In recent weeks, President Trump has been taking stronger action against Iran. As the rogue nation continues hostile threats to America and our allies, the administration is taking steps to ensure Iran doesn’t threaten anyone ever again. Trump’s latest move is a “clear and unmistakable message” to the tyrants of that nation.
Iran has been a problem in the Middle East and around the world for decades. The regime has backed numerous terrorist organizations. In fact, it trains its own terrorists within its country. For a long time, the United States has passed sanctions against Iran, in order to prevent the nation from getting nuclear weapons.
All that was undone during the Obama administration. Our last president stunned the world when he rolled back sanctions and agreed to the disastrous Iran Nuclear Deal. The pact was said to accelerate Iran’s nuclear capabilities, not slow them. Obama signed it anyway. He also paid the evil regime $2 billion in gold assets and cash. It’s hard not to wonder who Obama was really working for.
When President Trump took over, he quickly went to work putting Iran in its place. He quickly killed the Iran Nuclear Deal and restored needed sanctions against the country. He’s spoke openly about supporting the people of Iran who are fighting for regime change.
Trump has made it clear the United States will not tolerate violence from Iran against any of our allies in the region. Yet recently there seems to be more activity coming from the rogue state. So, Trump has made good on his word.
The Trump administration is sending a carrier strike group and a bomber task force to the Middle East to send a “clear and unmistakable message” in response to “a number of troubling and escalatory indications and warnings.”
The deployment also comes amid the bloodiest fighting in five years between Israel and Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip.”
Iran has continued to spew hatred towards Israel in recent days while clearly indicating it wants to destroy Israel…

Iran has its fingers in numerous groups seeking to destabilize the Middle East. We know how they have caused chaos and death in Syria. But their real target is Israel. The only true Jewish state in the world—and only true democracy in the Middle East—has been threatened by Iran on an almost daily basis.
Even as recently as this weekend, Israel has been bombarded by rocket attacks from the Gaza Strip. It’s hard not to see Iran’s involvement in these attacks, given their influence among radical terror groups.
President Trump is done playing games with Iran. John Bolton made it clear we’re not eager for war. But the constant harassment and attacks by Iran must be addressed.
Our last administration did nothing to help the problems of the Middle East. In fact, Obama’s terrible foreign policy only made things worse. His bizarre support for Iran only empowered and enriched the regime all the more.
President Trump has no intention of doing the same. This carrier strike group and bomber task force is more than a clear message. This show of force is ready to intervein, should Iran continue their hostile behavior.
It’s a warning to the rogue state that the United States takes their aggression seriously. We stand behind Israel and will no longer look the other way as radical jihadist groups try to destabilize the region.
The question is, how will Iran respond? Iran likes to talk big. They’ve made promises to wipe Israel and America off the map. But it’s clear they only attack when it looks like nobody is going to respond. When we show them that we mean business, they back down.
Perhaps they will get some sense and start cooperating with the U.S. If not, well those bombers aren’t there just to look pretty.
