Prune juice can help with that, old man.  A drink approved by the Klingons.

Iran said the path to a diplomatic solution with the U.S. had closed after the Trump administration imposed sanctions against its supreme leader and other top officials, ramping up tensions further in the Middle East.

President Donald Trump on Monday put sanctions on Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and eight senior military commanders, that deny him and his office access to financial resources. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin also said financial restrictions would be imposed on Iran’s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif later this week.

“The futile sanctions against the Iranian leader and the country’s chief diplomat mean the permanent closure of the diplomatic path with the government of the United States,” foreign ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi was quoted as saying by semi-official Iranian Students News Agency. “The Trump government is in the process of destroying all the established international mechanisms for the maintaining global peace and security.”

Cool.

Hard to say what will happen.  Too many different cultures and politics involved.  China for example has to be a frenemy ... since they hate Muslims.

I would be happy for the Muslims to simply stop pumping oil and gas for a year, take a breather from their competition.  The rest of us can walk.

I don't believe that the US actions are crucial in any case, it is important that the US "seem" influential".  That is the problem with branding.

In the event that Iran tests a nuclear device, or before that, Israel will destroy them.  And that will be the end of the world, with or without the US.

The alternative is for Pakistan to supply nuclear weapons to Saudi Arabia.  To equalize the situation.  That would be jolly.

Actual journalism ...

Iran is a special case ...

Congress gave the right to have "endless wars" in the Middle East

They even called it "the long war."

That is why we have a permanent war.  That way, we never have to tell the truth again.  Perfect for politics!
