Lost in much of the discussion surrounding the Trump admin's imposition of unilateral US sanctions against #Iran is the massive human suffering caused by his so-called "maximum pressure" campaign.
They're pressure for the sake of pressure, aimed at creating a destructive situation inside #Iran.
Trump has based his Iran policy on the wishes of his right-wing billionaire donors & his Saudi, Emirati, & Israeli friends.
Their preference for war with #Iran is abundantly clear.
They've unleashed an all-out economic war—betraying a goal to collapse the country.
The coup was a brazen act of imperialism against a semi-colonized state moving towards greater self-determination.
They've triggered cost of life-saving medicine to soar, shortages in everyday drugs, & rapid inflation that's making essential goods unaffordable for many Iranians.
Tragically, among the hardest hit groups inside Iran are the most vulnerable, including children & the poor.
But perhaps nothing moreso than the fate of an entire population faced w/ a draconian sanctions regime from a leader that makes a game out of their hardships.
