The “bankers” will not be best pleased, Trump and his backers are not pleased. One headline prefaces with “Trump to unleash Hell on Europe” (which is of course exaggerated). Iran now has a means to circumvent sanctions. Is this a case of Mahershalalhashbaz (LOL)…… SWIFT is booty, speedy is prey (Isa 8.3). The EU is still trying to broker peace. What is wrong with them? Did they not get the war memo? Perhaps they don’t want another 2 million Middle East refugees. Spoilsports. It all helps diversity.

Seems like Saudi Arabia will not be able to continue supply when war starts.
Even with their alternative pipeline there will not be enough to go around.
Preparation for War?: Israel, US and UK Conduct First joint F-35 drills over Mediterranean US Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcons refuel behind a KC-135 Stratotanker (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Shawn Nickel). Israeli F-35 fighter jets participated this week in an international exercise alongside F-35s from the United States and United Kingdom, the Israel Defense Forces announced on Wednesday.
The foreign minister of Bahrain, Khalid bin Ahmed al Khalifa said that his country recognizes Israel’s right to exist, knows that it is “there to stay,” and wants peace with it reports The Times of Israel.
Diplomatic negotiations have moved into the delicate phase of name calling. Trump has been called retarded and mental and Iran has been threatened with obliteration. I wonder where the Iranians got the idea from?
If we are going to descend to the level of the “playground” then let us use the analogy. We have a big playground with two gangs. One gang calls themselves Shia and the other gang calls themselves Sunni. They both want to be in charge of the playground. We have a smaller kid who has pushed into the playground and has a special relationship with the headmaster (who some consider retarded). The small kid was often bullied when he was younger. He cries a lot and was forced to move away because he was naughty but now he wants his spot in the playground back. The small kid who has claimed a part of the playground has kicked out another kid and won’t let him play marbles in the corner anymore. Some consider the small kid a bully always running to the headmaster (who he has some kind of hold over) and telling tales. Suffice to say the small kid and the headmaster had a good idea. What if they suck up to the Sunni gang? If they can get the Sunni gang to ignore the kid who wants to play marbles in the corner then the Sunni gang together with the retarded headmaster and the crying kid can beat up the Shia gang and have the playground to themselves. And they lived happily ever after (NOT). Because bad actors like that always end up slapping, pinching and pulling each others hair. And the chief of the board of governors is coming to inspect the playground and the school. And he will kick the backside of that retarded headmaster, the small crying kid and all the gangs until they say that they are sorry. He did the same thing to the naughty cry baby a long time ago and the kid is still not sorry:
"When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen? They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons" (Matthew 21:40-41 ).
Trump says that Iran made a big mistake. In this video Trump strikes a conciliatory tone and offers the opinion that the incident may not have the support of the Iranian government but might be down to an over enthusiastic IRG (terrorist organization?) soldier. Trump adds that it is lucky that the drone was unmanned (aren’t they always?) so no loss of life.
It seems then that Trump is less inclined towards war than Pompeo or Bolton. Perhaps Trump remembers the promises he made to voters or perhaps he remembers his previous tweets?
The location of the drone crash site has become clearer:
Ooops! Big Mistake. That is not the drone crash site but the site where the USS Vincennes shot down an Iranian passenger plane in 1988 (AR Flight 655) that was definitely “manned” (including 66 children). Bush senior publicly stated that America would not apologize and Bush gave the Medal of Honour to the captain of the Navy Vessel. Perhaps the Iranians should hand a medal to the drone shooter and blow a big raspberry at the US. The only one making Big Mistakes here is the US. Here is the crash (and launch) sites:
It is a big Mistake for Iran to continue its war mongering:
Although the Yinon Plan for a greater Israel lies behind much of the trouble in the Middle East, the situation cannot be reduced to a single factor as multiple intersecting interests (including oil supply and the petro dollar) are driving the chaos. The old adage that “all wars are banker wars” holds true because many of the moneylenders have the same interests as the territorial expansionists – it seems they have hit a sweet spot that allows the simultaneous achievement of multiple goals namely, territorial expansion, oil security and petro dollar supremacy with the strategic goals of Israel merging with those of the US. It is not for nothing that many of the countries that rejected the petro dollar soon found themselves at war.
