The Trump administration has stepped up its efforts to track tankers linked to China’s biggest state-run oil company in response to signs that the vessels are helping to transport Iranian crude in defiance of US sanctions against Tehran.
“They are hiding their activity,” Samir Madani, the co-founder of TankerTrackers.com, told the New York Times in July. “They don’t want to broadcast the fact that they have been in Iran, evading sanctions. It’s that simple.”


Apparently the reason is straightforward. US currently is sanctioning Iran as it prepares to attack, thus expect the rest of world to follow suit.

That way more oil is left for western contractors to acquire post-invasion. As has been incrementally done with various Mideast territories' oil in the past few decades.

Well, Iran was one of the dominoes. Just took a little longer than expected.

The biggest problem and major one, I might add, is ENERGY, with regards to china.

They don't have it and certainly not enough for a prolong war, that's a major US stronghold there.

So, what does this have to do with anything?

Iran represents one area where the US doesn't have a grip on and so business with Iran is two fold, buy or help apply maximum pressure in return for something, usually as a card for trade negotiations.

But, as luck would have it, Trump is no pushover and thus china has resumed its back door buyouts of iranian oil, but the articles main point is how china can balance this as it has "bigger fish to fry" when it comes to oil.

i get it now.

so china can't buy iran (or other sovereign oil nation's) oil.

but us can steal and stockpile it.

The US has never stole any oil.

Money is printed and then traded for the oil.

One must consider that "STOCKPILING" CRITICAL WAR RESOURCES IS SOMETHING THAT IS CLOSELY MONITORED WORLDWIDE AND ACCURATELY SO.... so there has to be slight of hand methods contrived to make steady volumes of these materials "disappear" so they can secretly be stockpiled without drawing attention from Global competitors.

A smart long term thinker would assure production resources were available to skip the need for the world marketplace ASAP...so they would buy or purchase or rent or lease these facilities LONG LONG before they planned on actually occupying the Country and expediting their own massive production quotas...the problem a Country like China has is MOVING....so they have to change their focuses...and they must plan far ahead...and ONLY MOVE PEOPLE THEIR BIGGEST RESOURCE......they lose by moving materials and things....they win by only moving people...and this takes trillions of dollars of long term weaponised spending....legally and illegaly by proxy.

China isn't playing by the rules and has never had any intentions of doing so, it has one goal, be world superpower and dominate the whole world with an iron fist, and I’d actual go as far as saying, when they do hold that power they’d be ruthless

The U.S. Does not have the right to know everything about everybody, China isn't hiding takers, it's simply not telling the world where they are, and China has the right to trade with whoever it wants, that's the very essence of the free market.

Sure, just like the U.S. has the right to withhold what we have from China for working with a terrorist state.

Well of course US needs a reason to bomb, invade, and install military bases in every country of the world,

because right now it only has 800 military bases in 80 countries across the world.

That's only half.

Of course China does.

Just like the US has the right to trade with anyone they like. Or to not. Or to tax imported goods. Or to place other sanctions on countries who ignore the sanctions on Iran.

It's what makes the world go round.

why the remaining non-Luciferian countries of the world don't sanction US boggles me.

imagine a world without nuclear attacks, 9/11, nor international & domestic false flag ops, and where countries actually trade for oil rather than invade for it.

China and Russia both practice asymmetric warfare, America simply does not have the resources to fight either country on their home turf. Simulated war games result in America losing pretty much all the time in a battle that does not start with a massive premptive nuclear strike, and even then the retaliatory strike would cripple america.

War with Russia or China is off of the table. Unless you want to say good bye to every big city on the west coast.

Ironically, Iranians would probably welcome overstock Wal*Mart products as payment in exchange for oil.
