Has Trump started a huge conflict?

Trump has ordered the killing in Baghdad of a top Iranian General. Knowing the psyche of the Iranians and remembering the time the US Embassy there , some years ago, was attacked, I would not like to be an American diplomat in Iraq or Iran at the moment,

I meant , of course, the Iranian US embassy years ago . A major retaliation seems inevitable

For someone that doesn't want to be militarily involved in middle eastern conflicts, this is a strange action.

If he's wise (which he isn't), he'll resist the urge to gloat over it.

The Donald just running true to form, I reckon.

But, hey, not to worry - come Brexit we'll be heading to become his next new State. With Johnson as his local 'governor' - has the world gone crazy?

Trump appears to be unable to comprehend the consequences of his actions. The man's a lunatic

Has Trump started a huge conflict?

I think not, the Iranian organised attack on the US embassy was I think a clear indication that covert hostilities have been under way for quite some time. Has the Pres responded in an appropriate manner ? Hell no but what did you expect from the Trumpster.

The strike conducted in Iraq "went forward with no notification or consultation with Congress," House Foreign Affairs Committee chairman Eliot Engel said in a statement.

No wonder he's getting impeached, a loose canon with anger management issues and a nuclear button. Scary combination, particularly as huge chunks of the American electorate seem to love the combination and I for one will not be putting money betting against him winning a second term.

Maybe just waiting for Iran to retaliate before he sends the troops in.

Probably just waiting for an excuse to do that and iran will have to think twice before retaliating.

You cant just stand by and see your Embasey's being ransacked and do nothing.

For every action there will be a reaction.

Can't help thinking, after he failed to get anywhere with North Korea, that a war with Iran and a glorious victory, is his next attempt at achieving something big, so he can go down in history as a big success, the biggest success the world has ever seen!

We should be worried in case we end up being taken into a war along with the US - there is history here!

Here we go again Trump the warmonger !

Cast your mind back to when he first took office , I used to put my tablet on and use the bbc news app whilst eating my breakfast waiting to see who he was gonna threaten today. At that time he had threatened military action with at least 4 countries.

It is common knowledge that he shoots his mouth off every day on twitter and then he leaves his staff to answer for what he has tweeted.
