A Major Conventional War Against Iran Is an Impossibility. Crisis within the US Command Structure

Under present conditions, none of Iran’s neigbouring states including Turkey, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, and Armenia would allow US-Allied ground forces to transit through their territory. Neither would they cooperate with the US in the conduct of an air war.

America’s hegemonic military agenda has reached a dangerous threshold.

The assassination of  IRGC General Soleimani ordered by the President on January 2, 2020 is tantamount to an Act of War against Iran.

US Defense Secretary Mark T. Esper described it as a “decisive defensive action” while confirming that the operation ordered by Donald Trump had been carried out by the Pentagon. “The game has changed” said Defense Secretary Esper.

Unfortunately he’s not a very competent gangster, but there are all these people around him (like Mike Pompeo) feeding into his self-image by telling him what a great gangster he is. Now he says he’s going to punish Iraq for expelling US troops by putting sanctions on Iraq. It’s like my grandson threatening to call people bad names if they hit him.
