With all the threads on Iran issues popping up on ATS, I thought it might be a good idea to have a single thread to compile all current and future info.

updates here as well.

Thats the reason I thought I'd start this thread. I'm going to be updating with any new important information when it comes in. I welcome anyone else to do the same.

January 23rd 2011

Why is this date important? Because it is the date that the EU decide whether or not to impose an oil embargo on Iran. If they do, Iran will shut the strait of Hormuz.


BRUSSELS (Dow Jones)--European foreign ministers will meet in Brussels on January 23, earlier than previously arranged, to discuss matters including the final details of sanctions on Iranian oil, a European Union official said Tuesday.

So Iran is going to shut it down as soon as the decision is made or as soon as the exports actually are banned. I imagine there will be a lag between the two. The US isnt even suppose to start banning imports until June.

Iran has a HUGE history of bluffing and exaggeration and outright lies. I wouldnt think they would immediately shut the straight just because of a "decision". IF and thats a BIG IF, they do anything at all, it wont happen until the effects are actually put in place in earnest.

So i wouldnt look for anything spectacular out of Iran on the 23rd no matter what decision is made.

US Asks Japan to Curtail Oil Imports from Iran

Japanese media report the U.S. has demanded that Japan reduce oil imports from Iran.

The Yomiuri Shimbun said at the request of the U.S., the Japanese government is discussing in detail with its domestic petroleum industry curtailing crude oil imports from Iran.

Japan’s daily crude oil imports from Iran stands at 350-thousand barrels, nine-point-eight percent of its total oil imports.


An embargo is a declaration of war... which is precisely what the US wants to do.


Azumi says #Japan will reduce oil imports from #Iran.

Before world war 2 the US did he same to japan. They also stopped them from being able to obtain raw materials. I wonder how much the Saudis and other rich oil nations stand to profit from an embargo on Iran.

Thanks for the info.

Seems japan have folded to the US's demands.


TEHRAN, Jan 12 (Reuters) - The United States won key support from Japan on Thursday for tough oil sanctions against Iran over a nuclear programme that the West suspects is geared to developing atomic bombs.
