US threatens Asian region with penalties for continuing Iran oil purchases

Activist Post

According to the RT report below, Barack Obama is set to impose penalties on India for continuing to purchase oil from sanction-strapped Iran.  A vague new U.S. law seeks also to sanction any country that is not willing to reduce its purchase of Iranian oil. However, India has expressed reluctance to abide by unilateral sanctions that are not legally binding.  India's Oil Minister has stated that they will continue to purchase from Iran as needed for their growing energy demands, while perhaps turning to gold as a means of sidestepping any attempt at imposing sanctions.  This could be merely a face-saving measure, as other players in the region including China, Japan, and South Korea have taken quick measures to reduce imports following U.S. demands.  Once again, the U.S. proves that ally or not, every sovereign nation must cave to Washington's imperial objectives, or else.  This latest move seems designed to further stress the region and force a shift in the oil economy toward Western-controlled interests, as the U.S. is conveniently offering to broker deals with Saudi Arabia and Iraq as a solution to the problem.

Way to go Obama! Belligerence against Iran has now alienated India, one of the few economies that is actually solvent and growing! Honestly, India should re-think military ties to the US, whose only aim is probably getting India in a war with Pakistan or China.

Thanks Anon, well said. It's insane that there is so little real diplomacy between nations-it's the only thing not "on the table".

Obama is the real terrorist here. Forget what we have been told, this guy is doing more harm to the world than all of the "terrorist" groups combined. At least they are trying to stop him, we could do the same, civil disobedience 2012. OBAMA = END OF DAYS>

India, peaceful country, great history, pacifist traditions. In addition to trying to get India to go to war with Pakistan, the US is working very hard to support Monsanto in India.
War profiteering, the destruction of family farms and death is what the USA is bringing to India.
Democrats and Republicans do this working in lock step together.

The more peaceful the country, the greater risk it has of being extorted. Nice group we're dealing with.

indian prime minster is an american agent that is why he was helicoptered as pm without being elelcted even a single time by the people of india.
How India is being treacherously enslaved by angloamerican agents likes of (unelectable and defeated in democratic election ) this Pm

manmohan singh and the english media inside india.

a great misconception is that so caled liberalization and globalization was brought to india by this manmohan singh. In fact soon after

victory in Iraq war in February 1991 the bush no. first declared a new world order in which he explicitly said that he will open up the

world for american business. In fact his trade secretary immeditealy announced that she will make sure that America open up the thighs

of third world countries (Like as with a vice ) as a slowly and surely to American business(true analogy to a rape)-that was given the name

Liberalization and globalization for which the british and americans had been working since 1986. What was left for america to do was

install malleable stooges inside the third world countries. Especially those types who are unelectable and have no mass base of their own--

in other words who are not electable democratically but installed from above through media and other manipulations.

this manmohan singh in india fulfilled that criteria of being unliked and unelectable insignificant person who was willing to act on order

of his American masters -if they had asked him to turn communist he would have done that. It is this traitor manmohan singh who informed

America of impending Indian nuclear test in 1993 and also who openly said that Iran Pakistan India pipe line would be difficult to finance

-just because his Americans masters did not want that!

World's Largest Known Democracy is HARDLY known 'TRULY' to the WORLD:

Let me start by providing some inputs regarding 'INDIA':

The reason why INDIA is nose diving to 95th position on WORLD CORRUPTION INDEX from 87th last year, that makes 'INDIA' fastest growing CORRUPT NATION!

Galatians 6:7-8 (NKJV)
7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.
8 For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.

TAKE NOTE AND KNOW WHAT GOES AROUND GOES AROUND AND THEIR DAYS ARE CERTAIN. USA Govt. is committing Spiritual Suicide!!

Sanctions, similar to the ancient siege, are acts of war according to the Just War Theory as offered by Noam Chomsky and others.
If a war breaks out - we started it, as usual.

Bloomberg is lying about other Asian countries submitting to the USA. Living in Asia presently you don't read that. In fact, the Asian countries are becoming more self aware and are wanting to preceed with their business without US intervention. It is hard to distinguish the truth from lies unless you personally do "boots on the ground" or do enough research and read from different sources. China? No.

Don't be surprised to see another false flag in India! Don't forget that in 2008 the terrorist that led the attack was working for the FBI and DEA! Look up "David Coleman Headley The Times Of India".
