Donald Trump imposes sanctions on Iran's national bank following attacks on Saudi Aramco

  • Published on Sep 20, 2019
  • US President Trump said he has ordered sanctions on Iran’s national bank at “the highest level.”
    “These are the highest sanctions ever imposed on a country. We’ve never done it to this level.”
    Trump made the remarks in the Oval Office where he held a bilateral meeting with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison.
    US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the bank was Tehran's last source of funds.
    “This is very big,” Mnuchin said. “We’ve now cut off all source of funds to Iran.”
    US officials have accused Iran of coordinating strikes of Saudi Arabia’s oil installations.
    Iran has denied it is behind the attacks.

    Bravo, Pentagon is to fight the Arab wars, an Army for hire, or the Washingtons palabras: "we sell you useless armaments and also the troops"...what a grand business, US has perhaps 50 serf states around the globe, a vassals to pay in human blood or "dollars", among most notorious are of course NATO members in Europe...which has no sovereignty to speak of...

    Very serious stuff.. China can only now be a supplier to Iran.. The US will impose a Oceanic blockade's for trade with iran and this will only get very messy..Food shortages and water and tech shortages ...I imagine Russia china , turkey and a few regional supporters will step in and make this the new Axis power to help Iran and actually create a world war which will be HOT . Heavy world financial recessions and no trade from china will shut down major online stores in the western world, western world might have to say goodbye to online trade .very very serious stuff .

    Very right step taken by USA president Trump as Iran crossing limits and attacking oil field of a Holy Muslim country Saudia is highly shameful and brutal attack which can make Middle east in a brutal war zone but Sir we want your role as a peace play also so sanctioning all deals is all right but if sir you must meet with Iranian government leaders as you did with S. Korean leadership otherwise we see a war which will take whole world as Iran just ready for any attacks from USA or if Saudia to respond them...All issues or tensions can be solved by talks first as now peace must be all our goal...May Allah save Middle East from a war......Ameen..

    Sanctions is an act of war that kills people. Imagine the world would put sanctions on the USA. That would hurt a lot of innocent people in the uSA and would be unjust.

    *So Trump says wars are an endless money pit and he’s against sticking Americas nose into other countries businesses while he was campaigning in 2016 and now he’s sending USA into another war?*
    *Well that was complete campaign BS then wasn’t it 🙄 right along with “Mexico is going to pay for the wall”..”I won’t have time to Golf because I’ll be to busy working”..and of course “I’m going to drain the swamp” yet it’s the fullest it’s ever been in US entire political history😤*

Iran will finish the war until last usa's soldier. Iran will eat you as his desert. You can't even sort out the wall in Mexico and now want to fight with iran, please don't say a joke.

    THE DUKE OF HINOJOSA 2 months ago

    The only country that is broke is the one this guy is supposedly president of.
    Stinks of Iraq and WOMD all over again....
    Stinks to high heaven all of it.. We all know that these sanctions are designed to provoke a response and more than likely this attack was a staged event.
    But being that the USA has about 100 trillion dollars in unfunded liabilities and Both russia and china are no longer buying American bonds and hoarding gold you can see war clouds gathering.
    The petrodollar is about to collapse and there is no way to spend and lend themselves out of this one.... Invading Iran would kick the can down the road a bit longer by either preventing china and russia from acquiring the oil continuing their growth while the USA socioeconomic apparatus degrades or they try and annex it...
    I cannot see China and Russia idly sitting by without atleast supplying support din a proxy style war... Russia and china having to spend resources to support Iran would at least check the economic advantage they could incur if the USA decided to invade...
    Problem is if it escalated into another full blown proxy war like Vietnam.... The entire globe will feel the pain.
    But, sadly... The usual suspects will only profit form this manufactured event and eventually end up with even more sociopolitical power....
    Ugly.... all of it...

    Trump: calls iran terrorists when they’re the only ones who fought off ISIS in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon
    Also Trump: funds and sells billions worth of weapons to 9/11 suspects (Israel/Saudi Arabia)
    Also Trump: ignores the fact that Saudi is responsible for killing Khashoggi, starving millions of innocent yemeny people, allows Israel to create nuclear weapons but doesn’t allow Hezbolla to make precise missiles

      That was a Stella statement!!! Wrong of course!! Firstly, there is no country called Indina!! Australia already sells coal to India and China!! Australia is a trading nation, so we trade!! Above all Stella, you should have learned to write the English that is mumbling it's way through your brain, so your fingers can articulate it through the pen. You sound like you never went to school, so why would anyone listen to your ignorant comments??
      Australia does care about the USA!! Enough to assist them every time USA requested and will into the future, as long as this world holds together.
