Time US taught 'new' lessons: Iran Armed Forces

Iran's statements mirror those of the USA, with President Donald Trump having recently accused the Islamic Republic of supporting terrorism. According to reports, the U.S. president plans to declare that the nuclear deal is not in the national interest of the United States and kick the issue to a reluctant Congress.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Wednesday any party that walks away from the multilateral 2015 nuclear agreement would be damaging its own reputation, adding the U.S.is angry with the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) because it has "humiliated" Daesh.

The measures by US President Donald Trump will fuel the disarray within the country, Rouhani said, adding that if Washington decides to withdraw from the nuclear deal, it will become more apparent to the (US) people that it is a big loss for them.

Iranian officials vowed last week to strike US forces and bases in the region if the Trump administration moves forward with extending a terror designation to the IRGC. "It's time America be taught new lessons".

The Iranian foreign minister warned that in case of such a move, the United States would become more isolated and despicable among the Iranian people. He must decide by Sunday whether to recertify the agreement, but is widely expected to declare Iran non-compliant with it, which would require Congress to make a decision on re-imposing sanctions.

Trump wanted tenfold increase in nuclear weapons, says network
As a businessman and candidate, Trump frequently threatened to sue news organizations over unflattering coverage. We've all grown quite accustomed to Trump's posturing, but that doesn't make his antics any easier to defend.


Iran's moderate president Hasan Rouhani won re-election less than five months ago after a campaign in which he called for better ties with the outside world and reform at home, openly criticizing the influence of the IRGC which he accused of backing his hardline opponent.

"So by taking a stance against the Revolutionary Guards and designating it a terrorist group, the Americans would be joining the terrorists' camp", Nobakht said. "All options are on the table", he said.

"The Americans are too small to be able to harm the Revolutionary Guards", Ali Akbar Velayati, the top adviser to Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei was quoted as saying by ISNA.

In July 2017, the United Stated imposed new sanctions against the country's ballistic missile program. In their most recent report on the designation, the US Department of State said the IRGC's Quds force was used to support terrorism throughout the Middle East.

Iran's rial has dropped against the USA dollar in recent days in a sign of concern about Trump's policy. Zarif, the Iranian foreign minister, said Iran purposefully excluded military capabilities from the pact, as "it is not intended as leverage or a bargaining chip in future negotiations".
