Trump: U.S. will immediately impose new sanctions on Iran in response to missile attacks on U.S. military bases in Iraq

President Donald Trump is making bold moves against Iran, in response to its missile attacks on military bases housing U.S. troops in Iraq, and threatening new sanctions against the Middle Eastern country unless it changes its behavior.

In an address to the nation Wednesday,  Trump said the U.S. will immediately impose new economic sanctions against Iran after the missile attacks — insisting those sanctions will remain until U.S. demands are met, while urging other countries to make the world a safer place.

“Iran must abandon its nuclear ambitions and end its support for terrorism. The time has come for the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Russia and China to recognize this reality. They must now break away from the remnants of the Iran deal or JCPOA.”

The government said Iranian General QassemSoleimani was actually planning more attacks against the U.S. just days before he was killed by the U.S. airstrike.

Meanwhile, Trump also asked ask NATO to become more involved in the Middle East.

“The civilized world must send a clear and unified message to the Iranian regime: your campaign of terror, murder, mayhem will not be tolerated any longer. It will not be allowed to go forward.”

Trump concluded his speech on wednesday by saying that united states is ready to embrace peace and all who seek it. Lexi?

    In response to the IRAN-OBAMA funded missile attack on 2 US bases in IRAQ, with no casualties, TRUMP decided to CANCEL his counter attack. Remember the Dems-Obama gave IRAN $150 Billion and $1.7B in CASH. ECONOMIC sanctioned followed. TRUMP planned counter-attack was to target economic sites, like Bombed all OIL Fields, all Power electric Plant, and all CRUISE Missile sites. From there IRANIAN will go hungry, until they overthrow the AYATOLLAH. But he gave chance IRAN to come out to negotiate. TRUMP demand is for Iran to STOP enriching Uranium to make a Bomb. Reason: Obama signed the JCPOA, to allow IRAN to built an A-BOMB by 2025. TRUMP withdrew from JCPOA, Reason; ONCED IRAN will build his Bomb, all ARAB nations will also build their Bomb, and the world will never be safe to live anymore.EXAMPLE: India-Pakistan OWN a NUKE Bomb, one mistake by the people, voting a violent President it will end up to NUKE War, how much more the ARABs nations in the ME, they always fighting.
