As tensions between the U.S. and Iran grow heated, Florida Senator Rick Scott (R-Fla.) urged leaders in the Islamic Republic not to engage in hostilities against America, pointing out that the U.S. has the deadliest armed forces in the world.
While giving an interview on Fox News, Scott — the former governor of Florida who sits on the Senate Armed Forces Committee — was pressed by Harris Faulkner for his thoughts on an Iranian military official’s comment that Iran is preparing for “an all-out confrontation” with the U.S.
