President Donald Trump decided not to reissue the Significant Reduction Exceptions when they expire in early May meaning that the buyers of Iran’s oil must end their transactions by May 2 or face sanctions.

The US has been working on several fronts to pressure Iran. It has designated the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist organisation and has also imposed sanctions on Tehran's affiliates such as Hezbollah in Lebanon.

Axios reported on Sunday that Mr Pompeo met last week “with around 15 Iranian-American community leaders” in Texas. When asked about regime change in Iran, Mr Pompeo did not give clear intentions but said that “we're careful not to use the language of regime change” and the administration would not intervene militarily in Iran. The US has been also imposing more sanctions on Iranian military wings and proxies including a designation of the Iran revolutionary guard forces as foreign terrorist organization in early April, and new sanctions on Hezbollah.

The White House on Monday underlined its determination "to sustain and expand the maximum economic pressure campaign against Iran to end the regime’s destabilising activity threatening the United States, our partners and allies, and security in the Middle East".

Beyond commercial considerations, the U.S. effort to finally choke off Iranian revenue, coming on the heels of the designation of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist organization, could also prompt a more desperate response from Tehran.

On Monday, Iranian navy officials reiterated previous threats to close the Strait of Hormuz, a maritime chokepoint through which passes about 30 percent of the daily seaborne trade in oil.

While U.S. defense officials and security experts generally dismiss Iran’s periodic threats to close Hormuz and say that U.S. warships would offer a devastating response, an Iranian regime under sustained economic and diplomatic assault could nonetheless ratchet up tensions in a dangerous part of the world.

Trump being Israel's lapdog (again) instead of focusing on America.

quote:

President Donald Trump announced Monday that the US had designated Iran's Revolutionary Guards as a "foreign terrorist organisation" as part of efforts to increase international pressure on the country.

The United States had already blacklisted dozens of entities and people for their affiliations with the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) but not the organisation as a whole.

Trump said in a statement Monday that the move "recognises the reality" that Iran is a state-sponsored supporter of terrorism and that the Revolutionary Guard is an active participant.

"The IRGC is the Iranian government's primary means of directing and implementing its global terrorist campaign," Trump said.

The designation will introduce new sanctions, freeze assets and ban Americans from doing business with the group.

Critics have warned the move could subject US military and intelligence officials to similar actions by other governments.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned banks and business of the new consequences of working with Iran's Revolutionary Guards.

Iran’s state-run TV said the decision contradicted international law.

“No other country has the legal right to designate as terrorist another country’s armed forces ... Iran’s influence in the Middle East and its success in fighting against Islamic State are the reasons behind this designation,” state TV said, without quoting a specific official.

Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu welcomed the move. (of course)

"Thank you, my dear friend, US President Donald Trump, for having decided to declare Iran's Revolutionary Guards a terrorist organization," Netanyahu said in a statement issued soon after the White House announcement.

"Thank you for responding to another important request of mine, which serves the interests of our countries and countries of the region."

Iran's parliament has vowed to retaliate by passing an urgent bill putting US troops on its own terrorism blacklist, which also features the Islamic State group, the semi-official news agency ISNA reported.

"Even though we believe one should not play along with America's extreme acts, the reality is that we must retaliate," the head of Iran's influential national security and foreign policy commission, Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh, told ISNA.

A statement signed by a majority of lawmakers in support of the bill said any action against Iran's national security and its armed forces was "crossing a red line" and that the US administration would "regret" its decision.

^ Indeed.

The only reason they are economically developed is because we are paying them trillions for oil.





They would all still be sitting in desert huts hoarding goats if it weren't for us.

It's the Persians you're talking about here eh.....I wouldn't call them backward desert dwellers, it's a shame that it's become such a religious state, but they have a rich history that could rival most others.

There is evidence of petroleum being used in trade as early as the 3rd and 4th centuries.[4] Information on the production of oil on the Apsheron peninsula can be found in the manuscripts of most Arabic and Persian authors.

The following paragraph from the accounts of the famous traveler Marco Polo "il Milione" is believed to be a reference to Baku oil: 'Near the Georgian border there is a spring from which gushes a stream of oil, in such abundance that a hundred ships may load there at once. This oil is not good to eat; but it is good for burning and as a salve for men and camels affected with itch or scab. Men come from a long distance to fetch this oil, and in all the neighborhood no other oil is burnt but this."[5]


Historical production
The Turkish scientist and traveller of the second part of the 17th century, Evliya Çelebi, reported that "the Baku fortress was surrounded by 500 wells, from which white and black acid refined oil was produced".

In 1636 Adam Oleary Elshleger (1603-1671), a German diplomat and traveler, gave description of 30 Baku oil wells and remarked that some of them were gushers.

The first detailed description of the Baku oil industry was made by Engelbert Kaempfer, Secretary of the Swedish Embassy to Persia (Iran) in 1683

In his notes he confirms the existence of places where natural gas discharges to the surface. Kaempfer describes "flaming steppe" as follows: it "...constitutes a peculiar and wonderful sight, for some of the fissures were blazing with big, others with quite flame and was allowing everybody to come up; thirds emitted smoke or at any case minimum perceptible evaporation that was sending off heavy and stinking taste of oil. It was occupying the territory of 88 steps in length and 26 in width."[citation needed](improved translation needed)

Many 18th and 19th century European accounts of the Caucasus refer to the Fire Temple of Baku at Suraxanı raion, where the fire was fed by natural gas from a cavern beneath the site..

.....Oil extraction methods in those times were very primitive —mainly hand-dug wells, drilled to very shallow depths. The production volume of those years can be judged from data provided in 1842 by the Caspian Chamber of the Department of State Property Ministry. It refers to 136 wells around Absheron, which produced 3,760 cubic metres (23,600 bbl) per year, and this oil was exported to Persia, where it was used for lighting as well as in ointments and other traditional remedies.

See post #9..... Azerbaijan is a 97% Muslim State.

Anyway they wouldn't be still ''sitting in desert huts hoarding goats if it weren't for us.'' My point is completely valid, you know it, I know it, anyone with a properly functioning brain knows it.....mmm so maybe you don't. :think:

:yes:

so your attempt at proving they were all ready using oil shows that what ?

they dug 3 feet into the Earth and let it gush out or set it on fire as a fucking light ?

and they were exporting oil yes and again for what ?

medicine ? my point exactly

go ahead an see what the fuck you can heal with raw bitumen you total lunatic

however I agree that Persia was once an example of what a prosperous nation could be and one with a colorful history

they were once world leaders in fine goods and now look at it

chocked by Muslim fanatics and do you know something ?

the 1979 revolution in Iran was led by commies and Islamists

and when they had successfully sent the Shah into exile guess what happened ?

The Islamists killed the Commies and took complete control of it

I think this should be a fucking good lesson for the commies in the west who think they can use Islam to fuck with us

Left Liberal and Progressive useful Idiots will get brutally sodomized, their throats slit, and thrown of the top of a high building if the Muslims win.
If the Commies win they get 10 years hard labor in the Gulag or lined up against the wall and shot.
But if the Nationalists win they'll just have their welfare, food stamps, UBI's, and subsidies cut. And they might even have to get real jobs.
Guess who Leftists hate?

The indoctrinated neo marxists hate anything that could halt the '' progress '' of communism

Most of them don't even know they are doing it either

It's the language of equality that seduced them and yet they are so bewitched by this they refuse to look at the actual results of such endeavors around the world
