Trump has pushed U.S. toward war with Iran

On May 8, President Trump announced plans to leave the Iran nuclear deal.

President Barack Obama derailed the rush to war on Iran with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. President Donald J. Trump just put it on track again ("Trump pulls U.S. out of Iran deal," May 9). Believe your own eyes: war between Iran and the United States is once again a very real and palpable possibility. For President Trump, military action against Iran would be a projection of his ego, more a notion than a reality. But he's just the man to gain from the very real divisions and chaos that war would foment — you know that's true.

It's incumbent on all Americans who dread such a war to act accordingly. The time is now. Speak up, write, educate, organize. Don't wait for better minds in the Trump administration to prevail. Believe your gut; the worst is upon us and the time for wishful thinking is over.
