Iran’s Khamenei Responds To Trump’s Threat: You Can’t Do Anything

After recent attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Iraq by pro-Iranian activists, President Donald Trump spoke out claiming he would hold those responsible accountable.

“Iran will be held fully responsible for lives lost, or damage incurred, at any of our facilities,” tweeted Trump shortly after the violence started. “They will pay a very BIG PRICE! This is not a Warning, it is a Threat. Happy New Year!”

However, Trump’s words did not silence Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Khamenei responded to Trump’s threat by insulting both Trump’s authority and mental capacity.

“That guy [Trump] has tweeted that we see Iran responsible for the events in Baghdad & we will respond to Iran,” Khamenei wrote in his tweet. Then he continued, “1st: You can’t do anything. 2nd: If you were logical —which you’re not— you’d see that your crimes in Iraq, Afghanistan… have made nations hate you.”

After insulting the President and his threat, Khamenei made a threat of his own.

“If the Islamic Republic decides to challenge & fight, it will do so unequivocally,” Khamenei warned. “We’re not after wars, but we strongly defend the Iranian nation’s interests, dignity, & glory. If anyone threatens that, we will unhesitatingly confront & strike them.”

When President Trump was later asked about the possibility of war, Trump was skeptical. “I don’t see that happening,” Trump said according to Israel Times. “I like peace.”

The Israel Times is reporting that America has “already flown a rapid response team of Marines into Baghdad to reinforce its embassy after the attack, which left smoke and flames rising from the compound’s entrance and further heightened tension between Tehran and Washington.”

According to Israel Times, military officials deny any plans to end the mission. No U.S. personnel are reported injured.
