GOP Sen. Tom Cotton: "Unprovoked Attacks" On Oil Tankers From Iran "Warrant A Retaliatory Military Strike"


Republicans Sen. Tom Cotton told CBS's "Face The Nation" moderator Margaret Brennan that the U.S. response to Iran's suspected involvement in attacks on oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman should be one of "fire and fury."

"These unprovoked attacks on commercial shipping warrant a retaliatory military strike against the Islamic Republic of Iran," Cotton said.

"Going back to President Washington and all the way up to President Trump, the fastest way to get the fire and fury of the U.S. military unleashed on you is to interfere with the freedom of navigation on the open seas and in the air. That's exactly what Iran is doing in one of the world's most important strategic choke points," he said.
