In case anyone wants VERY THOROUGH information about the “Iran Nuclear Deal” (the JCPOA), you might click this link and read all or some of the 64-page booklet produced by the Arms Control Association, an expert organization. Or you might want to save it for future reference. We need to educate the public and Congress in order to prevent Trump from actually starting the war against Iran that he is eager to provoke. https://www.armscontrol.org/sites/default/files/files/Reports/ACA_Iran-BB_2015%20Aug6_FINAL.pdf      

URGENT!!! Demand that Congress PREVENT Trump’s war against Iran.

May 17, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

Trump keeps threatening war against two of the world’s largest oil-producing nations:  Venezuela and Iran. In each case, WE MUST DEMAND THAT CONGRESS TAKE STRONG ACTIONS TO PREVENT Trump’s reckless, violent actions, which are illegal under international law. Other blog posts deal with Venezuela.  Here is information about Iran. Trump has been LYING about Iran and DELIBERATELY ESCALATING TENSIONS in order to PROVOKE WAR. Sign this petition (starting on May 16, 2019) to the top Democrats in the House (Pelosi) and Senate (Schumer) to tell them to PREVENT Trump’s war against Iran:  https://act.winwithoutwar.org/act/pelosi_schumer_stop_war_with_iran?source=em20190516&t=4&akid=3577%2E763336%2Eg_4_Km Sign this petition urging several members of […]

U.S.’s “regime change” efforts have been disastrous.

April 26, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

The U.S. has OVERTHROWN many governments — including many democracies. Sometimes the U.S. claims we are protecting “human rights” or restoring “democracy.” But the truth is almost always the opposite. See examples at the “Peace” and “International Affairs” parts of this blog, www.parallaxperspectives.org   An April 22, 2019, article on www.commondreams.org exposed the U.S.’s horrible track record in the context of the Trump regime’s attempt to overthrow Venezuela’s elected president.  READ THE ARTICLE AT THIS LINK. In the article see this photo of a poster attached to Venezuela’s embassy in Washington DC:            

PREVENT Trump from starting a stupid, counter-productive war against Iran.

April 23, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

If you disagree with somebody, the proper way to resolve the conflict is to TALK and use DIPLOMACY and perhaps use a MEDIATOR. The U.S. government sometimes — and especially Trump nowadays — chooses military violence instead. That only backfires. The U.S. keeps bogging itself down in unwinnable wars in many places. These wars waste our tax dollars, which we should be spending for useful purposes. These wars kill and injure many people in other countries. These wars turn world opinion against us. These wars subvert human rights and constitutional rights.   Trump has been trying to start a war […]

Act Now: Tell Congress to Impeach Bolton

April 12, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

The excellent non-profit organization “Win Without War” (www.winwithoutwar.org) promotes bold and principled information and efforts for peace. On April 11, 2019, they started urging people to impeach John Bolton for several reasons. See this information and a link to tell Congress to impeach Bolton: This week marks John “Bomb ‘Em” Bolton’s one year anniversary as White House National Security Adviser. And in just a year, ultra-hawk Bolton has destroyed multiple, vital international treaties, and is dragging us inches from two wars of choice with Venezuela and Iran. But John Bolton is not a permanent fixture. In fact, he is impeachable. […]

Trump will start a war against Iran UNLESS we STOP him!

February 4, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

Trump has been laying out the steps for starting a war against Iran: He has  been lying about Iran. He pulled out from the Iran nuclear deal (JCPOA), which had been working well. He hired John Bolton to be his National Security Advisor.  For many years Bolton has vigorously urged war against Iran. He hired John Pompeo, an anti-Iran hawk, to be his Secretary of State. He ordered the Pentagon to develop plans for a war against Iran. He is subservient to Israel and Saudi Arabia, both of which want a war against Iran. Congress has failed to take strong […]

PREVENT Trump from attacking Iran.

January 21, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

During his presidential campaign and ever since his inauguration, Trump has told malicious lies and expressed hatred toward Iran.  He has been threatening war.   Trump appointed as his National Security Advisor John Bolton, the extremely poorly informed hate-monger who has a very long history of extreme animosity toward Iran. On April 1, 2018, I posted to this blog an article about Bolton’s horribly cruel and wrong views.  See this blog post:  http://parallaxperspectives.org/john-bolton-will-push-trump-into-wars-and-more-violent-foreign-policy Here is more information about Bolton’s extreme views:  https://www.thenation.com/article/apocalypse-soon-john-bolton-set-to-replace-hr-mcmaster-as-national-security-adviser/?utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Weekly%2003232018&utm_term=weekly   In April 2018 I compiled this list of four articles about John Bolton: “John Bolton is a […]

Trump + Pompeo plan to overthrow Iran’s government

December 20, 2018 GlenAnderson 0

Trump is hell-bent to overthrow Iran’s government for several reasons. Trump hired John Bolton and Mike Pompeo for very high level positions in his administration.  Both are extremely aggressive opponents of Iran and opponents of honest diplomacy in general. Trump is utterly subservient to two nations that have long wanted to attack Iran:  Israel and Saudi Arabia. This article explains clearly what Trump is trying to do:  https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2018/11/5/1809961/-What-does-Secretary-of-State-Pompeo-mean-by-restore-democracy-in-Iran?detail=emaildksp This smart article provides several reasons to OPPOSE Trump’s pending war against Iran:  https://fpif.org/a-vital-primer-on-the-push-for-war-in-iran/ Here is another article with thoughtful insights into Iran and world politics:  https://popularresistance.org/europe-and-the-us-clash-over-washingtons-economic-war-on-iran/ The older information I report […]

Sign petition now. Trump supports Saudi Arabia’s cruelty and its passion for a war against Iran.

October 21, 2018 GlenAnderson 0

Trump has denied having business dealings with Saudi Arabia, but he really does have significant business dealings with them. He has been very subservient to Saudi Arabia’s interests and has curried favor with that nation’s cruel despotic leaders. Saudi Arabia (which is Sunni) has been strongly opposing Iran (which is largely Shia), and they are fighting proxy wars in Yemen and elsewhere.  Saudi Arabia wants a war against Iran, and it is urging Trump to start one.  Trump also is very subservient to the militaristic government of Israel, which also wants a war against Iran (in addition to practicing genocide […]

URGENT! Demand your U.S. Senators to co-sponsor S. 3517: PREVENT a war against Iran.

October 21, 2018 GlenAnderson 0

Trump’s EXTREME CRUELTY and MEGALOMANIA and NARCISSM cause him to think he will be a “big shot” if he attacks Iran. Trump keeps laying the groundwork for starting a TOTALLY UNNECESSARY AND UNCONSTITUTIONAL WAR. Our U.S. Senators must act responsibly to PREVENT Trump’s war against Iran.  PLEASE urge your U.S. Senators to co-sponsor S. 3517, the “Prevention of Unconstitutional War with Iran Act.”  S. 3517 would ban the use of funding for attacking Iran. PLEASE send a strong message to your senators. You can e-mail them through their websites, www.murray.senate.gov and www.cantwell.senate.gov and/or phone them:  Murray (202) 224-2621 or […]

Stop the U.S.’s cruel habit of “regime change.” It is WRONG to violently overthrow governments.

May 26, 2018 GlenAnderson 0

The U.S. has a long, horrible, cruel habit of violently overthrowing governments and abusively meddling in elections to manipulate their outcomes even if the U.S. militarily does not overthrow those governments violently. I am appalled by the hypocrisy of Americans — a majority of ordinary people, along with politicians and the mainstream news media — who express moral outrage that Russia has meddled in the U.S.’s 2016 election.  The U.S. has done this to other countries VERY OFTEN for many decades. This article summarizes the U.S.’s violent overthrows of other nations.  American politicians and news media and ordinary people do not […]

Recent protests in Iran are NOT what Trump claims

April 29, 2018 GlenAnderson 0

The following information is based on information I received from someone I know who is from Iran and is extremely well informed about her country of origin and current realities there.  This Iranian-American lives in the Washington DC area. Recently Trump lied about the protests that occurred in parts of Iran in late December 2017 and early January 2018.  He claimed that the Iranian people were calling for “regime change” and supporting Trump’s belligerent policy toward that nation.  As always, Trump was totally wrong and lied in a self-serving way. The Iranian people know that the U.S. and England overthrew […]

John Bolton will push Trump into war(s) and more violent foreign policy

April 1, 2018 GlenAnderson 0

Trump’s main criterion for appointing people is their loyalty to him.  He has been firing people who have tried to moderate Trump’s extremism and recklessness.  In March 2018 he appointed an extremely dangerous person — John Bolton — who has been wrong on a great many issues over the years and who shamelessly lied in order to help Dick Cheney and George W. Bush start their horrible war against Iraq in 2003. John Bolton will pollute Trump’s mind even further and delude Trump into thinking that he is getting smart advice from an expert, when really Trump will be  getting […]

Trump wants to start WAR against Iran. Here are some info resources.

April 1, 2018 GlenAnderson 0

Trump’s recent actions show he is gearing up to START A WAR against Iran. Appointing John Bolton to be Trump’s national security advisor has alarmed a great many people. Bolton is an extremely dangerous person who pushes for more wars. His lies helped George W. Bush start his horrible war against Iraq. I will be posting information to my blog – http://www.parallaxperspectives.org – so you can learn more. My blog has a section on Iran. You might want to read several items there, including this recent post: http://parallaxperspectives.org/prevent-trumps-war-against-iran You can also watch my interview with two Iranian-Americans at the time […]
