Iran Talks Tough Against US, Says Any Move Against It Would Face ‘Crushing’ Response

Iran

The Iranian government puffed up its chest on Tuesday and stated that any attack on the country by the United States would face a “crushing” response, as reports hit stating that President Donald Trump has asked for options for a strike against Iran’s main nuclear site last week, but ultimately decided against taking action.

“Any action against the Iranian nation would certainly face a crushing response,” spokesman Ali Rabiei said in remarks that were streamed on one of the country’s official websites.

Citing a U.S. official, Reuters reported on Monday that Trump, with two months left in office, conferred with top advisers about the possibility of attacking the Natanz uranium enrichment plant, but was dissuaded by them from that option.

One of the advisers named in the report, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, is on Wednesday due to visit Israel, which has long hinted at possible military action against its arch-enemy Iran.

“If I were the Iranians, I would not feel at ease” after the report, Israeli Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz said, adding that he was not aware of the Oval Office deliberations last Thursday.

“It is very important that the Iranians know that if, indeed, they suddenly dash toward high levels of enrichment, in the direction of nuclear weaponry, they are liable to encounter the military might of the United States – and also, perhaps, of other countries,” Steinitz said during a conversation with Israel’s Army Radio.

Iran continues to claim that the nuclear program exists to help them meet peaceful needs. Rabiei has accused the nation of Israel of engaging in “psychological warfare” against the country.

“I personally don’t foresee that it’s probable that they (the United States) would want to cause insecurity in the world and the region,” he said.

Peaceful needs? Yeah, I’m not buying it. Most people probably don’t. After all, these are the same people who take to the streets and shout, “death to America” on a regular basis.

They don’t exactly seem like friendly, peaceful kind of people.

Regardless, their threat is an empty one. They know full well we could crush them like an ant under the boot. Let’s hope, however, that we never have to engage in any sort of battle with Iran, as peace is preferable to war.

Tone-Deaf Portland Runs Tourism Ad After Riot Police Quit En Masse

If you’re looking for chaos, have we got the vacation spot for you!

For months on end, a never-ending series of protests-turned-riots have plagued the city of Portland, Oregon. Night after night the northwestern locale rages, as protesters march in the street, commit arson, clash with cops, and generally relish in their new role as liberal nuisances to the citizens of the city. Things have gotten so bad, in fact, that a large contingent of the city’s riot police coordinated a mass resignation from that portion of the force. That makes the timing of the city’s latest tourism push all the more asinine. Portland ran a pricy full-page Sunday ad in the New York Times promoting tourism after the Portland police riot squad quit Thursday. “Some of what you’ve heard about Portland is true. Some is not. What matters most is that we’re true to ourselves,” Travel Portland wrote in the ad that could have cost up to $250,000. “You’ve heard a lot about us lately. It’s been a while since you heard from us,” it continues. “After a year of encouraging visitors and locals to support small businesses here and from a distance, it’s time to issue an invitation to come back to Portland,” the ad states. “Two sides to the same coin that keeps landing right on its edge. Anything can happen. We like it this way.” The ad also says “new ideas are welcome” in the city, a place where “you can be yourself.” “This is the kind of place where new ideas are welcome — whether they’re creative, cutting-edge or curious at first glance. You can speak up here. You can be yourself here,” it continues. Of course, the taxpayer money used to procure this ad could have been spent on any number of the projects that would have helped secure the city from these anarchistic rabble-rousers.

Canada Bucks International Trend, Won’t Open Border as Pandemic Fades

Airline industry officials are not happy.

In America and around the world, there is much optimism.  The year-plus reign of the COVID scourge is coming to an end as vaccination and natural antibody rates climb ever higher, and businesses from coast to coast begin to ramp up their capacities. But there are still those out there who are unwilling to admit this very palpable and tangible truth, and who are throttling economic recovery in their reticence. Our northern neighbors just so happen to fit that description. Canada said on Monday it would start cautiously lifting border restrictions for fully vaccinated citizens on July 5 but made clear it would be months before U.S. and other foreign travelers could enter the country. From 11:59 p.m. EDT on July 5 (0359 GMT on July 6), those who have received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine will no longer have to spend time in quarantine. The move applies to Canadians and permanent residents. “This is the first phase of our precautionary approach … at this time we are not opening up our borders any further,” said Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Dominic LeBlanc. Ottawa first announced the plan on June 9. LeBlanc told reporters that Ottawa was talking to its domestic and international partners “with the goal of allowing fully vaccinated travelers to enter Canada for non-essential reasons in the months to come.” Canada’s unwillingness to capitulate to the reality of the pandemic’s end has adversely affected the airline industry, and has drawn criticism from American lawmakers who believe that more could be done by our allies to the north in the realm of reopening.
