I expect Dump to start a conflict or war


This is what "leaders" do when they get enough push back from their citizens.

It gets everyone to shut up, "come together", support "their country" and it enriches the military industrial complex. A win win for them.

It worked for Iraq. 75% approval at the time.

3. didn't W once say that America has never voted a president out during wartime?

I don't feel like looking it up, but do seem to recall that he was quoted as saying that.

7. Guaranteed

 

The republican MIC will demand a sacrifice of the poor kids caught in the economic draft.

All those million dollar missiles and other super expensive munitions and weapons of war will have to be replaced at a horrendous cost of course.

The dead and maimed are not a concern to the draft dodger-in-charge and the bloody MIC.

8. I doubt he'll do it intentionally.

He's more likely to do it out of either incompetence or sheer assholery.

The most likely sequence of events in my opinion is:

1. screw over Iran on the recent deal to end their nuclear progam

2. Iran resumes nuclear progam

3. Trump bombs Iranian nuclear facilities

4. Trump shocked, just shocked, when Iran retaliates in some fashion

5. Clusterfuck in Iran.
