2013: Remember what I previously said--Obama will someday attack Iran in order to show how tough he is.
Literally every decision Donald Trump has to make is decided by him asking himself: "How can I benefit personally from this?" I believe that issues of ethics or morality have absolutely zero weight in his thinking, and his actions are only ever tempered by what he feels he can get away with.

It's clear that the idea of an opinion poll boost from going to war will be in Trump's mind, and that is the most dangerous factor in this Iran affair.
