Pentagon claims Iranians fired missile at US drone and missed


VARIOUS CONTINGENCIES. I EMPHASIZED EARLIER THIS NEED TO DEVELOP INTERNATIONAL CONSENSUS. 15% OF THE WORLD’S OIL FLOWS THROUGH THE STRAIT OF HORMUZ. WE OBVIOUSLY NEED TO MAKE CONTINGENCY PLANS SHOULD THE SITUATION DETERIORATE. PETE: WE ARE BACK WITH A FOX NEWS ALERT. ACTING SECRETARY OF DEFENSE PATRICK SHANAHAN PREPARING CONTINGENCY PLANS IN THE MIDDLE EAST AFTER A JAPANESE OIL TANKER WAS ATTACKED BY IRAN. MILITARY SOURCES SAY IRAN FIRED A SURFACE TO AIR MISSILE AT AMERICAN DRONE FLYING OVER THE GULF OF OMAN ON THURSDAY AND MISSED. JUST HOURS BEFORE THE ATTACK ON TWO OIL TANKERS. WHAT SHOULD THE RESPONSE BE. DANIEL HOFFMAN JOINS US NOW. DANIEL, THIS IS NOT YOUR FIRST RODEO. HAVE YOU SEEN IRAN ACT OUT LIKE THIS BEFORE. WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THESE PROVISIONS?>>PROFESSION PROVESSION PROVOCSION PROVOCATON PROVOCATIONS.>>IRAN’S BEHAVIOR OVER THE PAST SIX WEEKS OR SO STINGING EFFECT OF OUR MAXIMUM MEASURE. SANCTIONS WHICH HAVE BROUGHT THE IRANIAN ECONOMY AND CURRENCY TO FREE FALL. IRAN HAS LAUNCHED THESE AGGRESSIVE ATTACKS WITH US WITH INCREASING LESS PLAUSIBLE DIDN’T. THEY ARE TRYING TO DELAY INTERNATIONAL REACTION. ULTIMATELY LEAVING NO DOUBT THAT IRAN WAS RESPONSIBLE. PETE: WHAT’S THE PLAY THEN? TO YOUR POINT ON ECONOMICS, THEY HAVE STOPPED RELEASING THEIR INFLATION NUMBERS INTERNALLY BECAUSE THEY ARE LIKELY SO OUT OF CONTROL. SO THEY ARE HURTING AT HOME, LASHING OUT ABROAD. WHAT DO THEY HOPE WILL COME OF THIS?>>WELL, THEY MADE IT CLEAR IN THE PAST THAT IF THEIR EXPORT OF OIL IS BEING INHICKETTED THEN THEY WOULDN’T LIKE FOR OTHERS TO TRADE IN OIL AS WELL. AND SO THEY ARE TRYING TO DRIVE UP THE PRICE OF OIL. NOW, THAT WILL HELP THEIR ALLY RUSSIA WHICH IS TRADING IN OIL AND REAP MORE PROFITS. THEY ARE ALSO, I THINK, TRYING TO MESSAGE THE EUROPEANS. YOU WILL RECALL THAT A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO IRAN THREATENED EUROPE AND THE REST OF US THAT IF THEY DIDN’T RECEIVE SOME REDRESS FOR SANCTIONS THAT THEY WOULD — THAT HE WOULD ENRICH THEIR URANIUM TO WEAPONS GRADE LEVELS. THIS IS A FOLLOW-ON WITH TO THAT WITH KINETIC ACTION IN THE GULF. THEY WOULD LIKE TO GET BACK TO NEGOTIATIONS ON THEIR TERMS. PETE: YOU BELIEVE THEY WANT BACK TO NEGOTIATION TABLE BECAUSE ULTIMATELY THEY WANT A RELIEF OF THE SANCTION. WHAT DOES THIS ADMINISTRATION DO TO AVOID THE PIT FALLS OF WHAT THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION DID IN THAT REALM?>>LET’S MAKE IT CLEAR. WHAT THEY WANT TO DO THE IRANIANS IS TO GO BACK TO THE FLAWED IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL, WHICH WE DON’T WANT AND FOR GOOD REASONS. AND WE HAVE HIGHLIGHTED THAT REPEATEDLY ON THIS NETWORK. AND I THINK WHAT THE UNITED STATES HAS DONE AND RIGHTLY SO, WE HAVE MADE IT CLEAR THAT WE DON’T WANT WAR. AND THE BEST WAY TO AVOID IT IS TO MAKE IT CLEAR THAT IF IRAN LAUNCHES AN ATTACK ON US THAT IT WILL BE REGIME SUICIDE. THAT’S WHY WE SENT THE “USS ABRAHAM LINCOLN” AND B 52 BOMBERS TO THE REGION. A PLAN TO SEND 150,000 TROOPS IF NEEDED. WE WON’T LAUNCH ATTACK BUT WE WILL DEFEND OURSELVES. ONE THING YOU MIGHT LOOK FOR FROM OUR ADMINISTRATION IS MAYBE MORE DIRECT OUTLINE OF WHAT OUR RULES OF ENGAGEMENT ARE IN THE STRAIT OF HORMUZ AND THE GOLF AT LARGE SO IRAN UNDERSTANDS VERY CLEARLY AND THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY THE RESPONSE FROM THE UNITED STATES IN THE EVENT OF FURTHER KINETIC ACTION ON THEIR PART. PETE: DANIEL, VERY BRIEFLY, WE CAN’T KNOW WHAT THE PROVOCATION WOULD BE WHAT WOULD A KINETIC RESPONSE LOOK LIKE?>>A U.S. KINETIC RESPONSE COULD INVOLVE TARGETING THE IRANIAN IRGC IN THE GULF DIRECTLY IT. COULD INVOLVE TARGETING IRANIAN PROXY MILITIAS IF THEY ARE LAUNCHING ATTACKS AGAINST US. I THINK WHY WOULD BE VERY CAREFUL ABOUT A FLEXIBLE RESPONSE BASED ON THE NATURE

    "Japanese Oil Tanker was attacked by Iran." – Quite assumptive aren't we? The japs even disputed reports about this supposed attack. Sounds like the warmakers wants to bleed more money.

  • Dr. William Luther Pierce says:

    We should wage war with the REAL "terrorists " state, the real "racist " state, the actual apartheid state, the country that has secret stolen nuke tech. …….Israel!

  • Mr Carpet Man says:

    Let Japan handle this issue and security for their tankers and if they need backup then we could step in. Give them space and full authority from the US to do whatever they deem necessary.

  • Morteza Zarei says:

    Oh my god, you have to be stupid to believe this mother fu ers speech .
    You are trying to make a reason to bring world war 3and trust me persian golf will be full of blood from usa soldiers. Iran says if we attacked to ships we would strongly say we did. When they didn't, why you talk rubbish.
    Your stupid government will bring a war which you are a loser. Trust me, you will see. Keep this comment in your mind, and if you win the war, come back and swear as much as you can.
    We love usa people, but not government.

  • Anthony Spicer says:

    No war… Iran is trying to draw us into a war…. Stay the course… Keep applying sanctions…. I'm not an expert of any kind… I simply have a gut feeling about this….

  • Very hard to believe anything our government says anymore. Might have been Iran, but history of lies makes it hard to trust.

  • Its time to go full nookuler on Iran. Not because they fired a bottle rocket us but because its full of muslimanians and they are a virus.

  • Do not forget, American lives are more important, not Drones. Do not forget the so called "weapons of mass destruction" and "Gulf of Tonkin incident". Again there is no Iran deal, only a Executive Order signed by goodbye Obama. 👍👍👍 for President Trump.

  • On a side note. Sorry that Sanders is leaving the White House but if she makes Governor in Ak then it would be a good reason to move there.

  • Hahahahahahaha sure fox O K your as pathetic as Pompeo and Bolton, the world know it was America that did this.Hahahahaha all you can do is laugh at this pathetic excuse for news. Propaganda [email protected]#$%.

  • 125K USA Terror soldiers mean jackshit against 1 million Iranian soldiers and mujahideen who will come from ever corner of the world to fight Americans.

  • Stealth bombers. We know where their missile facilities are. Just bunker buster and take away all their bomb facilities and then tell them they try again, tac nuke to control radiation size

  • It's a trap. Don't fall for it Mr. President. We don't want or need another war. Let these idiots sink in their own misery.

  • Michael R. Williams says:

    I would not put it pass the deep state. Trying to lure us in a war. After all they are war mungers the trump administration. As left overes from the thug party that can not be trusted. Also knowen. As obomaites ,

  • Yea just another load of BS from the MSM, funny how those tankers got hit hours after oil prices were due to drop to 2$ a gallon, now the stock jumped to a higher price🤔🤔🤔 im glad people are starting to wake up to this same old song and dance.

  • Michael R. Williams says:

    The dems say trump is not the president John Kerry Is. Going around the world acting like. Secretary of state. Trump. Needs to put a stop to that , that is like in your face Mr. Trump charge him with Logan act,

  • There are no limits for lies. Fox news knows how to provoke people. People who watch FoX news, please watch other news channels as well. RT AMERICA IS GOOD NEW CHANNEL FOR EXAMPLE. if there is a country which started dozens of war it is USA. Vietnam, Venezuela, iraq, Afghanistan, japan, Libya ……….list goes on and on.

  • I wonder how come other news channels never mentioned about this. US government all ways blame without evidence.

  • Who wants oil in 2019 lol dummies best find something else to sell ASAP cause we don’t have much need for that much oil in our future

  • Iranians like all other nations have the right of defence. Americans entered in the Persian Gulf as aggressor. Under Articles 51 of UN Charter the Iranians the right of self-defence. Aggression in any form or shape is an aggression, it may be made by a super duper power like US or by illegitimate Israel or by India.

  • Really! Oh yes we see your confusion!
    Drones are in the great expance of air…
    tankers are on the great expanse of water…

  • Iran, friends of the Democrats. Question: What's John Kerry, John Brennan, Hillary and Obama up to … these days… is it possible they are giving critical information about the USA to Iran? Just a thought. Would a war benefit the Democrats..?

  • Moses Lochang says:

    Iran not Russian allies, and the will not solely benefits from the conflicts with US but Saudi Arabia will be the biggest beneficiary.

  • alinaghi Jamali says:

    You are a master in fabricating fake news. Just selling un-facts as facts. Be sure that if your fabrications leads to another war in this region, you will not come out of it as you childish calculate. By the way, stop talking on behalf of international community, which you and few remaining of your allies are not. You are clearly a minority. To remember you, count the number of population living in ''none alliance movement'' member states. By the way, I have my real name put on my comments. If most of you with your stupid radical war monger opinions are so courageous, why are you opening accounts with alias names. Come out and publish your identity you cowboys.
    You can thank me later for this short lesson.

  • Just wondering how come Iranian forces collected debris from drone and US didn't if it was in international waters. It's so fishy.

  • Kick out Bolton and Pompeo. They will get us to war for 100% right after the election if Trump runs again. lier Foxnews so eager on beating on war drum.

  • Bobby Joe Sheldon says:

    I thank President Trump should have , John Kerry picked up and questioned, WHY? you ask wall.
    Since John Kerry meet with the Iranian over Lords , ships have been fired on , they have gotten braver in challenging the United States Now down a United States plan!!

  • Just Observer says:

    What is it with everyone in the US competing to be a bigger liar? Is it becoming a fashion statement? Something to be proud of? Like, if you are not a liar, you lose your US citizenship? 2:15, US liar says "Iran is threatening to increase its enrichment to weapon grade level". The fact is "Iran will exceed its 300kg limit of 3.67% enriched uranium". Weapon grade is >90%! By the way, this representative of yours also looks very stupid.

  • Gator Don’tplay says:

    Iran blew our ally’s ship out the water and shot our drone out the sky in the same week!!!! They’re baiting trump

  • masoud malamaty says:

    The IRGC anti-aircraft system in the Strait of Hormuz is under the supervision of Chinese specialists and is supported. Currently, there are a number of Chinese military technicians in one of the Iranian islands and they are engaged in technical advice and technical support from the IRGC. For several years now, Chinias has been continuously involved with the pretext of fishing in the region.

  • masood ghazizadeh says:

    No war leave them alone every think will fixl am sure if other European country beside USA talk to iran they can fix all problem for 40 year us try let other fix it .why USA tax payers and drones shoot down

  • Oh my, those are even more stupid than CNN and BBC, or it is adjustment for the clientele as CNN and BBC are more international oriented…

  • Mr. president, BEEN THERE DONE THAT BEFORE, DON'T TAKE THE LYING BAIT. RESIST THE DECEPTION, PERSUASION, ASSERTIONS AND COERCIONS. IT TAKES A FOOL TO BE A USEFUL TOOL. STAND STRONG.

  • samulo samulo says:

    In 1988, the U.S. Navy shot down an Iranian passenger jet, killing 290 civilians; Some members of the crew that shot the plane down were later awarded medals, and the United States has not formally apologized for the event.

  • No, that was just a warning shot. Unfortunately, US didn't head the warning and the Iranians didn't miss the Global Hawk.

  • Ruthia Hughes says:

    Stupid U.S. men are being coached to instigate these accusations on IRAN…. (who) we never even hear about…. "They" were banned from interacting on social media in 2014 …, purposely to eliminate problems that would arise involving them with Americans especially youth .People don't understand the huge difference between these countries. Most people in the USA are NAIVE believing these people ( like Iraq ) think and believe the same way we do. They are as different in contrast, as a German Shepherd and the Hyena.
    Don't judge or point blame, don't even TRY to understand them because YOU CANNOT!
