Sarah Sanders: Trump Will Not Tolerate 'Empty Threats' From Iran

  • Iranian President Hassan Rouhani attends a news conference in Vienna Austria

Bitter foes since Iran's 1979 revolution, Washington and Tehran have cranked up talk of war in recent days.

Both the tweet and the speech landed less than two weeks before the administration will begin re-imposing sanctions on Iran that had been lifted under the 2015 nuclear deal.

Trump was tweeting hours after Rouhani made a speech saying that hostile United States policies towards Iran could lead to the "mother of all wars".

Rouhani had also warned Trump to stop "playing with the lion's tail" and threatening Iran, "or else you will regret it".

"America should know that peace with Iran is the mother of all peace, and war with Iran is the mother of all wars", he added.

Rouhani suggested that Iran has alternatives to shipping crude through Hormuz. "Empty/ridiculous USA rhetoric in response to same from Iran". To distract from the Helsinki disaster, he has launched a childish all-caps Twitter tirade against Iran.

"Whenever Europe has sought an agreement with us, the White House has sown discord", Rouhani said.

While Trump isn't a position to get re-elected until 2020, the president's idea of stoking Iran for a boost in poll numbers could certainly be on his mind.

I think maybe my mistake was talking about what we expected going forward from him, not necessarily about the trade", Ujiri added. And clearly Ujiri thinks highly of DeRozan, as he also called him the "greatest player" in Raptors franchise history.

"You can not provoke the Iranian people against their own security and interests", Mr. Rouhani said in a televised speech on Sunday, ahead of Mr. Pompeo's address. He also promised support for Iranians unhappy with their government.

Iran's most powerful authority Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei ruled out negotiations with the United States as an "obvious mistake". "They are stealing from the people in Iran", U.S. Sen. US officials note the difficulty the military faced in Iraq after its invasion in 2003.

Pompeo insisted the U.S. would have no qualms in targeting Iran's top leadership with sanctions, and said the Trump administration was launching a 24/7 Farsi-language channel on TV, radio, digital and social media formats to reach Iranians in Iran and around the globe.

All other parties to the deal - Russia, Britain, France, Germany and China - have sought to keep the deal in effect, saying it is working as intended by preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons for now.

Pompeo compared Iran's government to the mafia and said he supported the Iranian protesters who have taken to the streets for months. It could also distract from other USA national security priorities, including Russian Federation and North Korea.

With the rial plummeting further against the United States dollar, water and electricity shortages rendering further public dissent, and a new round of truck drivers' strike launching on Monday, Iran's domestic calamites are dangerously coupling with its escalating foreign isolation.

"This seems to be a little out of character and really a little alarming for many people", said Francona, a former US Air Force intelligence officer who worked in the Middle East and retired as a lieutenant colonel.
