So weird, not long ago, Iran was in compliance with the nuclear deal and we were not on the verge of war. Then Trump (who is facing a difficult election next year) mysteriously pulled out of the nuclear deal (despite Iran’s being in compliance with the nuclear deal) and applied (somehow Trump found the time despite being preoccupied with the election next year) sanctions and pressure on Iran (did I mention the country was in compliance with the nuclear deal?), provoking predictable responses just a year before Trump is up for re-election – did I say that before? Now we are on the verge of war with Iran. It’s almost like, I don’t know, the whole backing out of the nuclear deal was just a chess move toward going to war with Iran for some reason.
