Obama to Clear Way to Tighten Iranian Oil Sanctions


www.nytimes.com

President Obama has determined there is enough oil in world markets to allow countries to rely less on imports from Iran...

The new sanctions, passed as part of the defense budget and mandated by the Senate in a rare 100-to-0 vote...

Additionally, the administration last week exempted 10 European countries, including Britain, France, Germany and Japan from the new measures...

First-off...

I didn't know that Japan was part of Europe. Interesting information there.

But to the topic at-hand...

Has Obama even seen gas prices lately? When is the last time he has filled-up the presidential limo in Chicago?

How in the name of holy hell can this be a good idea right now, of all times. Gas is already $4.00 per gallon.

This man is TRYING to bankrupt the country. It's #@$%'ing obvious.

20% of the country can't find work, and now another 20% won't be able to afford driving to work... I JUST DON'T GET IT.

And what is with these sanctions being slipped-through and passed in a defense budget? Really?

This is what your country has come to America.

You don't hear about laws/bills/etc until they are passed. You don't get a say in whether you like said bill or not. You are not represented...

Remember people... this country's freedom was paid for by the blood of patriots... not with Federal Reserve Notes.

He should have known that there are protest in Indonesia about gas prices. Countries over there already feel the pain and the war still havent start yet, and he still keep pushing ? Tell that to yourself Obama, keep assuring yourself.

Additionally, the administration last week exempted 10 European countries, including Britain, France, Germany and Japan from the new measures, given that the countries were already reducing oil imports from Iran.
In a statement, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said that the country had “made progress in shrinking Iran’s oil export markets and isolating its Central Bank from the world financial system.”


So, punish all other country, so they buy the higher oil price except these special "european" country then ask Saudis to work harder then push out Iran from world financial system.
This sounds more about money than about nuke isn't it ?

Dont forget, Israel expect USA to sell oil to Israel for 5 years if Israel cant get its own oil.

Israel complains about Iran might have nuke.
Sanctions, sanctions, sanction - war
Oil price skyrocket, protest on the street
Sell oil to Israel for next 5 years
Oil price spacerocket, protest on the street "silenced"

Final result -
Oil price is in orbit
The public suppressed
Iran is on war with America (might not)
Israel gets oil (depends on above)
America default (5 years is good enough time to recheck the debt allowance)
Everyone on bad mood

In anyway I see it, I see Israel creating a ditch for USA, all in the name of protecting that country...err I mean THE country.

Way to go. Keep up the good work. You can always blame it on other people later.
Why most Americans dont see this coming ?

Hint: Do you notice, recently Discovery and History channel airing documentary about preppers and about SHTF stuff ? Heck, they even aired it few days ago about what happen in SHTF event. Theres your hint already.

America might default, but the American people will be revolting in the streets.

You think the 30s were bad? We didn't all own guns then.

If the government thinks this country will bend over and take it in the arse, they have another thing coming.

The problem is the complacency in the population due to government hand-outs...

People are afraid to bite the hand that feeds them.

When the hand stops feeding them, the hand will look an awfully lot like food.

Just a random though.

I suppose you also weren't aware there are like 57 states in the US either


On topic, I could care less about sanctions right now. I am more worried about putting food on the table, clothes on my girl's backs, and keeping a roof over their head at this point. I think a lot of people are in the same situation.

Personally I hate the stupid santions bullying, and think real diplomacy would be a step forward. Not the "you do what we tell you to do, or we bully you" BS that passes for diplomacy nowadays

With current pass act its more tightening than ever. Cant grow food, animals etc, I think next time they just lock up these people, feed and make them work, just like chicken co-op.

You work, you get stamp food, you protest you get bullets, you grow food we confiscate, you have loans, you need to make your family safe, so continue pecking.

Hmmm the more I think about it, those nuts claiming USA becoming socialist have a point afterall.

Back to topic...
What if countries dont honour USA request, Get get spanking ?

This is not bullying. It's clearly an act of war.

When the straw finally breaks the camel's back, I sure would not want my family members serving within 1000+ miles of Iran.

When I talk about bullying, I am not talking about the PC version, John called me a poopoo head. I view all real bullying as an act of war. Can be on a personal scale, or on a national scale. Still reprehensible either way

When the corporate interest invested in this nations wants higher prices on everything, the puppet government does what the corporate dictatorship ask.

They want less oil in the markets to keep the raising of prices and they will have it even it that means wagging another war and spill the blood of the sons and daughters of America in order to increase profits

Wake up Americans we are rule by a dictatorship and their business is profits and screw everything else.

Sorry, but this really disturbed me: "President Obama has determined...."

Well thank God Lord Obama has determined this for us and the rest of the world. When I read that it instantly reminded me of this:
