Iranian President Threatens U.S. With Mother Of All Wars

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani warned President Donald Trump against provoking his country

Iran Foreign Minister Javad Zarif then fired back in a tweet, saying that Iran is "unimpressed" by Trump's warning.

Tensions resurfaced this week after Iranian president Hassan Rouhani warned the U.S. faces with "mother of all wars".

The escalating tensions between the nations come after Trump withdrew the USA from the Iran nuclear deal earlier this year.

Iran's semi-official ISNA news agency quoted Mr Rouhani as warning Mr Trump on Sunday: "Do not play with the lion's tail or else you will regret it".

Trump withdrew in May from the 2015 nuclear deal created to stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons. Rouhani also said that a peace with Tehran is like "the mother of all peace".

Throughout his presidency, Trump has decried America's softening relationship with Iran.

As the New York Times noted,"last month the United States said it would impose sanctions on all exporters of Iranian oil".

"You are not in a position to incite the Iranian nation against Iran's security and interests", he added, in an apparent reference to those reported efforts by the U.S. to destabilise the Iranian government.

Fiat Chrysler replaces CEO Sergio Marchionne for health reasons
The CEO of Fiat since 2004, Marchionne has long said he planned to step down in 2019 as CEO of the FCA automobile manufacturer. Ferrari has announced that John Elkann has been appointed company chairman as Sergio Marchionne retires due to ill health.

Trump has long-promised to take a hard line against Iran.

Sanders went on to say the president consults with his national security team on a daily basis and is being very clear on what he will not tolerate from Iran.

"For years, this regime was pampered by the powers and it is good to see that the United States is changing this unacceptable equation", Netanyahu stated. In a speech sharply critical of Iran's leaders, Pompeo said that the US would make efforts to broadcast to Iranians in Farsi, circumventing the country's censorship laws, according to The Independent.

But Francona, the retired military intelligence officer, thought the "fire and fury" comments were not as heated as Trump's Iran tweet.

Pompeo, an arch-hawk and Iran critic, also promised United States support to any anti-government Iranian groups.

"The level of corruption and wealth among regime leaders shows that Iran is run by something that resembles the mafia more than a government".

"To our Iranian-American and Iranian friends: The Trump Administration dreams the same dreams for the people of #Iran as you do, and through our labors and God's providence they will one day come true", he tweeted.

Pompeo did say the USA was willing to talk with Iran, as Trump has said in the past, but real change can only come with change in the regime's behavior: "We are willing to talk with the regime in Iran, but relief from American pressure will only come when we see tangible, demonstrated and sustained shifts in Tehran's policies", he said.
