    So when Trump overrides General Mattis, and the scientists and experts from France, Britain, Russia, China, and Germany in announcing his withdrawal from the Iran Nuclear Agreement, just remember how smart he says he is. He understands "uranium". Trust him.

    Schmidt, I just wonder what Europe, China and Russia will do, especially related to trade. I think China nor Russia will change or stop their trade. The problem is the EU, will they listen to the US or bypass their trade to deliver their goods via an other country which can trade with Iran. Such was done when I dealt with Iran over there. The goods were on paper sold to Egypt and then delivered to Iran.

    The only logical explanation for Trump’s decision to withdraw from the agreement on Iran is that he is being blackmailed by the Russian government – and it has to be something more significant than the “pee pee” tapes.

    The other day, the Daily Kos published an article that outlines the REAL reason for the withdrawal - our withdrawal will help Russia tremendously. Although I could summarize if for you, it’s worthwhile to read the entire article:

    In 1990, Russia had the world’s 2nd largest economy, right behind the United States. Today, Russia is not even in the top 10:

    As the article above points out, though, the lack of economic diversity in Russia’s economy will continue to hamper the country’s economy, even with the help of Putin’s orange-haired buddy.

    Maybe. But now that Israel is taking on Iran, the USA has to have their back. All the weaponry Israel has came from the USA. Iron dome, fighter jets, and all the extras. Iran might choose to do business with Russia, in which case Israel vs Iran will be a proxy war? maybe.

    Anyone see the news clip last night of Israel terrorism? Dropping teargas from drones? It's like open season on Palestinians.
