EU Confirms Iran oil imports ban

"Tehran should come to the table"

BBC: European Union foreign ministers have formally adopted an oil embargo against Iran over its nuclear programme. The sanctions involve an immediate ban on all new oil contracts with Iran, while existing contracts will be honoured until 1 July. Tehran denies that it is trying to develop nuclear weapons and says talks and not sanctions are the only way to resolve the dispute. The EU currently buys around 20% of Iran's oil exports >>>

The Molla's HAVE TO be smart enough to realise  they cannot afford to challenge these super powers when it comes to thier own business.

But the good news is that there is no backing off from the IRI as that would be the end of them just like Bashir Assad.


Time to clear the country from the FILTH  and give it back to the people.

What the Sepahi Guy Really Meant

by Faramarz on

When the Sepah Commander Salami said that the US aircraft carrier USS Stennis will not be allowed fo return to the Persian Gulf, what he really meant was that other aircraft carriers can come but not Stennis until its crew is well-rested and are ready for duty again.

It was all a big misunderstanding!

The Ministry of Defence confirmed that a Royal Navy Type 23 frigate, HMS Argyll, was part of the US-led carrier group to pass through the waterway, as tensions continued to escalate over Tehran's nuclear programme.
