Great Satan US House passes anti-Islamic Iran sanctions bill

US House passes anti-Iran sanctions bill

The US House of Representatives has approved a bill of sanctions targeting Iran’s oil exports and other economic sectors including mining and automobile industries.

According to Press TV, the bill, which overwhelmingly passed 400-20 late on Wednesday, would cut Iran’s oil exports by one million barrels per day over a year.
The bill also blacklists any business in Iran’s mining and construction sectors and commits the United States to the goal of ending all Iranian oil sales worldwide by 2015.
The bill has yet to be approved in the Senate and signed by President Barack Obama to become law.
Prior to the vote a group of Democratic US lawmakers had launched a campaign to urge the Congress to postpone the bill.
They said “it would be counterproductive and irresponsible to vote on this measure before Iran’s new president Hassan Rohani is inaugurated on August 4, 2013.”
