the only way the Administraion can get the majority of U.S. people to support a war against Iran is if the U.S. Gov blows up a nuke in a U.S. City killing hundreds of thousands, then start blaming it on a terrorist group who's members are in Iran, that is how I truly believe U.S. Gov will get the war in Iran to start.
BUT - Once they came to the enevitable ground war, they would not be able to quell resistance at all.

Jasper, Texas, July 11, (PANW)--Two of the three white men accused of dragging James Byrd Jr., a Black man, to death behind a pickup truck June 7 near Jasper Texas have been indicted on murder charges. The third is cooperating with the prosectuion in the lynching which has horrified the nation.
William Hale, director of the Texas Commission on Human Rights, himself the target of a Klan murder plot, charged that the Klan's June 27 rally was one of several Klan operations in Jasper over the past year. Hale told Newsday, "There are six active Klan groups operating in Texas and two have been particularly active in the Jasper area.
-In 1990, the police chief of the east Texas town of Hemphill, Thomas Ladner, and two sheriff's deputies, Billy Ray Horton and James Hyden, were tried on charges of bludgeoning to death a Black prisoner in the Sabine County jail.
The prisoner, Loyal Garner had been arrested on a drunk driving charge and requested a sobriety test. He was beaten to death instead. All three officers were convicted but Horton's conviction was later reversed.
-In Cleveland, Texas, west of Jasper, Kenneth Simpson, a 30-year-old African American, was arrested in 1988 on charges of stealing a fountain pen.
He, too, was beaten to death in jail by white officers. Half the local police force was suspended but later acquitted of murder charges and returned to work.
