[Editor’s note: Israeli asset Bolton is not acting on behalf of the USA, with the best interests of the American people in mind; rather, he is doing what Israel tells him to do. If he is allowed to continue, the end result is most likely to be a war with Iran that will see vast numbers of American casualties while the Israelis sit on the beaches of the Mediterranean tanning their fat, pasty white European hides, content that their Yankee mercenaries are doing the fighting (and dying) for them, just as in Iraq, Syria and a dozen other places.

U.S. to Step up Sanctions on Iran, ‘Squeeze Them Until the Pips Squeak’

The United States will step up enforcement of sanctions on Iran, national security adviser John Bolton said on Tuesday, as Tehran tries to find ways to evade the restrictions in oil trade and in banking.

“The objective has been from the beginning to get oil exports from Iran down to zero,” Bolton said.

“It is our intention to squeeze them very hard. As the British say: ‘Squeeze them until the pips squeak’.”

The United States announced reinstatement of sanctions earlier this month as the Trump administration tries to force Iran to curb its nuclear and missile programs as well as its support for proxy forces in Yemen, Syria, Lebanon and others in the Middle East.

Eight importing countries have been given temporary exemptions by the United States to keep buying Iranian oil when it reimposed sanctions, prompting Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to say the Washington would not be able to cut Iran’s oil exports to zero.

Bolton also said the United States will let an investigation by Saudi Arabia’s public prosecutor to run through on the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Khashoggi, a critic of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, was killed last month at the kingdom’s Istanbul consulate by a team sent from Riyadh.

The kingdom’s public prosecutor Saud al-Mojeb later said Khashoggi was killed in a premeditated attack, but his body has not been found.


U.S. President Donald Trump remains prepared to hold a second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Bolton said. The comments came after the release of a report detailing undeclared missile sites in the North that had been undergoing maintenance.

Bolton was speaking to reporters in Singapore on the sidelines of meetings this week between the ten-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and external partners, including the United States and China.

  1. By now everyone should know that the United States of Israel seeks regime change in Iran and that neither Russia nor Iran will lay down like door mats

  2. NOTHING GOOD THIS WAY COMES

    How much have the Saudis paid the rabid pack of “Sick ’em Dogs” in Washington to unleash their mangy Ameri’canine’ curs of ISIS and Al Quaeda and other rag-tag hounds with the slobbering, salivating and pendulous flews peculiar to starving hyenas and jackals to attack Iran?

    Bolton’s head is so far up Bibi’s ass (abandon hope all ye who enter here) he can see Trump ahead of him – sent on orders of Ben Salman to raise the ante against Iran, maneuver through a slew of malignant or benign polyps nibbling on embedded carrots and radishes in the folded lining of Bibi’s malodorous gut – a sucker for the scrapings of Sukkot and all things Israel … and, oh yes, lots and lots of Saudi riyals. Cash on the barrel-head containing Khashoggi’s bones.

    And Bolton, the pipsqueak, like his pipsqueak master, another cursed Faust in a lost cause with the Devil. Nothing good this way comes. Ever!

  3. It is difficult to know who;s side Bolton is on, given he sometimes travels on a foreign passport, I guess an American passport s not good enough for him.
