The Iranian regime is becoming more and more belligerent as time goes on. Many presidents and administration officials over the past few decades have called for patience, saying that the regime would become more moderate, especially if concessions were granted. However, the time has finally come, at last, for the world to realise that the regime is completely incapable of becoming more moderate. In fact, its mere existence depends on the export of terror and fundamentalism.
The situation in Iran is evolving rapidly. Just a few short years ago, it would have been almost unheard of for ordinary people in the street to be heard chanting “death to Rouhani” or “death to the Supreme Leader”. But now it is something that is heard frequently. The people are no longer afraid to make their voice heard.
Earlier this week, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that the country was going to increase its enriched uranium stockpile to the level it wishes, disregarding the limits that it is obliged to adhere to according to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), or 2015 Iran nuclear deal as it is more commonly referred to.
U.S. President Donald Trump responded to this in a message on Twitter, saying that Iran should watch what it threatens. He said: “ (…) Be careful with the threats, Iran. They can come back to bite you like nobody has been bitten before!”
