US sets new sanctions on Iran oil sector


www.news.com.au

US President Barack Obama has imposed new economic sanctions on Iran's oil export sector and on a pair of Chinese and Iraqi banks accused of doing business with Tehran.
In a statement released by the White House on Tuesday, Obama said the new measures underlined the United States' determination to force Tehran "to meet its international obligations" in nuclear negotiations.

More pressure from the US in imposing sanctions on Iran.
When the bill was updated sometime in June, China was not overly happy about it. So this time round China features and is noted for one of its banks being involved
So effectivley anybody seeking to deal with Iran oil, will be cut off from the ability to access US currency and trade benefits. It is a seige and ultimately Iran will need to retaliate.

This is just One More step closer to not resolving the conflict. The mighty US never ceases to amaze.......

Awesome, lets hope they can kill another million innocent people like with the sanctions in Iraq.

Its scary watching terrorists use economic warfare because you know that the real thing is not far away.

This seems like the final touches to the diplomatic and economic pressures before any military action lets loose.

Better bet for US is to destroy Iranian nuclear plants and call it quits. Any major operation to fight full scale war would prove costly for the whole world. Common peoples have done no harm to Barak Obama and company, just do not know why they want the have the SHTF and create all sorts of chaos.

Sanctions are an act of war. What if all the nations of the world got together and decided to sanction the USA and not let anything in our out of the country, and decided to stop doing business, set up bases around them and constantly threatened them with attack...

Yep and the US seems to get away with it all time, without regard for who stands in their way. Bullies, thats what they are. I personaly hope that it all just goes away. Of course it won't.

Don't you love the smell of economic terrorism in the morning?

I'm amazed that the hypocracy of the United States Government and Globalist Scumbags is allowed to stand in international affairs.

Sanctions WILL NOT encourage Iran to play ball with the US.

Economic Sanctions are just a nice way of the US trying to decide who gets to eat in Iran.

You forget that might makes right, or should I say that right makes might?

Remember that most nations do not support the recent actions of Iran. It's a moral majority. A murderer that murders might similarly feel attacked if they're sanctioned by the 99%. But does a murderer deserve any sympathy? No, because 99% agree that the murderer is wrong.

Iran brought these consequences on itself by making immoral, unjustifiable choices. Because of this, it cannot claim it's being wrongfully attacked. 99% would disagree and void their argument.
