Trump warns of ‘obliteration’ in event of war with Iran, but relying on sanctions now to hurt economy

What Trump is saying is that if the United States has to go to war, it won't be a prolonged event that entangles the country for years.  
He's not saying anything differently than he said to North Korea.  It's either peace and prosperity for all and no nukes for Iran and North Korea, or obliteration for Iran and North Korea.  No nuance or equivocation.   Just a clear and unambiguous choice.  Like I predicted with North Korea, the Iranian mullahs will want to live to see another day.  The ball is in their court.  
Fox News reports President Trump has expressed his willingness to open talks with Iranian officials without any preconditions – saying that he doesn’t want a war with the Islamic Republic, but if it comes down to an armed conflict it will be “obliteration like you've never seen before.”
In an interview that aired Sunday on NBC’s “Meet The Press,” Trump said the only line he was drawing in the sand when it came to discussions with Iran was that the country could not have a nuclear weapon.
“I'm not looking for war and if there is, it'll be obliteration like you've never seen before,” Trump said. “But I'm not looking to do that. But you can't have a nuclear weapon. You want to talk? Good. Otherwise you can have a bad economy for the next three years.”
