      Our president will start a war with Iran because he has absolutely no ability to negotiate. He’s weak and he’s ineffective. So the only way he figures that he’s going to get reelected — and as sure as you’re sitting there — is to start a war with Iran.–Donald J. Trump, 16 November 2011

      Yep. The Orange Imbecile tweeted this several times, and even said it live on the air when he called into the Laura Ingraham radio show. So clearly, the idea was in his otherwise empty head.

      I then considered it merely the ravings of a maniac, no more worthy nor capable of explanation than the incoherence of our own nightly dreams.

      Trump the Unoriginal, is pulling a page out of George W. Bush’s book, “How to Stay in Power by Starting a War!”

      Tim O’Brien – connected with the Bloomberg campaign, would have been cheerleading this effort if a Democrat was in the Whitehouse.

      It’s not just Trump. This goes beyond Donald Trump.

      The GOP does not want peace with Iran…and one reason is because our biggest allies in the region are Iran’s enemies. The Saudis hate the Iranians and blame them for the mess in Yemen. The Kuwaitis hate them. And most importantly the Israelis hate Iran. Meanwhile the Iranians are in bed with the Syrians and the Russians and developing nuclear weapons.

      Not to mention our problems with the current Iranian regime go back to the overthrow of the Shah.

      This is why the GOP scuttled the Iran deal. The GOP never wanted that deal. They do not want peace with that country.

      Well, Trump was wrong and right. Obama, while trying

      to get the nuclear agreement with Iran, did get us into

      Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and  Ukraine. Now you may

      call these color revolutions, but they were either wars or

      coups. Where Trump was wrong as well was that Obama

      tried to use this for election purposes; instead he played

      down all of these events. He even refused to send money

      for weapons to Ukraine. After all, who were the Ukrainians

      going to war with?

        @sadoldgirl Trump only delayed sending money for weapons to Ukraine in order to blackmail their president into announcing an investigation of Joe Biden, and then when it became public he released it. He did not refuse to send those weapons in the interests of peace. Let’s keep it real here and not make him sound any better than he really is.

        Plus, Trump has not withdrawn all American forces from a single country they were in when Obama left office, and is now actively trying to get Iran to do something to justify a full-scale war. Trump’s every bit as much of a warmonger as Obama ever was.
