Pompeo Threatens Iran With Strongest Sanctions in History, Speeding U.S. March Toward War



– On Monday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo used his first major policy address to threaten Iran with “the strongest sanctions in history.” Pompeo presented a list of 12 “basic requirements” for a new nuclear treaty with Iran, including “unqualified access” to all nuclear sites and an end to its interventions in Yemen. This comes just under two weeks after the Trump administration withdrew the United States from the Iran nuclear deal. “Pompeo and Bolton have made the choice for the international community much, much easier,” says Trita Parsi, founder and president of the National Iranian American Council. “Either you collaborate with the Trump administration and go along with these sanctions, walk away from this nuclear deal and speed up this march toward war—or you resist.”

  1. The abusive, and unwarranted policies must be addresssd by the world nations. The US leadership have driven the country to an imperialistic, and dare I say, fascist path, and must be put down by the other world powers, otherwise this will spiral to a war to end all of them.

  2. What really sad is a bunch of old fat white douche bags wanna send everyone to their war. For what? Iran is not a threat to the United States. Iran is a threat to Israel, who shouldn’t be considered anything but an apartheid state after this nonsense last week

  3. Europe better learn that the US will welcome a destitute European Union, and will aim at destroying the EU as well as the Middle East that is not allied with the US War Economy.

  4. I thought defeating Hillary would ensure world peace; but the Military Industrial Congressional Complex has prevailed. Now I only wonder if any alliance can destroy this New Nazi Alliance of the US, British Commonwealth, Israel, Egypt and Saudi Arabia. US economy depends on war, weapons, deprivations and death.

  5. America, there are several Countries that are planning to dump the American Petro Dollar because of our BULLYING. The only way to stop this from happening is to have another WAR. (((WE ARE GOING TO WAR WITH SOON)))), but this time, we are not going to WIN!!!

  6. HISBALAH. Freedome FIGHTERS.. total is pusay company. 51% of the Paris gas fields. China will step in. Unless Trump save their jobs at the telecommunication

  7. This piece is irresponsible and revealing of this organization‘s true orientation towards masquerade of propaganda as journalism. If “Democracy Now” can do nothing more than trot out a “Deep State” Globalist to spew the Cabal anti-US administration lies then “Democracy Now” is no better than CNN or MSNBC.
    The rabid “Anti-Trump” foam @ the 👄 is evident.

  8. The Israelis deserve everything they get regarding increased Iranian influence in Syria. They cheerled the disintegration of the country and licked their bloodthirsty lips as the conflict dragged on indefinitely -even giving medical assistance to so-called "rebels". They wanted the complete destruction of the country. Nothing less. And what did they get instead? A resurgent Iran on their doorstep. Fuck Israel.

  9. America is not just threatening Iran they are threatening countries that trade with Iran to either do what America says or face sanctions themselves.
    This is a trade threat to many many countries around the world some of whom are meant to be close allies of USA.
    This is not a great idea or plan or policy whatever you wish to call it.
    It is a unilateral threat "do what we say or else".
    This ain't going to end well but Israel will be happy I guess.

  10. It's a "Regime" if you refuse to let Amerika run your country for you or steal your resources!! And why the hell should anyone make another agreement with the US, when all they fucking do is break their word at every turn??

  11. Proof Iran stands in the way of imperialistic take over of North Africa. She is their China. Why and who is she been fighting for decades? Cuba has made it.

  12. Wow, so many chess pieces available to both sides thus increasing the possibility of a "wrong" move. I hoped that it was only hot air blowing on the dice but apparently that was not the case. EU reaction seems like a "I'm not involved!"; however, this just illustrates that you may be judged by the company you keep and not what one says…imo.

  13. The strongest sanctions in history, the ones that Clinton put over Iraq, killed 1 millions iraqi newborns. They are probably being hyperbolic, but this incredibly inhumane nevertheless.

  14. Although US president is elected by people, it is not indeed a free country. Its president must do what ISRAEL asks to. US is practically a slave country.

  15. Let's see Trump tell Russia and China to stay away from Iran. The Chinese might have to remind Trump how much America owes them. I doubt he can be a deadbeat and treat them like unpaid employees.

  16. If this administration decides to go to war with Iran then I say put Pompeo, Bolton, Trump and all the arms dealers on a speed boat and have them brave the straights of Hormuz and lead the charge.

    It will be fun to watch the EU and other signitories stay in JCPOA and US becomes irrelevant..

    This could be the tipping point where the rest of the world says screw you Uncle Sam?
    America has been fighting all Over the Middle East and it's not Americas back yard as it is Irans.

  18. The US thwarts efforts at peace all over, including Iran, Syria and N Korea. The US is after world domination.

  19. Iran has always proposed a nuclear-free Middle East agreement. Everyone supports such an idea except the US and Israel. America is out of step with world opinion because might makes right.

  20. We have let weapons merchants take over our central banks and our foreign policy. I would like to Wage Peace in every country I can invade. I have developed stealth solar panels, lethal wind turbines, all transported by electric vehicles of all stripes. I call on my God to send a plague of bumblebees to all countries of the world. I would like to train young people to plant imbedded vegetble gardens so that the enemy will have to combat obesity. I hope their are enough Iranian Peace Warriors that are willing to take me on. It will be an epic battle. I can reassure you that it will be a better outcome than "their" Armageddon.

  21. usa should fallow the libya models,by let trump loose in the street and let the population kick is face like kadafi…..

  22. We are the nut bag country with the nukes, not Iran. Hey fuckers – there can't be room for all of you in the bunkers, right? Some of you will have to wander in the post nuclear aftermath with the rest of us slobs, no? I do hope we run into each other…

  23. US can't rule the world any more, Iran is not supported terrorist, Iran has killing ISIS and other group's in Irak, Syria, supported by US, Saudis, Israel, and some EU. Countries. US. Regime govt has been lies for longtime… and now the world It's wo't believe a word… What US. Regime Government said.

  24. A war against Iran will not be the war the U.S. want to fight.
    THE U.S. WILL NOT BE ABLE TO CONFISCATE THEIR WEAPONS LIKE THEY DID TO LIBYA, AND IRAQ PROMISING PEACE ONLY TO ATTACK WITH KNOWLEDGE THEY HAF NO WAY TO DEFEND THEMSELVES AGAINST SUCH AN OVERWHELMING FORCE IN IRAQ AND THE ASSAULTS IN LIBYA.
    We don't see the mutilated bodies of innocent people that's never done anything to deserve this.
    *They wanted one man but Launched a War Against The County Where He Didn't Live And Really Not A Citizen!
    The innocent people of that country suffers AGAIN! THEY CAN'T GET OUT OF WAR!
    Some of the smallest countries in the world.

  25. As an Iranian Armenian, I can say this has nothing to do with Islam, as a christian I hate the US for ruining the middle east!, I prefer these mullahs then any US red neck racist president…americans have ruined so many lives…fuck them…I lost a friend to cancer cause she couldnt get the medicine because of the sanctions…fuck the united states and fuck their stupid people that sit there doing nothing!!!

  26. regime change in Iran is the best solution,,,,,,,since yesterday millions of Iranians workers demonstrating against their regime,,,,,,HUMAN VIOLATION, MASS ARREST, EXECUTIONS, TERROR IN ALL LEVEL, ECONOMIC DISASTER DUE TO SHIITE EXPANSIONISM, IN THE REGION,,,,,,,,12 MILLIONS IRANIANS ARE LIVING ABROAD EITHER REFUGEES OR SELF EXILED,,,,,,,THEREFORE REGIME CHANGE IN IRAN IS THE BEST SOLUTION,,,

  27. Iran, stop building nuclear weapons and allow full UN inspection forever. Then US won't have any excuse to sanction your country, and Iranians will enjoy economic benefits of US economic establishment.
    Removing corrupt religious dictators, stop sponsoring foreign terrorism and allowing freedom for your own people will help your economy too. Iran spends too much money supporting foreign terrorists. Free democratic society is needed if Iran wants successful capitalism to grow.
    This fake news channel won't mention any real issues other than anti American, anti Israel, anti freedom! Almost all communist dictators call themself democratic, what kind of democracy does DemocracyNow want? Democratic Peoples Republic of (North) Korea? Democratic Gaza?
