US provoke Iran
The West exerts all-round and increasing pressure on Iran to “soften the regime”, destabilize the situation in the country through growing discontent of the population with inflation and currency fever, falling living standards, splitting the ruling elites. In fact, the Islamic Republic is being provoked, like Japan, before Pearl Harbor in 1941.
Due to economic sanctions, the Islamic Republic loses 133 million dollars daily. Over the year, Iran may lose 48 billion, and the total value of annual exports of Iranian oil, according to OPEC, is 71,6 billion. In early July, the US Treasury Department increased the list of unreliable companies and individuals in Iran, which issued a kind of "black mark". The special list includes companies that bring currency to the country: National Iranian Tanker (serves the oil sector), and National Iranian Oil (through the companies located in the United Arab Emirates, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Switzerland, supplied export oil). According to the US Treasury Department, these companies and organizations are trying to hide their vessels by repainting them and sending them into the sea under the flags of other countries.
Since July 1, the European Union has refused to import, purchase and transport Iranian oil and oil products. The European Union has also banned financing and insurance related to these operations. As a result of the actions taken by the West, imports of Iranian oil fell to their lowest level in the last two decades - 1,1 million barrels daily against 2,2 million barrels per day in 2011 year. The losses are huge, especially considering the significant socio-economic programs that the Iranian government and the population of the country are implementing. The forecast of the International Energy Agency (IEA) for Tehran is also pessimistic: by the end of 2012, oil production in the country will decrease from 3,7 million barrels per day in January 2012 to 2,8 million, followed by a fall to 2,6 million in 2013.
In late July, US President Barack Obama personally confirmed the use of new sanctions against the Islamic Republic of Iran. The United States plans to issue a decree limiting the activities of Iranian firms in the petrochemical and energy sector and to prosecute those financial structures that transfer funds to banks that are at least somehow related to Tehran. Companies that cooperate with Iranian firms will also be subject to sanctions. Strengthen control over organizations that produce uranium for a country that provides ships for the transportation of oil, as well as companies acting as intermediaries in transactions for the purchase of technologies and services for the government of Iran. Companies supplying communications, tracking, radar reconnaissance, jamming, uniforms and equipment will also be subject to sanctions. The restrictions are really very tough, as stressed by the representatives of the US Congress. Both houses of the US Congress have already passed a bill approving new sanctions. The actions of the United States are aimed at the complete isolation of the Islamic Republic, which cannot but provoke a response from Tehran.
There is a strong pressure on other lines. The head of the American Defense Ministry, Leon Panetta, states that if the Iranian authorities do not give up on restricting the atomic program, Washington can apply the most severe measures against the Islamic Republic, including the military. Iran, like Russia, China, is doused with mud and in connection with the conflict in Syria. Western media and politicians presented the case that Tehran (like Moscow, Beijing) was responsible for the deaths of thousands of Syrian "civilians", supporting the "cannibal" regime of Bashar al-Assad. The longer the Syrian conflict lasts, the stronger the information war against Damascus, Tehran, Moscow and Beijing.
Work is underway to inflate the idea of "Great Azerbaijan" at the expense of Iran. US Congressman Dane Rohrabacher called for "supporting the struggle of southern Azerbaijanis for their independence." According to him, the “tyrannical regime” of Iran is the common enemy of the United States and the Azerbaijani people. Rohrabacher believes that the time has come for Azerbaijanis to win their freedom. He was supported by a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the House of Representatives, Michael McMahon. He called on the US administration to support Baku in the light of Iran’s threats.
Announced that in Qatar will place a powerful American radar station. The radar station in Qatar will complement radar stations in central Turkey (it entered service earlier this year) and in the Israeli Negev desert. These stations will be the eyes and ears for the 8-ths. US military group Al-Udeid military base in Qatar. It was built in 1999 year as a rear storage weapons, ammunition and ammunition, but then expanded its functions. On the base of Al-Udeid, the runway was built in 4,5 km, now it can accommodate 120 combat aircraft (moreover, most of them are in underground hangars). In addition, the United States is helping the Persian Gulf monarchies create a regional missile defense system. It was openly announced that the missile defense system has an anti-Iran dimension. The United States and the Arab Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), which includes Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Oman and Saudi Arabia, agreed to jointly counteract the IRI in an attempt to impede freedom of navigation in the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz. In September, the United States plans to hold large naval exercises in the Persian Gulf.
It is clear that in Tehran closely monitor all these processes. The Iranian elite is already preparing society for a big war and at the same time sends "signals" to the West about its readiness to fight. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei makes loud statements about the approach of the arrival of the hidden 12-go Imam (Mahdi), the last war in stories humanity and doomsday. A few days ago it was reported that the “last pre-war council” was held in Iran, where the supreme leader announced that the outbreak of war should be expected as soon as possible.
At the same time, we are seeing how, with the support of the West, an anti-Iranian Sunni bloc is being formed, which is increasingly distinctly opposed to Tehran. The Islamic world is split into two opposing blocs. On the anti-Iranian basis unite the Arab countries, Turkey. Creates the core of the Great Caliphate. On its way only Syria and Iran. The implementation of this project will be a disaster not only for Iran, but also for the whole of Eurasia. It will not be an independent “center of power”, but a weapon directed against Russia, India and China (and Europe).
