Recently, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) said that, not only should the US take military action against Iran, but that it would only take a few days, showing his lack of understanding of how war works.

On a recent episode of The Big Picture, host Thom Hartmann pointed how Cotton’s comments echo those of the GOP before the Iraq war. They could not have been more wrong about Iraq back then, and Sen. Cotton could not be more wrong about Iran now.
