21. Thanks for posting. As for the closed Iraq bases, who knows what the truth is.

With some wild-eyed candidates (republicans) who are ready to launch missiles at Iran, and with President Obama signing the bill on Saturday that targets Iran's central bank as part of the West's efforts to pressure Tehran over its nuclear program - well, another who knows what might happen to incite another war.

The United States and Israel have not ruled out military action against Iran if diplomacy fails to resolve the Islamic state's nuclear row with the West.

The European Union is considering following the United States in banning imports of Iranian crude oil. U.S. President Barack Obama signed new sanctions against Iran into law on Saturday, stepping up the pressure by adding sanctions on financial institutions that deal with Iran's central bank.

Meanwhile, Iran said the new record low of the national currency to the U.S. dollar was not linked to the latest sanctions from the United States targeting the country's central bank.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast on Tuesday insisted there "is no relation" between the two. He said the American sanctions "have yet to be put into practice."
