While the title seems very bold against the U.S. & in favor of #Iran's regime, taking a deeper look sheds interesting light.

The "special purpose vehicle" is nothing but a "paper tiger"...

"But the EU, which along with China and Russia remains committed to the nuclear deal, is struggling with the limited tools at its disposal to fight the sanctions and facilitate continued trade with the Islamic republic."

Oil money will be going into a foreign bank account to only be used for humanitarian purposes.
These will be relentless sanctions, he added.

We are imposing the highest pressure on #Iran's regime. Tehran will be facing mounting isolation until they end their malign activities. We are watching the Iranian regime with laser focus.

Pompeo:
We understand #Iran is a threat to the US & we are determined to stop them.
Iran's Qassem Suleimani has American blood on his hands.

I noticed many people believed that the exit of @HSBC & @UBS from Nigeria is because of the effectiveness of the ongoing war on corruption. It's not true, do not be deceived. Their exit from our country is not a good pointer to the confidence in our economy.

Here is why

Since the collapse of the European empires, England, France, Germany, Spain & Portugal etc after the second world war due to their utter destruction, the empires started the to break up because the stress upon them is no longer bearable. Most overseas territories must be ceded.
The only standing power, with resources, military, and money is the U.S. Europe need to rebuild its infrastructure and institutions. So a meeting was convened at Bretton Woods, New Hampshire for a Monetary and Financial Conference. The U.S wanted to help Europe rebuild.

Contrary to public perception @SushmaSwaraj was not trolled for her role in the passport row. She was targeted for her opposition to US sanctions on India for not dumping Iranian oil. Trump has set a deadline for Oil War. Will Sushma Swaraj nudge?

Sanctions are a way of weaponizing Dollar already pegged to Saudi Oil. @SushmaSwaraj refused to fight this Anglo-American war against Iran, Russia, China, Turkey for which she was trolled into silence. Now, James Mattis is here to oversee this compliance. gginews.in/the-nudging-ofโ€ฆ
When Nikki Haley was sent to rein in @SushmaSwaraj, defying US pressure she retorted โ€œWe do not make our foreign policy under pressure from other countries. We believe in UN sanctions but not in US sanctions.โ€ Will she be nudged by now James Mattis? gginews.in/the-nudging-ofโ€ฆ

In a nutshell & contrary to public perception @SushmaSwaraj was targeted for her opposition to US sanctions on India for not dumping Iranian oil. But if troll army was unleashed by establishment, what does it say abt India's #ForeignPolicy? If not than who controls Indian trolls?
"We dont make our #foreignpolicy under pressure from other countries. We believe in UN sanctions but not in US sanctions.โ€
-@SushmaSwaraj defies US sanctions on India for buying Iranian oil. So why were trolls from establishment unleashed against her for protecting our interests?
Maybe @SushmaSwaraj didnt realise she was playing with Fire & hence had to be Nudged. But than why would this nudging come from the establishment's pet troll army. Have they lost control over their own trolls or are they being controlled from somewhere else by someone else?

Today, Trump imposed a new round of sanctions on Iran. This is just months after he violated the Nuclear Deal, breaking the 2015 agreement by both the US and Iran committing both sides to diplomacy. #IranSanctions

Sanctions are a form of silent warfare, make no mistake about it.
These sanctions coincide with the 73rd anniversary of the US nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the only time in history a military has used nuclear weapons to obliterate entire cities.
Apparently, the irony is lost on Trump that he is imposing sanctions on Iran and threatening to launch a war under the pretext of stopping Iran from getting nukes - on the exact anniversary of the day the US slaughtered hundreds of thousands of Japanese with nuclear bombs.
