The question is, why now? There are obviously already major tensions between many many Middle Eastern countries and the United States, not to mention the danger of terrorism, so why stoke the fire?

Our new administration will learn that believe it or not, there are consequences and the US cannot simply do whatever it wants in international affairs.
