Beyond sanctions, how the U.S. can pressure Iran

Instead, we should be asking WHY the US should pressure Iran.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo last week delivered a powerful speech that essentially defined U.S. policy objectives toward Iran by three noes: no nuclear program, no regional terrorism and aggression, and no domestic oppression.

I'm still waiting for a US 3 noes policy for Israel: no nuclear program, no regional terrorism and aggression, and no domestic oppression. Funny how Israel and US are actually doing everything they are accusing Iran of.

Ah, that explains everything.

America is the LAST country that can criticize "aggression" and "domestic oppression." "Don't do as I do, do as I say."
