    Moving Embassy to Jerusalem Raises Tensions in the Area

    Trump is a fucking idiot and if you voted for him, so are you.

    Days after President Donald Trump pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal, tensions in the Middle East have spiked sharply, raising concerns that the pending US Embassy move to Jerusalem will further ratchet up conflict with unpredictable outcomes for the Middle East.

    For weeks, the State Department has been working to bolster security at US diplomatic posts around the Muslim world in advance of the embassy move, anticipating possible violence even as administration officials say the issue no longer galvanizes the Mideast the way it once did. The embassy move, they say, will eventually lead to greater regional stability.

    But the embassy transfer, set for Monday, will come just days after Israel and Iran traded blows across the Syrian border, firing missiles at each other Wednesday and following up with bristling threats in a steep escalation of tensions.


    The US decision to abandon the nuclear accord and recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital has made a combustible region -- one with four ongoing conflicts -- potentially all the more explosive, some analysts said.


    "In this highly tense situation, we've now poured gasoline on the fire by removing the Iran nuclear deal, which provided some semblance of constraint," said Bruce Riedel, a former CIA officer who now directs the Intelligence Project at the Brookings Institution.

    Some things are worse than others and this was one thing that is much worse. Trump has absolutely no idea what he's doing. he doesn't understand issues like this. hillary has a deeper understanding of world affairs than he could EVER have and would NEVER have pulled such a boneheaded move.

    You're proving a point I've made repeatedly, support for Trump isn't about his policies, it's about pissing people off that you disagree with. Most of the people who voted for Trump did so just to give liberals the finger. And now they support this stupid move just because it pisses Muslims off. You people are so shallow and transparent.

    I don't find your xenophobic "joke" funny.

    The never Trump movement died the day he was elected because conservatives get to do all the horrible things they always wanted to do with him in office.

    xenophobic? LOL Palis are savages. Sorry, thats just the way it is. No tame citizenry would elect a terrorist org that straps bomb to their children to kill innocent people eating breakfast to lead them.
    Can you please just answer the question? Yes or no is all that is required.
