Maj. Gen. Chris Ghika denied the U.S. assertion of an increased threat from Iranian-backed forces in Iraq and Syria

Hear that? People IN THE FIELD are saying there is no threat from Iran. I am so convinced that the Trump administration is going to manufacture a war to keep him in office. Suddenly, in the past three days, every news agency is running with articles that paint Iraq in a bad light. Saudi Arabia appears to be colluding with the Trump administration to whip the U.S. voters into a frenzy of fear and hate.

John Bolton is driving us into another one of his wars. The last one cost $1 Trillion, hundreds of thousands of lives, and over 5000 dead American soldiers. It also destabilized the region and led to the rise of ISIS. All based on lies about of weapons of mass destruction WMD. Remember?

His next war based on his lies could be much worse. Iran is a much more powerful foe than Iraq.
