By putting Iran "on notice" for its aggressive behavior, President Donald Trump has taken aim at a country that's opposed by many U.S. allies.Israel and the Gulf Arab states share the administration's antipathy toward Iran, and the regime's hard-liners gave Trump a pretext with a ballistic missile test last weekend that arguably violated a U.N. Security Council resolution.In a tweet Thursday, Trump echoed Flynn's comment that Iran should be grateful for the 2015 nuclear agreement negotiated by President Barack Obama, which Trump termed a "terrible deal," rather than continuing its aggressive actions.He said in an interview that his roughly 3,000-man Sunni Arab group is now being trained inside Syria by U.S. Special Operations Forces, alongside Syrian Kurdish fighters, in preparation for the coming assault on Raqqa. He said his group also had "good and balanced relations" with Russia, even though it opposes Assad and Iran, Russia's partners. Iran is among the toughest foreign policy challenges Trump will face, and he should be careful to avoid ill-planned early actions that would make it his Bay of Pigs.
