It’s like this guy has Tourette’s syndrome or something.

President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani on Saturday said that U.S. sanctions on Iran are leading to economic pain that could lead to a “successful revolution,” contrasting with administration comments that government change in Tehran is not U.S. policy.
“I don’t know when we’re going to overthrow them,” said Giuliani, who spoke in his own capacity though he is a Trump ally, at an Iran Uprising Summit held by the Organization of Iranian-American Communities, which opposes Tehran’s government.
“It could be in a few days, months, a couple of years. But it’s going to happen,” Giuliani told a crowd at a hotel in Times Square.
After these comments became public UN AMbassador Nikki Haley pushed back hard.

United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley shot down the assertion by President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani that the US was plotting a “successful revolution” in Iran.
“The United States is not looking to do a regime change in Iran,” Haley told CNN’s “State of the Union.” “We’re not looking to do regime change anywhere.”
So the problem here is that while the Trump Administration has an official policy that seems not totally insane, Trump’s human bullhorn is telling the entire world what rump really wants behind the scenes.
Nowif you were Iran how long would you be willing to trust the denuclearization deal that the previous administration made with you, not to mention any new deal that the Trump Administration might propose?
Look I am not a fan of the current regime in Iran, but this is the kind of loose talk that suddenly results in Navy ships being targeted in the Persian Gulf and diplomats kidnaped out of their hotels in Tehran.
And that may be exactly what Trump is hoping for so that he can start his own never-ending war because nothing distracts from low poll numbers and news about Special Counsel investigations like American troops headed off to brand new war in the Middle East.
