I thought this bit about Iran was something that would fade into obscurity. I was too optimistic.



I know Trump would LIKE to invade Iran, but I'm sure the joint chiefs have let him know that that is one war he would not only not win, but kill a few dozen thousand Americans before he realized it--not to mention the hundreds of thousands of Iranians he wants notched on his six-gun.

My only consolation--and hope--is that Republicans have usually been cowards. They talk big and swagger, but they only really attack countries they THINK won't shoot back (Iraq was a miscalculation, not a departure from S.O.P.). No one is under the illusion that Iran would not shoot back.

2. Trump's idea war:

Invade and bombs away. No American casualties. We leave in triumph, leaving behind a martinet government that is controlled by the WH.

3. He might as well wait for Godot or the tooth fairy.

But it would be no use to point that out to him, of course.
