The definition of a warmonger - a person who encourages or advocates aggression towards other countries or groups. And Trump & his lackeys surely have done so many times in the past few years.
Let me try to understand this.... the Trump/Bolton Axis of Bulls**t
is trying to convince us that the Iranians would target a Japanese oil tanker at the very moment that the Japanese Prime Minister was sitting down to friendly, US-disapproved talks in Tehran on economic cooperation that can help Iran survive the effects of US economic sanctions;
...that Mike "Trump-was-sent-by-god" Pompeo immediately claimed Iran was guilty, ignoring the fact that Iran would have nothing to gain. An attack on the oil tankers would be much more to the benefit of Saudi Arabia, Qatar or Israel;
...and that, despite the presence of the USS Bainbridge and innumerable P-8 aircraft, and a range of intelligence assets to draw upon (all of whom are undoubtedly trained on any Iranian operations in the area), we did not see or hear about any operation that would have led to the explosions. I recall a senior C.I.A. official who said we have the capability of reading a license plate from our satellite surveillance.... yet, like two of the infamous three monkeys, saw and heard nothing?
We know now the Iranian's were actually the nation that rescued the crew and, if the boat in the extremely grainy and unconvincing video was indeed Irantan, may have very well been disarming and removing the alleged mine (and since when are "mines" attached above the waterline?). Ironically, despite our heavy US presence in the area, their is nothing to show when they were placed there - or, if there is, it is being hidden.
Maybe our Narcissist-in-Chief is starting to realize his dismal poll numbers are real... and believes Bolton's cries for a war would help shore-up his support. I think not - but who knows what the man who won't even read his daily intelligence reports believes.
Considering who is in charge, these are indeed scary times...
