Iran has been making some threats against the United States. Here’s President Trump’s response…
The country that leads the world in funding terrorism is getting pretty bold in taunting the United States.
Last week, Politico reported that a briefing to lawmakers included a “credible and imminent threat” from Iran and its proxies against the U.S. On the floor of the Senate, Sen. Marco Rubio(R-FL) said that the threat was “serious and potentially imminent” and that the Trump administration is right to reposition military assets in order to be in a position to retaliate if an attack occurs.
The New York Post reported that on Saturday a top Iranian official was used a cruel 9/11 imagery to mock the American political system.
“The [US political] system has an apparently huge body, but suffers from osteoporosis,” Revolutionary Guard head Gen. Hossein Salami told the Fars news agency. “In fact, the US is like World Trade Building that collapses with a sudden hit.”
The remark came as tensions between Iran and the United States escalated.
But while Salami claimed the American system “has cracked and lost its strength,” Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif said his country is “not seeking war,” according to the state-run IRNA news agency.
President Trump is squashing the talk with his own bold language.
If Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end of Iran. Never threaten the United States again!

Former CIA Director, David Patreus, has said that Iran needs to be very careful as tensions rise with the Trump administration because it could “going to get worse” for them if they do something dumb.
“They are going to have to make a decision. Either they are going to have to really tighten their belt and keep tightening, because it’s going to get worse,” Petraeus said on ABC’s “This Week.” “There are going to be further screws tightening down in maximum pressure campaign and try to grit their teeth and get to November 2020 in hopes that their desired outcome emerges.”
He added: “They’re going to have to be very careful not to overplay their hand and result in some kind of response that is quite punitive.”

The Trump administration sent a carrier strike group and a bomber squadron to the Middle East in response to escalations in the region, including between Israelis and Palestinian militants in the Gaza strip. The move was to be a “clear and unmistakable message” to Iran.
“In response to a number of troubling and escalatory indications and warnings, the United States is deploying the USS Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group and a bomber task force to the U.S. Central Command region to send a clear and unmistakable message to the Iranian regime that any attack on United States interests or on those of our allies will be met with unrelenting force,” Bolton said. “The United States is not seeking war with the Iranian regime, but we are fully prepared to respond to any attack, whether by proxy, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, or regular Iranian forces.”

Last week, several ships were bombed of the coast of the United Arab Emirates. The initial U.S. assessment, as well as that from a foreign entity, says that Iran or Iranian-backed proxies committed the bombings.
