The INSANITY of Amerikan Elite in governement... long may they rapidly suffer.

  


LOL! They are not suffering. That is why they are the "elite." :-)

This is a nice op-ed piece with the one done in support of Cuba by the same author.

The problem is not with Obama. Obama is the best President to normalize relations with Iran. The problem is with Iran. It still is in its childish "Death to America" stage. Until Iran convinces the American people it is not a terrorist nation, no American leader is going to take normalization seriously.

The Ayatollah is nothing but a psychological wall that sits in the way of peace with the west. Rouhani is trying very hard to show the people of Iran to the rest of the world. The US government needs to restrain its arrogance and paranoia towards other countries. This has to stop. No wonder many countries dislike us.

The USA must always have an enemy. It is one of the ways our ruling elite keeps the money flowing to the military/industrial interests. No matter what Iran claims unfortunately, it will ultimately make no difference. That the Iranian people and government have been so gentle in their response to our cruel, unlawful and mean-spirited sanctions should indicate to the American leadership Iran's peaceful intentions. There is an hypocrisy at work amongst the American leadership that reveals a slowly growing cancerous sociopathy which has tragically claimed many innocent lives and will, in the end, bring tragedy to all.

How could they shake hands, when daddy Netanyahu has already said this is just another delaying tactic by Iran.
American Presidents are not allowed to do anything their paymasters do not agree with. Generally their paymasters only want them to cause chaos in the world, ignite religious hatred so people are turned off and push "reforms" in all societies which erode the moral and social fibre of the world.

  


Israel costs the US a minimum of 3 billion USD every year in case you are unaware.

My president, Oblunder is able to lie for 40 uninterrupted minutes? quite a feat for a community organizer, but I am sure he could not have done it without speech writers and teleprompters.

It is more important to speak from the heart, but perhaps soulless shape shifters have none?

The spirit of Lazar Kaganovich lives on in America's "sanction" policies.

The truth is that Obomber is losing it and fast he just gets himself lost deeper and deeper in his web of lies and hypocracy. No-one even need to criticize his actions, anymore because by his actions he is criticizing himself and in the proces becoming a comic warmongering figure of deceit and lies with absolutely no respect, from anyone in short he really is not up to the job of leader.

It will be a mistake for Rouhani to trust the fascist Obama puppet.
