China breaches US oil export sanctions against Iran

The Chinese oil tanker Pacific Bravo loaded some 2 million barrels of Iranian oil from the Soroosh and Kharg terminals over the past few days, the first violation of US sanctions since Washington cancelled all exemptions. Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif is inBeijing for talks with Chinese leaders. The purchase of Iranian oil in the absence of a waiver exposes the companies involved in the transaction—including the tanker operator, refinery customer, and bank—to possible boycott by the US financial system. Pacific Bravo was purchased by the Chinese Bank of Kunlun, long the financial institution at heart of China-Iran bilateral trade.

      Chinese are at least 4000 old nation , and do not need Americans or Jews to tell them what to do ;
      By the way Persians are as old . So maybe are the Hebrews , but not the Jews. The difference is known , some of those Hebrews are present days Arabs and Muslims ; USA teaching whom the probable highest civilization and culture what to do ? Americans should cool it down , since its end might be coming.

      That is right Isaac Hager, Western culture is at least 2000 years behind Jewish culture in terms of understanding the role of humanity in and the Universe itself.

      They are coming in from a land afar off, From the end of the heavens, Jehovah and the instruments of His indignation, To destroy all the land.

      Howl ye, for near is the day of Jehovah, As destruction from the Mighty it cometh.

      Therefore, all hands do fail, And every heart of man doth melt.

      And they have been troubled, Pains and pangs they take, As a travailing woman they are pained, A man at his friend they marvel, The appearance of flames — their faces!

      9 Lo, the day of Jehovah doth come, Fierce, with wrath, and heat of anger, To make the land become a desolation, Yea, its sinning ones He destroyeth from it.

      For the stars of the heavens, and their constellations, Cause not their light to shine, Darkened hath been the sun in its going out, And the moon causeth not its light to come forth.

      11 And I have appointed on the world evil, And on the wicked their iniquity, And have caused to cease the excellency of the proud, And the excellency of the terrible I make low.

      12 I make man more rare than fine gold, And a common man than pure gold of Ophir.

      13 Therefore the heavens I cause to tremble, And the earth doth shake from its place, In the wrath of Jehovah of Hosts, And in a day of the heat of his anger.

      And it hath been, as a roe driven away, And as a flock that hath no gatherer, Each unto his people — they turn, And each unto his land — they flee.

      Every one who is found is thrust through, And every one who is added falleth by sword.

      And their sucklings are dashed to pieces before their eyes, Spoiled are their houses, and their wives lain with.

      Lo, I am stirring up against them the Medes, Who silver esteem not, And gold — they delight not in it.

      And bows dash young men to pieces, And the fruit of the womb they pity not, On sons their eye hath no pity.

    Sad to see chinese foreign policy so much more realistic, peace oriented, and in fact righteous than the USA foreign policy. Sad to see chinese leaders more in tune with the philosophy of the US founders than the actual US administrations of probably the last 150+ years. Sad to see the alligators back trump in a corner. A pox on the us military industrial fascist complex. Bring back Ike, maybe he can put them back in their cage. I like Ike.

        You better have evidence to back up your ridiculous claim regarding Iran being the biggest terrorist supporter.
