President Donald Trump is reportedly getting frustrated with his aides who are growing more hawkish toward Iran after “sabotage attacks” hit Saudi oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman earlier this week.
Iran has been fingered as the culprit for the attacks by unnamed U.S. intelligence officials and the corporate fake news media without any evidence being offered to the public.
The pretense has been set for the U.S. to get into another regime change war in Iran, but Trump still remains hesitant despite hawkish officials such as national security advisor John Bolton pushing for conflict.
Trump is using the Swiss as an intermediary in an attempt to alleviate tensions with Iran. He is meeting with the President of the Swiss Confederation, Ueli Maurer, today in the White House, and the administration confirmed that diplomacy is in fact on the agenda.
The White House confirmed in a statement that the leaders would be discussing “matters such as Switzerland’s role in facilitating diplomatic relations and other international issues.”
Trump reportedly has given the Swiss a number to pass along to the Iranians that could facilitate conversation that could put an end the drive to war.
“I’d like to see them call me,” Trump said of the Iranians last week.
However, the damage may have already been done by Bolton and others in the administration who have damaged relations, jeopardized deal-making opportunities, and have brought Iran and the U.S. closer to war than ever before.
Hesamoddin Ashena, a senior adviser to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, wrote the following to Trump in a Twitter post on Tuesday:
@realDonaldTrump : You wanted a better deal with Iran. Looks like you are going to get a war instead. That’s what happens when you listen to the mustache. Good luck in 2020!

“While we have renounced any escalation in the region, I would assure you that Iranian armed forces are fully ready for any eventuality in the region, so they should not try to test the determination of Iran to confront any escalation in the region,” said Hamid Baeidinejad, a Rouhani aide who serves as Iran’s ambassador to the United Kingdom.
Iran’s Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who is the Islamic Republic’s final decision maker, is singing a different tune than his underlings though.
“This is not a military confrontation, because no war is going to happen. Neither we nor they are seeking war, they know that it is not to their benefit,” he declared on Iranian state TV.
Democrats are already posturing as the peace party, opposing an Iran War that they anticipate would be a disaster similar to what happened in Iraq.
“This is chicken hawks trying to drag us into a war with Iran just like they did 15 years ago in Iraq,” Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA) said.
“Let me say that we have to avoid any war with Iran,” Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said, according to a Congressional aide.
“It’s time to end the forever wars,” South Bend, IN Mayor and 2020 presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg wrote in a Twitter post. “But in this White House, some of the same people who got us into Iraq now seem ready to stoke a new conflict. It’s another reason Congress must reassert its war powers.”
President Trump’s maneuvering will have to be at peak performance if he wishes to avoid an Iran War that would likely be even more costly and deadly than former president George W. Bush’s Iraq War, which Trump has frequently called one of the worst decisions in U.S. history.

Tommy Tuberville Says “We Can’t Worry About China Right Now”
Even though they allowed the disease to spread.
Former football coach and Alabama US Senate candidate Tommy Tuberville said that “we can’t worry about China right now” in a radio appearance with Talk 99.5’s “Matt and Aunie Show on Thursday.
When asked by hosts about the implications of the global coronavirus epidemic on the United States’ relationship with China, Tuberville said, “Well, we can’t worry about China right now. We’ve gotta worry about Alabama and this country.”
Tuberville is currently running to represent Alabama in the United States Senate, although he’s been registered as a Florida voter in the past.
His comments on China policy will leave many Americans concerned with the nation’s role in the coronavirus epidemic unsatisfied. Certainly, containing the epidemic in this country is the priority, but a wide range of conservatives and China hawks have already begun to discuss the need to fundamentally reevaluate the United States’ relationship with China. The damage already inflicted upon American society and the global economy does present a pressing case that such a question is in fact urgent.
Tuberville is running for Senator, not Governor. He could be forgiven if he was running for an office not entrusted with high-level foreign policy responsibilities, but Senators in the coming months and years will be entrusted with developing China policy that recognizes the authoritarian communist nation’s role in allowing and covering up the global coronavirus epidemic.
Contrasting in stark fashion, Tuberville’s opponent for the Republican nomination for US Senate in Alabama, Jeff Sessions, has called for a congressional select committee to investigate China’s role in covering up the dangers posed to the world by the coronavirus, the virus’ origin in Wuhan, and potentially lying about the casualties incurred as a result of the disease in China.
I am calling today for Congress to immediately establish a Select Committee on China to lead the investigation. This Select Committee should be given the authority to wield the full investigative powers, including the power to compel witnesses, of the United States Congress.

If Alabama voters want a Republican Senator who is going to be tough on China, it doesn’t look like Tommy Tuberville is up to task.
