On Iran, Trump Follows Iraq War Neocons

The Real News Network has the interview On Iran, Trump Follows Iraq War Neocons.

In sabotaging the Iran nuclear deal, President Trump is listening to — and following the playbook of — the neocons behind the Iraq war, says Col. Lawrence Wilkerson.

There are several dangers to the USA that are mentioned in this interview. One that I have been harping on lately is that if we continue to use economic sanctions as a weapon, the role of the dollar as a world reserve currency will eventually go away. The rest of the world will find ways to conduct commerce without relying on the US dollar. Our domestic policy choices depend on the status of our fiat currency. If there start to become things that we cannot buy with the US dollar, then our freedom to deficit spend without limit will go away.

Getting in bed with Saudi Arabian terrorists so we can get rid of regimes we don’t like should be frightening enough to everybody that I shouldn’t need to say anymore.
