For the US administration it appears now is as good a time as any to start a major proxy war with Iran inside Iraq.

Or perhaps the distraction of yet another Middle East war is just what the doctor neocons ordered at a moment the United States and the world for that matter faces its biggest crisis since World War II in the form of the expanding deadly pandemic.

Wednesday afternoon the president tweeted out this stunner: "Upon information and belief, Iran or its proxies are planning a sneak attack on U.S. troops and/or assets in Iraq. If this happens, Iran will pay a very heavy price, indeed!"

To be fair....if the US actually wanted regime change in Iran.....this is the time to lob a number of missiles at the remaining shit bags in power and let the iranian people form their own government

Obama f***ed the iranians so so badly in the green movement/revolution......

Just go watch "Wag the Dog" and it will all make sense.

Can you tweet a sneak attack???? Isn't that like the NYT filling in all of the answers to the crossword puzzle for you?
You can't if you're the one sneak attacking, but if you suspect someone is going to sneak attack you (Iran), then announcing that you are aware of the potential attack could actually defuse the situation. That is, unless Trump ordered the soldiers to act surprised as they mow down the attackers.

Hard to argue that the US couldnt be considered weak right now, especially with all the news of that carrier wanting to disembark everyone over covid.

I'm sure americas enemies are figuring how to use the current situation to their advantage, and that means intelligence reports will start coming in. Whether it is actionable or not, that's a different story.

I see this being akin to a mother yelling at her kid in the kitchen to get out of the cookies- the picking looks good right now but that doesnt mean there won't be repercussions.

The power of Trumps tweet is that they know that he will do it.

Agreed.

Ship movements, location, and crew readiness used to be classified information for that very reason. Even if it did get out we were always reminded that it’s still classified and wasn’t to be confirmed.

this might be a Wag the Dog thing, but the other way around. The IRANIANS might think they are about to be overthrown by their own people...and are willing to go to war with the great satan to save their personal asses.
