Iran sets up private oil export to beat sanctions

Associated Press --
An official says Iran has set up a private oil export group in an attempt to bypass a European ban on buying Iranian oil.

The ban is part of Western sanctions aimed at pressuring Iran over its nuclear program.

Hasan Khosrowjerdi, head of the Iranian oil products exporters union, said Monday the first contract for exporting Iran's crude through the private sector will be signed next week.

Formation of the private group is the latest sign that the sanctions are taking a toll on Iran. The West suspects Iran is aiming to build nuclear weapons. Iran denies that.

Iran is trying to find a way to sell their crude oil to anybody that will buy it and get by the sanctions while doing so. If something works or there is a possible loophole, they will keep selling crude oil until they are shut down.
But, don't piss off the sanction countries too much or there will be things coming out of the sky that can really, really ruin your day - FOREVER!

So since they are telling people why can't it be stopped, I'm sure the offending country gets money from the US.

How is this supposed to work?

How stupid does Iran think the EU is?

How stupid is Iran? (Wait - don't answer that.)

Do they really expect to have this work? (Sure its still from Iran, but its from a different exporter. Ooo, ooo, can I buy the Strait of Hormuz as well?)

Iran is shape-shifting.

Sanctions are a fools errand.

And we have no shortage of fools running things: BHO, Clinton, Biden, Pelosi, Reid, Holder, Chu, Jackson, Napolitano, Geithner, Panneta, Salazar, Bryson, Sebelius, La Hood, Arne Duncan, Valerie Jarrett & David Plouffe.

And that's saying nothing about MSNBC, Media Matters, Think Progress, Tide Foundation, Jeremiah Wright, Black Panthers Party, George Soros, Occupy Wall Street, emasculating the US Military, caring not a whit about the second amendment, distorting the first amendment and creating law from the bench.

The US government as currently constituted is daily destroying its founding document: The United States Constitution.

Yes, we have our own shape-shifting government to deal with.
