Fake News? CNN Claims Iran Tried To Seize UK Tanker

Yesterday CNN was the sole source of an article accusing Iran's Revolutionary Guard of trying to seize a UK tanker in the Persian Gulf.

Trump In A Box: Iran Demands Right To Enrich 'To Any Level'

President Trump's withdrawal from the Iran deal continues to backfire, as he is discovering that the other side can also exert "maximum pressure." With the US out of the deal but still demanding a right to dictate the terms to those who remain in the deal, Iran is exercising its right within the deal to suspend abiding by the terms if other parties do the same.
