Liberty vs. Leviathan

Chronicling Liberty's battle against Leviathan

Winds of more war

If goods don’t cross borders, armies will. ~~ attributed to Frederic Bastiat

In 1941, Roosevelt “…closed the Panama Canal to Japanese shipping, seized Japanese assets in the United States, and placed a truly effective embargo on shipments of petroleum products, iron, steel, and metal products – restrictions that were sure to infuriate the military-dominated government in Tokyo.”

~ Robert B. Stinnett, Day of Deceit, p. 120

…support of sanctions on foreign companies that: export refined petroleum products, including gasoline, to Iran; help maintain Iran’s domestic refining capacity; provide ships or shipping services to transport such products; underwrite those shipments to Iran; or finance or broker those shipments. Although these proposed sanctions are a serious start, we urge you to consider other, targeted sanctions as may be required to demonstrate our seriousness to the Iranian regime.

~ 47 Christian leaders, amazingly “on behalf of millions of Christians”, urging the Senate to pass economic sanctions against Iran
