Iran condemns US sanctions move

22 May 2018

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo speaks at the Heritage Foundation, on the topic of "After the Deal: A New Iran Strategy", in Washington, D.C., on May 21.

According to Iran's ILNA news agency, Rouhani went on to say, "We will continue our path with the support of our nation". The world today does not accept America to decide for the world, as countries are independent ... that era is over ... The Korea sanctions were possible in part because the continued provocations by Pyongyang - most notably the testing of nuclear bombs - defied years of United Nations Security Council resolutions.

Colonel Rob Manning, a Pentagon spokesman, told reporters the military was looking at potential actions to push back against Iran's regional military influence as part of a larger USA government response.

"Do the Americans think that the silk glove that they've taken out and the iron hand that they've extended to the people, a hand that's backed by Israel and the [Mujahedeen-e-Khalq organization], will make Iranian people think that America wants democracy?"

A staunch opponent of the Iran nuclear deal, Netanyahu again showered US President Donald Trump with praise for pulling out of the deal on May 8.

The Treasury Department already has reimposed sanctions on the head of Iran's Central Bank and other companies and groups.

Critics may charge that this "policy" is impossible - a diplomatic smokescreen meant to cloak a policy whose fundamental goal is regime change in Iran. "After our sanctions come in force, it will be battling to keep its economy alive". "At the end of the day, the Iranian people will get to make a choice about their leadership. It will not have the resources to do both", Pompeo said.

"Pompeo's remarks once again revealed the poor intelligence, weak oversight, analytical backwardness and confusion in decision-making processes in the United States, and showed radical and hawkish currents in the USA neither know history, nor can learn lessons from it", said the statement.

Pompeo threatened what he called the "strongest sanctions in history" if the Iranian government fails to comply, adding that Washington "will apply unprecedented financial pressure on the Iranian regime".

It is better for Iran to suspend its commitments under the JCPOA because the agreement has been breached, Larijani said.

It should be clear by now that Iranian regime's pursuit of nuclear weapons will only be definitively resolved once that regime is no longer in power. That possibility so rattled the regime that as the intensity of the uprising became apparent, Iranian regime President Hassan Rouhani telephoned his French counterpart to urge him to crack down on the NCRI.

At the same time, Pompeo offered Iran a series of dramatic potential USA concessions if it agrees to make "major changes". Currently, inspectors must outline the basis for their suspicions.

Limiting Iran's missile capabilities was one of Pompeo's main demands. At least six Americans are imprisoned or unaccounted for, and they are widely considered to be bargaining chips. "We call on the entire global community to join this American position", Netanyahu added. "And one can not help but think that is the strategy and the goal".

A bad decision such as imposing even tougher sanctions on Iran, an attempt at regime change, or a military strike of any sort would push the country towards a military theocracy far more repressive and uncompromising than before both at home and overseas. We will track down Iranian operatives and the Hezbollah proxies operating around the world, and we will crush them. Are they not the most responsible for your economic struggles?

Pompeo had on Monday issued a severe warning to Iran, saying Washington would be ready to impose the "strongest sanctions in history" if it does not alter its regional policies. "It is worth the Iranian people considering".
