US, Israel To Stoke Internal Pressure On Iran
The United States and Israel have established a joint task force intended to turn up the heat on the Iranian regime, which is already experiencing internal dissent due to a faltering economy and water shortages. Due to President Trump’s decision to withdraw the US from the disastrous JCPOA, and accompanying re-imposition of sanctions, the value of the Iranian currency has plunged nearly 50% this year. And because the mullahs spend the people’s money financing terrorism in foreign lands, instead of taking care of such simple things as ample drinking water, many citizens of Iran are ready for change.
While Europe is doing everything in its powers to save the JCPOA, and give the mullahs a lifeline, they are missing an opportunity to enable real change in the behavior of the Islamic Republic. If EU leaders decide to abide by US sanctions, without slickly sidestepping them with “private deals”, the Iranian economy would come to a grinding halt, adding significant pressure on the regime. The EU is placing the value of short term corporate profits above the lives of tens of millions of oppressed Iranians. What should worry them more, is the toothless JCPOA they are trying to salvage, allows Iran to acquire nuclear weapons to threaten their own citizens with.
While the US and Israel are attempting to improve the lives of the Iranian people, the EU is scrambling to keep the repressive, genocidal regime in place.
