I don't even care anymore. In fact, I'm all for it now that I think about it. War with Iran will only speed up the collapse of this nation on several fronts.
First, the leftists will lose their shit because its a republican doing it, so they'll be in full 'nam mode and throwing a hissy fit, protests and riots and physically attacking anyone on the right for being "violent" (naturally the hypocrisy will be lost on them). Further destablizing the general social cohesion of the country when its already showing so many fracture points already.
Second, the country just cannot afford the debt associated with another war, and the allies of Iran (china specifically) would drastically cut down buying US debt, if not stop completely, making our situation even worse. Sure, they could print money and loan it to themselves through the fed, but this is going to cause inflation to ramp up pretty harshly. Sure UE rates and so on have been improving, but the general financial wellbeing of the country as a whole has not really improved. Home ownership isnt really going up, debt is still sky high for individual citizens, and so on
So to pay for it would cause increasing inflation, knowing that wage increases CANNOT keep up with it right now, is only going to make the financial situation worse for the average citizen. Though this may in fact be A goal they have. Increase inflation, but hey everyone has jobs, so as long as we dont redo poverty lines, we wont see people back on the dole because they'll have incomes above that, even if their purchasing power decreases and they struggle to pay bills and buy food, oh well you have a job so screw you just deal with us fucking the economy up even worse!
You may be thinking "well war means more production and is usually good for business," its really not, not anymore anyway. The vast majority of our population dont work in any industry associated with those things, and much of it is automated or highly specialized now anyway, so any extra money those contractors make will pretty much just go in the pockets of the owners and thats it, not that we even make that much anyway, its all about quality/impact over sheer quantity now.
Which is just going to make people even MORE likely to be out in the streets protesting, leading to more clashes between left and right, more social tension, less trust in government, more anger at the (((money masters))) and so on.
The only way around that is to escalate the conflict to such a degree that china and russia get involved, then invoking the draft, and sucking up half the country to go fight the war (mostly sending them off to be killed intentionally), which will just push the country even further left in the end, and more towards communism. But those who remain here will find themselves in a position to actually break away from this shithole finally, because there will be such chaos and destabilization, that who is really going to stop them? They're going to be so busy dealing with protests and trying to deal with soup lines and ultimately the politicians are going to be focused on moving towards communism as rapidly as possible, that they arent going to be able to maintain control over the entire country.. if somewhere like, say, the south decided to leave in the middle of the chaos… how could they even be stopped?
Regardless of how it ends up happening, I think perhaps this can work to our benefit in the long run. So I don't care if it happens or not. We all know we're getting war one way or another, they've wanted it for decades now, and they've finally got a puppet just unhinged enough to do it for them, so here we go
