US military bases surrounding Iran. Who is threatening whom?

A few days ago the Trump Administration announced that it will send an undefined number of U.S. troops to Saudi Arabia in response to the Yemeni Houthi drone attack on Saudi oil installations, this in response to the war crimes that the Saudis and until recently their allies, the United Arab Emirates have been committing in Yemen. Although the Houthis have publicly claimed credit for it, Washington is blaming Iran.

Stakes seem to get higher and higher. Danger of war seems even more pronounced today than it was a month ago when we last met. Some mainstream voices are urging caution…however, there are others that are pushing for war, actually cheering for it and in fact the worse the war the more content they appear to be.

Among those pushing for  such a war are those referred to as Christian Zionists.. Who are they, what do they mean by “the rapture” and why are they – along with the Bolton types, the Israelis and the Saudis trying to push the Trump Administration into an armed confrontation with Iran?

As the specter, the momentum for war becomes more vivid, more and more unstoppable, who are these Christian Zionists, how influential are they in the Trump Administration and why is that they are actually cheering on such a potentially devastating scenario.

    The mere existence of fundamentalist humans portends an unhappy ending to the human experiment unless rationality can assert dominance
