If Trump actually went to war with Iran, he would put the China trade talks, the Iranian nuclear deal, the stock market and our national debt all at risk. He would have nothing to show for his 4 years in office, and would leave terrible legacy.

Trump's problem now is that he started this ball rolling because he assumed the nation would rally behind him if we were in a war. The Fox news people he trusts have told him a war would actually kill his reelection. He can't get Iran to come to the table with him because he has no credibility. So, Iran will keep making a mess for Trump and the rest of the world and Trump will keep moving forces into the region until somebody makes a mistake and we have the war we all dread.

 

Iran said lift the sanctions and advance the Obama deal to 2023, which allows IAEA inspectors in.

 

Problem solved. 

 

Nothing to it but to do it.

Preparations for Trump's war with Iran

 

In the end Trump will deal with Iran, and the deal will look a lot like the deal Obama negotiated, except it will be called the Trump nuclear arms agreement,  and Trump will expect a Noble Peace Prize for escalating and then deescalating a conflict.

Trump can sanction and blockade Iran, but that's about it.

 

The US can't fight a war over Iran without air superiority and the SS-400 has Iranian air space closed down.

 

Our best air craft the F-35, would have a hard time getting though that air defense system. Forget about taking out Iran;s fortified nuclear progam, we would need bunker busting bombs for that carried by B-2 bombers.

 

B-2 bombers wouldn't make it past the SS-400 system. 


Bonespurs WUSSolini is going to attack Iran with no reliable allies on our side and he will suffer a humiliating defeat, prompting his mentality and emotions of a 6 year-old to call a Nuclear Strike. His base will CHEER because its the first big step toward Armageddon that those fundie nutcases think will bring back Jesus.

If you think this is farfetched, you haven't been listening to donny.

An alternate explanation is Trump is picking fights, Iran, Mexico, Europe, to force rates down and delay a recession.

 

Trump is creating instability to force lower FED rates.


Maybe but those fights are also increasing the price of oil and imports of parts. They are also discouraging investments until things settle down.  On the other hand, Trump does not understand economics so you may be right.

Trump has now destroyed the treaty keeping Iran from developing a bomb. Iran realizes they cannot negotiate with a country that does not keep its treaty agreements. He imposed economic sanctions which are forcing a notoriously unstable country to react. He has moved ships into the region providing more opportunity for confrontation. Now he is moving troops into Saudi Arabia.  The war is only months away at best. 

........ Or as soon as prosecutors are able to get Epstein to rat on Trump in a plea bargain.

DUMP TRUMP AND DITCH MITCH TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!
