You knew this was coming. Anyone who thought the Iranians were just going to roll over and capitulate to Trump's ultimatum does not understand the culture or the social pressures of the Middle East.
Now Ayatollah Khomeini has fired back in a statement saying the Iranian nation will respond to Trump's comments on February 10th. Nobody knows what that means, but I'd expect it means another missile test designed to send a big "SCREW YOU" in America's direction.
While Trump has worked had to avoid a conflict with Russia he seems determined to start a new conflict with Iran and ruffle feathers with China and Mexico.
Don't get me wrong; I've got no issue with our President ruffling feathers. There's far too much consideration given to public sentiment and media response. But I do worry when our Presidents words could expand our war footing and put American lives at risk.
It's another great show, Don't forget to like and share.
