EU states have already agreed on the general outlines of Iran's oil embargo as the latest in a series of measures taken by the Western states to increase pressure on Tehran over its nuclear program. However, EU members have failed to reach a final agreement on details such as the exact timing of the sanctions.
The prominent financial expert added that with regard to the ailing economies of some European states “… it [sanction] is going to be difficult to implement and …it's going to be difficult to gather the support to make it effective.”
Although weeks have passed since the US vacated its troops from Iraq, it still has advanced presence in the area through its embassy in Baghdad, where thousands of armed military contractors are still being employed.
Also late last year, the US equipped neighboring United Emirates with advanced weaponry aimed at disrupting underground nuclear activities.

What if US Senators and heads of national security agencies were found to have sworn oaths of loyalty to Iran or China?
The bill Obama signed into law on December 31st called the Indefinite Detention Bill, now called the National Defense Act of 2012, which suspends habeas corpus protection of US civilian citizens in their own country at the behest of that bastard child of false flag 911 - Homeland Security - was authored and presented by Michigan Senator Carl Levin. Senator Levin holds dual citizenship as an Israeli.
"What's wrong with that? Israel is our Ally", most Americans would say. I used to believe that. But the history of US/Israeli relations relative to Israeli relations with other nations tells another story.
Israeli foreign policy has a history of covert operations directly counter to the national interests and domestic welfare of the United States dating back to 1961.
This is conflict of interest. Conflict of interest occurs when an individual or organization in a position of public trust is involved in multiple interests, one of which could possibly corrupt the motivation for an act in the other. Questioning dual citizenship of elected officials is in no way antisemitism. The issue it conflict of interest pure and simple.
Iran War: Next on Washington's agenda ~ link ~ Former US Assistant Secretary of the Treasury has said that a military strike against Iran is the next war on the US government's agenda politics. Paul Craig Roberts wrote in an article that the United States is preparing to attack Iran as it has deployed missiles directed at Iran in Oman and the UAE, Infowars.com reported. He also brought several other instances to prove his assumption. "Washington has beefed up Saudi Arabia's jet fighter force. Most recently, Washington has deployed 9,000 US troops to Israel to participate in "war games" designed to test the US/Israeli air defense system," Roberts said. "As Iran represents no threat unless attacked, Washington's war preparations signal Washington's intention to attack Iran," he added.
The author noted that another signal that the US administration has a new war on its agenda is the raised level of "Washington's rhetoric and demonization of Iran."
Pentagon fumes: Iran patrols Hormuz - with video ~ link ~ It is never wise to bit a tiger on the ass! Iran might want to consider that! Stirling
According to the Pentagon officials, the incident took place twice last week, though the interactions were not seen as hostile. The video released by the Pentagon shows armed boats belonging to the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps navy approaching within several hundred yards (meters) of the USS New Orleans, an amphibious transport ship, on January 6, 2012.
According to US military sources, a similar incident occurred with the US Coast Guard cutter Adak the same day, with the Iranian boats seen riding in its wake with guns visible.

Iran: We have proof US behind assassination ~ link ~ The latest assassination, like so much that has happened in Iran and Syria lately, is not just to degrade Iranian/Syrian infrastructure/power/moral, but is designed to bait Iran and Syria to engage in a response. If they don't take the bait, there could always be a False Flag "response" that could be used to either trigger war or move things closer to war. Stirling
What's causing all the record dry weather and mild winter temperatures in America ~ link ~ Going on two years ago, following the BP Oil Disaster and the Obama Administration approved use of massive amounts of dispersants to sink hundreds of millions of gallons of crude oil in the Gulf of Mexico, the Loop Current ceased to exist. It is a college level physics experiment to use a large clear tub of cool water and to inject a warm stream of colored water to study current flow/etc. When, during these same experiments, a very small amount of oil is added, it breaks down the boundary layers and disrupts the warm water stream. This is what killed and continues to kill the Loop Current in the Gulf of Mexico. The Loop Current has always been a key part of the Thermohaline Circulation System of the Atlantic Ocean. This is a heat transfer system. Taking the warm water from the Gulf out of this System has weakened the Gulf Stream (also a part of the Thermohaline Circulation System). Now the Gulf Stream, a warm river of water in the cold North Atlantic, has an effect on the stratospheric Jet Stream...it normally acts as a steering mechanism on the Jet Stream (which is a fast moving 'river' of air, which effects the Northern Hemisphere directly and the entire planet indirectly). Since the BP Oil Disaster, which was NOT an accident (Goldman Sachs and BP insiders sold off massive amounts of BP stock shortly before the Disaster; BP drilled where it was known to be totally unsafe to drill since the 1950s when a giant salt dome was found at the site), the globe has experience many strange weather patterns. These are mostly a result from the BP Oil Disaster. Dr. Bill Deagle and myself were two of the people that broke this story over a year and a half ago. The mainstream news media will never make the connection. Stirling
