About Jack

Jack is really a storyteller, international explorer, and humanitarian and everything else rolls out from there. As a writer, its what he does. As a international human rights and criminal lawyer and trial skills teacher around the world, its his most important tool. As a former CIA officer, the only way to truly motivate people is to connect and to tell them a story that they can feel viscerally. As a media analyst, what better way to make a point.  In the end, he tries to captivate his audience about the world and its people as much as he himself is captivated.

Tensions Rising with the Iranians

The U.S. has had a tortured relationship with the Iranians for a very long time.  It doesn't help that the U.S. and the Brits helped to overthrow a democratically elected Iranian leader in favor of a puppet whom they liked more. It rarely gets much better after that.  

The Cold War continued to separate the two for years thereafter. Then in the 80's, the U.S. shot down an Iranian domestic airplane killing more than 300 civilians.  Consider what the Americans would have done if the Iranians did something similar?

A few years ago, 10 U.S.l sailors were taken captive for straying into Iranians waters. Of course, the Iranians aren't Lilly-white either.  They have supported dictators and terrorist groups in their own right throughout the world and continued to create instability in Iraq and elsewhere.  

They came to a nuclear agreement alongside the Brits, the French, the Germans, the Russians and the Chinese. Then Trump withdrew from the agreement and reimposed sanctions and things have been unraveling ever since. Now, two oil tankers have been hit and the Iranians have shot down a U.S. $100 million drone.

Where are we going now.  I will appear on AM950 6/21. Hope you can catch it.
