Sounds to me like O has already supported whatever they are going to do! Estimating at $10.00 per barrel that will come out to approximately 1 billion dollars a year. I don't think the sanctions were hurting the Iranian population as much as expressed in this thread unless Iran squandered all of it's income from pre sanction times. Oh wait the sanctions don't hurt the population, they hurt the oil rich elite who are the ones oppressing the people. Just like in America. I seem to remember being told that if we(the people) voted to pay for the Alaskan pipeline our fuel resourses would be secure forever. now that oil is being sold to China and we are paying around $4.00 a gallon
“For five months, since Rouhani’s election, the United States has offered Iran two major forms of sanctions relief,” Dubowitz said. “First there’s been a significant slowdown in the pace of designations while the Iranians are proliferating the number of front companies and cutouts to bust sanctions.” The second kind of relief Dubowitz said the White House had offered Iran was through its opposition to new Iran sanctions legislation supported by both parties in Congress. By Dubowitz’s estimates, Iran is now selling between 150,000 and 200,000 barrels of oil per day on the black market, meaning that Iran has profited from the illicit sale of over 35 million barrels of oil since Rouhani took office, with little additional measures taken by the United States to counter it. “Sounds like Obama decided to enter the Persian nuclear bazaar to haggle with the masters of negotiation and has had his head handed to him,” Dubowitz said.
