When Will They Crack? Trump Restores Sanctions on Iran

In the hotly-anticipated follow-up to one of President Trump’s most important acts – pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal – the Trump administration announced Monday that the economic sanctions were being put back into place against Tehran, a move that will put President Hassan Rouhani in a bad situation. With their economy already in shambles, Iran cannot afford to go back to life under the sanctions that were lifted in 2015. The people will simply not stand for it. They will have three choices: Agree to sit down with Trump and hammer out a new deal, launch a war against the U.S., or face the end of their regime due to a popular uprising. It’s hard to see this working out any other way.

From The New York Times:

The Trump administration said it would restore sanctions on Iran that had been lifted under the 2015 nuclear accord at midnight on Monday, ratcheting up pressure on Tehran while worsening a divide with Europe.

The new sanctions are a consequence of President Trump’s decision in May to withdraw from the nuclear deal with world powers. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Sunday that the goal was to get Iran to change its ways — including ending all nuclear enrichment and curbing its weapons programs, as well as ending its support of brutal governments or uprisings in the Middle East.

The new sanctions bar any transactions with Iran involving dollar bank notes, gold, precious metals, aluminum, steel, commercial passenger aircraft and coal, and they end imports into the United States of Iranian carpets and food stuffs.

They represent one of the few major foreign policy initiatives on which Mr. Trump and the rest of the administration and the Republican Party broadly agree.

In his remarks on Sunday, Secretary Pompeo said the Iranians know very well what the U.S. is expecting.

“We’re very hopeful that we can find a way to move forward, but it’s going to require enormous change on the part of the Iranian regime,” Pompeo said. “They’ve got to behave like a normal country. That’s the ask. It’s pretty simple.”

Behaving like a normal country would be an enormous turnaround for Iran, which spent much of the previous decade defying international decrees demanding that they abandon their nuclear and ballistic missile programs. They have also been the world’s foremost supporters of terrorism, with millions (if not billions) of dollars in aid going to groups like Hezbollah and Hamas.

The renewed sanctions mean that Trump has righted one of the worst wrongs of the Obama years. Unfortunately, not even Trump can get back the billions of dollars that idiot injected into the Iranian economy.
