Iran Sanctions -- Taking Sides
By Micah Halpern
Wednesday August 8, 2018
I've Been Thinking:
Now that US sanctions have been snapped back on Iran different countries are lining up in two columns - for and against.
The EU has said that they will not support the US sanctions and will even help companies that may be punished by the United States.
China has said that they will not accept US sanctions.
Iraq, a neighbor and sworn enemy of Iran, said that they disagree with sanctions however they will abide by the US requests.
At a news conference on Tuesday, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said:
"As a matter of principle we are against sanctions in the region. Blockade and sanctions destroy societies and do not weaken regimes."
"We consider them (sanctions on Iran) a strategic mistake and incorrect but we will abide by them to protect the interests of our people. We will not interact with them or support them but we will abide by them."
Surprising, not really. Some countries still recognize the power that the United States wields.
