On Wednesday, the semi-official ISNA news agency quoted Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi as saying: "We are aware that evident elements are trying to put America into a war with Iran for their own goals".
Mr Bolton and other warmongers need to know that the strategic patience, high vigilance and full defense readiness of the Islamic Republic of Iran, which emanates from the strong resolve of its great nation, will not let them fulfill their ominous schemes to create chaos in the region.
"There's no doubt in anybody's mind in Washington who's responsible for this", Bolton said.
USA officials told CBS News senior national security correspondent David Martin just days after the tankers were damaged that an American military team visited the UAE and made an initial assessment that Iran or Iranian-backed proxies had used explosives to blow holes in the four ships.
Bolton, who has spearheaded an increasingly hawkish USA policy on Iran, described recent bomb attacks on tankers off the United Arab Emirates and a pipeline pumping station in Saudi Arabia, as well as a rocket attack in Baghdad's Green Zone, as "manifestations of concern" about Iran.
A few days ago, the Pentagon accused Iran's Revolutionary Guard of sabotaging four vessels at the Fujairah port.

Iran will continue to rollback its adherence to key portions of the deal until all of its "demands are met", according to the country's senior leadership.

President Trump on Tuesday afternoon tweeted: "Storms overnight across OH and many other States were very unsafe and damaging". The storms strew debris so thick that at one point, highway crews had to use snowplows to clear an interstate.
During his trip to Japan, Zarif said Iran was committed to its obligations under the global nuclear deal despite the us withdrawal from the landmark agreement.
The UAE has said it will wait for the results of the investigation before placing blame for the attack.
During Bolton's visit, the U.S. and United Arab Emirates announced that a defence cooperation agreement signed earlier this year had come into force "at a critical time", a joint statement said. But the US also earlier cut off Iran's ability to sell its uranium to Russian Federation in exchange for unprocessed yellow-cake uranium. Iran says it will wait and monitor the developments in the region before deciding about the offers.
The White House said Wednesday that Bolton will meet with his counterparts from Israel and Russian Federation next month in Jerusalem to discuss regional security issues. Bolton declined to say what the USA would do in response to that.
"I do believe Iran would like to talk and if they'd like to talk, we'll talk also", Trump stated, adding that Abe has a "very good relationship with Iran".
Bolton however declined to provide specific evidence for Iran's hand in the attacks.
"Raising this ludicrous claim in a meeting of those with a long history of anti-Iran policies is not unusual". "Right now I'm a government official".
He also dismissed reports that he faced criticism from Trump over his hard-line stance with what he described as an old proverb: "The dogs bark and the caravan moves on".
