Trump and Iran
Donald Trump and His Ill-Advised Threats
Donald Trump has been tossing threats Iran’s way and normally when he does that to any other country or worldly leader we know why.
This time however, it is unclear as to why Trump wants to wage a Twitter war with Iran.
What is well known is, as Trump’s already overinflated ego continues to grow with each new rampage, he is also destroying our established relationships with foreign states.
This president will go down as the president who alienated America from the rest of the world.
Iran is not a country that takes kindly to threats, insults and our president’s childish tweets. Not to mention the fact that Iran has a highly talented cyber army that they began amassing around 2005.
In 2013 Iran was thought to be the 4th biggest cyber power among the world’s cyber armies, a claim supported by the Israeli Institute for National Security Studies.
That was back in 2013 it now 2018 and while America has taken somewhat of a backseat in terms of having a cyber army, other countries have most certainly not. Especially Iran.
Everyone is worried about Russia compromising our power grids, we should be more concerned about Iran’s cyber abilities.
Donald Trump should sit back and think about that the next time he has the urge to wage a vicious twitter attack on Iran and its leaders.
As with North Korea, this is a war that Trump, simply will never win.
