So, Let's Get this Straight.
Trump, despite the advice and warnings of America's security/intelligence agencies and his country's major allies, gives in to Netanyahu's propaganda campaign against Iran, and walks away from the Iran nuclear weapons deal.
Iran, therefore, in an act of crushing military stupidity, fires a missile barrage at Israeli targets in the occupied Golan Heights. So lethal is the Iranian barrage that no one is even hit.
Israel immediately retaliates, bombing the shit out of Iranian military installations in Syria.
This couldn't possibly be a set-up, could it? The timing of these events is pure coincidence, right?
Why does Reichstag Fire keep coming to mind? There's just that powerful stench of someone really spoiling to start a war.
Meanwhile, today's Guardian editorial contends that Trump is sowing the seeds of war on Iran. Foreign Policy columnist and Harvard prof, Dr. Stephen Walt, sees the same war clouds gathering.
