Sad to see Trump finally caving to Mike Pompeo and John Bolton, swamp creatures and war hawks of the past administrations.

It'll be best to clear out in advance of Iran doing something really stupid in the Strait of Hormuz and getting the tar beat out of them by the Saudis. If the Iranians attempt to shut down the Strait of Hormuz, the Saudis and Iraqis will almost certainly attack in order to force a reopening. In a conventional war Iran stands practically no chance against the Saudis and its highly likely the Iranians will attempt to use some of that nuclear material they're almost certainly lying about not having so it's best to be well clear before they irradiate half the middle east with dirty bombs or whatever.

Another box checked on the illegal invasion checklist. Now we just need a false flag or fake claim they have "WMD's", and we can invade another county that poses no threat to us, as a favor to the House of Saud. 80% of the world follows the dictates of the US Empire. So why do we always find ourselves Saudi Arabia's bitch?

Do you think Trump is in control of foreign affairs, it's the dual citizens who call the shots, not putting themselves in danger obviously, that's the job for the goy.

Trump started this whole problem when he thought he was so smart to pull out of the nuclear deal we had with Iran, against advice from his advisors because it was working, and then he, in all his stupid wisdom, decided to label the Iranian Revolutionary Guard a terrorist group. They in turn called ALL Americans terrorists and basically put targets on the backs of our military. When are Americans going to wake up and realize we have an idiot for a President. He's more corrupt than Nixon, wants to be a dictator like Putin, and truly doesn't care about anyone but himself. Did you ever take an Economics class. Look it up. Tariffs are a tax that is paid by the merchant purchasing the goods and then recouped by increasing the price of the merchandise being sold to the consumer. The consumer, in essence, is paying the tariff. You're probably not hearing any of this on Fox (Trump) News.

I would put money on this being saber rattling. Neither side is interested in a war. The only way a war is likely to start between the USA and Iran anytime soon is by accident or if Iran is crazy enough to start one. There is no interest in a war with Iran right now and Trump would be foolish to start one.
