Re. Rump doesn't want conflict with Iran-BULLSHIT!!!! He just doesn't want the responsibility.

They're playing bad cop/worse cop with the U.S. and our allies.

2. He wants to have it both ways

He wants to be hawkish and at the same time reasonable and not-so-hawkish. He equivocates on issues and policies all the time. He leaves himself a deniability out in case things don't work out to his advantage. There's always an out to say, when questioned, that he said A, or he said not-A.

3. War is complex....

...he doesn't want anything complex. And he doesn't know how to gain from this either, so the easier way is just ignore it.

7. Donald wants to prove he's a man...

but he doesn't seem able to pull it off. Has he actually fired anyone in his administration? Seems like he always get someone else to do it for him. He's like a walking disaster area, leaving lawyers in his wake to clean things up.

9. That reminds me of Don Henley's "End of Innocence"

"Lawyers clean up all details......"

11. When folks start emphasizing how they don't want to go to war...

that's when I start to worry most.

It's basically Dad saying, "I hate to do this but you're making me do it" as he undoes his belt.
