The United States could win a war with Iran in a matter of two strikes, said the US Senator for Arkansas, Tom Cotton on Tuesday.
“Two strikes – the first strike and the last strike,” Cotton told Margaret Hoover in PBS’ Firing Line show.
When asked about what would justify going to war with Iran, he said: “If Iran struck out militarily against the United States or against our allies in the region, then I would certainly expect a devastating response against Iran.”
However, Cotton also said he does not advocate military action against Iran.
“I’m simply delivering the message that if Iran were to attack the United States, it would be a grave miscalculation on their part and there would be a furious response,” he said.
