"Dirty water"

65
The economic ring around Iran continues to shrink. Recently, the European Union adopted another (already 19) package of sanctions against Tehran. As is known, the representatives of the European Union in the summer refused to buy crude Iranian oil, which dealt a rather significant blow to the financial system of the Islamic Republic. Now the Europeans, who are trying in every way to impose a cessation of nuclear research on Iran, decided to go even further and refused to buy Iranian gas, banned Iran from selling oil and gas equipment, metals and alloys, and also instructed insurance companies to refuse to insure Iranian short-term loans.

There is information that these sanctions are ready to support Turkey, which, although geographically and does not apply to the European Union, is trying with all its might to please the West, which is expressed, inter alia, in its excessive attention to the Syrian problem.

"Dirty water"
The commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), Mohammad Ali Jafari, is planning an environmental catastrophe in the Strait of Hormuz to temporarily lift international sanctions against Iran


By such measures, Brussels makes it clear to Tehran that even its rapid reorientation to the markets of Southeast Asia will not give an opportunity to overcome the severe economic crisis that has hit Iran over the past year.

The first crisis hit, which economic experts attributed precisely to the announcement and real manifestations of European sanctions against Iran, fell as early as the beginning of this year, when the national currency of the Islamic Republic began to sink against the US dollar and euro. In general, it would be difficult to imagine the independence of the fall of the Iranian currency from the activities of the financial systems of the West. Outwardly, everything looks extremely transparent and is described by economic laws: they say Iran was shackled in sanctions, the economy began to agonize, since the main raw material - Iranian oil - could not flow into European markets, and therefore the Iranian rial began to fall. However, with all due respect to modern economic laws, we must understand that any ups and downs of one or another world currency are primarily not associated with objective laws in the world of markets, but with the banal speculations of those who can push through any financial transactions. own position. After all, the rate of rial began to fall even before the Europeans completely refused to supply oil from Iran. Moreover, the rate of Iranian currency significantly subsided even when Iran entered into partnership agreements on the sale of additional volumes of crude oil to China. This state of affairs clearly indicates that the main reason for the fall of the Iranian economy is not at all in real combinations of hydrocarbon sales with their production, and certainly not in Iran’s problems with short-term and long-term insurance, but in financial manipulations, which able to change the situation in a given economy of the world without any external sanctions.

Obviously, Iran today is falling prey to a provoked financial boycott by the West, which is expressed, among other things, in the fall of the national currency. In particular, the Iranian rial today is simply impossible to exchange for a dollar or euro at the official rate. Now “black” exchangers are working, which set the exchange rate at the level of 35,5-36 thousand rials for 1 dollar. At the beginning of the year, the US dollar was worth about 20000 rials on the same “black” market, and in October 2011 its unofficial weighted average cost was determined at the level of 11-12 thousand rials. It turns out that in just a year, the Iranian currency rate fell simply catastrophically: the official value is more than 80%, but the unofficial value is 3 times.

It is obvious that the fall after the next sanctions package will only worsen, and therefore in Iran by the end of the year the crisis may lead to a total complication of the economic situation. Due to the fact that Iran’s banking sector is forced to work practically in isolation, so that financial flows are not stopped by the United States or the European Union, the Iranian authorities, headed by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, simply cannot fully meet their social obligations. This leads to the fact that in Iranian society there is growing discontent with the policies of the current authorities, which frankly plays into the hands of the West. Even those who yesterday declared their indispensable support for the policies of the current Iranian president are increasingly criticizing his inability to actively resist the West. But the West, as you know, can skillfully use even a small, but certainly a powerful handful of disgruntled Iranian authorities in order to announce the need to launch an invasion in order to defend democratic principles ...

Apparently, seeking the last reserves for non-military confrontation with the West, Iran is taking such a step as announcing its readiness to arrange an environmental catastrophe in the Strait of Hormuz, unless the EU and the US stop strangling Tehran with endless sanctions. In particular, the possibility of smashing one of the oil tankers on the rocks of the Strait of Hormuz was announced by the Commander of the IRGC (Islamic Revolution Guards Corps) Mohammad Ali Jafari. After the tanker loaded with oil will be directed to the rocks, all the oil can cover the waters of the strait and block the way for the ships that go through the strait. Such a move, according to Jafari, will be aimed primarily at the Gulf States, supplying crude oil to the United States and Europe by tankers, while supporting sanctions against Iran. A peculiar demarche in the style of "so do not you get to anyone" ...

Obviously, when the Iranians declared that they were ready to block the Strait of Hormuz, the same Americans believed that we were talking about using the Iranian fleet, which Washington promised to cope quickly enough. But if it is really about filling the water area of ​​the Gulf of Hormuz, then the strategy and tactics of possible military operations against Iran will have to be changed. Not only will tankers with vital fuel for Europe and the United States not be able to pass through the Strait of Hormuz, but American aircraft carriers that obviously did not perform “democratic” operations, cruising not over water but over huge oil spots, will have to tight ...

The environmental catastrophe that Iran can arrange at sea may well become a real dead end for the US and NATO naval units, which have recently been relied upon in the event of a possible launch of an operation to “force Iran to close its nuclear program.” In such a situation, the same Americans will literally have to carry every Iranian tanker, which the Iranians themselves can at any moment sink to the bottom in order to realize the “Dirty Water” plan.

If the oil is deliberately spilled, then even the very fact of a possible military attack on Iran will soon become doubtful. After all, the West will obviously not attack Iran at a time when oil tankers from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar cannot reach the coast of the United States and Europe. It is necessary first to carry out the cleaning, so that their countries are not left without fuel, and this in itself can be considered humiliation for the West.

In general, it can be stated that Iran is still responding as best it can, and it must be recognized that a possible Iranian response is clearly capable of spoiling the blood of supporters of a speedy strike on the Islamic Republic.

          Military expert Alexey Vashchenko noted:

          - The Iranian army is quite combat-ready, and, most importantly, fanatically devoted to its leadership, and there is also a “Corps of Guardians of the Islamic Revolution." The Iranians have shown what they are capable of, fighting now in Syria. They help Bashar al-Assad, knocking out fighters from Aleppo, Homs and the suburbs of Damascus. Iranian special forces are fighting well there.

          Then: the Persian Gulf, where the Americans are going to put the ships, is very narrow and just falls under the "dagger" fire of Iran. Most importantly, they have enough power, and these carrier groups are quite vulnerable.

          A system has been created in Iran that allows attacking other countries, the same Qatar, and the same Kuwait, where American bases are located. In addition, the Iranians created a network throughout Europe and the United States that if they suddenly attack, this network will simply begin to blow up all of Europe and the United States. And the Americans are well aware of this. Iran turned out to be a tough nut.

          PS: Iran has created a new sea-based cruise missile "Kadir", and in the near future it will be presented to the public. This was announced by Deputy Minister of Defense of the country Brigadier General Mehdi Farahi, reports "Interfax".
          Farahi noted:
          - Our missiles Zafar, Nasr, Nur, Kader and the new cruise missile Kadir can be launched from ships at speeds above 30 knots. fellow

        Onboard or bottom Kingston can be filled with oil if you are walking through an oil storage. A terrible oil slick turning into an oil film and covering vast areas of a water mirror. This is an environmental disaster. 1g oil covers the area with a film of up to 10 square meters. meters. The capacity of Iranian tankers is up to 100.000 tons or more. It is scary to imagine the area of ​​the water covered by this film. This is a violation of sea evaporation and air cooling, a climatic collapse for this region. The death of birds, plankton, marine mammals. High temperatures in this area will cause the evaporation of petroleum products, which is not safe for all living things and ICE as well. Coast pollution. And do not throw the tanker onto the rocks (it is not possible to damage the length of all tanks on the double sides and double bottom), but to open the neck of the tanks for oil to escape and flood the tanker is a disaster. This cannot be allowed. Think international gendarmes of western democracy.

      Firstly, oil is burning, and secondly, which tanker will go even on non-burning oil, if you set it on fire, it’s quick, and thirdly, all the countries of the Persian Gulf receive water from desalination plants on the coast of the Persian Gulf. In 1973 After the Arab oil embargo, queues in Europe and the United States for gas stations reached many kilometers. Production fell. In Canada, engineers stood along the roads with signs "working for food." So this is not just a duck for the Western layman.

    who are doing their best to force Iran to stop nuclear research,

    Come on? And where is it written?
    Iran is demanded not to enrich uranium to the military level (sanctions on the Bushehr nuclear power plant do not stutter at all) and to make its nuclear "research" transparent (which, of course, are exclusively peaceful - therefore, enrichment takes place in deeply hidden bunkers).

    But if we are really talking about filling the water area of ​​the Gulf of Hormuz, then the strategy and tactics of possible military operations against Iran will have to be changed. Not only will tankers with vital fuel for Europe and the United States not be able to pass through the Strait of Hormuz, but American aircraft carriers that obviously did not perform “democratic” operations, cruising not over water but over huge oil spills, will have to tight ...

    Well, they will flood the gulf or the strait with oil. And the aircraft carrier will not pass because he is afraid to get dirty?

                  usually countries seeking nuclear weapons take a different path - RNOP construction - weapons-grade plutonium production reactors. These are, as a rule, uranium-graphite heavy water reactors, quite simple in design, and using natural uranium as fuel. Irradiated fuel is then reprocessed, and from it plutonium is extracted toWhich goes to further enrichment. The DPRK went along this path, which, with the help of its reactor in Yongbyon, produced a filling for its products. Iran, having its uranium and its specialists, if it wanted to, could have long been able to build operational reactors (since their design has long been described in open sources), obtain weapons-grade plutonium, and create its own nuclear weapons. Having a stock of uranium purchased back in South Africa, he would have been able to process it at RNOPs for plutonium for a long time, create and test a nuclear explosive device, since this technology is not so complicated and has long been available in open sources.
                  According to experts, Iran cannot produce weapons-grade uranium in its centrifuges. INfirstly, the centrifuge designs themselves do not allow enrichment of up to 90% according to U-235. Secondly, Iranian uranium is heavily contaminated with impurities, in particular, molybdenum. It is possible to produce reactor fuel from it, but weapons-grade uranium cannot be obtained without preliminary purification from impurities. Iran does not have such technologies. These are facts available from open sources.
                  The secret services of the "IAEA countries" have long ago noted that they often use falsified facts, just to blame the countries they dislike. The example of exposing fakes in relation to Iraq is very indicative. Or the accusation of Kazakhstan in the secret supply of 1300 tons
                  "refined uranium ore" to Iran. it turned out to be the same duck or accusations of Russia in the supply of equipment for the production of weapons-grade plutonium from the same series ..

          Iran now, according to experts, is the order of a ton of LEU that is produced by centrifuges in the Natanza Center. About 20 kg of HEU (fissile material) needed to create the notorious bomb can be produced from this amount. The IAEA notes that it will take at least several months to turn low-enriched into highly enriched uranium, the necessary creation of a bomb. As there is no such equipment in Natanz, Iran will either have to upgrade its existing facilities or transfer low enriched uranium to where such equipment is. According to the international community, there are no such enterprises in Iran..
          Moreover, 20 kg is about one YBG. The presence of this only speaks of a question of a certain prestige and not of a real threat to anyone.
          There is a wise saying concerning both Israel and Iran

    *** If the oil is purposefully spilled, then even the fact of a possible military attack on Iran in the near future will become doubtful *** - This is IMPOSSIBLE !!
    If you remember in the article in the news it was written that they were waiting for the statements of Khamenei as a spiritual leader!
    But he is not able to give such a fatwa!
    According to Islam, harming the environment and in general to everything that God created is NOT possible !!

                  You are not a little about that, I already saw this in the news ...................... To prevent an environmental disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, the US Coast Guard set fire to part of a huge oil spots that formed last week as a result of the explosion of an oil platform.
                  Meanwhile, the volume of oil leakage from the wells of the Deepwater Horizon platform increased fivefold. Now, from a subsea well located at a depth of 1525 meters off the coast of Louisiana, about 190 tons of oil are poured daily. The diameter of the oil slick is almost a thousand kilometers, and its area is about 75 thousand square meters. km

                  Two specialized vessels drove oil from the places of its greatest accumulation into a 150-meter perimeter, fenced with refractory booms. Then they towed it to an 8-kilometer "burning zone" 50 kilometers south of the Louisiana coast. The oil was set on fire using mini-rafts with open sources of fire located on them.

And if the tanker is smashed to the shore in the Persian Gulf, then oil will spread exactly with a thin layer and it will not work to set fire to it. In the Black Sea, we could not (there was no special vessel to collect oil in a spot with a radius of tens of meters). wink

Something when Hezbollah and Hamas rockets missiles at Israeli schools PURPOSE, something when Arabs set fire to forests in Israel (purposefully knowing that every tree was planted by the hands of Jews and fertilized them afterwards, this is a way to cause heartache, despite the fact that this forest surrounds their own village and enriches the air that they breathe with oxygen), so this Islamist does not remember such commandments. Come on, you are an IDEALIST. And do not confuse hot with heavy. Islam does not add morality and does not diminish. YOU have very high moral qualities and developed respect for others, and therefore you are such a nice and pleasant Muslim. And not vice versa. The bastard will remain scum, and neither the Quran, nor the Bible, nor the torus will correct him. Yes, and the Quran, agree the controversial book. He who seeks hatred and a call to war will find them there. He who seeks peace, respect for others and himself, self-development and piety - he will find all of the above. However, as in the torus.

Once his companions come to the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and complain about one of the Muslims that he performs prayer and praying in the mosque and constantly steals, deceives that it is necessary to drive him away!

            The Wahhabis supported the catastrophes and the only person who gave fatwas about the possibility of such a thing is the blind Sheikh Yasin, justifying this with the fact that Israel has missiles, but there are no Palestinians!
            All scholars of Islam refuted this and did not support the fatwa !!
            The fact is that in addition to the sin of suicide, where does the killer have confidence that among the blown up there is no sympathy for their struggle? That children, women will not suffer, how will he answer before the Almighty ??

              Alibek, I often read your comments with great interest. You, really, are a very rare example of a balanced and reasonable person. It is unlikely that you can convince me in this matter. Alas, too many people apparently simply were not ready for the true and high morality of Islam, following the bad path. I have seen so many negative examples that it is difficult for me to drop this experience overnight. Unfortunately, for many too, the Qur'an, instead of medicine, turned out to be poison. I was born and lived until 13 years old in Yaroslavl, but we had a kind of courtyard. In our company of comrade guys there was only one Russian, I am a Jew, and all other Azerbaijanis. I think you understand the value of friendship inherent in childhood. Of my close friends, only one friend of mine, Ilgar, ONE from the whole company continued to be friends with me, not taking into account either my nationality or the fact that later I served in the IDF. Others attacked Islam, and immediately picked up anti-Semitism worse than Goebbels.

    Humanity has few natural disasters. If countries begin to develop and adopt the creation of artificial disasters, then without any atomic weapons can be arranged on the earth armageddon! So, through the efforts of wise, mostly Western politicians, mankind was on the verge of using a new type of weapon, creating a gigantic environmental disaster (tanker oil can be spilled not only in the Strait of Hormuz), the consequences of which are difficult to assess.

    Explicitly provoke Iran, wait for it to snap back, so as to attack the alleged aggressor.

    The site lacks an IRGC commander, Jafari. He would find out a lot of useful things about how best to spill oil. smile

      Solidarity with "baltika-18". We need to publish this correspondence. Iranians could pick up a few new war plans and blueprints for an atomic bomb, Jews could read about peace-loving Islamists who simply cannot be killed and blown up.
      I’ll go and eat something until they set fire to the Persian Gulf and until the Muslims kissed Jews and Christians to death .....

    Ecological disaster that Iran could arrange on the sea
    Iran will not dare, it will not be legal from the point of view of international law, it will lead even more to condemnation of the world community)

        There is one phrase "Quod licet Iovi, non licet bovi." - "What is allowed to Jupiter is not allowed to the bull." I want to warn you right away that I am neutral to Iran and do not harbor hatred, but you yourself see that with its friction, bluff and threats, Iran has led itself into a corner, Iran had a drain of opportunities for cooperation with the West, the United States, which the Arab countries do not have, because Iran has a state religion more even closer to Christianity than Arab Sunnism. Iran has opposed itself to the entire world community, both the West and the East, not counting Russia and Syria, of course, which will have a bad effect on the Ayatollah regime. But in the world, confrontation is always counterproductive for the economy of the country, its population. If Iran inflicts an ecological catastrophe, then it will cross the line of what is permissible, which no one will treat with understanding either the Arabs or the West, i.e. it will be suicide for Iran, and no one will express condolences to her passing.)

          Why not? I will condole. And there are still a lot of sane people who see and know that the United States and the West cooperate only through "lowering" their partners, as was the case with Egypt, Libya, Panama, and many more countries.

          I do not agree, as we see in the West (USA) on Iran’s account, very elaborate plans, which shows that they were not born as spontaneous countermeasures to Iran’s obstinate behavior.

    Well, as expected, the information turned out to be * duck *


    A senior Iranian official called the Der Spiegel report false that Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps is preparing an environmental disaster in the Persian Gulf, Reuters reported October 17.

    Mohammed-Reza Naqdi, the head of the Basij paramilitaries, said the assumption was completely unfounded. He noted that water pollution in the Persian Gulf will cause considerable damage to Iran, so the accusations of preparing a plan for an oil spill in the Strait of Hormuz are groundless.

    Recall, on October 14, Der Spiegel reported that a plan called "Dirty Water" was developed by order of the commander of the IRGC, General Mohammed Ali Jafari and the commander of the IRGC Navy, Admiral Ali Fadawi, and submitted for approval to the Supreme Leader of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
