'Fox News host Tucker Carlson suggested National Security Advisor John Bolton and news outlets like CNN and MSNBC are agitating the U.S. toward war with Iran, calling their actions amid the Trump administration’s escalation with Tehran “chilling.”
“More than anything in the world, national security advisor John Bolton would love to have a war with Iran. It will be like Christmas, Thanksgiving, his birthday wrapped into one,” Carlson said on his show tonight. “Mercifully, John Bolton does not control the military.”
“How is a war with Iran in America’s interest in any way?” he added.
Carlson’s guest, retired Army Colonel Douglas Macgregor, predicted that “something will go wrong” if you place a “large number of forces… [in] close proximity to Iran in a small area like the Persian Gulf.”
“It looks like a Gulf of Tonkin incident with missiles in the making,” he explained.
“I do not see the president gaining from this but I see that he loses,” Macgregor said. “I don’t see how he gets reelected. I don’t see how he achieves anything in the gulf that is positive for the United States and the American people.”
Carlson then highlighted “the interests of America’s foreign policy establishment,” which he believes is made up of a “fairly large group… of people who are intent on a war with Iran.”
“The people agitating for it right now, MSNBC, CNN, Max Boot, Bill Kristol — the usual suspects,” Carlson said. “None of whom have the country’s interest at heart I would argue. I mean, it is chilling.”
Carlson’s colleague Fox Business host Lou Dobbs apparently did not get the same dove talking points, as he contributed to the war agitation himself.'
