Trump Vs. Iran: Where is the UN and NATO?

No, really. Two of the most effective deterrents to another world war have been the United Nations and the NATO alliance. Yes, I realize that President Trump has little or no use for them, but on the international stage they are still major players.

So why the sullen silence out of both of those bodies as President Trump ramps up the tensions in the Middle East with his animosities toward Iran?

I would imagine every neighbor of Iran is a member of the UN. The most important members of NATO are signatories to the Iran Nuclear Treaty. That can’t all be afraid of the president as a bloc. And if they are, these organizations have become as moribund as can be.

Come on world…an US/Iranian conflict will have worldwide repercussions!
