Mark Levin: If Something Serious Isnít Done, Iran Will Take This Attack as a First Step
CNS News ^ | September 17, 2019 | Michael Morris

Posted on 09/17/2019 7:42:12 PM PDT by Kazan

On his nationally syndicated radio talk show “The Mark Levin Show” on Monday, host Mark Levin warned that if something serious isn’t done, Iran will take this attack as a first step.

“I will say this, if something isn’t done, something serious and significant isn’t done respecting Iran, they’re going to take this as a first step,” stated Mark Levin. “I’m just telling you. They’re going to take this as a first step. So, we’ll see what happens.”

Mark Levin’s comments came after a Saudi Arabian oil facility was attacked by “cruise missiles and drones,” FOX News reported, that “were launched from Iranian soil,” and after Iran seized control of another oil tanker in the Strait of Hormuz.

Below is a transcript, in pertinent part, of Mark Levin’s remarks from his show on Monday:

“The Iranians are not going away.

“So what should the president do? Short of military action – and I’m not saying we should be short of military action, but if we are – what should we do? Should we lift our sanctions? No. There are five areas of waivers that the secretary of state’s office has argued should not be lifted, that is, they shouldn’t be imposed on Iran. Will the secretary of state change his mind now? I hope. There needs to be a lot of pressure on Iran.

“I read an article the other day – I don’t know if it’s right or not – that Iran’s pension funds are about to collapse, including with the military. Isn’t that a good thing? Wouldn’t that be great?

“So why would we give them a $15 billion bridge loan?

“Remember the gentleman who called last week? He had been from Eastern Europe, I believe. No, he was from France, I think – originally, now an American. He said, ‘Do you remember how Khomeini would up in Iran? Because the French government released him.’ The French make very, very stupid foreign policy decisions, which is why they’re a second- and third-tier country. I don’t think we need to be taking advice from Macron, who’s got 27 percent popularity in France, and has no background on anything, no background on anything.

“So the Iranians are pirates on the open sea. They took another oil tanker yesterday.

“If you go on the internet – you won’t read this in many newspapers because the media are the media – you’ll see they’re kidnapping British and Australians and others left and right now.

“This attack on Saudi Arabia should grab your attention because of its accuracy, the devastation and the technology involved.

“And as I told you before, maybe Rand Paul is not aware of this, the fifth fleet is harbored in Bahrain. Should we withdraw? Should we pull back? How about with China? They took over the South China Sea with their fake islands. Should we withdraw, pull back? Should we take our subs off of the Korean peninsula, remove them too? Where should we go? Where should we go? Just keep pulling back and back and back and let these various threats and enemies grow and grow and grow?

“Rand Paul asked a question over the weekend: ‘Why are we in Afghanistan?’ Is this guy an idiot? Does anybody know why we went into Afghanistan? Anybody? Everybody knows why we went into Afghanistan. Because the Taliban gave safe harbor to Al Qaeda and Bin Laden, and if we take all of our troops out of Afghanistan, what do you think is going to happen?

“I mean, how many more times do we have to lose Americans, heroes, blood to go back and fight the same battles, go back and fight over the same territory? It’s— At one point we had over 140,000 troops in Afghanistan. We’re down to 14,000. We have about anywhere from 1,500 to 2,200 special forces in Syria. We have minimal presence in Iraq.

“We’re not an invading army. We’re not going to war with these countries. We’re trying to make sure we’re not attacked – yes, from 7,000 miles away – that we’re not attacked. We’re not colonialists. We’re not conquerors.

“I will say this, if something isn’t done, something serious and significant isn’t done respecting Iran, they’re going to take this as a first step. I’m just telling you. They’re going to take this as a first step. So, we’ll see what happens.

“But right now they’re controlling events – not the world – they’re controlling events.”

This is old style thinking. We don’t need any foreign wars.

Iran has the go ahead from the globalists because they want to undermine the United States of America and any other country with populist successes against them.

If Saudi Arabia or Israel have a problem with Iran, let them fight it out. No more Americans dying for the hell-holes of the mid-east.

Please stop, Mark. I voted for Donald Trump because I’m tired of living in a country run by Sunni Muslims named Bush, Clinton, McCain and Graham.

“Neocons ( I hate that term) trying to stretch his point.
SA, bad as it is, can respond appropriately.

He perfectly reveals his war propensities.

Carrots and sticks are useful, Mark. Also, just plain leaving the problem to the local powers is perfectly acceptable.

It’s not like the trillions we’ve spent bought us or the world anything worthwhile except let us evade our own need to explore our resources so we weren’t left hanging with, and funding, evil.

Even if we were forced into a serious conflict overseas, the state media and their overseerers, the democrats in congress specifically, have done irreparable damage to duly elected leadership to the point that the enemy would have a much easier time turning public opinion against our efforts to win and get out with minimal loss to the American Fighting man

That is, IMO, treason and worthy of the penalty for treason

Not our oil. Not our oilfield.
IF the Saudis want to do something about it, we’ll be happy to sell them the weapons and ammo. Let the Moslems kill each other.

Who’s paying the mullas to carry out their little dramas? Putin.. the chicoms? I imagine their going broke or can’t get access to the billions they stole from their own people.

If the Saudi’s can cut women’s heads off in public, surely the can find the courage to deal with Iran by themselves.

The NeoCons bankrupted us & would put all our lives at risk for what they want the world to be but isn’t. No thanks.

This is old style thinking.

I think those that are opposed to being vigilant against Islamic terrorism are guilty of that, the same kind of mentality Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton had.

Nothing an overflight of B-52s from Diego Garcia can’t solve.

Do it anonymously and then deny it. Troll the Iranians for all they are worth.

And other than bleed all over that shithole for eighteen years, what did we do about it?

You'd prefer more civilians die here and abroad in Islamic terrorist attacks?
