German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron decried President Trump's decision to cancel the United States' participation in the Iran deal negotiated by former Secretary of State John Kerry during the Obama Administration.
"For more than 70 years we've counted on the United States to protect us from hostile powers," Merkel said. "President Obama gave us his word that the US would protect us from Iran. Now Trump has ripped up the piece of paper that ensured Iran won't develop nuclear weapons until it suits them. All the money the US paid Iran to get this agreement is now down the drain."
Macron says he sees "a parallel with FDR's refusal to participate in the Munich accord with Germany in 1938. If Hitler had known that America was part of a solid front he never would've dared start World War II. Now that the solid front we had facing Iran is gone I shudder to think of the horrors to come."
Macron also derided Trump's expectation that Europe should provide for its own defense "as unrealistic. Unlike Americans, we are not violent by nature. We couldn't defend ourselves in 1940. And that was before we became accustomed to the security provided by American troops on our continent and American nuclear missiles aimed at the Soviet Union."
The two leaders are reportedly exploring a possible accommodation with Iran. "I think if we can work out a deal that preserves a Frenchman's right to drink wine and a German's right to drink beer we can grow beards and pray five times a day," Macron speculated. "At least the praying will give our citizens more time off from working while we kneel and bow our heads to Allah."
Merkel suggested that "our substantial and growing refugee population may also serve as a sort of human shield against attack. I can't really believe that Iran would be willing to kill so many fellow Muslims just to have a shot at killing more Europeans. That may be our ultimate trump card."
In related news, Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) bemoaned the recent release of three Americans held hostage by North Korea. "Having American hostages was a key bargaining chip for Kim Jong-un," Schumer lamented. "Surrendering these chips without compensation gives aid and comfort to our country's most dangerous enemyDonald Trump. I can't believe that Kim would betray the progressive cause so casually. I think it's a mistake that could have massive repercussions down the road."
