Iran wants war. Time for us to fire off some Patriots and Apaches.

Eh, yea, depends on the targets though, how about EVERY electric plant in iran?? and those close by also, and of course all the air shafts and entrance/exit/tunnel to that nuclear 'research' facility under some mountain.....within about two daze or less, iran ceases to exist.....because NO WATER in the cities/towns...
Air traffic haults without electric power, so does .com of any type, so does shipping, so does pumping oil....
no traffic signals, taking away all the nice **** WE built for them in the last 100 years or so.....

One thing seems pretty clear. Iran is on a collision course with forces it cannot stand up to.

This is not good . Iran said they were going to do it and most likely did do it .
Remember some of Irans Zealots believe only a bloody war will bring out their Maddi signaling a takeover of the world .

If the American forces are allowed to "take their gloves off", for a change, the Iranians will be getting far more than they bargained for.

If they want some of THEIR blood to get spilled, I'm pretty sure that the American forces can see that it happens, and I'm good with it....as long as it's all done by air, and NOT American troops scattered around on the ground, in harm's way.

If posturing comes to fighting, Im fairly sure Trump will let the military do whatever they want.

Wait...what?

What are you going to fire the Patriots at? Have the Iranians started lobbing ballistic missiles on some ground based target? And you don't fire off Apaches, you fly them.

Lol.
I was just thinking that exact thought.
This looks like a reversal day for oil.
WTI is up about 4.5% right now.

That's what I both think, as well as hope. I think the Iranians might still be "stuck on Obama", and that might be a big mistake for them.....

Remember the Gulf of Tonkin incident.

Let's not jump to conclusions.

Could be a rogue CIA "wag the dog" operation to draw attention away from the evolving Russiagate Hoax investigation. I wouldn't put it past them.
