President Trump has exhausted most of his options to deal with Iran according to an article from The Wall Street Journal.
Mr. Trump is close to exhausting options for adding financial pressure on Iran. The Trump administration already has imposed some of the most stringent sanctions ever on Iran’s oil industry, refused to extend oil waivers and threatened secondary sanctions on entities that fail to comply.
It has also already designated Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as a foreign terrorist organization. The IRGC runs Tehran’s ballistic-missile programs and its specialized Quds Force has arranged weapons deliveries and advised proregime militias in Syria, Iraq and elsewhere in the region.
The situation with Iran is getting tricker and tricker as the days go on. President Trump has done a great job of keeping the Neo-Cons from taking over his foreign policy decisions. By using financial means he has been able to stay tough on Iran while not going to war. However, as the Wall Street Journal pointed out there is only so much Trump can do without going to war.
The next step for Trump(which his administration has hinted at) should be trying to meet with Iranian leaders. After meeting he will have officially used all other options and then he will have broad support for a war with Iran.
