Iran remained defiant Monday as the re-imposition of sanctions took hold in the Islamic Republic.

Iranian state television aired footage of defense drills taking place in the country's north through Tuesday as President Hassan Rouhani said the nation faces a “war situation” against a “bullying enemy.” 

The sanctions, re-imposed by President Donald Trump earlier this year, will end all the economic benefits America granted Tehran for its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers. The deal limited Iran’s enrichment of uranium.

The re-imposition comes as Trump and Congress focus on congressional and gubernatorial elections in the U.S. Many will see the results as a major triumph for the president, or a political blow. Reuters pointed out that Trump campaigned in Chattanooga, Tenn., and he called the sanctions an effective strategy.

Iran is a much different country than it was when I took office,” Trump said.  “They wanted to take over the whole Middle East. Right now they just want to survive.”

The new American sanctions take aim at Iran's vital oil industry -- a crucial source for its weak economy. Its national currency has plummeted over the last year amid an economic crisis. Prices for everything from mobile phones to medicine have skyrocketed.

 

 

Iran’s national currency, the rial, now trades at 145,000 to one U.S. dollar -- down from 40,500 to $1 a year ago. The economic chaos sparked mass anti-government protests at the end of last year which resulted in nearly 5,000 reported arrests and at least 25 people being killed.

Rouhani insisted on state TV that Iran will “sell its oil and it will sell” despite the crippling sanctions.

“We are in the economic war situation,” he said. “We are confronting a bullying enemy. We have to stand to win.”

The United States has said the sanctions are aimed at dissuading Iran from its support of regional militant groups and its development of long-range ballistic missiles.

    Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) Imports “Refugees” to White Countries, Even from Israel
    TNO STAFF — NOVEMBER 1, 2018 0 COMMENT
    The Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) organization—targeted by the Pittsburgh synagogue shooter Robert Bowers—works full time to bring fake refugees to America and Europe, while at the same time helping to expel them from Israel and ship them to white countries, a review of that organization’s activities shows.

    "As for Christianity, there is a dispute among Halachic authorities, but the vast majority consider it idolatry as well. Islam, on the other hand, is not considered idolatry."
    Read that last bit again, very slowly, so the christianzionists can keep up: "Islam, on the other hand, is not considered idolatry."
    Islam is Judaism for DUMMIES. Islam is Judaism LITE. But they are both fundamentally Tribal and both believe the old Us against You ............

    America, the "MASTERBLASTER" from the movie "Thunderdome" a giant moron ridden on and directed by Twisted Jewish Dwarves ........
    Where are the sanctions on Israel ???
    In 2012 the Obama administration promulgated a gag order in the form of a secrecy classification guideline – WNP-136 (PDF) – banning all federal agency employees and contractors from discussing, writing about, or releasing government information about Israel’s nuclear weapons program. https://original.antiwar.com/smith-grant/2018/08/09/can-the-us-keep-lying-about-israels-nukes/
    ----------------------------------------------------
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSIpAPWEJFI National Press Club 2/27/2017 Senator Chuck Schumer admits to journalist Sam Husseini that Israel has nuclear weapons. Under the Arms Export Control Act, the U.S. may not provide foreign aid to countries outside the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) absent waivers and sanctions. Despite Israel's status outside the NPT congress passes multi-billion dollar aid packages every year, which the president signs into law. Transcript follows: CH = Chuck Schumer, SH = Sam Husseini
    -------------------------------------------------
    under the Symington Amendment to the Foreign Appropriations Act and the Glenn Act, it is illegal for the US Government to send our tax money to any nation in possession of nuclear weapons technology that refuses to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty or allow IAEA inspections.
    Symington Amendment: Since 1976, every single penny of "aid" to Israel money has been illegal; a crime committed by the US Government against the American people. all that money the US sends to Israel is a CRIME AGAINST THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
    --------------------------------------------------
    The World should insist Israel live by the standards Israel demands of others. Be judged as Ye judge others. If Israel wants to be recognized, Israel must recognize the EQUALITY and HUMANITY of ALL People. Quit calling NON-Jews SHISKA, GOYIM, GENTILE. If Israel wants Hamas to 'repudiate' their charter, Israel must REPUDIATE their manual of hate, the TORAH, which openly proclaims that all 'gentiles' should be 'Hewers of wood, and bearers of water' ........ for Israel.
    Israel must recognize the Native People's RIGHT to a Palestinian state.
    Israel REFUSES to sign the Non Proliferation Treaty or open It's NUKES to inspection, Israel should have the exact same sanctions that were put on Iran

    Iran was making medicines with its nuclear facility, it was competing with Israel in this. That was stopped. Importation of medicines was blocked too.
