Trump terminates Iran appeasement, targets Rev Guards

US President Donald Trump unveiled a new US strategy for Iran, while outlining the Islamic Republic’s 38-year record of violence since its 1979 coup.  He listed the massacres of Americans its proxies perpetrated in Beirut in the 1980s, support for such terrorist groups as Al Qaeda (after 9/ll) and  Hizballah and fomenting vicious civil wars in Yemen and Syria that destabilized the Middle East.

Trump then listed some of the measures he had approved:

  1.  Action to counter Iran’s destabilizing operations in the Mid-East and outside.
  2.  New sanctions to block financial revenue which serves to fund its nuclear and
    ballistic missile programs. The $100 billion Tehran received in sanctions relief
    for  signing the nuclear deal – Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) – in 2015
    was  spent on those activities.
  3. The United States will prevent Iran from conducting ballistic missile tests a         further developing its ICBM program.
  4. Iran would not be allowed to continue its threat to international navigation in the Red Sea and Gulf of Aqaba.
  5. Tougher sanctions for the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), “the corrupt arm of the supreme leader, which has hijacked Iran’s financial assets to foment terror and supply proxies with weapons.” Those further sanctions will apply to the entire IRGC, which controls one-third of Iran’s national economy, including its oil industry and its nuclear program, as well as its agents and the terrorist proxies it runs. He urged US allies to join in this step.
  6.  International inspections of Iran’s compliance would be tightened. Among Iran’s direct violations of the accord, Trump cited production in excess of 130 metric tons of heavy water, failure to meet commitments on advanced centrifuges, and “intimidating international nuclear inspectors,” who were not allowed to visit military sites suspected of clandestine nuclear weapons activities. He also ordered a review by US intelligence of Iran’s dealings with North Korea.

All these measures and sanctions are potentially capable of shaking the ayatollahs regime to its military and political foundations.
In his speech, Trump announced he would not re-certify Iran’s compliance with the JCPOA, because of its many flaws. He also left himself free to end US participation in the accord if those flaws were not addressed. He called on Congress to step in to correct those flaws and on American allies for cooperation.

However, DEBKAfile’s sources report that he can’t count on the cooperation of either congress or European governments, who announced their objections in advance to the new course he has charted against Iran. He may be left with no option but to deal with the campaign of sanctions against the Revolutionary Guards by presidential directives.

Sensing which way the wind was blowing, Iranian officials trumpeted almost daily threats of dire consequences if President Trump laid a finger on the Revolutionary Guards. IRGC chief Gen. Ali Jafari warned that if the Guards were targeted, they would treat the US armed forces as an enemy on a par with the Islamic State.

Military sources in Iran have stressed to DEBKA file that the regime would not let the Trump speech pass without a response – and not just by words, but by deeds, in three spheres:

a) Diplomatic measures to be formulated in the coming hours. They could include enlisting Russia, China and the European Union for international condemnation of the United States.
b) Military steps against American and allied military and civilian targets in the Persian Gulf and Middle East, which will be entrusted to the Guards agents themselves in the Gulf and surrogates like Hizballah and Yemen’s Houthi insurgents.
c) Supply of strategic weaponry, such as long-range missiles to pro-Iranian proxies.

    Now, I hope the American people wakes up and see that US Government has been jihacked by traitors and dual-citizens…It’s up to every American patriot to fight to take the country back or live on their knees.

        They won’t wake up though, they can’t. Being an American I know this all too well. There is no hope anymore. America is done for, its citizens will soon starve en mass.

          I’m an American too and that is nonsense. You should see someone about that.

      no name : you are an agent for a foreign hostile country and its terrorist proxies,therefore you are suspected of being a terrorist

    • Oct 14, 2017 @ 16:59 at 16:59

      Han’s, if you are an American, why are you siding with the Iranian regime that leads Death to America chants? Obviously your loyalties are to iran. I am so tired of Iranian and Russian shills on these message boards pretending to Patriots. America First.

        Because America deserves it. Turn off Fox News and recognize the Satan-run Imperialists your country has become – Faggot

          Thank you for revealing the creep you are. You homophobe, Khameini-loving, anti-American troll.

    Good death to iran

    • Oct 14, 2017 @ 1:32 at 1:32

      Perhaps a sane and prosperous Iran would be the viable alternative to “death”. Iranian people would sooner abandon their presently tyrannical leadership if our country consistently signaled its’ political and practical support…as previous administrations did not…and our President began that process today. But, don’t put too much faith in European support, where the majority once believed you “could do business with Mr.Hitler”.

        your exactly one of the reasons the world is conflict……you are so stupid and brainwashed buy ZIONIST EXTREMISTS it is not funny anymore……..911 you will pay dearly for, the motion has started……get your sorry ass out of Israel…

      As a French , I noticed an error in your pseudo. Everybody here knows it should be “Fuck the Greeks”… but, well, we all know that americans are poor in geography. Who would blame you when you need to visit 28 countries (+ Switzerland) in order to say : I went thru Europe !!

  • Oct 14, 2017 @ 2:38 at 2:38

    Maybe its time Debka step up to the plate and start publishing “public” evidence instead of nameless sources. Let’s see MEK’s actual report documenting Iranian violations. Show readers the tangible evidence of the Iranian-North Korean “partnership”. Publish the actual terms of the agreement regarding inspection. Given the terrible reporting by mainstream media, why can Debka be an example of journalistic investigation? If you are afraid. then why not pass the information on to Breitbart? The clock is running.

  • Oct 14, 2017 @ 3:30 at 3:30

    So about point 4, “Iran won’t be a threat to shipping”. They will always be a threat to shipping because of geography, is Trump asking that Iran physically move their country somewhere else?

    Iran has closely worked with N. Korea’s nuclear missile program. So we know where President Obama’s “Iran Deal” is leading us. And we know the consequences – nuclear Armageddon in the mid-east. We can fully expect Europe, China and Russia to see Iran as a “trading partner” – not another North Korea. Odds are increasing that one day we’ll see nuclear tipped missiles lifting off Iranian territory triggering an overpowering response. And Europe, China and Russia will then say “So Sad”. There is no cure for inept and uncaring political leadership. No doubt after the nuclear Armageddon in the mid-east the Nobel Committee will give former President Obama another “Peace Prize’ for his Iran Deal. And why not. He will have “earned it”.

    Obama was a curse upon the US and western civilization. He hated both. God bless Trump for undoing as much of Obama’s evil as he can. Iran is militaristic and expansionist as Islam has always been. Containing Iran will lead to their destruction as Islamic ideology is unproductive, uncreative, static and handles succession (transfer of power) very poorly.

  • Oct 14, 2017 @ 17:42 at 17:42

    It’s time to nuke Iran and North Korea before they nuke the USA.

    PDRK on one side and the Persian Empire (wannabe) on the other… Fortress America in the middle.

    As General Mc Auliffe said in Bastogne: “The Poor Bastards Have Got Us Surrounded”

  • Oct 14, 2017 @ 21:16 at 21:16

    The Russians and the Iranians have one thing in common. Expansion. For more than 300 yearsThe Russians dreamt “The hot waters of the Mediterranean Sea”. The dream of every governing Islamic fanatic is to become
    Cyrus the Great. The Persian Empire spanned from Indus River in the east to Mesopotamia -Egypt in the west
    and today’ s Turkey in the north. ( Including Iraq-Yemen-Syria -Lebanon-Jordan and israel of today!!).
    Mankind will produce a modern Alexander the Great that will keep the Iranians for another 2500 years living in
    their country in peace.

    We will soon know if the US have the resolve to stand up to Iran, as the Peshmerga ‘deadline to leave Kirkuk’ passes.

  • Oct 18, 2017 @ 8:55 at 8:55

    Everyone confirmed Iran is in compliance 100%. So where you get all those info saying otherwise and tell us where did Iranian guards today support terrorists while they are killing terrorists while you guys supply them with weapons

    Very confusing
