US "deployed" Iranian oil tankers that went to Venezuela

The United States stopped on Wednesday the planned deliveries of Iranian oil to Venezuela, threatening ship operators with sanctions. This was reported by the American television channel Fox News.

Two Greek ships sailing under the flag of Liberia to Venezuela with fuel from Iran fell back on course after the United States threatened them with sanctions

- noted the official representative of the State Department.

The Wall Street Journal said the vessels were supposed to bring the last of the five shipments of oil ordered to Venezuela. In Caracas, they said that fuel delivery is part of a partnership to counter US sanctions. In a televised address to the nation, the head of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, emphasized:

We, Iran and Venezuela are two peoples of rebels and revolutionaries who will never kneel before the imperialism of North America.

Iranian authorities contacted Liberia, on which the ships are registered, in order to warn her of possible US sanctions. The Government of Liberia immediately revoked the accreditation of ships.

According to experts, oil from Iran could only meet the needs of Venezuela for a couple of weeks. The US State Department, in turn, believes that the supply of Iranian fuel will not be able to prevent the inevitable - the democratization of Venezuela, leading to the country's future prosperity.

    One way or another, the owners of the ships received sanctions and now they will have to rush around, trying to register the boats in another country, where there are fewer taxes, and then there may be a bummer ...

    "Democratization and prosperity," and when American corporations ruled the country, why was there no prosperity? Why are only the United States and Canada thriving in the Americas? Why didn't they help their neighbors, but helped Europe and South Korea with Japan?

        And in terms of industriousness, Mexico is in first place, Brazil is also in the top ten (Russia, by the way, is also).

          I am not aware of the rating of industriousness, but I have been to all of the listed countries and, based on my own observations, I can say for sure that neither Mexico, nor Russia, nor Brazil work the same way as in the USA and Canada. There is even a saying in Brazil - "A Brazilian is born tired." All Latin America is a bunch of lazy and crooked clumsy, I'm not talking about Russia - you yourself know ...

            But the fact that Mexico and Brazil in the top ten leading economies of the world, of course, do not bother you?

              In terms of GDP per capita (2019), Mexico is at 66th place ($ 9807), and Brazil at 73 ($ 8968), so the economic achievements of these countries are not very outstanding.

    Why oil producing Venezuela Iranian oil? It seems that the author didn’t eat something.

      That's for sure. There is not oil, which in Venezuela is higher than the roof, but gasoline. They do not have their own refineries.

          The Americans decide who to suffer without a refinery.

          I do not know. Nobody writes anything about the UAE. And Venezuela usually delivered gas to the Americans. What do you think, and continue now?

    ... the democratization of Venezuela leading to the country's future prosperity.

    The Americans have already democratized Iraq and Libya. They themselves do not want to develop Libyan democracy at home?
    And it’s time for Russia to launch ships under its own flag. Or is it scary that the Americans will impose sanctions? But they already impose sanctions against Russia.

    Chevron and Halliburton are still working in Venezuela. US companies are allowed to work in the oil and gas sector of Venezuela. Sanctions do not apply to them.

    Another stuffing. Venezuela doesn't need oil and nafig. She's got this oil at least. She needs gasoline. Because a key refinery stands still due to US sanctions. It is corny that there is no way to repair equipment. And it is all "made in USE". And all the gasoline floats on Iran's OWN tankers. And the equipment is in the same place.

    - Venezuelan "oil tar" must be diluted with high-fraction oil (excellent Iranian oil is suitable for this) ... - only then Venezuelan hydrocarbons are suitable for deep processing ...

      To go nuts, of course. Just clean tar, and therefore tankers with Iranian oil fly to help Venezuela.

    The author is completely unaware that the Register of Liberia is not located in the African country of the same name and the capital of Monrovia, but in the USA, Virginia, the city of Dulles. With the same success, you can call from Iran ..., for example, to the moon. Do not write nonsense if you have no idea about the subject of writing.

    You are discussing some garbage!
    Look at the satellite, how full tankers stand, nobody accepts them. Where does Iran begin to pour there? He is under sanctions. Very well. Already condemned Russia for non-delivery. We seemed to comply, but had no rights.

    See the ship chart. Tankers are standing, there are not many of them. What are you carrying? Oil must be extracted and then transported. Both countries are under sanctions, that Iran, that Venezuela. But we have an opinion, they have already built, how they will be punished, and who will deliver it ....
