US to Attack Iran If It Targets “Anything American”: Trump

US President Donald Trump warned Iran on Tuesday that it would meet with “great and overwhelming force” if it targets anything belonging to Washington.

“Any attack by Iran on anything American will be met with great and overwhelming force. In some areas, overwhelming will mean obliteration,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

The US leader’s comments came after Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that Washington’s sanctions against Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and other senior officials had made it impossible to begin talks with the US.

“Today, the Americans have become desperate and confused,” Rouhani said in a televised address. “This has made them take unusual measures and talk nonsense,” Rouhani said.

In response to comments by Rouhani in which he said on Tuesday that they are not afraid of the US, Trump noted that his country is the “most powerful military force in the world.”

“Iran leadership doesn’t understand the words “nice” or “compassion,” they never have. Sadly, the thing they do understand is Strength and Power, and the USA is by far the most powerful Military Force in the world, with 1.5 Trillion Dollars invested over the last two years alone.” Source
