BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:00 A.M.) – US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stated that US will impose the “strongest sanctions” in history on Iran if it fails to comply with a list of US demands, during a briefing in Washington D.C. on Monday.

Pompeo said the US will apply “unprecedented financial pressure” on Iran and Tehran will “be battling to keep its economy alive” if it does not comply with a list of 12 US demands.

Full transcript:

SOT, Mike Pompeo, US Secretary of State: “The sting of sanctions will be painful if the regime does not change its course from the unacceptable and unproductive path it has chosen to one that rejoins the ‘league of nations.’ These will indeed end up being the strongest sanctions in the history when we are complete. The regime has been fighting all over the Middle East for years. After our sanctions are coming forth, it will be battling to keep its economy alive.”*NO CUTAWAY AT SOURCE*

SOT, Mike Pompeo, US Secretary of State: “We will apply unprecedented financial pressure on the Iranian regime. The leaders in Tehran will have no doubt about our seriousness. Thanks to the colleagues of our Department of Treasury, sanctions are going back into full effect and new ones are coming.” *NO CUTAWAY AT SOURCE*

SOT, Mike Pompeo, US Secretary of State: “We will also ensure Iran has no path to a nuclear weapon. Not now, not ever.” *NO CUTAWAY AT SOURCE*

SOT, Mike Pompeo, US Secretary of State: “President Trump withdrew from the deal for a simple reason: it failed to guarantee the safety of the American people from the risks created by the leaders of the Islamic Republic of Iran. No more. No more wealth creation for Iranian kleptocrats, no more acceptance of Iranian missiles in Riyadh and the Golan Heights, no more cost-free expansion of Iranian power, no more. The JCPOA put the world at risk because of its flaws.” *NO CUTAWAY AT SOURCE*

SOT, Mike Pompeo, US Secretary of State: “The bet that the JCPOA would increase Middle East stability was a bad one for America, for Europe, for the Middle East and indeed for the entire world. It is clear that the JCPOA has not ended Iran’s nuclear ambitions, nor did it deter its quest for regional hegemony. Iran’s leaders saw the deal as a starting gun for the march across the Middle East.” *NO CUTAWAY AT SOURCE*

The bullyboy Yanks underestimate the Iranians. During the Iran Iraq war they suffered circa 300,000 killed soldiers and about 700,000 wounded.

The US backed Iraqi forces used all sorts of chemical weapons as well that were supplied by the US and the UK.

The Iranian people did not give in then and they will not give in now.

Except that Saddam was into making Chemical Ali to become governor of Tehran… In other terms, take the country. Pompeo consider economic asphyxia… While Iran had 71.4% inflation in one year and hunger riots not long ago… If the Yanks consider a military action, they would demolish the infrastructure for sure. “The Iranian people did not give in then and they will not give in now.” => The Iranian people hates the mullahs, they even end mourning the Shah’s regime, they’re VERY irreligious and have enough of being led by bigots… Never head about how mosques are desperately empty?

I agree with you DBS. Iran is right now in a cusp of civilization. Islamic revolution has changed Iran from the late 70s. Many young Iranians (men and women) believe the Mullahs have hijacked Iran & totally enslaved the Iranians. They want total freedom and are tired of the absolute control the Mullahs are having on the people and enforcing the stifling strong islamic sharia laws which give very little room for the younger generation who want to use modern day gadgets and social networking and enjoy life with freedom. People in the last 30+ years have been brain washed… Read more »

@Daeshbags Sux, Entente hunger blockade and the bombing of WW I and WW II respectively has had a unifying effect on the Axis populations. It will have the same effect on Iran – no matter whether the urban elites are religious or not. The massive majority are religious. You are mixing up the public and published opinion of the elites.

p.s. Still no reason to vote You don without arguments.

? Approximately 1,000,000 Iranians died and between 250-500,000 died in the conflict.

The US actually caused the war and at first backed both sides.

Anyway, now they are together, so game on Yankers.

Hehehehe

@FlorianGeyer, the Anglos are not speaking of military war but of economic war. And that can be just as deadly.

p.s. During WW II, after the Germans took Greece in a few weeks the Anglos (UK in this case) stopped food trade and shipments to Greece. This caused a famine that killed about 8 to 10% of the population and goaded the Greeks into and guerilla war because they though it was the Germans’ fault.

@ranix, the US are neither losers nor at the verge… They know their economic (about 25% of world’s GDP) and also military power – so they think might goes before right. And they break international law constantly. p.s. You can only oppose the liberties the US are taking when You forge an alliance that has more economic clout than they. Until then You are weaker and they can sanction You. If You get for example China, Russia and the EU into Your boat – You can sanction the US in return because then You control more than 50% of world’s… Read more »

Irran’s currency crisis could bring it one step closer to economic collapse. Irranians are scrambling for Amrikan dollars as Irran’s currency, the rial, plummets to historic lows amid economic and political uncertainty. The rial has lost one-third of its value this year alone and is now 60,000 to the dollar. When Iranian President Haassan Roouhani took power in 2013 a dollar bought 36,000 rials. During 1979 Islamic Revolution one dollar bought 70 rials. We can see the inflation. To stem this mounting panic, Tehrran announced this week that it was setting the official exchange rate at 42,000 rials to the… Read more »

The most demonized religions by the world powers and zionists are Catholicism, christians Orthodox and the heretics of Islam the Shiism, while the Sunni Islam, Judaism and Protestantism are the most glorified religions of the world by the world powers and zionists. Why ?

The evil sides are demonstrating themselves.

Not because they are evil but because they are into work & frugality and have money. So they control MSM – easy to explain.

You have a wrong attitude about money and work.
