One of the first shots fired by the EU was in the form of increased sanctions to boycott Iranian oil in about five months.
Ergo, end the mission. Initiate Plan B.
At issue is regime change and isolating Iran, not democracy and peace. America deplores both and won't tolerate them at home or abroad.
On January 23, EU representative for foreign and security affairs, Catherine Ashton, broke the news. She announced an "unprecedented" anti-Iranian oil embargo, effective July 1 and immediately from new contracts.

Europe buys up to 20% of its oil from Iran. Ending it means greater strain on economically stressed countries. Making up lost volume won't be easy. Putting lipstick on this pig doesn't wash.
Despite postponing the parliamentary debate, Rostam Qasemi, Iran's energy minister, promised that exports to some countries, which he did not name, would be ended "soon".

Or, the fact that 49% of Americans now live in a home where at least one person receives a government benefit; that's a 44% increase.
And possibly the most telling statistic: 46 million Americans who need food stamps to support themselves or their family. That is a 45% increase in just 4 years!
