National Security Adviser John Bolton delivered a no-holds-barred warning to Iran at a major summit in New York on Tuesday, telling the regime in a fiery speech that “we are watching, and we will come after you” and that there will be “hell to pay” if it continues on its current course.
Bolton’s saber-rattling remarks came hours after President Trump, in his own dramatic address to the U.N. General Assembly, called on “all nations to isolate Iran’s regime as long as its aggression continues,” FOX NEWS reports.
“According to the mullahs in Tehran, we are ‘the Great Satan,’ lord of the underworld, master of the raging inferno. So, I might imagine they would take me seriously when I assure them today: If you cross us, our allies, or our partners; if you harm our citizens; if you continue to lie, cheat and deceive, yes, there will indeed be hell to pay.” ~ John Bolton
Tensions are quickly getting to a boiling point after Iranian President Hassan Rouhani blasted Washington for supporting the terrorist group responsible for the Saturday attack during military parades in Southwestern Iran, which killed 29 and wounded 70.
“The same will happen to Trump. America will suffer the same fate as Saddam Hussein! Iran will not abandon its defensive weapons … including its missiles that make America so angry.” ~ Iranian President Hassan Rouhani
The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) in a statement ensured that it would give a “deadly” and “unforgettable” response in revenge for the Saturday terrorist attack in Ahwaz city in Southwestern Iran which killed tens of people.
New Iran video threatens Israel, Gulf states with missile strikes and ‘heavy punishment’ following parade attack.
A threatening video showing a simulated Iranian ballistic missile strike on Israel and Saudi Arabia was posted to a pro-regime Twitter account Tuesday — but it was quickly yanked just hours ahead of a speech by the country’s president at the U.N. General Assembly.
The video, which was published and then deleted by the Fars news agency, comes in the aftermath of an assault during an Iranian military parade on Saturday that left 25 dead, including 12 members of the Islamic Republic’s Revolutionary Guard. Iran has charged the attack was carried out by militants trained by Israel and the Gulf states, and supported by the U.S. American officials deny having played any role.
