According to Chief US Defence, the administration of US President Donald Trump was requesting to threaten Iran but not to begin a war, after briefing members of the Congress. US State Secretary Mike Pompeo, said, “ this is about deterrence, not about war. We are not about going to war”.
Incharge Defense Secretary US State Patrick Shanahan informed the reporters after departing the closed-door meeting with Secretary of the Mike Pompeo. Mr. Shanahan attributed robust US moves in current weeks, which cited also about the deployment of an aircraft carrier strike group, with preventing the threats of Iran.
Mr Shanahan said, “ we have deterred attacks based on reposturing of assets, deterred attacks against American forces”. He added, “ our biggest focus at this point is to prevent Iranian miscalculation. We do not want the situation to escalate.
US State Secretary claimed that he and Mr Shanahan triggered Iranian actions within the conditions of “ 40 years of terrorist activity”, since the 1979 Islamic insurgency replaced the pro-Western shah with a anti-US clerical sovereignty in a committed manner.
The notification did not pacify so many Democrats, who think that the escalated agitations are the outcomes of the confrontational moves of the US President Donald Trump, as well as making the diplomacy.
In an independent running for the Democratic Presidential nomination, Senator Bernie Sanders, told reporters, “I worry very much that, intentionally or unintentionally, we can create a situation in which war will take place ”.
Claiming that the Iraq and Vietnam wars were occured on lies by the previous administrations, Mr Sanders said, “ I believe that a war with Iran would be an absolute disaster, far worse than the war with Iraq”.
