News conference: US Sanctions on Iran - BBC News

  • Published on Nov 5, 2018
  • The re-imposition of the full panoply of sanctions against Iran that were waived under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) nuclear agreement marks a high-point for President Donald Trump's foreign policy.
    Iran's President Hassan Rouhani has vowed to "break" swingeing sanctions re-imposed by the US targeting core parts of the economy.
    The Trump administration is restoring all sanctions lifted under the 2015 nuclear deal in a bid to pressure Iran.
    They will hit oil exports, shipping and banks, and make it difficult to do business with the oil-rich nation.
    But Mr Rouhani struck a defiant tone, saying that Iran would "continue selling oil".

    I'm persian & live in Iran...
    The problem is politics thinks with sanctions they Punished and Restriction the Iranian Government and at last it's Cause the insurgency of the Iranian people and change regime!!!
    But the truth is opposite
    In iran government gives Food, medicine, free medical insurance, university admission fees, donations to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard members , army and people whose against USA and israel !!!
    They don't have any problem
    Because they are supported by regime.
    Sanctions just caused problems for ordinary citizens
    Sanctions make The price of Every thing triple or more
    It's make people poor jobless sick hungry and afraid
    It's inspire young man to join IRGC and army for getting Subsidies
    Everyone loves their country , flag , family
    Most iranian respect ✊ for USA people
    But regime use all power to show us hateful ....
    They uses soldiers without Military uniform , the student , employees of government to participate in revolutionary march !
    They pay poor people to march
    They even give free tickets to Tehran to people of another city to came Tehran
    And they just show Tehran and some religious cities marches...
    Yes you're just punish and weaken the people who are against regime and make dictators and they army powerful and stronger than ever

    Now tell us the list of countries that are exempt from set sunctions. All major importers of Iran oil are not under those sunctions.
    Just can't get through they fat covered brains, that even they allies turning away from them.
    The era of "America eats first and best pieces" is coming to an end.
    Have a civil war or something, give a world a break from you "Leadership". You must want to cool that brain, when it's working way beyond it capacity. It must overheat.

    Iran has not destabilised a single country in the middle east. Iraq was destabilised by the U.S invasion. Yemen destabilised by years of Saudi interference and now drawn into a protracted conflict between gulf states because the Saudis can't bare to lose their puppet stooge government that has completely lost popularity in Yemen. Syria destabilised by CIA psyops to garner regime change to remove Assad, then flooded by foriegn militias armed to the teeth by the Saudis and the UAE. Palestine destabilised by years of aggression from Israel and partisan politics by the U.S favouring Israeli expansionism. Libya destroyed by a NATO campaign to oust Gaddafi after he started to announce that he would barter oil on a gold backed system instead of using the greenback (petrodollar) Iran is not behind any of these conflicts. The U.S just can't handle the fact that Iran seems very adept at choosing the winners in each conflict and fostering good relations with them.

    i was thinking about we could do... like so I can show you something (definite)
    so I spend a lot of time influencing things put stratedgy together type stuff in the past, ( I can build on to everything put successes together type stuff.)
    what if you pick, one single sanction, and I destroy immediately one week complete set type stuff, and its your new problem child, it will influence the rest of your career, could change the whole angle of a nation. and I can connect to everything else ive been working on make it a part of the system. think about it for a minute, pick your most righteous solid sanction,
    think about it for minute
    ( how many countries will be interested in it) ( i guarantee I can take it apart, break it of fill it with things, connect to things send it in a whole new direction making it ended , then become something else type stuff completely that I make).
    do you see how important influence is, think about it, should u spend 90% of the year, influencing Republican vs Democrat jargon, campaigning all day long... or should be building a solid American treasury system supporting it TGB the way I mean it. (that's good for America, TGB the way I mean it)

    Make no mistake about it... If Iran suddenly decided to drop and kiss the feet of the US government as Saudi Arabia does, there will be no sanctions or repercussions for them to worry about no matter what they do. Sanctions are only a realistic possibility with nations who refuse to allow themselves to be leashed and controlled by Washington. Only a few months ago, Saudi Arabia wilfully bombed a school bus in Yemen filled with young schoolkids on their way to learn. They were instantly blown up into pieces using American made bombs that the Saudis paid America millions for (this is confirmed). Imagine for a second that exact situation occurring except the perpetrating country was one which stands on its own feet and does not allow itself to be dictated by the US and imagine the bombs beings proven to be made in Russia. Think of the reaction and repercussions if Iran had killed the dissident journalist who was also an American resident. Hypocrisy, thy name is America.

      secondly the sanctions are because Russia and Iran beat America, Israel, Saudi Arabia, England In Syria. The goal was to overthrow Assad so They could construct a pipeline to Europe and economically cripple Russia. There plan has failed, now they have to resort to Sanctioning Iran and Russia in hopes that they will play ball.

Yet the truth is that Saudis are not alone and Americans are ordering them to do whatever they are doing. without the US, Saudis can not survive even a day, so please judge for yourself who is the terrorist supporters?

    This is going to help the US lose even more global standing, and what few friends you have, and this will allow your enemies to strike as and when they want.
    Just as putin wants so that he can make russia great again, and isolating the US(by its own hand) so that they can attack it with impunity.....
    And tRump💨 is probably doing this, just to clear a debt that he cannot pay back, because it too large.....

But how many Jews countries?? You think Israel share it's boundaries with peaceful muslim neighbors?? Don't you think Muslims are not comfortable with rest of the world??
