Trump Sends Rouhani Dire Warning, All Caps

For years Iran has remained relatively quiet with their threats to the United States, thanks in part to the Iran nuclear deal they signed three years ago.

U.S. President Donald Trump says Iran risks serious consequences if it makes more threats against the United States.

Tehran is already aware of what is coming from the administration as consequences of Trump's May withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear accord take shape. And Iranians have heard them -albeit more civilized ones-for 40 yrs.

Cmdr. Gen. Gholam Hossein Gheibparvar, a senior officer in Iran's Revolutionary Guards, dismissed Trump's remarks as "psychological warfare", CNN reported on Monday, citing Iran's semi-official INSA news agency.

Prominent Iranian political analyst Seed Leilaz downplayed the war of words, saying it was in his opinion "the storm before the calm".

Tensions with Iran have been high, in light of the country's repressed uprising this past winter, new revelations about the Iran deal, and continued pressure over the country's terrorist funding.

Netanyahu said that Trump and his secretary of state were taking a clear position against "Iranian aggression" after years in which the "regime was pampered by world powers".

In the meantime, the U.S.is stepping up Farsi-language outreach that is meant to support Iranians demonstrating against the policies of their government.

The tweet was reverberating across the Mideast.

Trump's fiery exhort came in response to Rouhani's own warning early Sunday to the United States leader not to "play with the lion's tail," saying that conflict with Iran would be the "mother of all wars".

He cited the harsh words between the USA and North Korea that preceded the high-profile summit between Mr Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and denuclearisation talks. "That small group who have been defeated by this insane president's psychological warfare should know that America will not be satisfied with anything less than our destruction", he said.

Mr Rouhani has suggested Iran may block Gulf oil exports if its own trade is disrupted, a proposal backed by the country's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. "BE CAUTIOUS!", he wrote.

At an event in Los Angeles on Sunday, Pompeo delivered a speech to a group of Iranian Americans entitled "Supporting Iranian Voices".

Trump has a history of firing off heated tweets that seem to quickly escalate long-standing disputes with leaders of nations at odds with the U.S.

He cited the harsh words between the U.S. and North Korea that preceded the high profile summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and denuclearization talks.

In the case of North Korea, she notes, the crisis was declared over despite any nuclear weapons being dismantled.

Meanwhile, the Iranian Foreign Ministry responded to another 'arrow' from Washington, this time coming from US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

He accused the United States of working to weaken and "overthrow" the clerical establishment and create divisions in the country.

The U.S.is set to reimpose economic sanctions on Iran in coming weeks, which will likely cause new problems for the country's struggling economy.

It also showed the widening gulf between the United States and other world powers that were part of the nuclear accord, which eased global economic pressures on Iran in exchange for curbs on its nuclear program.
