Trump Ratchets Up the Pressure on Iran by Order To 'Substantially Increase Sanctions'
By Joe Saunders
Published September 18, 2019 at 10:34am
This isn’t the Obama administration anymore.

President Donald Trump’s efforts to isolate the terrorist regime in Tehran have already driven the Iranian economy into the ground — a rude turnaround from their coddling under the previous president — but Iran’s leaders might be finding out soon how low they can go.

After the weekend drone attack on Saudi Arabian oil facilities, which Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blamed on Iran on Wednesday, according to Fox News, Trump is going to push even harder.
“I have just instructed the Secretary of the Treasury to substantially increase Sanctions on the country of Iran!” Trump wrote in a Twitter post Wednesday morning.

I have just instructed the Secretary of the Treasury to substantially increase Sanctions on the country of Iran!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 18, 2019

Details about the new sanctions weren’t released Wednesday, but it can’t be a good sign for Iran’s leadership.

Since Trump’s election, the U.S. has abandoned the accommodationist approach toward the murderous mullahs of the Islamic Republic that had driven the Obama administration.

That misguided policy resulted in the United States not only signing a deal that would have allowed Iran to build a nuclear weapon within a decade, but in the U.S. flying literal planeloads of cash to Iran, as The Wall Street Journal reported in 2016.

That came out out to a cool $1.3 billion, according to The Wall Street Journal — enough to fund any number of proxy-war activities by the “Death to America” crowd, with enough left over to pay for some terrorists who attack Israel, too.

Only a Democrat could love a deal like that.

What Trump’s announcement Wednesday didn’t do was raise the threat of a military conflict.

No matter how Democrats try to paint him as a warmonger, Trump has pushed negotiations on every front since he’s been in office.

Sometimes that pushing has been saber-rattling — like the exchange of threats that brought North Korea to the bargaining table early in his administration.

RELATED: Iranian Woman Sets Herself on Fire in Protest After Illegally Attending Soccer Match

Sometimes it’s been financial — like the current trade war with China and the tariffs each country has imposed on the other’s goods.

With Iran, Trump took a firm line early on and hasn’t backed away a bit.

Advertisement - story continues below

Every since he officially dumped the Obama nuclear deal, Trump has made it clear that while he isn’t leaping at any Iranian provocation, he’s willing to hit back in his own way — and in ways that will really hurt Iran.

After the weekend attack against Saudi Arabia — a U.S. ally and Iran’s chief regional rival — the screws are going to get tighter.

Because this isn’t the Obama administration anymore.

Editor’s note: This post was updated to add that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday blamed Iran for the attack.

UPDATE: Iranian cruise missiles and drones used in Saudi oil facilities
(Fox News) – It has been more than three days since Saudi Arabia’s oil infrastructure was crippled and, as the investigation continues, fingers are pointing toward Iran as not only the perpetrator, but also the launch territory. U.S. officials told Fox News on Tuesday that Iranian cruise missiles and drones were both used in the attack on the two Saudi Arabian oil facilities, and that they were fired from inside southwest Iran.

Senator Lindsey Graham says US should consider military response to Iranian attack on Saudi oil refinery
September 15, 2019 by Jerry McCormick
Iran continues to push the envelope, and now, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) believes it is time to make its leaders pay.
After Iran carried out an attack against Saudi oil refineries, Sen. Graham gave notice that he believes the United States should firmly consider retaliating with a military strike against Iran, according to The Hill.

It is now time for the U.S. to put on the table an attack on Iranian oil refineries if they continue their provocations or increase nuclear enrichment.

Pushing the Envelope
Iran is too cowardly to directly take on the United States, so the country continues to attack our allies. Several weeks ago, Iran captured several oil tankers that were traveling through the Strait of Hormuz.
While they’ve stopped short of actually attacking our vessels, they have regularly harassed them and have shot down one of our drones.
Now, the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels have attacked a Saudi Arabian oil refinery.
While the United States has done everything in its power to avoid an armed conflict with Iran, clearly the situation is changing, and it may be time to drop the gloves and give them what they are asking for.
The Trump administration has been putting the squeeze on Iran with sanctions, which were recently increased.
A recent report stated that pension funds will be bankrupt very soon in Iran if the sanctions are not lifted, and we also know the country’s economy is on the brink of collapse due to the sanctions.
Hit Them Where It Hurts
While the sanctions are doing some serious damage, it may be time to really hurt Iran by erasing one of its most profitable exports, namely oil.
As Graham has suggested, given that Iran took aim on Saudi oil capabilities, a strike in kind should be carried out.
Oil is obviously where Iran makes most of its money, with crude oil representing almost $40 billion of its export market, which is about 14 times the amount generated by its next closest export, ethylene polymers, at a mere $2.75 billion.
Iran may act like it wants to play with the big boys, but the United States can cripple the country in its entirety with a series of calculated strikes against the lifeblood of its economy.

Iran seizes another oil tanker in Strait of Hormuz as Gulf crisis erupts
(Express) – Iran is believed to have seized another oil tanker passing through the Strait of Hormuz. The Israeli Broadcasting Corporation is reporting another ship has been seized in the gulf. Correspondent Amochai Stein said on Twitter: “Iran has seized another oil vessel in the Strait of Hormuz. Iran’s Revolutionary Guard arrests a vessel and 11 crew on ‘diesel smuggling charges’.” It comes after Iran said accusations it had a role in the attack on Saudi oil installations were “unacceptable” and “baseless”, after a senior US official said the Islamic Republic was behind it.
 
“These allegations are condemned as unacceptable and entirely baseless,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi said in remarks carried by state TV. On Sunday, a senior US official told reporters that evidence from the attack, which hit the world’s biggest oil processing facility on Saturday, indicated Iran was behind it, instead of the Yemeni Houthi group that had claimed responsibility. Donald Trump waded into the row by issuing a fierce warning to Iran that America was “locked and loaded” in a chilling response to the oil field attacks.

Donald Trump waded into the row by issuing a fierce warning to Iran that America was "locked and loaded" in a chilling esponse to the oil field attacks.
The US President said on Twitter: "There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of the attack, and under what terms we would proceed."
He then said the US had 'PLENTY OF OIL!' despite the attacks on the fields.

US Officials Say These Images Show Iran Was Behind 'Unprecedented' Oil Field Attack
By Jack Davis
Published September 16, 2019 at 8:03am
Iran was behind a Saturday attack on Saudi oil facilities that sent oil prices spiking, according to multiple Trump administration officials, who are using satellite imagery to make their case.

On Saturday, multiple coordinated strikes damaged Saudi oil refineries.

Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen immediately took credit for the attack, which they said was launched from drones.
U.S. officials have pushed back against that narrative as they build a case that Iran was involved. Officials released satellite photographs showing 19 points of impact at the Saudi facility that was attacked, The New York Times reported.

The images show that the damage was consistent with an attack launched from either Iran or Iraq, which are to the north and west of the site, rather than the south in Yemen.
Officials who gave several media outlets a background briefing also said the impact points prove that there were not simply 10 drones used, as the Houthi rebels claimed.
“You can’t hit 19 targets with 10 drones like that,” the official said, according to CNN.
During the briefing, one official said the attack appeared to use drones and cruise missiles “both and a lot of them,” which would be beyond the technological capacity of the rebels.

Attack on Saudi oil facility came from direction of Iran, not Yemen: U.S. official https://reut.rs/30lV0ZQ 
Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Seyyed Abbas Mousavi denied Iran’s responsibility for the attack.

“Such blind accusations and inappropriate comments in a diplomatic context are incomprehensible and meaningless,” he said, adding, “even hostility needs a certain degree of credibility and reasonable frameworks, US officials have also violated these basic principles.”

Vice President Mike Pence’s Chief of Staff Marc Short said Monday that he’s “quite confident” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will release more evidence to document Iran’s link to the attack.

“There’s no doubt that Iran has been a malign actor on the stage here and has been supporting the Houthi rebels in Yemen, but I think there’s certainly greater evidence that he’ll be sharing that directly ties these attacks to Iran,” Short said.
Utopian Reports
Short also addressed language used by President Donald Trump in a Sunday night tweet.

“Saudi Arabia oil supply was attacked. There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!” Trump tweeted.

Saudi Arabia oil supply was attacked. There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!
Short said no attack is imminent.

“I think that locked and loaded is a broad term and talks about the realities that we’re all far safer and more secure domestically from energy independence,” Short said.

“This is not the 1970s oil embargo. It’s not 1990 when Iraq invaded Kuwait. We’re now a net oil exporter which means that the American market is much better protected.”

Oil prices rose instantly after the attack, rising as high as 18 percent, but retreated from that level, CNN reported. However, the oil price spike sent stocks diving on Wall Street.
Trump immediately took action to stabilize prices and noted the U.S. has insulated itself from the price shock of the damage to the Saudi facilities.

Pompeo has already directly accused Iran of launching the attack.

“Amid all the calls for de-escalation, Iran has now launched an unprecedented attack on the world’s energy supply,” Pompeo wrote on Twitter. “Tehran is behind nearly 100 attacks on Saudi Arabia while [President Hassan] Rouhani and [foreign minister Javad] Zarif pretend to engage in diplomacy,” he tweeted.

Tehran is behind nearly 100 attacks on Saudi Arabia while Rouhani and Zarif pretend to engage in diplomacy. Amid all the calls for de-escalation, Iran has now launched an unprecedented attack on the world’s energy supply.  There is no evidence the attacks came from Yemen.

“Iran wants to show that instead of a win-lose contest, Iran can turn this into a lose-lose dynamic for everyone,” Ali Vaez, head of the Iran Project at the International Crisis Group, said.

“Plausible deniability is a trademark of Iran’s pushback strategy,” he said.
