It's getting serious: Trump threatens Iran in ALL CAPS

War with Iran is the mother of all wars, Rouhani tells Trump

"We don't know the right moment", he said.

"We weren't afraid to tackle the regime at its highest level", he said, confirming that Washington wants all countries to reduce their imports of Iranian oil "as close to zero as possible" by November 4, or face American sanctions. "We have presented a very positive vision for the future of US-Iranian relations ... it's a choice that the regime needs to make", the official added.

The tweet was "really about war", CNN's John Avlon said, adding that there's a contradiction in Trump getting cozy with Russian Federation, which supports Iran in Syria.

Wazne, the director of American Strategic Studies institute in Beirut, warned that "it needs just one mistake to have a major regional war".

Foreign Ministry spokesman Christofer Burger told reporters in Berlin on Monday: "We support dialogue and talks, and we call on all sides to exercise restraint and rhetorical disarmament".

President Hassan Rouhani said during the parade that Iran does not intend any aggression against its neighbours but will continue to produce all the weapons it needs for its defence.

Trump earlier this year pulled the USA out of the global deal meant to prevent Tehran from developing a nuclear weapon and ordered increased American sanctions, as well as threatening penalties for companies from other countries that continue to do business with Iran.

Leilaz told The Associated Press he was not "worried about the remarks and tweets", and that "neither Iran, nor any other country is interested in escalating tensions in the region".

"According to Leilaz, Trump's attitude so far has been different from his words" and it's "unlikely such a tweet will have any impact inside Iran".

Putin attacks Trump's opponents over summit
Shortly after arriving at the Presidential Palace in Finland's capital, Trump said he believed Russian Federation and the U.S. Central Command, told reporters he's taking a "steady-as-she-goes" approach in Syria in the absence of new instructions.

The high-stakes verbal sparring is reminiscent of the exchanges Trump had past year with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un before the two leaders met in a historic summit last month.

"But the step from there to think that the Trump administration - that now is undermining democracy in the United States - is the answer to Iran's lack of democracy, is a major leap of faith that I don't think most people would take".

The offensive is meant to work in concert with severe economic sanctions that Washington plans to reimpose in the coming months, including on Tehran's oil exports, its principal revenue generator.

Tehran denounced Pompeo's speech as an interference in Tehran's affairs, the semi-official Tasnim news agency reported.

He singled out "the billionaire general", Interior Minister Sadegh Mahsouli; Grand Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi, the "Sultan of Sugar"; and Sadeq Ardeshir Larijani, the head of Iran's judiciary, whom he said had embezzled $300 million in public money.

But he did not rule out peace between the two countries, which have been at odds since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

The recent confrontation has come as a result of Trump's decision to withdraw America from an worldwide deal over Iran's nuclear programme. Trump's tweet suggested he has little patience with the trading of hostile messages with Iran, using exceptionally strong language and writing an all-capitalized tweet.

The top USA diplomat said the United Sates is not afraid to pressure the Iranian government at its highest level as he urged all US allies to join in financially suppressing the government.

Rouhani immediately dismissed those U.S. threats and on Sunday said: "You can not provoke the Iranian people against their own security and interests".
