Independent news anchor Tucker Carlson has warned the American people that it now “looks like we’re actually going to war with Iran.”
During the latest episode of his hit show on Monday, Carlson asks whether “we are ready for this?”
Iran has become increasingly drawn into the conflict between Israel and the terrorist group Hamas.
The Iranian regime has repeatedly threatened the United States after its proxy army Hamas launched a terror attack on Israel.
The attacks have killed more than 1,300 Jews.
Iran-back terrorist groups have been ramping up aggression in the region.
Last Wednesday night a U.S. Navy destroyer on the coast of Yemen in the Red Sea was targeted by Islamic terrorists.
Several missiles were fired at the USS Carney.
The missiles were launched by Iran-backed Houthi terrorists in Yemen, according to a U.S. official.
Approximately 2-3 missiles were intercepted, the Pentagon confirmed.
Pentagon Press Secretary, Brigadier General Pat Ryder has Confirmed that the USS Carney did Shoot Down 3 Land-Attack Cruise Missiles as well as several Drones launched by Houthi Forces in Yemen last night over the Red Sea.

On Saturday, Democrat President Joe Biden’s Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin issued a statement regarding the U.S. response.
Austin announced a series of actions aimed at bolstering the U.S. military presence in the Middle East.
Secretary of State Antony Blinken also admitted over the weekend that the Biden administration is 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,” Blinken said.
Speaking Monday night, Carlson said it appears war with Iran is now imminent.
“We seem to be heading to war with Iran,” Carlson said during his opening monologue.
“Certainly, the Biden Administration is pushing us in that direction.
“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.”
Carlson then played a clip of Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) suggesting the U.S. may bomb Iran’s oil refineries.
