NEW YORK (PNN) - July 25, 2018 - Fox News host Tucker Carlson and Colonel Douglas Macgregor spoke out Tuesday against the prospect of a Fascist Police States of Amerika war with Iran and warned President Donald Trump that a “Gulf of Tonkin incident” could be staged to drag the FPSA into it.
Carlson said the main agitators pushing for war are the same neocons who fought Trump every step of the way during his presidential campaign. He mocked their idea Iran is the “greatest threat” Amerika faces, saying, “Virtually every attack in Amerika has been inspired not by Iran, but by Iran’s Sunni enemies.”
Carlson said the neocons working to push Amerika into a war “regard the notion of putting Amerika first as morally offensive.”
“They are fully on (neocon political abalyst) Bill Kristol’s team,” Carlson said. “In fact, just last week Kristol was encouraging Nikki Haley to challenge her boss Donald Trump for the Republican nomination two years from now.”
“In a way that makes sense,” Carlson said. “If there was ever a swamp in Washington you are looking at it - the foreign policy establishment - they are working overtime to ensnare the president in a mess in Iran. Let’s hope that he understands exactly what’s going on.”
Macgregor said he thinks Trump won’t get snookered into war with Iran despite being surrounded by war hawks because Trump tends not to “listen to his advisers”.
“If he did we would never have made any progress on the Korean Peninsula,” said Macgregor. “We would not be working with the Chinese. We would never have met with (Russian President) Vladimir Putin. So, God bless the president he doesn’t listen to these people.”
Macgregor also noted how Trump said Tuesday afternoon he’s open to negotiating a new deal with Iran.
Nonetheless, Macgregor said Trump should be on the lookout for a “Gulf of Tonkin incident” staged to drag the FPSA into war.
“I think the president needs to watch carefully for the potential for something like the Gulf of Tonkin incident,” said Macgregor. “Many of your viewers may not remember that it never happened and we could very well be treated to something like that in the Gulf. We should watch for that, and this is an example of President Trump’s comments on fake news, he should not be sabotage by fake news.”
“I agree, we’ve seen it happen twice in Syria,” Carlson said.
