Fox News Flash top headlines for May 15 are here.

Tom Cotton said Tuesday the USA could win a war with Iran in only "two strikes" amid simmering tensions between the two countries.

Comments by Cotton, an arch critic of the Iranian regime and the nuclear deal from which the Trump administration withdrew previous year, coincide with the increasing escalation between the two countries.

Viewers took to Twitter to express their dismay at the comments, and claimed Cotton is "dangerously delusional" for thinking the U.S. could start and finish a war with the nation of 81 million people (more than twice the population of Iraq) in two strikes.

Republican Tom Cotton, from Arkansas, was unequivocal in his assessment of the situation in an interview conducted after the USS Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group and a bomber task force were sent to the Persian Gulf, with the USS Arlington and the a battery of Patriot missiles also scheduled to join them. "Well, if Iran struck out militarily against the United States or against our allies in the region then I would certainly expect a devastating response". Instead, he claimed it would end after the "first strike and last strike".

Trump warned Iran on Monday afternoon that it will "suffer greatly" if the country does "anything" in the form of an attack, a remark that came in the wake of revelations that USA military experts suggested "Iran or its proxies" damaged four commercial ships off the coast of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Sunday.

The New York Times yesterday reported President Donald Trump was ready to deploy 120,000 USA troops to the Middle East if Iran launches attacks on United States forces in the region or goes through with its threat to resume work on nuclear weapons. A New York Times story last night reported the Trump administration is planning on sending 120,000 troops to the region to build up forces against Iran, which the president later said he would "absolutely" do but denied actually planning for it right now.

Mr. Cotton, who served two tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan, added he supports military intervention to help Iran "govern themselves".

The senator said he was not calling for war, just saying that the U.S. would win easily.

Responding to the question of whether war is inevitable, Cotton said that war is never inevitable and that it is always "the product of human choices".
