Iran shoots back at Trump: ‘Color us unimpressed’

Iran shoots back at Trump: ‘Color us unimpressed’

"One council member has moved away from the deal", Skoog said of the Trump administration's withdrawal from the 2015 agreement, "so of course that makes it hard for the Council to express itself, but the great majority of Council members and certainly members of the United Nations are fully behind the deal that was struck".

When President Trump warned Iran over Twitter on Sunday night about severe consequences for any threats toward the United States, it did not just come out of the blue.

Trump's position that Iran is "not the same country anymore" is also a significant one, even if he didn't elaborate in this speech.

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Saturday supported Rouhani's suggestion of blocking oil shipments through the Persian Gulf if Iran is prevented from selling its oil by USA sanctions which come into effect in November.

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.

But the Iranians make Trump madder than North Korean leader Kim Jong-un does - not because they are more unsafe, but because they refuse to play along with him.

"We've been around for millennia & seen fall of empires, [including] our own, which lasted more than the life of some countries".

Syed Tahir Hussain Mashhadi said that European Union has behaved extremely well as far as the nuclear deal is concerned and they have stood by Iran and the agreement; they have said no to the United States.

"Europe isn't immune to Iran-backed terrorism".

In his tweet to Rouhani, Trump had threatened "CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE" if Iran continued to threaten the United States.

He tempered these remarks on Tuesday, saying: "We're ready to make a real deal" with Iran.

At his press conference with Kim in Singapore in June, Trump said: "I hope at the appropriate time after the sanctions kick in and they are brutal on what we put on Iran". He's author of the book, The Iranian Constitutional Revolution and the Clerical Leadership of Khurasani.

Democrats have expressed alarm about Trump's Iran bluster. It will resonate with a population that feels cheated out of the economic boon promised from the 2015 nuclear deal, and it's a reminder that America has no quarrel with Iranians, only their leaders.

MOTEVALLI: I think most ordinary Iranians are very anxious.
