Personally, I have always believed that the unfair sanctions being put on Iran should be considered an act of war. It seems that China might agree. The source is RT so I'm sure some of you will take this with a grain of salt but most of the statements made in this article are sourced. I wonder why no other MSM outlets are covering this?


Fresh US sanctions against Iran, targeting not only the country’s oil industry but also foreign banks have sparked a furore. China warned Washington of a worsening in Sino-American relations, while Iran said the penalties amounted to "military war."


So I'm certain that China doesn't care too much about Iran other than their financial interests, but this is serious nonetheless.


The new set of sanctions is aimed at forcing Iran to end its supposed development of nuclear arms. The financial penalties will target the Chinese Kunlun bank and the Iraqi Elaf Islamic bank as they have participated in million dollar transactions with Iranian banks and are as such subject to sanctions.


"Today's action makes it clear that we will expose any financial institution, no matter where they are located, that allows the increasingly desperate Iranian regime to retain access to the international financial system," President Obama said in a statement.


Additionally, Obama ratcheted up the sanctions on Iran’s energy and petrochemical industries, approving sanctions against any entity that tries to purchase Iranian oil from the National Iranian Oil Co. and the Naftiran Intertrade Co.

Furthermore, Congress has agreed on a final sanctions package that will crack down on institutions that ship or insure Iranian cargo. The Senate is expected to vote on the sanctions before the end of the week.

The new penalties sparked a sharp reaction from China who said the US sanctioning of their banks would lead to a worsening of bilateral corporation between the two countries.

"The U.S. has invoked domestic law to impose sanctions on a Chinese financial institution, and this is a serious violation of international rules that harms Chinese interests," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said in a statement.

Finally some of the major world players other than Russia are publicly speaking out against the Iranian sanctions. China probably decided to voice their opinion on these new ones because it is disrupting their daily business and banking.

I wonder if this is part of Obama's plan?

Will it ever end?

Just one more reason for the international community to forge stronger relationships against the U.S. Seems to be the current trend of our government......

Eventually all these sucker punches are going to result in a real fight..

You raise an interesting point about China assisting with shutting down the SOH. I'm not sure how probable it is due to China's weaker navy but if the United States and their allies continue escalating these sanctions Russia and China are eventually going to put their foot down. Constant threats of strikes on Iran from Israel are not helping either.

Iran, China, and Russia are going to tell these sanctions and the nations who implemented them to hit the road pretty soon.



In today's atmosphere these nations teaming up to shut down the SOH is not that far fetched of a theory.

Everyone looks the other way when people are suffering and getting killed or being oppressed, but when the boat loads of money are threatened, everyone all of a sudden has a opinion.

Shut it down, who gives a crap. Canada will sell us oil, Mexico will sell us oil, we'll open our own reserves. Then destroy China's deep water rigs off the coast of Florida. It only hurts them. Wake up people if we need to use fossil fuels the US can stand on it's own for 100's of years, for proof check out our own DOE web site. By then we either have alternative energy or there is nothing, in which case the whole world is screwed. China is a third world country trying to be a super power off raping the Earth and man power only. Keep buying your crap made in China, you know the stuff that lasts about 3 months.

Have you some idea of how much oil China imports through the SOH? Why the bloody hell would China want to close it? Not to mention the damage that it would do to the world economy, i.e. the economies of countries that China needs to export to.

Then there's the fact that a large list of countries depend on oil moving from the Gulf through the SOH, which would put them in a de facto state of war with any countries attempting to close the SOH and keep it closed.

Assuming that China wants to destroy itself, how are they supposed to go about 'helping' Iran in the first place?

this slam from the biggest violators of human rights on the planet, who gives a # what this hypocrites say about rights or rules, they have listened to no one when it comes to rights or rules. These are most egregious manipulators of human suffering on this earth and they have the nerve to complain, and complain to the country that has basically given them every penny they have because we import more things from china than the rest of the world combined.

China can go to hell. Half the issue with the world economy is because of their misuse of money. They will get whats coming to them soon enough.

As far as Iran. Who are we to say who can and cannot have Nukes. Really ? I do not like the idea of Nukes in Iran, but its not our place to say.

I'm Canadian and we sell lots of oil to China, and we plan on selling them more due to Obama cancelling the Keystone Pipeline. There are rumors of building a pipeline to China. Canada doesn't care, we will just sell to the highest bidder. Once we get Harper out of office we hopefully will get a leader who doesn't bow down to American foreign policy.

The USA has tons of oil, they invaded Iraq, are buddies with the Saudis, and as a last resort they can always invade Venezuela (just joking that will never happen, at least I hope not).

America is used as the sword by the masters of puppets, international Banksters in order to execute their globalist agenda. What, you actually believe that if The United States of America falls that anything would change? No, it would not because they control most of the nations on planet Earth. You would still have NATO as well, which they control too.

That's why the bank bail outs were not just for American Banks, but for international banks in many Countries. Red China and Russia are probably in on it all behind the scenes. They will just be compensated for their cooperation much like China was rewarded with the largest mineral mining contracts in Afganistan, let alone the world, in order to keep quiet about the invasion. They were also rewarded with Oil Contracts in Iraq, look it up.

And if we fall, they don't get paid back our debt.
Let's say I am wrong, well what a World it would be having Red China in control of it? LMAO! Without the USA, along with Russia and North Korea, They would invade South Korea, Japan, Australia and afterwards, wipe the West out quicker than you could finish a bowl of rice. Remember that, because I know what I am talking about.

Back to reality though. Pakistan thinks that it has played both the U.S and China when in fact, it is The U.S and China who have played them. Russia is gonna get their peace of the pie by cooperating with the Syria situation as well I am sure.

Look, These people are internationalists, they don't give a damn about America other than to rape her tax payers in order to fund their Federal reserve scam, and use her military for building their Globalist Empire of subjugated sheople Nations.

This is done all while convincing all the robots of the world who can't think for themsleves that it's all The United States fault. Foolish mortals, this problem is much bigger than The United States. When are some of you America haters gonna comprehend that?

Some of you people really need to wake up. You need to read between the lies my friends. Just read between the lies. ~$heopleNation

there are ways around sanctions.

iranian oil is under their control and supervision.

there are probably thousands of third parties in the banking and oil industry who would have zero problems getting iranian oil to market for a small cut.

iran could just take payment in gold, or trade.

it's just an inconvenience.

like having to walk to the pizzeria instead of getting it delivered.

It seems to be a back and forth game with Russia and China . They are poking back the only way they can .
IMHO they are only trying to create a bargaining chip / gain some leverage , in getting something they want from the US .

If you go to the World Bank web site and do a search on Iranian power, you will find that for decades they were trying to get assistance to build hydro-power sites to meet their power needs. Over and over they tried to meet the recommendations set by the World bank and each time they were knocked back, only when they were left with no other options did they return to the abandoned nuclear power programmes started by Siemens in the early 1970s. The Iranians did not want nuclear, they were backed into a corner and left with no other option, and when they did revert to nuclear, they were suddenly offered help from Russia in order to do so. If they have nuclear weapons capability, then they have it because they were pushed to have it by the World Banks refusals to assist them towards clean energy sources, and energy sources that wouldn't provide any weapons grade by-product.

Agenda anyone?

An embargo is not an act of war.

It is a nonviolent act.
