    “Today's action follows a series of aggressive behaviors by the Iranian regime in recent weeks including shooting down a U.S. drone,” the president said in the Oval Office, calling Khamenei “responsible for the hostile conduct of the regime.”

    And tramp loves the people in Iran to riot in the street, just like Venezuela. Sanctions only make people angry.

    Yes, the sanctions will make the people angry along with the very top leaders. How is that a bad thing?

    Would sending Iran another billion or two billion dollars be a better solution?

    Penny did not read the article, apparently.

    Trump is not punishing the Iranian people, but targeting their leadership instead, who are enormously wealthy and largely unscathed by normal sanctions.

    He is not only hitting them where it hurts by denying them financial services, which he understands, he is also targeting the people responsible for the extreme antagonism.

    Truman understood sanctions that actually work and work quickly.

    No president since has though there is still some chance for the current one.

    Moderators move threads from the Politics section to Current Events (or whatever) so dimocrap idealogues can make political comments on them?
