New U.S. Sanctions on Iran Impose Cost on Regime’s Hostile Behavior

Tuesday evening on his nationally syndicated radio show, LevinTV host Mark Levin interviewed national security adviser John Bolton about the Trump administration's decision to impose further sanctions on the terrorist regime that rules Iran. He added that the sanctions are just one component of the Trump administration's strategy to combat the Iranian regime.

"China's commercial cooperation with Iran is open and transparent, reasonable, fair and lawful, not violating any United Nations Security Council resolutions", it added.

"The countries now the United States is negotiating with have told Washington that they will continue their oil purchases from Iran", he explained.

The first round of USA sanctions reinstated against Iran this week makes clear to the Islamic Republic the Trump administration's willingness to financially squeeze the regime until it curbs its destabilizing behavior, according to regional experts.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, speaking in a meeting with North Korea's foreign minister, said that America could not be trusted, according to the Islamic Republic News Agency.

European countries, hoping to persuade Tehran to continue to respect the nuclear deal, have promised to try to lessen the blow of sanctions and to urge their firms not to pull out.

Danish engineering company Haldor Topsoe, one of the world's leading industrial catalyst producers, said on Wednesday it would cut around 200 jobs from its workforce of 2,700 due to the new U.S sanctions on Iran, which made it very hard for its customers there to finance new projects.

Despite the political will to hold firm, many large European firms such as German automaker Daimler are leaving Iran for fear of U.S. penalties. Turkey buys an estimated 9.5bn cubic metres of gas from Iran.

Despite opposing claims from the USA and Israel, researchers from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) maintain that Iran continues to abide by its commitment in the deal.

He has said the deal "failed to achieve the fundamental objective of blocking all paths to an Iranian nuclear bomb" and did not address Tehran's "malign activities, including its ballistic missile programme and its support for terrorism".

Since it unilaterally pulled out of the deal in May, Washington has told other countries that they must halt all imports of Iranian oil from November 4, or face USA financial measures. "No preconditions. If they want to meet, I'll meet", Trump said.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said Wednesday it was hard to imagine new talks with the U.S. after it lost the trust of the world with its erratic decision-making.

"The performance of the USA government over the years is such that today the United States is recognized as an unreliable country in the world that does not adhere to any of its obligations", the President said, calling for the "expansion of relations and cooperation" between Tehran and Pyongyang.

Low mortgage rates not impressing potential new home buyers
One of the problems is that once rates reach rock bottom (which is pretty well where they are right now) the only way is up. This could be a good time for more young Americans to take out a Roth Individual Retirement Account or IRA for short.
