Pompeo Vows US Will Never Let Iran Acquire Russian & Chinese Weapons

Originally appeared at ZeroHedge

Weeks ago the United States lost its bid to get the UN Security Council to extend the international arms embargo on Iran, which is set to expire October 18.

And now on Tuesday Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is vowing to never let Iran acquire Chinese and Russian weapons, but it remains unclear precisely how he hopes to make this happen.

Pompeo said during an interview with European radio broadcaster “France Inter” on Tuesday that “Nothing has been done so far to enable the extension of this ban, and therefore the United States assumed its responsibilities.” He’s of course referencing the fact that the Europeans have by and large sought to uphold the terms of the 2015 nuclear deal, or JCPOA.

Pompeo added:

“We will act in this manner. We will prevent Iran from acquiring Chinese tanks and Russian air defense systems, and after that, selling weapons to Hezbollah undermines the efforts of French President Emmanuel Macron in Lebanon.”

Washington has stood isolated over its decision to enact so-called “snapback” sanctions on the Islamic Republic in late August.

Ironically the snapback option is available to participants in the JCPOA, which the US formally withdrew from in May 2018.

Meanwhile, over the past year there’s been talk of Moscow actually supplying Iran with its advanced S-400 anti-air defense system, something which the Trump administration might almost treat as an act of war.

Interestingly, on the very day Pompeo made is new statements vowing to never let Russian weapons come into Iran’s hands, the Kremlin was busy show off the S-400’s capabilities.

Iran has also come back into headlines this week after it was alleged leaders in Tehran are plotting to assassinate the US ambassador to South Africa in revenge for the January US drone strike on Gen. Qasem Soleimani.

In response, Trump vowed that any such aggression out of Iran would be met with an American response “1,000 times greater in magnitude!” However, Trump did not exactly confirm the alleged plot, instead he merely cited “press reports” suggesting that it may be true.

We have subs with nukes little boy……………………..LOL.

johnny rotten

But how? Is the fat boy afraid of Russian and Chinese weapons, until yesterday they denigrated them and today they are a source of concern? something is wrong, here someone lies or has always lied…


US was very interested in the 2020 weapons exhibition in Moscow. Maybe the first evaluation was just distributed, leading to panic in Lengley and Washington DC…

Potato Man

1. US gonna make another false flag 2. They are crying like bitches because they know they can’t stop Iran 3. Zion gang raping Trump and Fat pigs in Satan house

BTW Iran already make deals with China and Russia….when they sign the JCPOA, the WHOLE point was Iran don’t use Nuclear weapons and get to buy and sell weapons.


Not to forget: JCPOA restricts the right to enrich Uranium for Civil use to a lower enrichment grade, Despite higher enrichment is granted to each signatory of the Atomic weapons ban treaty.

Again we have to take over another country’s management. Iran cant handle their $42 trillion oil/gas reserves. They are kissiing and kissing their dear treasure, farting up in the face of America, but the Iranian people still suffer from the lack of food, freedom and faggots.


Dear Mr. Pump-Poo, My name is Naba, I am a 6 years old girl from Iran and we have no fags here, Please bomb us so we have freedom and democracy so we can live like fags. Yours truly, Naba, a 6 years old girl from Iran

LMFAO how is Afghanistan, Iraq or Syria bud? Counties that had some or were in a bad shape of military. Go fuk with China so we can laugh in after life LOL. Why you talk like US didn’t try to take Iran? Don’t be shy, it isn’t like US set a coup in Iran with British apes, which failed and led to Iran-Iraq war. (US support Iran Iraq war) “American support for Ba’athist Iraq during the Iran–Iraq War, in which it fought against post-revolutionary Iran, included several billion dollars’ worth of economic aid, the sale of dual-use technology, non-U.S. origin weaponry, military intelligence, and special operations training.”

Iraq lost that war…………If Iran was weak US would be in Iran. BUT from October that would be a wet dream for US. US sold weapons to Taiwan – China gonna sell weapons to Iran. US pushing NATO in Poland+UKR – Russia making Military Partnership with Iran. Fat Pompeo can cry all he wants but that fact is US failed to stop Iran from buy and sell weapons at UN and go luck….

Fuck Iran they are an undemocratic nation !!!

So? Since when you have to be democratic to have a life? But what about Saudistan? Are they democratic? Turkey’s erdogan put in prison all the opposition. In EU you are not allowed to speak against the official narative (example covid plandemic or gay fart). Is it democratic that a minority of 0,1% of sexual sick people (including pedophiles) to control the life of the majority of 99,9% of the normal people? What has democracy become, mate? If its not just a killer of the human liberty and individuality?

I love people like, you go and kiss and suck Wahhabi States (KSA, UAE, Qatar), and cry about Iran? For what?

9/11 was funny huh you like that didn’t you, all those soldiers that died in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan thanks to Wahhabi States who helped Daesh/ISIS was for nothing. BTW you lost those wars, now trying to steal to save some money.

You are one of the lowest shit, you haven’t seen Iran or you care to know, so how about you STFU and go open your ass like good boy for Wahhabi Sunnis to rape you. You died for money, the oil money of pigs that kill your people in other countries and your government protect them.

“The only trouble with capitalism is capitalists; they’re too damn greedy.” You mean nothing for a rich guy in US or to Trump, if they can make money of you they will do it. “undemocratic nation” really…

Americans cried about China stealing (intellectual property)….how much US government claim it was? 1B, but the same time you don’t care giving about 10+B to Zion State each year…

Do you really think KSA, UAE, Qatar are democratic nations? US kiss their asses 24/7 and Wahhabi Sunnis just like Zion can walk all over you… You are fuked in head.

Iran-Iraq war “The US Army has concluded that Iran was the only victor of the eight-year US campaign to remove Iraqi president Saddam Hussein and replace him with a democratic regime. That’s one of the findings of a massive historical study released Jan.”

Iran gonna make KSA, UAE, Qatar, Omen and Yemen democratic countries LMFAO.


Is economic segregation against Arabs and Negros democratic?


Did he just used a press report by anonymous sources, yada yada yada as a proof from the same media that he always calls “fake news”?

There is no one, no one in the entire US government and military that compares to the late General. So we’ll retaliate by other means. Assassination of an old bag-seller for the murder of general is so pathetic, we will punish ourselves if someone from us actually plots to do it.

A word of advise to the old bag-seller: Right now the safest place for you is probably the Iranian embassy. A lot of us sniff a false-flag in the cooking. Hurry up and save yourself by taking refuge in the Iranian, Russian or Chinese embassy…

Pompous fat ass CIA terrorist


So what are you going to do about it FATS? https://media3.giphy.com/media/l4Epa2k2CxidHqDpm/giphy.gif

I actually believe the Zios on this. If Iran gets modern weapons it will be an existential threat to Israhell’s existence and supremacy over the middle east. There is no way this will be allowed by the Khazars. They will fight to the last ZioAmerican soldier.

Iran don’t settle for anything less than one squadron of Russia’s Mig31’s. The Foxhound is super fast, high altitude, long range interceptor. Equipped with long range air to air missiles just one squadron would be perfect to scare off strategic bombers from Diego Garcia. Don’t let the Russians talk you into buying junk.

Assad must stay

Why would they sell them junk?

chris chuba

Because Putin is always trying to appease the U.S. and Israel falsely believing that an act of goodwill buys him favor, ‘you don’t need the Mig31, we’ve upgraded the Su24 with new electronics, it’s more than enough for your needs’.

Kind of like why the U.S. always sells Egypt and the Arab states their tier 2 military stuff to keep Israel happy.

Assad must stay

That would be stupid as hell if he believed that, strengthening iran also strengthens russia from the west and zionists, i really hope he is smarter than that, i mean what is he expecting from them, a kiss? Hahahhaa

Assad must stay

Pompeo should forget about this totally fruitless aim and instead vow to lose a few hundred pounds instead hahahahah

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
