You heard it here first:
If Trump escapes Russia-gate (his base doesn't care either way) he not only will run (his re-election campaign has already started) he will win. If he starts a war against Iran, that will stir up not just his base but many conservatives/Republicans as well, he will not only win the electoral college, he will win the popular vote. That the country will be in a bigger mess will not matter to his base and to the majority of conservatives/Republicans.
Murican's love their wars...until they don't. Unfortunately they tend to realize they don't love war until after they reelect the President that got them into it.
All Donald has to do is look back at Johnson and Bush II if he wants to get reelected. It worked out well for them in the short term, but was catastrophic for them in the long term. The only (and very scary) difference is that Donald doesn't give a shit about the long term.
I'm also far less worried about Iran than I am North Korea. Either would be catastrophic wars that would result in the deaths of millions of human beings, but North Korea is a nuclear state with a standing army of 1.9 million people that has another 7.7 million reservists.
A war with North Korea will truly test Murican's love for war, especially once their ICBM's start raining down on major US cities.
