    Trump's been calling it for months if not more than a year. He stated that Obama would use war with Iran as a political tool. Americans historically are hesitant to replace a president during war (FDR, Lincoln, Bush II).

    Trump had been stating that the USA could play hardball and end Iran's nonsense at any moment. But he said Obama might only do it for the sake of improving his political standing.

    WASHINGTON — The Obama administration and its European allies plan to open new negotiations with Iran by demanding the immediate closing and ultimate dismantling of a recently completed nuclear facility deep under a mountain, according to American and European diplomats.

    They are also calling for a halt in the production of uranium fuel that is considered just a few steps from bomb grade, and the shipment of existing stockpiles of that fuel out of the country, the diplomats said.

    That negotiating position will be the opening move in what President Obama has called Iran’s “last chance” to resolve its nuclear confrontation with the United Nations and the West diplomatically.


    This was the exact situation when Obama took office. What's changed? He's up for re-election.

    And; where was this hard talk when the Israeli PM was visiting about a month ago? What changed? Why could he not show solidarity with Israel?

    The war with Iran will be a political too no matter who prosecutes it.

    It'll be politicized no matter what. All American wars since Vietnam have been. However, Obama himself is playing politics with people's lives and that should concern anybody.

    Lame.

    Obama needs a war that kills hundreds of thousands in order to reduce the number applying for each of the 11 jobs that might be created between now and November.

    Yes, Trump is an acknowledged authority on international affairs and the history of the American presidency.

    Tell us who these so-called acknowledged authorities are. Were the OWS crowd acknowledged authorities on economics?
