I remember just a short while ago when #Iran regime apologists/lobbyists were jumping up & down claiming Tehran was exporting large amounts of oil to China.

Knowing their nature, I had a strong feeling they were lying.

Here’s the proof.
bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
2)
“Two and a half months after the White House banned the purchase of Iran’s oil, the nation’s crude is continuing to be sent to China where it’s being put into what’s known as ‘bonded storage,’… This oil doesn’t cross local customs or show up in the nation’s import data…”
3)
“The store of oil has the potential to push down global prices if Chinese refiners decide to draw on it…”

This actually shows how desperate Iran’s mullahs have become. Willing to store oil, hoping to maybe one day sell them at even lower prices.

Trump’s in a box on #Iran. He clearly had no conception or understanding of where “maximum pressure” absent a realistic objective was likely to lead. He acted alone which makes it harder to bring allies with us. The tit-for-tat cycle we now see was predictable.
This is consequence of a total lack of process or rigorous inquiry before setting policy and contemplating contingency and risk. It weakens our country and places an impossible burden on our people holding military and diplomatic lines overseas.
We have been in urgent need of a broad international coalition to protect navigation and deter Iran’s reckless acts in the Gulf. But that takes American credibility, trust, leadership, and allies—all of which the WH serves to undermine month-after-month.

UK flagged oil/chemical tanker STENA IMPERO doing something interesting at the moment. It's port is the opposite way of where it's heading, and it's heading directly for the #Iran|ian island of Qeshm.. 🤔
The track of this ship is incredibly concerning, if it continues on it's track towards Iran, which it's only 9.5 nautical miles from..
Here's an image by Relic in Crustacean Nation - this track is the rather concerning part.

"US forces not involved in the strike against pro-Iranian base."

My take:
Israel and/or GCC countries (from somewhere in Kurdish-controlled areas of Syria).

@LindseyGrahamSC @realDonaldTrump @IlhanMN #Israel is a theocratic apartheid military police state.

People are segregated and one segment of people are reduced to living in dire conditions, suffer human rights abuses and abject poverty. They are beaten back by the military when trying to assert their freedom.
@LindseyGrahamSC @realDonaldTrump @IlhanMN Why we would support ANY theocracy I have no idea, but we also support #SaudiArabia, a theocratic monarchy.

It doesn't make sense, if we support theocracies, why isn't #Iran our ally? Did we have to pick a side and decide to go with Sunnis instead of Shiites?
@LindseyGrahamSC @realDonaldTrump @IlhanMN If the United States separates Church and State according to our constitution, and is devoted to promoting democracy worldwide, we should not be ignoring our values in order to create alliances. If they want to be allies, these countries can change

#Breaking 1 drone partout entre #Iran et #EtatsUnis. #Trump vient d'annoncer la frappe par l'USS Boxer après sommation. Ou comment refermer la porte dans l'immédiat à toute négociation ou- au moins- baisse de tension. 👇
2) Le drone iranien abattu intervient alors que le ministre des Affaires étrangères Zarif, figure de proue des modérés du régime et promoteur de l'accord nucléaire de 2015, vient de proposer 1 1er deal concret- quoiqu'inacceptable- aux #EtatsUnis de #Trump theguardian.com/world/2019/jul…
3) Mais ce drone iranien abattu sonne comme 1 fin de non-recevoir par l'administration #Trump au modéré Zarif, en voyage diplomatique cette semaine à l'ONU à New York, alors qu'il est déjà en difficulté à l'intérieur face aux Gardiens de la Révolution depuis sa démission rejetée.
