Deployment of aircraft carrier battle group and B-52 bombers demonstrates unmistaken U.S. resolve.

Front Page Mag: During his presidential run, Donald Trump argued that the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, colloquially known as the Iran deal, was among the worst deals ever negotiated by the United States with a foreign power and promised to withdraw from the JCPOA if elected. In May 2018, Trump kept his word but granted waivers to eight countries to continue purchasing Iranian oil. In May 2019 those waivers expired, further constricting Iran’s ability to export oil.

Sanctions instantly affected all aspects of the Iranian economy including its banking sector. The U.S. Treasury Department succeeded in disconnecting Iran’s banking industry from the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT). SWIFT enables banks to communicate with each other and facilitates international transactions. Even if rogue nations, like Turkey, attempted to skirt sanctions and purchase Iranian contraband, it would be nearly impossible for Iran to receive payment given its cutoff from SWIFT.

Iran’s economy is contracting and its currency is in freefall. It is estimated that the ban on oil exports alone is costing the regime some $35 billion a year and that’s before the expiration of the waivers. In April, the U.S. declared the IRGC a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) and this past week, the U.S. Treasury Department slapped sanctions on Iran’s industrial metals industry.

While the Europeans are technically still signatories to the JCPOA, European nations are fleeing Iran like rats from a sinking ship, opting to forgo business in the Islamic Republic rather than face the wrath of U.S. sanctions. Contrary to Democrats’ assertions, the economic pressures imposed by the Trump administration are not meant to effectuate regime change. Rather, they are designed to modify malign Iranian behavior and bring them back to the negotiating table for the purpose of modifying and altering certain deleterious provisions of the JCPOA, including absurd sunset clauses that allow Iran to enrich uranium 10 years post the signing of the JCPOA. The administration would also like curb Iranian ballistic missile development, something the Obama administration failed to adequately address.

Trump has made diplomatic overtures to the Iranians making clear to them that the U.S. does not seek confrontation and is willing to deal but Iran has adopted an inflexible, hostile-like posture. Last week, four commercial ships – two Saudi, one Norwegian and one United Arab Emirate flagged ship – were sabotaged near the Emirate port of Fujairah, which is located near the Gulf of Oman and the Strait of Hormuz prompting a 2% spike in the price of crude oil. Twenty percent of the world’s traded oil transits the Strait of Hormuz. No one is saying who carried out the sabotage but many are suggesting an Iranian fingerprint.

Iranian-backed Houthi rebels also attacked Saudi state-run Aramco oil installations with drones causing significant damage and disruption. The Saudis retaliated with airstrikes on Houthi-based targets in Yemen.. Keep reading

  1. Iran: death to america death to america!

    Usa: yeah thats enough of that. or else.

    leftys: they didn’t do anything!

    We have the capability to turn iran into rubble from a thousand miles offshore. And then turn the rubble into dust without losing one american life.

    Let’s remind the world.

  2. Let us NOT forget about those sailors in Husseins admin where Irrrrrrrrrran boarded OUR vessels.

    Glover won’t forget THAT one.

    What the POTUS said in response is RIGHT on he remembers that disgrace under the Choomer in Chief.

    Can you believe we DEALT with that shit?? At the time?

    And then Hussien and Valerie sent pallets full of $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

  3. First opening of B-52’s bomb bay doors should introduce Iran to Obama and Valerie Jarrett.

  4. Trump lied when he said his goal was to get the US out of more war. Now he and his administration’s war hawks are intending to carry out the war plans created under previous administrations. They not only want more war, but NUCLEAR war so that even the USA can be hit with nukes. The globalists want the USA to no longer exist as a strong, sovereign nation. They are succeeding in destroying this country in every way possible. There cannot be a one world government if there is even ONE strong nation that can resist. If warfare is so pleasing to the war hawks, let them be the ones to volunteer to die first. Iran has been demonized by liars, just as Syria was. Even the liars among supposed Christians that easily spew the desire for bombing Iran, that Israel hates so much for its existence.

  5. Why has the US government been so ready and willing to sacrifice Americans in Mideast wars? There is no reason to be proud of the death and destruction inflicted on countries that have NOT been threatening the US. And Christians especially should be ashamed of it all. PTSD experienced by veterans is understandable, and suicide a tragedy that should never have had to happen. Stop the needless continued aggression that Trump or any war hawks want.

    Israel Demands New War: War With Iran is the War to Deliberately Destroy America
    By Israel Shahak and Prof Michel Chossudovsky

    In 2007, General, retired 4-star U.S. Army general and Supreme Allied Commander of NATO during the 1999 War on Yugoslavia, publicly told the world the United States was planning to take out 7 nations in 5 years.

    In 1982, a research paper was released by the Association of Arab-American University Graduates, Inc., entitled “A Strategy for Israel in the Nineteen Eighties”. This document refers to what is now called the Oded Yinon plan, after the author’s name.

    In a nutshell, the United States has been at war in the Middle East, for the purposes of Israel’s plans for world domination, since 1991 – 28 years! The longest War in American history. These wars have no benefits for the people of America in any form. No harm was done to American citizens by the people being killed in this region of the world; worse, America’s wealth, world respect, Karma and legacy have nearly all been stolen or destroyed by this – madman – operation which has usurped the American government and taken its military as a mercenary army.
    I urge you to watch the video below for a complete, but short, discussion of how this happened and who was involved and where we are headed.

    Trump is Israel’s President; Bolton, Pompeo and a host of other religious fanatics, using Christian Zionism as a reason, are supporting this war, which will ultimately become a World War bringing America’s negative Karma back with terrible destruction.
