Who said he would start a war with Iran to cover his tracks, who said that 2 years ago?

I know I did, I bet a few of you also did.

8. Talk of war with Iran has been talked about for over a decade now

"War With Iran

Posted on August 29, 2007

For months we at Antiwar.com have been monitoring the situation between Iran and the United States, parsing the words of administration spokesmen for any hints of when and how hostilities between the two countries might begin. We’ve been running reports from insiders saying that the Cheney faction is pushing for an attack, that Bush is quite amenable but is biding his time, and that an assault on Tehran is imminent. "

"Chances of War With Iran Just Went Up

Sep 22, 2012

President Obama had been doing an admirable job in recent weeks of keeping the chances of war with Iran from rising, notably in rebuffing Bibi Netanyahu's efforts to get America to lower the threshold for a military attack. But on Friday the chances of war rose, and that's Obama's fault. "

9. I don't think he'll actually start a war

Bad for business and Trump is Wall Street's president.

All he has to do to distract is shuffle military assets from base to base and play jingo tough guy for his base and he gets a twofer - loud distraction from his other scandals and keep his hardcore supporters waving flags and hooting.

He already plays this game with bomber deployments around NK and cruising warships through waters contested by China.

10. Before you can spit out your gum he will start a war if he thinks it will protect him OR

make his base happy.

Hillary Clinton tells a London audience she's worried that President Donald Trump could in 'a moment of pique' launch a nuclear missile.

12. You don't think he'd do it if he thought it would distract from an impeachment?

Really?

13. I said war, but didn't specify where

I was really leaning NK for awhile there, but middle east should have seemed more realistic. How much do I owe you for that bet?
