Beautiful. Get rid of this Iran cockroach.

However, knowing USA and it's fighting capabilities, I am not very hopeful. For example there will be no occupation of the country.

A huge mess will be made. ISIS will take over Iran. Refugee Tsunami in all directions.

That is very easy to do for the US... just go "Hulk Smash" on Iran.

But Iran can't be occupied.

Perhaps a chunk will be taken out and given to the Kurds, giving Turkey a headache. Perhaps another chunk will be liberated next to Pakistan to give Pakistan a perpetual headache. Who knows?

Either way, I am getting popcorn and waiting for Operation False Flag No.23....

"Diplomatic staff have been ordered to leave Iraq, and the US military have raised the threat level in the region because of alleged intelligence about Iran-backed forces - contradicting a British general who had said there was "no increased threat".

Dutch and German soldiers said they had suspended their military training programmes in the country.

Separately, Saudi Arabia accused Tehran of a drone attack on a pipeline on Friday. It alleged that Houthi rebels in Yemen conducted the strike on Iran's orders.

A state-aligned Saudi newspaper called for the US to launch attacks on the country.

Iran denies the allegations."

"If Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end of Iran. Never threaten the United States again!"

This is what a six year old sounds like.

Trump has been bought so that US soldiers will die in service of MBS.

Trump won't order anything because Israel is not ready to open up a front against Hezbollah, which it will have to if anything is started between Fungus Dickus and Iran.

Israel is afraid of no one-- except Hezbollah.

Anything Houti rebels do to Saudi Arabia is totally justified, are we to pretend Saudis can bomb Yemen but they aren't allowed to counter attack? And I don't care what they do to the blood thirsty monarchy in Saudi, the United States has no business in any of it.

"Never threaten the United States again!"

Is this a "red line"?

I imagine they have already threatened us. Again.

Just to watch a baby Trumpy dance.

If Trump can't be a Venezuelan War President for the "August product roll-out", he might as well be the Iran War Fearmonger Pres candidate.

In either case, the message is the same; be afraid, be very afraid.

I am amazed that we are even talking conflict with Iran, I mean when Obama lifted about 130 billion in sanctions and delivered 1.7 billion in cash we were told this would make the US and Iran alleys. WTF?

No, you weren't. We were told the conflict would de-escalate.

It did.

Until Trump undid it all and went about threatening Iran to boost his ratings. Now we lost the united European front against Iran, we lost inspectors on the ground, and we lost any negotiated deal where Iran agreed to not develop nukes.

Now Iran can develop nukes and we can only say, "We disagree." And they certainly aren't going to sign another deal with us after we backed out on the first one.

Worse, Trump's escalation means a smart Iran would immediately develop a nuke or two to protect itself. A nuke means we can't invade.

"In order to get elected, I will start a war with Iran." - Donald Trump

"I will attack Iran in the not too distant future because it will help me win the election." - Donald Trump

"Now that my poll numbers are in tailspin – watch for me to launch a strike in Libya or Iran. I am desperate." - Donald Trump

"Don't let me play the Iran card in order to start a war in order to get elected--be careful Democrats!" - Donald Trump

"Remember that I predicted a long time ago that I will attack Iran because of my inability to negotiate properly-not skilled!" - Donald Trump

Now before anyway starts saying Trump never said those things, all of the quotes above we're taken from Trump's Twitter feed between 2011 and 2013 in regards to Obama. I only changed the references to Obama to be Trump talking about himself. Once again, anytime you see Trump accusing someone of something terrible you can be pretty sure it's simply Trump confessing to his own desires and misdeeds.

3 years ago this poster wanted a full-blown hot war with Syria and Russia.

...now fearmongering to the angry mob.

Why are you blaming Obama for Trump being Trump? Iran is no more of a threat today than it was years ago.

And nobody ever said the Iran deal would suddenly make the US and Iran "alleys" or allies.

Annnnd, it predictably all amounted to nothing, you are now free to circle flap about the next faux Trump crisis.

"The official end of Iran"

Trump is copying the Ayatollah Khomeini playbook.

Naturally, his supporters are overjoyed by this turn of events.

A nuke means we can't invade.

It may provide a reason to do so.

Trump is a narcissistic, greedy BS artist. If Iran wanted the USA to leave them alone, all they have to do is give Trump a hotel in downtown Tehran.
The Norks should do the same thing. Heck, Putin didn't even have to give him a hotel, Vlad just made trampy want it bad.
