    The writing is on the wall: Now that there are no longer any grown-ups left in the U.S. administration, and they've been replaced by people like Mike Pompeo (who thinks Trump was raised to the presidency by God to protect Israel) and neo-con John Bolton, the stage is set for a confrontation with Iran.

    Trump has already broken the anti-nuke deal that Obama, the EU, Russia and China negotiated with Iran. He's imposed sanctions on Iran and anyone who trades with them. And now a U.S. aircraft carrier, an assault ship and B-52 bombers are on their way to the Persian Gulf.

    Four oil tankers were attacked with explosives on Sunday, though no one claimed responsibility. No one was injured and the damages to the ships seemed to be above the waterline. However, now the U.S. is pointing the finger of blame at Iran ...

    Unless Russia and or China intervene, Iran and the Middle East could soon be in flames.

    ... and here I am, discussing on Facebook with fellow "progressive and enlightened" people who still claim that actually "both parties are the same". Sigh.

    Yemeni Houthi rebels appear to have blown up two Saudi oil pipelines. This is obviously totally and exclusively Iran's fault. The Saudis' war in Yemen where the population is starving to death and keeps getting caught in the crossfire has nothing to do with it, obviously. The Saudis are friends and good allies, you see. Meanwhile, western media has mostly forgotten about this war and moved on to more important news, like the Eurovision song contest final soon to be hosted in Israel :fp:

    The U.S. State department is pulling all their non-emergency staff out of Iraq due to the prospect of war / conflict with Iran.

    Meanwhile, Germany and the Netherlands are suspending their training of Iraqi and Kurdish-Iraqi troops. They've made this decision together with their partners in the coalition, i.e. they've probably been told to do this by the U.S.

    I, personally, am surprised it took Dump so long to come up with an excuse to attack another country, after all, the one single thing that ‘murricans across party lines applauded was his bullshit attack on Syria ...
