Huckabee warns Iran of ‘gates of hell’

Republican candidate Mike Huckabee has warned Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) to prepare to face ‘the gates of hell’.

The former Arkansas Governor went to extremes in a South Carolina Republican debate in which he was asked about the Strait of Hormuz identification check incident.

“Be prepared, first, to put your sights on the American vessel. And then be prepared that the next thing you see will be the gates of Hell, because that is exactly what you will see after that,” said the embattled candidate.

The Pentagon backtracked on allegations that five IRGC speed boats had threatened to ‘blow up’ three US Navy warships, after US Navy spokesman Rear Adm. Frank Thorp IV said the apparent radio threat ‘may not have even come from Iranian boats at all’.

Political analysts believe that a series of conflicting messages by Huckabee will eventually hurt his chances of winning the GOP nomination.


“A war is just if there is no alternative, and the resort to arms is legitimate if they represent your last hope.” (Livy cited by Machiavelli)
