Appearing on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” former military intelligence analyst Malcolm Nance painted a grim portrait of what U.S. armed forces could expect if President Donald Trump follows national security adviser John Bolton’s advice to invade Iran.
Speaking with host Joy Reid, Nance said he had interactions with Iranian forces when he served, and said they would put up a fierce fight if Trump orders the military to invade.
Noting the president shot down a previous agreement with Iran, Nance pointed out that the Middle Eastern country has been girding for war.
“Iran is a competent, large-scale military with 3 million men,” he explained. “They have been preparing for a defensive war with the United States. As a nation, 83 million people will stand up against us.”
Nance also stated that the war could have a devastating impact across the region that would seriously impact the world’s financial markets.
“They will savage the oil fields of Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar and Kuwait,” he warned.

‘Left wing hack’: Fox News fans lose it after anchor calls Ukraine allegations ‘a problem’ for Trump
Fox News viewers lashed out at the network on Sunday after host Arthel Neville grilled New York Congressman Peter King (R) about President Donald Trump's alleged effort to get Ukraine to help him defeat Joe Biden.
Neville twice asked King about Trump's Ukraine scandal, and both times he evaded the question by saying that Congress does not have a right to know the details of Trump's conversations with foreign leaders.
On her third attempt, Neville got to the point by noting Trump's alleged actions are "a problem."
"We don’t know that it’s true, we hope it’s not true," the Fox News host said of the allegations against Trump. "But if there is a possibility that our president used his office to put pressure on a foreign government -- president-elect -- to dig into his possible, potential political opponent, then that’s a problem."
New York Times battered on MSNBC for pushing smear of Hunter Biden in order to maintain access to Trump
An "AM Joy" panel jumped all over the New York Times for pushing a widely debunked smear of Hunter Biden promoted by Donald Trump, saying the newspaper is more interested in maintaining their access to the Oval Office than debunking the lie.
Speaking with host Joy Reid -- who noted that her producers asked for comment from the Times but were rebuffed -- MSNBC regular Maria Teresa Kumar scorched the Times, as well as reporter Ken Vogel, for the uncritical parroting of the president's smear.
Ukrainian journalist throws down gauntlet after Giuliani smear: ‘I express my readiness to testify’
A Ukrainian journalist said on Sunday that he would be willing to testify to Congress against President Donald Trump's attorney, Rudy Giuliani.
After Giuliani unleashed a bizarre rant on CNN accusing Democrats of trying to get help from Ukraine in the 2016 election, Ukrainian journalist Serhiy Leshchenko wrote an op-ed exposing the accusation as a lie.
In his op-ed, Leshchenko explains:
Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine the Manafort revelations would become fodder for the U.S. elections in 2020. President Trump’s lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani, the mouthpiece of this campaign, is not only attempting to rehabilitate Manafort but is also working to undermine U.S. relations with Ukraine, which has been confronting Russian aggression on its own for more than five years. Giuliani and his associates are trying to drag our newly elected president, Volodymyr Zelensky, into a conflict between two foreign political parties, drastically limiting Ukraine’s room for maneuver in respect to the United States, perhaps its most important international partner.
