President Trump understands how to stop Iran. Their nuclear program, and their support of terror. The best way is to hurt Iran’s economy and the economic vehicles Iran uses to finance its global terror network. This means Europe also has to play ball or it will also suffer consequences.
US Warns against Business with Iran
Sigal Mandelker, the Treasury Undersecretary for Terrorism and Finance Intelligence gave a detailed presentation on what Iran is doing to move money and weapons to Syria, Lebanon, Yemen and elsewhere. She pointed out the key role of the Central Bank of Iran.
Sigal highlighted that Iran “is a regime that uses shell and front companies to conceal its tracks. And all of this to support terrorism, support WMD proliferation and exploiting its own people through corruption and human rights abuses.”
All of this was ignored by Obama’s Iran deal.
Trump understands that the best way to stop Iran is by reimposing economic sanctions. It was the sanctions that were successful in bringing Iran to the negotiating table. Obama’s huge mistake was ending the sanctions without Iran stopping either it’s nuclear program or its terror activities.
Once Obama signed the nuclear deal, he opened the floodgates of business with Iran. US, European and global companies all rushed to sign lucrative business deals with Iran. Trump is now ending this.
Sigal continued that “We have made clear that companies doing business in Iran face substantial risks. And those risks are even greater as we reimpose nuclear-related sanctions. We will hold those doing prohibitive business with Iran to account.”
Trump “You will see how powerful the sanctions are when it comes to Iran.”
Finally a Leader
European leaders are worried as to how far America will go to sanction Europe’s banks and companies if they insist on doing business with Iran. They should be. The world finally has a leader who means business to end the genocidal tendencies of the biggest state sponsor of terror today, Iran.
