    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.

    USA behaviour is so strange because US dollar nears to death. Death of dollar means death of the USA imperalism and poverty in the long run. USA is starting to collapse like USSR

    These sanctions are stupid. It’s only going to destabilize Iran. Iran is a good nation. It has a lot of potential. Iran’s islam isn’t dangerous only the Sunni Wahhibists and Salafist ones are.

    midterms? just another round of auction and musical chairs by untruthful, cowardly "elites." the cowardice is not about martial prowess or material achievements, it's failure to face the truth, dishonesty and untruthfulness in thought word and deed - that is cowardice. there might be reason to vote in state and local if there is actually something in it for humanity, but really it won't make any difference. as always, the so-called "elite" class is utterly clueless and ignorant, violent imbeciles and self serving cheats. there is no meaningful action on climate change, no commitment to human rights or anything else, just more crime. they will hide in their estates and bunkers like the cheatful cowards they are when the environmental catastrophe they are working so hard for finally comes about. i wouldn't be surprised if one or other of the rascals with nuclear weapons tries to blow up the whole thing. Obama and the Dems needlessly provoked Putin and the Russians while Trump needlessly provokes China and North Korea, they are obsessed with torturing Iran for their corrupted and ignorant "religion," and the thugs are taking turns raping and murdering the people of Syria just like a pack of thugs surrounding an innocent victim and pummeling them to death. first the Putin thug bombs, then the Assad thug, then the Arab dictators take their turn, then the Trump thug, now it's the Bibi thug's turn, and so on to extermination. of all people i would have thought the Jews would have learned their lesson after WWII and the Holocaust (yes it DID happen, my grandpa was in Patton's Army), but no - "God promised Israel", and the crazy fundamentalist Christians - it's all a free-for-all, it's all on Jesus, "we're forgiven."

    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)

    These US sanctions on Iran are in violation of the Treaty of Amity of 1955. Trump knew the illegality of his actions because the International Court of Justice told him so a month ago. America, what kind of government you are having ... complete ignorance on international laws and total disregard of a fully ratified treaty?

    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?

    And we keep our word when it’s given, unlike the totally untrustworthy US.....
    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.....
