Biden has made reviving the 2015 nuclear deal a top priority, but indirect talks to restore the pact have so far failed to produce an agreement.

I love how US is trying its absolute hardest to get itself in three major global conflicts at the same time. If there’s a conflict with Iran, that will necessarily involve Saudi Arabia. This means that any oil exports from the region will be basically gone. I wonder what that would do to what’s left of western economy. And then of course there’s US actively provoking China over Taiwan.

All part of the protocols of the learned elders. IYKYK. China, Russia, and Iran and only the biggest players of the BRICS nations. Geopolitics. Russia invading ukraine ties directly into NATO stockpiling troops and ammo along the caucus’ for the past 6 years. The plan by global elites right now is to destabilize all major societies across the globe, initiate as many unofficial global conflicts as they can, mainly around the middle east and geared towards israel’s “enemies” specifically, and keep reintroducing new pandemics every year with new sketchy vaccinations for each one. They’re actually experimental gene therapy and not technically what’s classified as a vaccine. These are all broad and each topic could be broken down for hours, but in a nutshell these are huge pieces of the PROTOCOLS.

Iran is not developing any nuclear weapons, and the US is too weak for another war. So nothing but empty blabber.

Iran may state so officially, but the country’s former nuclear chief Fereydoun Abbasi-Davani admitted that the aim was to create a nuclear weapon. The country’s defence minister Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was assassinated in 2020 by Mossad because he was accused of being “the mastermind of the nuclear weapons programme” by Israel. Abbasi-Davani stated that his importance was correct, and there is a “nuclear system” with military capabilities: Iran has scientific research activities and uranium enrichment facilities which alone can be used for peaceful purposes, but with a missile programme can be used to create the infrastructure necessary for nuclear weapons.

“Although our stance on nuclear weapons based on the supreme leader’s explicit fatwa regarding nuclear weapons being haram [forbidden by Islamic law] is quite clear, Fakhrizadeh created this system and his concern wasn’t just the defence of our own country,” Abbasi-Davani said in the interview.

Good that you bring up the Israeli occupation. Your quote already makes it clear that its a terrorist entity which murders scientists (civilians). And its the only country in the region which has nuclear weapons. That is much more worrying than Iran.

Absolutely. Reading how much they’ve done in the region since the late 1940’s is staggering. They truly have it set up where they play the victim as this helpless baby surrounded by middle eastern terrorists but their mossad’s motto says enough. Then all their elites who have super villain level connections literally own and control the U.S. which is just their personal army.

The worry about Iran and nuclear weapons extends far beyond Israel. The problem is that if Iran gets them, Saudi Arabia and Iran’s other regional adversaries will want to develop nuclear weapons. Then you get more nuclear proliferation, which isn’t good for anyone.

Killing scientists involved in the nuclear program is kind of a grey area in terms of labels. They’re working on a nuclear program that can quickly be turned to military purposes, and they knew what they signed up for. In that sense, they’re every bit as military as the members of the Manhattan Project, and I have no doubt that they would be seen as fair game.

No, nor am I advocating for Israel to assassinate Iranian nuclear scientists. But I think it’s inaccurate to label attacks on essentially military targets as being terrorism.

Except that it is terrorism. Israel is not formally at war with Iran, and what it’s doing is conducting state terrorism in Iran.

Israel is a terrorist state to be sure, and there are books and books documenting their war crimes and violations of int’l law and geneva accord. You just don’t hear anything about it in mainstream news in the west because, take a few guesses why.

Ok, they were always weak as paper tiger, and they lost all wars, but they still started wars so that’s why I am asking you, why are they weaker now? What stops them to start another war?

They at least are very experienced on wars and all their existence is about wars.

Against Iran they wont have any chance. I will just mention the missile strike that Iran carried out in January 2020 against a US military base in Iraq. Iran gave a warning several hours ahead, so all troops were already in shelters at the time. Nevertheless, over 100 soldiers were wounded, some with severe concussions. Most importantly, the United States didnt dare to retaliate in any way.

That was when Donald Trump killed their general on 3 January 2020.

Then they bombed on 7 January 2020. (if I’m not wrong)

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/jan/08/suleimani-assassination-two-us-airbases-in-iraq-hit-by-missiles-in-retaliation

“[…] Iraq, the UK, Australia, Canada and the US said none of their personnel had been killed or injured and both Donald Trump and the Iranian foreign minister, Javad Zarif, appeared to signal they did not wish the situation to escalate further. […]”

But

“[…] Iranian officials told state media, without presenting evidence, that at least 80 US personnel had been killed or injured in the strikes and that the toll was being hidden from the public. […]”

Notice the “without presenting evidence”. So I am still asking, how weak USA is? They killed a general and Iran just “bombed” to calm down their own people. That was what happened.

I follow news, another thing is I can miss some news. What you sent me is talking about “39 Purple Hearts for soldiers injured”, I don’t understand what you mean with that.

@guojing@lemmy.ml

These soldiers had to be evacuated, and thus were out of service for a significant time (maybe even permanently).

Most of the 39 soldiers suffered traumatic brain injuries in the attack

“The person I was prior to a traumatic brain injury, he’s gone,” Kvasager told CBS News. “There’s parts that remain. The pieces are all still there, just — yeah, he’s not coming back.”

The U.S. air assault started on January 17, 1991 and it lasted for 42 days. On February 23 President H.W. Bush ordered the U.S. ground assault to begin. The invasion took place with much needless killing of Iraqi military personnel. Only about 150 American military personnel died compared to about 200,000 Iraqis. Some of the Iraqis were mercilessly killed on the Highway of Death and about 400 tons of depleted uranium were left in that nation by the U.S. (2,3)

The total number of Iraqi deaths that are a result of our current Iraq against Iraq War is 654,000, of which 600,000 are attributed to acts of violence, according to Johns Hopkins researchers. (1,2)

And U.S. still have their bases on Iraq territory, it’s normal that for Iraq, bombing their own territory is easy. I think you can’t compare, if the U.S. orders a direct attack they can do a lot of damage too. They aren’t that weak and neither going to leave Iraq territory.

I don’t think you could choose a better mean phrase to reply me. I got confused, I am not a war fanatic, I have my own stuff going on. I read news and I do my best. Iran is not Iraq of course, I am not always 100% on the topic and I do mistakes, we were talking about Iran yeah, so I missed this.

What I am sure is, U.S. could start a war with Iran, but with some preparation. It’s like you are missing U.S. is operating on the enemy territory.

Those attacks Iran did was easier as it’s in their own country. U.S. will need to move all his army and vehicles and prepare a strong defense to combat them.

But as you see, Iran can’t protect their General from a U.S. drone.

So be less mean, if you see I don’t understand, or I don’t say things correctly you can correct and teach me, that’s why I am here, to debate, and you can change my mind, so I want to debate to really know if I am wrong or not (that’s why I started asking you why is U.S. too weak for another war).

I dont understand what your problem is. If you make statements about other countries, you ahould at least know the basics, like their names or geographic locations. Its good if you want to learn, but thats not what your previous comment sounded like.

About weakness of the US military, the most obvious example was last years humiliating defeat in Afghanistan (basically Vietnam 2.0). That was after 20 years of building up their proxy army, and fighting against people armed with little more than AKs and IEDs.

Another problem is with the development of new weapon systems. The F35 is getting more expensive by the day, and is still not combat ready. Development of hypersonic missiles seems to make very little progress. These are already used in combat by Russia. And in general, a lot of the equipment is still from the cold war era and quite outdated (Abrams tank for example).

I read they are still spending a lot of money on army.

About Afghanistan, I think their objective was completed, they went there not to protect, just to create conflict. They created the Taliban and now Taliban are under control of Afghanistan. They never wanted to save people, they are one of those who killed those innocent people. As this documentary explains, https://yewtu.be/watch?v=84P4dzow1Bw .

Wars are made basically to get resources from other countries. They got cheap oil, and they get a lot of resources from countries very cheap, that’s their main objective.

EDIT: I know their names and where they are placed, and I try to read news about what’s happening there. I just had other things in my head, as I told you… I’m not that expert, but at least I try to read about what’s happening there. You are saying U.S. is too weak as always but U.S. has been on wars ALWAYS so… why can’t they get into another war? If they aren’t in war already is because they have no interest at least right now, they have other plans.
