President Trump reinstates Iran sanctions

UPDATE:

______________________________________________________________

Sanctions will go back into place effective midnight tonight.

Fox News

President Trump on Monday renewed sanctions on Iran as he followed through on vows to unravel the Obama-era nuclear deal with Tehran.

“Our policy is based on a clear-eyed assessment of the Iranian dictatorship, its sponsorship of terrorism, and its continuing aggression in the Middle East and all around the world,” Trump said in a statement.

The move comes three months after Trump pulled out of the deal and is part of an effort to apply “maximum economic pressure” on the regime, according to the administration.

The order drew a swift rebuke from European allies, though, whose foreign ministers said they “deeply regret” the re-imposition of U.S. sanctions on Iran. The European Union issued a “blocking statute” Monday to protect European businesses from the sanctions.

A senior administration official told the Associated Press the United States is “not particularly concerned” by such EU efforts to protect European firms…

The first set of U.S. sanctions coming back on Monday target Iran’s automotive sector as well as gold and other metals.

A second batch of U.S sanctions targeting Iran’s oil sector and central bank will be re-imposed in early November.

    Old Barry ‘Shiite for Brains’ POtuS wanted international centers of power where those historically picked on by white powers could be…well…powerful. Guess he believed that people of color being picked on by other people of color was preferable to their being picked on by Europeans and their offshoots. As if it makes a difference to the chicken who eats it.
    His mollycoddling violent Islam wherever he found it didn’t raise suspicions against him as he was…a protected person…and questioning anything he did would be racist. Reminds me of Louisiana governor Edwards (the real one, not our current pretender) who being widely believed to be a crooked joked that he was so popular the only way he wouldn’t get elected was if he were caught in bed with a dead woman or a live boy.
    I believe Obama was trying to reshape the power picture of the Moslem world by having a Mideast nuclear power to balance the European influence in Turkey and Saudi Arabia. Pakistan balances out the Far East, especialy the European influenced India. I believe that he worked out that agreement with Iran as part of his plan to empower the Mideast Moslem world in confronting Europe. Seeing as how that wasn’t quite working out the way he planned it he and his international engineering pals are moving the plan along by flooding Europe with uncivilized, feral dross from North Africa and the Arabic Moslem countries.
