Tucker Carlson blasted pro-war GOP Senators Lindsey Graham and John Cornyn as “f*cking lunatics” after they both called for the United States to go to war with Iran after 3 U.S. service members were killed in an Iranian-backed drone strike. Though the DoD and corporate media are claiming that the drone strike took place in a border region of Jordan, where the U.S. has a longtime, mutually agreed upon military presence, other reports say that it really took place in Syria, where the United States is illegally occupying Syrian territory.
Neo-con Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and John Cornyn (R-TX) wasted no time in calling for more American blood and treasure to be expended in the Middle East after American troops faced an Iranian-backed kamikaze drone strike that killed 3 and wounded at least 34.
“Hit Iran now. Hit them hard,” South Carolina Senator Graham posted on X after the drone strike.
“Target Tehran,” posted Texas Senator Cornyn, with each of the Senators echoing the forever war neo-cons and military-industrial complex donors who’ve backed their political careers since their very beginnings.
In an X post of his own, legendary newsman Tucker Carlson offered a simple, yet effective response to the warmongers, attaching screenshots of their tweets to his post and calling them “F*cking lunatics.”
In addition to Graham and Cornyn, several members of both the Democrat and Republican parties have made calls for military action against Iran, including GOP candidate Nikki Haley – marking just the latest time that she has beaten the Iran war drums.
Haley faced backlash from a heckler at a rally over the weekend for her hawkishness, with a man shouting “No new wars!” and “I’m done with the military-industrial-complex!” before he was booed by Haley supporters and removed from the venue.
Haley’s latest calls for war with Iran echo those of months past.
The very day after the 10/7 Hamas raids on Israel, Nikki Haley was on Fox News claiming that the attacks represented an Iranian strike on the United States and that it was time to “finish them.”
