Trump orders 1,000 more troops to Middle East over Iran fears


>>Ed: MOMENTS AGO THE PENTAGON AUTHORIZED ADDITIONAL 1,000 AMERICAN TROOPS TO THE MIDDLE EAST IN RESPONSE TO GROWING CONCERNS OVER IRAN. WHERE TENSIONS HAVE BEEN MOUNTING. TODAY IRAN MOVED TO INCREASE THE URANIUM ENRICH. LEVELS AND BREAK THE STOCKPILES LET BY THE OBAMA NUCLEAR DEAL IN THE NEXT TEN DEALS. THIS COMES ON THE OIL TANKER ATTACKS IN THE GULF OF OMAN THAT THE U.S. SAYS IRAN IS BEHIND. HERE LIVE IS THE TOM COTTON OF ARKANSAS, MEMBERS OF THE ARMED SERVICE COMMITTEE AND AUTHOR OF “SACRED DUTY: A SOLDIER’S TOUR AT THE ARLINGTON NATIONAL CEMETERY.” THANK YOU FOR COMING IN.>>THANK YOU, ED.>>Ed: HOW SERIOUS IS THIS TONIGHT, THE PRESIDENT AND THE PENTAGON AUTHORIZING 1,000 MORE U.S. TROOPS TO THE MIDDLE EAST?>>ED, THIS DEPLOY. IS A PRUDENT MEASURE TO BUILD UP THE FORCE PROTECTION POSTURE AND THE PERMANENT BASE BASES LIKE QATAR AND BAHRAIN. IT WILL HELP WITH THE SURVEILLANCE FOR THE STRAIT OF HORMUZ AND THE GULF OF OMAN AGAINST UNPROVOKED ATTACKS ON THE COMMERCIAL SHIPPING ON THE HIGH SEAS THAT IRAN CONDUCTED WITH THE TWO TANKERS OR IN A PORT LAPS MONTH AGAINST FOUR TANKERS.>>Ed: BEFORE THIS ANNOUNCEMENT, THE “NEW YORK TIMES” SAID IN AN EDITORIAL THE INCIDENT IS THE LATEST EVIDENCE THAT THE UNITED STATES AND IRAN ARE ON A COLLISION COURSE. AT A MOMENT THAT HARDLINERS ON BOTH SIDES HAVE LITTLE INTEREST IN ANY DIPLOMATIC OFF-RAMP. I WONDER WHAT YOU THINK IN THE NEXT 12 MONTHS WE WILL BE TALKING ABOUT A HOT WAR IN THE MIDDLE EAST?>>ED, IF THE UNITED STATES AND IRAN ARE ON A COLLISION COURSE IT’S ONLY BECAUSE IRAN CONTINUES THE 40-YEAR LOW-LEVEL WAR AGAINST THE UNITED STATES TO THE POINT OF PROVOKING RETALIATORY MILITARY STRIKES. LET’S REMEMBER THE AYATOLLAH SEIZED POWER IN 1979 AND IMMEDIATELY INVADED OUR SOVEREIGN SOIL AND HELD HOSTAGE FOR 400 DAYS. IN 1997-1998 IRAN DID THE THING THEY ARE DOING NOW. ATTACKING COMMERCIAL VESSELS IN THE PERSIAN GULF AND IN THE STRAIT OF HORMUZ. TO THE POINT THAT RONALD REAGAN HAD TO CONDUCT RETAILTARY STRIKES — RETALIATORY STRIKES. WHAT IRAN DID WARRANTS RETALIATORY STRIKES AND IT IS UP TO IRAN IF THEY WANT TO BEHAVE LIKE A CIVILIZED NORMAL NATION AND WHETHER THEY WANT TO CONTINUE TO CONDUCT THE ATTACK.>>Ed: YOU LAID OUT STUBBORN FACTS. NANCY PELOSI, PROBABLY DOESN’T SURPRISE YOU, DISAGREES WITH PROBABLY ALL OF IT. LISTEN TO WHAT SHE SAYS.>>HE COMES IN AND UNDOES THAT. ENFLAMES THE U.S.-IRAN ISSUE. WHY? WHAT IS THE PURPOSE? I’M NOT GOING TO ACCUSE ANYBODY OF INSTIGATING ANYTHING BUT FOR NOT HAVING A POLICY THAT WOULD SMOOTH THE WATERS, SO TO SPEAK. I THINK HE PROBABLY KNOWS THERE IS NO APPETITE FOR WAR AMONG THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.>>Ed: I IMAGINE YOU KNOW SHE SAYS, “HE” SHE IS TALKING ABOUT THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. SHE IS SAYING HE INFLAMED THE SITUATION BY TEARING APART THE OBAMA NUCLEAR DEAL.>>ED, I HAVE TO SAY I’M SURPRISED AND DAYS POINTED THAT NANCY PELOSI SOUNDS LIKE SHE IS SIDING WITH THE AYATOLLAH A FEW DAYS AFTER THEY ATTACKED THE COMMERCIAL VESSELS IN THE OPEN SEAS IN THE GULF OF IRAN. OMAN. IRAN HAS ENGAGED IN THIS, FOR MANY YEARS. AFTER THE OBAMA DEAL THEY WERE STILL SUPPLYING THE REBEL PROXYIES WITH MISSILES TO ATTACK SHIPPING VESSELS AND EVEN AMERICAN VESSELS. THEY CONTINUE TO SUPPORT THE TERRORIST GROUPS. THEY CONTINUE TO SUPPORT ATTACKS ON AMERICANS IN IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN. THIS IS THE SAME ATTACK THAT KILL 500 AMERICANS IN IRAQ. IRAN IS SEWLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE — SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE TENSION IN MIDDLE EAST. IF THEY WANT TO WATCH IT DOWN THEY CAN BEHAVE LIKE A NORMAL NATION. IF THEY DON’T THEY WILL FACE THE FULL MITE OF THE AMERICAN MILITARY SOONER OR LATER.

  1. Yep the criminal fake potus needs to start another war to try and cover up his treason…..attacking Iran would be like attacking Indiana…..you wanna impress me then attack China or Russia….picking on these tiny third world countries just makes us look like the evil empire.

  2. Here we go again, another Republican president another war. How many Americans will die this time in the name of protecting our allies and world peace??

  3. who's gonna pay for the wall in Iran?,…… America!
