Pompeo: The US doesn’t want war with Tehran, although Iran attacked tankers

“President Trump has done everything he can to avoid war… but Washington will guarantee free navigation through vital shipping routes,” said US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Sunday. “The US is going to make sure that we take all the actions necessary, diplomatic and otherwise, that achieve that outcome,” Pompeo said. “The intelligence community has lots of data, lots of evidence proving unmistakably” that Iran was responsible for the attacks on the two tankers, he said. “The Iranians should understand very clearly that we will continue to take actions that deter Iran from engaging in this kind of behavior.” The secretary Also emphasized that “Iran will not get a nuclear weapon.”

      Get real, Pompeo isn’t losing any credibility at all. He’s smart, America needs to build the case for war, with proof. And Iran is building our case. You can’t just start a war. It’s not a video game. It’s real American lives at risk.

        The yanks should provide the soldiers and we’ll provide the intel. No need to send our people in to fight any wars.

      Pompeo doesn’t have any credibility. Technically speaking that is a fact. He is a very well known liar who openly admits to being one, as Director of the CIA on top of that. All in the name of duty of course. Pompeo is a Bully who has the power behind him to do a lot of things. He’s been pretty good for Trump so far showing up in various countries around the globe issuing threats based on his power and supported by lies. It is what it is. Pompeo has no credibility at all. All power.

    The conflict will be after the reelection. If Trump don’t achieve the second term, all the “mise en scene” ( the builtt up) will miserably fall….

    Why announce that you are going to attack some one? The US can hit the Iranians anytime it wants and there is nothing the Iranians can do about it! Pompeo does not advertise when, where; or how we choose to attack Iran.
