Trump loses even most slavish European NATO fans on Iran deal


This 16 May 2018 video from the USA is called Glenn Greenwald: Is Trump An Aberration?

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

Dutch Prime Minister Rutte calls the decision by United States President Trump to withdraw from the Iran deal “crap”. Rutte also recognizes himself in the sharp words of European Union President Donald Tusk about the United States.

Tusk said at the EU summit in the Bulgarian capital Sofia that “after the recent decisions of Donald Trump you can think that you do not need enemies with friends like that“. He also said that if Europe needs help now, then it can only rely on itself.

Prime Minister Rutte agrees.

Mark Rutte is the leader of the VVD party, one of the four party Dutch right-wing government coalition with a one MP majority in parliament. The VVD is traditionally the most pro Big Business, most slavishly pro NATO, most slavishly pro NATO governments’ wars (from the African colonial wars of then fascist Portugal in the 1960s, to Korea to Vietnam to Iraq 2003 to Libya 2011, etc) party in the Netherlands. If even the VVD now disagrees with Trump’s plan for war on Iran, that shows something.

The Trump administration has formally rejected calls from France, Germany and the UK, as well as the European Union, for a carve-out from US sanctions on Iran imposed as a result of the US withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal last May: here.

Facing a deepening conflict with the United States, Berlin is massively upgrading its military capacity to enable Germany to use its armed forces to pursue its economic and geo-strategic interests around the world.

    Lola –

    In just a moment, I am going to ask you to make a donation to VoteVets. Here’s why this call to action is so important:

    Throughout my entire professional life, I served with foreign soldiers and armies – including Iranian. And in every instance, the American military’s word was always trusted. I deeply regret Donald Trump’s decision to walk away from the Iran Deal. He dishonors America and puts us and our allies at risk.

    But here is the truth: My father took Donald Trump’s place in Vietnam and was killed in action. By throwing out the Iran Deal, the sons and daughters of Americans serving today will take his children’s place in the war he’s starting.

    There has never been an election as important as the one just a few months away. And our job has got to be electing people who will stand up to Trump. And there is no one more up to the task than the progressive veterans VoteVets is supporting. So here’s the ask:

    Can I count on you to make a $3 donation to VoteVets before our end of month fundraising drive comes to a close at midnight? Your support matters. With it, we will elect progressive veterans who will stand up to Trump.

    Congress is the body that sends our young men and women to fight, and with this president in office, that means it’s never been more important that we fill its ranks with people who understand what that means.

    Thanks for supporting VoteVets in that work ahead of our critical deadline.

    All my best,

    Major General (ret.) Paul Eaton
