WASHINGTON = This week during DC foreign policy conference. newly re-elected Congressman Adam Kinzinger (IL-16) told attendees it is time for nuclear-boasting Iran to be confronted, the Washington Free Beacon reports.
Iran should be warned that “You become a good actor in the region, or you face the consequences,” Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R., Ill.) said during the discussion, which was organized by the Foreign Policy Initiative (FPI).
Iran is responsible for stoking hostilities across the Middle East and arming scores of anti-American militants, Kinzinger said.
“Everything that’s happening in the region … it’s really a proxy war right now against Iran,” said Kinzinger, who is a member of the Air National Guard. “The bad player in every one of these examples [of hostility] is Iran.”
Kinzinger cited as examples of hostility Tehran’s giving sophisticated missiles to Hamas terrorists and throwing its support behind the embattled regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
“I think it’s time to confront Iran,” he said.
