Tom Cotton: Unprovoked attacks on oil tankers 'warrant a retaliatory military strike'

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) on Sunday called said unprovoked attacks on oil tankers the U.S. government has blamed on Iran "warrant a retaliatory military strike."

"These unprovoked attacks on commercial shipping warrant a retaliatory military strike," Cotton said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” while insisting President Trump had the power to order such a strike without congressional approval.

“The president has the authorization to act to defend American interests,” he said.

A military strike, Cotton added, “will make it clear we will not tolerate any kind of attacks on commercial shipping on the open seas.”

Sure Cotton. Since you have combat experience you should be the first one to parachute in.

4. Wrong, Tommy.

"retaliatory military strikes" are the last option.

What's actually warranted is an independent investigation to refute all the lies and propaganda and determine who is actually responsible. Then go from there.

How many troops did Tommy get needlessly killed with his reckless behavior on the battlefield?

7. I expect no pushback from the White House on this

Cotton serves the purpose of making Trump look reasonable by doing nothing other than verbally condemning the attack. They're not going to interfere with that.

6. What interest, remember were oil independant now...

that's what's being sold to the public we don't need foreign oil. MBS is a killer. the Saudi's want America to do more of their dirty work. Most of the conflict there because even in the 21st century they have these barbaric concepts of religious tribalism. Go after Iran for selling military equipment to Yemen, when were one of the biggest promoters of hardware in the region along with Russia.
