It’s not Trump Iranians are anxious about - it’s their homegrown crises

It’s not Trump Iranians are anxious about - it’s their homegrown crises

Rouhani warned in a speech in the Iranian capital, Tehran, on Sunday that a conflict with Iran would be the "mother of all wars" and that the U.S. would "regret it" if it didn't stop escalating tensions with the country, prompting a response from Trump.

Javad Zarif tweeted: "COLOR US UNIMPRESSED: The world heard even harsher bluster a few months ago".

One of Trump's many criticisms of the accord, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, was that it did not do enough to stop Iran from funding extremist groups throughout the Middle East.

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

Trump on Sunday responded to threat from Iranian President Hassan Rouhani with an all-caps tweet, telling him to "never, ever" threaten the United States again.

Tensions are mounting between Donald Trump and Iran - the U.S. president's raw tweet threatening Tehran was met Monday with a similarly bilious reply, upping the ante in the high-stakes game of diplomatic chicken.

As CBS News correspondent Elizabeth Palmer reports, on Tuesday a spokesman for Iran's Foreign Ministry said there would be "equal countermeasures" if the usa pushes ahead with attempts to block Iranian oil exports.

A senior commander of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards reacted angrily to Trump's threats by saying Tehran would continue to resist its enemies, Iran's Students news Agency ISNA reported.

Trump called the comments "DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH".

With popular discontent over Iran's faltering economy and sliding currency, and the prospect of tough new USA sanctions, Iran's leaders have called for unity. Stand up to them through the entire mid-East.

The White House blamed Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Monday for provoking warlike threats from President Trump, as the administration sought to step up economic and political pressure on Iran in a campaign similar to the strategy that brought North Korea to the nuclear bargaining table.

Many Iranians are anxious that the war of words might lead to a conflict. "If anybody's inciting anything, look no further than to Iran", press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters. Leilaz told The Associated Press he was not "worried about the remarks and tweets", and that "neither Iran, nor any other country is interested in escalating tensions in the region".

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu expressed his support for Trump's and Pompeo's warnings to Iran in a statement at the cabinet meeting Monday morning.

Those accusations seem to have prompted Rouhani to counter-attack, in which he questioned whether the USA can embrace Iran's people while fighting its government - an idea that was put forth in Pompeo's speech.

Pompeo compared Iran's government to the mafia and said he supported the Iranian protesters who have taken to the streets for months. This response reflects a long-held Iranian view that Republicans are easier to deal with than Democrats, less beholden to such inconvenient ideas as human rights, and more attuned to the needs of the oil industry.

And in 2013, Trump floated invading Iran as an alternative to striking Syria.
