"Most Powerful Maximum Pressure Campaign": U.S. Imposes New Round Of Sanctions On Iran

Click to see the full-size image

On May 8, the adminsitration of US President Donald Trump announced that it’s imposing a new round of sanctions on Iran.

“One year ago, I dramatically strengthened our national security by ceasing America’s participation in the horrible, one-sided Iran nuclear deal. Today, I am signing an executive order to impose sanctions with respect to Iran’s iron, steel, aluminum, and copper sectors, the regime’s largest non-petroleum-related sources of export revenue.

Under the Iran nuclear deal, Iran was free to engage in and sponsor terrorist networks, develop its missile force, foment regional conflicts, unjustly detain United States citizens, and brutalize its own people, all while maintaining a robust nuclear infrastructure—not to mention, as we now know, its extensive nuclear weapons archive,” Trump said in a statement released by the White House.

Trump further claimed that because of his actions “the Iranian regime is struggling to fund its campaign of violent terror, as its economy heads into an unprecedented depression, government revenue dries up, and inflation spirals out of control.”

“We are successfully imposing the most powerful maximum pressure campaign ever witnessed, which today’s action will further strengthen.

Over the last month, the United States has taken several steps to increase the effectiveness of our campaign. We designated the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as a Foreign Terrorist Organization and increased the pressure on Iran ten-fold through full application of United States sanctions on Iranian oil exports. Today’s action targets Iran’s revenue from the export of industrial metals—10 percent of its export economy—and puts other nations on notice that allowing Iranian steel and other metals into your ports will no longer be tolerated.

Tehran can expect further actions unless it fundamentally alters its conduct. Since our exit from the Iran deal, which is broken beyond repair, the United States has put forward 12 conditions that offer the basis of a comprehensive agreement with Iran. I look forward to someday meeting with the leaders of Iran in order to work out an agreement and, very importantly, taking steps to give Iran the future it deserves,” he said.

But was he as funny as Dave Chappelle ?

The reason is simple,it is called mirroring.
The enemy(Evil) portrays itself as almost identical
People then Either think the original is of suspect
origin or even a fake.
The copy offers people the same things but it
motivation is trickery for the purpose of entrapment.
At some point after or in the process of aligning with
the copy you will be required to perform some act
that locks you into submission.
This act will seem innocent perhaps,ie,laying in a
coffin as the MASONS do,as they profess ALLEGIANCE to
SATAN,,,under another name.
Usually you are attracted because of the promise of personal
enrichment.

The US wants a war, it’s only a matter of time before someone grants their wish.

occupybacon

That someone should try harder

jorge

jorge

Yes.

occupybacon

That’s very good Jorge, cause that’s what entertainment sites are for.

The US is in war against everybody, including its own people.

The US and the Zionists are hell bent on creating a conflict in the Persian Gulf region and destroying Iran as it is the last impediment to Zionist hegemony. Iran under Rouhani’s weak and vacillating leadership has not been tough enough to give the US and Zionist warmongers an adequate response. Zarif has been a total failure as a FM as the JCPOA was an unenforceable agreement without any safeguards or benefits for Iran. US did not even unfreeze the over $400 billion (in current value) assets it had frozen after the revolution. Iran is facing an incremental sanctions regime and economic political pressure mechanism which in the end is intended to force a shooting war for the benefit of Zionism. The only realistic option for Iran is to increase uranium enrichment to bomb grade 90% as soon as possible and test a nuclear weapon or it will face massive destruction. Bolton and his Zionist masters are intent on attacking Iran and without Iranian’s possession of a nuclear deterrent, a repeat of Iraq scenario is looking very likely.

The US role model consists on terrorism. The world should have to protect their young generation.

Rex drabble

Perfect for them Rob,,,They want us all under their control
IE,under one banner.If we all join into one country they only have
to infiltrate that leader ship an we are toast!!
Thats why they want one world govt.
Better I think to each individually say no and act in our own way
to defeat them
One huge wasp might be harder to kill but hundreds
would be practically impossible.
By the way,it is not America but the CABAL who runs almost
country that wants our submission.

Why GB invaded and divided India, Utuman empire and African countries? Why GB invaded hundred tribes and invented America. Why America and GB invaded European countries and divided them into seven small countries? Why they struggle to divide Russia and China and other many countries? Because GB and America want to keep their hegemony on the whole world. Do you want that GB and America this dream become reality?

Astrid Watanabe

You must be kidding! Christians slaughtered lots of people.

Rob

Read Holly bible. Jews at the time of Jesus birth have murdered thousands of babies.

“Better I think each individual say no and act in your own way to defeat them……”
The Dalai Lama says that too. There are many ways of saying no.

There is a Palestinian in Gaza who makes art out of found objects, like a bullet removed from his brother’s body.

If Iraqi Ex president would not dismantle their missiles and nuclear assets then Iraq would never be invaded by America.

If Libyan leader Muamar Qadafi would not dismantle and handed over their nuclear assets then Libya would not invaded by American proxies.

These are lessons for Iran. This world belongs to brave unscared governments. In brain if blood vessels are weak then brain hemorrhage can happened.

Sinbad2

Neither country had nukes.
Saddam’s biggest mistake was to let the arms inspectors, who were CIA in, they located all of Iraq’s military bases etc, so the US could bomb them before the invasion. He even let them search his palace, he thought that if he proved he had no WMD’s they would leave him alone.

As soon as you show weakness the Americans attack, countries that don’t back down like Iran and NK survive.

Rob

Thats I mean. You are absolutely right.

verner

defy defy defy the dictates from the neo-nazi government in washington dc – the neo-nazi crooks and criminals in washington dc have usurped the powers of government from the american people, just like hitler and his merry band of criminals did about 90 years ago and it’s well known what happened, ww2 – and the present day crooks and criminals are on the same path, together with the tel aviv nazi-squatters, war and more war. iran is a different kettle of fish however so anything untowards from the neo-nazis in washington dc will end with defeat, like most such ventures the morons have entertained over the last 70 years, starting with korea, vietnam and so on.

moreover the morons can’t afford another war and at the same time defending the squatters, which they will have to do once things get out of hand. 250 bucks per barrel when ras tanura is wreckedto pieces. what a scenario for the piece de resistance, donny the dunce, to behold.
