When the prznint was a black guy and negotiating a nuclear arms treaty, as you might recall cake-eating uncouth jug-eared Senator Tom Cotton (R-Tehran) was writing letters to Iran undermining the Prznint. Today? Not so much:
From Cotton’s interview on Face the Nation:
Margaret Brennan: You have long been defined as a hawk on Iran. You see these recent attacks, these are commercial vessels not military installations. What kind of response is warranted?
Senator Cotton: Well Iran for 40 years has engaged in these kinds of attacks going back to the 1980s. In fact, Ronald Reagan had to reflag a lot of vessels going through the Persian Gulf and ultimately take military action against Iran in 1988. These unprovoked attacks on commercial shipping warrant a retaliatory military strike.
Margaret Brennan: Are you—you’re comparing the tanker war in the 80s to now and saying that that’s the kind of military response you want to see?
Senator Cotton: We can make a military response in a time and in a manner of our choosing. But yes, unprovoked attacks on commercial shipping warrant a retaliatory military strike against the Islamic Republic of Iran.”
