TEHRAN (Iran News) – One of the tools or better to say weapons of the U.S. has been its sanctions against countries in recent centuries but it seems gradually this weapon is getting ineffective and countries are getting immune against sanctions as they can easily circumvent them and continue their ways and one of the countries which has always been under the target of this U.S. addiction is the Islamic Republic of Iran which has tasted any kind of the U.S. sanctions since its first day of emergence in 1979.
Once the U.S. governments used to invade the countries to show its power and dictate itself on the nations and countries but gradually because of suffering human and financial losses, the Americans resorted to their other weapon which is sanctions and in recent decades the number of the sanctions imposed by Washington on other countries has been on the rise and Iran has been one of the regular customers of the U.S. sanctions especially in the recent three decades.
Recent administrations in the U.S. have gradually realized that they cannot start a military confrontation with Tehran especially now that Tehran is getting powerful in any field especially in terms of military and its drone and missile power.
After the Vietnam War in 1970s and the Iraq war in 1990s, Washington has stepped up its sanctions war on countries which has less human casualties and financial damages for it, and every day the U.S. statesmen announce new sanctions against countries especially against the Islamic Republic of Iran and recently Russia and Belarus have joined the sanctions list.
But as it was mentioned before, countries have tried to find counter-sanctions measures and the Islamic Republic of Iran has been the best model for those countries which hahas thwarted the effects of sanctions in many fields and now the country is on the course of progress although the Americans try to hurl stones at the train of progress of the Islamic Republic of Iran
So every day when we wake up, we notice new round of sanctions on Iranian officials or entities and Iranians’ indifference to those sanctions make the West angry and fuming and it makes the U.S. to step up the volume of sanctions each time but every time the condition is the same, and for this reason it seems Americans are running out of sanctions and they may soon have no option but to impose sanctions on any common people in Iran.
On Friday, Washington announced a new list of sanctions against Iran which shows how the U.S. is wretched and angry over Iran’s progress in the drone and missile technology.
The U.S. imposed on Friday new sanctions against Iran, this time targeting an Iranian unmanned aerial vehicles manufacturer under the unsubstantiated and disproven pretext that the Islamic Republic has provided Russia with the UAVs to be used by Moscow against Ukraine.
The United States Treasury Department slapped the sanctions on Friday against six executives and board members of Iran’s Quds Aviation Industries (QAI).
It described the targeted body as a key Iranian defense industry manufacturer responsible for designing and producing drones.
The Islamic Republic has, on repeated occasions, roundly rejected Washington’s allegations.
Last month, Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Ashtiani said Ukrainian officials had failed to provide any evidence for their claim that Russia was using Iranian drones in its February-present war on Ukraine.
The Iranian defense chief says Ukraine failed to present any proof of Russia’s alleged use of Iranian drones in the Ukraine war.
Speaking following a technical meeting between Ukrainian and Iranian specialists, he said the Ukrainian side had stopped short of “presenting any evidence” during the meeting “of Russia’s use of Iranian drones in the war with this country.”
A month earlier, Iran’s Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian had also reacted to the US and other Western countries’ allegations, noting that Iran had provided Russia with a limited number of drones, but the delivery had taken place months before the war in Ukraine.
The U.S. Treasury Department, however, alleged, “We will continue to use every tool at our disposal to deny [Russian President Vladimir] Putin the weapons that he is using….”
The Friday sanctions also targeted the director of Iran’s Aerospace Industries Organization, which the Treasury claimed, was the key organization responsible for overseeing Iran’s ballistic missile programs.
In July 2021, The Wall Street Journal reported that the US was planning a sanctions campaign against Iran’s defensive drones and guided missiles program, six months after the administration of President Joe Biden was sworn in.
Citing unnamed U.S. officials, the daily said the sanctions were aimed at disrupting the development of Iran’s weapons program, which, the Islamic Republic has invariably defined as a purely defensive program, which does not pose any threat to any foreign country.
So we see the U.S. administration either a Republican or Democrat President seeks some pretext to continue its addiction of imposing sanctions against Iran in order it may bring down the Islamic Republic of Iran but as the Supreme Leader of Iran has reiterated recently, the Islamic of Iran has turned into a big and strong tree that nobody is able to bring it down and Americans are better to look for new tool and addiction because its current addiction of imposing sanctions is getting boring and they have become ineffective and other countries also follow the path of the Islamic Revolution to make ineffective the U.S. sanctions.
So the U.S. is better to entertain its people and allies with other game and addiction because it will be unable to defeat the strong determination of nations either with war or sanctions or any other kind of new plot or addiction, as the Islamic Republic of Iran has proved it to the world.
