Trump threatens Iran with 'obliteration' if it attacks 'anything American'

Washington, Jun 25 (UNI) US President Donald Trump on Tuesday warned Iran of meeting with great and overwhelming force if it attacks on 'anything American'.
"Iran’s very ignorant and insulting statement, put out today, only shows that they do not understand reality," the President said in a tweet.
"Any attack by Iran on anything American will be met with great and overwhelming force. In some areas, overwhelming will mean obliteration."
The President said that Iran's leadership doesn’t understand the words 'nice' or 'compassion' they never have.
"Sadly, the thing they do understand is Strength and Power, and the USA is by far the most powerful Military Force in the world, with 1.5 Trillion Dollars invested over the last two years alone.." the tweet read.
Tensions escalated between the two countries when Iran shot down a US naval surveillance drone near the Strait of Hormuz. The attack had come amid a simmering standoff between the US and Iran in the Persian Gulf region following assaults on Japanese and Norwegian tankers near the Strait of Hormuz.
The Trump administration blamed Iran for the 'oil tanker attacks' but Iran denied any involvement and called the accusation "unfair" and "a lie."
Last week also President Trump said he does not want war but warned Iran that it would face "obliteration" if conflict breaks out.
Speaking to an American news Channel on Friday, Mr Trump said that US was open to talks but would not allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons. He also expanded on his last-minute decision to call off strikes planned in response to the shooting down of a US unmanned drone this week, saying he had been told 150 Iranians would be killed.
