Fox News host Tucker Carlson was dubious about President Donald Trump’s Baghdad drone strike on Iran’s top general, commenting that “Washington has wanted war with Iran for decades.”
To support his argument, he quoted former Security Adviser John Bolton’s comments about the strike: “Congratulations to all involved in eliminating Qasem Soleimani. Hope this is the first step to regime change in Tehran.”
Carlson pointed out that Trump has repeatedly said since his campaign that he doesn’t want more war in the Middle East and is not looking for regime change. Yet, he has taken steps that could lead the U.S. in that direction with Iran, according to Carlson.
According to Carlson, the U.S. should not get into a war unless the government can prove that it will “make the United States richer and more secure.”
“There are a lot of bad people in the world,” Carlson said. “We can’t kill them all. It isn’t our job.”
