Lot less fun speculating about a war, when you are literally next door, rather than two continents away.

Still, I think the chances of war are pretty high. Trump has basically pushed the Iranians into a situation from where there rapidly are becoming only two options, surrender or take chances with war.
History rarely has people choosing option "A". But, you never force an adversary into option "B", unless you are ready and prepared for war and the U.S manifestly isn't.
