    Whether Iraq was a cluster doesn't change that we casually tossed the regime out like it was a carton of spoiled milk, and proceeded to hunt down most of the senior leaders until even Saddam Hussein was dangling.

    Those are the stakes you are playing with if you want to try to shut down the world's oil supply. You can certainly gamble, but if you pull up a deuce instead of an ace, you lose the ball game.

    Will Iran try to play the same game to cost Trump the election? Probably not, since it:
    A. won't drive up oil for long after all their crap is blown up
    B. will result in Iran losing a lot of crap including whatever pity points they are currently getting
    C. will probably backfire and give Trump a rally-'round-the-flag effect by blowing up Iran's stuff
