War Would Be 'end' Of Iran --US President Donald Trump Frowns Amid Rise In Tension

US President Donald Trump has issued a serious warning to Iran, suggesting it will be destroyed if a conflict breaks out between the two countries.

Mr. Trump said in a tweet on Sunday, "If Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end of Iran," "Never threaten the United States again!"
The US has deployed additional warships and planes to the Gulf in recent days.
But Mr. Trump's tweet marks a shift in tone after recent attempts to downplay the possibility of military conflict.
Only a matter of days ago, the president told aides that he did not want US pressure on Iran to turn into a conflict.

    And when asked by reporters last Thursday if the US was going to war, Mr. Trump answered: "I hope not."
    Iran has also moved to talk down concerns over the escalating tensions. On Saturday, its foreign minister insisted there was no appetite for war.
    "There will not be a war since neither we want war nor does anyone have the illusion they can confront Iran in the region," Mohammad Javad Zarif told state news agency Irna.
    And on Sunday Iran's Fars news agency reported that the commander of the elite Islamic Revolution Guards Corps, Maj Gen Hossein Salami, also said Iran was not seeking a conflict - but added that the US was "afraid of war and don't have the will for it".
