Published on Jun 6, 2018 by the i24NEWS YouTube channel – THE RUNDOWN | The U.S. has warned its allies against doing business with Iran in an attempt to put more pressure on it to come to the negotiating table. His weapon? Sanctions. Our Dan Raviv has the story.
Sigal Mandelker, the Treasury Undersecretary for Terrorism and Finance Intelligence gave a detailed presentation on what Iran is doing to move money and weapons to Syria, Lebanon, Yemen and elsewhere. She pointed out the key role of the Central Bank of Iran.
Sigal highlighted that Iran “is a regime that uses shell and front companies to conceal its tracks. And all of this to support terrorism, support WMD proliferation and exploiting its own people through corruption and human rights abuses.”
All of this was ignored by Obama’s Iran deal.
Trump understands that the best way to stop Iran is by reimposing economic sanctions. It was the sanctions that were successful in bringing Iran to the negotiating table. Obama’s huge mistake was ending the sanctions without Iran stopping either it’s nuclear program or its terror activities.
