Trump's National Security Adviser To Iran: "We Will Come For You"

On September 25th, US National Security Adviser John Bolton warned Iran that the US is “watching, and we will come for you,” and there would be “hell to pay” if the Islamic Republic continues its current course. His speech took place hours after US President Donald Trump made his ridiculed speech at the UN General Assembly in New York.

Tensions have sharply worsened in recent weeks, due to US sanctions, constant US accusations of Iranian misconduct and the September 22nd terrorist attack on an Iranian Military Parade for which Iran blames the US, Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Israel.

Bolton spoke at the annual United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) summit, blasting the threatening rhetoric of Iranian officials.

“According to the mullahs in Tehran, we are ‘the Great Satan,’ lord of the underworld, master of the raging inferno,” Bolton said. “So, I might imagine they would take me seriously when I assure them today: If you cross us, our allies, or our partners; if you harm our citizens; if you continue to lie, cheat and deceive, yes, there will indeed be hell to pay.”

He continued: “The ayatollahs have a choice to make. We have laid out a path toward a bright and prosperous future for all of Iran, one that is worthy of the Iranian people, who have long suffered under the regime’s tyrannical rule.”

According to him, Iran “brazenly supports the criminal Assad regime in Syria” and was” complicit in Assad’s chemical weapons attacks on his own people.” He also called Iran the world’s “worst kidnapper of U.S. citizens.”

He also once more dismissed the Iran Nuclear Deal, which was signed under the Obama administration. He clearly said it was “the worst diplomatic debacle in American history.”

On the previous day, Bolton once more reiterated that US presence in Syria would remain until Iran withdraws its forces. “We’re not going to leave as long as Iranian troops are outside Iranian borders, and that includes Iranian proxies and militias,” White House national security adviser John Bolton said while in New York for the U.N. General Assembly.

There are currently 2,200 US troops in Syria, most of them deployed to fight ISIS. As reported by Defense News, While Bolton and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo have said Iran poses the bigger strategic threat, US military leaders have emphasized that Iran is not their focus.

On the same day, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis repeatedly confirmed Bolton’s claims and that there was no change in policy, and that the Pentagon was on the same page as the White House on what the role for US forces would be in Syria.

“As part of this overarching problem, we have to address Iran,” Mattis said. “Everywhere you go in the Middle East where there’s instability you will find Iran. So, in terms of getting to the end state of the Geneva process, Iran, too, has a role to play, which is to stop fomenting trouble. Right now our troops inside Syria are there for one purpose, and that’s under the U.N. authorization about defeating ISIS,” Mattis said.

The Trump administration and Israel have tried to convince Russia to assist in compelling Iran to leave Syria, however that has had no effect. Moscow, also announced it would give Bashar al-Assad’s government more modern S-300 missile defense systems, following the downing of the Russian IL-20 jet.

“We think introducing the S-300s to the Syrian government would be a significant escalation by the Russians and something that we hope, if these press reports are accurate, they would reconsider,” Bolton said.

Iran also recently signed a military cooperation agreement with Syria, which means that the Islamic Republic has no plans of leaving the country. According to Defense News, Iran’s presence in Syria has allowed for “pro-Assad armed groups” to enter the conflict, such as Hezbollah. The presence of Hezbollah and Iranian forces is viewed as a direct security threat by Israel.

Bolton, Mattis and Pompeo’s claims come as Iranian President Hassan Rouhani spoke at the UN General Assembly, condemning US international relations as authoritarian, while saying that the negotiating table is open for the US and that dialogue must be two-way. He also invited the US back into the Iran Nuclear Deal, which the remaining signatories have scrambled to uphold and protect Iran from the US sanctions.

Rouhani also said that despite the escalated tensions, Iran does not wish for war, not with the US nor with the Gulf States.

On September 19th, an annual Trump administration report concluded that Iran remained the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism. The State Department’s annual survey of global terrorism accused Iran of intensifying numerous conflicts and trying to undermine governments throughout the Middle East and beyond. Iran’s “terrorist affiliates and proxies,” the report said, “demonstrated a near-global terrorist reach.”

Most, if not all, of the US accusations towards Iran are substantiated by absolutely no evidence.

    ‘the Great Satan,’

    I recall a Shiite saying that the devil whispers lies into the ears of people encouraging them to do bad things which is a good analogy for how my country uses its influence to stir up trouble against Iran. This actually is not much different from Christian theology. Are there any Shiites here who can comment on this?
    In any case, Bolton is a troublemaker who has no interest in truth, all too common in my country. He is intoxicated on power and a feeling of self-righteousness. Pride comes before a fall.

    • peacelover

      Being a shiite I agree you r right, this theology is common between us in both religions.Devil as always been thirsty of human blood. Shiites love peace at most. In our religion it is believed that our twelfth Imam Mehdi a.s and Jesus Christ a.s will come together to save the world from these enemies of Peace rather murderers of Peace on this motherland planet Earth.

      • Tommy Jensen

        Thanks. Being a christian it is also my experience when I meet sincere muslims, that true Islam is very close to true christianity, why the devil is busy trying to poison and destroy both.
        In West this is done by filling up our christian churches with atheist, homoes and feminist priests and bishops.

        • peacelover

          And in Islamic population this is done by spreading wahabism, which in fact is the true face of Satan the devil.

  • There is only one problem in the world.
    USA consider themselves as the world hegemon, but they are not.
    US military is on pair with Russian and US economy is on pair with Chinese.
    But it doesn’t prevent US deep state to behave recklessly.
    Russia is more talking and stepping back
    then doing anything against it.
    China is at least not stepping back in economy wars, but their military is
    not on pair with US one so their possibilities are limited.
    If Russia will not hold firmly in Syria, Russia and
    China will lose everything.
    There is not room to retreat for Russia and China as
    they are already surrounded by NATO nukes and enemies
    from all directions and USA (or to be precise deep
    state Israel’s leadership ruling the USA) is more and
    more agressive.And by the way…. banning accounts is very bad
    behavior.

    • RichardD

      The mass murdering ziocon scum like Bolton and his ilk need to be removed from US politics and replaced with humane rational people who aren’t Jew lackeys. The US and our planet need to be dejudified to get rid of this parasitical disease that is humanities’s number one problem.

  • RichardD

    This Jew puppet was a signatory to the PNAC document that called for “a new Pearl Harbor” and is involved up to his eyeballs with the anti American traitors and criminals responsible for the 911 terror attacks and subsequent preplanned Jew wars for Israel that have ben a complete disaster for the US. He’s constantly shilling for the Jews against what Trump won the election on.

    Bolton & Co. can talk and threaten all they want. At some point in the future they will press the wrong power with nothing left to lose too far. What are they going to talk about then?

    “””TRUMP’S NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER TO IRAN: “WE WILL COME FOR YOU”””

    Ok Bolton, just try to do it, like all the hot air you blew at North Korea. Russian Air Force has a base in Iran, and if you persist with your hot air, there might be several more, fielding Mig31’s and Suk 35. Between the MiG 31 and Suk 35 your F22’s would be like crushed cakoroaches.

      Good answer

    • Ivan Freely

      Russian airbase in Iran? That was back in 2016. They’re no longer there.

        Russia made a request to use an air base in N. Iran.

    O god, make all of our enemies fight and destroy each other, and get us out of this victorious.

    O god, destroy US, EU, Shiites around the world, Russia, Israel, Arab nationalism, and every enemy of Islam, and grant victory to the Muslims in these days, where the scum and liars are prevailing, and the righteous ones are being fought and demonized by almost everyone on this planet.
    (Note: anything other than Sunni is not Muslim).

    O god, grant victory to the bearers of the black flags, just as we were promised.

    I am not a big fan of Iran, However these neo-cons that Trump put In place unelected appointed un-elected are a far bigger threat to the plant than Iran is having said that Iran has got to stop with making stupid public statements

    “Saudi Arabia—not Iran—is the biggest state sponsor of terrorism in the world today and Wahhabism remains the source of most radical Islamic extremism. For years Iran has borne the unenviable title of “world’s biggest state sponsor of terrorism.” However, out of the 61 groups that are designated as terrorist organizations by the U.S. State Department, the overwhelming majority are Wahhabi-inspired and Saudi-funded groups, with a focus on the West and Iran as their primary enemy. Only two are Shi’a—Hezbollah and Kataib Hezbollah, and only four have ever claimed to receive support from Iran. Nearly all of the Sunni militant groups listed receive significant support from either the Saudi government or Saudi citizens.”

        “The Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed Bin Salman, made a surprising confession, un unexpected admission, recently. He acknowledged his country’s evil role in the spread of religious extremism in the world.

        Currently in the United States where he began a visit on Saturday, Riyadh’s strongman said that the kingdom began spreading the germ of Wahhabism on Western orders …

        In addition to spreading Wahhabism, which is the basis of international terrorism, the Crown Prince also acknowledged that Saudi governments lost their way”

          Richard.
          Just wait until many hundreds of thousands of battle hardened fanatical ISIS and Al Qaeda fighters are driven out of Idlib and return to the USSA, Germany, France, the UK etc. I expect they will take over police stations military bases etc. release their members from prisons and proclaim the caliphate.
          What is going on now will seem like the calm before the storm.

          German women and children will be ISIS and Al Qaeda sex slaves and German men will go to ISIS and Al Qaeda mass graves

            It’s unlikely that they’l be taking over any police stations in the west. But the depravity that they’ve engaged in where they have taken over is being prosecuted in Germany and elsewhere:

            “A German court sentenced a member of a Western-backed Syrian armed opposition group on Monday to life imprisonment for “war crimes,” according to court documents.

            The convict, identified as Ibrahim A., was found guilty of “torture and killing persons protected under international humanitarian law” as well as “murder, extortionist kidnapping and the commission of war crimes under the International Criminal Code.”

            The 43-year-old commanded a 150-member armed group known as Ghoraba as-Sham which operated under the Free Syrian Army (FSA) umbrella group, according to court documents.”

            Richard you think jailing 1 out of 100k plus will make any difference?? He will run the show from prison.
            They run orgainzed crime in Germany now, along with the prison system, they are taking over the school system etc. and will soon by the majority in Germany as per Isreal’s Yinon plan. Usually you have intelligent comments but not this time.

          • RichardD

            They haven’t taken over any police stations yet, but they are being put in jail. If you have credible information that they’l soon be the majority, I’d like to see it. I haven’t seen anything remotely credible documenting that. Once the war is over in Syria, a lot of them are scheduled for deportation.
