    American sanctions and global economic crisis

    TEHRAN - U.S. new sanctions on Iran, Russia, Venezuela and N. Korea and tariff conflicts with China and E.U. is going to be a part of daily news. Broadening the criteria of sanctions and putting concentration on financial systems, not only decreases the effect of the sanctions in wider view but also makes the policy makers of the targeted countries to reach to this conclusion that for preventing the collapse of international economy, global financial system generally and common global trade currency (USD) specially must be replaced with more independent alternatives.

    With U.S. President Trump, money trumps all

    NORTH CAROLINA - Donald Trump during his career as a real estate mogul cheated any number of contractors over several decades who helped build his real estate holdings. He did not pay them what they were due, just as he cheated the world of continued U.S. participation in the JCPOA, and with that cheated or robbed the Iranian people of relative prosperity by applying draconian economic sanctions.

    Trump’s “Threat” Administration is a one trick pony so far

    The Trump Administration ought to be renamed “The Threat Administration”. Even the so-called “special relationship” between the U.S. and the U.K. has been threatened simply because the Brits seem to want to buy top of the line Chinese 5G Huawei broadband technology. In fact, it’s not hard to get the impression that Trump and his foreign policy team, Bolton and Pompeo especially, are now bouncing off the bloody walls of the White House of late frustrated by their own failures so far and beginning to bump in to each other.
