Some members of ADPF terrorist group attack a police station in Ahvaz, Iran

Some members of ADPF terrorist group attack paramilitary station in Ahvaz province.

They all got arrested later that night. #ADPF is a terrorist group is south-east of Iran that is largely funded by Saudi Arabia and UAE.

Last week, the Spokesman of the group he lives in Denmark, claim credit for the terrorist attack in Ahvaz that left 29 people dead, while he was live on TV interview and of course, Danish police did not arrest him even though he took credit for a terrorist attack!!!

 

Trump pursues a hostile policy to break Turkey’s economy

The tense relationship between Turkey and the US started after the coup in 2016. The reason for the coup which was quite crazy is the presence of NATO in the Turkish military. Erdogan knows this too and really took the coup personally.

The alleged organiser of the coup is in the US. Erdogan wants him back. The US, of course, doesn’t give him back. Turkey in return, has prisoned an American pastor for terrorism charges.

Other reasons are the Turkey new alliance with Iran and Russia. These two countries even though they were having notably tough relation at the time of coup with Erdogan over Syria but still offered support to him at the time, especially Iran which was directly involved in every minute and hour at the night of coup with Erdogan and his security team, indeed as it turned out, Iran was the only country in the region that sticked up with Turkey that night.

 

Trump foolishly wants to destroy the Turkish economy and bring them to submission but what it will really achieve is the removal of US forces in Turkey which is one of the main goals of Iran and Russia for a long time! Indeed, the US has already begun to remove some of its fighter jets to Greece, just yesterday.

 

Turkey also wants to get the famous Russian S400 which is a big no-no for the US and EU! This system can also protect Iran from Israel in the Future and that is what the NATO is really worried about since Erdogan seems to have changed some of its policy from pro- EU to pro-Palestinian which is a more natural and longer-lasting strategy for a Muslim country.

Another reason is the fact that Turkey announced it won’t comply with US sanction on Iran. Turkey is a large nation, they need gas and oil. Iran has provided them for years. They cannot just halt their long healthy relations with their neighbour as soon as the US felt like it.

 

Of course Turkey won’t submit to the US because they did once and the result was an organised coup! They will have a closer tie with Iran and Russia. Turkey and Iran can help each other a lot considering the wealth and natural resources they both posses.

I think if the US goes too far to sanction Turkey similar to Iran one day, they will only make the fall of Dollar quicker.

Will The Sanctions Break Iran’s Economy?

The entire package of sanction will come into effect on November which are related on Iran’s oil export and petrochemicals (any oil related product).

The sanctions on 6 August were on these matters:

Iranian economy is 34% dependent on oil but sanctions won’t be any more effective than When Obama imposed them. The only different now is that anyone who doesn’t comply with sanctions appear as hero and those who do comply appear as stooges. No one respect and is on board with the US.

It is really quite remarkable… now we have a situation in which EU is blocking the US on sanctioning the Eu companies!

“The Blocking Statute allows EU firms and individuals doing legitimate business in Iran to recover damages arising from the US sanctions and nullifies the effect in the EU of any foreign court ruling based on them. In addition to shielding EU companies, the Blocking Statute forbids EU persons from complying with the US sanctions, unless exceptionally authorised to do so by the European Commission.”( Iran Deal: EU to shield EU companies from re-imposed US sanctions – EEAS – European External Action Service – European Commission)

China will too continue its business with Iran along with India, Turkey, Pakistan and many other countries.

Iran economy will not collapse in the sense you think.

But ordinary people will sure feel more pressure at least at the beginning of the sanctions.
