American Senator from Arkansas Thomas Cotton said Wednesday that the US can win a war against Iran with “two strikes”. When answering the question about a possible conflict, the lawmaker didn’t hesitate to answer in the affirmative.
“Two strikes, the first strike and the last strike”, Cotton claimed. “Well, if Iran struck out militarily against the United States or against our allies in the region then I would certainly expect a devastating response”.
The senator stressed, however, that he wasn’t advocating military action against the Islamic Republic, but was simply explaining what Washington would do if the conflict escalates.Relations between the two countries have been in a downward spiral.
