Of course they do. 

You know what I think? I think whoever wants a war should go fight it themselves, leave innocent poor young men out of it, just presidents and prime ministers and kings, in a battle of strength and wits. 

I'm ok with it being paintball or laser tag. Nobody has to die, just killing people to take their stuff is stupid and primitive. Humans should have grown beyond that by now.

Latest news from the US indicates Trump is getting fed up with his hawkish advisers (Bolton and others), and does not want any kind of military action in regards to Iran

The US stock market is up considerably in the last couple of days--if war were really a possibility, we would be seeing a major sell-off, and all kinds of investor anxiety

I suspect Trump will dismiss Bolton soon

Two senior intelligence sources said that Qassem Suleimani, leader of Iran’s powerful Quds force, summoned the militias under Tehran’s influence three weeks ago, amid a heightened state of tension in the region. The move to mobilise Iran’s regional allies is understood to have triggered fears in the US that Washington’s interests in the Middle East are facing a pressing threat. The United Kingdom raised its threat levels for British troops in Iraq on Thursday.

I don’t know how much "stuff" Trump actually does himself. I think its his handlers who make all the decisions. Hes just their mouthpiece. It will come down to whatever they tell him to do, but we can all hope and pray you are right, in sha Allah.

Salam both of articles shows their fear from Iran ,that both British & Americans simultaneously spread such lies in name of leaked confident  informations the only truth is that  Americans evacuted their diplomats from fear of any new hostage case like taking hostage of  American Embassy in Iran  or  are trying to show it like a hollywood movie that during evacuation their marines will come to help remained diplomats.

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Commercial airliners flying over the Persian Gulf risk being targeted by “miscalculation or misidentification” from the Iranian military amid heightened tensions between the Islamic Republic and the U.S., American diplomats warned Saturday, even as both Washington and Tehran say they don’t seek war.

Surely it's the Americans who have a track record of incompetence in that department?

An explosion has reportedly taken place near the Green Zone close to the embassy area on Sunday.

Rockets landed in the Iraqi capital in the vicinity of the United States embassy on Sunday, Sky News Arabia reported citing its source.

Iraqi authorities have not yet commented on the incident. However, Reuters cited two Baghdad-based diplomatic sources as saying that they heard the blast not far from the fortified Green Zone — the area that hosts government buildings and foreign embassies.

Ahlul Bayt News Agency (ABNA): Iraq's head of endowment said that the country's people will stand beside Iran in face of inhumane, brutal sanctions imposed by the US.

Iraqi commander: US anti-Iran pressure sign of idiocy

Iraqi commander: US anti-Iran pressure sign of idiocy

 

An Iraqi commander says the United States’ increased pressure and threats aimed at Iran indicate Washington’s “new idiocy” and confusion. 


Referring to the US's ongoing military deployments in the Persian Gulf region, Jazairi said, “America’s new idiocy in the region shows they (the Americans) are yet to learn from past experiences and from history and think... that Iran is a quarry within reach.” 

“All that’s happening,” he added, “shows the obvious chaos in American policies.”


Jazairi said things would proceed in Iran’s favor because the country enjoyed not only domestic unity but also regional allegiances. 

“Should anything happen in the region,” he warned, however, “we will certainly be adopting our own appropriate approach as [part of] the Islamic resistance.” 

Adel al-Jubeir repeats baseless accusations against Iran

Adel al-Jubeir repeats baseless accusations against Iran

 

Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel al-Jubeir made baseless accusations against Tehran at a Sunday press conference. 

He accused Tehran of sponsoring terrorism and interfering in Arab countries’ internal affairs while claiming that Riyadh wants “peace and stability”. 

Saudi Arabia does not want a war with Iran but will respond with strength and determination if the other side decides to start one, he added. 

The Iranian government “is not looking for stability or security in the region,” he said, claiming that the Iran-backed Houthis also were behind a drone attack on Saudi oil installations last week. 

“You're still deluded after 1,500 days, isn't that enough? It's time for you to stop your crimes against #Yemeni people. You can't hide your weakness behind such claims,” wrote Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyyed Abbas Mousavi on Twitter on May 16 in response to Al Jubeir’s same allegations against Tehran.

BAGHDAD—Hard-line pro-Iran militias in Iraq denounced the late-night rocket strike near the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, seeking to distance themselves from an attack that threatens to inflame tensions amid efforts to de-escalate a crisis between Washington and Tehran.

These deceptions are part of a dangerous game being run by Bolton in which Israel is apparently playing a crucial role. That should prompt some serious questioning as to Bolton’s claims and the role of the alleged secret U.S.-Israeli understandings.

The link above gives some detailed explanations as to how the Israelis have been providing the Americans with dodgy intelligence in order to ramp up the military pressure on Iran.

The article below makes the opposite case, that the Israelis are against war, for the following reason:

Mr. Netanyahu in particular, who was accused by some of encouraging the 2003 invasion of Iraq, is loathed to be awarded this unhappy accolade once again.

“My take is that the Iranians saw an attack coming and they prepared to strike back and that caused alarm in the White House and particularly with the president,” said Trita Parsi, founder of the National Iranian American Council, who now teaches at Georgetown University.

“The line sold to Trump by Bolton and Bibi Netanyahu and Mohammed bin Salman is he could strike Iran, show US dominance, and not risk anything. Iran showed it was preparing to strike back. Trump is smart enough to know that a war would be devastating, and not just for his political interests.”
