During the Wednesday afternoon White House press briefing, General Michael Flynn issued this stark warning: “As of today, we are officially putting Iran on notice.”
“Recent Iranian actions, including a provocative ballistic missile launch and an attack against a Saudi naval vessel conducted by Iran-supported Houthi militants underscore what we should have been clear to the international community all along about Iran’s destabilizing behavior across the Middle East,” Flynn said.
After bashing the Obama administration as well as the United Nations for being “weak and ineffective,” Flynn then concluded in the statement in front of the press, “We are officially putting Iran on notice.”
