Israel Presses the Case Against Iran, but Not for War – The New York Times

Israel has just learned that giving the White House the ball may not be the smartest idea. John Bolton is there. So is Donald Trump. Would you give them control over anything? Apparently the American voters did. That is too scary by far.

Israel has quietly played an instrumental role in the escalating tensions in the Middle East. But analysts say it wants to pressure Iran, not start a war.

Cotton says America would win war against Iran in ‘two strikes’ | Fox News

Is Sen Tom Cotton right? Is he certifiable? Across the hard right, politicians are beating war drums. Iran is our enemy. Iran supports terrorism. Iran is backing Yemen. Iran, Iran, Iran.
A lot of this is hogwash. Iran did not take down the Trade Center towers. Saudi Arabians flew those planes. Iran held a mass prayer for the victims in a soccer stadium. Bibi Netanyahu cheered, or so we are told.
There is a schism between the Shia and Sunni Moslems. Iran versus Saudi Arabia. Israel wisely plays each side against the other. That weakens both of them.
Donald Trump has no grasp of foreign policy. John Bolton does, but he is also certifiable. There are no rational thoughts in the White House, unless winning in 2020 is a good reason to start a war with Iran.
The loud fear mongers you are hearing are putting us on the same path that ended in a war with Iraq. The new weapons of mass destruction are being imagined as we speak, in twisted minds that have no regard for the consequences of their deceit.
