Trump is against a war with Iran, and was cleared of corruption charges.

If Trump drags us into another war in the middle east chithole he will lose the next election, and deservedly so. The endless wars there have cost us trillions and gotten us nothing except more debt that will never be paid back. It's time the UN and Europe handled things for once, or let Israel do it will all the weapons we sold and gave to them.

so why is he doing so much saber rattling,

I think he may be posturing for some Reality TV posturing like he did with NK,

 

make a lot of noise and bluster,

then try to run a sham of a negotiation thru to look like a hero,

didn't really work in NK,

and he is on the verge of starting an actual conflict with Iran now.

Maybe a reality TV show with the Ayatollah where instead of Trump saying "you're fired" the Ayatollah beheads, stones, or tosses you off a building?  I'd watch it!

So are we going to allow Trump and Bolton to gin up an actual war with Iran as a means to move his corruption problems off the headlines?

Who's ''we'' ?

Still better than apologizing to them and sending pallets of cash

There is literally no conceivable way that Iran will become Iraq II.

 

Trump's own people would assassinate him first.

 

Now, I could see a scenario where we bomb them back into the stone age a little, but even that is far fetched.

Showing strength is more likely to avoid a conflict than showing weakness.

The carrier is in the gulf, does Iran shoot it?

Trump would have a  far greater degree of freedom to take on the MIC and the warmongers if he hadn't been  falsely accused by the ethically bankrupt left.

Incumbents usually win reelection during war time! 

 

Trump puts boots on the ground in Iran, and I will vote for Biden/Bernie/Pocahontas/Pelosi/whoever.

 

Trump bombs them back to the stone age, losing no one in the process, I'm fine with it.

I think Trump knows a war with Iran would sink his reelection chances so we will continue to rattle our sabers against their scimitars.

 

I think it's the Democrats that want a war with Iran.

Need some dead US soldiers to use as tools against Trump.

Does anyone else here think that someone claiming he would start a war to deflect his nonexistant corruption problems shows some serious TDS?
