Tensions Btw US and Iran
By Micah Halpern

I've Been Thinking:
Rhetoric is extremely high between Iran and the US. US President Trump says the Iran will "face its end" if it attacks the US. This comes after a missile lands too close to the US embassy in Baghdad.
Israel added that it will not enter any conflict unless it is attacked.
There is a long history of this in war.
The possibility that some underling somewhere, manning a weapons position will take the rhetoric seriously and push the wrong button in response to something is very possible
But discipline is very important. Middle level military leadership is essential. This is where training is so important.
Rhetoric is simply rhetoric. Neither Iran nor the US want to engage they not should escalate based on rhetoric. They need to walk back the tensions.
We need to watch this carefully over the next few days.
