs. taking on Moscow head on.
Yet there is perhaps an additional threat to America that President Trump appears to be ignoring, and that can be seen from the early reactions by Europe who stand to lose a great deal should they be forced to follow once again in lock-step with the will of Washington in the game of economic sanctions.
As a negotiator and diplomat, President Trump has proven himself incompetent when it comes to most foreign policies, and this was proven out early in his administration when he accused Bashir Assad of using chemical weapons on his people without a shred of proof, or even the logic to realize how insane that type of attack from the government would be in light of their successes against ISIS and the so-called moderate rebels. And should Trump continue on this course of action by de-certifying the Iran nuclear accords and imposing a renewal of economic sanctions, it could end up being the final straw that breaks the camel's back because it will send a clear signal to every nation in the world that if your economy and financial systems rely upon dollars, then you are not safe from the whims of a government that is willing to do anything to protect its hegemony.
