No Conditions for Rouhani meetup? Think again sez Trump (lying as usual)

so are Pompeo and Mnunchin part of the Fake News???


Trump denies reports he's willing to meet with Iran with 'no conditions'

President Trump on Sunday said it's incorrect to report that he's willing to meet with Iran with "no conditions," contradicting what multiple top administration officials have said in recent days.

"The Fake News is saying that I am willing to meet with Iran, 'No Conditions.' That is an incorrect statement (as usual!)," Trump tweeted without elaborating further.

then he should fire these two stooges...
Earlier this week, Pompeo and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin both reiterated to reporters that Trump was willing to sit down with Rouhani with no conditions.

"The president has made very clear he is prepared to meet with no preconditions," Pompeo told reporters during a press conference alongside Mnuchin when asked about a possible meeting in New York.

And Mnuchin on Thursday said that Trump "has said he would sit down with Rouhani with no conditions," with the caveat that there were no plans to do so yet.

I think the leaders of Iran maybe meeting with a few uninvited US missiles if Iran is proven to be behind that Saudi oil refinery attack...

I don't see why Iran would provoke Israel, Saudi Arabia, or the US when they are all three itching for a fight.

"I don't see why Iran would provoke Israel, Saudi Arabia, or the US when they are all three itching for a fight."

For the same reasons Iran has planted explosives on oil freighters and hijacked another. It's a complicated situation and there are plenty of political anaylists and pundits who will give a number of reasons. An abbreviated version (IMO) are the sanctions placed on Iran after Trump pulled the US out of the agreement. The sanctions are harming the country badly. People aren't starving but it's still pretty bad (inflation, shortages etc.). The Iranian government is now playing a dangerous game to get the sanctions lifted by disrupting the flow of oil through the gulf. From what I have researched the Iranian government feels they can pull these acts off and just deny them. I believe they feel that no country wants to start or go to war in this volatile region. Therefore if they can cause trouble (without retribution) they have a chance to have the sanctions removed. They are banking on peace and the removal of sanctions over risk of a full scale war in the gulf. Basically appease them and they will stop causing trouble. Like I said earlier it's a dangerous game. It's beyond me why the Iranians didn't just wait until the 2020 election in the hope Trump is voted out.

Please keep in mind the above paragraph is abbreviated and there is so much more to this story books have been, can be and will be written. I didn't mention the ongoing feud between Saudi Arabia and Iran or the war in Yemen. Lots going on there, way too much to post here.

C & P is an honorable time-tested means of conveying or perhaps re-conveying a thought that might otherwise go unnoticed. The time and effort put into original thought might be best spent on Facebook, Twitter or some other forum with more than a dozen or so posters.drink smiley

Yes, it was originally a response to a question I had and he nicely responded, which I greatly appreciate. There are some good points in the post and I don't see anything at all wrong with cutting and pasting it elsewhere when it is appropriate.
