Iran hit by oil embargo and 'mismanagement'

Obama imposes new sanctions

BBC: US President Barack Obama has ordered new economic sanctions against Iran's energy sector and some financial firms.

Mr Obama said the US remained committed to reaching a diplomatic solution on Iran, but the onus was on Tehran to meet its international obligations >>>

I could see a rather strong support from Iranian people if these sanctions were imposed in support of Iranian people and their aspiration for freedom and democracy.  But the West has shown without any ambiguity about their purpose of these sanctions and only in support of those who advocate “starve Iranians  Such policy will only alienate and create even more distrust for Iranians from the West and strengthen the hands of Mullahs at the throat of Iranians.

I Know, right?

Like those precious iranians who live abroad and have their own lives and buisnesses within those countries as well as in iran, are sure "bee gham" since they do not have a clue as to what actually happens in iran and want this misery to go on for god know s how long, until something magically happens, Like a big bang , and things start to change.

Thank you for choosing an apt verse to express the reality of the situation.

While we , those who wanna see iri go, rather through the most painful and exruciating process, ever witnessed in the world, Will just go ahead and stay weher we are, USA, canada, Various european countries, and keep an eye on thing, until we feel everythineg is jack dandy safe,.haThen we will move back to iran, and we will all live happily ever after. Because by god , Histoiry is on our side and corroborated our views.

Oh and this comment:


  All they want is to punish people who stand up to them and "eye-ran" is no different that al qaida to them.

Truly  shows how you appreciate the resources and ammenities that has been provided for you, by the same people who do not distinguish between arabs and al aqaida and eyeranians.

Cuba has been under the harshest sanctions since 1959.  North Korea same.  Their people live in misery and poverty and their governments are still in charge.  You people should read history before commenting.  The West has no problems imposing these sanctions on Iran because they don;t give a damn about the Iranian people.  All they want is to punish people who stand up to them and "eye-ran" is no different that al qaida to them.  In fact you people are catering to the racist and discriminatory behavior of the US government and it's Israeli master.  We all want to see the Iranian regime fall but what they are doing is forcing Iran into a corner.  Three out comes in my opinion are possible: 1.  Iran concedes.  Very low probability, 2.  Iran drops out of the NPT and goes to war against the US and the whole "free world" inclusing the "free Saudis".  Good chance.  3.  Iran will live in economic limbo for the foreseeable futrure.  Good chance.  You people cheering this on should move back to Iran and suffer like the millions of the poor and destitude that are paying for the Israeli land grab policies (distraction of public by raising the Iran threat).

Not enough at all

by Fred on


The warmongering, weaponized nuke acquiring, Messianic Islamist Rapists who murder and kill Iranian men, women and children on a nonstop basis are after turning Iran into North Korea in the heart of the vital Middle East.

To avoid the war the Messianic Islamist Rapists are deadest on imposing on all, backbreaking airtight sanctions plus air/naval quarantine is a must. So is logistical help to the Iranian people to overthrow the warmongers before they succeed.

 These piecemeal sanctions are not enough at all.
