I saw some days ago that the biggest importers of Iranian oil are Italy, Spain and Greece, so I wonder why someone would want to force those countries to buy oil from a different source.
Apparently, Iranian oil is also cheaper, but some OPEC countries are ready to sell oil at a slightly lower price...

I might be a bit off topic here but hear me out please, The States and Europe want the Iranian oil frozen with no movement.
Now the States also this past week killed the "Keystone" pipeline here in Canada.
This oil is now bound for China and Asia too but mostly China.
Do I not see people shooting themselves in the foot?
Could all this be intentional?
I say yes, In my opinion only this is a contrived action to get a reaction from the people when their heating bills quadruple or worse.
