Whole Lotta Foofraw about Nothing

Trump, Bolton, tinfoil hats, slandering Iran

The latest bout of bloviating, hyperventilating, lunatic raving about the "malign behaviour" of Iran is based on—literally—nothing!

While Trump et al are apoplectic based on some "intelligence" they've got from Mossad about Iranian intentions, news medium AXIOS actually quoted that "intelligence." Here it is:

It is still unclear to us what the Iranians are trying to do and how they are planning to do it, but it is clear to us that the Iranian temperature is on the rise as a result of the growing U.S. pressure campaign against them, and they are considering retaliating against U.S. interests in the Gulf.

So, it's really quite nothing! Basically Mossad's saying the Iranians are mad because of what we've been doing, and if we were they we'd do something about it, so maybe they will, but we don't know what.

Break out the missiles, it's an emergency!!!
