MSLSD, how stupid they are. Last week Europe cut all ties with Iran and no longer import from them. So the idiot Oil Minister is trying to claim he cut England and France off and MSLSD is letting them get away with it because they are to liberal to report the real news that happened the week before.

Their biggest European customer is Italy. Let us see what they do about Italy. Britain and France a relatively smaller customers who can easily get it somewhere else. Iran will be crippled if the can't sell their oil.

I guess they expect India to purchase this extra oil. Although oil has never had a hard time finding a new home.

If we really had been fighting wars for oil, we would have taken them out before they attack us.

Oil is a highly fungible commodity.
Nearly everyone in the civilized world uses it.
Someone will buy it.
Probably China

Iran just shot themselves in the foot with this action. Without european buyers, Iran just severly limited their financial income. How do they expect to fund their actions now?
