VIDEO: Fox’s Kilmeade slams Trump on scuttled Iran strike: ‘There are consequences for nonaction’

TheHill.com:

Fox News’s Brian Kilmeade on Friday criticized President Trump for his last-minute decision to call off retaliatory strikes against Iran, with the “Fox & Friends” co-host warning “there are consequences for nonaction.”

“I think by not doing something he is doing something,” Kilmeade said. “There are consequences for nonaction and there’s consequences for action. In the Middle East, a nonaction is looked at in many cases as weakness.”

The article goes on to state the following:

His remarks came after Trump said he decided against a military strike because he felt the possible death toll on the Iranian side would not be a proportionate response to Iran’s downing of an unmanned U.S. surveillance drone.”And the one quote that just sticks out with me, and it still holds up today, Thomas Jefferson to John Adams, he said, ‘If you don’t punish the first insult, more are sure to follow,’ Kilmeade said. “What we have seen is we didn’t punish the first insult and more are to follow.”Trump tweeted Friday morning that the U.S. military was “cocked & loaded” to retaliate against Iran. “We were cocked & loaded to retaliate last night on 3 different sights when I asked, how many will die. 150 people, sir, was the answer from a General. 10 minutes before the strike I stopped it, not proportionate to shooting down an unmanned drone,” Trump tweeted.
