American lawmakers have decided on a new solution to the problem that Iran poses to the Middle East and the free world. The Times of Israel's Richard Lardner reports that the U.S. House has approved a bill for new sanctions on the Islamic Republic because of its ongoing ballistic missile program:

The Republican-led House of Representatives overwhelmingly approved bipartisan legislation Thursday that would slap new sanctions on Iran for its pursuit of long-range ballistic missiles without derailing the 2015 international nuclear accord that US President Donald Trump has threatened to unravel.

Lawmakers voted 423-2 to pass the measure...
