U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, issued the following statement regarding Iran.

"The Trump Administration is right to be making it very clear to Iran that these provocations don't lead anywhere good. General Soleimani is an evil bastard, but he’s not an idiot. He knows the U.S. military is able to bring his IRGC butchers to their knees if Americans are targeted. He should rethink his recent provocative moves."
