U.S. Outraged Over Europe’s Refusal to Extend Iran Sanctions

WFB: The European Union is resisting Trump administration efforts to foster greater international coordination on holding Tehran accountable for its rising sponsorship of terrorism and expanding ballistic missile program, according to State Department documents viewed exclusively by the Washington Free Beacon.

“The EU had no new [sanctions] designations in the second half of 2019,” the State Department informed Congress last month in a nonpublic notification that highlights the deepening divide between the Trump administration and its European allies when it comes to sanctioning Iran.

The EU’s opposition to new sanctions has outraged hardliners in the administration and Congress who have been pressuring Europe to take a unified stand with the United States against Iran’s expanding missile program and financing of regional terror groups. European leaders maintain that any new sanctions would prompt Tehran to leave the landmark nuclear accord, which Iran has been violating for several months. read more

  1. I imagine much of Europe in now either openly or covertly under Islamic control, So I wouldn’t expect them to cooperate in anything aimed to restrain an Islamic country.

  2. The EU’s interests are not (necessarily) our own.
    And they will be the first opportunity of Iran’s nuclear policy – not Israel, as we’re led to believe, because Israel won’t take it lying down – Europe will.
    So, we should let them stumble into their own destruction, as they’ve done for the past 1000 years, or so.
    They’ve learned nothing.

    What that dead dude said about the cynics(?) that they know the price of everything but the value of nothing applies to the whole of Europe.

  3. Left Coast Dan@


    Tax the crap out of BMW, AUDI, Mercedes, FIAT and ESPECIALLY RENAULT!

    I like the way DJT exempted Britain.

  4. I wonder if there’s a loophole to ask for reimbursement for our rebuilding effort following WW2 under the Marshall Plan? With interest and adjusted for inflation. That would certainly get their attention.
