Default Do you think an American strike on Iran is imminent?

Trump may have covered his rear when he visited north Korea.

I doubt he'll do too much. He's usually been anti-war, he won't want it hanging over his second term, and it will piss off American First types.

Neither side wants a war and both sides know that.

The risk is that Iran underestimates the US and makes a move so bold that the US has no option but to retaliate.

Meanwhile the UK has its own issues with Iran now and We’re sending another war ship.

Let’s hope it doesn’t kick off because a war with Iran would literally set the whole Middle East alight.

I think - I hope - people fully understand all the implications of what's at stake before anyone starts with the air strikes.

Oh jeez, the migration crisis is bad enough in Europe, if anything resembling war does kick off the borders would need to be aggressively defended.

Yeah, god forbid there is a war. People might get blown up and maimed, but the biggest issue would definitely be those seeking asylum from the torture all around them

The problem with Iran though is they wont have many allies in the Middle East

It's suspicious that trump doesn't go over and visit them, off the cuff.

If it does go all nuclear on us...can we promise to see it out on here.

You'll be shooting them or simply letting them drown?

Trump once said that he believed Obama would start a war to get re-elected because wartime presidents rarely lose elections and I fully believe that Trump would start a war just to stay in office because the second he hasn't got that presidential protection, he is ****ed.

A lot of the democrats are sitting on their hands when it comes to impeachment and I've read that it's because they want to bleed him out with charges after he's left office.

The best thing that can happen now is that Mitch McConnell doesn't prevent the bipartisan bill to ensure Trump can't attack Iran without consent of the house and senate otherwise the US (and us by extension) will be heading to war with Iran before long.

Trump is a Business man.

Look at his Weak Missile Attack on Syria
No Deaths

I don't think people need to worry about mass immigration in the event with a war with Iran because the people will have been nuked. If there were to be a war with Iran it wouldn't be a conventional war, Iran would be nuked

bit offtopic but still on topic related to that bit of your post well if anything there won't be a war in Hungary because of refugees, since there are none in there thanks to evil nasty sexist/racist pig peter orban

but because of that orban i don't think Hungary is a good place for tourism either, him and his vile xenophobic thoughts
