Defense Sec. Mark Esper: We’re Not Looking To Start A War With Iran, But We’re Ready To Finish One [VIDEO]

CNN reports:

“We are not looking to start a war with Iran, but we are prepared to finish one,” Defense Secretary Mark Esper told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour Tuesday.  He also insisted the US had evidence to justify the attack that killed Iranian General Qasem Soleimani in Iraq last week.

“I can assure you it’s more than razor thin, it’s persuasive. The fact of the matter is Soleimani was caught red handed.”

“One terrorist leader, of a terrorist organization meeting with another terrorist leader to synchronize and plan additional attacks on American diplomats, forces or facilities. I think we took the right action to remove these players from the battlefield,” he said.
