    NYT: Trumpís Economic Sanctions Have Destroyed Iranís Will to Fight

    NYT: Trumps Will to Fight | Breitbart


    The New York Times noted Monday that one reason the United States successfully stared down the Iranian regime last week was that President Donald Trumpís renewed economic sanctions have made the cost of war too high for Iran to bear.
    In an analysis published Monday, titled ďIranís Grim Economy Limits Its Willingness to Confront the U.S.,Ē the Times explained:
    Crippling sanctions imposed by the Trump administration have severed Iranís access to international markets, decimating the economy, which is now contracting at an alarming 9.5 percent annual rate, the International Monetary Fund estimated. Oil exports were effectively zero in December, according to Oxford Economics, as the sanctions have prevented sales, even though smugglers have transported unknown volumes.
    Ö
    The bleak economy appears to be tempering the willingness of Iran to escalate hostilities with the United States, its leaders cognizant that war could profoundly worsen national fortunes. In recent months, public anger over joblessness, economic anxiety and corruption has emerged as a potentially existential threat to Iranís hard-line regime.
    Ö
    Inflation is running near 40 percent, assailing consumers with sharply rising prices for food and other basic necessities. More than one in four young Iranians is jobless, with college graduates especially short of work, according to the World Bank.
    Moreover, Europe and the United Nations could also join the U.S. in reimposing their sanctions in the near future.
    Some fear that hard-liners within the regime could see war as a potential way to stimulate the economy, the Times notes. However, a full and direct confrontation with the U.S. ďwould likely weaken the currency and exacerbate inflation, while menacing what remains of national industry.Ē It could also ďthreaten a run on domestic banks,Ē the Times notes.
    As Breitbart News recently noted, President Trumpís decision to leave President Barack Obamaís nuclear deal and reimpose sanctions on Iran ó not just for its nuclear activities but for its terrorism and human rights abuses ó has more than wiped out the economic gains Iran achieved by agreeing to the Iran deal in 2015.
    Trump has left the regime with a set of impossible choices: risk war, and damage the domestic economy further, leading to destabilizing protests; or yield to U.S. demands, saving the economy but also showing Iranians the regime can be defeated.

    All Iran would have to do is discard its nuclear ambition.

    Here's the REAL problem the Mullahs face with "escalation:" UNLIKE former Presidents, Trump has let it be known that Iranian Oil wells are potential targets.

    Now, this would PISS the rest of the world off, because they want that cheap oil, but....it would absolutely DEVASTATE the Iranian economy. (Wouldn't even need sanctions, as they would have nothing to sell or trade....)

    As a side note... did you see this?

    Could it be Trumps approach.....could ultimately turn Iran?

    All Iran has to do to rejoin the world is: Give up the nuclear weapons program, terrorism, and the kooky part of their religion. Presto Iran is back in the world.

    That is like saying the Democrats in order to join reality just need to give up impeachment, abortion & the LGBTQ agenda.

    Whoa. That is far more than we get from Democrats who actually live here & are Americans. That says something.
