Iran Ups The Ante

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JULY 23, 2019

            IRAN HAS UPPED THE ANTE IN ITS CONTINUING HOSTILITY TOWARDS THE WEST. LAST WEEK MEMBERS OF IRAN’S REVOLUTIONARY GUARD SEIZED A BRITISH OIL TANKER IN THE STRAIGHT OF HORMUZ. THEY PARADED ITS 28 CREW MEMBERS BEFORE TV CAMERAS. THE CREW WAS FORCED TO SIT ON THE FLOOR WITH THEIR LEGS CROSSED. 

IRAN HAS ALSO ARRESTED SEVENTEEN PEOPLE IT CLAIMS ARE CIA SPIES. SOME ARE THREATENED WITH EXECUTION. IRAN’S SECURITY CHIEF CLAIMS THE 17, ALL IRANIANS, ARE MEMBERS OF AN AMERICAN “SPY RING” PLANTED INSIDE IRAN’S NUCLEAR, MILITARY AND CYBER FACILITIES.

RESPONDING TO THIS, SECRETARY OF STATE MIKE POMPEO NOTES THAT IRAN FREQUENTLY LIES, BUT HE DIDN’T DENY IRAN’S ASSERTION. 

THE JIHADI MULLAHS WHO RUN IRAN HAVE INCREASED THEIR ANTI-AMERICAN AND ANTI-WESTERN RHETORIC SINCE THE U.S. PULLED OUT OF THE NUCLEAR DEAL, WHICH THE U.S. CLAIMS IRAN WAS VIOLATING. WE ARE IN A RELIGIOUS AND CULTURAL WAR WITH MUSLIM TERRORISTS, SOME OF WHOM ARE IN THE UNITED STATES AND GROWING IN NUMBERS. 

WHAT WILL BE THE BRITISH AND AMERICAN RESPONSE TO ALL OF THIS? IT HAD BETTER BE CONVINCING AND NOT TEPID. I’M CAL THOMAS.
