Mike Pompeo Makes Shocking Statement on Iran Conflict as US Troops Get Ready

Iran has continually been flirting with disaster as they keep poking at the United States, even with our embassies and military bases located in the Middle East.

However, their days of causing problems in the Middle East may be coming to an end sooner rather than later, if the United States gets what she wants.

For quite some time now, Iran's national military has been conducting some pathetic and cowardly terror attacks on the oil infrastructure in the region.

A number of tankers have found themselves on the receiving end of explosive attacks using magnetic mines as well as drone strikes on key Saudi Arabian transport and manufacturing sites.

But Secretary of State Mike Pompeo insists that war with the Iranian regime is not in the cards, despite the military maneuver.

“Our mission set is to avoid war,” Pompeo said. “You saw what Secretary Esper announced on Friday, we are putting additional forces in the region for the purpose of deterrence and defense,” he said.

Pompeo said Washington was taking measures to deter Tehran, but he added that Trump would take necessary action if Tehran failed to change its behavior. “If that deterrence should continue to fail, I am also confident that President Trump would continue to take the actions that are necessary,” he said.

U.S. has slapped more sanctions on Iran, penalizing the Iranian Central Bank while the Pentagon said it was sending U.S. troops to bolster Saudi Arabia’s air and missile defenses after the largest-ever attack on the kingdom’s oil facilities.

This lines up with what President Trump has said in the past as well.

Furthermore, this commitment to deterring war as opposed to fomenting it jibes with the President’s recent firing of John Bolton from his national security adviser role, as Bolton was known in Washington circles as an unmitigated war-hawk with Iran in his sights.
