Allies To U.S.: “Drop Dead”

In a completely predictable move, U.S. “allies” are conspiring with Iran to get around America’s nuclear sanctions. With friends like these, who needs enemas?

Iranian leaders disclosed on Tuesday that they had recently held high-level meetings with European Union nations and leaders in India and Thailand to explore options for skirting new U.S. sanctions.

Iran’s efforts and the warm reception it is receiving from many nations has roiled leaders on Capitol Hill, where some lawmakers are already moving to confront these countries and ensure they face harsh repercussions for any breach of U.S. sanction law.

Meetings with leaders in India are said to have gone particularly well for Iran, sparking outrage in the United States where these same Indian leaders have been pleading with the Trump administration to boost relations. India and China have already vowed to continue purchasing Iranian crude oil, despite the Trump administration’s crackdown.

Many of our “NeverTrump” betters in the media have been railing against what they believe to be President Trump’s isolationism. Ironically, it is America’s allies who are forcing the isolationist hand with stunts like these.

Maybe sanctions against China, India, and the EU will make them fall back into line?

  1. What can you say about a country (India) that holds sacred one of my mealtime favorites? And I can barely comprehend that Iran forbids pork another mealtime staple. As for China, I do love a good sesame chicken. I do believe that if push comes to shove, those countries will side with the US rather an Iran but in the meantime, they are getting their crude oil.

  2. Ronni – With the deregulation of some drilling, pretty soon we may be able to offer them oil. It would be wise for these countries to remember barack Obama is no longer in office.

    Cathy – Agreed.

    1. Oh drat. Now I have to do a “heartfelt apology” for all the snowflakes here.

      What? No snowflakes here? I thought everyone had gone to sensitivity training/indoctrination!

      1. Just like when I was forced into sexual harassment training, it was disappointing when they only told us what we CAN’T do.
