  1. That picture is Shakespearian – three foul witches, stirring the pot.

  2. Europe is not going to swallow this crap. Trump (or Bolton or whoever is orchestrating this) is being so blatant and clumsy as to make Bush look like a virtuoso. And they know an attack on Iran would trigger a wave of terrorist attacks, many of which would happen in European cities.

    Bolton may get his war, but he’s not going to convince anyone outside the Trumpanzee trailer parks that it’s anything other than a flagrant act of unprovoked aggression.

    • Hello Infidel. Congress couldn’t muster the balls to override his veto of their attempt to pull us from the disaster that is Yemen. Do you think the republicans would back him in a full war against Iran? Hugs

      • In practice Congress couldn’t do much about it. The President has very wide powers over the use of the military. Congress controls the money and only they can actually declare war, but there’s no way they’d refuse to fund US troops once fighting starts, and a war can be started without a declaration of one. It’s really more a question of who Trump might listen to. He’s not generally enthused about overseas wars, and I’m sure it’s more Bolton that’s pushing this. Mattis could have stopped it when he was still there. Who might talk sense into him now, I don’t know. The Joint Chiefs probably know what a disaster it would likely be in terms of casualties and protracted fighting. If they could convince him we’d still be bogged down in an unpopular war there when election day comes, and he’d be dooming his chances of getting re-elected, that might persuade him. Half the time it’s a matter of who talked to him last.

  3. I can’t help but wonder how enthused the war-mongers would be if the U.S. was located on another continent …

    • Hello Nan. Yes the oceans have been a protection for us. I just wonder at the need some people have for the country to act like an aggressive obnoxious jerk demanding everyone give us our own way and thank us for not stealing their lunch money? Hugs
