I don’t think Spain wants to be, in any way, shape or form, part of Bolton and Trump’s military actions in the Gulf against Iran. So they’re pulling out right now before Bolton, the guy who just itches for war, and Trump, the guy who loves to threaten, get soldiers killed.
Now, as I posted in another thread, I’m hoping this is simply just Trump threatening as he always does. I hope he’s as using our soldiers to try to make somebody else back down and not really going to invade or bomb anyone.
I’m not exactly sure why he’s not doing this to North Korea too though. They seem more crazy than anybody.
Of course not. When was the last time Spain was called on to risk anything? When things get dicey, they get the hell out of town. Iran has been directly or indirectly killing Americans for decades. Including military members. If something goes down in the Gulf, who do you suppose will fire the first shot?
