Is there any evil that this detestable Stalinist will not defend? Iran’s leaders engage in unimaginable human rights violations against Iran’s citizens, they finance terrorism in the Middle East and Latin America, they promise to eradicate Israel from the earth, and they will often chant “Death to America.”
Yet according to Bernie Sanders, it is Donald Trump who is the “schoolyard bully” when responding with strength to the threats made by Iran’s leaders against America.
Rest assured that the leaders of Iran, Russia, China, and Turkey are cheering hard for Bernie Sanders in 2020. They know that they would have a field day against this absolute blithering idiot and jihad supporter.
Pro-Jihad Bernie Sanders: Trump a ‘Schoolyard Bully’ on Iran, Breitbart, Joe B Pollak, Mary 2020, 2019:
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) slammed President Donald Trump’s approach to Iran on Monday, calling him a “schoolyard bully” and demanding, “No war with Iran!”
Sanders was commenting on a tweet by the president on Sunday, which was itself a reaction to reported threats by Iran against the United States and American allies in the region.
Trump, the schoolyard bully, is threatening to take us into another war in the Middle East. Just what we need! But it will not be Trump's or his billionaire friend's kids and grandkids who fight and die in that war. It will be working-class kids. No war with Iran! https://t.co/b32MYKtd4P

The U.S. and Iran have been enemies for 40 years, ever since Iran seized American diplomatic personnel as hostages in 1979 in the wake of Iran’s Islamic revolution. Hatred of the United States — the “Great Satan” — is a core component of the Iranian regime’s ideology, whose members and supporters regularly chant “Death to America!” at political events. In recent years, Iran helped terrorists kill U.S. troops in Iraq, and continues to use terrorist proxies to threaten Israel. It has also tried to build a nuclear weapon for decades — a process slowed, but not stopped, after the nuclear deal of 2015.
The Obama administration attempted to appease Iran, partly in the belief that the Middle East would be more stable if Iran were allowed to achieve a more dominant position in the region. But Iran continued to support terrorists, and to threaten U.S. allies. The Trump administration withdrew from the Iran deal and has imposed heavy sanctions on Iran that have damaged its economy as well as its ability to support terrorist proxy armies in the Middle East and elsewhere.
In recent weeks, the U.S. deployed the U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln carrier strike group and a bomber task force to the region in response to reported Iranian threats to American targets in the region. Members of Congress who have been briefed on the intelligence reports concerning the Iranian threat have backed the administration’s actions. At the same time, both President Trump and the Iranian regime have also said that neither side wants to have a war with the other.
U.S. Intel Warns Iran Plotting ‘Tactical Surprise’ Attacks in Gulf, The Washington Free Beacon, Adam Kredo, May 20, 2019:
Intelligence indicates that the Iranian regime is using its terror proxy groups to conduct attacks on ships operating in the Strait of Hormuz, a critical Persian Gulf shipping lane that has become the center of international tensions as Tehran seeks to foment instability in reaction to President Donald Trump’s efforts to strangle the hardline regime.
U.S. intelligence collected over the past month had indicated that Iran has been installing missiles on small vessels in the Gulf region. Tehran is relying on a large network of terror proxies and allies to attack not only commercial vessels in the region, but also U.S. military assets stationed there.
Iran has a long history of conducting terror attacks in this manner, fueling worry in the Trump administration that Tehran could carry out a large-scale attack via its terror networks. In just the past two years, Iran has been identified as being responsible for at least 143 attacks against shipping vessels in the Gulf, according to expert analyses of the ongoing tensions in the region.
