God no....he is not capable of being an effective CIC for a war with Iran. We will lose a lot of young men and women if we go down that road.
Iran is not like that, at all. There is nothing 'artificial' about Iran. It is a VERY cohesive nation-state, a distinctive culture that has been in existence now for more than 2500 years, dating back to the Achaemenid Persian Empire founded by Cyrus the Great.
Going to war with Iran would be an even BIGGER decision than our very fateful decision to invade Iraq in 2003. And we know how that turned out.
