As I said in a previous column, Donald Trump’s appointments of John Bolton as National Security Advisor, Gina Haspel as CIA Director, Mike Pompeo as Secretary of State and Nikki Haley as the U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. are the formation of a full-fledged War Cabinet. The signs are ubiquitous that Trump plans to take America to war against Iran and Syria in much the same way that G.W. Bush took us to war against Iraq and Afghanistan. All it will take is another false flag attack that can be blamed on Iran.
And now that Trump is up to his eyeballs in legal trouble as an unindicted co-conspirator in ordering his then attorney Michael Cohen to pay hush money to two women Trump had committed adultery with in order to pay for their silence during his campaign for President in 2016, the likelihood that Trump will attack Iran and Syria as a means of taking attention away from his legal troubles grows exponentially. This is a favorite tactic of presidents who are embroiled in serious scandals. Can anyone say Bill Clinton? And here’s the thing: The more war that Trump (or any Republican President) wages around the world, the more evangelical pastors and Christians love him.
