The UK is waking up to the news that Iran has launched a series of ballistic missile attacks against US military bases in Iraq – less than a week after Donald Trump ordered the killing of Iranian general Qasem Soleimani.
Trump’s action look like they they could provoke a full-blown war. While this is terrifying, it’s also massively ironic, given that Trump warned in the past that former President Barack Obama was on the brink of leading the US into WW3. For the record… he didn’t.
In August 2013, the orange-faced real estate mogul tweeted: “Be prepared, there is a small chance that our horrendous leadership could unknowingly lead us into World War III.”
As we reported last week, Trump also once tweeted that Obama would purposefully start a war with Iran “to get elected”.
With the next US election less than a year away, it seems as though Trump doesn’t think this is such a bad idea after all.
