Lawrence Wilkerson: US ‘Marching Down the Road to War’ Against Iran

Lawrence Wilkerson has presented a dire prediction about a United States war on Iran. The former US Army colonel made this prediction during a Monday interview with host Joy Reid at MSNBC.

Wilkerson argues in the interview that President Donald Trump has taken actions that assure the failure of the Iran nuclear deal entered into by Iran, the US, and several other parties in 2015. Once the agreement fails, says Wilkerson, war follows.

Like with the lead-up to the Iraq War in 2003, with which Wilkerson has much familiarity as the former chief of staff for Secretary of State Colin Powell, Wilkerson says the US is now “marching down the road to war,” this time against Iran.

Ron Paul Urges Americans to Resist Deep State and Media Push for War on North Korea

We are seeing now in regard to North Korea a replay of the type of campaign the deep state and the media used in 2001 through 2003 to stir up the American people to support the invasion of Iraq. This is the assessment of former United States House of Representatives member and presidential candidate Ron Paul in a Tuesday interview with Alex Jones on the Alex Jones Show.

In the interview focused on US foreign policy and, in particular, relations between the US and North Korea, Paul declared:

Just remember … the propagandists, the deep state and the media, convinced the American people that Saddam Hussein was a danger. They’re doing the same thing now with North Korea.

In response to this propaganda, Paul, who has served as chairman of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity since leaving the US House, says Americans “ought to wise up and just not buy into this.”
