As Twitchy reported, President Trump had some harsh words Sunday night for Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, who warned Trump that “war with Iran is the mother of all wars.”
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!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 23, 2018
Iran’s foreign minister, Javad Zarif, responded to Trump’s tweet with his own all-caps “BE CAUTIOUS” warning.
COLOR US UNIMPRESSED: The world heard even harsher bluster a few months ago. And Iranians have heard them —albeit more civilized ones—for 40 yrs. We’ve been around for millennia & seen fall of empires, incl our own, which lasted more than the life of some countries. BE CAUTIOUS!
— Javad Zarif (@JZarif) July 23, 2018
Color Seth Frantzman of the Jerusalem Post unimpressed with Zarif.
Yeah but you’re not a representative of that civilization that has been around for millennia, you’re a modern product of a US prep school and US University who brags about the IRGC, a recent organization, tweeting in English in ALL CAPS, a temporary embarrassment to rich history

Zarif would do well to note that the downfall of the current Iranian regime might not be around for much longer, and not due to external forces. Iranians have had enough and are taking to the streets and passing around hashtags like #IslamicRegimeMustGo.

It’s time for the Iranian people to take control of their destiny. All what your backward regime has brought them is misery and isolation. They deserve better.

Still playing on nationalistic ideas to get support of Iranian people. This doesn’t work anymore. Iranian people consider you a black spot in the history of Iran. You’re fooling yourself. Mini Akhound

You have been around for 40 years and tried to undermine our ancient civilization, squandered our capital in terrorism, rulled by tyranny and illustrated a hostile and intolerant face of Iranian nation to the world. Soon your criminal band will face trials.#IslamicRegimeMustGo

Your words are very funny
Like Jack said
The people of Iran, and especially you, like you, have to see a great revolution and see you in the near future
This is the revolution of the Iranian people
Which will happen soon, whether you want it or not#IslamicRegimeMustGo
— MY IRAN (@Iranazad2577) July 23, 2018
The end is near. BE CAUTIOUS!

Americans were pretty enamored of Zarif’s tweet, though:
65%+ of rational thinking Americans are unimpressed with this blusterous President. Besides, most Americans are unaware Iran was at one time the great Empire of Persia which influenced and created civilization long before White Europeans landed on America's shores.

America stands with you Javad 💓
