Not that I'm aware of.

He must really like picking fights with entire countries, and as a Canadian I can vouch for that.

While I agree with you that Trump is going crazy here (I reluctantly voted for him BECAUSE I wanted to avoid more middle eastern wars. One of the reasons I voted for him was because Trump wasn't interested in taking Assad dout), Iran last night apparently said a war with the USA would be the mother of all wars.  I am sick of these middle eastern wars.

“Don’t play with the lion’s tail, this would only lead to regret,” the Iranian leader said while speaking to Iranian diplomats on Sunday, local news agencies reported. “The Americans must understand well that peace with Iran is the mother of all peace, and war with Iran is the mother of all wars.”

However, no one ever mentions that the 1953 coup of Iran (instigated by Americans) REALLY messed up the region.

John Bolton is now backing up what Trump said:

Donald Trump plans to make Iran pay a price few countries have ever paid before, according to the US national security adviser, John Bolton, who doubled down on a late-night tweet in which the US president threatened Tehran.

Bolton’s statement was designed to show that Trump’s unexpectedly belligerent tweet was not a random act, or empty bluster but part of a considered move by the US administration to step up the economic, political and psychological pressure on Iran.

Bolton, a well-known hawk on Iran, told reporters in Washington: “I spoke to the president over the last several days, and President Trump told me that if Iran does anything at all to the negative, they will pay a price few countries have ever paid.”

If Trump goes full neocon I will vote Democrat for the first time ever.

Iran gave a speech last night where the president of Iran said something along the lines of a war with the US would be the war of wars.

Trump didn't just randomly decide to threaten Iran. He took that speech as Iran threatening us and thus he responded as the OP showed.

So what are we supposed to do, kill all the Iranians? That'd be outright, what do you call it, genocide.

I know Iran is lead by Holocaust deniers, but that doesn't mean we should wipe out their entire population.

Sure, Mr. "president", go ahead. Go ahead and provoke a nation with a massive nuclear arsenal that's ready to pull the trigger. It's not like they'll retaliate and fire at America, and it's not like Canada and Mexico will be caught in the blast zone, leading to all out nuclear war from all sides.

I swear this idiot is gonna get us all killed. -_-

Obama and Hillary said that Iran doesn't have nukes and that their great deal with Iran will prevent them from getting nukes......so either they are lying or you are....



Iran with a massive nuclear arsenal? Lol what?! Fuck Iran, we would crush those assholes.

I'm not lying, I'm just saying it's very likely Iran has nukes, and they're going to nuke us because of Trump's idiocy.

They don’t have nukes lol. I don’t know where he got that from.





Bet reminder: I bet with Tboned51 that Splatoon won't reach the 1 million shipped mark by the end of 2015. I win if he loses and I lose if I lost.

LOL, last week you people were all mad that he was to nice with Russia, a nuclear nation, and now you are mad that he is too strict. He probably shouldn't have written in all caps, but Iran is a threat to everyone. That is all i have to say on the matter

Last week people were mad that Trump undermined every single US intelligence, including the (Republican) House Intelligence Committee, unanimously reaching the conclusion that Russia in fact launched an attack on the US election. If there's any time to not question your intelligence, it's when they're all in agreance unanimously, and it pertains to an attack by a foreign hostile nation.

The complaints then from people who can only see things in black or white were "What, you wanted him to start a war with Russia?"
No, that's not what most people wanted him to say. We wanted him to say something like "I trust our intelligence, but these 12 individuals need to be properly investigated so we can get the full picture of what happened."
That would not incite a war or goad Putin in the slightest because Putin himself during that press conference offered to help USA with the investigation in regards to the 12 indicted GRU members. Of course, it was a terrible offer, but none the less. On the surface, there was an act of cooperation and compliance.

Speaking of that offer, Trump called it 'an incredible deal' multiple times. Handing over Americans to be interrogated by Russians in Russia was such an 'incredible deal' that a grand total of 0 members of the senate voted for it.

Anyway, the comment from Iran went like this:

"America should know that peace with Iran is the mother of all peace, and war with Iran is the mother of all wars"

There was a bit more to it, like "don't pull the lion's tail", which is a subject that's going to come up for Iran when USA recently broke their own peace agreement with Iran, even though Iran were inspected 11 times and confirmed to have upheld their end of the deal. Now there were some suspicions cast on them possibly breaking the agreements in secret, but if we're just sticking to the facts we have, USA broke the peace agreement, which can understandably be seen as a move to stirr up towards a war.  On top of that Trump appointed Bolton, who voted to go to war with Iran multiple times.

Anyway, my take on this is that Trump could very well respond to the comment in a similar fashion. But " CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED" is too much.

Iran can be called out without alluding to nuclear war, or whatever " CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED" is supposed to mean.
