On Monday, the New YorkTimes published an article that detailed how President Trump’s economic sanctions are not only working against the terror-supporting regime in Iran, but they are crushing their will to fight!
Now, after their latest acts of desperation, where they lobbed missiles at United States troops, the President became even more emboldened and strengthened the sanctions in place, to bone-crushing levels, as the cost of war with the United States is almost too immense to bear for the Iranian government!
In addition to the sanctions, the President’s actions to take out the Iranian terrorist leader and military general, it further placed immense pressure on the regime, as the Iranian people celebrated the evil dictator’s death! In fact, over this past week, the Iranian government bribed their people to come out in a show of grief for the fall of General Soleimani, and they did come out, but not in a show of grief, but in a celebration of support for the President’s decision to take out a man responsible for the death and injury of thousands of Americans, but tens-of-thousands of human souls around the globe!
Top that off with the revelation and admission of the Iranian government that they shot down a Ukrainian passenger plane that was taking off from Iran, and it pushed the population’s anger over the edge, as the Iranian government and its supreme leader, the Khomeini, shifted into damage control!
On Monday, the New York Times published an article that was titled…
“Iran’s Grim Economy Limits Its Willingness to Confront the U.S.”
In the article, they wrote…
Crippling sanctions imposed by the Trump administration have severed Iran’s access to international markets, decimating the economy, which is now contracting at an alarming 9.5 percent annual rate, the International Monetary Fund estimated. Oil exports were effectively zero in December, according to Oxford Economics, as the sanctions have prevented sales, even though smugglers have transported unknown volumes.
The Times went on…
The bleak economy appears to be tempering the willingness of Iran to escalate hostilities with the United States, its leaders cognizant that war could profoundly worsen national fortunes. In recent months, public anger over joblessness, economic anxiety and corruption has emerged as a potentially existential threat to Iran’s hard-line regime.
They added that…
Inflation is running near 40 percent, assailing consumers with sharply rising prices for food and other basic necessities. More than one in four young Iranians is jobless, with college graduates especially short of work, according to the World Bank.
The New York Times concluded that some fear that Iranian hard-liners could push for war as a potential way forward to stimulate the economy, and as a response to the President’s tough stance, but they added that most believe a war…
“would likely weaken the currency and exacerbate inflation, while menacing what remains of national industry.” It could also “threaten a run on domestic banks.”
Ultimately, even though the pro-Marxist left balks at the President’s decision to abandon the ‘Iranian Nuclear Deal’, it exemplifies his genius as a leader, as the Nuclear Deal not only dealt with the rogue terror-supporting regime by using bribery with taxpayer funds, but it included a sunset clause that would have begun to take effect this year. That dangerous clause would have allowed the Iranians to begin re-inforcing their military with new ballistic missiles, battle tanks, and other arms! In addition, in a few short years, it would have allowed them the ability to use the Billions of American dollars that Obama bribed them with to begin building nuclear weapons! Top that onto the fact that Iran is guilty of vast human rights abuses and terrorism, and it creates a frightening scenario for Israel, America, and the world!
In the end, President Trump has left with a very small number of options, as they have to choose between war, which would be further devastating and likely end their government’s power, or give in to the President and his Administration’s demands, which would make the world a much safer place to live in!
