As sanctions bite, where next for Trump's Iran strategy

The U.S. has been pushing its allies to halt their import of Iranian oil ahead of the November deadline.

But it is not clear that perceived sincerity on the part of the U.S. president would change Iran's position with regard to a meeting between its own officials and their declared enemies. I'm ready to meet whenever they want to.

"We will track down Iranian operatives and their Hezbollah proxies operating around the world and crush them", Pompeo said.

"Iran, and its economy, is going very bad, and fast!" he said in the same missive.

We will remind, on may 8, U.S. President Donald trump said that the USA withdraws from agreement on Iran's nuclear program.

Speaking on May 21 in Washington, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Iran "will have to choose between maintaining its economy or sponsoring terrorist and insurgent groups in countries like Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, and Yemen" or what he called "squandering precious wealth on fights overseas".

They face opposition. Ali Motahari, the deputy speaker of parliament, told Jafari bluntly that either accepting or rejecting Trump's offer of talks was no business of the military, and the decision would be taken by Iran's highest authorities.

He was responding to a July 22 warning from Rouhani that the US should not "play with the lion's tail" and warned that any conflict with Iran would be the "mother of all wars".

Starting this week, Washington will re-impose sanctions on Iran's purchases of US dollars, its trade in gold and precious metals, and its dealings with metals, coal and industrial-related software.

We are trying to prepare the grounds to use a domestic digital currency in the country... It then added that "Iranian social media and exile groups have reported fresh anti-government protests in some cities" as the people blame the clerical regime's behavior for those indicators and for courting the wrath of the Trump administration.

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said July 27 there was no policy that had been put in place with the goal of collapsing or changing the Iranian regime.

The exercise could shut down of the Strait of Hormuz, a crucial Gulf passage for shipments of numerous commodities.

In the absence of any involvement by the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the hard-liners fear that the current government, with the aim of improving relations with the United States, and with the support of the public, will end the IRGC's advantages and completely change the path of the Islamic republic.
