News reports that outgoing US President Donald Trump actually contemplated bombing Iran’s nuclear facilities after indications that Tehran might have gone over its processing limits are very disturbing and have very understandably caused shock and horror all over the world. Granted, the president is very upset about losing the election. And it may seem a little embarrassing, to Americans and others, that he’s being such a bad loser but he’s still well within his legal rights to dispute the outcome and there are laws in place to address just such deadlocks. But for him to risk starting another war in the Persian Gulf that would surely spiral out of control just because people not voted for him the way he would have liked is just going too far and there must also be some rules to stop a president who’s bent upon acting like an enraged elephant rampaging across the jungle just because he stepped on a thorn.
