Flynn: US Will 'No Longer Tolerate Iran's Provocations'

Donald Trump's national security adviser, Michael Flynn, has issued a statement through the White House saying in part:
The Islamic Republic of Iran is the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism and engages in and supports violent activities that destabilize the Middle East. This behavior seems continuous despite the very favorable deal given to Iran by the Obama Administration. These sanctions target these behaviors.
Iran’s senior leadership continues to threaten the United States and our allies. Since the Obama Administration agreed to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action with Iran in 2015, Iran’s belligerent and lawless behavior has only increased...
The international community has been too tolerant of Iran’s bad behavior. The ritual of convening a United Nations Security Council in an emergency meeting and issuing a strong statement is not enough.  The Trump Administration will no longer tolerate Iran’s provocations that threaten our interests.
The days of turning a blind eye to Iran’s hostile and belligerent actions toward the United States and the world community are over.
Do libertarian Trump fanboys really think these are America First, bring the troops home, comments?

  1. What does it say about a nation when it covets a foreign country's natural resources to the point that it would incessantly agitate for war, and foment hatred of said country for over 63 years to the point that mention of the country's name induces madness in the polity?
