In another string of empty complaints and threats, Iran is attempting to bare its teeth once again. This time it’s straight from the floor of the UN assembly room. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that a “single blunder” could “fuel a big fire” in the region.
How many times have we heard similar threats from Iran?
Iran’s president warns world leaders that security in the energy-rich Persian Gulf could collapse quickly with a “single blunder,” and accuses the U.S. of engaging in “merciless economic terrorism” against his country. https://t.co/FSGNSjb0fw pic.twitter.com/2iOtUGrGSW

The statement is in reference to what it perceives to be “mindless economic terrorism” enacted by the US against Iran. In truth, America is attempting to secure the Middle East and the heavily-populated trade routes in the region so all nations can enjoy safe access to them. When President Trump was asked to comment on Iran’s latest threat, he said that America is ready for peace when Iran is.
After four decades of failure, it is time for Iran’s leaders to step forward and to stop threatening other countries and focus on building up their own country. America is ready to embrace friendship with all who genuinely seek peace and respect. Many of America’s closest friends today were once our gravest foes. The US has never believed in permanent enemies.
The ball is in Iran’s court — where it’s always been — hopefully it ceases promoting empty threats.
