“If Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end of Iran. Never threaten the United States again,” Trump said in a tweet.

Trump has tightened economic sanctions against Iran, and his administration says it has built up the U.S. military presence in the region. It accuses Iran of threats to U.S. troops and interests.

Tehran has described U.S. moves as “psychological warfare” and a “political game.”

So it will be ok to spend 2 Trillion in Iran just like Bush/Trump Republicans spent 2 Trillion in Iraq looking for nonexistent weapons. 800 Billion is a small fraction of that for MEDICARE for all and all the money stays in the USA. What happened to America First? Now we will rebuild Iran the same way the Republicans did in Iraq?

This is how wars start, everyone thinks they are in control of the situation and can keep it under control. They are not. Sometimes they cannot.

So, some of you think that Iran should be allowed to get nuclear, and continue to be the major funder of terrorism? And once they have nuclear, they could threaten to wipe out Israel, and keep the world in a constant state of chaos. Are you guys in denial???

I don't think that there will be a shooting war with Iran, in the near future. In the meantime, the Iranians are svitsing, because Trump has unleashed a psychological war against them. They really don't know what he will do next. Now, their Mullahs and Generals are all on edge, and probably don't sleep very well. They are getting payback, for all of the provocative terrorist acts, which they have unleashed around the world.

Amen. What a refreshing change from the weakling obama who caved to every terrorist and even helped support them! What a traitor that affirmative action president was!
