Iran is world’s biggest state sponsor of terrorism, US says

Mattis made Justin cry.

US Defence Secretary James Mattis has called Iran the world’s “biggest state sponsor of terrorism”, amid rising tensions between the two nations.

His comments come a day after the Trump administration imposed new sanctions against Iran in response to a ballistic missile test.

But Mr Mattis said he did not see any need to boost US troop numbers in the Middle East to deal with Iran.
