    EU hits Iran with sanctions

    The EU hit Iran’s intelligence services with sanctions Tuesday after accusing Tehran of being behind plots to assassinate regime opponents on Dutch, Danish, and French soil.
    The move by the 28-nation bloc was announced as the Dutch government said it believed Iran was behind the murders of two dissidents in 2015 and 2017.
    “Very encouraging that (the) EU has just agreed on new targeted sanctions against Iran in response to hostile activities and plots being planned and perpetrated in Europe, including Denmark,” Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen said.
    The “EU stands united — such actions are unacceptable and must have consequences,” he tweeted.
    Sanctions include the freezing of funds and other financial assets of the Iranian intelligence ministry and individuals, officials said.
    Someone will explain to me why this is different from Saudi Arabia's murder of 'dissidents' no doubt. For, Obama will deliver cash that must be delivered on a f'n pallet to Iran...….who the EU has finally decided their murders of political opponents must be sanctioned...cannot be tolerated. Obama's cash delivery was in Jan of 2016....right in between the murders of Iranian political dissidents....seemingly without the media's knowledge.

    And oh look....what else is the EU sanctioning Iran for? What does that say in that link, the Danish PM Lars Lokke "hostile activities and plots being planned and perpetrated in Europe"...…..

    So.....Iran is killing political dissidents...….and involved in hostile activities......plotting and planning.

    France last year imposed sanctions on two suspected Iranian agents and others from Iran’s ministry of intelligence and security.
    The French security services concluded that the head of operations at the Iranian intelligence ministry had ordered a plot to bomb a rally of the People’s Mujahedeen of Iran (MEK) opposition group in a suburb of Paris in June last year — which Tehran strongly denied….
    Iran denies. Saudi Arabian Kings denied.....it's amazing what our media can stoke up, you'll remember our fourm's fervor and hysterics over the Khashoggi's killing, you'd think the man was their Uncle. Appears regimes in the ME murder political dissidents and it happens quite often. Thus, when one cherry picks hysterics, one....exposes oneself. Our American Media absolutely guilty of manipulation and fake news.

    Here is some background, and why the Iranians wont be able to change reality.



    France has concluded that Iran’s ministry of intelligence was behind a foiled bombing attack that targeted a rally organised by an Iranian opposition group near Paris in June.

    French diplomatic sources said on Tuesday that they believed a ranking official from within the Iranian ministry of intelligence had ordered the attack. He was named as Saeid Hashemi Moghadam, a deputy minister and director general of intelligence.

    Belgian authorities said in July that an Iranian diplomat, who works for Tehran’s mission to Austria, was arrested in Germany, while a married couple – Belgian citizens of Iranian heritage – were detained with “attempt at terrorist murder and preparing a terrorist crime” against the MEK.

    It emerged on Tuesday that the Iranian diplomat Assadollah Assadi is poised to be extradited from Germany to Belgium for prosecution. The Belgian-Iranian couple were in a Mercedes car when they were stopped by special forces and arrested in Woluwe-Saint-Pierre, which is close to EU institutions in Brussels. According to Belgian media, police found 500 grams of TATP explosive and a detonator hidden in a toiletries bag.....snip~

    Here is what the EU really got upset with.


    EMBARRASSING: Europeans Realizing Trump Was Right About Iran .....


    On Tuesday, diplomats from the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and France expressed their concern because of an Iranian medium-range ballistic missile test on Saturday.

    The U.S. government stated that the missile Iran tested could reach Europe and the Middle East. According to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the missile could carry multiple warheads and violated Security Council Resolution 2231, which instructed Iran to refrain from “any activity related to ballistic missiles designed to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons, including launches using such ballistic missile technology.”

    France reiterates that the Iranian ballistic missile program is not in compliance with UNSCR 2231 (2015). It calls on Iran to immediately cease any activity related to ballistic missiles designed to be able to carry nuclear weapons, including launches using ballistic missile technology.”

    As Fox News reports, the European ambassadors joined in expressing their concern:....snip~

    Indeed, the Washington Post....who Khashoggi was a contributor for...defended the cash payments to Iran in 2016......It was the Post’s Jason Rezaian who was exchanged for 400 mil in euros, dollars, and Swiss francs. And while Iran was busy killing dissidents, Obama sent them, 1+ billion more.

    Fake News Washington Post....but look to our forum alone during the Khashoggi incident......shameful. Sheep driven by the media.

    Cut to chase on this. The reason the Euro's are putting on these sanctions is because they have been gamed by the man they hate once more.. Donald Trump.

    Bottom line.. if they didn't they would face trade sanctions with the US. If European countries (read Germany) cant export to the US they are toast..done... They had no choice. Same reason they upped their NATO fees.. a different story.. but finally we have President that is reminding them who needs who.. They need US markets, capital, resources and defense. We need precisely none of that from them.

    Next exhibit of this will be when the hard Brexit comes. UK will need a free trade deal done on very favorable terms with US. They will come begging for it in the next 60 days. They will get it but on hugely favorable terms to the US. This will make them effectively tied to the US for the next 50 years and in turn they will act accordingly when needed.

    More winning. Trump is smashing the old order and the US will be better off for it.

    Think of it like this. The rest of the world needs the old order. The US does not. Only the US can uphold the old order.

    Think people.... Think
