Iran says Trump 'won't dare' attack despite all-caps threat to Rouhani

As the meme spread, one user found the ideal photo to help us imagine Mr Trump screaming the words in real life. This is a president who wants to work with other world leaders.

That was assumed to be a response to a speech by President Hassan Rouhani earlier in the day warning Washington not to "play with the lion's tail" and that conflict with Iran would be the "mother of all wars".

Mr Rouhani suggested peace was still possible and said: "America must understand well that peace with Iran is the mother of all of peace, and war with Iran is the mother of all wars". "Empty/ridiculous U.S. rhetoric in response to same from Iran".

Tensions are mounting between Donald Trump and Iran - the United States 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. Gen. Amir Hatami said the US does "not understand anything but the language of force", according to the semi-official Fars News Agency.

"We will never abandon our revolutionary beliefs". "We will resist pressure from enemies".

Washington, he said, is seeking to demoralize Iranians and interfere with Iran's economy through threats so it can fan public discontent inside the country.

It's tempting to compare Trump's Iran strategy to his "madman" North Korea strategy, given he pledged to "totally destroy" and inflict "fire and fury" upon Kim Jong Un's regime before sitting down at the negotiating table.

Representative Jim Jordan , whose tenure as an assistant wrestling coach at the university overlapped with Strauss' time there. Through his campaign committee, Jordan has retained a PR firm to help deal with the political fallout from the OSU scandal.

Mr Trump alleged that the deal did not restrict Iran's "destabilising activities" in the region enough, and could not detect or prevent any breaking of the terms of the deal.

Speaking to OneNewsNow after that exchange, Wicker says he supported the words of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo who said Sunday that a thuggish regime is running Iran, a country of approximately 80 million. In light of these protests and 40 years of regime tyranny, I have a message for the people of Iran: "The United States hears you; the United States supports you; the United States is with you".

Iran was the second-biggest oil supplier to Indian State refiners between April and June, Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said on Monday, as Tehran's steep discounts meant it replaced Saudi Arabia in second place.

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.

It was the concern that sanctions could be reinstated that led to Mr Rouhani's warning.

Iran has hit back at Donald Trump after the President warned Tehran to "never, ever threaten the USA again" in an all-caps Twitter outburst that raised the specter of war.

"Due to their lack of awareness about the depth of political affairs and diplomacy, some politicians use certain words, whose meaning they do not know", the official said.
