Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson has refused to go along with his network’s script of war propaganda, and is calling out malign actors within the Republican Party who are pushing the U.S. into a conflict with Iran.
Carlson called out Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, as well as infamous neocon war hawks Max Boot and John Bolton, during a segment on his show broadcast on Friday night. He pointed out that Pompeo could only point to vague “threats in the region” during an appearance on CNN, not anything imminent from Iran that put Americans directly at risk.
“Threats in the region? If you don’t live in Washington, here is the translation. That would be in hostile Middle Eastern countries, places where American troops would never be in the first place were it not for the insistent demands of non-geniuses like Max Boot and John Bolton,” Carlson explained.
“But never mind. No one in Washington is in the mood for big-picture questions right now, questions, the obvious ones, like: Is Iran really the greatest threat we face? And: who’s actually benefiting from this? And: why are we continuing to ignore the decline of our own country in favor of jumping into another quagmire, from which there’s no obvious exit? By the way, if we’re still in Afghanistan 19 sad years later, what makes us think there’s a quick way out of Iran?” Carlson asked.
Carlson also called out Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE), who he has previously exposed as a shill for globalist oligarchs, for beating the war drums following Thursday’s murderous drone strike against Iranian General Qasem Soleimani near a Baghdad airport.
“This is very simple: General Soleimani is dead because he was an evil bastard who murdered Americans. The President made the brave and right call, and Americans should be proud of our servicemembers who got the job done. Tehran is on edge – the mullahs have already slaughtered at least a thousand innocent Iranians – and before they lash out further they should know that the U.S. military can bring any and all of these IRGC butchers to their knees,” Sasse said.
Other neocon war hawks in the GOP have issued similar statements as they lick their lips over the possibility of a war in Iran.
“Qassem Soleimani was an evil and deadly terrorist with the blood of thousands, including hundreds of Americans, on his hands. President Trump was right to order decisive action to kill Soleimani to prevent further attacks and defend American lives and interests,” said Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY).
“Qassem Soleimani masterminded Iran’s reign of terror for decades, including the deaths of hundreds of Americans. Tonight, he got what he richly deserved, and all those American soldiers who died by his hand also got what they deserved: justice,” Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) said.
“Wow – the price of killing and injuring Americans has just gone up drastically. Major blow to Iranian regime that has American blood on its hands. Soleimani was one of the most ruthless and vicious members of the Ayatollah’s regime. He had American blood on his hands. I appreciate President Trump’s bold action against Iranian aggression. To the Iranian government: if you want more, you will get more,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC).
Carlson finds the bellicose rhetoric of these neocons, many of whom cheered on the disastrous Iraq War and other catastrophic military conflicts, to be completely unacceptable.
“Before we enter into a single new war, there’s a criterion that ought to be met. Our leaders should explain to us how that conflict will make the United States richer and more secure,” Carlson said in his rant against the war mongers.
“There are an awful lot of bad people in this world. We can’t kill them all. It’s not our job. Instead, our government exists to defend and promote the interests of American citizens. Period. That’s why we have a government. So, how has the killing of Soleimani done that? Maybe. No one in Washington has explained how,” Carlson added.

Biden Shadow Secretary of State Urged Support of Iraq War in 2002
Meet the new boss, the same as the old boss.
Joe Biden is yet to be certified as the President-elect, but that hasn’t stopped from from touting tentative cabinet picks.
Without exception, his cabinet appears to be largely liberal globalists with a lengthy track record of supporting the failed policy proposals of the 2000’s and 1990’s.
Biden’s Secretary of State pick, Antony Blinken, urged the then-Delaware Senator to support the disastrous Iraq War as a policy advisor to Biden in 2002.
Blinken advised Biden to vote for the Iraq War. Also said US failed by not sending more troops to Syria. https://t.co/BisdYmdAuN

Blinken would go on to create an establishment political consulting company that secured cozy lobbying deals with Big Tech and a pharmaceutical giant during Donald Trump’s presidency.
TONY BLINKEN co-founded a consultancy @WEAdvisors that launched in 2018 to help clients navigate DC.
It doesn’t disclose most clients’ identities, but has acknowledged working with an unidentified drug maker & a Big Tech firm it helped with US-China trade https://t.co/cj4mKJbnBM

Journalist Glen Greenwald pointed to Blinken as a textbook example of a neoliberal corporate Democrat, infamous for touting a Beltway elite agenda largely disliked by the general public. In similar fashion to neocon warhawk John Bolton, it appears that Blinken’s support for the most disastrous foreign policy mistake in American history isn’t going to prevent him from sauntering into the avenues of power, if he ends up getting confirmed as a President Biden’s Secretary of State.

Blinken would go on to support Barack Obama’s disastrous regime change operation in the 2011 Libyan Civil War, setting up the North African country for a decade of instability and eventually becoming a trafficking hub for exploited migrants seeking to reach Europe. Blinken was a National Security Advisor to the Vice President at the time.
If Biden ends up getting inaugurated, President Donald Trump will become the first US president in decades not to engage the United States in a new foreign conflict in office. (Bill Clinton and Barack Obama instigated US involvement in wars in Yugoslavia and Libya respectively.
