The US Must Support Iran People and Their Resistance

The US sanctions on Iran are hitting the Regime so hard that its mullahs are trying to appeal to the International Criminal Court to stop them, which must be the last-ditch attempt of a dying Regime. Why else would a Regime responsible for so many atrocities actually seek to bring themselves to the attention of the body that should be bringing them to justice?

So, it is clear that the Regime is dying and that sanction is spurring the death on, which is why Donald Trump must make decisions about how best to help the Iranian people achieve their much-wanted freedom.

Mere days after Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei asked Russian President Vladimir Putin to work with the Iran Regime to “rein in” the United States, an Iranian official has accused Russia and Saudi Arabia of “embracing” US sanctions against Iran.

Hossein Kazempour Ardebili, Iran’s Governor for the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), said: “[Donald] Trump's efforts to cut Iran's access to the global crude market has prompted Russia and Saudi Arabia to take the market hostage.”

Iran’s Bazaar

Trouble in Iran’s Bazaar

Tehran’s Grand Bazaar has thousands of shops and stalls crammed into its sprawling streets, each selling various wares, but each of them has one important thing in common: they’re suffering as a result of the Regime’s actions.

This leads to young sales assistants wanting to move abroad for a better life, buyers with little buying power, and, of course, large anti-regime protests. The Bazaar is often seen as a bellwether for the overall sentiment in Iran – evident in the large protests against the Regime in June - and one kitchenware shop provides an interesting microcosm for the Iranian people right now.

Iranian Oil

The U.S. Puts Pressure on Iranian Oil Customers to Bring Exports to Zero

Since last May, Iran’s customers have been pressured to cut their purchases of Iranian oil and freeze out OPEC’s third largest producer from the world oil market. In a recent statement, National Security Advisor John Bolton said that the U.S. wants Iran’s oil exports to drop to zero.

Following the U.S. withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal, the U.S. is re-imposing sanctions on Iran, and has threatened secondary sanctions on any country that continues to buy oil from Iran. So far, the campaign seems to have been effective. In the first half of August, Iran’s oil exports fell by 600,000 bpd, plunging from 2.32 million bpd to 1.68 million bpd. Iran’s exports have been falling all year, and reached their lowest level in four months by July, before taking a real plunge in August.


As U.S. Sanctions Near, China’s Ship-Owners Quit Hauling Iranian Crude

Editor 23 August 2018

According to ship-tracking data compiled by Bloomberg, the state-run National Iranian Tanker Company owns the 17 ships used to carry oil from the Islamic Republic to China in July and August. The data shows the contrast between this and the prior three months, when almost half the vessels that made the journey in were owned by companies in China. It appears that China’s shipowners are shunning Iran’s oil before U.S. sanctions targeting Iran’s crude exports snap back into effect in early November, even though it is reported that China has rejected a U.S. request to halt purchases from Iran.
