Fox’s Pete Hegseth Threatens Iran: ‘Maybe Your Second General Is Next’
Fox News’ Pete Hegseth has suggested that the U.S. could kill another Iranian general. While discussing the death of Qassem Soleimani with Stuart Varney on Fox Business, Hegseth said he was ‘fired up’ by the attack and that Iran could suffer more attacks.
“Maybe your second general is next if you continue to try to kill Americans,” Hegseth said.
“We are the top dog. You respond to us, not the other way around,” he said.

“Bring the fire, Hegseth!” Varney replied.
“I’m fired up. Because the president brought the fire!” Hegseth said.
The killing of Soleimani, head of the al-Quds forces of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, is widely expected to see major retaliation from the country targeted at American citizens.
