“Yes, two strikes,” he told Margaret Hoover of “Firing Line” when asked if the U.S. could win a war against Iran. “The first strike and the last strike.”
Cotton said that he would not advocate for a war with Iran but warned there would be a “furious response” to any provocation against U.S. interests in the region.
“I don’t advocate military action against Iran. I’m simply delivering the message that if Iran were to attack the United States, it would be a grave miscalculation on their part and there would be a furious response,” he said.
