US Treasury Dept imposes new Iran-related sanctions on 2 individuals and a company in Iraq

RT | June 12, 2019

The US Treasury Department announced sanctions on Wednesday against two Iraq-based persons and one company, for their alleged links to Iran’s Revolutionary Guard.

Makki Kazim and Mohammed Hussein, along with the South Wealth Resources Company have all been hit with secondary sanctions, according to the Treasury Department website.

Secondary sanctions form a major part of US international statecraft, cutting off businesses and individuals from the US financial system and tarnishing their reputations with international businesses and banks. A number of measures can be enforced against targeted individuals, ranging from limiting their ability to do business in the US to prohibiting all US parties from conducting business with them.

  1. It might be a good idea for the USA to stop obsessing about Iran(And boot Bolton out), and just go back to being a Reasonable World Citizen. Iran is NOT the Problem……The Military Industrial Complex IS the problem.

  2. I note the words “alleged links.” That “alleged” is apparently all that is needed to allow the goddam Zionist/dual citizens/neocons/Israel-firsters who populate this Treasury unit to put the screws to anyone and his or her brother or sister–as long as they are Muslim Arab or Muslim Irani. No screws applied, of course, to the foremost state-terroristic entity around the globe: the effing Jewish-Zionist monster so-called Israel [recall the just-passed anniversary of the massacre of the USS Liberty and the myriad crimes-against-humanity terrorism inflicted serially on the hapless Palestinians].

    Re “US international statecraft”: how novel (of RT, yet…tongue in cheek, one hopes) to apply this generally elegant and benign term to a regime (badly needing change) that has the “(un)diplomatic-statecraft” ilk of Pompeo, Pence, and Bolton for starters (not to mention Trump and the cohort of Zionist Jews who surround him and applaud-and-exploit his own decidedly non-“statecraft” bullying persona and tactics.
