Podcast: Trump Instructs Navy to ‘Shoot Down’ Iranian Ships
The president's foolish threat
On FPF #483, I discuss Trump’s lastest foolish threat to Iran. Trump tweeted that he is instructing the Navy to ‘shoot down’ Iranian ships that harass American Navy ships.
If Trump’s orders are followed it could provoke a shooting war between the US and Iran.
Thankfully, senior Pentagon officials signaled they plan to keep the same rules of engagement in the Persian Gulf.
