Bridenstine Urges Actions to Stop Iran from Avoiding Sanctions
In a move designed to protect Israel from Iranian aggression, and coinciding with President Obama’s visit to Israel this week, Congressman Jim Bridenstine is urging actions to stop Iran from evading economic sanctions. Tehran continues to flout UN resolutions aimed at stopping its missile and nuclear programs. Iran “re-flags” its oil tankers and cargo vessels under different countries, thus hiding their true identity from unsuspecting importers. U.S. sanctions have progressively damaged Iran’s economy, particularly its oil and natural gas exports, yet Tehran still avoids some sanctions by this illegal maneuver.
