    She's a Trumpist. Good luck with that.

    Good grief, man. The US didn't stop Iran, it wants to stop the IRG ...


    @SecPompeo
    The @StateDept’s @Rewards4Justice program is offering a reward of up to $15 million for information that disrupts the financial mechanisms of Iran’s IRGC. It’s the first time the U.S. has taken such action against another gov’t entity based on their terrorist activities.

    How many deaths have sanctions caused in Syria? We are on the side opposing Assad and that is all Bad Guys and that makes us Bad Guys. Pull very hard and perhaps you can get your head out.

    Doesn't matter if they did or not. Some external body doesn't have the authority to tell one country they can't sell their own product to another.

Syria or Iran applied sanctions to Iran shipping oil to Syria would that be violating sanctions. As such Iran supplying oil to Syria is perfectly legal under international law

    Iran signed an agreement.

    No responsibility for Iran, though, huh?

    Even the most simple minded, excepting yourself, have become aware that the USA has been supporting the gassers, a/k/a, ISIS, White Helmets, al Qeda, Nusrs, etc. We are supporting the Bad Guys who are the gassers. We are responsible for much killing in Syria. Also in Libya, Iraq, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan, Nicaragua, ad infinitum, totaling aboutr 20 million dead since WWII. Strange because noone has attacked us. I guess that if you want to be good at killing, you have to practice it and we do and you can share some responsibility for that by responding so well to perception management (brainwashing).

    And...

    Time to first lie...

    First sentence. Where you dishonestly conflate multiple entities.

    Time to second lie. Second sentence. Where the acts of Assad are blamed on various rebelling entities.

    Time to third lie. 20 million.

    Why do you lie?
