End of the American Dream
After the events that we witnessed on Tuesday, there will be no going back to the way things used to be. A cataclysmic war in the Middle East is not going to benefit anyone, but at this point it is difficult to see how one will be avoided. By directly attacking the U.S. embassy in Baghdad, the Iranians and their allies crossed all the red lines. The U.S. embassy is considered to be U.S. soil, and if President Trump does not respond militarily to this brazen attack on our sovereignty he is going to look like a total wimp to the rest of the world. But then of course Iran and their allies will respond to the attack that Trump launches, and the U.S. will be forced to escalate the conflict even more.
