I’ve been wondering what Sheldon Adelson expects to get in return in 2018-2020 for the $55 million he has invested in the midterm elections. He has already gotten Jerusalem, the end of the Iran deal, two missile strikes on Syria and foreign aid being cut off to the Palestinians:
“The Trump administration is to reinstate all US sanctions on Iran removed under the 2015 nuclear deal.
The White House said it was “the toughest sanctions regime ever imposed on Iran” and targeted Iran’s energy, shipping and banking sectors.
However, eight countries will not be penalised by the US for continuing to import Iranian oil.
EU states which backed the deal have said they will protect EU firms doing “legitimate” business with Iran.
President Donald Trump withdrew from the deal in May, describing it as “defective at its core”.
“Sanctions are coming,” he tweeted after Friday’s announcement, referencing the TV series Game of Thrones and its motto “Winter is coming”. …”
Winter is coming, folks.
Neocon Mike Pompeo is now in charge of the State Department. Neocon John Bolton is now National Security Adviser. A few days ago, Trump said he intends to destroy all the enemies of the Jews. Congress has already passed a huge overseas contingency fund war chest.
Do you think Iran is on that list?
