The other war of words over Iran

The other war of words over Iran

Separately, Iran's parliamentary speaker on Tuesday described Trump's comments as "the words of a troublemaker".

Limbert was among those held captive at the U.S. Embassy in Tehran during the 1979-1981 Iran hostage crisis, and more recently advised the Obama administration. Yet animosity directed at the Iranian leadership is an established part of the administration's broader foreign policy.

However, National Security Advisor John Bolton echoed the president's tough rhetoric in a statement Monday. A more significant set of sanctions that will hit Iran's oil industry and central bank by punishing countries and companies that do business with them will resume November 4.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif responded with a tweet that included some all-caps punctuation of his own. And Iranians have heard them -albeit more civilized ones-for 40 yrs.

"War with Iran is an idea that has a lot of support among conservatives and members of Trump's cabinet".

She said it's important that the community comes together because residents of Greektown need support and positivity. Police have not said if Hussain died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound or if officers killed him.

US, North Korea to restart joint searches for soldiers' remains, Pompeo says
North Korean officials skipped a planned meeting with U.S. officials over the war remains last week, citing lack of preparations. Official U.S. statistics show that 7,699 American personnel remain unaccounted for following the 1950-53 conflict.

There was also a relatively quick response from Leonard's camp, indicating that he has no desire to play in Toronto. Buford publicly stating on draft night that the franchise had every intention to keep Leonard in San Antonio.

But for one nagging detail, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's speech on Sunday about Iran stands as one of the finest moments in U.S. -Iran relations since the 1979 revolution.

With the economic pressure, Mr Trump said earlier this month that "at a certain point they're going to call me and say 'let's make a deal, ' and we'll make a deal". We've been around for millennia & seen fall of empires, incl our own, which lasted more than the life of some countries. The "eight times" could be a bit of poetic license, but the Washington Post, too, reported past year that Trump had been interested in a meeting and asked French President Emmanuel Macron to broker it; that didn't work either. And Saudi Arabia, whose leaders have worked to build a cozy relationship with Trump, has been after Trump to curb Iran's influence in the region.

This shows that the U.S. policy on Iran is peaceful and democratic regime change, something long advocated by Iranian dissidents, including the National Council of Resistance of Iran.

The US is regularly suspected of backing the idea of regime change, but analysts say its current stance may simply be an attempt to pivot after a week of dire headlines over Trump's much-maligned summit with Russia's Vladimir Putin and a relative lack of progress on North Korea.
