Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson added more weight to fears of an impending WW3 as he told his viewers to be ready because it “Looks like we’re actually going to war with Iran.”
Tucker isn’t wrong.
As The Daily Fetched recently reported, Iran’s threats to Israel and the United States have become increasingly overt over the past few days, most notably after Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri, the head of the Iranian Armed Forces, said the American support for Israel could “make other actors intervene,” namely Russia and China.
It’s also worth noting that the president of Iran, Ebrahim Raisi, said the “termination of Israel is imminent.”
Nir Barkat, Israel’s Minister of Economy, responded by saying they would “wipe them off the face of the earth” if they joined Hamas’ war against Israel.
“If we find they intend to target Israel, we will not just retaliate to those fronts, but we will go to the head of the snake, which is Iran,” Barkat said.
“The Ayatollahs in Iran are not going to sleep good at night, we are going to make sure they pay a heavy price if, God forbid, they open the northern front.”
Last week, missiles were fired at the USS Carney, a US Navy destroyer on the coast of Yemen in the Red Sea.
The missiles were launched by Iranian-backed Houthi militants in Yemen, according to a US official.
Over the weekend, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin announced a series of actions to bolster the US military presence in the Middle East following the missiles fired at a US Navy destroyer by Iranian-backed militants.
Meanwhile, Secretary of State Antony Blinken admitted that they are concerned about an escalation with Iran.
“In fact, we expect that there’s a likelihood of escalation by Iranian proxies directed against our forces, directed against our personnel,” he said.
We are seeing undeniable signs of a major war, and Tucker Carlson thinks the same.
“We seem to be heading to war with Iran,” Tucker said.
“Certainly, the Biden Administration is pushing us in that direction.”
Tucker then plated a clip of Senator Lindsey Graham saying the US might need to bomb Iran’s oil refineries.
“What’s new and interesting and ominous is that very few Republicans – the opposition party, are pushing back.”
“Instead, some of the party’s leaders are encouraging it,” Tucker said.

World War Three
Iran’s foreign minister issued a major warning to Israel last week.
The chilling message was posted on X, formerly known as Twitter, by Hossein Amir-Abdallohian the day after a missile strike at a Gaza City hospital, which caused hundreds of deaths.
“After the terrible crime of the Zionist regime in the bombing and massacre of more than 1,000 innocent women and children in the hospital, the time has come for the global unity of humanity against this fake regime more hated than ISIS and its killing machine.”
“Time is OVER!” he warned.
پس از جنایت هولناک رژیم صهیونیستی در بمباران و قتلعام بیش از هزار نفر از زنان و کودکان بیگناه در بیمارستان #المعمدانی زمان برای اتحاد جهانی بشریت علیه این رژیم جعلی منفورتر از داعش و ماشین کشتارش فرارسیده است.— H.Amirabdollahian امیرعبداللهیان (@Amirabdolahian) October 17, 2023
!Time is OVER
The Iranian Embassy in Syria later tweeted, “Time is up” in both Hebrew and Arabic.
