War with Iran

John Bolton, Trump’s National Security Adviser, wants an US war with Iran. No one is sure why, but my guess is that having blundered into a failed war with Iraq, he wants another chance to wage a successful war. Donald Trump wants a war, any war, to distract us from his Russian collusion and to unite the country behind him. However, Iran is the wrong target. Even a short successful war, highly unlikely, will cause insurance rates for crude oil shipments originating in the Persian Gulf to sky rocket.That will cause gasoline prices to rise dramatically and may cause lines at the pump. A bad idea all around.

Trump must go
