Retired Brig. Gen. Blaine Holt expressed strong views on the current tensions between Iran and the United States, criticizing the Biden administration for its handling of Iran during an appearance on Newsmax TV’s “American Agenda.”

His comments come in the context of escalating tensions, highlighted by President Joe Biden’s recent remarks anticipating a potential Iranian attack on Israel.

Holt criticized the financial engagements of both the Obama and Biden administrations with Iran, suggesting that the billions of dollars provided to Iran in attempts to secure a nuclear deal have only served to embolden Tehran’s aggressive stance towards the U.S. and its allies.

He remarked on Iran’s bold rhetoric and threats, underscoring a need for the U.S. to assert its dominance and discourage Iranian aggression effectively.

President Biden, meanwhile, has maintained a firm stance on defending Israel, responding to questions from reporters with a succinct “Don’t,” when asked about his message to Iran regarding potential attacks.

Biden emphasized the U.S.’s unwavering commitment to Israel’s defense, stating, “We are devoted to the defense of Israel. We will support Israel. We will help defend Israel, and Iran will not succeed.”

This firm declaration comes at a time when Israel is on high alert for possible retaliatory attacks by Iran or its proxies following an incident where a senior commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps’ Quds Force was killed in an attack on Iran’s embassy compound in Damascus.

Brig. Gen. Holt’s commentary aligns with a broader narrative of skepticism towards diplomatic engagements with Iran, reflecting a segment of U.S. political and military opinion that favors a more assertive stance against perceived threats from Tehran.

His views suggest a belief that the U.S. should leverage its military and political power to deter Iranian actions that could destabilize the region further.
