France to put unilateral ban on Iranian oil imports
24-Nov-2011 (one comment)

France will unilaterally stop importing oil from Iran, the first European country to do so, as part of an effort to isolate Tehran because of its nuclear programme.

Last year, Iran supplied 2.8 percent of French oil imports, or 1.8 million tonnes, according to data from French petroleum industry body UFIP. In the seven months to July this year, it supplied 1.6 million tonnes, around a modest 55,000 barrels per day.

This is great news indeed. I just hope other countries also to follow suit.

Of course china and probably India will not join in but this is a good start. Without petrodollars the wheels of terror will not turn for long and will come to a dead stop soon.

I just hope the west takes this seriously and deals a great blow to the inhuman and barbaric Islamic regime in Iran.

The only worrying thing is the lack of a democratic alternative to the mullah's rule. We do not want out of the frying pan and into the fire. There are so many entities just as bad as the present regime ready and willing to take over. This, the lack of an alternative, has been the biggest factor in keeping this regime in power for so long. 

Down with the ENTIRE Islamic Republic!
