"Iran said new sanctions imposed by U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday break the terms of its nuclear deal with the United States and other world powers, and vowed an 'appropriate and proportional' response. Trump, who during his election campaign called the nuclear agreement — negotiated under his predecessor Barack Obama — 'the worst deal ever,' signed the new sanctions into law along with measures against Russia and North Korea."

"Kim Jong Un’s regime has, in recent months, test-fired a handful of missiles harmlessly into the ocean. Only two months ago, Donald Trump ordered the firing of 59 missiles at military bases situated on the territory of a sovereign nation with which the US is not at war (Syria). The US government is worried that the North may be close to developing the launch capability to hit the US with one of its 13-30 atomic fission weapons boasting explosive yields of up to the equivalent of 30 thousand tons of TNT The US, by the way, possesses nearly 7,000 nuclear weapons with yields of up 1.4 million tons, and 450 Minuteman 3 ICBMs to carry them. It’s also the only nation on Earth that’s ever used atomic or nuclear weapons in war. North Korea invaded South Korea in 1950 and hasn’t invaded another country since. How many countries has the US invaded since then?" (07/06/17)
