Direct from the Tehran Times!!! So where else would you expect me to get this from? CNN? Nah


China continues buying Iranian LPG


According to Ship tracking data, Kpler estimates that at least five supertankers loaded Iranian LPG in May and June heading for China. That would equate to around $100 million of the gas, according to Bloomberg calculations. Chinese buyers turned to Iran after Beijing slapped a 25 percent tariff on the gas imports from U.S. last August as the trade tussle heated up between the two nations. Iran accounted for around a third of imports in April, before Donald Trump imposed new sanctions on the country in May, aiming to block its energy exports. To avoid running afoul of the U.S. sanctions, LPG importers in Asia’s largest economy would have to turn to more expensive supplies from elsewhere in the Middle East or Africa.

And the truly ironic part is since we're the world's ocean police they don't have to spend any money patrolling the Gulf and surrounding area. Win/win for China.

They're only watching out for their own ships, we watch out for everyone's ships.

It's not a law for other country's but if you ignore those sanctions the US pusnish that country.

Like with the EU recently who wanted to bypass the US sanctions got this warning:



"Entities that continue to engage in sanctionable activity involving Iran risk severe consequences that could include losing access to the US financial system and the ability to do business with the United States or US companies," he said.


Nice dictatorial behavior...

Funny how we only have a problem with countries who nationalize their oil and gas industries. Oh well. I'm sure it's just coincidence

Why should China, or any other country care about US sanctions?

The US wants Irans oil, we get it - just leave the rest of the world alone.

That will fall on deaf ears. Most of the US population is apathetic, uninformed, or buy into the government fear campaign about our "threats".

Since you are always shifting who seems [in your opinion] to get a better deal at the end of the trickle down economy, freedoms and lifestlye. A USA or Iran citizen?

I don't think oil is the end all be all. More about leveraging control in the region, serving allied interests, and having more of the market open up to the petro dollar.

Why would we want Iran's oil?
We haven't imported their oil in years.

Now safe passage of Saudi, Iraqi and Kuwaiti oil is a different story.

US citizen, and proud patriot.

If you take Bin Laden at his word, his mission was to drag the US into long wars in the Middle East to weaken us economically along with our reputation. So far it's looking like his mission is looking rather lucrative.
