    With Ally’s like the United States who needs enemies. He was also originally an ally defeating ISIS and the Taliban, he did not directly kill 600 US soldiers but did train soldiers that ended up carrying out attacks on US soldiers. Following September 11th, 2001, Iranian diplomats under Soleimani’s direction collaborated with the U.S. to fight the Taliban. The Kurdish and Shia looked at him as a hero. Assassinating a head of state is a violation of the Geneva convention and an act of war. Imagine the outrage if a foreign power deliberately assassinated one of our Generals, most Americans would consider it an act of war. I know it sounds like I’m defending him but just want to point out the entire story is not being told in this interview.

    Iran’s expansion? They’ve been self defending for decades. Ever seen the Meme: “Why did Iran put its country so close to our military bases?” The US want Iran’s oil and please Saudi Arabia, who are actually the biggest exporters of terrorism. But hey, the Saudis buy US stuff and sends oil.

    And those that start shouting Iran is terrorism. Ha, their government is nasty, their people want peace too. Many even love US movies. There’s no good vs evil here. It’s a mess of money, power, lies and fear for American as much as the other way around.

    That was a great interview. A breath of fresh air to know what is going on in that region of the world.

    She is BSing. Books does not reflect the reality! She talk nice about Saudi while they were behind 9/11 and the current dictatorship is brutal and sick. She call them reformist, well!!

    Trevor is just too good…
    He is not getting the proper praise.
    He’s clearly the hardest working producer and political commentator.
    Every time I leave his videos I learn something about the world and I’m inspired to read.

    Like I’ve been preaching to my friends…just let the new generation take control already. The old leaders and old authorities are simply carrying too much baggage for any real progress. Not just in the Middle East but in every country in the whole world. LET THE YOUNG FORGE A BRIGHTER FUTURE!

    Anyone who reads the history of US/Iranian relations impartially arrives to the conclusion that the US has been trying to end them for decades

    As far as I’m concerned, we need to get as many robots deployed to the Middle East and South Africa as possible because we seem to need to make sacrifices in those areas and I’d prefer if they weren’t human lives

    Don’t get me wrong, I love human sacrifice as much as the next guy, but sacrificing human lives is just so last century

    I was lead to believe Saudi and Iran are at ‘war’ over the status of Muhammad; one side believes he was a man while the other side believes he came to this Earth as a ‘spirit’. Anyone else see the documentary on this subject?
