Now, Trump adds to the list by not only continuing sanctions but also by outright killing a top Iranian military official, undoubtedly an act of war if the situation was reversed and instead, Iran assassinated a US General.
Iran and its massive oil reserves have been on the US target list for decades, even long before Bush labeled them as part of the so called "Axis of Evil" back in 2002. This obsession with Iran crosses party line, as most US wars of aggression tend to, with both Democrats and Republicans repeating various propaganda talking points about Iran (i.e., "Iran wants/is building nukes") and/or supporting outright acts of war against Iran.
Consider that Iran is not only a trading partner with Russia and China, but also considers them strategic allies. Just last month, the three countries held joint naval exercises in the Gulf of Oman. To suggest they might get involved if tensions escalate is barely an exaggeration.
And so when we ask ourselves what war with Iran looks like, we're not just talking about a US war with Iran, but the very real possibility of a US war with Iran and its allies - and consequently, a war with the US and its allies.
It's not difficult to see where this road leads, but it may already be too late to stop heading in that very catastrophic direction.
