'Slouching toward another Middle East war has been a disgrace, shot through with the twisting of truth or outright lies. This is what happens when you take a serious subject, treat it with farcical superficiality, believe braggadocio will sway a proud and ancient civilization, approach foreign policy like a real estate deal, defer to advisers with Iran Derangement Syndrome, refuse to read any briefing papers and confuse the American national interest with the Saudi or Israeli.' Now Trump has approved, only to reverse, a retaliatory strike for the Iranian downing of an American drone... The U S does not need the war with Iran that Bolton &  Pompeo seem determined to deliver. It would be a war of choice, illusion and irresponsibility. It would place Americans at risk across the Middle East, with no benefit to the United States or its allies. '

"Worse than a crime, a mistake," are words often attributed to Talleyrand, Napoleon's chief diplomat. Trump should not stumble from the everyday outrages that are his political staple into catastrophic error in matters of war and peace."

Imagine if he had this weapon at his disposal.

A hypersonic prototype now under development in the U S flies at speeds between Mach 15 & Mach 20 - more than 11,400 miles per hour. Putin has likewise claimed that one of Russia's new hypersonic missiles will travel at Mach 10 & Mach 20. If true, that would mean a Russian aircraft or ship firing near Bermuda could strike the Pentagon,800 miles away, in 5 minutes. ' While it might not be too late to change course, history shows that stopping an arms race is much harder than igniting one. And Washington at the moment is still principally focused on "putting a weapon on a target."
