    Iran Oil Ministry: Exports cut to Britain, France
    By ALI AKBAR DAREINI, AP
    20 minutes ago


    TEHRAN, Iran — Iran has halted oil shipments to Britain and France, the Oil Ministry said Sunday, in an apparent pre-emptive blow against the European Union after the bloc imposed sanctions on Iran's crucial fuel exports.

    The EU imposed tough sanctions against Iran last month, which included a freeze of the country's central bank assets and an oil embargo set to begin in July. Iran's Oil Minister Rostam Qassemi had warned earlier this month that Tehran could cut off oil exports to "hostile" European nations. The 27-nation EU accounts for about 18 percent of Iran's oil exports.

    "Crude oil exports to British and French companies have been halted," Oil Ministry spokesman Ali Reza Nikzad-Rahbar said on the ministry's shana.ir website. "We have our own customers and have no problem to sell and export our crude oil to new customers."

    Britain's Foreign Office declined comment, and there was no immediate response from French officials.

    The semiofficial Mehr news agency said crude exports were halted Sunday to the two countries. It also said the National Iranian Oil Company has sent letters to some European refineries with an ultimatum to either sign long-term contracts of two to five years or be cut off.

    Mehr did not specify which countries were sent the ultimatum, but Spain, Italy and Greece are among Europe's biggest buyers of Iranian oil.

    Iran's targeting of Britain and France appeared to be a political decision to punish the two countries for supporting tougher sanctions against Iran over its disputed nuclear program.

    Yes, and that paper tiger Iran, is still scaring people.
    Terrorist attacks by single or multiple people, yes, massive armed invasion, very seriously doubt it.

    Just picked this one up,

    DEBKAfile, Political Analysis, Espionage, Terrorism, Security

    I think IRAN will rely upon their Allies for massive armmed invasion over here on this side. They are going to be BUSY with ISRAEL.

    Israel is placing anti-missal battery's over the state. This is what you would expect to see before they strike Iran. Things are moving foreword despite the would telling them not to strike. Israel is facing annihilation if they don't act.
