America’s reputation & history in #SouthAmerica is a factor as we have sponsored multiple coups going back to ‘54 and as late as ‘73.
Key to the survival or demise of #Maduro is the #military. Theyr’re divided with senior leaders supporting Maduro and mid-grade officers and lower ranks supporting #Guaido. They could switch sides at any moment if leadership of the army sees that they are fighting a losing cause.
#President@realDonaldTrump's words, whether you accept his apology and his explanation, do not comport with his actions and his foreign policy toward #Russia. He has been one of the hardest presidents on Russia in recent memory.
Where was the outrage when @BarackObama told Medvedev to inform #Putin "After my election I have more flexibility,"? I think much of the outrage being expressed- especially by #Republicans- is politically motivated.
It should be pretty clear by now- since #Israel has launched at least a hundred strikes into #Syria in the last seven years- that every time they have felt threatened by #Iran, the #Israeli's will take decisive action. #SyriaStrikes
#Iran is determined to position themselves to be able to deal a devastating blow to their hated enemy, #Israel, from bases in #Syria. Their view is that they have helped the #Assad regime with their #civilwar and now it is payback time. #SyriaStrikes
The #President exhibited a sterling example of international leadership by withdrawing from the broken #IranNuclearDeal. Its the right decision for our safety & the safety of the world, to remove ourself from a deal that leads to a fully nuclear #Iran. #IranDealWithdrawl
@SenTedCruz tweeted that the knee-jerk reaction against Israel is "a long historical pattern of baseless slander." Could it actually be #antisemetism tho?
Nearly 200 retired General + Flag officers signed a letter in 2015 urging #Congress to reject the #IranDeal. There were countless others who said the same thing, but @BarackObama & @JohnKerry pushed a bad deal through.
As a former Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence, I am astonished at the width and breadth of material #Israel produced on #Iran's violations of the #IranDeal, but I believe it is legitimate.
