When fools rush in where angels fear to tread ...

Now lets think about this, Trump, the "leader" of the free world, blows off the detailed findings of the Secretary of Defense, the military and the intel communities regarding the validity of the Iran deal in favor of a really lame PP presentation by the prime minister of Israel containing previously released info from the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) regarding Iran, complete with VHS tapes and a wall of dvds supporting the case that Iran is locked and loaded, ready to incinerate the world at a moment's notice with nukes if we let her do this, without a shred of verifiable proof, something truly foolish as Trump's reckless act raises the specter of a totally avoidable war, something these informed agencies told Trump about prior to him pulling out of the deal.

With this truly excellent move, the US is now allied with Israel and Saudi Arabia against Iran. Nobody else, just us three. The question to ask is, who benefits as Israel and Saudi Arabia really want the US to do the heaving lifting in attacking a country that, like Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria and Yemen, has never posed a threat to the USA. With this in mind, the answer is rather obvious, Israel and Saudi Arabia benefit while the US gets hosed yet again in committing to a disastrous venture along the lines of Nam or W's war with Iraq save for the monies given to the MIC for conducting something as stupid as this but there's a catch.
  1. Boeing had a big sale pending with Iran to sell passenger airliners. Well, that's gone with Airbus getting the benefits. People in AL are going to love that deal.
  2. Oil prices are going up, just in time for summer.
  3. Contrary to the Donald's thought process, the reinstatement of sanctions will make Iran's government more radical not less as we reneged on the deal, not Iran.
  4. Forget working with China or Russia or the world as we cannot be trusted to keep our word on anything regarding foreign relations.
  5. Trump is praying to god that the NK deal doesn't blow up after this "wise" decision regarding Iran. Question, do you really think Jong Un will give up his nukes given what the US did to Libya and Iraq? 
Awesome is it not that our MAGA genius knows everything about everything while us rubes remain clueless and in awe of how this great leader conducts business for the good ole USA.

Adding a touch of farce or used car salesmenship is this ...

Would you buy a used car from this guy?
