POTUS draws hard line in the sand with latest Iran remarks


For weeks, the Iranian regime has been harassing the international community with aplomb.

The nuisance that the government in Tehran represents is nothing new, but what has changed over the course of the last few weeks is the frequency of their actions and their chosen targets.  Iran’s near-constant harassment of the Middle East’s oil industry has seen at least four Saudi Arabian oil tankers, a similar Japanese vessel, and a pipeline targeted with explosives.

The attacks are likely meant to draw attention to Tehran as they grapple with the ramifications of a deteriorating nuclear deal with the world, and the hard-hitting sanctions that come with it.

Now, after an American drone was shot out of the sky by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, President Donald Trump is drawing a hard line in the sand over any further provocation.

President Trump is threatening to use “overwhelming force” against Iran, after Tehran lashed out at the U.S. over the latest round of sanctions against the regime.

“Any attack by Iran on anything American will be met with great and overwhelming force. In some areas, overwhelming will mean obliteration,” Trump tweeted.

Trump’s comments come after weeks of escalating confrontations between the U.S. and Tehran, culminating in Iran’s downing of a U.S. drone last week.

While Trump backed off of a potential military strike on Iran, the White House moved forward with sanctions against Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Monday.

Last week, President Trump averted a potential airstrike in Iran just 10 minutes before it was scheduled to proceed citing the possibility of 150 casualties, calling into question the appropriateness of such human damage for the loss of a drone.

The move also served as a subtle reminder for Iran of just how close they came to feeling the brunt of the US military.

Today’s reminder was not so subtle.
