President Trump announced Wednesday afternoon that Iran, the world's largest state sponsor of terrorism, is planning an attack on U.S. troops in Iraq.

While Iran's population suffers from Wuhan coronavirus, with one of the worst death rates in the world, their terrorist regime is prioritizing attacks. American politicians sympathetic to the regime have called for sanctions relief, sanctions put in place to stop Iran's nuclear program and terror activities, until the pandemic ends. These same politicians have failed to acknowledge the regime has rejected outside humanitarian aid, where sanctions do not apply.

Tensions with the country have been ramping up for nearly a year and Iranian proxy groups have launched hundreds of attacks in the Middle East since last summer. In February, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visited Saudi Arabia and met with newly stationed U.S. troops at Prince Sultan Air Base.
