After the 2015 international agreement known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA, placed strict limitations on Iran’s nuclear program, the war drums abated for a while. But now they are beating again.

John Bolton, President Donald Trump’s national security adviser, has long advocated a more hawkish US policy toward Iran. In a 2015 op-ed, he openly supported bombing Iran’s nuclear facilities.

Soon after joining the Trump administration, Bolton asked the Pentagon for military options to strike Iran. Earlier this week, unnamed Trump administration officials — possibly looking to develop a legal rationale for a military strike — suggested to reporters in The Washington Times that Iran is providing sanctuary to senior al-Qaida operatives.

Now I understand why we pulled out of the treaty, rather than trying to adjust, improve, or negotiate about it literally at all — we’re gonna bomb them! Can’t be bombing people you’ve got treaties with, after all.

Speaking of bombs, boy I sure hope this doesn’t have anything to do with this OTHER link I sent a while back:
