Iran slams EU oil embargo, warns could hit US


TEHRAN/BRUSSELS - Iran accused Europeans on Monday of waging "psychological warfare" after the EU banned imports of Iranian oil, and U.S. President Barack Obama said Washington would impose more sanctions to address the "serious threat presented by Iran's nuclear program."

The Islamic Republic, which denies trying to build a nuclear bomb, scoffed at efforts to choke its oil exports, as Asia lines up to buy what Europe scorns.

Some Iranians also renewed threats to stop Arab oil from leaving the Gulf and warned they might strike U.S. targets worldwide if Washington used force to break any Iranian blockade of a strategically vital shipping route.

Yep, all they need to do is lower their price 5 bucks a barrel and they will sell more oil than they were doing before the embargo !

This whole thing is totally stupid. Iran will get their nukes.

Re: Iran Says Closing The Strait Of Hormuz Is Now Its Legal Right
TEHRAN: Iran’s rial currency plunged 10 percent to a new record low Monday as the EU imposed a ban on Iranian oil imports, posing a major headache for President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who has said sanctions will not hurt the economy.

The ban, which comes on top of new United States sanctions aimed at hampering Iran’s oil exports around the world, sent Iranians rushing to convert their savings into hard currency as efforts to curb black market trading failed.

There are no international waters in the Strait of Hormuz. If the countries who own the territorial water decide to close it, it's within their rights.

We are the idiots from refusing to drill for our own oil and demanding that people who hate our guts sell their oil to us.

Hope you enjoy walking!

Re: Iran Says Closing The Strait Of Hormuz Is Now Its Legal Right
Regardless of all the drama, the harsh physical reality is Iran has the capacity to close the strait for nine minutes.

If they do, shortly thereafter they will not have the military capability to close down a street.

They know this.
Everyone knows this.
That's why it's all madness.

If it happens, it's because someone WANTED nuclear war bad enough to position everyone in a lose-lose situation, so they could ultimately gain. Your guess is as good as mine, but I don't see it happening.

If you put two Cocks in a ring with razors on their feet, you already know the outcome. There are no accidents, but cooler heads prevail once all other alternatives are exhausted.

Re: Iran Says Closing The Strait Of Hormuz Is Now Its Legal Right
Iran is screwed whether they close it or not..... decisions have already been made to remove the Iranian problem.

I can't believe how stupid Iran are actually. Guess there leaders are just crap. They're about to become insignificant.

A lot of countries have been waiting a long time for this moment to remove the Iranian problem..... and this is it; so they won't leave until they've sorted out the Iranian problem.

DOOM on I say.... but it won't be WW3. Russia knows this is coming now, and probably think the Iranians are stupid anyway!

Re: Iran Says Closing The Strait Of Hormuz Is Now Its Legal Right
UK, FRANCE, US SEND WARSHIPS THROUGH HORMUZ LONDON, Jan 24 (NNN-KUNA) --Britain, US and France send warships through Strait of Hormuz Britain, it was confirmed here Monday. America and France delivered a pointed signal to Iran, sending six warships led by a 100,000 ton aircraft carrier through the highly sensitive waters of the Strait of Hormuz, the Daily Telegraph newspaper reported. HMS Argyll, a Type 23 frigate from the UK Royal Navy, was one of the escort vessels making up the carrier battle-group. This deployment defied explicit Iranian threats to close the waterway. It coincided with an escalation in the West's confrontation with Iran over the country's nuclear ambitions, the newspaper noted.

Iran is controls the price of oil with its option to close Hormuz.

The higher the price the less effective the sanctions.

After a certain point they work in reverse and become profitable overall for Iran while destroying the USD.
