Iran plans to sell oil via private group, evade ban

Oil products exporters' union

Reuters - Iran has reached agreements with European refiners to sell some of its oil through a private consortium, an official said on Saturday, a move designed to circumvent sanctions intended to put pressure on Tehran to halt its disputed nuclear program. The head of the oil products exporters' union said the agreement between the exporters' union, Iran's central bank, and the oil ministry would get round a European Union ban on shipping insurance for tankers carrying Iranian oil, though he gave few details and did not name the refiners involved >>>

Even worse is to realize bavafa is what the basiji's benefit

by amirparvizforsecularmonarchy on

most from is the exchange rate changes the sanctions cause.  Every day is like Christmas for the IRI, their system is strengthened, both they and the world knows why this is.   Maybe someone has a sense of humor, otherwise this is not the way you rid a country of a regime which the majority of the public oppose.  What happened to support the people of Iran and their human rights?????  Or is Air Strike Democracy the Wests only viable option for the people of Iran who seek political cover from the World to restore Freedom for Iranians like they enjoyed pre-1979.


What does sanction accomplish….

by Bavafa on

- A higher profit for the middleman (dalal)
- Enough revenue for the Mullah’s and their armed thugs (Bassij/Sepah) to carry on with their policy
- A saving face for the politicians in the West to safeguard the vote for the upcoming election


-A weaker Iranian population thus weaker opposition to IRI rule at home


Hope all the illicit money/profit as a result of sanction for dalal and IRI members along with the profit for advocacy of sanction spent on Dava o doktor in a most miserable way

'Hambastegi' is the main key to victory
