 including on its energy sector, 

Until more alternatives to burning so much oil and gas are used throughout the planet, expect the globe's competing empires (US, Russia, China) and states with large reserves of oil and gas (Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, UAE, Qatar, etc.) to keep the world's defense industries, funded by everyday taxpayers, rich and powerful.

Expect more wars fought over oil and gas.

Expect more health problems from breathing oil and gas fumes.

Expect climate change related problems to occur.

One step more towards war. I don't know how long it will take, but it is coming.

The entire US military is not a terrorist organization but there are many individuals who are terrorists in the military.

So? Donald Trump is the one who makes the decisions, not Bolton. He doesn't want war with Iran, he wants to open hotels in Tehran.

@serrano he wants to open hotels in Tehran.

I agree. Trump's using his presidency to expand his global property empire, as Jared and Ivanka are using their privileges as WH 'employees' to get richer, push the trump brand name and acquire more trademarks.

But it's pretty likely without 'regime change' in Iran, Trump's businesses are stuffed. And regime change can most likely only come after some form of military action.

Most of the world already knows US military are terriorists. But that is NOT precisely true. Soldiers are just doing their jobs and following orders. They are not to blame. The ones that give the orders and create the conditions are the real terrorists. Both military, and political leaders.

You are right, Trump wants to use his position as president to further fill his pockets and expand his company rather than take care of the country.

This is what happens when America wants to do regime change. If Bush W. did not remove Saddam Hussein, Iran would have an adversary in the region. W is the worst U.S. president in modern history.

Don't know why this post should get any downvotes. It's just a straightforward description of the way things work, and where the blame for official state terrorism lies, given the chain of command in a democracy.

Yes, they certainly are more terrorist than Iran's Revolutionary Guard.

[US] Soldiers are just doing their jobs and following orders. They are not to blame. The ones that give the orders and create the conditions are the real terrorists. Both military, and political leaders.

Perhaps, but I have trouble believing that they would be so intellectually challenged to not realize that they are being used for evil goals by their leaders.
