Sunset Europe and Iranian oil

118
The Lord God did not consider it necessary to place oil and gas only where there are democratic regimes friendly to the United States.
Richard Cheney


It is finished! The proud proponents of global nuclear security, the French, who at one time disfigured half of Pacific Polynesia with nuclear tests, finally got rid of the Iranian oil they hated and already began to "punish" the Islamic republic for its unlimited nuclear ambitions, which threaten the security of the entire planet. The "example" of the French was followed by the great-power British, who, apparently, in the near future will have to manage their own North Sea oil reserves, the price of which has already exceeded 120 dollars per barrel. So, Europe, as she herself wanted, initiating the imposition of an embargo, is slowly losing Iranian oil exports. The most interesting in this stories the fact that the matter is not at all in an embargo, to the full introduction of which is still far away, but in the fact that Iran shut off the European oil valve first, independently and without any emotions and regrets, having done so calmly and with dignity.

Press secretary of the Ministry of Petroleum Industry of Iran Alizer Nikzad-Rahbar: “Iran has no difficulties with the export of raw materials. We have our own clientele, and we have decided on alternatives. We will work with new customers who will easily replace British and French companies. ”

Although the Iranian oil department does not specify who exactly will become its “new customers”, we are certainly talking about the main buyers of Iranian oil - China and India, who have repeatedly warned the West that they are not going to refuse Iranian energy supplies. For example, India only in January increased exports of Iranian oil by as much as 40 percent. Indian Deputy Foreign Minister Ranjan Mathai recently made a statement, eloquently testifying to the independent position of the Indian leadership on the Iranian issue. Here is his excerpt: “India intends to obey only UN sanctions. Other similar measures against Iran do not concern us. We are not going to adapt to them. ” Indeed, what does Europe have to do with this? What is the business of the Hindus, whose numbers have long passed over a billion, before the freezing Old World, besides balancing on the verge of financial collapse? They need to think about themselves. Why should India think about finding an alternative to Iranian oil, which, moreover, is at their side, so it may not cost too much and end very soon? Or was it proposed to the Hindus to support holy British unity, speaking in support of the position of their former metropolis, meekly throwing aside their own national interests? What did the Europeans expect? - Revaluation of own capabilities and self-worth is obvious.

The termination of exports by Iran can be very painful for Europe, especially if we take into account the deadlines set by the EU foreign ministers, who are known to have agreed on the introduction of the notorious oil embargo against Iran in late January. The arrogance of Europeans surpassed all reasonable limits. The term to which EU members dependent on Iranian imports should have been abandoned was 1 July 2012. Thus, the Europeans naively believed that the Iranians would wait for this day like a ship, enjoying the last opportunity to please the European “master” and get from him, even for the last time, the coveted euro currency and precious dollars, and will not look for any alternative. The Europeans have not yet realized the simple thing, which in recent years has become an indisputable truth: the arrogance of Europe is not supported by anything but its ambitions. The decline of Europe is not empty words. This is an objective modern reality. Europe, unfortunately, is no longer the center of the world.

It should be recognized that Iran is winning over Europeans a beautiful victory, at least of a local character, reaffirming the status of a state to be reckoned with, which continues to be respected in the world, having for this not only political, but also quite tangible economic grounds. By its refusal to export oil to the UK and France, Iran seems to say: “Well, sons, if you don’t want meat, gnaw bones, and we will live without you ... You don’t need our oil - fine. Other people really need it. ” And this position can not be called a bluff. Again, the world has changed. The hegemony of industrial Europe, which the rest of the world provided with raw materials, irretrievably sunk into oblivion, but it does not seem to believe in this.

If Iran’s confident position on the embargo and its seemingly paradoxical steps to speed up the cessation of oil supplies to Europe add a very serious argument in the form of a possible total mining of the Strait of Hormuz, through which the lion’s share of Saudi exports to the West passes, the Islamic republic is already seen as some kind of Persian tiger, capable not only not to be offended, but also to dictate its conditions to the completely overwhelming Europeans.

    And about the bone, it's cool. Looks like old European farts have not yet realized that the 21st century is going on and India has not been a colony of Britons for a long time, but the bitch on which they were sitting cracked under their weight. Looks like the time for western sunset is being selected thanks to the hands of the same west, and of their brothers from across the ocean, to which the kirdyk is also being imperceptibly selected.

          Yeah, as if they were sick, they would have been happy, having lost resources and market control and geopolitical influence. That is why, probably, the European empires, and then the USA, throughout their entire history, tore each other's throats for colonies, dominions and other mandated territories. That is why they are so reluctant, and often bloody, parted with control of the newly independent states. That is why they are trying so hard to plant loyal governments within their reach. That is why, in your opinion, they are ready to tolerate millions of refugees from North Africa, the Middle East and Asian countries who threaten the Islamization of Europe and its transformation into a European caliphate. The only question is, then the American AUG will iron, and why? Really themselves or their allies. Or will they continue, with the help of their most powerful and super-expensive Armed forces, to kill the civilian population of other countries disinterestedly .. out of sports interest? So if the question concerns the collection of suitcases, then they will have to leave. To your home! You think there please - maybe you are not quite right .. or not right at all. Or you, knowing that you were wrong, just said so - because it is a shame for your new homeland, huh? By the way, you ask the indigenous people there. and how the Germans relate to the Turkish community (and the rest too). If they say that they are happy .. then you do not believe them please - this is a lie ....

        Americans and NATO in general should not worry that Iran can block the Strait of Hormuz, this is its full right. I don’t understand why Europe listens to the USA and makes itself worse? The United States recently completely stopped helping Europe, it would be time for them to be independent, and if they say that they stop buying Russian gas, they will immediately agree to harm themselves

        Well, of course. Since the price of oil has risen, then Russia has more from the sale of oil, the price of gas is also tied to oil. And Iran, selling oil, is guided by world prices. So she does not lose anything. And here is Europe in the ass.

              The point is that Iran is ahead of schedule to stop deliveries - the Europeans took a time out before the summer, hoping to calmly work out both re-export and other schemes for changing direct supplies of Iranian oil during this time. The sudden cessation of direct supplies will disorganize the work of those European enterprises that have not had time to carry out such work - so that their losses will be even higher. In a crisis, this is certainly not an ice.

          I can say for Germany since I have been living here for 18 years.
          39-40% of goods go from Germany to America. If Germany suddenly loses this sales market. Then everything is "extinguish the light of sushi oars." After all, 80-85% leaves Germany for export. Without such a market, there will immediately be an "Arab spring". Here half of the people understand and speak openly
          "We need to be friends with the Russians." 30% against friendship. Even the old ss say

            IMHO, the Germans think correctly. In my opinion, today the only possible serious alliance that can influence the strategic alignment of forces in the world and prevent a war is the axis Berlin-Moscow-Tokyo.
            True, the Japanese are unlikely to go to him immediately because of the territories. But for Germany, such an alliance would be strategically important and valuable. Since the new redistribution of the world is not far off, and the Germans need Russia's support in order to regain some of the lost in the past (In Poland, for example, or in France)

              I will be in order.
              Europe, obeying the United States, certainly plays against its interests. However, this behavior is far from new. The seal of dollars and the first violin in the orchestra belong to the United States. The states are also responsible for the material well-being of most European leaders and politicians who have fallen into their posts, most likely due to the financial and organizational support of the same Anglo-Saxons. As already mentioned, Europe is the sacrifice that the Anglo-Saxons will make for the formation of a new world order (Europe - in the form in which it now exists. One state should be formed in its place).
              The main reason why Iran still does not live is that it encroached on the holy of holies. Dollar. He questioned the existing financial system, proposed to conduct interstate settlements in national currency. Whatever he does, they will punish him, as punished Gaddafi, who wanted to enter the calculation in gold. To set a precedent for the Anglo-Saxons is too dangerous. If the rest of the countries (and there are already enough willing) switch between themselves to settlements in gold, national currencies or barter - to the Khan dollar, the financial system will begin to crumble. (True, in order to finally finish it, you must first nationalize the money issue and the Central banks of the countries). This will not allow England and the United States (primarily the United States) to make money from the air, and their economy will collapse, and Ales will come to the world power of bankers.
              And the union of Russia and Germany is the worst dream for Anglo-Saxon politicians. Has anyone heard of the Heartland theory? It says: he who runs the Heartland rules the world. The heartland includes just the territories that lie in the place of Russia. Russia is the key to Eurasia. And Germany is the key to Europe. If these countries enter into an alliance, they will be able to dictate terms to everyone on the continent. To squeeze the USA out of Europe, to rot England. True, China will remain, but this problem will be easier to solve.
              Yes, an alliance between Moscow and Berlin would be a wonderful gift for our countries.

            I also think that it is time for Europe to think with its own head. She is close to one continent. She should be worried about stability and order on this continent and not the plans and desires of a distant friend across the ocean. The fact that Europe exports half of its goods to the United States does not mean that it is not necessary to have an opinion. These geopolitical wars are waged by transnational corporations from the USA and England, pursuing their economic interests and not the interests of the people of Europe or the peoples of the Middle East.

Petrol, diesel fuel for cars and ships, kerosene for aircraft, various light hydrocarbons for chemistry and many other useful things are made from oil.

    Thought is not a topic, but from the category of European decency. Before the Libyan revolution, in Western and American banks, Kadaffi's personal account had about 50 billion bins (maybe I'm wrong, correct). During the revolution, money was frozen. After the cynical assassination of the general, European countries offered the revolutionaries a loan for "the needs of the revolution", for future oil supplies. the question is, where did the general's money go? I am silent about amers, but Europe is building out of itself a group of decent democrats. About the large sums on Kadaffi's account, the topic was closed. But the general lent money to Sarkozy when he tearfully asked him for the election campaign.

    It is very important for Russia in this period of time to provide all possible support to the countries resisting the "new world order" without direct participation in armed conflicts. But the main thing is to make a breakthrough and breakthrough in technology, thereby taking away the main economic trump card of the West. There is a focus on this. Steps are being taken. While it is hard, with a creak, not without mistakes (for 20 years you can even unlearn how to walk), but they do. Yesterday's Putin's development of the military-industrial complex as one of the means for a technological breakthrough, remember. God grant that. Then steps like this Iranian one will become the norm in international practice. And the conversation with the West will be conducted in a different tone. By the way, this will be economically a free market. Only real.

    I think that really, a local, its own, small victory was won by Iran. I’m also sure that he didn’t deliver any special blows to this Europe, it won’t lead to oil-bearing collapse, especially to collapse. Western European capital, in situations like this, always demonstrates training and mutual assistance. But, in the EU countries there are ordinary people who choose their own government. Their reaction is important. Especially when (if necessary) because of the United States, not only think about heat and gorging, but also fight, God forbid, with Iran.

          They live better than us, because they know how to manage and introduce new things, but at the household level they really take laughter, but really like children. We would have managers like in Germany under our brains, then for sure Russia would have put everyone in the belt.

    The information war, now economic.
    The position of the Persians can only be supported, and in the information and economic war they only won in this game, but others will also be visible, and here everything is very vague. Hard times await Europe in the person of Greece, Italy, and other southern countries, another nail is driven into the coffin of the European Union, so everything is still staggering in addition to problems with energy resources.
    It seems that the Greeks will have to actively seek alternative sources of hydrocarbons, and they already exist - the shelf of Cyprus. The catch is that there are 2 Cyprus - Southern (Greek) and Northern (Turkish), and the disputes between them will only intensify soon, in the summer the Republic of Cyprus will preside in the EU Parliament, which the Turks are very, very dislike. The Turks seem ready to start military operations in order to gain control of the shelf, and in the conditions of rising oil prices in the world, this desire will only strengthen in them.
    The United States is still only observers, no matter what, although they and Israel are the main initiators of the conflict.

    Do not flatter yourself, on the eve of the strikes on Iran, the European Union secured itself against a shortage of Iranian oil by having a home gas station - Libya, for which the operation "Death of Gaddafi" was carried out by NATO, + the Friendship pipeline from Russia to the EU, and the PRC will fill the shortage of Iranian oil for the Saudi account, the Indians also have enough Arab oil ...

    There will be enough oil for everyone if the Persians do not hit those who have it, so that there is justice - this is the UAE, Qatar, Saudi Arabia in the first place. Fearing to lose customers, some of them, bypassing the Strait of Hormuz, are actively building land branches, others are creating reserves. What is the use ?! So what should happen in the event of an intervention so that the Persians do not do what they intended - to block the flow of hydrocarbons from the Persian Gulf ?!
    Conclusion: do not talk with Iran from a position of strength, and make plans for its occupation. But it is beneficial for Russia and the PRC to maintain a coherent Iran on its borders, rather than get another Afghan.

It’s time for Russia to get down to business. ABM put-buy hydrocarbons in three ways (you can’t block it, all the same, houses are heated by gas from innocent people)

    With its refusal to export oil to the UK and France, Iran seems to be saying: “Well, sons, you don’t want meat - bite the bones, and we will live without you ... You don’t need our oil - fine. Other people really need it. ”

    Russia should learn to buy Iranian oil and push it on the European market at a discount, but the trouble is the game on different problems of the countries is not our forte !! We are increasingly giving away something on the topic !!!!

    Well, let's assume that you are all right and that a real goat came to old Europe. But as one of the laws of physics says (either Gay-Lusak or Boyle-Mariotte I don’t remember exactly), a holy place does not exist empty. And this means that someone should take the place of the USA and Europe. I propose to arrange a vote in the first two places. My opinion: 1- China, 2- Muslims. Vote your opinions.

      I propose option No. 3: the same Europeans (against whom I have nothing) but with a more liberal policy. Namely: without any missile defense, without any presentations and sanctions in relation to the developing states, and, most importantly, without the illustrious NATO (be it amiss). How do you like the option? I checked out your irony.

    Hardly believe in the collapse of these countries. And dear mikula, you could not remember anything else but the Jews? I just like it when they start saying what stupid people live in the West and America, if you are stupid, then we have a country of downs or is it comforting you that fools live well but smart ones are bad, then the smartest people live in Africa following your logic? Why is it that the little one who wants to go to Russia to work and study is basically all trying to get out of here with a good opportunity. If you haven’t been to EU countries, you don’t need to judge by the development of people by whose stories and jokes. Everyone wants to go to BMW Mercedes Audi and the same thing about clothes, and in our west, the current is caviar and vodka, oil and gas, and in FIG they don’t need anything. So do not make people laugh

    China will not be able to take the "holy place" anytime soon. For a simple reason, they do not have enough military "authority" that would be reckoned with at least by the same Muslims, and the same is about Islamic states. To ascribe the leadership of Russia to nothing else. Russia has enormous potential, allowing it to maintain its leadership without occupying a "holy place". Today Russia is the stronghold of any sovereignty, any state, subject to market relations. A non-aggressive Russia is primarily beneficial for Russia itself. While the mighty of this world are sharing influence in the old ways, Russia is establishing market relations under the noise, China is following the same path, which takes over from Russia almost all of its domestic policy, and part of its foreign policy.

      If China adopted the policy of Russia, it would be an endangered, crumbling, poor state, mired heavily in corruption. But who would be proud that they have nuclear weapons and therefore are afraid of them all.

      But unfortunately for the outside world, the Chinese in 79 followed a completely different path. Now this is the second economy of the planet which will be the first in this decade. With all this, the Asian dragon is still trying to pretend to be a kitten, so as not to frighten off the neighbors on the planet.
      And what can Russia teach China other than Soviet military technology?

        And what can Russia teach China other than Soviet military technology?

        2 cosmodromes built on Soviet technologies in the PRC, trained specialists in many areas of knowledge, weapons - everything that provides the PRC today is proud of its homeland, and Russia will not be proudly alone in the face of the fascist Central Committee led by the United States.
        The West will break its teeth from such enemies as Russia and China. And the construction of missile defense in Europe is like a litmus test for lice and genuine plans to capture the world.
        If Russia had not existed then, China would have been on the verge of balancing; if there had been China, Russia would have remained alone against the United Nations on resolutions on Syria and Iran.
        The time has come to deal with the leading and directing force of the United States in the economy, politics and the military. In addition to Russia and China, there is no one to do this. Well, certainly not stagnant Ukraine, caved in to Western democratic values, lulled by flatterers who promise heavenly pleasure to be in NATO and in the Euro zone. Here Ukraine has not gone far from Georgia, Moldova, claiming to become centers of destabilization of border regions.

          China has already absorbed almost all the technologies he needs, which he wanted and went on. The goal of China is not ostentatious posturing before the West, but cutting off its population and economy with necessary resources and living space. And the fact that this is not enough for all of this on the planet is already clear ...

    You just ask yourself why now in our country, young people want to be policemen and officials, it’s understandable not to let everyone live well in the country. And as long as our country takes the 143rd place in corruption, having caught Uganda and Nigeria in 2011. Will so fig live.
    China lies, in fact, it depends on the West if in the theory the West and the USA refuse Chinese goods, then it will return to the last century. Muslims, too, who of them do you think that she represents the UAE that sits on oil. Of all the countries that can exist without other countries, this is Russia that can provide itself with everything from food to metals, pure water, gas, oil, etc. our country from the west except electronics, well, nothing is needed.
