The sheer tone used by @aarondmiller2 in his @CNN piece proves to me how @realDonaldTrump is EXACTLY on target when it comes to #Iran's regime.
He has the mullahs, and the likes of Miller, on the ropes.
Here's a ridiculous line:
"He is the first president in American history who cannot define the national interest..."

Why does @aarondmiller2 say this?
Because he's a lefty & part of the #MSM.
And Trump has called their hand.
I'm sure @aarondmiller2 would prefer a return to the @BarackObama years.
No thanks.

(This is only an assumption, but he probably received fat paychecks from #Iran's regime. I hope I'm wrong but my gut instincts say I'm right.)
@aarondmiller2 expresses his (and #Iran's) wishes in this line:

"If Iran were to agree to new terms, the US would have to make much deeper concessions..."

Mark my words: That is NOT going to happen.
The appeasement years of are over.
Live with it, Aaron.
@aarondmiller2 makes a fool out of himself in
"...Kim came to the summit as the victor, not the vanquished."

Of course, his ego won't allow him to admit that Trump solved a crisis that many before him couldn't and only deepened.
@aarondmiller2 states his concerns here:

"Iran stands to gain little from a summit with Trump under these circumstances..."

What he doesn't say (obviously) is that #Iran is facing #IranProtests & #IranRegimeChange, which Aaron doesn't welcome at all.
@aarondmiller2 further states his concerns:

Trump doesn't have "a clue about what would replace it and how to deal with Iran going forward."

It's simple Aaron.
Firm policy = #Winning
You know this, but your ego (and probably your paycheck) won't allow you to say so.
"He has no concept of what constitutes America's national interests..."

@aarondmiller2 says this simply because Trump's firm policies don't provide for his interests and threaten the very existence of #Iran's regime.
Here @aarondmiller2 resorts to an old tact of crying "war"

"We should have channels to Tehran, if only to lessen the dangers of an unnecessary and dangerous war."

Trump is too smart for that.
#Iran's regime knows it won't last for a day.
Wake up call for @aarondmiller2:
#Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman & IRGC have "rejected" talks with Trump, knowing the end result would be the end of their regime.

Aaron & other Iran apologists like him, are on a doomed mission to save the mullahs.
Here are my thoughts about Trump's latest move against #Iran's regime.

U.S. President Donald Trump has accepted the resignation of Nikki Haley as UN Ambassador.

My gut tells me an even bigger story will develop.

Rest assured #Iran's regime is terrified about who Trump/Pompeo will appoint as their new envoy.
Amb. Nikki Haley spoke six months ago with President Donald Trump about the subject of resigning.
Will be staying at this post until the end of the year.

Add this to the long list linking #Iran's regime with international terrorism.

This time, the al Qaeda-affiliated al Shabaab militant group of Somalia.

More reason why a firm policy is needed against Tehran.
"Criminal networks are using Iran as a transit point for illicit Somali charcoal exports that earn Islamist militants al Shabaab millions of dollars annually in tax, U.N. sanctions monitors said in a report seen by Reuters."
"... domestic revenue generation by al Qaeda-affiliated al Shabaab 'is more geographically diversified and systematic' than that of Somalia’s federal government."

Reports indicate atmosphere in #Iran's parliament (the Majlis) is very tense as members review the anti-money laundering Financial Action Task Force (FATF) signing bill.
Sources say "hardliners" are voicing threats about the signing of this bill.

(File Photo)
"Regarding the FATF, should we commit suicide today by signing this bill because we're going to die in the future?" says Behrouz Nemati, a member of #Iran's Majlis (parliament).

Read more about Iran & the FATF here:
"Hardliners in Iran’s parliament have opposed passing legislation toward compliance with FATF standards, arguing it could hamper Iranian financial support for allies such as Lebanon’s Hezbollah, which the US has classified as a terrorist organization."

Short Thread:

#Iran's #FakeNews machine at work:

"It did not say where Zahedifar was arrested. In a video carried by state broadcaster IRIB, a blindfolded man who identified himself as Zahedifar denied he had fled Iran."
Here's the video.

What a coincidence (!), all of this developing just "a week after Tehran sentenced three people to death in a drive against economic crimes."
