Trump extends sanctions to Iran’s central bank

US President Donald Trump said on Friday he had imposed sanctions in Iran’s central bank. “This is very big,” Treasury Secretary Mnuchin said. “We’ve now cut off all sources of funds to Iran.” In Tehran, General Yahya Rahim-Safavi, a senior adviser to Iran’s supreme leader, warned “If the Americans think of any plots, the Iranian nation will respond from the Mediterranean to the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean.”

    I think of a good 3 weeks bombing of Iran, but with no plotting at all.
    Why irritate a supreme leader with plots?
    Just clean nice proper bombing, that’s all.

    That will hurt Iran and I’m not sure the EU will bail them out this time after the attack on SA. Every time the Ayatoolhead does something stupid, he buries his country deeper into it’s hole, and you can’t fix stupid.

    The Iranians firmly decided to get into their own loop.
    It is impossible for them to wish for the “best”.
    1 Saudi Arabia is “forced” to modernize its oil refining facilities with the help of the United States and Israel.
    And increase production.
    2 Saudi Arabia makes the most profit from rising barrels of oil due to terrorism.
    3 US sanctions against Iranian economy disaster for Iran. Ayatollahs will never allow their slaves to live freely.
    4 Iran’s actions, direct and indirect support for President Trump’s policies to increase energy production within America. Wonderful. Shine.
    5 If the political situation in the United States allows President Trump to send US troops to Saudi Arabia, that will be so.
    Against the re-election and the work of Trump: China, the EU, the Middle and Democratic (probably more precisely communist) party of the United States.
    6 For Israel, with its completely paralysed stupidity, careerism by the Government / Paraguans – a terrorist act of Iran against the interests of the United States – such help is very useful.

    Who cares. No effect. Not even news.

    Trump was screaming and mouthing odd about SANCTIONS on every single nation on this planet for three years and the World Just Laughed. No more ‘SLAPPING SANCTIONS’. Just a quiet tweet on some banking fantasy scenario’.

    LOL!!!!
