Tough luck, Iran. You no longer have a patsy in the White House.
Oh, and about that ‘Ironclad’ peace deal you hammered out with your new ‘friends’. Thanks, Obama.
Russia and Iran weren’t real happy about the missile strike in Syria.
If Russia wants to have a conversation about why Syria was hit with airstrikes, they might want to BEGIN that conversation by explaining why Syria still has chemical gas in the first place. Wasn’t it their job in 2013 to make sure there wasn’t? How about they have a big ol’ cup of shut up while they mull that over?
Now, for Iran.
They’ve got their panties in a twist over the missile strike, do they? They’re threatening to escalate, are they?
Iran has called on Syria to ‘make Americans regret their attack’ after Russia warned Donald Trump there will be a military response if the US strikes at Assad again.
President Hassan Rouhani accused the US of not acting ‘within international frameworks’ before condemning America’s surprise bombardment of a Syrian airbase.
It comes after both Russian and Iranian forces warned Trump they would retaliate with military action if the US President launched more strikes against Bashar al-Assad’s forces.
Rouhani said: ‘Americans have never acted within international frameworks, and one instance is the sanctions they impose against Iran, unreasonably considering themselves as the world’s leader.
‘The Syrian people and army must give a response (to the US) that makes Americans regret their attack.’ —DailyMail
Did an Iranian just utter the phrase ‘within international frameworks’? That’s a joke, right?
They have a national celebration where untold thousands pour into the streets chanting ‘death to America’. Remember?
If you thought anti-American sentiment in Iran had waned after the nuclear deal and the lifting of sanctions, you could be wrong.
Tens of thousands of Iranians marched in Tehran’s Azadi Square Thursday, chanting “Death to America and Israel” and waving anti-Western placards on the 37th anniversary of the country’s 1979 Islamic revolution. — Source
What did Tillerson have to say in response?
Speaking today, ahead of a Group of 7 meeting in Italy, Tillerson said: ‘We rededicate ourselves to holding to account any and all who commit crimes against the innocents anywhere in the world.’
That was a G7 Meeting. Notice who wasn’t there? Russia.
So who exactly is trying to lecture America on international relations? You guessed it. These guys.
In light of that, Iran’s probably better off looking over their shoulder than down their nose. We haven’t forgotten that shameful treatment of the navy:
On January 12, 2016, two U.S. Navy riverine command boats were “taken into custody” by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards’ Navy near Farsi island in Persian Gulf. An Iranian state-run news outlet reported that 10 U.S. sailors had been “arrested” even though Iranian and U.S. officials said that none of the sailors were harmed and that they would be released promptly. –Wiki
And if push really does come to shove? Iran will learn pretty quickly that payback is a BITCH.
