doesn't it? Trump attacked a motorcade and blew up a general. Iran is a state sponsor of terrorism and the general used for that terrorism was killed.

Now Iraq supports Iran, and China and Russia support Iran.



I figure the draft will come out for those men and women who can't find a job with their $100,000 student loan debt in liberal arts or gender studies can be drafted.

Trump said if Iran attacks any more US targets he will launch attacks on 52 Iranian culture sites, which is a war crime to attack culture sites but since Trump doesn't care and has already been impeached he has nothing to lose.

China attacking for Iran to the USA will shut off the flow of technology products from China really cheap and move them to the USA or some other third world nation.

I think this will cause the US economy to become third world status because of the trade wars.

Trump is so erratic he'll have forgotten about rattling his saber before 7 days have gone by and Iran really has no incentive to enter into yet another war in the region.

What I do find interesting is the speculation that Iran accidentally shot down that Ukranian air liner and that's why UA has stopped all flights to Tehran.

have that software glitch that causes crashes. So it might not be true.
