“According to the Washington Post on Wednesday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has delivered a private message to Iran: The killing of just one US service member will lead to an American military response.” Secretary Rapture wants it bad. vox.com/2019/6/20/1869…
“That same Washington Post story notes how Bolton “has dominated Iran policy, keeping a tight rein on information that gets to the president and sharply reducing meetings in which top officials gather in the White House’s Situation Room to discuss the policy.”
“As for Pompeo, he met with Marine Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, the head of US troops in the Middle East, this week to discuss Iran. That’s unusual: That kind of meeting is typically attended by the Pentagon boss, not America’s top diplomat.”
What’s more, he’s seemingly making the case that a 9/11-era law that authorized the US military to fight al-Qaeda and its allies gives the current administration permission to fight Iran too. There is little public evidence that Tehran and the terrorist group are working together
There’s the oil tanker attack, there’s more American military being deployed to the Mideast and there’s the drone flying 10 miles high spying shot down, all signals of a trumped up war. cnn.com/2019/06/20/pol…
