US House war hawks write to Pompeo over UN arms embargo on Iran

Press TV – May 3, 2020

US lawmakers have written a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, urging him to take “increased diplomatic action” not to allow a United Nations arms embargo on Iran to expire in October.

“We write to urge increased diplomatic action by the United States to renew the expiring United Nations arms embargo against Iran and United Nations travel restrictions on those Iranian individuals involved with dangerous proliferation activities,” Hundreds of House lawmakers claimed in a letter released by The Hill. “America must continue its longstanding, bipartisan leadership in order to limit Iran’s destabilizing activities throughout the world… We look forward to working with you to reauthorize these expiring UN restrictions, which are essential to protecting our national security and the American people.”

The US claims that Washington has not quit the Iran nuclear deal and technically remains a “participant state.” The scheme is aimed at using a mechanism embedded within the Iran nuclear deal to make the UN restore a previously lifted arms embargo on Tehran.

The latest anti-Iran scheme was spearheaded by Democratic House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel and committee ranking member Michael McCaul.

“Nearly every member of the US House of Representatives is in agreement: Iran must not be allowed to buy or sell weapons,” McCaul claimed in a statement. “This isn’t a Republican or Democrat issue, or even just an American issue. We need to extend the UN arms embargo on Iran for the sake of international peace and security. I am proud the House is speaking with one voice to protect the world against Iran’s aggressive and destabilizing behavior.”

President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew the US from the Iran nuclear deal in 2018 and re-imposed harsh sanctions on Iran.

“US Security Council Resolution 2231 is unambiguous where the United States is a participant,” Pompeo claimed at a press briefing Wednesday. “We are going to make sure that come October of this year, the Iranians aren’t able to buy conventional weapons that they would be given what President Obama and Vice President Biden delivered to the world in that terrible deal.”

Tehran has called the allegation that the US is still a member of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action “a joke.”

  1. “America must continue its longstanding, bipartisan leadership in order to limit Iran’s destabilizing activities throughout the world…”

    What a load of “Bovine Excreta”!! ….”U.S. Lawmakers” presumably, members of Congress? are supposed to we working for America, not telling the rest of the World how to behave, particularly when the term, “Iran’s destabilising activities throughout the World is absolutely baseless!!. The term could be used to describe the activities of the Military Industrial Complex though………
    The USA Congress is is nothing more than a totally corrupted organisation, always sticking its nose in where it is NOT WANTED….or NEEDED.

  2. “Hundreds of House lawmakers…”: Natch: hundreds of US lawmakers are in bed, effin’ with the Zionists who own them and screw them and to whom US taxpayers’ dollars in the multi-billions are doled out for “services rendered.”

    “…spearheaded by Democratic House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel….” Natch: Engel is a Jew, a Zionist, a fifth-column agent in charge of a foreign-affairs dually-loyal-to-a-foreign-master” appendage committing de facto treason against the core national-security interests of the USA.

    “(McCaul). ‘This isn’t a Republican or Democrat issue, or even just an American issue. We need to extend the UN arms embargo on Iran for the sake of international peace and security. I am proud the House is speaking with one voice to protect the world against Iran’s aggressive and destabilizing behavior.’ ” Effing hypocrite. Effing as*hole. Effing pot-calling-the-kettle-black Zionist black’ard.

    How bad is all that? (Oh–it gets worse: the letter recipient, Porky Pompeo, is an uber-‘Christian’ Zionist, yet another traitor who cares not a damn about his “home” country. Porky is allegiant to a foreign monster-enemy as he awaits “rapture” to a “heaven” that I pray will in fact be Hell for Eternity populated by fellow Zionists.)

    6000 cars are waiting in line for free food. Yes, the cars look new, How can 35
    million people in a nation awash with cash, a nation with a massive and bloated
    military, a government that drops bails of cash to its terrorist and druglord allies
    around the world, how can that nation allow its people to starve?

    • I have been accused of being anti American for my comments on this site, but this is exactly what I am on about. The totally corrupted American Political system has allowed the “1%” to benefit(since Globalisation) while the American people have to stand in line for food, to survive. (And the “Trickle Down” has turned out to be what the Rich do, by pi..sing on the American people), while they become obesely rich.
      Apparently there are many thousands of American people living on the street these days, discarded and abandoned by their own government. It is a disgrace to a country that calls itself a Christian Nation, but ignores the suffering of its own people.
