Iranian president Hassan Rouhani said on Wednesday: “We will bring the US to its knees in this battle of wills.” The Iranian government is continuing to warn of harsh retaliation against the United States after the Trump administration pulled out of the 2015 nuclear agreement.
According to PressTV, the threat comes as Washington continues to attempt to bully its allies into halting imports of Iranian oil after Donald Trump unilaterally quit the cornerstone international nuclear agreement instituted by his predecessor, Barack Obama. Iran has previously said there would be consequences should the US decide to withdraw from the agreement.
The United States, meanwhile, has continued to push Iran. After withdrawing from the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), in May the US vowed to reinforce economic pressure and sanctions against Tehran, reported RT. While the European capitals have so far refused to leave the cornerstone security accord, on Tuesday the State Department threatened private companies with sanctions unless they completely cut Iranian crude oil imports by November.
Rouhani also seeks to unify all Iranians. “We will take problems. We will take pressure. But we will not sacrifice our independence,” Rouhani vowed. “Even in the worst case, I promise that the basic needs of Iranians will be provided,” the Jerusalem Post quoted Rouhani saying live on national television. Rouhani additionally noted that his administration will continue to defend Iran’s interests and focus on strengthening the economy. “We have enough foreign currency to inject into the market.”
The seventh president of Iran also ruled out any possibility that Washington could succeed in isolating his country. But the United States has been left isolated, as even its close allies, including France, the UK, and Germany, are working against the county’s government to prevent the nuclear agreement from crumbling. Even the State Department had to acknowledge that cutting off Iranian oil imports completely is a “challenge” that no country “wants to do voluntarily.”
Iran has also opened a uranium feedstock plant in the absence of the nuclear agreement. The nuclear plant that remained closed for nine years has now reopened Iran’s atomic energy agency (AEOI) said on Wednesday. Tehran prepares to increase uranium enrichment capacity if a nuclear deal with world powers falls apart, reported Reuters. Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei ordered the AEOI to start the necessary preparations to upgrade the country’s enrichment capacity in case the European efforts at a world deal fail.
The UF6 factory is part of the Isfahan uranium conversion facility, according to AEOI’s statement on its website. The AEOI said on Wednesday that in response to Khamenei’s order and Trump’s renunciation of the deal, a plant for the production of UF6, the feedstock for centrifuge machines that enrich uranium, had been relaunched and a barrel of yellow cake has been delivered there.
this article is absolutely wrong. the author has no idea what theyre talking about, and spreading nonsense.
And just why should anyone pay any attention whatsoever to your assertion since you have provided no corroboration?
It would warm my heart to see a giant smoldering hole where Tehran and all it’s islamic scum used to be.
American servicemen have already been subdued and humiliated by the Iranians in the past and it will happen again: this historical picture showing US Navy Seals surrendering cowardly without putting a fight in the Persian Gulf (01/12/2016) is the best example dealing with the “levels of readiness” of American forces in that part of the world.
Get your facts straight. Those were regular sailors, not SEALS. That was also under the “lead from behind” administration, not the current admin.
kenw is exactly right. This is total propaganda intended to foment hatred toward the Islamic countries just as Albert Pike predicted 150 yrs ago. In 2003, prior to the invasion (blood sacrifice) of Iraq, every week there was an article stating Iran was just WEEKS away from having a Nuclear Weapon. It was ALL bunk then and remains so now, but they have a new generation to scare don’t you know!!!
The islamic savages need no help with reasons for us to hate them. They do a fine job themselves with their religion of pieces and pedophilia.
Menzo, those sandapes WILL get themselves nuked as long as they keep screwing around.
This just signals that the Iranian regime is on its way out
The smart Iranian public has had enough of thier stupidity
Jakartaman, there’s been some riots in Tehran lately due to their economic situation. I also think the Iranian people are about to blow up.
You know, I have had way more than enough from these vile, filthy stinking Sand-Apes. if they want to push the button, well do it, donkey-rapists and we all die, so what good, just get it over with. I am so sick of all the talk, just do it, let it rip, whatever really.
Iran and Khamenei are on a path that will ultimately bite them in the keister. We do not have a Muslium in the Whitehouse anymore who made America weak and they should take note of who they are messing with. If anyone thinks that Iran would keep it’s end of any deal they are just plain stupid. Iran is behind the attacks on Israel and they are determined to get a nuke to send to Israel. So make no mistake pulling out would not make much of a difference. The time is coming when Iran will be dealt with period!
The title is a little misleading/sensationalist.
‘We Will Bring The US To Its KNEES’
Is this before Israel turns you to an ash tray????
Good luck with that Spanky.
No, the Iranian people are just tired of the neocons interfering with their nation and trying to steal and control their oil and natural gas just like they did to Iraq, Libya and now using ISIS against Syria for the same purpose.
Wow, that’s a lot of ignorance expressed in one sentence. Might be some kind of record.
No, what he says is right, even though Iran is not a democracy (which I’m starting to believe the USA isn’t too), each country has the right to choose its path without any interference.
USA is a constitutional Republic, not a democracy.
Maybe you should learn the truth from those that escaped the “Revolution” before speaking from ignorance. The people of Iran are not free to choose, or else the current Muslim government would not exist.
Aljamo, uh, it’s the MULLAHS who are tired of it. What did they expect after all the crimes they’ve committed against their own people and other countries? The mullahs won’t last too much longer.
I am seldom frightened by words. If you Iranian inbred half wits have something, let’s see it!
The Shah of Iran Exposes The Illuminati
Galen Winsor: The Nuclear Scare Scam
Assuming that Iran is what we hear in the msm, and the danger is real —
Why would a sovereign country cede it’s greatest deterrent and an energy concern.
We were told that crude has peaked, or is being phased out.
What do you offer in exchange for it’s primal needs?
There simply needs to be an uprising within there own boundaries. There may be bloodshed, but it would rid them of the terrorist regime. Iran citizens for the most part are somewhat westernized and love modernization. They must be the ones to pull this off. It is past time for the populations in these 3rd world hellholes to rise up to the challenge and defeat the terrorists without fear of dying! Just my thoughts.
I just find the Islamic terrorism connection poses questions. Indonesia is the most heavily populated Islamic country with approximately 260 million inhabitants, almost all Islamic. They are a net importer of approximately 200K / bbls / day crude oil. I rarely, very rarely, can’t remember when they were associated with terrorism. Conversely the nations on top of or near (pipeline capable transport hub) oil resources seem to have terrorist implications.
Just an observation.
This story is bunk. First of all, Iran is out out money. Secondly, there are still entities monitoring the Iranians, Third, the US and Russia will work out their differences regardless of those who don’t want that, and once we have better relations with Russia they will tell their “friends” the Iranians their relationship will be redefined if they become troublemakers. The only ones making a big issue about Iran’s “nuclear weapons program” is Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the deep state. H. L. Menchen said “The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.”
Why would anyone back the US and associated warmongers? Who benefits from an attack on Iran, certainly not the American people. The authoritarian new world order police and surveillance state benefits, the fossil fuel polluting companies benefit, the Rothschilds fiat bankers ongoing depreciation of the US dollar benefit, that same entity that controls all press and television propaganda benefit to the point that the truth of US wars is not given to the population of the nation that leads the death and destruction worldwide as if it is none of our business. They count on the truth being shut out from Americans with now legal propaganda. If you are not against this treachery and treason you have been brainwashed.
This is ZOG agitprop bullshit that twists words and meanings to manufacture consent for more war.
They haven’t started the reactor as of now. And besides, that reactor did not enrich uranium to weapons grade. It was used for enrichment for medical devices, etc.
This website is turning into CNN, MSNBC and CBS all rolled into one with fake news click bait for the view count.
To our KNEES?
And with what since your $$$ value is about worthless?
