Trump threatens Iran with sanctions so intercontinental missiles can never be made

Trump made the announcement in a speech that detailed a more confrontational approach to Iran over its nuclear and ballistic missile programs and its support for extremist groups in the Middle East.

He said: ‘Today I am announcing our strategy along with several major steps we’re taking to confront the Iranian regime’s hostile actions and to ensure that Iran never — and I mean never — acquires a nuclear weapon.’ The president also spoke of his fear of intercontinental missiles, adding he wants to ensure these are never part of Iran’s nuclear program.

He never wants Iran to have nuclear weapons. While Trump did not pull the United States out of the agreement, aimed at preventing Iran from developing a nuclear bomb, he gave the US Congress 60 days to decide whether to re-impose economic sanctions on Tehran that were lifted under the pact.

That would increase tension with Iran as well as put Washington at odds with other signatories of the accord such as Britain, France, Germany, Russia, China and the European Union.

    1. I think Iran (or the Iranian government and the Republican Guard) are a dangerous regime that promotes fear, provides a haven for terrorists, arms terrorists and is a dangerous regime.

      As with all such regimes, their own people are the ones who suffer the most.

      They are a threat to the region and a threat to America.

      Unfortunately, there is another nation that supplies terrorist organisations with money in the region.

      But we do a great deal of business with them and they are a major supplier of oil. That nation of course is Saudi Arabia, but because of the substantial business interests that exist with the West, nothing will ever be done.

      In the ‘good old days’ the Israeli’s would have sent bombed up F-16I’s down to Iran and destroyed the Iranian refineries, but that is seen as to politically sensitive these days.

      1. Thank you for your reply. It appears we think along the same lines. And as far as I can tell – everything is politically and personally sensitive these days!! The PC people have taken away freedom of speech right before our eyes.
