As Iran retaliates following last week’s drone assassination of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani, there are real concerns of a war with Iran breaking out as a result.
However, Fox News host Sean Hannity – a man with many close connections to the Trump administration – does not seem to be worried. He issued a message of relative peace on his Tuesday show, perhaps in an attempt to quell fears of World War III on the horizon.
Hannity explained that President Trump is not planning to put troops on the ground, and it is instead the Washington D.C. swamp that wants to send troops to die in the Middle East.
“We don’t want boots on the ground. The president has made it clear that he’s not putting boots on the ground,” Hannity said.
“Might need a few more intelligence people to protect very specific areas. I know the Washington swamp creatures, they like to send our kids to war,” he added.
Hannity has previously talked tough on Iran and cautioned his audience about the threat the country poses to American interests for many years. He has often been among the neocon war hawks calling for a more belligerent approach in dealing with the Islamic Republic.
“Mr. ‘Death to America, death to Israel’ radicals like President Rouhani … You now dare to threaten the United States of America again,” Hannity said earlier this week. “You have zero territorial integrity in the country of Iraq. And Soleimani is responsible for the deaths of thousands, including our fellow Americans. You are the leader of the number one terrorist state in the world. You, Rouhani, are a mass murderer, just like Soleimani.”
“There is a special place in hell that awaits you,” Hannity added.
Hannity’s shift in rhetoric likely coincides with the administration’s goals, as they realize a full-blown war with Iran would be an Iraq-level disaster. President Trump once called the Iraq war the “worst single mistake” in U.S. history, and he has talked frequently about bringing the troops home from endless wars in the Middle East. A major conflict with Iran could cost the President crucial support among a war-weary public with his potential re-election right around the corner.
It was previously announced that President Trump would make an address regarding Iran tonight, but that has been postponed to tomorrow morning.
Trump released a tweet signaling that he may be ready to de-escalate tensions with Iran now that the two nations have traded blows:
All is well! Missiles launched from Iran at two military bases located in Iraq. Assessment of casualties & damages taking place now. So far, so good! We have the most powerful and well equipped military anywhere in the world, by far! I will be making a statement tomorrow morning.

The possibility of a war with Iran may not come to fruition, but the days to come will be exceedingly crucial to keeping the peace.
Left-Wing Extremist Charged in Alleged Florida Capitol Attack Identified Soros as “Sponsor”
Daniel Alan Baker had bragged of a Soros sponsorship.
A left-wing extremist arrested and charged with a terrorist plot to confront and kidnap protestors at the Florida Capitol identified billionaire George Soros as his “sponsor” in a YouTube video. Daniel Alan Baker, 33, has been federally charged with transmitting a threat to kidnap or injure.
Baker appears to have fought overseas with a Kurdish militia group identified as a terrorist organization by the State Department, the Marxist PKK. He’s an Army veteran who appears to have been discharged after going AWOL before a deployment.
Baker has been charged for an alleged plot involving a group of armed leftists surrounding pro-Trump protestors at the Florida Capitol in Tallahassee on the day of Joe Biden’s inauguration. It’s unclear if right-wing protestors even intend to demonstrate at the site, and Baker’s dangerous attempt to incite an armed confrontation may never have advanced beyond speculative stages.
A “call to arms” flier seen on Baker’s YouTube channel calls for Florida residents to surround supposed “racists” and to “trap them inside” the State Capitol, advocating for the kidnapping of supposed Inauguration demonstrators.
In a YouTube video calling for doxxing attempts on individuals present at the raucous US Capitol riot, Baker brags of having acquired the globalist oligarch as a “sponsor,” implying that the megabillionaire had provided him with an “antifa card.”
Baker’s remarks may have been hyperbole, intentionally seeking to draw attention from critics of the Hungarian-born liberal kingpin.
A charging affidavit also alleges that Baker advocated for the assassination of United States military officers on his YouTube channel, a threat that could potentially incur even more serious criminal charges.
The FBI believes that Baker intended to assassinate Turkish military personnel training in the United States, and that he was on the scene during Seattle’s Capital Hill Autonomous Zone anarchist rebellion. Baker identified himself as a “hardcore leftist” on his personal social media, as well, urging his followers to “prepare for war” after the November 3rd election.
