INSANITY SQUARED: Does Trump Have Any Idea Why Iran is Escalating?

On the heels of President Trump's last minute order to halt an attack on Iran, CNN reports that the president is considering more sanctions against Iran!

"We have additional avenues of sanctions pressure to impose. We have got additional sanctions for sure," a senior administration official told a small group of reporters Friday according to CNN. "I would not say that the President is thinking about military options. The primary thing we're thinking about is additional sanctions."

Just who is providing Trump with the idea that more sanctions are a sound alternative to an attack?

Does the president even realize that the Iranians are escalating because of the sanctions that are already in place against their country?

What could possibly be the reaction of the Iranians to further sanctions other than even more escalation against the United States?

Trump is in way over his head with advisers that want war.

The most heroic thing Trump can do is remove the sanctions and start bringing the ships, sailors and soldiers home.

There is no sound reason for the US to be ignoring the advice of George Washington in his farewell address:
The great rule of conduct for us in regard to foreign nations is in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political connection as possible...
The only danger we face in the Middle East is by those countries that egg us on to get involved where we don't belong.
