The oil Embargo of Iran

  1. They're going to shit if Iran decides to quit shipping to the EU.

    ReplyDelete
  2. The Euros can't make it up with Saudi Crude, because all the Saudi "spare capacity" is Heavy, Sour.

    The Sauds could, possibly, get some of that stuff refined in Houston, and Port Arthur, for shipment to Europe; but, that'll take a while to set up (plus a lot of shipping time involved.

    Once again, China comes out smelling like a rose. And, we exude the sweet aroma of the "organic fertilizer."

  3. They have said Iran can't ship to the EU.

    And the commentator is saying, this stupidity, which is against the EU and the American interest too, is brought to us all by -- Washington.

    That is, by the usurper.

  6. This thing is really interesting - at least to me, the hick from Idaahoooo

    Hatfield told WND that he specifically asked the judge at the end of the hearing to close the record, and he did that. Hatfield said that should make it clear that as the decision is made, and any challenges progress, no new information can be added to the evidence already submitted.


    Here below is Donofrio, telling us, say, folks, this is really serious --

    “That President Obama’s attorneys didn’t show respect for the court, the citizens, the secretary of state, and the statutes of Georgia reveals the true character of the administration as being completely and utterly against state’s rights,” said attorney Leo Donofrio. “The federal government is growing out of control with every administration and this action today is a loud announcement that this administration is going to do what it likes, and you can imagine that their response to this judiciary would be exactly the same if this had been the U.S. Supreme Court.”

    He said if Georgia does decide to keep Obama off its state election ballots, he (Obama) won’t appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, “because if he were to lose there, his entire administration would be void, including his appointments to the Supreme Court.”

    “If Obama were to appeal in Georgia, only this election is in play, and only as to Georgia’s ballots, but if he loses in Georgia, appealing to the SCOTUS brings in his entire eligibility, and the legitimacy of his current administration,” Donofrio warned.

    “My personal belief is that if the U.S. Supreme Court held that he was ineligible, he might simply ignore the ruling, and test the will of the nation, just as he is testing the will of the state of Georgia,” he said.

  7. Here is the incentive for any country, including Iran, to get a nuclear weapon.


    Economic sanctions by the European Union and the United States can only be allowed a limited time period to prevent Iran from attempting to acquire a nuclear arsenal before a military strike must be contemplated, Israeli leaders have declared.

    The tough public stance from Tel Aviv comes amid conflicting reports on the readiness of the Israeli military establishment to carry out an attack on Iran.

    One account claims that Israel's security agencies have concluded that the turmoil predicted from a strike, and the likely response from Tehran, has been widely exaggerated. However, a senior British official told The Independent that the hierarchy of the intelligence service, Mossad, and the armed forces continued to have deep trepidation about conflict in the region.

    Speaking at the Davos economic summit yesterday, the Israeli Defence Minister, Ehud Barak, yesterday warned that a situation could be rapidly reached when even "surgical" military action could not block the Tehran regime from getting the bomb. "We will know early enough whether the Iranians are ready to give up their nuclear weapons," following measures such as the recently announced EU oil embargo, he said.

  11. boobie, they down play the nuclear weapon angle, because there is no proof that the Iranians have a program to weaponize their nuclear capacities.

    There are rumors and bogus reports, according to the Russians and Chinese. There were no "New" claims in the last IAEA report, just a rehash of the old rumors and reports.

    Which had been discounted, by US, under the Bush Administration.

    Yep, i the Iranians embargo the flow to Greece, Italy and Spain, the EU is in the shits.

  12. Who pays for the economic train wreck if Israel gets the US involved with another needless war with Iran or if US politicians are stupid enough to initiate it themselves? You do!

    DAVOS, Switzerland — Economist Nouriel Roubini, nicknamed "Dr. Doom" for his gloomy predictions in the run-up to the financial meltdown four years ago, says the fallout from that crisis could last the rest of this decade.
    Roubini, widely acknowledged to have predicted the crash of 2008, sees tough times ahead for the global economy and is warning that without major policy changes things can still get much worse.
    He also warned that a conflict with Iran over its controversial nuclear program could lead to a global recession.
    Until Europe radically reforms itself and the U.S. gets serious about its own debt mountain, Roubini said, the world economy will continue to stumble along to the detriment of large chunks of the world's population who will continue to see their living standards under pressure, even if they have a job.

  13. The Fed has already determined that all the chumps that saved their money will get no interest for the next two years. Nothing. That will be five years of little of no interest on savings while the government debases the value of the currency. Oil will sky rocket and everything based on it including food and transportation will become more costly. Iran is no threat to the lives of ordinary Americans. Going broke is.

  14. “The red lines included any indications of sanctions, the red lines included any sort of imposition of arms embargo - because we know how in real life arms embargo means you supply arms to illegal groups but you cannot supply weapons to the government - we cannot accept that," he said. "Unfortunately, the draft we saw today did not only ignore our red lines but also added some new elements which we find unacceptable as a matter of principle.”

    The Russian envoy said the Arab League plan, which includes the transfer of power from President Bashar al-Assad to a deputy in preparation for multi-party elections, imposes a certain outcome of political dialogue before that dialogue even starts.

    “We need to concentrate on establishing political dialogue," he said. "The Arab League may have its ideas about where that political dialogue should go, they are free to express those ideas, but certainly the Security Council cannot be a tool to impose specific solutions on countries, including in this particular situation, Syria.”

    He said Moscow does not see the new draft text as one on which they could agree, but said they would be willing to engage in negotiations.

  15. You have to listen to the incoherence of the Israeli argument expressed in this little speech by Ehud Barak:


    Israel's deputy prime minister and defence minister Ehud Barak has called for the international community to toughen up sanctions against Iran as he warned that Tehran's nuclear weapons programme would lead to proliferation, the spread of terrorism and a threat to oil supplies from the Middle East.

    In a session at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Barak said: "You can't conceive of a stable world order when Iran has nuclear weapons."

    He added: "Iran is prepared to defy and deceive the whole world to turn themselves into a nuclear power. This will be the end of any conceivable anti-proliferation programme. Major powers in the region will feel compelled to turn nuclear."

    Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Egypt would respond to Iran arming itself with nuclear weapons with programmes of their own, Barak said.

    Yukiya Amano, the director-general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, said he was sending a team to Iran on Saturday, adding he was convinced that Tehran was seeking to establish a nuclear weapons capability.

    Iran has insisted its nuclear programme is for non-military purposes, but Amano said: "Our information is credible. Iran is engaged in activities relevant to the development of nuclear explosives. We have asked for talks and we are meeting with them."

    Barak said Iran wanted hegemony over oil resources from the Gulf region and said Tehran was secretly working towards a position where it would be able to arm itself with nuclear weapons. "Iran is trying to intimidate and coerce neighbouring Gulf states", he said.

    "It is the time for much tougher diplomacy and sanctions because there is a risk not just to Israel but to the whole world. It will be much more complicated, much more dangerous and much more costly if we allow it to happen."

    It would have been impossible for the west to topple Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi had they been armed with even small nuclear arsenals, he added.


    1. Israel having a nuclear weapon monopoly is good. Israel claims Iran want hegemony over oil. That is bad.

    2. The reason any country would want a nuclear weapon is because it has been proven to be a deterrent. Israel believes that and has nuclear weapons. Barak says:It would have been impossible for the west to topple Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi had they been armed with even small nuclear arsenals,

    The idiot is arguing for Iran’s case, he is stating that it would have been impossible for Iraq and Libya to have been attacked by NATO and the US if Iraq and Libya had nuclear deterrence!

    Barak also opines that Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Egypt would respond to Iran arming itself with nuclear weapons with programmes of their own, Barak said. Gee, how did they figure that out? It just isn’t fair that any country, except Israel of course, should want to have the only proven deterrence to outside attack, nuclear weapons.

    The reality is that Israel, as an undeclared and unregulated nuclear power is the motivational force that will ultimately influence Iran, Egypt, Turkey and Saudi Arabia to acquire nuclear weapons. An attack by Israel and the US on Iran will hasten the day and build the stockpile higher.

    Don’t do as I do, do as I say., always a winning argument.

  18. Now of course , I'm only an arm chair General, but here is what I would advise President Obama to do.

    Firstly, we certainly have to prepare for war and this build-up will take at least one month at the soonest. We don't want to block the Strait of Hormuz because so much of the world is dependent on the oil that passes through that narrow inlet! My first order would be to have our carrier based jets paint their surface radar. Then, I would utilize the whole Sixth Fleet to fire a barrage of missles to take out their command and control radar and communications sites. Simultaneously, I would strike their comms. and computers with a DOS(denial of service attack) and set off a manageble "tactical nuclear weapon" in the atmosphere to further decimate their C and C capabilities and all other electronic capabilities. I would simultaneouly have my B-1's and bombers loaded with JDAM's and decapitate all existing C and C facilities, tv and radio stations and comm facilities remaining.

    The following fourteen days would consist of reevaluation and a constant barrage of Patriot missles fired from land and sea in conjuction with precision targeting from Naval offshore guns!

    I think you get the message. I would prosecute real WAR, a standoff war, and not the first American boy would lose his blood on a foreign shore! SO HELP ME GOD!

  20. ***The rhetoric of war is radicalizing the foreign policy environment in the United States, and empowering the hawks on both sides of the conflict.

    ***Promising military action to stop Iran has become a central campaign strategy by Republican presidential contenders.

    ***Toughness and readiness to wage war is becoming a prerequisite for victory in 2012, pushing the Obama Administration towards a riskier approach towards Iran.

    ***The Iranian government is using the threat of war with the United States to repress its internal opposition and further reaffirm its grip over the society.

    ***The pro-government media in Iran is inundated with proclamations of victory of the Islamic Republic in the case of a war with the U.S. and its allies.

    ***Although the Iranian regime avoided actual confrontation with the United States in the past, the situation is substantially different now.

    *** Embattled by factional struggles, and weakened by an ailing economy, the dominant faction of the regime may welcome a limited war with the United States.

    ***The road between a war of words and covert actions, and a real military confrontation may prove too short.

    ***The Strait of Hormuz has become an ammunition depot ready to explode by deliberate action, or a simple misjudgment.

    ***Meanwhile, there is no echo of the voices of the Iranian people in the media and policy circles. Their opinions of war and peace remain absent in the discussion of the conflict.

    ***Israel is smiling.

  42. Echoing President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who said on Thursday that Europe would be the loser from its sanctions policy, the hardline cleric leading Friday prayers at Tehran university jibed: "Why wait six months, why not right away? The answer is clear. They are in trouble; they are grappling with crisis."

    That comment from Ahmad Khatami indicated the pre-emptive export ban is backed by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

    The EU accounted for 25 percent of Iranian crude oil sales in the third quarter of 2011. But China, India and others have made clear that they are keen to soak up any spare Iranian oil, even as U.S. Treasury measures to choke Tehran's dollar trade make it harder to pay for supplies.

    SANCTIONS

    Highlighting the difficulties of securing global sanctions when many governments, including Russia and China, question their value or say they will only harden Iranian defiance, Turkish state-controlled Halkbank, a key player in handling payments for Iranian oil, said it would keep on doing so.

    A manager at the bank told Reuters that, as far as it was concerned, it was not in breach of U.S. financial sanctions.

    The EU's response was muted, saying that Iran's intentions had been reported. "We want to see Iran coming back to the negotiating table, engaging in meaningful discussion on confidence-building measures and demonstrate the willingness to address concerns over its nuclear program, without preconditions," said Maja Kocijancic, spokeswoman for EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton.

    So you would propose doing 'anything' rather than not do anything even if the 'anything' could make matters much worse in the hopes of solving a problem a good portion of American's aren't convinced is a a major problem or, at least, not an existential one.

    Who is Saul Alinsky, and why is Newt Gingrich so obsessed with him?

    “His tactics when it comes to grass-roots organizing are incredibly effective,”


    FreedomWorks spokesman Adam Brandon told the Wall Street Journal.

    Tea Partyers aggressively confronting lawmakers at town hall meetings is straight from Alinsky’s playbook.

    Conservative icon William F. Buckley Jr. called the Chicago radical "very close to being an organizational genius."

    As a former history professor, Gingrich not only understands Alinsky’s motif, he’s made it a key part of his campaign.

    “Gingrich's clashes against the establishment are classic Alinsky,”
    writes Philip Klein, senior editorial writer for the conservative Washington Examiner.
