    Reading a bunch of the articles... i gotta say, something does not smell right about the whole thing.
    Just my opinion of course, but things seem to convenient and coincidental.
    Bolton being a war monger is not helping matters any. Donny believing all the people that are not from intelligence or other countries (allies) that are dealing with them. Instead, he boost (tweets) stuff that has not been confirmed. Now it is threats, which are answered in kind from Iran.

    It is being pushed in that direction.

    Conspiracy theory is all.
    Time will tell.

    Didn't he simply say in essence if we are attacked by Iran we will retaliate?

    Op cit.

    (Bloomberg) -- President Donald Trump said the U.S. has seen no signs that Iran is preparing to attack American forces but he again threatened the Islamic Republic.


    “We have no indication that anything is happening or will happen,” Trump told reporters as he left the White House for a campaign rally in Pennsylvania on Monday. “But if it does it will be met with great force.”

    Remember...there have been two proxy attacks on Saudi Arabia very recently.

    Here is a retired General's comments about the situation.

    Let Saudis and Israel attack Iran with us setting by for support. If need be we provide some guided missiles and air support.

    Good thought. :tu Maybe that is why Trump is moving assets into the ME. If the Israelis and Saudis can't handle Iran we are there to back them up.

    After all...who has the most to lose in the region if Iran obtains nukes?

    Didn't we provide Israel some kind of support when they attacked Iran or Iraq's nuke facilities?

    Not gonna happen. Currently ratcheting up pressure on Iran for at least 3 reasons I can think of. First - Iran Nuclear Deal was a crap deal and needed scrapped. Second - Sunni Triumvirate (Saudi, Jordan, Little Gulf States) want it to happen so we are being a good ally, and Lastly - because it is proxy war that screws with Russia and Syria keeping them off balance.

    Iran's currency and cash reserves are tanking, their economy is poop, and the people feeding them under the table (Germany) are now backing away. Hard for them to be a serious tactical player in Syria, Yemen, and Lebanon when they are pinched.
