National Security Advisor Michael Flynn responded by saying Iran is on notice. What could this mean? A return to sanctions or even military action?
Pat Buchanan wrote an op-ed about this development with Iran in The Coming Clash with Iran. One of the conclusions he made was,
“Wednesday’s White House statement makes a collision with Iran almost unavoidable, and a war with Iran quite possible.”
I believe Mr. Buchanan comes to a logical conclusion about a coming confrontation with Iran except for one: it will be no “clash” but the next step in the end of the age, i.e. the Second Signpost.
Trump surrounding himself with generals and hawks seemed to be a sign that the US might trigger the Second Signpost with military action. We may have just witnessed the Trump administration’s first move toward that end.
