After being hit with new sanctions, Iran is trying to talk tough to the United States, and is threatening to restart its nuclear program.
Apparently these guys didn’t learn from watching North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un being forced to back down after President Trump and his administration refused to allow the bully to gain ground with his hollow threats.
Iran, like all the other bullies on the world stage, needs to learn that America has a new leader, and is not going to be pushed around by unhinged lunatics and their threats of violence.
We do not have a weak, spineless coward like Obama at the helm anymore; we have a strong leader who is making sure that America regains its former glory and gets the respect we deserve.

Iran’s president has warned that it could restart its nuclear programme “within hours” if the United States imposes any more new sanctions.
Hassan Rouhani also said the programme would be more advanced than in 2015, when Iran curbed its nuclear activities as part of a deal with world powers.
Iran says unilateral US sanctions targeting its ballistic missile programme breach the agreement.
But the US says Iran’s missile tests have violated a UN resolution.
The resolution endorsed the nuclear deal and called upon Iran not to “undertake any activity related to ballistic missiles designed to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons, including launches using such ballistic missile technology”.
Iran says the missiles it has tested are not designed to carry nuclear warheads and insists its nuclear programme is entirely peaceful.
US President Donald Trump has repeatedly threatened to pull out of the nuclear agreement, and after a missile test at the end of January his administration declared that the US would no longer turn “a blind eye to Iran’s hostile and belligerent actions”.
While acknowledging that the test was “not a direct violation” of the nuclear agreement, it imposed sanctions on 25 individuals and entities connected to its missile programme and the powerful Revolutionary Guards force.
Further sanctions targeting six Iranian companies were announced in late July following Iran’s launch of a rocket capable of putting a satellite into orbit.
