Is Trump about to repeat George W Bush’s worst mistake?

Yes, especially the greatest and bloodiest one, listening to the Prime Minister of Israel.

No, the problem isn’t that simple.

What you’ve said is right out of Netanyahu’s fantasy playbook.

Good God, what does Israel have to do with any of this?

Here, the answer is simple. Netanyahu wants Trump to hurt Iran. In return, he’ll support any activity Trump likes, including making the most threatening and inappropriate speech in the UN’s history.

They were the words of a street thug, and Netanyahu praised them as brave.

By the way, whenever we speak of illegal nuclear weapons, weapons causing terror for all neighbors in a region, it is absurd to ignore Israel.

Somehow, it’s okay for Israel to have 150 nuclear weapons plus medium range missiles that can reach most of the capitals of Europe plus submarines, some of which have been jerry rigged to carry a nuclear missile?

But North Korea, which the US literally flattened in the 1950s, killing a full twenty percent of the entire population, is evil for its far more limited number of weapons?

As does every knowledgeable official from the chief UN expert to the President of France.

These stupid charges about Iran are owing solely to Netanyahu.

He is upset how things have gone in Syria, so he is ready to attack Iran.

Not for any claimed threat – there is none, Iran never having attacked anyone – but because Israel wants to completely dominate its region, just as the US dominates much of the world, and Iran is now a serious competitor.

In fact, the Saudis assisted the Pakistanis with big money in developing their weapons.

There is an agreement under which the Saudis can get some number of weapons if they feel threatened.

But even more unfortunately, it isn’t just Trump.

American presidents cannot alone start war.

Look at the leaders of the Congress, pretty much a group of disastrous characters, all of them beholden, under America’s money-drenched election system, to the lobby representing Mr. Netanyahu’s interests.
