Trump warns Iran of “obliteration” should “any attack on anything American” occur (Video)

RT CrossTalk host Peter Lavelle and The Duran’s Alex Christoforou discuss US President Trump’s latest series of tweets that slam Iran as “ignorant” and “insulting”.

In an about face from last week’s restraint to go to war with Iran, Trump’s recent tweets warn of total and complete “obliteration” should any further attacks on American assets occur.

After Iran unceremoniously slammed the door on diplomacy, President Trump has decided to tweet his perspective on what happens next.

Trump began by going after the statement from Iranian leadership, blasting that they don’t “understand the words “nice” or “compassion,” they never have,” adding some threats: “Sadly, the thing they do understand is Strength and Power, and the USA is by far the most powerful Military Force in the world, with 1.5 Trillion Dollars invested over the last two years alone…”

Then Trump turned to the Iranian people, who are suffering due to his economic war being waged by sanctions: “….The wonderful Iranian people are suffering, and for no reason at all. Their leadership spends all of its money on Terror, and little on anything else,” reminding his 61 million followers that “The U.S. has not forgotten Iran’s use of IED’s & EFP’s (bombs), which killed 2000 Americans, and wounded many more…”

But he saved the best for last, unleashing a ‘sound-and-fury’-esque warning that ”

….Iran’s very ignorant and insulting statement, put out today, only shows that they do not understand reality. Any attack by Iran on anything American will be met with great and overwhelming force. In some areas, overwhelming will mean obliteration.”

Finally, Trump took a shot at the previous administration, who he blames for creating this mess (and argues still interfere):

“No more John Kerry & Obama!”

A genius moron, not the first for America’s political class but certainly the most boisterous.

I kind of like it this way. At least he wears his idiocy on his sleeve, unlike the rest.

Trump’s “knowledge” is a mile wide and an inch deep.
The statement “Lord, make my words tender and sweet for tomorrow I may have to eat them” is especially, especially important for world leaders.
The absolute tragedy of this is that Hillary worse by orders of magnitude. America was forced to pick the imbecile over the psychopath.
American elites need an attitude adjustment. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZFhubbRugak

Best it’s known, If they dare harm a hair on your head,

I’ll huff and I’ll puff and I’ll blow their house down!

No matter that you kick their doors in uninvited

Makes no difference, to me you’re still slighted

So be sure that they’ll not dare touch that hair on your head.

because Donald J. POTUS is the new sheriff in town!

Is it just my imagination or is a good part of the world starting to act like they’re cautiously walking around a pile of yankee doodle doodoo that some drunken dog walker left on the sidewalk?

“The U.S. has not forgotten Iran’s use of IED’s & EFP’s (bombs), which killed 2000 Americans, and wounded many more…” See this is how the neocons are manipulating Trump – and his political base – into accepting a war with Iran: play on the “support the troops” trope. I suspect that the incident last week where the US drone was sent in to penetrate Iranian air space, followed by a US Navy plane with 30-odd people aboard, was intended not just to get the drone shot down by Iran, but the following plane as well. Then Trump’s alleged desire not… Read more »

So Trump is said to have called off the strike on Iran in retaliation for its having shot down a U$ drone in its airspace because it would kill around 150 people, but he threatens to “obliterate” Iran?? Has he done any sums on the number of people he might kill out of Iran’s population of 81 million if his threats of “obliteration” were carried out? How about if he hadn’t pulled out of the nuclear agreement with Iran? How about if he hadn’t imposed sanctions? How about if he hadn’t sent warships and thousands of additional troops into the… Read more »

Oh, to be the psychiatrist whose couch Trump were to park himself on. 150 against a drone is a non-proportionate no no but 150,000 against one hair on an American head is a proportionate go go. Couch fodder indeed.
