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.
President Trump is ‘Terminating’ Relationship with Disgraced W.H.O., Punishing China for Hong Kong Takeover
Trump is striking back against the globalists.
President Donald Trump announced today that he will be “terminating” the relationship between the disgraced World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. as well as cutting off special trade advantages given to Hong Kong after China seized control of the formerly semi-autonomous city.
“We have detailed the reforms that it must make and engaged with them directly, but they have refused to act,” the president said from the White House. “Because they have failed to make the requested and greatly needed reforms, we will be today terminating the relationship.”
Trump claims that he will be “redirecting” the funds that previously went to the WHO toward “other worldwide and deserving urgent global public health needs.” He also said China “ignored” their obligations to the WHO when they spread disinformation to them about the nature of the coronavirus.
The WHO taking China at their word resulted in this embarrassing tweet that serves as an eternal reminder of the extreme incompetence of the globalist body:

Trump is also putting the squeeze on Hong Kong following China’s announcement that they will be taking additional power over the city that has rebelled against the red menace throughout the past year.
“I am directing my administration to begin the process of eliminating policy exemptions that give Hong Kong different and special treatment,” Trump said at the same press conference.
“My announcement today will affect the full range of agreements that we have with Hong Kong, from our extradition treaty, to our export controls and technologies,” Trump added. “We will take action to revoke Hong Kong’s preferential treatment as a separate customs and travel territory from the rest of China.”
“No reasonable person can assert today that Hong Kong maintains a high degree of autonomy from China, given facts on the ground,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement after delivering a report to Congress indicating that Hong Kong has been usurped by China.
The president also said he will instruct his “presidential working group on financial markets to study the different practices of Chinese companies listed on the U.S. financial markets, with a goal of protecting American investors.”
“Investment firms should not be subjecting their clients to the hidden and undue risks associated with financing Chinese companies that do not play by the same rules,” Trump said, adding that “Americans are entitled to fairness and transparency.”
President Trump is getting tough on China and the WHO now that the coronavirus pandemic has subsided a bit. He has not let the crisis distract him from his agenda of ending globalism and putting America first.
