Iran Issues Its Own Warning In Response To Trump Tweet

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani says there's no need to respond to US President Donald Trump's "empty threats".

Trump warned Iranian leadership, in a tweet in all capital letters, to never threaten the U.S again, or suffer the consequences.

Trump responded to this on Twitter, warning Iran that they faced dire consequences if they attempted to threaten the USA again and leaving no doubt that this was a line that the Iranian Regime should not attempt to cross.

In his tweet to Rouhani, Trump had threatened "CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE" if Iran continued to threaten the United States.

"COLOR US UNIMPRESSED", Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted Monday night, employing Trump's penchant to use all capital letters in his tweets. And Iranians have heard them -albeit more civilized ones-for 40 yrs.

In May, Trump - who has made Iran his public enemy number one - announced the United States withdrawal from what he called a "defective" multinational nuclear deal with Tehran, and moved to reinstate punishing sanctions.

Most Republicans have stayed silent on Iran following Trump's all-caps tweet warning the terrorist nation against threatening the USA again, but Graham came out in support of Trump for taking a tough stance.

Syed Tahir Hussain Mashhadi said that European Union has behaved extremely well as far as the nuclear deal is concerned and they have stood by Iran and the agreement; they have said no to the United States. The rhetoric is not particularly different from North Korea's, if more hollow: Iran, unlike North Korea, has no nuclear weapons, and there's no way it can hold off the U.S. conventional military might. "It's time to face the facts about Iran's malevolent regime", Pompeo added.

"War with Iran is an idea that has a lot of support among conservatives and members of Trump's cabinet". Unfortunately, that detail is not minor: It's the man Pompeo reports to, President Donald Trump.

"We are asking every nation who is sick and exhausted of the Islamic Republic's destructive behavior to join our pressure campaign". Money spent on operations throughout the Middle East, including on military forces based in Syria - a direct threat to Israel - is being felt on the domestic front, with the rial plunging this spring.

Pompeo, the former director of the Central Intelligence Agency, also used the speech to allege that the county's leaders have made billions of dollars from corrupt dealings.
