Ayatollah Khamenei (Jan 2018)A national defense analyst does not believe the Iranian regime is willing to go toe to toe with the United States right now despite its recent provocative moves.

General Frank McKenzie, commander of U.S. Central Command, recently told reporters that he remains concerned about Iran's potential for aggression and he would not rule out requesting additional U.S. forces to bolster defenses against Iranian missiles or other weapons.

"I don't actually believe the threat has diminished,” McKenzie warned. “I believe the threat is very real."

The U.S. has blamed Iran for last month's attacks on oil tankers in a United Arab Emirates port.

Bob Maginnis, senior fellow for national security at the Family Research Council, agrees with McKenzie’s assessment. It appears Iran is carrying out a campaign against the U.S., he says.

“And that campaign is coordinated and synchronized and is widespread,” he warns.

Maginnis says clearly the lines are being drawn.

"I don't know that the ayatollah and his minions in Tehran are going to go toe to toe with the United States without significant backing,” he says, “and therefore I think they're going to keep it at a low ebb."
