The Iran sanctions have officially been cast. These are the most biting sanctions ever imposed, and in November they ratchet up to yet another level. Anyone doing business with Iran will NOT be doing business with the United States. I am asking for WORLD PEACE, nothing less!

“Anyone doing business with Iran will NOT be doing business with the United States” This is what Donald Trump had to say.
In the world where US is increasingly running out of friends it’s a damning say to do, let alone implement. While the US President’s myopic vision persists, his policy makers have already marked out exceptions for US partners – Including for India to continue to have relations with Iran.
Meanwhile Iran claims innocence on the developments. “I don’t have preconditions. If the US government is willing, let’s start right now,” Rouhani said during an interview on Iranian television.
If US stays true to the threat of its president, it might break the world order. The US sanctions do not have validity of any international forum. From UN to NATO all of US friends, allies and so called international community is out of loop on these sanctions. The other signatories to the Iranian nuclear deal, European Union, Russia and China, all are sticking to their commitment to Tehran.
The EU, along with UK, France and Germany have already opposed the US sanctions. EU has gone further and announced it will take steps to protect its own legitimate interests with Iran. From India to Sri Lanka, all nations are asking for diplomatic concessions from US to not be in open denial of itd demands.
This time Americans are truly headed for a mess they cannot contain
