    Sanctions causin' oil distribution problems for Iran...
    :cool:
    Iran, unable to sell oil, stores it on tankers
    13 May`12 - Increasingly hard-pressed to find buyers for its petroleum, Iran has been routinely switching off satellite tracking systems on its sea-bound oil tankers for more than a month, in what U.S. officials and industry analysts describe as a cat-and-mouse game with Western governments seeking to enforce sanctions on Iranian exports.

    The sanctions against Iran have not worked. There are enough exemptions to make the sanctions meaningless. Iran is on track to make its nuclear bomb, then they will launch it. If obama is presisent, he will do notning even if a bomb is launched from Venezuela into downtown Manhattan.

    US President Barack Obama want to defeat Iran with the help to afraid Iran that USA and WEST can attack any thing than why awaiting? The secret is USA or Israel or any WEST country never dare or courage to attack Iran? Do not consider Iran as ( Arab Luxury leaders ) have no connection or relation with Islam? Arab King proud to send 1.0 Million Dollars in night club? It is true face of Wahabi and promoting American Islam?

    What Happen to Jimmay Carter when tried to release 54 American hostage during 1979?
    Too early forgotten American?

    Iran feelin' the heat of sanctions...
    :cool:
    As sanctions tighten, Iran gets squeezed
    May 23rd, 2012 - Despite recent assurances by senior officials in Iran that the country will weather sanctions targeting the country's petroleum and financial sectors, the international effort is having a noticeable impact on the Iranian economy. And the situation may well figure into talks scheduled for Wednesday in Baghdad over the Islamic Republic's disputed nuclear program, U.S. officials say.

    The "sanctions" are "working". They are making ordinary Iranians, miserable. And it's crushing the economy of Iran.

    And for no good reason.

    I also find your assumption that Iran would launch a nuke..and laughable you think either Venezuela (Which isn't even close to producing a bomb) or Iran has a system capable of delivering a nuke to Manhattan.
