Japan Prepares To Suspend Iran Oil Imports Over US Pressure - Media

Japan’s major oil companies are preparing to halt the crude oil import from Iran in October because Tokyo fears that the US can sanction countries importing Iranian oil, AFP reported on August 3, citing Jiji Press agency.

“We’ve been saying we will observe a government decision [on Iranian oil imports], but we can’t comment further as we don’t disclose information on individual trades,” a spokeswoman for wholesaler Showa Shell Sekiyu told AFP.

Japan is allegedly seeking to get a waiver that would allow it to continue importing Iranian oil. According to Japanese Trade Minister Hiroshige Seko, his country has been negotiating on this issue with the US since August. Nonetheless, it’s unlikely that the US will ease its stance on Iran and its oil export.

Puppet government anyone? Do they actually need United States of Trump’s permission? Does Japan’s Emperor know about this or Abe hides all this from him.


There’s this picture where Abe stood behind Trump sitting in a chair where Merkel slammed the desk and glaring at Trump ? I think that picture is the best depiction.

Oh yes, I remember that now. Thanks.


The Japanese government has no dignity because it is made in Washington and is US slave that is why they cannot hurt US regimes.


Sovereignty is a terrible thing to lose. I suggest the Japanese don servants robes to please their masters and end the disguise.

You stupid slant eyed idiots. The Yanks say jump and you jump, the Yanks said nuke you and you were nuked; you should be ashamed of yourselves and I hope that the next tornado eliminates you. Pathetic.

The slant eyed comment is stupid and it is racist supremacist Jews ordering Japan not their USSA slaves who have to swear an oath / pledge of allegiance to Israel and their racist supremacist Jewish slave masters above any other oath to America.
See former congress woman says USSA Congress forced to sign loyalty oath to Racist supremacist global Jewish confederate slave empire Israel above their oaths to America, its Israel not America first. Its not an oath of loyalty to Britain or Russia above America. So its the Zionist empire not the Anglo Zionist empire.
Congress forced to sign loyalty oath to Racist supremacist global Jewish confederate slave empire dictatorship of Israel.
Despite AIPAC’s efforts to get him un-elected he was re-elected Congress anyhow, unlike the great and fearless American Hero former US Representative Cynthia McKinney, a true American Patriot who tells the truth, the whole truth.
Representative McKinney refused to sign this AIPAC Loyalty Oath to put Israel first even over America, which of course would be a direct violation of the Oath of Office any Member of Congress takes upon being seated.
Why is it such a serious matter to get these signers of the AIPAC Loyalty Oath out of Congress? The reason is obvious, without these Traitors who are sellouts to AIPAC and Israel, America could not have been transformed into a virtual province of Israel.
The only Member of the sitting US Congress we can document so far that has refused to sign the AIPAC Loyalty Oath to put Israel first even before America is Representative Walter Jones.

Thanks for the advise + links. Cheers.

This action by the Japanese leaders shows that are still a lapdog, subservient slave to their US masters. The over 39,000 US military personnel stationed there are to ensure that this occupation continues. I am sure that there are many compliant leaders who benefit from this: US military spending in the country, a false sense of Uncle Stupid protecting them from an imaginary threat from China and access to the latest military hardware. The US and Japan are two self-serving, sneaky idiots in this alliance. Japan is using the US as their protector (at huge expense to the US taxpayer and borrowed money) and the US is ensuring that Japan never attacks the US ever again. I wonder if the geniuses at the US State department and Pentagon remember the following dates from yesteryear:

February 8, 1904: The Japanese Navy attacks Russian Navy ships in Port Arthur, China to start the Russo-Japanese War.
September 18, 1931: Japanese agents blow up a section of the railroad in northern China and blame it on China so they can invade and occupy Manchuria.
July 7, 1937: Japan begins all-out war near Peking as a result of one of its soldiers going missing during a night time exercise.
December 7, 1941: The Japanese Navy attacks the US Navy Pacific base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.

Probably not. Most people in the US would have the blank stare of an ignorant idiot like a rat looking into the eyes of a cobra or start giggling. Would any country in their sober, right mind trust the Japanese? As with the relation with Germany the US is there to keep the Russians (in this case the Chinese) out and the respective countries down and subservient.

Nipponese cowards…. what can be expected from an enslaved cuck nation?


Once upon a time, Japan was a rising economy, very similar to China today.
The USA told Japan to revalue its currency, so it could no longer compete with the USA, Japan being a colony of the USA agreed.(Plaza accord).
President Donald Duck recently tried the same thing with China, but China being a free nation told the US @#$% off.

Japan will do whatever the USA tells it to do, they are really still a feudal society, and so will obey their Shogun.

Could the Trilateral Commission, and other participants in the “vile entanglement of Leftism and Global Deep State”, be involved in this Japanese decision to suspend the imports of the oil of Persia?

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
