Israel passed White House intelligence on possible Iran plot

Quote:
Israel passed information on an alleged Iranian plot to attack U.S. interests in the Gulf to the U.S. before national security adviser John Bolton threatened Iran with "unrelenting force" last night, senior Israeli officials told me.

You have totally not been paying attention.

In his first two years in office, Donald Trump launched 238 drone strikes in Yemen, Pakistan, and Somaliaóway beyond what the ĎDrone Presidentí Barack Obama did.

Oh Bolton is so scary....he'd just love a war he could wallow in...

Restraint is hopefully in the vocabulary of both nations as far as any intervention.

Does the US really have an interest? No. The US is just doing what Saudi Arabia wants it to do.
Trump has a personal interest in lining his pockets with Saudi money.

Remember how WWII really started? Yep choking off Oil to Japan.....now we have the USA choking off Iranian Oil, which they have a full 100% right to sell on the world market.

Now we have ships (tankers) under attack in the straits. Trump and Pompeo will serve us up higher oil prices to go along with the stock crash and whatever war he gets into.

MAGA.

No wonder countries in that part of the world cannot get their act together and actually accomplish anything. Other than create and endure human misery.
