the one the US supported with arms and intelligence?
Seems like fascism is alive and well in the USA
The primary slaughterer of civilians in the worlds since WW2
You should be all very proud of your crimes against humanity record - I am sure
DOGH!... the sanctions started around that time.. come on..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.
As for parts and equipment.. again.. sanctions, plus in reality they can get them from 3rd parties at a price.
Also the sanctions have had an undeniable impact on Iran's ability to export. It has led to a direct sky-rocketing of their maritime insurance rates, the withdrawal of Chinese and Korean crude contracts which have fallen by double digit percentages, the increase in hard currency trading (Iran has been trading bunker fuel for gold in many of its remaining Indian deals) due to the inability to work with financial institutions to transfer payments in rials or gain new credit, and of course in the longer term the steady deterioration of their terminals, fields, and other facilities.
