Iran, the country that means "Land of Pond Scum Leaders" in Farsi, is continuing to verbally assault the US. The latest bravado come from the commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Mohammad Pakpour, yet another Muslim named after the prophet of Islam.
Pakpour spoke at a press conference in Tehran, where nobody insults the press unless they happen to be Ayatollah Ali Khamenie. He was quoted by the semi-official Fars news agency warning American officials to "be wise" and stop threatening Iran with military aggression.
"U.S. statesmen should be very wise and avoid threatening Iran because the entire world has admitted this fact that the Americans cannot do such a thing," the odiferous commander said, adding that attacking Iran would be "unwise."
Since the Trump administration recently imposed new sanctions on 25 scumcrumpets and companies connected to Iran's ballistic missile program and other who support the Revolutionary Guard Corps' Qods Force.
What Pakpour is saying that just because we captured your sailors, approached your naval vessels, imprisoned Americans on false charges, fired off ballistic missiles in violation of our agreement not to do so, and threatened you with military retaliation for being in international waters, don't think you can respond in kind.
Trump's sanctions were in response to Iran's ballistic missile test last week, violating UN Resolution 2231. It bars Iran from conducting ballistic missile tests for eight years and went into effect after the nuclear deal was signed.
Iran's Foreign Ministry were pissed over the sanctions and swore that they will also ensure "legal restrictions" were imposed on the "American individuals and companies which have a role in aiding extremist and terrorist groups or contribute to the suppression and murder of the defenseless people in the region."
I guess they don't want Americans taking away their jobs.
The so-called religious leader of the largest state sponsor of terrorism, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, dismissed the calls from the Trump administration to stop the ballistic missile tests and said Trump had showed the "true face" of America.
Iran threatened to attack Israel in response to an American attack on Iran. That sounds pretty stupid--Israel may be tiny compared to its surrounding enemies, but they pack a huge punch.
An Iranian official recently said they would immediately attack Israel if the United States "makes a mistake" and added that "only 7 minutes is needed for the Iranian missile to hit Tel Aviv."
Iran would love to have an excuse to attack Israel. They pray for this to happen sooner rather than later because Islam at its core, is an anti-Semitic religion. In fact, the very first prayer, al Fatiha, is anti-Christian and anti-Semitic all rolled into one.
But why would you punch your enemy's friend standing next to you if your enemy punches you first?
Anyway, I suspect Israel wouldn't wait for the punch to come--I suspect Netanyahu and Trump would actually speak to each other before any 'punches' are thrown and would coordinated an action that would shock and awe awful Iran in under 7 minutes.
