Iran to Give “Fitting Response” to Hostile Trump Actions

October 11th, 2017

On Sunday, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said “(a)fter Mr. Trump declares his views, (virtually) clear what he wants to say, the Islamic Republic of Iran will give a fitting response at an appropriate time,” adding:

“The United States has had a policy of imposing (illegal) sanctions on Iran for the past 40 years. Basically, they have immunized us to US sanctions. But from a global perspective, it seems that the United States is addicted to sanctions.”It’s a hostile imperial tool, wielded like a sledgehammer, harming ordinary people most, foolishly thinking they’ll blame their government and rise up against it.

Instead, they support it more strongly, blaming America and its rogue allies for their criminal acts.

Countries like Iraq after the Gulf War, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Iran, Russia, China, North Korea and others are targeted by US venom.

Later this week, Trump intends decertifying Iran’s indisputable compliance with the nuclear deal - despite the IAEA multiple times explaining the country fully complies with its provisions.

Trump hasn’t a leg to stand on. He’ll act irresponsibly anyway, defying world community support for certification.

Decertification lets Congress decide on reimposing harsh sanctions. If done, Iran will respond appropriately.

On Saturday, President Hassan Rouhani said “(i)n (the) JCPOA agreement, we gained things and advantages that are irreversible. No one can reverse them, neither Mr. Trump nor anyone else.”

“If 10 other Trumps emerged in the world (and attempted to undo the deal’s benefits), the(‘d) be irreversible.”

Iranian Revolutionary Guard commander General Mohammad Ali Jafari warned Washington, saying “(i)f new sanctions go into effect, (the Pentagon) should move its regional bases (beyond) a 2000-kilometer radius, the range of Iranian missiles,” adding:

“If the news is correct about the stupidity of the American government in considering the Revolutionary Guards a terrorist group, then the Revolutionary Guards will consider the American army to be like Islamic State all around the world, particularly in the Middle East.”

It’ll eliminate any chance for bilateral cooperation “forever.” Washington repeatedly proves it can never be trusted.

Renegotiating the deal is out of the question. Iran sacrificed more than it got in return. It won’t yield more to unacceptable US demands.

The Israeli elephant and AIPAC are always in the room when issues of Iran are discussed with Washington and other Western countries.

Walking away from the nuclear deal or breaching its terms more flagrantly than already will put America at odds with the world community.
