Iran Pulls Out: The Start of Big Things to Come

Say what you like 'bout 'em, they sure have some nerve, 
Chucking the treaty with Iranian verve, 
Allowing the Donald to squawk "I told you so!" 
And claim once again they want not nukes for show, 
And promise big muscle to do all he's able, 
All options like golf clubs laid out on the table. 

Yet though Don is saying, "C'mon: make my day," 
Iran is replying it wants things its way, 
And woe is the signatory who doesn't help out, 
'Cause they'll drop the deal like a rank Brussel sprout, 
So the sigs' had better make up for the Yanks, 
Lest Iran tire of well-enforced sanc's. 

Which sets the scene for Game of the Loyal, 
Where allies' intentions are set to fast-broil, 
And the other big powers must measure their strat', 
And with the beards deal and play tit-for-tat 
Against Pompous Mike who will need to save face, 
And send in the Air Force or start an arms race. 

Yes, you sniff it plain in the high strastosphere, 
A new crisis brewing from Shanghai to here, 
With the Russians fed up and China fed full, 
And Europeans tired of more Yankee bull, 
The Pentagon looking for another grotesque, 
Lest some poor general needs polish oak desk. 

Thank goodness for the sure hands of Don and his men, 
Guys who can put Humpty together again; 
Mike pushing the long-beards, Jared MBS, 
Bolton pushing all with no shred of BS, 
"With God (and some drones and a decent cash flow), 
All things are possible," says Don at Lago.

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyhru is about to be indited for corruption. He is trying to change the Israeli System to stop them. Being in the middle of a war would help him squash or edit Israeli democracy depending on interpretation,
