President says he’s ‘locked and loaded’ to attack Iran
As President Trump warned that the US is “locked and loaded” to respond to the drone attack on Saudi Arabia’s oil supply this past weekend, Senator Rand Paul warned that hitting Iran would be a “big mistake.”
Appearing on CNN, Paul warned that any attack on Iran would constitute a “needless escalation” of war.
“The Iraq War, President Trump has said, was the biggest geopolitical blunder of the last generation,” Paul said.
“It destabilized the Middle East and increased the strength of Iran and tipped the balance toward Iran,” the Senator added.
Paul also had stern words for Rep. Liz Cheney, who earlier in the day proclaimed that the US should deny visas for Iranian diplomats at the United Nations General Assembly meeting this fall.
“There was nothing good about the Iraq war and Dick Cheney, Liz Cheney and John Bolton still don’t get it. They are still advocating for more regime change in the Middle East.” Paul declared.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo declared unequivocally Saturday that Iran is behind the attack:
We call on all nations to publicly and unequivocally condemn Iran’s attacks. The United States will work with our partners and allies to ensure that energy markets remain well supplied and Iran is held accountable for its aggression
