According to a new report by the Government Accountability Office, BP (your favorite oil giant and cancerous tumor) may have violated U.S. sanctions against selling gas to Iran. (source)
Barack Obama signed the Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability and Divestment Act in July 2010, that limits the selling of refined petroleum products to Iran in excess of $1 million.
I’m actually proud of British Petroleum for this possible infraction. Good for them. Sell gas, sell oil, sell petroleum to Iran. There is nothing wrong with Iran, and Iran should not be treated as a leper. Iran needs oil too.
Despite what your TV tells you, Iran has tried numerous times to strike a deal with the United States, and Iranian president Ahmadinejad has tried to meet with President Obama during his recent UN visit but was denied. Read the article Why Doesn’t the US Talk to Iran? here.
Iran doesn’t want to be on America’s ‘shit list’, as some say, and has tried to smooth things with the US. Iran has, it sounds, been more cooperative and willing to make amends than America.
Suffocating Iran, lowering the Iranians standard of living, not allowing Iran to update their airplanes, nor allowing them the necessities of a burgeoning nation, the US is committing a foul transgression.
America is full of hate and spite, and it shows in their actions toward their ‘enemies’, who, in reality, are pleading for peace, and do not want to be enemies of America. True, Iran is outspoken against the policies of America, but who isn’t? Iranians aren’t terrorists. Iran is a nation trying to stand on its own and be treated with respect.
