After Iran’s attacks on oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman, what should be done? Well, definitely not nothing. How can we sit back and let terrorism win?
Pirates of Tehran by @BretStephensNYT. He warns, "We sank Iran’s navy before. Tehran should be put on notice that we are prepared & able to do it again." https://t.co/Ldcj0Nkfua— Lenny Ben-David (@lennybendavid) June 16, 2019
It's not the Iranian Navy of the regular forces (Artesh) that's the danger. It's the Rev Guards' Navy pic.twitter.com/XjHsqmL0ky
It is not the first time that Iran has struck non-war vessels, and it probably will not be the last. Iran’s attacks are unprovoked and unwarranted. Whatever the reason is behind these piratical ways, it does not matter. There must be consequences. We cannot be weak in the face of terror.
Arkansas Senator’s Response
Tom Cotton is a US Congressman. He said, “These unprovoked attacks on commercial shipping warrant retaliatory military strike.” It is important to understand that it is not about wanting war with Iran or not. People generally want peace, not war. But ignoring terrorism instead of fighting against it is definitely not the answer.
The United States has sank Iran’s Navy before. Maybe they need to do it again…
