Iran is once again playing up their nuisance act for attention on the world’s stage, and President Trump isn’t having it.
After the President made good on his campaign promise to nullify America’s adherence to the disastrous Iran nuclear deal signed by Barack Obama, the figureheads in Tehran have been lashing out at the west. With Trump’s maneuver came heavy sanctions against the Persian nation, causing a bit of panic among the country’s high clerics and politicians.
In a North Korea-style bid for attention, Iran walked in the footsteps of terrorists, employing a series of explosive attacks to disturb the oil shipping lanes of the Middle East. President Trump admitted just days later that, after the downing of a US drone by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, he had ordered the military to stand down on a mission to strategically strike Iran.
This should have been the last hint needed to reign in Tehran’s leadership.
If it isn’t, however, the President has now intimated what a potential military action against Iran would look like.
U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that he was “not talking boots on the ground” should he take military action against Iran and that he had “unlimited time” to try to forge an agreement with Tehran.
Iran suggested it was just one day from breaching a threshold in the 2015 international nuclear deal that limited its stockpile of uranium, a move that would pressure European countries aiming to be neutral to pick sides.
The fate of the nuclear deal, under which Iran agreed to curbs on its nuclear program in return for access to international trade, has been at the heart of the dispute which took on a military dimension in recent weeks.
Last week Iran shot down a U.S. drone it said was in its air space, which Washington denied. Trump ordered retaliatory air strikes but called them off at the last minute, later saying too many people would have died.
The President still seems hesitant to have shots fired.

Asked on Fox Business Network if a war was brewing, Trump replied: “I hope we don’t but we’re in a very strong position if something should happen.”
