iPhone : This plan where you withdraw from an effective nuclear agreement and reimpose sanctions, and when that doesn't work, adopt an extremely provocative, unpredictable, and almost certainly illegal strategy of assassination and sabotage? It's not a good plan. nytimes.com/2020/07/10/wor…

iPhone : You can’t make this up: #IRGC has filed a complaint against IRNA journalists over comments made by Deputy Commander of #Iran's Army RAdm Sayyari during a recent interview in which Sayyari criticized IRGC and state-run TV.

iPhone : 25 yrs ago, Bosnian Serb forces seized the so-called “safe area” of #Srebrenica, and went on to systematic murder 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys. It is a testament to the enormity of the massacre that victims are still being found & buried. bbc.com/news/world-eur…

iPhone : Rouhani’s presidency in 2013 started with promise to open up Iran to the West, particularly Europe, through a nuclear deal and Iranians overwhelmingly supported it.

The former necessitated the latter; The US economic stranglehold of Iran & its military encirclement have pushed Iran closer to #China.

iPhone : The GOP apparently can't differentiate a President on his last day in office commuting sentences for people who can in no way benefit him, from a President commuting the sentence of the criminal who helped him break the law & then lied for him.

iPhone : Gina Haspel, director of the CIA, said that #Iran’s mild response to the US assassination of its top commander, Gen #Soleimani, incentivized further operations against Iran.

The current bombing/sabotage campaign underway inside Iran since June is in effect those very operations.

iPhone : Call them what they are: attacks

Those behind them can’t claim to stand w/#Iranian people, who continue to suffer thru pandemic & sanctions that starve them of vital resources

To risk igniting a war w/#Iran in current global context isn’t just morally reprehensible, it’s insane twitter.com/reutersiran/st…

iPhone : [Thread] Former Mossad chief Shabtai Shavit in this interview:

-says Israel more isolated than it’s been in decades

-says leaving JCPOA was mistake & #Iran nuke program can’t be stopped:

iPhone : Unprecedented, historic corruption: an American president commutes the sentence of a person convicted by a jury of lying to shield that very president.

iPhone : Members of the Central Park Five, the Black and Latino men who were wrongfully convicted as teenagers in an attack on a jogger, helped paint the words Black Lives Matter on New York’s Fifth Avenue right in front of Trump Tower. twitter.com/shomaristone/s…
