Swedish Politician Resigns After Calls To “Shoot Trump”

A municipal council lawmaker in the Swedish city of Kalmar, Roland Pettersson, member of the biggest Swedish Social Democratic Party, resigned on Monday after asking on Facebook if someone could “shoot” America’s president, Donald Trump.

“I believed that Donald Trump would calm down after he became the president [of the US]. But how wrong I was! He exceeded my worst fears! Could anyone shoot him?” Swedish Social Democratic Party member Roland Peterson, a municipal official in Kalmar’s Soedermoere district, wrote on his Facebook page on Sunday.

Although he later removed the post a few hours later, on Monday Peterson decided to step down as member of both his party and the Soedermoere Municipal Council and Planning Board, RT reported.

“After my blunder on Facebook, there is a risk that I will become a burden for the Social Democrats in Kalmar. I do not want it, so I chose to leave all my posts,” Peterson wrote in a letter to his party members, as quoted by the Oestra Smaland newspaper.

Person’s post provoked an angry reaction from his party members and fellow councilors. “It is good that he [Peterson] removed it [the post],” councilor Johan Persson told Oestra Smalan, adding that people should “never call for violence” regardless of their opinion of Donald Trump or other issues.

The Social Democrats’ leader in Kalmar, Roger Holmberg, denounced the post as “inappropriate” and “idiotic,” while stressing that “even thinking about the idea of violence is completely wrong.” He told Swedish broadcaster STV that he had had a conversation with Peterson and said that new party members would receive training in working with social media.

Holmber said that Peterson “is deeply remorseful,” explaining that he “did not understand the impact of the post in the social media.”

Peterson told local STV that he “would have never written” the post if he had considered the consequences, while promising he “will never do it again.” He also explained to Oestra Smalan that it was Trump’s environmental policy that had deeply upset him. “[Trump] risks the future of the entire Earth,” he said adding that “now, when the world has started going in the right direction,” Trump plans to increase oil and coal production.

While Trump’s ideas about the environmental are a source of controversy in the US, and social media went into meltdown after Trump’s inauguration when certain hot topic issues disappeared from the White House website, including climate change, we wonder if Pettersson has heard of China’s “environmental” problems, and whether the tolerant, enviornmentally savvy liberal would urge someone to nuke the entire country out of orbit if so.

Iran Caught Smuggling Anti-Tank Missile Systems Through Ukraine Under “False Manifests”

According to new reports just surfacing today, last Thursday, the day before Trump was set to take his oath of office, Iran was caught by the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine attempting to smuggle anti-tank missile systems through Kiev’s Zulyany airport under “false manifests.”  According to the Washington Free Beacon, Ukrainian authorities, upon inspecting the cargo of a plane bound for Iran last week, discovered multiple boxes filled with components for a Fagot anti-tank guided missile system.

Ukrainian authorities have confirmed that they seized a shipment of missile system components bound for Iran, according to official statements that could put the Islamic Republic in violation of international bans on such behavior.

 

The State Border Guard Service of Ukraine, or DPSU, announced late last week that it had seized at least 17 boxes filled with missile components bound for Iran, according to IHS Jane’s.

 

“The DPSU said that, during an inspection of the aircraft on 19 January, its personnel had found 17 boxes with no accompanying documents, which the aircraft’s crew said contained an aircraft repair kit,” according to the report. “Three boxes contained components that were believed to be for a Fagot anti-tank guided missile system, the rest contained aircraft parts.”

 

Days after this finding, the DPSU said that it had confirmed the missile components were destined for Iran’s Fagot system.

Ukrainian authorities released the following pictures of the seized components:

The components were intended for a Fagot anti-tank guided missile system like the one pictured below.

If true, such behavior, in addition to being just one final insult to the Obama administration on their way out of the White House, would be a direct violation of numerous international laws and agreements.

Michael Rubin, a former Pentagon adviser and expert on rogue regimes, said that Iran has been illicitly moving such weapons for quite some time and that only “fools and secretaries of state would trust Iran to uphold its agreements.”

“This isn’t the first time Iran has gotten caught red handed smuggling weapons with false manifests, for example, in 2010 in Nigeria,” Rubin said. “The question is how often does Iran get away with such smuggling and for what purpose? After all, if the weaponry is legal, there’s no reason for lying. If it’s not, Iran is violating international agreements. Either way, only fools and secretaries of state would trust Iran to uphold its agreements.”

of course, the key question is how the Trump administration will respond to Iran’s continued provocations after already describing Obama’s deal with the rogue state as the “highest level of incompetence.”  While John Kerry’s State Department, under direction of Obama’s White House, may have buried this story to save face, we suspect the Trump administration won’t rollover quite so easily.
