Donald Trump is a loose cannon in more ways than one — an extremely dangerous one. Most of the grownups in the White House are gone, and the president appears to be able to slip through the holes between the handful of those left. It looks like POTUS is trying to take us to war.
A report showing what Trump has been up to “rattled” State Department and Pentagon officials. The Wall Street Journal reported that the president sent the Pentagon a request last September, asking for various ways the U.S. could launch its attack on Iran.
‘As part of the talks, Mr. Trump’s National Security Council, led by John Bolton, asked the Pentagon to provide the White House with military options to strike Iran. The request, which hasn’t been previously reported, generated concern at the Pentagon and State Department, current and former U.S. officials say.’
A former top U.S. administration official said:
“It definitely rattled people. People were shocked. It was mind-boggling how cavalier they were about hitting Iran.’
The Wall Street Journal continued:
‘Former U.S. officials said it was unnerving that the National Security Council asked for far-reaching military options to strike Iran in response to attacks that caused little damage and no injuries.’
Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said this about America in a speech:
“Iran is a country that adheres to its commitments, and the US is a country that has never adhered to its commitments.”
