SEAN HANNITY (HOST): President Trump does not want war, he said so clearly during the campaign. He's not interested in another, you know, years and years long international entanglement. I don't expect one. But in coming days, we will know if the mullahs are smart enough to take the opportunity, which is a small window -- it may not even exist within five minutes.
Because if they don't, the president will have no choice. He will bomb the hell out of them. No need for a long, protracted boots-on-the-ground kind of war. We have the greatest military, thank God, on the face of this earth. We have the most advanced weapon systems, and a strong message needs to be sent that a huge price will be paid if you take on the United States of America. Simple peace through strength, and it works.
Thankfully tonight, we are in a new era. The weak, feckless Biden-Obama foreign policy is long dead and gone. There will be no late night shipments of $150 billion in cash and other currency in cargo planes headed for the mullahs in Tehran.
There will be no more bribes. There will be no European frolics for [former Secretary of State] John Kerry. There will be no United Nations. This is now a different time.
There will be hell to pay, and the world is watching. China, tonight, is watching; Russia, tonight, is watching. What happens in Iran will have ramifications all over the world. The North Koreans are watching.
Our economy is booming and because of the president's efforts to unleash American energy, we are in the best position we have ever been in as it relates to any conflict in the Middle East.
Iran's armed forces cannot match the might of our military. Now, the mullahs must see the writing is on the wall. They either stop funding terror, proxy wars, stop attacking ships in the Gulf of Oman, stop plotting the annihilation of Israel our closest ally in the Middle East and the United States.
If they do not end this hostility, if they do not stop, the mullahs of Iran will feel pain, I predict, like never before. And it will -- they will earn it. They will make it happen.
