Tucker Carlson and retired Army Colonel Douglas MacGregor questioned whether the United States is ready for war with Iran, adding that the United States is likely to enter into a conflict with Iran.
Carlson, co-founder of the Daily Caller and the Daily Caller News Foundation, cited his call to attack Iranian oil refineries in response to Hezbollah’s attack on Israel or in the event of a hostage crisis. It aired a video of Senator Lindsey Graham defending the Hamas launched deadly attacks on multiple locations in southern Israel on October 7, killing at least 1,400 people and taking more than 200 hostages.

“Do you think we’re heading toward war with Iran?” Carlson asked McGregor on the latest episode of “Tucker on X.” Posted “Looks like we’re actually going to war with Iran. Are you ready?”
“Yes, that’s right,” McGregor said. “And the chosen destination certainly seems like Armageddon. There doesn’t seem to be any practical impact for us and, frankly, for Europe and the world and the Middle East.”
Mr McGregor warned against US involvement in any war, saying it would likely trigger an all-out war with Russia.
“The bottom line is we have to think through this thoroughly, but everyone is emotional right now,” McGregor said. “As far as I know, I haven’t thought of anything. Perhaps surprisingly, the only exception is Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.”
Mr McGregor said President Erdogan had offered to mediate between Turkey and Hamas.
“Are we in a strong position or not?” Carlson asked.
“No, I don’t think we’re in a strong position,” McGregor said. “I think we’re probably at our weakest point in recent history.”
