Why people hate Trump: Iran edition
The next step should be to shut Iran out of the SWIFT system. Following that, give Iran an ultimatum: end all ballistic missile and nuclear development programs, and end their wars and proxy wars in Morocco, Syria, Iraq, and Yemen. Close the weapons plants in Syria. Stop financing Hezbollah and Hamas. And end any additional Iranian imperialism and support for terrorist groups. Give them a reasonable amount of time, but make it the minimum. In the case of any non-compliance, obliterate the oil and gas terminals at Kharg, and remind them that Tehran will be next.
Of course, it goes without saying that elitist "experts," kumbayah progressives, radical leftists, and post- modern libertarians ("libertarians" who virtue-signal by allying themselves with the left) are upset. Donald Trump has done the unthinkable -- he's actually kept another campaign promise, and on top of that he's resisting a bad player as if we are the good guys! So of course they hate him.
There's no reason at all to tolerate a regime such as the Iranian one. It's totalitarian, expansionist, violent, and weak. Now is the time to kick them while they are down. Great work, Mr. President!
Thanks for your comment, Maya.
