Sen. Cotton, Penpal to Iran’s Mullahs, Speaks!

Deep Thoughts From Tom Cotton

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.”

One question remains.

      He is also living proof that Harvard and its law school are not great universities anymore and are running merely on name recognition and a healthy trust fund.

    can’t help but notice, while practically everyone else just says ‘iran’, ol’ senator q-tip has to throw in ‘islamic’, while it may be the full name of the country to emphasize they’re ‘the other’. he wants that immediate first strike? i just wanna know if he’s going to volunteer to be one of the first to go.
