Trump threatens Iran with consequences 'few have ever suffered before'

Trump threatens Iran with consequences 'few have ever suffered before'

Earlier, Iran's president warned Mr Trump against provoking his country, while indicating peace between the two nations might still be possible.

He also said that Iran should "be cautious".

In May, the USA left a deal which curbed Iran's nuclear activities in return for the lifting of worldwide sanctions.

"The bitter irony of the economic situation in Iran is that the regime uses its time to line its own pockets while its people cry out for jobs, reform and opportunity", Pompeo said.

In an article for the New York Review of Books on Friday, NIAC president Trita Parsi echoed his colleague's assessment of Pompeo's planned speech, calling it "part of a deliberate policy of escalating tensions with Iran, targeting its economy, and supporting Iranian opposition groups-all for the objective of pressuring and destabilizing Iran".

"The United States has basic and fundamental problem with the (Islamic) establishment", Khamenei was quoted as saying. He spoke on condition of anonymity.

"To Iranian President Rouhani: NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE", Trump tweeted at Rouhani.

Trump's administration has launched a campaign to topple Iran's leaders, according to a new report from Reuters.

Iran is promoting domestic production of goods and has banned the import of some goods.

Iran is the subject of four of the top five items on the website's "Countering Violent Extremism" section.

On Sunday in California, Pompeo was strongly critical of Iran, calling its religious leaders "hypocritical holy men" who amassed vast sums of wealth while allowing their people to suffer.

In social media posts and speeches, Pompeo himself also appeals directly to Iranians, the Iranian diaspora and a global audience.

There have been a series of anti-government protests in Iran in recent months.

"To our Iranian American and Iranian friends", Pompeo said, "tonight I tell you that the Trump administration dreams the same dreams for the people of Iran as you do, and through our labors and God's providence, that day will come true".

Some of the information the administration has disseminated is incomplete or distorted, the current and former officials said.

The already tense relations between Washington and Tehran have been strained further by the US State Department's campaign to subvert the Iranian government through propaganda.

The 2015 agreement was in response to fears that Iran was developing a nuclear bomb.

While opponents accuse the Iran-backed Iraqi militias of human rights abuses against civilians, which the groups deny, the militias fought Islamic State extremists and helped keep them from overrunning Iraq in 2014 after Iraq's army collapsed. "It made them wolves in sheep's clothing", he said.

The commander of Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guards has told Rouhani that he supports closing the strait if necessary, in response to the US oil sanctions, which are due to kick in at the start of November.

"The United States under President Trump will not stay silent", he said in an address aimed at members of southern California's 250,000-strong Iranian-American community.

He called the religious leaders of Iran "hypocritical holy men" who amassed vast sums of wealth while allowing their people to suffer, part of a highly critical broadside issued as the republic approached the 40th anniversary of its Islamic revolution and the USA prepared to reimpose the economic sanctions.

"We are asking every nation, every nation who is sick and exhausted of the Islamic Republic's destructive behavior to join our pressure campaign".
