U.S. Exempts Japan, 10 EU Nations From Iran Oil Sanctions

Bloomberg -- The Obama administration is sending a message to major buyers of Iranian oil -- in particular China, India and South Korea -- that they can avoid new U.S. sanctions by curtailing their imports of Iranian crude by the end of June, several U.S. officials said.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced yesterday that an “initial group” of countries -- Japan and 10 European Union nations -- have “significantly reduced” their Iranian oil purchases and thus qualified for an exemption from sanctions for a renewable period of 180 days under the law.

The U.S. didn’t grant waivers to China (CCCIIQIR), the leading importer of Iranian crude in the first half of last year, or to India and South Korea, which were the third- and fourth-largest buyers, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.

We have to do whatever we have to do to deny Iran's development of nuclear weapons.

We need to develop, non-ethanol, alternative fuels like abundant U.S. natural gas as Compressed Natural Gas (CNG). America, Canada and Mexico could make North America an energy independent area. Let OPEC and our enemies in Iran and Venezuela sell their oil elsewhere.

More exemptions by the Obama Administration, almost seems like the exemptions issue to Dem states for the Obama Care health bill. What a loser we have for President! Most corrupt administration since the Nixon years.

Sanctions work good if the stick backing them up is big enough. We sure import lots of stuff from China, India and South Korea. Maybe we should sell them oil instead.
