A bill to renew an Iran sanctions law and go after supporters of Syrian President Bashar Assad’s government has been approved by the House on Tuesday.

The bill calls for punishing those who financially back the Syrian government and “maintaining economic pressure on Tehran,” according to Associated Press.

The violence in Syria is in it’s sixth year and has seen almost 500,000 people killed. This has contributed to “Europe’s worst refugee crisis since World War II and given the Islamic State group room to grow into a global terror threat.” The Assad government now stands accused of war crimes.

Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee, Rep. Eliot Engel, stated, “What we have now is a grim lesson in human suffering. We can see the ethnic cleansing going on. Even the United Nations calls this ‘crimes of historic proportions.’ Enough’s enough.”

The bill would sanction countries like Russia and Iran that provide funding or do business with the Syrian government.

“Anyone that provides aircraft to Syria’s commercial airlines, does business with the transportation and telecom sectors controlled by the Syrian government, or supports the country’s energy industry also would be subject to sanctions, according to the legislation.”

Last month, Secretary of State John Kerry wanted an investigation into Russia and Syria for war crimes, “a move that escalated already heated rhetoric against Moscow for its part in a deadly military offensive in Aleppo, Syria’s largest city, and its longstanding support of Assad,” reports AP.

In 2014 a Syria defector testified before the Foreign Affairs Committee that he bore witness to a ‘genocidal massacre’ of over 10,000. He is said to have images of the slaughter.

Rep. Leonard Lance, R-N.J, stated, “Sanctions work. Now is not the time to ease up on the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism.”

President Barack Obama, according to Kerry, will sign the renewal bill. If approved the bill, which first passed Congress in 1996, will extend the law to 2026. If it is not signed it will expire come years’ end.

Should the bill be extended, the U.S. will be allowed to punish Iran if they fail to live up to the terms of last year’s Iran Nuclear Deal.

Should Tehran agree to rolling back its nuclear program, the U.S. and other world powers agreed to suspend wide-ranging oil, trade and financial sanctions that had choked the Iranian economy.”

The House cleared the Iran Sanctions Extensions Act by a vote of 419-1.

The only Congressional ‘No’ vote on the bill came from Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky.

  1. Wasn’t Syria one of the countries on the list of that the Globalist wanted to tear down, using the global puppets of the fraud regime of the US to supply and arm rebels and provide chem gas and contractors to cause havoc – killing thousands!
    Globalists Who Created Refugee Crisis Now Exploiting It
    ‘… the same globalists that created the tragic situation in the first place by destroying the countries their victims are fleeing from. Libya, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, and beyond all offer plenty of evidence showing that to be the case. The horrific consequences of the globalist establishment’s machinations, though — the genocide of Middle Eastern Christians, the emergence of savage terror groups such as the Islamic State (ISIS), the tsunami of refugees right now cascading into Europe, and more — are only just beginning. … Especially responsible are authorities in the United Kingdom and France, which enthusiastically supported the lawless war on Libya and later, the half-baked “Assad must go” policy.’ http://www.thenewamerican.com/world-news/europe/item/21536-globalists-who-created-refugee-crisis-now-exploiting-it

    ‘If you think that the US, EU, Arab mainstream media is accurately portraying the arab uprising, it is not the case. It is the luciferians ‘money-changers’ & the satanic Globalists masters that control the world news outlets.’

    What would it look like if America wasn’t used by the vile Globalist to be the ‘end game’ for people around the world and countries, America being in the their sites too. Another reason it’s good Helga’s out!

  2. FINALLY the Republicans in congress grew a pair and decided to do the right thing. This has been six months in coming and certainly is warranted! This is what happens when you let a globalist view lead the nation with no regard to American sovereignty and America’s best interests!

  3. Complete and utter Bull Excrement. Obama must be tried for treason, Kerry who is dumber than a box or rocks should do some time in prison. This will all be reversed shortly after Trump is sworn in.

  4. Including our President on down in the chain of command, none is above field grade officer. They take orders planned by those of flag grade through Henry, Zbigniev, maybe George S., and a few others. This blog and comments are a necessary part needed to make America great again.

  5. I don’t trust the man who calls himself Obama. Kerry is a fool and probably can’t tie his own shoelaces without assistance. This must be something to help his “muslim brothers” again. Besides, if they followed the letter of the law, they would have to arrest the man who calls himself Obama for aiding and abetting the Enemy. Am I right or am I right!? I hope that somehow President Trump can throw out 99% of what’s happened over the last 12+ years and start over.
