US On Iran ”Hindrance, not for combat”: Pentagon Chief

Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan attributed the strong US leads in recent weeks; deployment of an aircraft carrier strike team, with stopping Iranian warnings.

Well, the US defense chief said Trump’s presidency been trying to hinder Iran, however not with a motto to lead combat, after he addressed the members of Congress.

“Whatever has happened, was just to cause trouble, but not alert on war. We are not about going to war,” acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan stated reporters after exiting the closed-door meeting with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Mr. Shanahan attributed the strong transits of the US in the current weeks, which involved the deployment of an aircraft carrier strike team, with thwarting Iranian warnings.

We have hindered drives based on the conditioning of assets, as we held combat against American forces,” said Mr. Shanahan.

“He further added, our pre-eminent focus at this point in time is to limit Iranian miscalculation. We do not want the condition to intensify”.

Mr. Pompeo said that he and Mr. Shanahan set Iranian activities holding the ring of being in attacking countries for more than 40 years,” since the 1979 Islamic revolution ousted the pro-Western shah with a staunchly anti-US clerical administration.

The guidance did not seem satisfying many Democrats, who say that the intensified tensions are the results of Trump administration’s aggressive posture and neglecting of statesmanship.

“I grieve very much that, deliberately or inadvertently, we can imagine a situation in which combat will arise,” Senator Bernie Sanders, an independent for the Democratic presidential nomination, stated the reporters.

Moreover, the Iraq and Vietnam hostilities were based on tales by past administrations, Mr. Sanders said:

“I consider that combat with Iran would be an outright collapse, far defective than the battle with Iraq.”
