    That’s the LAST thing anyone needs: another war.

    remember speak softly and carry a big stick? If you draw a line in the sand and then do nothing when it is crossed then how has that helped? IMO the USA needs to butt out of middle east politics and let the chips fall where they may.

    I guess you would be alright with the rise of the ISIS caliphate? If they got big enough and successful enough, they would come looking for us. It is far better to discourage outcomes you won’t like while they are small and vulnerable. It’s simply good planning and statesmanship. Of course Trump would like to send the military in to clean things up. That didn’t work out very well with the last Bush war did it?

    The US is responsible for the chaos in the Middle East. Cia staged a coup in 1953 to remove Iran’s ELECTED prime minister because he had the audacity to want to keep oil profits for Iran instead of BP and other oil companies. Thern Bush 43 removed Saddam which Cheney said (in 1992 as Sec. of Defense) would cause the chaos that led to ISIS.

    Maybe it’s time for the red-meat frenzied right wing to give a listen to a rock classic, Don’t Get Fooled Again!

    .

    But it won’t happen. They’ll just want a parade of tanks and missiles, and another war.

    .

    Remember when Trump said he would “defeat ISIS in one, maybe two, months, without a large army… and then we’d move in and take their oil.” …? He was talking about using Neutron Bombs. And, boy, did he seem disappointed when being told (four times!) that actually using our nuclear arsenal is not a good idea (his words were “What good are they if we don’t use them?”).

    .

    This is the ADHD guy with a hair-trigger temper, attacking anybody who disagrees with him, and inclined to indulge his whim of iron in crazy, 140-character bursts. He disregards the advice of intelligence professionals (has gone to only two briefings), preferring instead the counsel and “facts” sanitized by the likes of Breitbart and Drudge – even while his inner circle consists of the staff of FOX News “contributors”, political lickspittles, billionaire robber barons, and loose-cannon militarists.

    .

    So, y’think he’s “qualified”? Let’s let Beetlejuice answer that:

    .

    “Ah. Well… I attended Juilliard… I’m a graduate of the Harvard business school. I travel quite extensively. I lived through the Black Plague and had a pretty good time during that! I’ve seen the Exorcist 167 times, and it keeps gettin’ funnier every single time I see it! Not to mention the fact that you’re talking to a dead guy!! Now whaddya think!? ’think I’m qualified?"

    But… but they hate us for our freedoms! That’s what I keep getting told!

    This is not how Iran is going to react. The Republicans have always wanted war with Iran and will pick up where they left off 8 years ago trying to get their wish.

    The CIA is begging Trump not to wreck the Iran deal. Don’t they know that flattery is what works on him?

    Hope they do stop Iran somehow, they export terrorism, they export the hate the Democrats say they hate. They send arms to Hezbollah and other groups. Why is this a hard one to understand.

    @jack75287

    When the Republicans go back on the treaty and the Iranians develop nuclear weapons, it will all be on Trump’s watch.

    “Hope they do stop Iran somehow, they export terrorism, they export the hate the Democrats say they hate.”

    .

    No excuse for Iran’s support of Hezbollah, etcetera, but taking a hardline against Iran undermines Putin. Trump will have a hard time resolving his contradictory goals.
