“The threat of nuclear war”: Iran pushed Trump with a choice


After application Iran retaliation missile strike at US facilities in Iraq, for murder Americans of the Iranian general in Baghdad, in Russia started talking about a possible escalation of the conflict between Washington and Tehran. Some Russian experts and parliamentarians have already expressed their opinion on this matter.


For example, according to international journalist and political scientist Fyodor Lukyanov, Tehran’s missile attack put U.S. Republican President Donald Trump in front of a difficult choice. It must be recalled that in November 2020, the next presidential election should be held in the United States, and the local Democratic Party, opposing Trump, is trying to limit its capabilities.

Iran’s response to the elimination of Kassem Suleimani - a strike on two bases in Iraq, where there are American troops, puts the region on the brink of a big war

- wrote Lukyanov in the Telegram channel "Russia in the global policy».

Tehran acted carefully - the goal was clearly demonstrative, symbolic, and not the desire to inflict real damage. However, Trump is faced with a choice - to limit himself to the same ritual actions and battle cries or to raise the degree of retaliation. This is an extremely slippery path, when less and less depends on the will of a politician.

- Specified the chief editor of the journal "Russia in global politics."

Trump in itself is not a warrior at all, just as Obama was not a warrior. But both can be in the same position, a lorry who climbed into the body, where its own rules. Being the head of a hegemonic country, with traditions of aggressively asserting its own interests, it’s almost impossible to stay out of the war

- explained Lukyanov.

In turn, according to the first deputy head of the international committee of the Federation Council, Senator from the Jewish Autonomous Region Vladimir Dzhabarov, mutual attacks by the United States and Iran could lead to the outbreak of armed conflict and even nuclear war.

Mutual strikes by the US and Iran could lead to a full-scale war in the region. If Washington realizes that it cannot achieve the goal, there is a danger of a nuclear war

- stressed Jabarov in an interview RIA News.

Dzhabarov believes that it is urgent to convene the UN Security Council (SB) in order to prevent a further increase in tension in the region.

    And the US air defense is rubbish. About the downed missiles is not said at all. Iran GOOD FELLOWS! Not afraid, they hit themselves. The United States is not ready for war now; there are few forces. For a strike by the United States, Iran, for sure, will respond with an even stronger blow, there are enough missiles. And Trump has an election. And coffins are not part of his election campaign. The US needs to negotiate or there will be a big war!

      To bring down something, it is necessary that something flies.

    Iran pushed Trump with a blow

    Yes, there is no choice and no one made it. The Iranians simply responded to the threats that emanate from minke whales.

    The Iranians will open the gates of hell, declare the mother of all wars, and incinerate T-Aviv and all American bases in the region in a few minutes. Well, as usual.

    “The threat of nuclear war”: Iran pushed Trump with a choice

    -Yes, what choice is there ... -Maybe, Trump is not going to choose ...
    - And how such a "choice" ... - just old Trump, avoiding impeachment, will somehow make it to the end of his presidency and go to an "honorary retirement" ... - And then let another president settle the whole situation that was created in the political and economic world ...
    - Personally, I am almost sure that if within a month the USA ... - even on its own; at least by the hands of any NATO country .., most likely, Britain or "Macron's France", which has become more active (and France is not the first time to bomb - at least Iraq, at least Libya - it has "rich experience" in this matter); but even though with the hands of Israel (which simply dreams of bombing Iran's air defenses with "his S-300" and bombing Iran's nuclear center again) ... then ... then ... then ... then Trump really got ready to retire and not will run more as a candidate ...
    - And if Trump nevertheless strikes Iran ... then it becomes clear that Trump has begun to use his next prepared trick for his new presidential elections, and he just needs to "rally all of America" ​​under "his banners" (which is still so far he does not want to unite under these "banners" of his), in order to get a solid number of votes later ...

      - i.e. In your opinion, does the American voter vote for that candidate for the US President who unleashes or promises to start a war with any country that will entail an increase in the tax burden on ordinary Americans?
      Of course, I never loved Americans, but I never considered them fools ...

      ... with the hands of Israel (which simply dreams of bombing Iran's air defenses with "its S-300" and bombing Iran's nuclear center again) ...

      - The purest technical error ...
      - The interpretation itself - "bombing Iran's air defenses with" its S-300 "and again bombing the Iranian nuclear center" confirms this ...
      Otherwise, it would have been stated ... most likely, like this: "bomb the air defense (with its S-300) and the Iranian nuclear center" ...
      - And it is given: "... dreams of bombing Iran's air defense with" his S-300 "and again bombing the Iranian nuclear center" ... instead of "and again the Iraqi nuclear center" ...
      - And the hedgehog is clear that this is a tech. error...

      - Personally, I apologize to everyone for such my "mistakes and lapses" ... - It's just that sometimes (quite often) I have to write comments while driving in a car, during stops, of course (the time is low) ... -And the like mistakes are quite possible ... now ... and in the future ... -Of course - this is not an excuse ... but like this ...

        Damn it ... Have you ever heard of the "Rose of the Winds"?
        What will happen in a nuclear explosion of such a Center, located relatively close to the Russian Federation, and where will the radioactive cloud go?
        I read from L. Garda ("The Strategy of Indirect Actions") that the Soviet leadership considered the use of tactical nuclear weapons against Israeli Jews during one of the Arab-Israeli wars, but it abandoned this idea precisely because of the unpredictability of the environmental consequences for the Soviet Transcaucasia (the fate of Arabs and Israeli Jews was not even considered) ...
        Unlike the Iraqi Nuclear Center, located on the surface, Iranian is underground in the folds of rock ....

          When, dear commbatant, "ordinary non-humans" ("Satanists", "globalists", "world behind the scenes", "reptilians", etc.) thought about people? Maybe, blowing up Hiroshima and Nagasaki, they thought about the "wind rose"? Watering the forests of Vietnam with defoliants, taking care of the soldiers of the US Army? Undermining the atomic charge near Chernobyl, did you think about the inhabitants of the Ukrainian SSR, BSSR and Europe? While carrying out an underwater nuclear explosion off the coast of Japan, thought about the spread of radiation from Fukushima? They are (in a good sense of the word) and they don't care about people's problems.

      Again you with your "wise comments"! You seem to be a woman (judging by your name), and most likely you have household chores ... You better use the energy and passion with which you write for good deeds, as a true Christian! Perhaps you remember your attack on the soldier who shot his tormentors? Do you remember what I answered then? And my answer is this: STOP COMMENTING EVERYTHING AND ALL IN A ROW! He is a victim and will be acquitted! How everything turned out later in this matter, I think you already know ... Having convinced yourself that you are a major specialist in scientific, military, cultural, political, economic, and all other fields, you scribble comments, while relying solely on your own conclusions! In the latter - Trump, elections, NATO, France, Libya, Israel, but not a word in the direction of the murderers of plane passengers, the world's freak, sponsor of modern terrorism and a great friend of Russia - Iran! You are probably baptized to everything ... And you are not ashamed ?!

    That the plane was deliberately shot down by the Persians was no secret to me! They, like their Soviet-Russian friends, give a "dry refusal" at the beginning of any incident, but then, nevertheless realizing that there is a video of the plane crash, they admitted their guilt! Of course, if it weren't for this video, they would be silent like fish! Now, why I used the phrase "Was deliberately shot down": At ALL airports in the WHOLE world, there are special corridors along which ALL take-offs and landings are made. The plane, having taken off from the runway, does not fly anywhere, but follows a strictly established route. The same goes for landing. The Ukrainian Boeing also took off along the strictly indicated route along which all the planes took off before it, and, accordingly, flew near some damned military-secret facility (if there is one nearby at all), but everyone who takes off from the airport flies by Tehran! So why didn't they shoot down anyone? If you believe the statistics, the frequency of takeoffs at the Tehran airport is off the charts, then why was no other plane taken as an enemy object ?! After all, they all take off along the same trajectory ?! That is why I declare that the Persians committed another crime, and again on purpose! And in the comments, complete nonsense about missiles, air defense, Trump, elections, etc. And about human grief (sort of like believers), not a word ...
