Mike Pompeo threatens Iran with ‘strongest sanctions in history,’ outlines new nuclear demands

(Worthy News) - Saying the 2015 Iran nuclear deal negotiated by the Obama administration had “fatal flaws,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday announced that the Trump administration was preparing “the strongest sanctions in history” if Tehran does not change its destabilizing ways and forever abandon its drive for nuclear weapons.

Unveiling the promised Plan B after President Trump defied America’s European allies and took the U.S. out of the pact this month, Mr. Pompeo listed 12 pointed demands on Tehran that the Islamic republic immediately and heatedly rejected.

The list called on Iran to stop all nuclear programs “in perpetuity” and reveal all of its past programs to obtain a nuclear bomb; to provide “unqualified access” for international inspectors to any suspect site inside Iran, including military bases; to halt the development of nuclear-capable missiles; to release all American and allied citizens held in Iran; and to halt a broad range of destabilizing moves throughout the Middle East, including Iran’s military support of Syria and its backing of proxy forces such as Hezbollah in Lebanon and the Houthi rebel forces in Yemen.

  1. And since Pompeo knows that Iran will not agree to such constraints, this sets up the next step in Pompeo's plan, which is to move militarily against Iran. But Europe won't agree with this, so this will end up as a confrontation between the U.S. and the E.U. Which the U.S. really doesn't want ....... SO, all these demands by Pompeo are really positioning and grandstanding.
