Trump cannot disolve the JCPA by unilateral executive order

Trump is taking it on his own to completely destroy the faith in the US to make agreements and treaties. I don't believe that he has the right to decertify Iran's compliance on his own. He has become the worst of the extreme right and the Neocons. He is implementing their agenda in an arbitrary and impulsive way. The JCPA solved a problem. Iran is not developing nuclear weapons, however the DPRK is, and they are watching how agreements with the US work out.

On Constitutions which use the word "indivisible": An observation.

This will be a really short Essay, but I think it's a question which needs to be answered.

Has anyone else around here noticed that every time the clause "The State is Indivisible" or equivalent appears in any country's Constitution, that country has a chunk of its land and people who emphatically do NOT want to be part of it?

Coups for Corporate Profit Define Our Foreign Policy

With all the distractions it is difficult for regular folks to see the steady move toward a disastrous war with Iran. We are well on the road to upsetting the social reforms and nationalized oil resources of Venezuela (as we discussed last week). Isn't it interesting how the terrorists and our existential enemies always seem to be where there is oil. Korea fired another missile...I'm sure our response will be bellicose, despite the fact the only request they have is for us to stop military exercises around their country. This week the health insurance conflict (it's not about health care) dominated the cycle. Russiagate perks along. T-rumps cabinet cleaning has been part of the media feeding frenzy too. So the firehouse sprays and the people are too overwhelmed to see what is obvious (like our idiotic Iranian policy) and what is hidden (like the arrest of Imran Awan).

Trump preparing for war with Iran

If you liked the most recent Iraq war, you'll absolutely love war with Iran.
Make no mistake, war with Iran will be an epic disaster. A Napoleon invading Russia in 1812 level of catastrophe.
But facts and reality has never been enough to change Donald Trump's mind.

Trump has loaded his cabinet of trusted advisers with anti-Iran warhawks.
