    I don't really think he is or he would have used the opportunity when the Iranians shot down our drone. I'm glad he didn't and hope he doesn't.

    I hope you are wrong. IMO it is very immoral to initiate a war on foreign soil.

    Iraq problem was much more complex, but oil price definitely was on the list of consideration plus Iraq played with petrodollar.

    If Trump really wanted a war, why would he wait for a pretext? He doesn't seem to be the kind that gives a **** about world opinion.

    It is not the war they want, they all want to keep our diapers permanently wet.
