They really need to hurry up and finish the pipeline between the UAE and Oman. Once that's completed, Iran will literally have no leverage at all

The US says it wants to create an international military coalition to safeguard waters around Iran and Yemen.

Marine Gen Joseph Dunford, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, said he wanted to "ensure freedom of navigation" in the region, which provides essential trade routes.

The US has blamed Iran for attacks on oil tankers in May and June.

Gen Dunford said the US was talking to a number of countries with the "political will" to support the plans.

Iran faces "economic terrorism" from the United States with its "sadistic" sanctions, a Tehran official said on Wednesday.

Kazem Gharib Abadi, Iranian ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), made the comments in Vienna during an emergency meeting called by the US after Tehran breached the landmark 2015 nuclear deal this week.

"The United States has imposed economic terrorism against some states, including through imposition of sanctions and extraterritorial application of them," Gharib Abadi said at the meeting of the UN's nuclear watchdog.

"The sadistic tendency of the United States to use illegal, unilateral sanctions as an instrument to coerce sovereign states and private entities should come to an end," he said.
Russia's Ambassador to the IAEA Mikhail Ulyanov said after the meeting the US "was practically isolated on this issue".

He told the assembled diplomats it was an "oddity" the meeting had been called by the US, "the country that declared the JCPOA to be a terrible deal".

"In practice, it turns out that Washington is aware of the importance of the [JCPOA]," said Ulyanov.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said it was ironic the meeting was called by the US, given it had withdrawn from the nuclear deal last year and "punishes all who observe it".

President Donald Trump has repeated the United States' threat to ratchet up sanctions on Tehran and again denounced the 2015 nuclear deal Iran signed with world powers.

Trump's latest threat came via a tweet on Wednesday as the UN nuclear watchdog held an emergency meeting to discuss Iran's nuclear programme.

"Iran has long been secretly 'enriching,' in total violation of the terrible 150 Billion Dollar deal made by John Kerry and the Obama Administration. Remember, that deal was to expire in a short number of years. Sanctions will soon be increased, substantially!" Trump tweeted without elaborating or offering evidence.

Interesting phrase, "sadistic." Perhaps he is saying more than he meant to.

It is interesting that Israel raports say something different that IAEA official reports.
Timing is interesting
The IAEA has found signs of radioactive material that would violate the 2015 nuclear deal at an Iranian nuclear site identified to the agency by Israeli intelligence, Channel 13 reported on Thursday.

According to Channel 13, top Israeli sources revealed that the IAEA is sitting on the information and has avoided making it public to date.
