It will take a while for Trump and his crew of recycled neocons and neo-neocons—converts of the MAGA variety—to realize their perverse dream of overthrowing the mullahs in Iran.
An outright invasion is out of the question. While an invasion effectively overthrew Saddam Hussein and prepared the way for destroying Iraq, that event was preceded by more than a decade of medieval sanctions that killed over a million people, including 500,000 children. In effect, Iraq was a third world basket case with a broken military long before George W. Bush and his neocon marauders invaded.

During the election, I wrote a little ebook titled “Donald Trump’s War on Islam.” In addition to pointing out Trump’s pandering to Islamophobia, I wrote about his association with a number of neocons, including Frank Gaffney and John Bolton, who is now his national security adviser. “I think John Bolton’s a good man,” Trump told the Hugh Hewitt Show.
“I watched him yesterday, actually, and he was very good in defending me in some of my views, and very, very strong. And I’ve always liked John Bolton.

But we are seriously thinking about it.”

It looks like Bibi Netanyahu and the Israeli Likudites—after all these years of pushing—will finally get their war.
Naturally, they are seeking US support. They can’t do this on their own. It’s too big of a job, same as taking out Saddam Hussein and Iraq.
Here’s how it will probably play out.

In his charming and inimitable way, the Donald has threatened to attack Iran if it restarts its civilian nuclear program.

On Friday night, I thought Trump’s Syria attack would turn out to be one of two things.
Either a devastating blitz that would take out Bashar al-Assad, his government and military, and leave the Syrian people in the same condition as the Iraqis after Bush’s invasion, or it would be al-Shayrat 2.0, basically a lightshow and a few broken things that on a grand scale are basically insignificant.

Fox News, the network President Trump wakes up to every morning before he begins his now legendary tweets, has posted an op-ed by Robert Charles, a former assistant secretary of state for President George W. Bush and a former naval intelligence officer.
Mr. Charles writes Trump had all the constitutional authority needed to attack Syria on Friday.
