Tillerson fired replaced by Anti-JCPOA Iran hawk

Recommended Posts

Well Tillerson has been fired partly for his differences with Trump in that he wanted to keep the nuclear deal, Trump doesn't, so he replaced with ex-CIA head Pompeo. Pompeo is known for his very hawkish Iran views, he has even claimed that Tehran is intent on destroying America. He is also more pro-Israel than Netanyahu himself if that is even possible. Part of the reason Tillerson was fired is also because he was too critical of Putin and Russia. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/13/us/politics/trump-tillerson-pompeo.html.

wow as bad as tilllerson was, pompeo is 1000x times worse.. 

tillerson was in the middle east around 2 weeks ago.. he even went to lebanon... this probably opened up his awareness about the region a little bit.

This administration is so bad, Mattis and Tillerson almost look like sane voices compared to the rest of them crazies.

The way this administration and its cabinet are going I wouldn't be surprised if Pompeo is fired in a few months as well.

The cabinet and the White House staff look like they are playing Musical Chairs. A month doesn't go by without a Cabinet member or staff either resigning or being fired.

No consistency.

The neocons are never the ones to go, he's stuffing more and more of them in, I hear he wants to appoint Tom Cotton for some post too. Cotton, Trump/Kushner and Pompeo, that would be heaven for Israel.

Take a look at this list. Quite a few Neo-Cons on the list starting with Bannon, Gorka & Flynn.

However, the new head of the CIA (Gina Haspel) is a monster. She's a sadist who loves torturing people. She ran a Black Site Prison in Thailand during the Obama Administration and the torture stories from there are quite horrific. Expect an easing of torture restrictions for CIA agents.

I don't know much about Gorka, but Bannon even though he was an awful person, I got the impression he was not a neocon. With Flynn, he was one of the sane voices who talked about the Sunni Jihadist movement in the Syrian opposition in 2012, so I don't know if he's a neocon exactly either.

I don't think these changes are going to change anything particular, as nothing particular has changed during the past year about US policy in the West Asia region by Trump's administration.

For achieving goals, things are related to the power and the ability, more than they are related to the individuals. US has done and is doing whatever it can within its power. Trump or Obama, Tillerson or Pompeo. America can't do a damn thing ✌️.

Your list has 19 names. DeutscheWelle today said that a list like this will have 39 names.

CBS News this 13th said that Presidential aide John Entee "was escorted off" the white House grounds. The "security issue" involved is "financial crimes".

To my mind he's lining up the ducks for his third year in office (next year) when he might go off on some big foreign adventure, and make himself look like a big leader and thus get re-elected.

I was curious as to why he seemed to be going after the NKs and Iran at the same time. Usually, people prefer to pick one fight at a time. Now that he's trying to present himself as a peacemaker vis a vis NK, I think the future focus on Iran seems more likely.

A conflagration in that region may also solve some problems for Netanyahu.
