The Nuclear Posture Review (NPR) of the United States shows the country’s increasing reliance on nuclear weapons, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said, stressing that such an approach would bring humanity closer to destruction.

“The US Nuclear Posture Review reflects greater reliance on nukes in violation of the NPT [Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons], bringing humankind closer to annihilation. No wonder the Doomsday Clock is at its most dangerous since 1953,” Zarif wrote on Twitter.

The Iranian minister also criticized Washington’s approach to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) by saying that the “obduracy” of US President Donald Trump in “killing” the agreement comes from the same “dangerous imprudence.”

The NPR, published on Friday, claims that a stronger US nuclear deterrent is needed to discourage Russia, China, Iran and North Korea from either developing new weapons or expanding existing arsenals.

Moreover, the doctrine envisages short-term plans to modify existing submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) warheads to provide a low-yield option and pursue a modern nuclear-armed sea-launched cruise missile (SLCM) in the long run.

The NPR notes that these activities are not intended at being employed in a nuclear warfare, however, they are aimed at raising the US nuclear threshold to ensure that the country’s potential adversaries perceive no possible advantage in nuclear escalation.

Iran has to deal with Donald Trump who has the God Complex. A god complex is an unshakable belief characterized by consistently inflated feelings of personal ability, privilege, or infallibility. A person having a God complex will always believe that he is perfection personified, and will expect to be treated that way, too. According to him, he will be forever incapable of ever making a mistake, and will never accept responsibility for anything that goes wrong. The rules embedded in society’s mindset will never be important for a person with this complex, as he’ll deem himself to be above these… Read more »

By essence, a theocracy (like Iran) has God-complex in its constitution too…
That’s why theocracy totally sucks, history has proven it, no matter the religion.
Put all regimes with cut of personalty in the same bag, as the same principle applies.
