To dispel detrimental sanctions on their IRR, the Islamist Rapist Republic, from time to time the usual suspects come out with the nonsense about sanctions denying medicine to the Iranian people.
In at least one occasion these attempts has backfired. American embassy in Germany has reacted to such reports. In a letter to the Persian Service of Germany’s Deutsche Welle radio, the Embassy in part states:
“Just as always, the American government is issuing licenses for the sale of medicine and medical supplies to Iran. Even in the current round of sanctions against Iran, there are no provisions on restricting the sale of medicine and medical supplies to Iran.”
To further clarify the situation, Deutsche Welle has interviewed Dr. Ghasemmi, the chairman of Iranian kidney transplantation society.
Apparently rather than sanctions having anything to do with it, the problem stems from greedy “multinational pharmaceutical companies”.
But during the interview the caring Doctor makes a revealing appeal. He asks the radio station to see if it could arrange for the donation of discarded German kidney dialysis machines to Iran. He says kidney machines are routinely replaced every three to five years in Germany but in Iran they use such donated machines for up to fifteen years.
To emphasis the need for the donation he goes further and says nationwide his society has one hundred and forty chapters and nearly fifteen clinics.
Iran is not a poor country; it certainly can afford to buy few hundred badly needed brand new kidney dialysis machines every three to five years. There should be no need to subject the proud Iranians to looking for handouts of discarded machines.
Aren’t the Islamist Rapists who spent lavishly on their ruinous weaponized nuke program and its supporters accountable for this travesty?
Aren’t they effectively sanctioning medicine and medical supplies to the Iranian people?
There was a time when Rafsanjani’s gang had the monopoly on the importation of such supplies; medicine is in whose turf nowadays?
