    Iran is in tough shape.. Their currency lost 30% of its value, they can't sell their oil and Chin pulled out of the South Pars oil and gas project.

    Its likely a true story.

    Media hype. Iran has always been in tough shape in one way or another.

    Well, they need $117 a barrel to make their ends meet. They have had gas rationing since 2007..

    Half their tanker fleet is parked at Kharg being used to store crude.

    China has cut back their purchasing to 250,000 bpd.. and are paying deeply discounted price per barrel.

    Its not media hype.

    Not exactly true.. this US estimates, estimates made by biased and partisan sources. The ones that are pushing oil prices up are not the Iranians, but in fact the US and its allies by fear mongering constantly. This of course benefits also US allies, like the Saudi's who also need a high oil price to sustain themselves.

    They have had gas rationing since 2007..
    Thats because they dont have refining capacity and a growing economy.

    Half their tanker fleet is parked at Kharg being used to store crude.
    Yes, now it is because of sanctions and waiting for better prices... Goldman Sachs does it also.

    China has cut back their purchasing to 250,000 bpd.. and are paying deeply discounted price per barrel.
    again sanctions.. and a bit of political pressure.

    Its not media hype.
    Most of it is, and the speculators in Asia and West use it to earn billions of profits.

    Saudis need about 85$ a barrel.. that's why they keep trying to push the price down ... to further hurt Iran.

    The tankers have been parked at Kharg since March.. They can't sell their oil.. and they can't ramp down production substantially without destroying the reserves. They can't get parts and equipment.

    I have been following the facts on Iran's economy for four or five years.

    What Z spin?

    Iran's in trouble.. the Iranian Rial lost 30% of its value two weeks ago.

    Name the nations which arent in trouble

    Have you seen the US debt level lately?

    Keep printing money

    Why do you focus on Iran? Seems like you have taken the propaganda bait hook line and sinker

    You werent one of those Americans who thougt Saddam Hussein was involved with the 9/11 attacks and that he had WMDs were you?
