Trump's instincts are right...we should not attack Iran...

via Washington Post.
The Trump administration has been on high alert in response to what military and intelligence officials have deemed specific and credible threats from Iran against U.S. personnel in the Middle East.

But President Trump is frustrated with some of his top advisers, who he thinks could rush the United States into a military confrontation with Iran and shatter his long-standing pledge to withdraw from costly foreign wars, according to several U.S. officials. Trump prefers a diplomatic approach to resolving tensions and wants to speak directly with Iran’s leaders.

Disagreements over assessing and responding to the recent intelligence — which includes a directive from Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, that some American officials interpret as a threat to U.S. personnel in the Middle East — are also fraying alliances with foreign allies, according to multiple officials in the United States and Europe.

Trump's instincts are right.  We shouldn't attack Iran. Not for Iran's sake but for our own.

Additionally he should dump Bolton ASAP.

I don't know how these Neo-Cons keep resurrecting from the dead but someone needs to drive a stake thru the heart of that movement.  Some say Trump shattered the Republican party.  They're wrong.  Neo-Cons did.

Regardless, a purge of that sect needs to happen immediately...starting with Bolton.  He's another of those clowns that never saw a war he didn't like.
