In his maiden speech before the United Nations General Assembly last week, President Trump declared the Iran nuclear deal “an embarrassment to the United States.” Trita Parsi, author of “Losing an Enemy: Obama, Iran, and the Triumph of Diplomacy,” begs to differ.
“There’s many things I would say potentially could be an embarrassment to the United States,” Parsi said in the latest episode of “Cape Up.” “The Iran deal is not one of them.”

Trita Parsi, telling it like it is

“If I were to guess, the way Donald Trump is doing it is the way that a real estate developer in Manhattan behaves. You scare the daylights out of your competitors. You scare the daylights out of your subcontractors, and you twist their arms until they lower their prices,” he said. “Other countries — France, Iran, Russia — are not subcontractors to the United States.”

TP tell's it like it is, especially when talking to and quoting himself.
Did anyone say Echo, echo, echo,...!

He won't have to ditch the deal, at least not in a way that will seem irresponsible to the world community. At some point, he and the other parties will be given an excuse to ditch the deal, either through evidence - real or fake - that Iran is misbehaving, or a false flag attack. Trita Parsi is not a neutral commentator on this issue because he staked his entire reputation on the JCPOA.

Ditch or no ditch, these are just some hot air for Trump's 'internal consumption' purposes. Everyone knows how American corporations will be the biggest losers if Trump reneges from JCPOA.
In overall scheme of things, relatively speaking, at least TP is associated with diplomatic approaches and opposition to an escalation of war, which is a lot more honorable than a sick, permanent attachment to the military bourgeoisie, Sepah. Hiding behind Ahmad Kasravy and a 'nationalist' cover.

American corporations will be the biggest winners if there is a war with Iran.

Practically the exact same is true for mullahs in Iran, if there is a war in our land all the corporations owned and operated by Sepah will be the biggest 'winners.'
Not to mentions only losers and idiots could imagine there are any 'winners' in any war.

Wrong. If there is a war against Iran perpetrated by the US, the mullahs and their industrial complexes are finished.

War has always been a blessing for Hezbollahi thugs, from Tehran to Stanford.
If US could have had a war with Iran they would have had it 20 years ago.
Fear mongering from this 'inevitable' and 'unstoppable' war is just another stupid tool from the worn out Hezbollahi propaganda list.
And it ain't working, except in depraved, demented 'mind' of Hezbollahi thugs.

Yeah, like "Contra-Gate" when Americans were busy selling arms and ammunition to mullahs.
Islamic State in Iran is the best thing that ever happened to the US and it allies.
Only Hezbollahi thugs addicted to worn out warmongering propaganda having a hard time figuring out the truth.

Yep, I guess you'll keep saying that until the bombs start raining down on Tehran. Maybe then you'll reconsider. Oh, so the Americans sold the mullahs some weapons, and even helped them seize power in 1979... so what? It counts for absolutely nothing.

Hezbollah thugs have been trying to scare the population with this kind of worn out tactics for the past 20 years.
But the last time Tehran was actually, in real life, subject to bombs raining on it was in the 80's, and it was all because of the crazed ego of a Shiite nutcase calling for 'war, war till victory.' He took his chalice at the end and kicked the bucket, but before he did that he made sure:
Tens of thousands of our youth were drugged while on the front line, to run over minefields.
Thousands others were chemically attacked, carrying the sufferings to this day.
Khoramshahr still looks like it was just attacked, after 37 years.
Moral of the story: Degenerate, depraved, sick Hezbollahi thugs have zero credit when it comes to matters of peace. They suffer from a diabolically dark past and history (for sake of this exchange and brevity!) stretching back to Cinema Rex in Abadan.
Of course under other communicative circumstances the diabolically dark past and history could be easily stretched back to 1840's, 1500's, Islamic invasion of Iran.

Last but not least, I would love to thank you from the bottom of my heart, for rekindling my love of Persian poetry writing, encouraging me to write such literary unprecedented lines. At this pace I could have a book of poems anon.
And once again for your entertainment and pleasure.

But of course people like YOU accept absolutely no responsibility for what happened in 1979, do you? YOU and your failed revolution are the reason why the Iran-Iraq war happened.

No, blood thirstiness of khomeini was the reason our movement against shah gave birth to a stillborn revolution. Our revolution was DOA. Dead On Arrival.
As soon as monarchy was replaced by a theocracy, the revolution was dead.
Blood thirstiness of khomeini was also the only cause why that war went on for eight years. Remember 'War, war to victory.'
This latest 'cover' of nationalist is not fooling anyone but the idiots from the Intelligence ministry, and Sepah's Intelligence that come up with such utter cow manure.

You still haven't said a word about all this outstanding poetry in here.

Your revolution was dead on arrival because you were played by much stronger powers from the get go. Craving power, blinded by arrogance, you thought you had a chance, but you had nothing. You allied yourselves with the puppets of the CIA and MI6, and in doing so, committed mass suicide. Pathetic.

Mullahs who helped shah get back to power in 1953 were, are and will be the ultimate puppets.
The same mullahs who were armed by the US in 'Contra Gate' further proved just how much of a puppet they still are.
It's amazing how Hezbollahi thugs defend khomeini, AN, Trump and Bannon but call others 'arrogant.'
There is simply no end to Hezbollahi thugs advanced level of schizophrenia.
The 'best' part of Islamic State in Iran is how it has substantially and significantly discredited Islam and especially shi'ism in Iran. Now, that is mass suicide, if you know what I mean.
But Fatmeh Komandos are too tone-deaf (in a Kellyanne Conway Esque way) to comprehend any of this
