US announces forfeiture of Iranian oil and missiles seized on the way to Yemen, Venezuela
“The two forfeiture complaints allege sophisticated schemes by the IRGC to secretly ship weapons to Yemen and fuel to Venezuela, countries that pose grave threats to the security and stability of their regions. These actions represent the government’s largest-ever civil seizures of fuel and weapons from Iran. Iran continues to be a leading state sponsor of terrorism and a worldwide destabilizing force,” John Demers, the assistant attorney general for the DOJ’s national security division, said on Thursday, adding, “these cases also highlight that enforcement of the sanctions against Iran remains one of the department’s national security priorities. For the last several years, cases involving Iran’s efforts to evade the restrictions designed to curb its malign conduct comprise more than 40 percent of the export control and sanctions prosecutions that the department brings.”
If Biden wins the election next week these rogue regimes may get away with their threats to the regions. The Obama-Biden administration did the terrible deal with Iran that put it on a glide path to nuclear weapons that would feed its genocidal thirst.
