To Iranian President Rouhani: NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS!
This isn't the sort of international policy that one expects from any high official in a Western Democratic Republic... it's pretty much the sort of screed that an angry twelve year old on XBOX Live would use after losing a video game. Diplomacy, it's not.
Oddly enough, my first reaction to this tweet was 'I really need to gas up the car before the price of petroleum skyrockets.' It hasn't gone up much, perhaps because nobody really takes Trump seriously these days. I'm glad I filled up the tank at 2AM, though, because things could get volatile.
The whole sorry performance hints at desperation, perhaps because the chants of the Lafayette Park protestors were audible. I certainly wouldn't expect Trump to be averse to using a 'wag the dog' tactic. If he does decide to carry out an attack on Iran, maybe he can send the seventy thousand people who liked his tweet as a vanguard.
