Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) tweeted Tuesday that President Donald Trump had “provoked” the ongoing crisis with Iran and was possibly heading toward “another forever war.”
The Trump administration is considering new sanctions on Iran to stop it from using backdoor financial methods as a means to skirt U.S. economic sanctions on its business dealings with leading European nations, according to multiple U.S. officials who told the Free Beacon that Tehran is operating a “nuclear racket.”
Bolton revealed in an interview with the Washington Free Beacon that intelligence reports over the past month warned of covert attacks in the Middle East and South Asia by Iranian proxies.
“Iran Has Little to Gain From Oman Tanker Attacks,” read the headline from Bloomberg oil strategist Julian Lee. Lee then writes, “Who gains from these attacks? The obvious answer is Iran.”
A Washington Post reporter had to explain Thursday she wasn’t blaming the Trump administration for not heeding past Iranian warnings ahead of a suspected attack on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman.
