Oil giant stepped up orders of Iranian crude while others halted trade amid sanctions imposed by UN, EU and US

Shell, the Anglo-Dutch oil giant, paid the state-owned Iranian oil company at least $1.5bn (£0.94bn) for crude oil this summer, increasing its business with Tehran as the international community implemented some of the toughest sanctions yet aimed at constricting the Islamic republic's economy and its lifeline oil business.
Sensitive trading documents seen by the Guardian show the UK-registered company stepped up its orders of Iranian oil at a time when other major buyers, including BP and Reliance Industries, India's largest conglomerate, halted orders amid impending trade sanctions aimed at curbing Tehran's perceived desire to acquire nuclear weapons.

Comment: I have been using shell for fuel for over 15 years now. I will no longer be helping them to fund terrorists.

Good, screw the sanctions it's an act of war- and that's exactly what we need right now (sarcasm).

"When purchasing crude oil, we buy at market prices," she said. "We have no intention to take advantage of sanctions. We respect international regulations and have stopped the sale of refined products to Iran, but currently the sanctions that have been applied by the UN and EU, when translated into French law, do not concern the trading of crude oil."
. . . .

Which roughly translates into . . . I'd sell my sister to a brothel in Bangkok for the right price

I wish they'd just be honest, admit they're greedy opportunistic pricks and say that the cheaper the get the raw material, and the more they can get for it after it is refined, the bigger bonus they get at the end of the year.

You really still believe that there are some invisible boogey-men called "terrorists" waiting to steal your milk-and-cookies?

How hard do you really think it is to bomb a school/daycare/etc in America? With the number of "terrorists" that the US would have you believe existed, don't you think we would be seeing some, oh I don't know... terrorism?

Are there people or countries that don't like the USA? Yes there are, and it's the USA's fault.

The United States is the largest terrorist organization in the world. We make more threats, attack more people, kill more civilians, and go to war with more countries than any nation on the planet. And the government has the chutzpah to call other people terrorists... give me a #'ing break.

The USA dropped TWO nuclear weapons on TWO civilian populations, and we have the BALLS to call other nations terrorists...

Seriously... I am so sick of reading/seeing/hearing that word that it's #'ing painful to the senses...

So they are following sanctions...since Iran have to import refined oil... yeah them selling oil makes them money, but you can't do much with money if you don't have refined oil to run cars and planes and etc...
