Will War with Iran Be the Result of a Poorly Planned Trump Doctrine?

Ahmed Charai at The National Interest - 10 hours ago
*Ahmed Charai* *Security, Middle East* [image: U.S. President Donald Trump applauds during his first State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress inside the House Chamber on Capitol Hill in Washington] Will Trump realize that the Iran threat is bigger than a deal he considers poorly negotiated?

Whether it was really Sandburg's advice or not -- online quote attributions are notoriously unreliable -- this seems to be the Trump/Giuliani strategy right now: Josh Marshall watched udy Giuliani on Sean Hannity's show last night and doesn't think it's much of a strategy: What you have are a half dozen brainstorms cooked up by a group of old men in a room used to bending reality to their purposes when something goes wrong.

Peter at Bayou Renaissance Man - 10 hours ago
I'm hard at work editing the first book in the "Cochrane's Company" trilogy, "The Stones of Silence", for publication in a few days' time.

*“Robert Mueller: Gone Fishing”* By Ray McGovern and Bill Binney "After a year of investigating whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia, Special Counsel Robert Mueller has, in effect, admitted that he has hit a dry well. He is under strong pressure to keep the charade going until the November elections, however, so he and his high-priced legal brain-trust have devised a new tactic. One would think they could come up with something less transparent. After all, Mueller was FBI Director from 2001 to 2013 and knows where the bodies are buried, so to speak.
