    Iran is not Iraq. Trump should tread cautiously here because a war with Iran with be much more costly - in terms of lives lost and money - than our other military ventures in the Middle East. Yes, the US needs to respond to Iran’s acts of aggression. But that’s better done with clandestine measures to oust the mullahs. It’s a shame Obama didn’t take advantage of the green revolution in 2009. Yet another foreign policy blunder. I hope Trump does not go to the other extreme.

    Iran is finding ways to attempt to hold the United States and Europe hostage for economic aid by scare tactics about breaching the nuclear stockpile cap. Tensions throughout the world seem to be mounting rather than de-escalating. At least China did not escalate the situation in Hong Kong.

    The ayatollahs need to learn to stop making useless threats. Secretary Pompeo likes to consider military force. Where are the adults in this playground. Back in the day the question was " what if they had a war and nobody came?"

    Both sides are showing a callous disregard for human life, even the lives of their own soldiers.
