Republican Congressman Peter King told CNBC’s Larry Kudlow that he regarded the dubious Iranian terror plot as an “act of war” and that President Obama should put the military on standby in response.
“They’ve not just crossed the red line, they’ve jumped over the red line, and this to me is an act of war,” said the Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, adding that a military response should be kept on the table as an option “to let Iran know how seriously we take this,” as well as other “bad state actors”.
King called for new sanctions to be applied as well as advocating economic warfare by causing the Iranian central bank to collapse. Ludicrously, he also called on Obama to slap sanctions on the sale of Iranian crude oil, a move that would send gas prices soaring for American citizens, fruther cripple the global economy, while also possibly laying the foundation for world war three.
King nonchalantely implied that other middle eastern nations, including Saudi Arabia, could be threatened to fill the gap, “because they realize their survival is on the line here.”
Starting a new global energy crisis and potentially a massive global conflict in response to a fabricated terror plot that many would consider too far-fetched for a Hollywood movie script are not enough for King however, he also called for all Iranian diplomats to be expelled from the UN, claiming most of them were spies and suggesting Iran wanted to blow up the New York subway system.
King also agreed with Kudlow that the U.S. military should set in process a series of aggressive military manouvers to strike fear into Iran.
Of course, neo-con King’s belligerant call for Obama to set in motion world war three is made to look all the more ridiculous by the fact that the already dubious Iranian terror plot is now starting to look less credible than a children’s fairytale story.
As we reported earlier, the legal documents from the case clearly indicate how the alleged plot to assassinate a Saudi ambassador was wholly the creation of the DEA informant working to entrap accused patsy Mansour J. Arbabsiar on behalf of the FBI.
21-year CIA veteran Robert Baer called the alleged plot as “a truly awful Hollywood script,” noting how Iran’s highly professional Quds Force would never hire an alcoholic, pot smoking, prostitute using used car salesman to carry out a high profile political assassination.
