Trump's Concerted Campaign To Provoke Iran

Iran general warns Donald Trump: 'US will regret threatening Tehran' | Daily Star

Iran has faced increased USA pressure and looming sanctions following Trump's decision to withdraw the United States from a 2015 worldwide deal over Iran's nuclear program.

Calling the accord as an "embarrassment" that was "defective at its core", the US President then warned of severe consequences if Iran resumed its nuclear programme.

"If America wants to take a serious step in this direction it will definitely be met with a reaction and equal countermeasures from Iran", he was quoted as saying by the state news agency IRNA.

"This is a moment in history".

The tweet in all-caps followed an apparent warning by Rouhani, in which he asked the US President to "not play with the lion's tail, because you will regret it eternally". Or when the U.S. Navy fired warning shots at speedy Iranian military boats.

"The United States under President Trump will not stay silent either", he said.

Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Commander Mohammad Bagheri also vowed to implement a "strong, unimaginable and regrettable" response from Tehran.

Trump Walks Back Controversial Comments On Russian Election Interference
The admission came in the White House Cabinet Room, where Trump was sitting with lawmakers for an otherwise unrelated meeting. That remark was one of many in which Trump distanced himself from the conclusions of the USA intelligence agencies.

"We've been around for millennia & seen fall of empires, [including] our own, which lasted more than the life of some countries".

In the case of North Korea, the verbal war cooled quickly and gradually led to the high-profile summit and denuclearization talks. "Now, if you believe that, I have some Florida real estate I could sell you", he said. Before the nuclear deal, the USA was punishing Iran with the help of allies and even some adversaries.

Democrats have expressed alarm about Trump's Iran bluster.

The Iran nuclear deal was signed between six countries in 2015 - Iran, US, Britain, Germany, Russia, France, and China- for lifting economic sanctions on Tehran in exchange for limitations to the country's nuclear programme.

The analyst added that "neither Iran, nor any other country is interested in escalating tensions in the region". "The Trump administration's Iran policy seeks to address the totality of these threats and malign activities and to bring about a change in the Iranian regime's behavior".

But Ghaemi, speaking via Skype, said the Trump administration's other policies hurt average Iranians.

"The US and Saudi Arabia and the Arab world with all their money and all their might could not dent Iran and the country was victorious in the long struggle, all alone they were able to take on the whole world at that time, so I don't know why Trump threatens a country like that", said the former lawmaker.
