American UN Envoy Haley: Sanctions Are ‘Suffocating’ Iran

US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley told Fox News on Wednesday that President Donald Trump’s new sanctions on Iran were “suffocating” the Tehran regime and the administration would not permit the Islamic Republic “to have any nuclear programs.”

Speaking with anchor Bret Baier, Haley asserted that Iran was “feeling the pain” from Trump’s sanctions, enacted in August.

“They feel weak and we are suffocating them to the point that they have to address ballistic missiles; they have to address their support on terrorism,” Haley said.

She added that the US was fully behind ongoing anti-regime protests in Iran.

“Our focus right now is on the Iranian people,” she stated. “I mean, they have protested, they have spoken out, they have said they want a better life.”

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
