No I don’t. Things are too vulnerable and the Middle East in general is a giant pile of TNT, gasoline and matches. War with Iran is way too risky. Profit to risk ratio is way too high.

Also I would be surprised if Iran doesn’t already have a nuke and I’m sure US leadership suspects the same.

Today I saw a train as long as the eye could see loaded with nothing but A1 Abrams Tanks headed in the direction they head when deploying. I looked on youtube and found a video posted of a similar train, so something seems to be happening.

Winter is coming, could be a deployment for storing them. I wouldnt consider this anything major. Although i did read somewhere recently that 4 or 5 national guard units were just activated for deployment so maybe their is something going on. But i think that was related to europe and Poland specifically.
There is no winter in Texas. When trains go through Houston, they are headed to Beaumont to be deployed over seas. When they are being rotated from NTC, they go through San Antonio. I have only seen these sorts of trains in the early 2000's when they were deploying to Iraq, and during "the surge" and when they came back from Iraq.

Do we believe Pompey or is it possible that he is engaging in deception? “We want a peaceful resolution”, seems more soft than what Pompey would say he wanted to save US face while avoiding conflict in the region.
interesting typo lol.

I guess the question is does it make a difference if an attack comes from Saudi Arabia or the US? I'm not sure Iran will care and the response would probably be the same.

Potentially. Or against American strategic interests at the very least.

That would be a significant escalation. Would Iran really drag the US into it if SA is the only one attacking?

If the sanctions are strangling them to the point that they become reckless, I could see it. The US and SA are allies. We'd be assisting SA with intel and other support assets for any strike against Iran anyway.
