Umm, the plan is clear and simple.

False flag tanker attacks, drones breaching Iranian airspace, sanctions and cyberwarfare.

Until Iran punches back and then the US will say, look he started it.

The Persian Gulf is not US territory. Get lost and go home.

When Barack Obama was preparing his fight for a second term as U.S. president in 2012, his administration was preoccupied with two big foreign policy crises.

The first was the potential unravelling of the euro zone, which his team worried could cause an economic shock and cost him the White House. The second was the possibility that Israel would launch a military strike against Iran over its nuclear program and trigger a regional conflict with politically damaging consequences for Obama.

That was the main problem with Obama. His main concern was his re-election. Not the American people.

U.S. plan for Iran is unclear

The objectives are clear enough - keep Iran from getting a nuclear weapon. How to go about it is complicated. We don't want to destroy the country. Good thing we have a president who is a stable genius and can play 4D chess.

Who gets to decide which country has nuclear weapons, America? Britain? France? North Korea? China? Russia? India? Pakistan? Israel? Probably even Saudi has a couple of them.

Serrano: "The objectives are clear enough - keep Iran from getting a nuclear weapon."

And from having missiles and from having any weapon with which to resist US dictatorship. Iraq did not have a nuclear weapon and look what the US did. All nations need nuclear weapons while the US continues its dictatorship and global domination.

The US has no legal right or authority to dictate what arms any nation can have. It is because of US dictatorship and bullying that nations are developing nuclear weapons. And with the US establishing a Space Force, another arms race will start.

And yet you support Trump, who is doing exactly what you just criticized Obama for supposedly doing.

Trump doesn't have a plan. Obviously.

Iran is under massive cyber attack from America aimed at military targets like missile systems and radar. They are also trying to plant a virus like the Israeli did and who are currently also cyber attacking Iran.
