    The US doesn’t want war but reserves the right to surround Iran with warships and bombers just in case Tehran makes a “bad” decision that doesn’t conform to Washington’s interests, Mike Pompeo has boldly stated in an interview.

    The United States would “of course” welcome the opportunity to negotiate with Tehran, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told CNBC on Saturday. However, a build-up of “deterrent forces” around Iran is necessary so that the US could respond if Iran “decided to come after an American interest – whether that be in Iraq, or Afghanistan, or Yemen, or any place in the Middle East.”

    He insisted that Washington has no interest in inflaming a new conflict in the region, but would still be prepared to act “in the event that the Iranians make a bad decision.”

    “We’re not going to miscalculate: Our aim is not war, our aim is a change in the behavior of the Iranian leadership,” Pompeo said.

    Smells like another big false flag coming soon.

    Report: Mossad intel of looming Iranian attack led US to send in carrier force

    How is Iran a threat to us again ?

    I bet Saddam's weapons of mass destruction are hiding in Iran...they should go in and get them...they're sure to find them this time.

    Trump has threatened war on Iran if an Iranian flips the bird at one of his big beautiful boats...and powerful, very powerful.
    Bolton will be scouring Instagram accounts at this very moment looking for provocation.

    We should have made Iran a parking lot a long time ago. They have had some ships get close to US Ships as well as planes in the area. I guess the weasel in Iran has a suicide wish.

    Pompeo and Bolton are hoping to make love on that island. Cheney is wishing he was a few hundred years younger.

    If you wish for peace, prepare for war. You knew that didn't you?
