As the world—minus ۳ or ۲ panicked cohorts—was breathing a sigh of relief over ouster of #B_Team's henchman in the White House, Pompeo & Mnuchin declared further escalation of #EconomicTerrorism against Iran.
Thirst for war—maximum pressure—should go with the warmonger-in-chief.
#OFAC is nothing more than a JAIL WARDEN:
Ask for reprieve (waiver), get thrown in solitary for the audacity. Ask again and you might end up in the gallows
The only way to mitigate US #EconomicTerrorism (sanctions) is to decide to finally free yourself from the hangman’s noose.
Having failed to accomplish its objectives through its #EconomicTerrorism—including depriving cancer patients of medicine— the US attempted to abuse the legal system to steal our property on the high seas.
This piracy attempt is indicative of Trump admin's contempt for the law.
۷۴ yrs after US became first & ONLY regime to deploy a nuclear weapon—on a city, designed to maximize casualties—it is STILL targeting civilians. This time, with #EconomicTerrorism, violating a historic nuclear deal & punishing those who seek to adhere to it.
The US has imposed additional «punishments» on Russia, in its serial bouts of #EconomicTerrorism.
It appears that @SecPompeo's paranoia about «Great Powers» is becoming a true phobia.
Wake up: The era of «Great Powers» is long past.
@SecPompeo will then have to explain why he—& his boss:
Call Iran a terrorist nation;
Distort historical name of PERSIAN GULF to grovel to client regimes;
Distort even the BIBLE to kowtow to a #B_Team member;
Employ #EconomicTerrorism against entire Iranian people; and …
In Managua, I offered congratulations to the people & government of #Nicaragua on the ۴۰th anniversary of their revolution.
Iran & Nicaragua have both resisted US' #EconomicTerrorism & aggressive interventions.
We've agreed on wide-ranging cooperation between our two nations.
US #EconomicTerrorism is a global menace.
I'm in Venezuela to attend #NAM meeting geared to forge global response to unilateralism.
In Iran’s engagement with the world, we neither call for the ouster of leaders, nor «bolster» them—decisions that are for the PEOPLE of a nation.
Amb. Ravanchi’s interview with @BBCBarbaraPlett : Iran’s new steps under #JCPOA, the region, the US #EconomicTerrorism against #Iran, the Tanker near Gibraltar, &..watch first part July ۱۰th @ ۷ am ET from @BBCWorld & longer part @۲ pm @BBCAMERICA
Today, Iran is taking its second round of remedial steps under Para ۳۶ of the JCPOA. We reserve the right to continue to exercise legal remedies within JCPOA to protect our interests in the face of US #EconomicTerrorism. All such steps are reversible only through E۳ compliance.
To Mr. Brian Hook,
Are you referring to the years of «#EconomicTerrorism & war», and violating commitments and #UNSCR as «diplomacy»?! Iranians will meet diplomacy with diplomacy, respect with respect and war with zealous defense.
With Pres. @HassanRouhani at #SCO in Kyrgyzstan. Important multilateral dialogue + fruitful bilateral talks incl. w/ President Xi & President Putin.
Unilateral US actions—incl. its #EconomicTerrorism on Iran—are solely responsible for insecurity & renewed tension in our region.
That the US immediately jumped to make allegations against Iran—w/o a shred of factual or circumstantial evidence—only makes it abundantly clear that the #B_Team is moving to a #PlanB: Sabotage diplomacy—including by @AbeShinzo—and cover up its #EconomicTerrorism against Iran.
Ayatollah @khamenei_ir long ago said we're not seeking nuclear weapons—by issuing a fatwa (edict) banning them.
#B_Team's #EconomicTerrorism is hurting the Iranian people & causing tension in the region. Actions—not words—will show whether or not that's @realDonaldTrump's intent
Today the world's catching on to @AmbJohnBolton’s chronic warmongering. But Iranians didn’t need to read a ۱۰,۰۰۰ word @NewYorker profile to be convinced: we've seen him shill for a cult terror group, and—along with his #B_Team accomplices—target Iranians with #EconomicTerrorism.
FIGHTING TO THE LAST US SOLDIER
Same #B_Team which a) provided most ۹/۱۱ terrorists & b) pushed the US into the Afghan/Iraq quagmires is now plotting war thru #EconomicTerrorism on Iranians who held a candlelight vigil as WTC was on fire
No wonder ۹/۱۱ still haunts @SecPompeo.
#US#EconomicTerrorism against Cuba, China, Russia, Syria, Iran & … deliberately target civilians, trying to achieve illegitimate political objectives through intimidation of innocent people. US rouge behavior now includes piracy, bribery & blackmail
We salute Cuba & stand w/it
Don't take it just from me: https://foreignpolicy.com/۲۰۱۹/۰۸/۱۴/u-s-sanctions-are-killing-cancer-patients-in-iran/ … illustrates one impact of the Trump administration's #EconomicTerrorism on Iranians؛ from those directly involved in producing medicine for cancer patients.
Insecurity in the Persian Gulf is caused mainly by US intervention & its #EconomicTerrorism on Iranians.
Adding foreign naval fleets in this narrow & crowded tinderbox only increases risk of combustion.
If US wants maritime security, it should stop its destabilizing behavior.
I noted the repeated statements by @SecPompeo that Iran must change its policies in order for Iranians to eat is pure #EconomicTerrorism.
Tying bread & medicine to politics is to kill & starve people into submission. Iranians will never capitulate.
As Iran's regional dialog & non-aggression pact advance, #B_Team shrinks.
US should stop isolating itself & adapt to new global realities.
Int'l commerce & power are shifting: neither #EconomicTerrorism against China & Iran nor exiting #INFTreaty with Russia will reverse that.
Very pleased to host my distinguished friend Yousuf bin Alawi bin Abdullah, Oman’s FM, in Tehran today.
Discussed effects of the US’ #EconomicTerrorism on Iran; bilateral relations, regional developments & security in the Persian Gulf, the Strait of Hormuz and the Gulf of Oman.
Today at NAM mtg on sanctions I said, «Terrorism is use of violence & intimidation against civilians in pursuit of political aims.»
The US is thus engaged in #EconomicTerrorism. It cannot be called «sanctions», as they're not designed to enforce laws. They in fact violate law.
Unlike the piracy in the Strait of Gibraltar, our action in the Persian Gulf is to uphold int'l maritime rules.
As I said in NY, it is IRAN that guarantees the security of the Persian Gulf & the Strait of Hormuz.
UK must cease being an accessory to #EconomicTerrorism of the US.
#B_Team sold @realDonaldTrump on the folly that killing #JCPOA thru #EconomicTerrorism can get him a better deal.
As it becomes increasingly clear that there won’t be a better deal, they're bizarrely urging Iran's full compliance.
There's a way out, but not with #B_Team in charge
More evidence—including encroachment of a MQ۹ spy drone on ۵/۲۶, speedboat purchases & phone calls planning to attribute ship attacks to Iran—indicate #B_Team was moments away from trapping @realDonaldTrump into a war. Prudence prevented it, but #EconomicTerrorism brings tension.
The US wages #EconomicTerrorism on Iran, has conducted covert action against us & now encroaches on our territory.
We don't seek war, but will zealously defend our skies, land & waters.
We'll take this new aggression to #UN & show that the US is lying about international waters
Some misinterpretations necessitate a clarification: #B_Team is sabotaging diplomacy (including important and constructive visit of PM @AbeShinzo) and covering up #EconomicTerrorism by the U.S. against Iran.
#EconomicTerrorism against Iran targets innocent civilians. Like this little boy, whose heartbroken mother can't get him prosthetic legs as he grows. They're sanctioned.
This is @realDonaldTrump's «economic war». And war and talks—with or without preconditions—don't go together
Goaded by #B_Team, @realdonaldTrump hopes to achieve what Alexander, Genghis & other aggressors failed to do. Iranians have stood tall for millennia while aggressors all gone. #EconomicTerrorism & genocidal taunts won't «end Iran».
#NeverThreatenAnIranian. Try respect—it works!
While @AmbJohnBolton and the #B_Team say the Iranian people «deserve better», they’ve admitted to targeting them with #EconomicTerrorism—and even war— in a delusional pursuit of «regime-change».
But will @realDonaldTrump let them realize their dreams of another #ForeverWar?
