“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 . handed to him,” Dubowitz said.
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

Iranian nuclear issue is merely the reason why the west is against Iran.The real reasons as many might be aware of are, the popularity and the strength Iran is gaining in the region despite all the sanctions and sabotages done by the west during last decades..And of course central bank's take over and the petrodollars trading decline are also very important concerns...West knows Iran is not making nuclear weapons but they use the only good excuse they have against Iran so people may buy into the lie and back up the stupid invasion plan....A powerful Iran will make the whole region peaceful, stable and calm and also make a good partner and ally if Israel and the Rothschilds come to their senses,stop being so greedy and frightened,chill out for a change and inhale the huka.
