Oil Politics: West and Arabs Threaten Iran
Foreign Policy of Iran-12
tasted Islamic blood sumptuously for years since the bogus Sept-11, the
blood-thirsty rogues of USA, UK and other Europeans are looking around for
exclusive Muslim prey.
Libya’s super-fine refined oil, Iran's oil resources are also the envy of USA.
And Sunni world is eager to take away the oil market of Iran.
world's fourth largest oil reserves, Iran can be one of richest nations
but being bullied by the USA and Arab nations. Iran is showing a slow but
steady increase in the past 30 years, Iran's oil production started to decline
since 2005 due to lack of investment in developing current and new oil and gas
fields. USA has been harming the genuine interests of Iranians. Statistics
show, due to US maneuverings, a decline in foreign investment since President
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad took office in 2005. Further, the mark of sanctions can be
seen on Iran's economy, as well as a marked pattern of Iran being forced to
look to Asia to make up for lost business from the US and Europe.
US nuts claim that entire world is afraid of the most powerful USA.
nuclear program is their own problem. If nuclear operations speed up climate
change, USA must end its own nuclear efforts and destroy nuclear arsenals and
end nuclear research altogether.
nuclear programs are meant essentially to manufacture nukes, as all nuclear terror
states have been doing for years now, USA claims Iran is also doing the same
and wants to destabilize the Shiite nation by racking up that non-issue. Tehran
insists its nuclear program is legitimate and is for peaceful purposes. But in
order to create a cause for attack, the US and its allies just bluff that Iran
is trying to develop a nuclear weapon.
some time, American officials have been using these levers to curtail financial
transactions with Iran. Due to nasty
triclomatic efforts by Washington against Iranians, only few people are willing
to deal with Iran directly. European banks have received a simple message: they
can either trade with Iran, or with the USA, not both. But USA, China and
France are still selling petrol to Iran.
unnecessarily politicized the legitimate Iranian nuclear ambition. In March
2006, the Iran issue was discussed at the UN Security Council, which called for
a report by the IAEA to establish Iran's compliance with the terms of the
nuclear non-proliferation treaty (NPT). The treaty allows for the use of
nuclear technology for peaceful energy purposes, as long as countries can
demonstrate that their programs are not being used for the development of
nuclear weapons. USA is not a sincere signatory of NPT and proliferates nuclear stuff, but wants Iran to comply.
asserted that its nuclear program was for civilian use permitted by the NPT. On
this basis it said it rejected the validity of the notorious Security Council's
calls. It claimed that while subscribers to the NPT were being punished, those
who had not signed up to the agreement were being rewarded by generous nuclear
US pressure grows on Iran over its nuclear program, there is evidence that
behind the scenes, the USA has stepped up its push to isolate Tehran
economically. In recent weeks a number of countries and companies have cut back
on their imports of Iranian crude oil. They include some of Iran's most
important trading partners: China, Japan and India. At the same time more
companies have stopped supplying Iran with refined petroleum. Because of a
shortage of refining capacity, Iran relies on such imports to meet domestic
move was explained in unusually blunt terms by hawkish William Burns, US
Under-Secretary of State: "What we've been doing is to try to use every
lever that we already have at our disposal to encourage foreign companies,
foreign entities to cut their ties with the Iranian economy. The squeeze is
nations recently unveiled new sanctions against Tehran following a UN report
that said Iran had carried out tests related to "development of a nuclear
device". Further measures being considered to target Iran's oil and
financial sectors have brought a furious response from Tehran.
part of next step, an embargo on Iranian oil exports has been considered before
but dismissed as it could also drive up global oil prices and harm Western
economies, particularly in Europe. It is believed the new measures could cut
Tehran off from global energy markets without raising the price of fuel. But the
blustering affects the price of oil. Prices retreated Wednesday after an
initial spike, but maybe the fluid situation could cause continued instability
in 2012 prices.
USA has also been using its alliance with Saudi Arabia to help suggest
alternative sources of oil supply for Asian countries that make up some of
Iran's most important customers. There's also a wider push to encourage
non-American companies to stop doing business with Iran.
as economic terrorism have been employed as a powerful weapon against the
“challengers” by USA. In June 2010, the discredited UNSC approved fresh
sanctions against Tehran. The measures prohibit Iran from buying heavy weapons
such as attack helicopters and missiles. They also toughen rules on financial
transactions with Iranian banks and increase the number of Iranian individuals
and companies that are targeted with asset freezes and travel bans. Sanctions
were imposed by the US after the seizure of American hostages in the aftermath
of the revolution, and the 1980 Iran-Iraq war. In recent years a fresh wave of
UN sanctions has attempted to curb Iran's nuclear ambitions. But what effect
have these measures actually had on the country and its economy? Use the graphs
below to see key economic indicators and major events over the last 30 years.
by Americans, Zionists, Europeans and Arabs with repeat sanctions and war
mongering, Iran says it may close a vital oil-trade route if the West imposes
more sanctions over its controversial nuclear program. Vice President Mohammad
Reza Rahimi warned that "not a drop of oil will pass through the Strait of
Hormuz" if sanctions are widened. Iran's navy chief Admiral Habibollah
Sayari later said closing the Strait of Hormuz would be "really easy for
Iran's armed forces "or as Iranians say, easier than drinking a glass of
water". But right now, they don't need to shut it as they have the Sea of
Oman under control, and they can control the transit.
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad reiterates his country does not need atomic bombs.
Amid continuing controversy over Teheran's nuclear ambitions, Ahmadinejad
warned the US would "regret" any confrontation with Iran. Iran has
always insisted that its nuclear program is for civilian purposes. Ahmadinejad
also accused the head of the UN's International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA),
Yukiya Amano, of being a puppet of the US. He does not publish a report about
America and its allies' nuclear arsenals. He does not open his mouth about the
Israeli nukes at all.
USA and Israel have been threatening Iran with a “deadly war”. Iran has vowed
to respond by attacking Israeli and US interests in the region. The enemies
will only drop their plots when Iran puts them back in their place.
critics say that to close the Strait of Hormuz is contrary to the interests of
Iran because it would hurt their income, it would unite all of the oil
importing countries in the world against them.
closure could temporarily cut off some oil supplies and impact the price of oil
worldwide. The threats emerged because European Union ministers are soon to
decide on a boycott of Iranian oil, in response to the country's nuclear
program. European Union ministers have said that a decision on further
economic sanctions — including a boycott of Iranian oil — will be made in the
coming weeks. The vast majority of Iran's foreign revenue comes from oil
