Tillerson warns ‘unchecked Iran’ could be as bad as North Korea


Secretary of State Rex Tillerson warned Wednesday that an “unchecked Iran” had the potential to follow in North Korea’s footsteps — and “take the world along with it.”
Speaking to reporters at the State Department, Tillerson said the US was ultimately at risk of going to nuclear war with the Middle East nation, should it decide to keep building more missiles, much like the Hermit Kingdom has been doing.
  “Iran is the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism and is responsible for intensifying multiple conflicts and undermining U.S. interests in countries such as Syria, Yemen, Iraq, and Lebanon,” Tillerson explained.
“Whether it be assassination attempts, support of weapons of mass destruction, [or] deploying destabilizing militias, Iran spends its treasure and time disrupting peace,” he said.

Tillerson went on to claim that former President Barack Obama’s 2015 nuclear agreement between the UN and Iran was a comby Chris Perezplete failure — citing reports that the country displayed a missile inscribed “death to Israel” during a military parade on Tuesday.
