LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): Gen. Spalding, a lot of people on the left are focusing on the reference to the culture sites in a tweet by the president, saying that that comment, even a reference to it -- blithe reference to it -- could unify the Iranian people, who don't even agree on these issues and probably want this regime gone, against Washington. Are you concerned about that?  

BRIG. GEN. ROBERT SPALDING: I actually think the Iranian leadership is going to have to take a reassessment based on the strike.

So, whatever language the president uses, it kind of reinforces this sense of unpredictability on -- so, they don't know where the line is.

And if they don't know where the line is, they have to reassess, and I think you're going to see a level of stability as a result.

Not just in Iran. I think it sends a message to Beijing, to Moscow and Pyongyang, that they need to pay attention to what the president is saying.
