Called it about a month ago. The administration is full of war hawks and known war criminals, what do you expect. If the Democrats nominate a peace candidate Trump will lose in 2020.

Release the dogs of war. So much for America First. In today's world, we don't need the mideast for oil right, let the mideast sink or swim on their own including Isreal

Here we go again. Mericans up to their old tricks. When verbal threats don't work, send in the troops.

This is for show. 1,000 soldiers are not capable of fighting even a defensive war with Iran. I remember the lead up to the war with Iraq, this doesn't feel like that. The biggest difference is that there just isn't a sizable segment of the population calling for war with Iran.

Oh my gosh, people, when you get attacked by Iran you respond. Turning the other cheek does not work with them. These people have engaged in Holy War with anything American or Israeli. We support Israel because they are our only dependable democratic allies in the middle east. They are the frontline against the middle east attacking us.
