Iran Announces Sanctions on US Think Tank, Implies a Broader Threat

On Saturday, it was reported that Iran’s Foreign Ministry had imposed sanctions on the Washington-based think tank the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies. As well as underscoring a regime talking point which describes the US as being engaged in “economic terrorism,” the move is no doubt an example of Iranian retaliation against sanctions that have largely crippled the nation’s economy and prevented the export of an estimated 2.7 million barrels of oil per day.

This is to say that representatives of the latter faction, led by President Hassan Rouhani, have been contributing to the spread of confrontational and often militarist rhetoric right alongside hardline figures like Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and officers in the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.
