Saudi lap dogs strike again.
Saudi and Qatari, yes. But not to forget Israel.
Will this hurt any country but the US?
Will this hurt any country but the US?Yes, it will hurt the Iranian people. The idea behind sanctions is to make life so bad in a country that it revolts and replaces the government with a US-friendly to lift the sanctions.Sanctions are a form of war.
People in the west seem to think that Iran's civilian nuclear programme isn't popular amongst Iranians, but this isn't so. Even the most vehement anti-Mullah Iranian is extremely supportive. It's one of the few things that unites all Iranians. No matter who's in charge, there will be a civilian programme of sorts. The programme may have been scaled back to next to nothing, but Washington wants regime change and will use any excuse to get it. And if they get it, the nuclear programme will be up and running again. The only faction who can enforce the nuclear deal are the Mullahs. So take your pick.
The other countries that are party to this deal can ignore that. A House resolution is meaningless other than showcase. France and Germany want to buy from and sell to Iran.
