Trump’s Iran speech may have higher ratio of falsehoods to truth than Colin Powell’s famous speech to the UN Security Council re Iraq.— Stephen Walt (@stephenWalt) May 8, 2018
Make no mistake: The way Trump just started his speech right now made it abundantly clear: He's paving the way for a major war with Iran.— Trita Parsi (@tparsi) May 8, 2018
Killing the #IranDeal is just a first step in that process.
And, hey, why not go for regime change in Venezuela at the same time?
Amb. Haley first to call for regime change in Venezuela. “It’s time for Maduro to go”.— Franco Ordoñez (@FrancoOrdonez) May 8, 2018
Also from Trita Parsi:
War With Iran Won’t Be Iraq All Over Again. It’ll Be Much Worse. HuffPost 03/30/2018
I'm feeling the 2002 nostalgia, and not in a good way. A build-up to war with Iran in the fall could make a huge difference in the midterms. Because too many Democrats will try to weasel around opposing the war on the theory that, something or other. It's just the Democrats' default position.
