Either the Trump administration is trying to goad Iran into war or a war could come by accident because of the administration’s reckless policies, but the prospect of the current tensions in the Middle East escalating into a serious conflict is now dangerously high. 'Incidents'  ratcheted up tensions as anonymous American officials in the press pointed to Iran as the perpetrator. Tehran has denied this. F our commercial tankers were 'reportedly 'sabotaged off the coast of the UAE.Saudi Arabia said that drones sent by Iranian-supported Houthis attacked Saudi oil facilities.

I remember... how the lies from a US president (BUSH) gave us war with Iraq. Now, a malignant narcissist, a President who has lied over 10,000 times, is using this Bolton strategy, to distract us from his own problems.

BOLTON "s now the most important figure in American national security, and because his position requires no Senate confirmation, he answers to no one but Trump"

That should give you goosebumps!

With the departure of James Mattis as secretary of defense early this year, Bolton is, incredibly, the only senior security official close to Trump who has seen how a normal White House works. Bolton's return to power has allowed him to pursue his great passions in life, which are outmaneuvering his adversaries, foreign and domestic, and getting America out of treaties. ("So many bad deals to kill," Bolton once wrote, "so little time.")

The real dilemma for Trump if he is to allow such madness to go ahead is that America would probably go it alone if it were to strike Iran. The big difference between the Iraq war in 2003 and what's happening today is that Trump has no international allies to support the plan as none is buying the bullshit.

HERE IS THE MAN WHO IS DIRECTING PRESIDENT TRUMP

If you want to know who president advisor BOLTON is...THIS WILL TURN YOUR BLOOD COLD, because this man leads Trump by the nose. Read Bolton's response --his words--at the end of this quote where Wilkerson, lays out the utter destcution of Seoul, So. Korea, (and the devastation of Japan and China) if there is a nuclear war with North Korea.!

These paragraphs are towards the end of piece on Bolton called"On The War Path." John Bolton on the Warpath

HERE IS THE MAN WHO IS DIRECTING PRESIDENT TRUMP

"Shortly before joining the White House, Bolton described a grimly constrained set of options to deal with North Korea, which seemed to preclude diplomacy. "You're getting down fairly quickly to a binary choice: live with a North Korea with nuclear weapons, or look at military force," he said. "These are not attractive options, but that's where we're headed." In fact, Bolton believed for decades that these are the only two choices. In the early two-thousands, as the Bush Administration was negotiating to limit North Korea's nuclear program, Bolton stridently ADVOCATED WAR!

"Wilkerson was so concerned that he brought Bolton into a private meeting on the consequences of military strikes: "I gave him a ten-minute brief on what a war with North Korea would look likea hundred thousand casualties in the first thirty days, many of them Americans. The Japanese that would die. The Chinese that would die. The fact that Seoul, one of the most modern and forward-looking cities in the world, would probably be reduced to the Dark Ages. I told him, 'That's Passchendaele, John. That's Ypres.' "negotiating to limit North Korea's nuclear program, Bolton stridently advocated war. Wilkerson, Powell's chief of staff, was so concerned that he brought Bolton into a private meeting on the consequences of military strikes: "I gave him a ten-minute brief on what a war with North Korea would look likea hundred thousand casualties in the first thirty days, many of them Americans. The Japanese that would die. The Chinese that would die. The fact that Seoul, one of the most modern and forward-looking cities in the world, would probably be reduced to the Dark Ages. I told him, 'That's Passchendaele, John. That's Ypres.' "

Wilkerson said" that Bolton was unmoved: "John looked at me and said, 'Are you done? Clearly, you do war. I don't do war. I do policy.' "

Today, as our warships, and troops move into the Persion Gulf, we see Bolton's POLICY"

After the Israeli murder of 34 US military personnel aboard the US Liberty in a failed effort to trick the US into attacking Egypt, an effort where napalm was dropped and Israeli aircraft attacked in waves to try to sink the Liberty followed by a decades old whitewash, silence and blackout of the cries of the families of the murdered and survivors, starting with LBJ through today - It should be clear who is manipulating the US into a sacrifice of its blood against Iran, don't you think?

After the pompous fat ass Pompeo shuttle diplomacy including spending a couple of days and several hours of ascertaining whether the Russians might go along with a US incursion to control more oil from the Mideast and dissing the Germans at the same time - I think he got his answer. The answer is No! No mofo, No!

As the stupid wasteful expenditure of US treasure by little dick a**holes on behalf of the lying, thieving, murderous elites sending strike groups to the Persian Gulf was taking place, Putin was visiting with aerospace industry officials admiring the long range bombers one of which dropped into Venezuela with Russian military advisors and military hardware not too long ago.

There is a message for the little dick mofos.

If the US foolishly attacks Iran regardless of the fake excuse, there is no question that we will take down the ruling elites...harshly.
