Another false flag. The first one was not enough, clearly. It won't be too much longer until Pompeo trots out "intelligence" showing Iran was responsible and we commit more troops or get seriously involved in yet another war. The pattern here is so obvious it is trite.

...game over in 30 days.

You should know Khuzestan already tried to secede once. This time, they can declare independence and get it.

US now controls 80% of Iran's oil and natural gas, all Iranian ports are blockaded, all air travel is shut down, the Iranian government has no means of collecting any monies for anything.

Iranians have no electricity, no water, no food, no gasoline, no diesel, no transportation, no work because there's no electricity, water or commerce, and nothing to do but fight government forces.

If you thought US troops would be running around Iran, you thought wrong.

US troops don't have to do a damn thing, except sit in Khuzestan and watch Iran implode.

If the Balochs rebel and demand independence, then it sucks to be the Iranian government.

If the Kurds in the northwest rebel and demand independence, then it sucks twice as much to be the Iranian government.

With no food, no electricity, no running water, no gas, no diesel and no money, and all the rail and highway infrastructure torn up, and with the people revolting, the only thing the Iranian government can do is embrace the suck.
Another cakewalk?

And an empty campaign promise.

Oh, that's right, it was sold to a foreign power, and is not called Boo-Yang.

False flags are easy to do.

There is no threat from Iran.

They are not that stupid.

Also, never trust a General - they are in the chain of the command of the propaganda machine.

Remember Vietnam.

Remember, Peter Pace, the propaganda Chairman of the Joint Chiefs during the Iraq II lie.

They are frauds.

Thanks to Trump dishonoring the nuclear deal with Iran, they are ramping up uranium stockpiling.

How about we remove our troops from the region and reduce the threat risk to 0.0.

No.
Its like if someone decides to commit a crime and and their bumbling friend gets talked into helping them. They both get charged with the crime.

Those who voted for Trump and did not think he would start a war simply don't know who he is. Trump fights with everyone and anyone. Thin-skinned, mean and vindictive. Then add Bolton and Pompeo--due to Trump 'picking the best people" and an explosive combination. They are chicken hawks. Pompeo and Bolton are hawks, and Trump is a chicken.
