US warns Iran of ‘strongest sanctions in history’
Note how easily Pompeo did away with Iran’s right to civilian nuclear power, simply by adding it to his demands list of what Iran had to give up to avoid new sanctions. He did this with no legitimate legal basis whatsoever.
His feigned concern for the common people of Iran, however, did not extend to the Yemenis or Syrians who have been devastated by the US Coalition proxy terror war. All the nasty things that Pompeo charged Iran with yesterday, he knew as former CIA director that it was the US who has been doing it all.
I cannot think of a quicker way to undermine any credibility he planned to have as Secretary of State than his ridiculous and vainglorious performance yesterday, and hence my satirical framing him as a Roman Emperor as Pompeo the Pompous.
We now have to see how much opposition to this insanity percolates up from the heartland to hook up with those in the Obama administration who invested years of public service into hammering out a difficult but fruitful resolution in the JCPOA … Jim W. Dean ]
