Emboldened by the EU’s anti- pressure rhetoric on the unreformable, warmongering the uber-international terror sponsoring Islamist fascist rulers of Iran, for months the usual lovelies have been saying U.S.sanctions will not amount to much.
The lovelies have been cherry-picking the sanction news, over estimating the value of temporary wavers and such, and, intentionally skipping over the news of actions and events that really count in financially suffocating the Islamist fascists’ criminalities including money laundering, warmongering and terror sponsoring, all facilitated by selling oil/gas and having access to the international banking system.
U.S. Treasury Secretary Mnuchin:
“I understand that SWIFT will be discontinuing service to the Central Bank of Iran and designated Iranian financial institutions. SWIFT is making the right decision to protect the integrity of the international financial system.”
And this informative reaction by Mark Dubowitz, the chief executive of FDD:
“This will reduce their options to barter trade or sanctions busting. Treasury however has left open humanitarian channels that the regime should use to deliver food, medicine and other goods to the Iranian people."
In other words; bad news for lovelies, good news for Iranians, despite what Islamist fascists, their lobbyist like NIAC and the usual lefty lovelies’ claim, there is access to banking system for legitimate needs including food, medicine, however, SWIFT will no longer be used as a conduit and facilitator of warmongering, terror and theft of Iranian people’s national assets.
Airtight sanctions - which includes oil - a la against the despicable South Africa apartheid, works. U.S.lawmakers get to it.
