I wonder if anybody else has been noticing the Trump gradual, but constantly moving to a war on Iran? Oh, with the full collusion of Israel (basically, yet again doing their bidding). Here is a link to the story about the Israeli efforts to sway us:http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-43952196
Now add in the Trump 'advisors' who have been very public in their belief/need to goto war with Iran. Those two stalwarts, Pompeo and Bolton, for instance, have not been backwards about this one, especially Bolton who is actually calling for a war RIGHT NOW!
I wonder, even though the Pentagon has held, for a long time, that a war with Iran would be a REALLY bad idea. Do we really need yet another un-winnable political war? We have now spent over 1 TRILLION dollars on the 18 year old ongoing war in Afghanistan and continue to spend billions even now. A war wherein there is no way to win, just keep on spending treasure instead of taking care of our infrastructure, healthcare, education, etc. I think its a fair question; Do we really need another political war?
I guess I should add that I firmly believe that our efforts in Afghanistan is our part in the thousand year old Muslim war between Sunni and Shia and Iran is just another part of that war. So, to refine: Do we really need to be in the middle of a thousand year old Muslim war because Israel, and Saudi Arabia, and John Bolton, think we should be?
