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!

It will be interesting to see if Iran dials down its anti-American rhetoric. Could it be that, love the president or hate him, his brash words (presumably backed by action, if need be) are exactly what is needed to protect the American people from nuclear war?
