Obama will attack Iran because it's good politics

Trump in a thirty second clip tonight says Obama will attack Iran before the election because he likes the politics of it. Trump adds that Iran has overplayed its hand as Khadaffy and Saddam before.  (The low motivations of US politics will catch the blustering mullahs by surprise.)   Donald Trump performs a service, putting this kind of plain talk into public discourse.

An American president has the most independence in foreign policy.  This is where he can make the most news back home with the least bi-partisan teamwork.  I'd like a freer Iran but this rush to war that has filled the press in recent wakes gives me only foreboding.
