It is becoming quite clear that President Trump’s decision to depart from the Iran nuclear deal was just the first step in the White House’s plan of action against the regime in Tehran. The administration is employing all of America’s instruments of national power to isolate and defang the mullahs.
European allies, and even America’s adversaries, are falling in line behind aggressive U.S. policies against the Iranian regime, which are backed by sanctions intended to cut off Tehran from the global trade market.
On Tuesday, the Russian oil giant Lukoil announced that it would not go forward on energy development projects in Iran. This strikes a massive blow to the regime in Tehran, which used to be able to count on Russia as a solid ally.
Lukoil’s announcement goes to show that many of the Iranian regime’s business partners — regardless of whether their headquarters are based in allied or adversarial nations — have conducted a cost-benefit analysis and concluded that they do not want to be on the wrong side of U.S. sanctions.
