Trump’s dangerous Iran posturing

President Trump is ending 2020 the same way he began this awful year — by ratcheting up the possibility of a stupid and unnecessary war with Iran.

The New York Times reported this week that the president — in between rounds of golf and tweets falsely claiming to have won the election — had asked his senior advisers about the possibility of taking military action against Iran during the waning weeks of his term, to retaliate against that country for growing its stockpile of nuclear material that could potentially be used in a bomb.

Trump’s aides reportedly believed they had dissuaded him from launching a missile attack against Iran, but the president “might still be looking at ways to strike Iranian assets and allies, including militias in Iraq, officials said.”
