In a column for World Net Daily Pat Buchanan warned President Trump about a war with Iran.
President Donald Trump cannot want war with Iran.
Such a war, no matter how long, would be fought in and around the Persian Gulf, through which a third of the worldâ€™s seaborne oil travels. It could trigger a worldwide recession and imperil Trumpâ€™s reelection.
It would widen the â€œforever war,â€ which Trump said he would end, to a nation of 80 million people, three times as large as Iraq. It would become the defining issue of his presidency, as the Iraq War became the defining issue of George W. Bushâ€™s presidency.
And if war comes now, it would be known as â€œTrumpâ€™s War.â€
For it was Trump who pulled us out of the Iran nuclear deal, though, according to U.N. inspectors and the other signatories â€“ Britain, France, Germany, Russia, China â€“ Tehran was complying with its terms.
Buchanan does have a point here. A war with Iran would undoubtedly become the main part of Trump’s Presidency. No longer would he be able to hammer home immigration. No longer would he be able to focus on his trade war with China. All Americans would see is Trump starting a war with Iran.
If Iran forces Trump’s hand then he will have no choice but to go to war. His goal, however, should be to keep Iran at bay and their regime on the brink of being overthrown by there own people.
