Turning on Trump-era sanctions out of political play is one thing, but President Biden’s effort to overturn any semblance of Trump on an international stage is now putting the lives of Americans, and international allies, in danger.
On Friday it was announced that the Biden White House will be lifting sanctions on an Iranian missile production company titled Mammut Industrial Group — sanctions initially implemented by the previous administration to mitigate risk of potential nuclear weapons development by Middle Eastern terrorist forces.
According to The Daily Wire, omitting these sanctions comes at a time when Iran is allegedly accumulating “enough nuclear fuel to build a nuclear weapon.” Biden’s build bombs better agenda has been warned against by experts, with the Commander in Chief once again foregoing American intel — similar to the disastrous exit and retaliatory efforts in Kabul.
According to the report:
“The sanctions, targeting the Mammut Industrial Group (Mammut Industries) and its subsidiary Mammut Diesel, were originally imposed by the Trump administration in September 2020 as part of efforts to increase a maximum pressure campaign of sanctions on Tehran over its nuclear activity and actions in the region criticized as malign and destabilizing. The entities were identified as being ‘key producers and suppliers of military-grade, dual-use goods for Iran’s missile programs.'”
Both American intelligence and allies in Israel have been monitoring the developments, with Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett sounding the alarm on what a lack of oversight on Iran’s nuclear weapons production may lead to:
“All red lines have been crossed. Inspections — ignored. All wishful thinking — proven false,” announced the Prime Minister. “Iran is currently violating the IAEAs safeguard agreements — and it’s getting away with it. They harass inspectors and sabotage their investigations — and they’re getting away with it. They enrich Uranium to the level of 60 percent, which is only one step short of weapons-grade material — and they’re getting away with it.
“Evidence which clearly proves Iran’s intentions for nuclear weapons in secret sites in Turquzabad, Teheran & Marivan — is ignored. Iran’s nuclear program has hit a watershed moment. And so has our tolerance.”
