Listen: Iran, United States And President discussed on Michael Savage
"Because the non interventionist president of the United States, suddenly has an interventionist impulse. I guess according to the media's logic I it's really ridiculous. Trump opposes regime change. He clearly does not want to handle the expenses of another military conflict and ran is not trying to get into L conflict either. Because the charges that they used for the attacks. We're not designed to destroy the vessel's. So is actually relatively tame attack. Yeah. With with all of this said, what exactly is Ron doing here? What are you what, what is the purpose of Iran, getting so militants? I hear yours. Sure. Well, the most obvious thing is increase the price of oil, so that of what little sales that they make from exports. They get more money and you don't need that much money to pay a bunch of thugs to keep you in power. So oil prices rose by four percent. And that's the most obvious part of their strategy. But the worst part is that they want to crack the coalition that was put together for sanctions, and go after countries basically, pressure of the countries that are not as openly, anti Iran by hurting their economies, not just through raising the price of oil, but the price on everything because you have to put insurance on the vessels that travel through the straits moves in the surrounding areas. And so this is a good way of hurting the economy for multiple angles and not just oil, one of the things that people have been pushing when it comes to the, the Iran story is the idea that if the United States takes more militant response to Iran aggression, that is inevitably leads to some sort of thermonuclear war, that at the end of this road is the United States in a full-scale war with Ron, I find this all puzzling since back in the nineteen eighties, the Iranians did the same thing. Basically saying they're tinpot navy, and that was pretty much the end of it for about thirty years. What should the United States be doing here? Well, you're right, we are in new territory, so people need to keep that in mind that there is a precedent for all of this, and that's why the Iranians are behaving in this way because they have a precedent to go off of. But what should the United States be doing? I think in terms of pressure, we should keep doing what we are doing because hurting their economy and bringing the regime to the brink is really the best possibility for voiding, both war. And also getting if even possible some type of workable deal. My fear is that if the regime is put to bring that Iran regime will be able to exploit a slate within the Trump administration over regime change, and Iran will come to President Trump and say, all right, we're willing to concede on nuclear weapons and other areas. In return, we want you to sell us Valence equipment. We want you to lift some sanctions, we want you to be silent on human rights, help us stay in power, and you'll get the deal that you want, and you can brag all day. And if the Iranians propose that I'm not sure what the president does. And with that said, it's pretty obvious that the president is not want to go to war. I'm puzzled by this impulse on the left. His the president is. Desperately seeking war with Ron he obviously is not. He doesn't have that impulse. He's not interested in going to war not a year and a half way from the election with the American people, deeply skeptical of any sort of military conflict at this point, as far as what are America's interests in the region. So let's go back to basics for a second. It's, it's pretty it's pretty easy to jump into second order thinking, when it comes to foreign policy why should we care about what Iran is doing in the streets and four moves or in the Gulf of Oman. It's pretty far away."
