The comprehensive "active anti-sanctions plan" that has been compiled at the parliament research center after long studies and consultations with experts from Iranian research and academic centers, traders and entrepreneurs is now under study by senior Judiciary, Parliament and Government officials for a final editing.

The program that mainly aims to make the country "unsanctionable" has been developed in contrast to the US sanctions program and has reportedly been edited seven times so far, several MPs told FNA on Sunday.

Information obtained by FNA reveals the program offers a package that also involves social and cultural measures to reinvigorate the country's economy and infrastructure against the US sanctions that come into effect from 90 to 180 days after their re-imposition and seek to wear off Iran's economy step-by-step.

The plan also entails specific time-based nuclear, security and political leverages that would be enforced in reprisal for enemy threats, while it also envisages transient waivers that could be extended, halted or annulled based on relevant decisions by authorities.

JUST IN: Iran expected to put over 100 small boats in water over next 48 hours to practice annual “swarm” drill to block Strait of Hormuz: US officials. Annual drill appears bumped up from normal autumn time frame following fiery rhetoric from U.S. and Iranian leaders

Been following this, looks like Iran is loading a ton of gun powder to blow this popsicle stand. I'd like to see how they become "unsactioanable." The U.S. Navy is of course ready but what happens next will be interesting, especially if Netanyahu decides to poke Iran some more in Syria.

Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami urged the lawmakers to boost the country's defense budget, stressing that it will strengthen Iran's deterrence power.
"The committed experts of the defense industry are making their utmost efforts to enhance the country's defense power and therefore, today, the enemies of Islamic Iran who are fully aware of the powerful Iranian Armed Forces' defense and military capabilities do not speak of military options any more," General Hatami said, addressing the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission in Tehran on Wednesday.

He expressed the hope that the Commission would allocate more budget to the defense field, warning that the enemies are spending billions of dollars to foment insecurity and instability in the region and renovate and update their defense capacities.
