Bolton speaks at the United Against Nuclear Iran’s annual summit meeting
National security adviser John Bolton delivered a no-holds-barred warning to Iran to a key summit in New York on Tuesday, saying the regime in a fiery speech that “we are watching, and we will come to you” and that it “hell to pay” if it continues on its current course.
Bolton’s saber-rattling comments came hours after President Trump, in his own dramatic address to the U. N. General Assembly called for “all Nations to isolate Iran’s regime, as long as his aggression goes.”
Tensions have dramatically escalated in recent weeks between Iran and the United States, as well as in their regional allies. The Iranian Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has claimed that an attack on Saturday in the Iranian military parade, in which dozens of Iranian military dead, carried out by trained militants, Israel and the Gulf States and supported by the USA
“If you pay be the cross, for us, our allies, or our partners … Yes, it is, in fact, hell.”

American officials have denied that played a role.
On Tuesday, a threatening video shows a simulated Iranian attack with ballistic missiles on Israel and Saudi Arabia, the Twitter account of the semi-official state Fars News Agency was published, before it was quickly deleted.
And a top military official in Iran has warned the US and Israel on Monday that it tires a “crushing” response to the parade suit.

In his speech before the United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) annual summit, Bolton took aim at the threatening rhetoric used by Khomeini and other top Iranian politicians.
“After the mullahs in Tehran, we are the Great Satan, ‘the Lord of the underworld, the master of the raging inferno are said,” of Bolton. “So, I would imagine she would take me seriously, if I assure you now: If you cross us, our allies or our partners; when you harm our citizens; if you continue to lie, cheat and deceive, Yes, it will be in fact hell.” Applause broke out in the room.
He continued: “The ayatollahs have to make a choice. We laid a path towards a bright and prosperous future for all of Iran, one that is worthy of the Iranian people, which has long been under the regime have suffered the tyrannical rule.”
Iran, Bolton said, “brazenly supports the criminal Assad regime in Syria” and was “complicit in Assad’s chemical weapons attack on his own people.” He also called Iran the world’s “worst kidnappers of US citizens.”

Bolton also dismissed the now-defunct Obama-era nuclear deal with Iran unambiguously as “the worst diplomatic debacle in American history.”
Last month, the Trump administration made major sanctions against Iran, had been exposed to Ex-President Barack Obama’s 2015 nuclear deal threatens to unravel, the Islamic country’s already troubled economy. Bolton said Tuesday that the sanctions have already had a “crippling” effect on the Iranian economy, and threatening to send the housing market into a recession.
Thousands protested across Iran in the Wake of the decision, the rising unemployment and poverty prompted to tire the protesters torch police vehicles and burning. At least one person was shot and killed in the protests, with some shouting, “the Mullahs will be lost!” and “death to the dictator!” Fars news agency reported at the time.

More strong U.S. sanctions against Iran’s banking and energy sectors are scheduled to go into effect in the first week in November, including restrictions on Iran’s oil industry, cut off could be a major source of hard currency. The sanctions already target Iran’s trade with automobiles, gold and other important metals.
“We expect to reduce that buyers of Iranian oil, their imports to zero, 4. November, or with the threat of sanctions,” Bolton said. “After the 5. In November, President Trump addiitonal sanctions will follow” on the ones already added before the Iranian nuclear deal, Bolton, as he vowed a “maximum pressure” campaign against those who defy the sanctions.
The nuclear deal, Trump has been ridiculed since his presidential campaign as “a terrible, one-sided arrangement” was announced by the Obama administration as a breakthrough in preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear bomb.
But it contained numerous provisions-including the “weasel words” Bolton said on Tuesday — White house officials are not sufficient, such as limited inspection mechanisms to ensure Iran’s compliance with the offer, as well as sunset provisions that would lift various restrictions on the Iranian nuclear program in less than 10 years.

Trump charged Tuesday that Iran is funding deal from the use of nuclear energy to their people, and the “Fund for the Chaos and carnage in Yemen and in Syria” and said Iran has increased its military budget by more than 40 percent since the deal was reached.
“We cannot allow the world’s leading sponsor of terrorism, said to have the planet’s most dangerous weapons,” Trump. “Only it can’t do that.”
The Iran nuclear deal, Bolton, said on Tuesday, “did nothing to address destabilizing the regime activities or its ballistic missile development and proliferation. Worst of all, the deal failed in its basic objective: long-term Iran deny all the way to a nuclear bomb.
“The United States is not added naively,” Bolton. “We will not be hoodwinked, deceived, or intimidated. The days of impunity for Tehran and its precursor in the course. The murderous regime and its supporters, will not have significant consequences if you change your behavior. Let my message today is clear: We are watching, and we will come to you.”
Secretary of state Mike Pompeo, speaking at the UANI summit earlier on Tuesday, and criticized other countries for “enable” Iranian sponsored terrorism through cooperation with Iran to circumvent US sanctions.
“Just a few months ago, authorities in Europe, several Iranian agents of the … as part of a conspiracy is arrested, to said plants a bomb at a political rally in France,” Pompeo, before France, praised for the inclusion of economic retaliation action against Iran.
“Unfortunately, just last night, I was disturbed, and to listen to, although deeply disappointed, the rest of the parties in the [nuclear] deal, they announce a special payment to circumvent the system, U.S. sanctions,” said Pompeo. “This is one of the most counter-productive possible measures for the regional and global peace and security”.
