From the June 21 edition of Fox News' Fox & Friends:

STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): We are back with a Fox News alert. With tensions rising in the Middle East, President Trump made a last-minute decision, apparently, to stand down. No military strike against Iran last night.

AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): The operation reportedly in full swing when the order was given last night at about 7:30 p.m.

JOEY JONES (RETIRED MARINE): Listen, I deployed to Afghanistan, I deployed to Iraq. I don't want to see anyone deploy. I think if Iran provoked us to that point, it would be a pretty quick and easy war, I really do believe that. I believe that Israel has a lot of firepower and would be right there with us. But I think that that's not the obvious solution. The obvious solution is, can we continue to pressure them? You know, I think their currency is down 60% now.

DOOCY: They're hurting.

JONES: Things like groceries and medication are up 60%. And so, you know, when you wound an animal -- I'm a hunter -- when you wound an animal, it doesn't lay there and say please kill me. It tries to bite you, but it's wounded, so it can't. And that's what we see in Iran right now. They do not have the power to do what they want to do, and they're lashing out. And hopefully it's the last, fleeting bite, not anything more.
