The rogue government in Iran badly miscalculated Donald Trump as President.
Their radical Islamic leaders got used to Barack Obama’s policies of weakness and appeasement.
And now the U.S. military just sent Iran this one message that was every Islamic radical’s worst nightmare.
When Donald Trump withdrew America from Barack Obama’s disastrous nuclear deal, the President reinstituted the crippling economic sanctions that strangled Iran’s economy.
Obama – in an act of treason to America – had lifted the sanctions in exchange for a deal that allowed Iran to acquire a nuclear weapon about ten to twelve years down the road.
Iran is staring economic ruin in the face and their terrorist supporting government is lashing out.
The U.S. government declared Iran was responsible for a series of attacks on oil tankers which began in May, with the latest coming against two Japanese tankers in the Gulf of Oman.
Iran is attacking oil tankers in order to cripple supplies and drive up prices.
And in fact, oil prices have surged since the attacks on the two Japanese tankers.
Higher oil prices could cause an economic contraction as consumers worldwide would save money by driving less.
As higher gas prices consume an increasing portion of a family’s budget, they’ll have less discretionary income for other pursuits.
That means fewer customers at restaurants, tourists traveling for vacations, or families spending the day shopping.
But that isn’t Iran’s only method of threatening the West.
Iran announced that by Monday it would exceed the limits placed on enriched Uranium as part of Obama’s 2015 nuclear agreement.
Critics contended there was no way Iran could reach that capacity so soon unless they had been cheating the deal all along.
The Trump administration did not beg for a deal or show any signs of weakness.
Instead, the Trump administration deployed an additional 1,000 troops to the Middle East to act as a defensive deterrent.
“In response to a request from the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) for additional forces, and with the advice of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and in consultation with the White House, I have authorized approximately 1,000 additional troops for defensive purposes to address air, naval, and ground-based threats in the Middle East,” the Pentagon’s statement read.
President Trump has not advocated for war with Iran.
In fact, he said he would be willing to talk.
But he is not going to negotiate from a position of weakness or beg for peace with an appeasement policy like Barack Obama did.
That is the biggest difference between now and 2015.
Iran may be slow to realize this fact.
No one wants war in the Middle East.
Not even the fanatical leaders of Iran.
They know they would lose.
The other European partners in Obama’s deal tried to save the nuclear agreement.
But with Trump intent on imposing sanctions and Iran’s support for terrorist attacks on oil tankers, they know the 2015 nuclear agreement is no longer salvageable.
They will have to come around to President Trump’s new negotiations to hammer out a real deal that truly prevents Iran from ever obtaining a nuclear weapon.
