U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, spoke on the floor of the U.S. Senate about Iranian aggression against the United States.

“Over the past year, the Iranian regime has been increasingly aggressive, attacking oil tankers in the Persian Gulf, shooting down a U.S. drone, seizing a British tanker, attacking a Saudi oil facility, attacking U.S. military bases in Iraq and storming the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad,” he said summarizing Iran’s recent actions against the United States.

He criticized the U.S. response to Iran prior to targeting and killed Iranian General Qasem Soleimani.

“The U.S. response to Iran’s increasing provocations had been too measured, to the point that we risked Iran’s leaders mistaking restraint for weakness and encouraging further escalation,” Grassley noted.

He pointed out intelligence reports that indicated Iran had additional attacks planned.

“Another attack that risked many American lives was in the works when President Trump ordered U.S. forces to take out the terrorist mastermind of the Iranian regime,” Grassley said.

“Sometimes you have to stand up to a bully to get him to back off or else you invite further aggression,” he concluded.
