US sanctions against Iran purely political

Behind the facade of legality, America’s sanction laws are usually no more than the conduct of foreign policy by other means. When it comes to Iran, it is blatantly obvious. One can only shake one’s head when American prosecutors go after foreigners with long jail time while portraying them as criminals for breaching US-imposed sanctions.

So get ready for a long-drawn-out extradition fight against Huawei’s No 2 Sabrina Meng Wanzhou in Canada. It must be noted that the Chinese telecoms’ alleged sanction violations occurred before the Iranian nuclear deal and the savage Saudi air war in Yemen. Still, it pays to keep in mind the geopolitical background of the off-again, on-again Iranian sanctions, which, to put it indelicately, stink to high heaven.

Unless you are a Muslim or live in the Middle East, there isn’t much........
