Oil Embargo Best Response to Nuclear Boycott

I was wondering how long it would take before this kind of talk would start.


The best way to confront the US and EU3 dictatorship is to "impose an embargo on oil sales to those countries, said an English-language paper here Sunday commenting on last Thursday "unfair" resolution of the UN nuclear watchdog against Iran.

The 'Tehran Times' suggested in its editorial that the world oil-rich states should form a united front in order to confront "Western neocolonialist countries."

Criticizing the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) resolution against Iran, the paper said that it was ratified "to meet the objectives of the Zionist regime and the United States." It added that the resolution, issued under pressure from the United States and the European Union big three, actually indicated that "the status of international organizations, including the IAEA, has declined seriously in the face of the blackmail of the neocolonialist powers."


"Oil is the lifeline of the West, and most of the West's military industries are dependent on it. Therefore, it is the most potent economic weapon for settling scores with neocolonialist countries," the paper stressed.

It further noted that the Iranian nation clearly has the right to stand up to the "dictatorship of the EU3 and the U.S and the best act of resistance would be to impose an embargo on oil sales to those countries."

Stressing that Iran is a country "with great potential to respond to Western meddling," the paper said that Tehran should consult with some OPEC countries and then propose plans to confront the hegemonic actions of the West.
