Trump melted down today as questions about his shady financial history intensify

Recent photo of Trump 

Trumplethinskin is getting rather desperate to wag the (i.e. raise the price of OIL for his Hydrocarbon 🦕👹🦖 Hellspawn owners - so they won't help throw him under the impeachment bus - while simultaneously taking the world's attention away from his rather blatant financial crimes history now being discussed here and there publicly) "evil Iran" dog.

It ain't workin' because way too many people are onto this false flag SCAM the US Government has used WAY TOO OFTEN (i.e. sinking the battleship Maine, Gulf of Tonkin, Bush fooling Saddam into invading Kuwait in 1991, 911, Shrub Iraq "WMD" lie, etc. SEE: 😈 One EVIL Trick Pony).

This comment I read today says it all:

Why should Iran talk to the US government? It was the Trump administration - at the behest and request of the Israelis and their Saudi brethren - that broke the Iran nuclear deal, not the other way around. And the wide consensus of the entire civilized world is that Iran did act honorably and did uphold its share of the deal. No doubt about this. None whatsoever.  Donald Trump's foreign policy is scalp-deep in warmongering guilt, and sinking lower with each passing day. The only excuse Donald Trump has is that Hillary Clinton's administration would have done exactly the same, which is no excuse at all.

You know, your signature on a piece of binding international treaty - even when the signature is that of the preceding president - is not merely an autograph memorabilia. It is a serious, legally binding commitment which ties the entire nation into a very serious, meaningful set of interlocking, mutually reciprocal obligations with the contractual counterparty. An international contract actually obligates the signatory to act in a good-faith manner and to prevent deliberate sabotaging of the contract.  If the word of honor of the great nations were as easily self-violated as the word of honor of dishonest individuals, this planet would be an uninhabitable horror. Which, essentially, is what it is now rapidly becoming.

A horrendous, irreparable damage - and extraordinarily dangerous one - has been done by Donald Trump's wanton and entirely unjustified retreat from the diplomatic deal with Iran. I think I speak for many people worldwide when I say that this may go down as the single worst diplomatic cataclysm in the entire American history replete with blunders, false flags and war provocations of all kinds -  if not the history of the world. After all, from this moment on, the good faith and credit (and the word of honor) of American government ain't worth a pitcher of warm spit.

The only thing that makes Mother Earth habitable is the trust among humans. Even when the trust is involuntary, even when it runs counter to emotions and all reason, even when it is imposed between (presumably honorable) enemies, some trust must persist for our species to survive. Donald Trump just smashed that trust to smithereens.

I have no recommendations for the sitting American government. What, precisely, do you suggest to someone who just declared the war on the entire humanity?

Indeed. My only quibble with this fellow, who is probably an intelligent and perceptive Iranian, and obviously a caring, responsible human being, is the timing of when, precisely, the US Government declared war on ALL humanity.

I think it's been a while.
