U.S. Threatens Russia, China, EU With New Sanctions Over Buying Iranian Oil

The US is considering an option to impose sanctions against Russia, China and EU states for buying Iranian oil, US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said during a hearing before the House Financial Services Committee.

“We intend to enforce sanctions on them [China], on Russia, on Europe and others against Iran oil,” Mnuchin answered to a question if the US would impose sanctions on China for importing Iranian oil.

Washington has repeatedly threatened that it is set to impose new sanctions on Iran and urged all world countries, including its allies, not to stop purchasing Iranian oil and to cut trade ties with the country. The Trump administration claimed that those states that fail to do so will be blacklisted by the US.

Earlier this year, President Trump announced that the US is withdrawing from Iran nuclear deal and is increasing pressure on the country.

      Al Capone was a serious person and did business with the Jewish mafia of casinos and prostitution, became very powerful thanks to the sanctions on alcohol, such as those put by Trump.

  • Daniel Castro

    Isn’t sanctioning the whole world the equivalent of sanctioning yourself?

    • William Carrington

      More like suctioning !

    More empty threats by a megalomaniac midset, financially they might try to impede the dynamics between Iran, Russia, China, India and EU, they would not be able to do anything militarily.

    The American psychopath mindset is to be full of hubris and push the envelope as far as they can get away with. I see Russia, China and EU cooperating more closely and distancing themselves from the psychopath hubris.

  • Hisham Saber

    Im sure the Chinese, Russians are trembling at this insulting bit of news. India, which buys lots of Iranian oil might succumb to Zionist pressure, being that India and Israel are close, and India is a vassal of the west.

    Iran will/can lower its price for oil to China and Russia, to offset any sanctions. As far a the U.S. ‘ blacklisting’ China and Russia, that’s just nonsense, and Trump admin getting desperate.

    In fact, Iran is a central, key node in China’s multi-trillion dollar BRI , actually indispensable ally for China as iy seeks Iran as its ‘gateway’ into the Middle East, by way of the BRI. Just lst month, the first non-stop passenger / cargo / supply mega train left China for Iran. The trip took 14 days, instead of the 5 weeks by shipping. Iran is slated, and already an observer in the SCO, and integrated in Eurasian economic organizations and infrastructure.

    So these kind of threats are hollow, and mean nothing.

    • Gary Sellars

      The appropriate response by Russia and China is an immediate elevation of Iran to being a FULL MEMBER of the SCO. Tell the Trumpian and his cunt-nation to FUCK THEMSELVES.

        Well accordingly to Lindsey Graham “ISIS and other radical Sunni groups PRAY that Assad stays in power in Syria. That allows them to recruit members to their cause in perpetuity”. Well said by no one with any real credibility in Foreign policy ,while Illegally entering a country without going through it’s customs office or border crossings.

          Lindsay Graham is a closet faggot who refuses to emerge from the closet as his SC voters wouldn’t approve. A despicable little cocksucker and a true grotesque…

          ISIS and US/EU/Turkey/GCC/Zio backed takfiris are a dying breed in Syria. They are fucked, and they know it.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            What you didn’t like my Jed Clampett quote it summed it up nicely and I did think Jethro was smarter sadly Max Baer jr. is dead, R.IP.

      lowering the price iran can pay will hurt. Theyll make less but maybe theyll survive?

      If you look at his actions from the point of view that I suggested than you’ll start to see “method in his madness”.

      He is safely tethered in Londonistan.

    The US sure loves blackmailing the world.

      Schoolground bully on steroids… When he grows up, he’ll be working part-time in a carwash, while his victims go on to be professionals and wealthy businessmen.

  • iosongasingsing

    So we Europeans also become rogue states like Libya, Iraq, North Korea and Iran? What the fuck, we must immediately align with Russia and China before ending Gaddafi.

  • Gary Sellars

    Who the f do these misbegotten CUNTS think they are? Fuck the seppos, fuck them to the lowest depths of Hell. A more arrogant and spitefully stupid people has never existed on this 3rd rock.

  • Gary Sellars

    There is zero chance the Chinese and Russians will even consider doing a Chamberlain and appeasing this stupid Orange-haired seppo dotard. Give in to these cunts just once and you create a permanent collar for your neck and a whip for your back. Anytime the Washington cabal demands fealty from its minions and satraps, they will re-issue their threats and sit back to enjoy the obeisance of the untermensch.

    • Sinbad2

      That’s the idea, the US works its evil like this.

      First accuse an innocent person of a crime, then punish that person, if anyone tries to defend the innocent person, they then punish that person.

      The system permeates America, they use it against anyone who tries to defend Trump, and any nation that tries to defend Venezuela Syria or Yemen.

      It’s the lynch mob mentality, and Americans love lynchings.

      • Gregory Casey

        It appears that Trump has himself become a Master of this system of American “Justice”

  • georgeking

    Let us hope Trump hurries up and finishes blacklisting the rest of the World so it can get on building a better life for everyone on the Planet without the USoA.

  • Rafael

    Bravo!!! The arrogant and stupid US globalist politicians all included, the Trump factions and the “Deep State”, because they are showing us how cleaver they are to isolate US from the rest of the world.

  • James

    Well I can’t see Russia and China stopping. The US has already given them not much to lose. Cut off from SWIFT? Well that just accelerates the ascension of gold-backed trade, and basically the end of any use for the US dollar. They can then connect foreign countries up to their own settlement systems and away they go, I imagine.

  • Joe Kerr

    The zionist obsession with Iran is now exposing itself full on in all its rabid grotesqueness, dripping more saliva with each new threat and high-octave howling like a hound barking at the moon. The PNAC plan has reached a dead end in Syria, with the only option left being confronting Russia and China and hoping they step back. The Novichuk events are just the start, as no evil is beyond those who organised 9-11 and 7/7. Russia and China need to polish their weapons and be prepared, lest they’re taken by surprise.

  • John Mason

    How about getting this BS over and done with, nuke the US, quite obvious they are begging for it.
