Secretary of State Mike Pompeo threatened Iran with a string of new demands in a Monday speech, following President Trump's recent decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Iran nuclear deal. To deter Iran from developing nuclear weapons, Pompeo said, the U.S. will impose "the strongest sanctions in history" and create military pressure. "We will track down Iranian operatives and their Hezbollah proxies operating around the world and crush them," said Pompeo. America's top diplomat added that the U.S. would eventually be willing to lift Iranian sanctions if Tehran ended its nuclear weapons program and stopped its "destabilizing activities in the region."
