  1. Did that seem well written to anyone else? I only caught the last couple minutes

  2. THIS JUST IN: Once each side calmed down, it’s almost like they remembered war is bad for both parties involved and should be avoided at all costs.


  3. We need a deal with Iran?? WE HAD ONE!!

  4. Why does this all feel so staged?

  5. He says he wants to create a new deal….

    Mothafucka, you didn’t need to. You had a great deal before you pulled out of it…Fucking idiot.

    Edit: UK doesn’t have to listen to you, if they want to stay in the deal. They can. They’re not even backing your actions in this pathetic situation.

  6. Full video: https://youtu.be/RIhFlmXCqDE full speech here starts at 44 minutes in

  7. Transcript for those of you that want to know what he said but don’t actually want to hear him say it:

    >As long as i’m president of the united states. Iran will never be allowed to have a nuclear weapon.
    >Good morning, I’m pleased to inform you the american people should be extremely grateful and happy. No Americans were harmed in last nights attack by the Iranian regime. We suffered no casualties, all of our soldiers are safe and only minimal damage was sustained at our military bases. Our great American forces are prepared for anything.
    >Iran appears to be standing down, which is a good thing for all parties concerned and a very good thing for the world. No american or Iraqi lives were lost because of the precautions taken. The dispersal of forces and an early warning system worked that very well. I salute the incredible skill and courage of americas men and women in uniform.
    >For far too long, all the way back to 1979 to be exact, nations have tolerated Iran’s destructive and destabilizing behavior in the middle east and beyond. Those days are over. Iran has been the leading sponsor and their pursuit of nuclear weapons threatens the civilized world. We will never let that happen.
    >Last week we took decisive action to stop a ruthless terrorist from threatening american lives. At my direction the united states military eliminated the worlds top terrorist- Qasem Soleimani . As the head of the kuds force, Soleimani was personally responsible for some of the absolutely worst atrocities. He trained terrorist armies, including Hezbollah. Launching terrorist strikes against civilian targets. He fueled bloody civil wars all across the region. He viciously wounded and murdered thousands of US troops including the planting of roadside bombs that maim and dismember their victims. Soleimani directed the recent attacks on US personnel in Iraq that badly wounded 4 service members and killed 1 American and he orchestrated the violent assault on the US embassy in Baghdad. In recent days, he was planning new attacks on american targets but we stopped him. Soleimani’s hands were drenched in american and Iranian blood. He should have been terminated long ago.
    >By removing Soleimani we have sent a powerful message to terrorists: If you value your own life you will not threaten the lives of our people. As we continue to evaluate options in response to Iranian aggression the United States will immediately impose additional punishing economic sanctions on the Iranian Regime. These powerful sanctions will remain until Iran changes its behavior.
    >In recent months alone, Iran has seen ships in international waters, fired an unprovoked strike on Saudi Arabia and shot down 2 us drones. Iran’s hostilities substantially increased after the foolish Iran nuclear deal we signed in 2013 and they were given 150 billion dollars not to mention 1.8 billion in cash. Instead of saying thank you to the United States, they chanted death to america. In fact, they chanted death to america the day the agreement was signed. Then Iran went on a terror spree funded by the money from the deal. Then created hell in Yemen, Syria, Lebanon, Afghanistan and Iraq.
    >The missiles fired last night at us, and our allies, were paid for with the funds made available by the last administration. The regime also greatly tightened the reigns on their own country, even recently killing 1,500 people at the many protests that are taking place all throughout Iran. The very defective JCPOA expires shortly anyway and gives Iran a clear and quick path to Nuclear breakout. Iran must abandon its nuclear ambitions and end its support for terrorism.
    >The time has come for the UK, Germany, France, Russia and China to recognize this reality. They must now break away from the remnants of the Iran deal or JCPOA and we must all work together toward making a deal with Iran that makes the world a safer and more peaceful place. We must also make a deal that allows Iran to thrive and prosper and take advantage of it’s untapped… potential. Iran can be a great country. Peace and stability cannot prevail in the middle easy as long as Iran continues to foment violence, unrest, hatred and war. The civilized world must send a clear and unified message to the Iranian regime. Your campaign of terror, murder, mayhem, will not tolerated any longer. It will not be allowed to go forward.
    >Today, I am going to ask NATO to become much more involved in the middle east process.
    >Over the last 3 years, under my leadership, our economy is stronger than ever before and america has achieved energy independence. These historic accomplishments shades our strategic priorities. These are accomplishments that nobody thought were possible and options in the middle east became available. We are now the #1 producer of oil and natural gas in the world. We are independent and we do not need middle east oil.
    >The american military has been completely rebuilt at a cost of 2.5 trillion dollars. US armed forces are stronger than ever before. Our missiles are big, powerful, accurate, lethal and fast. Under construction are many hyper-sonic missiles. The fact that we have this great military equipment does not mean we have to use it. We do not want to use it. American strength, both military and economic, is the best deterrent.
    >3 months ago, after destroying 100% of ISIS and its territorial caliphate. We killed the savage leader of Isi Al-Baghdadi. Who is responsible for so much death including the mass beheading of Christians, Muslims and all who stood in his way. He was a monster. Al-Bahgdadi was trying to rebuild the ISIS caliphate and failed. Tens of thousands ISIS fighters have been killed or captured during my administration.
    >ISIS is a natural enemy of Iran. The destruction of ISIS is good for Iran and we should work together on this and other shared priorities.
    >Finally, to the people and leaders of Iran. We want you to have a future, and a great future, one that you deserve. One of prosperity at home in harmony with the nations of the world. The united states is ready to embrace peace with all who seek it. I want to thank you and god bless america.

  8. His trashing of the Iran nuclear deal was absolutely despicable. He ruined the chance for peace then lied about the deal to cover for his own ineptitude.

    All of this because he couldn’t stand Obama.

    The fact that the GOP continues to cape for this bullshit is disgraceful.

  9. > “the American poele shold be extremely gratefu and happy no americans were harmed.”

    Why sould they be grateful wtf? its the normality to stay safe and alive

  10. Color me extremely confused

  11. Anyone have link to full video, not showing since they have live stream embedded and it has ended.

  12. Sulejmani didn’t co√∂perate with US interests. He needed to go. Iran knew, but couldn’t afford to lose face by firing him. They made a deal with the US, and the US allowed a “strike” on US base. All in all, a good destabalizing deal between Iran and the US.
    EDIT: meant to say: de-escalating.
