A foreign ministry statement said Japan has frozen the assets of 12 entities and 13 individuals accused of links to "Iran's sensitive nuclear activities and proliferation."

The heat is now on Iran. Something big is going to happen if they don't stop trying to source nuclear weapons.

As we all know Japan is the only country to have been bombed by an atomic weapon and they would not like this to happen to another country, but if it get's into the wrong hands it will very soon.

How dare the Japanese not let Iran have the nuclear energy! They must have been pushed into this by the big bad evil USA!

/sarcasm



Good for Japan.

Japan consumes 5.6 million bbl/day of oil. At $117 per barrel, they are hardly hurting Iran by freezing their assets.

Frozen assets taste good, in a microwave!


Iran is asking for trouble, if they continue persuing nuclear technology.
Japan looks good to the international community by helping deter that
persuit.

But i gotta wonder if the Japanese harbor some deep hatred of the U.S.
from the nuclear blasts in Hiroshima & Nagasaki back in '45? Maybe
secretly, they wish Iran could nuke us?

Actually Japan can hurt US any time it wants too, as they hold the biggest piece of the US debt at this moment all they have to do is no showing up when US is open for business in the debt auction block just like China did last year.

The same thing that Japan is doing US big oil barons tried to do to Venezuela and Chavez, guess what Chavez challenged them and look how oil is looking like right now.

Iran just have to do the same and the 117 dollars oil barrel will be nothing but a dream in few months from now.

200 hundred anyone?

In a world that is rule by oil prices anything is fear game for the oil wealth holders and Iran is one of them.
