Iran threatens of ’crushing response’ if US extends arms embargo

Guys Iran is a major ally of China a nation which we have been more or less playing chicken with for the last few months. An Iranian attack on one of our ships and a coresponding retaliation from us could be the touch off that starts a serious global conflict. I know the world war three meme is rather dead at this point but seriously we are actually dancing on a razors edge here.

Yeah Rouhani will provide a "crushing" response, by probably having a fast water craft get EVEN CLOSER to the American fleet constantly assembled right offshore. Or maybe they'll fly a drone and take pictures of some gay sailors to use for blackmail or something.

‘Washington has claimed it is still a "participant state" in the JCPOA.’ Seriously? How do people actually stomach this shit? I challenge anyone in Washington to identify within the JCPOA which states that a signatory which reneges and withdraws from the agreement gets to be a “participant state”. Show me. If it wasn’t so disgraceful it would be funny.
