Guesss I'm fake news

Iran was following the nuclear deal, Wcich was confirmed by oversight done by the UN. Since Trump backed out of it, They've started enriching uranium. Threatening to invade countries as frequently as the US does sends a message to other countries that in order to be protected, They need nuclear weapons. What Trump has done is antithetical to national security. Attempting an unpopular revolution in Iran would probably destabalize the region. Look at how the Iraq war led to the creation and prominence of Isis. Whowever takes place could easily be worse, Look at what happened with previous coups in the middle east, Almost none of theme are democracies today.

Well many on the left will compare this to the failed Iraq war, It's much worse. For one, Iran is four times bigger than Iraq, In fact, It's twice as big as Vietnam was when we went to war there. The latter had faced 3 million casualties when the war was over. It could be bigger for Iran. The money spent on the Iraq and afhanastain wars, Whose population combined is less than that of Iran, Was 2. 4 trillion. That is an extrodinarely high ammount of money

In conclusion, War with Iran would be devastating for both Iran and the US

Regardless they weren't a threat to America until we pulled out of the Iran deal, They still (mostly) aren't a threat. If you're contention is that Iranians are bad people, I'd like the see real evidence.
