The Fibler says:

lol……this sounds STAGED. Its FAKE. Its typical Trump DRAMA!

Orbit Tech News says:

Hmmm… "…Backed Down?" You'd think that headline would read, "President prevents WW3."

Alireza Yousefi says:

Im from iran our government wants a war cause its near its end and with war they can live longer exactly like iran-iraq war i hope there would be no war cause only normal people would waste as soldiers that have to go to a war for nothing

David Mortaz says:

Trump has trashed American intelligence apparatus and now wants to use them to start a war! The sad part is that the same hawks who got US into the Iraq war, now are selling him on another war! He needs congressional authorization for war

Pablo Xanadu says:

WHY IS TH MEDIA HYPED ABOUT WAR? FOR ONCE THE UN-INDICTED FELON DID SOMETHING RIGHT , THOUGH FOR A WRONG REASON. HE IS NOT CONCERNED ABOUT LOSS OF LIFE – HE I WORRIED ABOUT PETRO-DOLLAR NATIONS, AND HIS JOINT INVESTMENT WITH SAUDI ARABIA. NO NATION CAN EVER TRUST USA AFTER IT RENEGED NUCLEAR DEAL.

Somkit says:

1:02 He really is one of the strangest looking people on the planet.

Diane Owen says:

Hello America. Do you feel comfortable and safe knowing a complete incompetent and bumbling 'administration' under the 'leadership' of a tweet triggered dotard is deciding the life or death of your youth?

Michael Harris says:

This man need to go playing games they going mess around and start a war and then it will be everyone else fault but his. This is very serious.

Cecilia Martin says:

Easy to start a war when you know that anymember of your family and relatives will go there.

bill b says:

Wipe them off the map now

Garry Miller says:

We had a nuclear deal with iran. According to Trump's own administration Iran was in compliance. Trump broke the agreement like the child he is and now it's come to this. Trump is a failure and his supporters have failed this country.

Amara Jayne says:

solving another problem he created and gambling with people's lives like it was just another real estate fraud scheme #deplorable #warmonger #waggingthebase #whistlingfakestength

Mohan Sivasankaran says:

Next time trump may order a nuclear strike impulsively. That will be the end of the human civilization as we came to know in the last 200 years or so.

caroline yartey says:

President Draft Dodger Bone Spurs is trying hard to start an unnecessary, unwarranted war. Whose kids is he counting on to fight and die? Must be Ivanka, Don Jr, Eric and Barron and those we don't know about. America does not need another war. A drone is not worth any human sacrifice.

Keith Anthony says:

He's sweating now.

Dr M D Aden says:

Man Joe talks a lot he never gives a time to his guests or his wife too , he is one crazy talkative dude .

Wilson says:

Imagine this Admin facing the Cuban Missile crisis. Utter chaos & probably nuclear war !!!

Inda Sticks1 says:

Premature attackulation!

Melissa Graham says:

Trump and family better get their fatigues on!! This is NOT playtime!

Ben says:

Trump is incompetent and weak on foreign policy. You have conflict brewing with Iran, which nearly resulted in war following Trump's foolish decision to pull out of the nuclear deal. Russia are hacking elections and undermining American democracy. Saudi Arabia killing journalists affiliated with American news corporations with impunity. China imposing tariffs in retaliation to Trump's tariffs. European allies like France and Germany are now developing a European payment system to undermine the dollar. North Korea negotiations resulted in nothing other than making Trump look foolish on the world stage. Did i forget anything?

shrek is love says:

Amazing how liberals want to follow Bolton into war.

Mind Funked says:

What biodegrades quicker…drumpf peel or orange peel??

Mind Funked says:

Drump is such a waste of skin..even orange skin!

Dave Keeler says:

Bolton should be sacked at once before it's too late. Bolton already dragged America into the Iraq war which was a needless disaster.. Why let him do it again. Stupid stupid stupid!
