Trump’s National Security Adviser, Michael Flynn said yesterday that "Obama administration failed to respond adequately to Tehran's malign actions" and put Iran "on notice," without elaborating on what actions may be taken.

President Trump followed up with a series of tweets today: "Iran has been formally PUT ON NOTICE for firing a ballistic missile...Should have been thankful for the terrible deal the U.S. made with them!" Iran responded Thursday by promising to "vigorously" continue its missile activity.

How concerned should the US be about Iran’s activity, and how aggressively should the administration respond?
