The United States is giving a clear message to the world about doing any kind of business with the country of Iran. Just don’t do it.
The U.S. made an announcement that a carrier strike group and bombers are being sent to the Mideast to put Iran on notice. This is being done so there is a “strong message” and the “right message,” Energy Secretary Rick Perry told CNBC on Tuesday.
President Donald Trump is clearly saying to the world that the U.S. won’t stand for Tehran’s “support of terrorism” and its threats to restart its nuclear program, said Perry.
“The smart message for our friends and allies around the world is. ‘Don’t do business with this people until they understand that there is a way to that you conduct yourself in the global community,’” Perry said in an interview.
The Trump administration said last week that it would end waivers for countries buying Iranian oil. The administration is making an attempt to reduce Iran’s crude exports to zero following Washington’s withdrawal from the 2015 multination nuclear deal with Tehran. In response, the state media of Iran is making reports that the country plans to revive part of its halted nuclear program but claims it does not plan to pull out of the nuclear agreement itself.
U.S. national security advisor John Bolton, revealed his intention on Sunday for a carrier strike group deployment to the Mideast. He has been the point man for a increasingly hawkish U.S. policy on Iran. Bolton said the move shows America would retaliate with “unrelenting force” to any attack.
How do you think this clear message from Trump, Bolton and Perry will be received by Iran and other world leaders? We look forward to seeing your comments on this world-wide issue at the end of this article.
