A mere three or four years ago this blog was anticipating the imminent outbreak of hostilities between The Empire and those plucky Persians. See here and here for example.
To my surprise, the Peace Prize President managed to keep his itchy trigger-finger holstered long enough to craft the Iran nuke deal instead, wherein the Persians promised to dismantle their imaginary nuke program in return for Uncle Sam easing up on the sanctions, much to the chagrin of our allies in the only democracy in the Middle East.
Well, as you've probably noticed by now, there's a new sheriff in town, a new sheriff who at first blush appears even more amenable to taking counsel from AIPAC than the old sheriff, if such a thing can be imagined.
Trump has put Iran "on notice" that bad shit is gonna happen if the Persians don't change their double-dealing back-stabbing ways. After all we've done for them, those turbaned ingrates still insist on developing technology that will deter regional enemies (ie The Chosen People) from rendering them a post-nuke rubble field.
That's obviously a non-starter.
Maybe this is where number 45 shows the world that America is not afraid to follow through...
...and that prospect should scare everyone!
