    The Iran State TV has just reported that Iran has cut oil export to six EU countries in retaliations of sanctions. Iran argues that the EU oil embargo will not cripple its economy, claiming that the country already has identified new customers. European sales account for about 18 percent of Iran's total crude exports.

    Update 1:
    The six EU countries are Italy, Spain, France, Greece, Portugal, and the Netherlands. Ambassadors of these countries were called to the Iranian Foreign Ministry and the decision was conveyed to them.

    Update 2:
    Iran State TV showing live pictures of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad unveiling the country's latest nuclear achievements. This means Iran has placed the first domestically-made fuel rods into the heart of Tehran Research Reactor According to the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, the fuel rods were produced at Isfahan nuclear facility and transferred to the Tehran Research Reactor under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors. By placing nuclear plates into the Tehran reactor, Iran has taken the final step in completing the nuclear fuel cycle.

    Update 3:
    Sky news reporting from Nairobi says that it has sources saying that Iran and Al Qaeda have established an "operational relationship" Source: Sky News

    Hapo kwenye red hilo ni wazi kabisa. Now, Israel inatumika kuichokoza Iran ili ikikurupuka kujibu mapigo, immediately wazungu watapata sababu ya kuivamia kijeshi. For the time being, hakuna uhalali wa kisheria au kimazingira wa kuivamia Iran, kwa hiyo Israel imetumwa kuichokoza Iran makusudi for a special purpose.

    Maumivu ya kichwa huanza pole pole...suala hili litawanufaisha walanguzi kama ilivyokuwa enzi za Saddam. Yule mtoto wa Koffi Anan alitengeneza ankra za haja tu kwenye smuggling ya mafuta from Iraq.

    Iranian are proud people with rich history and civilisation. They are not puppet to anybody and their leaders are humble and down to earth. Western countries problem is not nuclear, the nuclear issue started only last 10 years ago but before that Iran was bad in eyes of West. What irk Western Govt is Iran is no body puppet and play on its own rule and control its wealth.

    US is banckrupt and negotiating with Teleban to surrender and exit in dignified way. Europe are on their knees with economic problem.
    Now they just look somewhere to steal

    Longtime American ally South Korea, which in 2011 bought about 250,000 barrels per day of Iranian oil -- 10 percent of its total oil imports-has been a big target for the American effort, recently hosting two visits by senior U.S. officials who came to try to persuade it to cut back or Iranian oil purchases. So far at least, the results have not been not encouraging. The Foreign Ministry in Seoul says that no decision has yet been made on the U.S. request, apparently out of fear that the country would be hard pressed to find alternative suppliers to fill in the gap left by Iranian crude.

    The picture in Japan is similar. On Friday, Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda said "the trend is we'll cut oil imports from Iran" amid continuing efforts to secure alternative supplies from other Middle Eastern countries. However, Japanese authorities also pressed the U.S. to permit them exemptions from President Barack Obama's Feb. 6 executive order, which imposes sanctions on foreign institutions involved in helping finance Iranian oil sales.

    As a close Iranian ally, China has also dug its heels in-in fact, far deeper than either South Korea or Japan. Beijing turned a blind eye to efforts by American Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner to get it to cut back on Iranian imports during a January visit and earlier this month the Communist Party newspaper People's Daily described Western efforts to pressure Iran with an oil embargo as "casting a shadow over the global economy."

    China is a massive purchaser of Iranian oil, averaging about 550,000 barrels per day in 2011, about 10 percent of its total imports. While purchases have declined over the past several weeks, oil analyst Mark Pervan of ANZ Bank in Melbourne attributes that to Chinese efforts to pressure Tehran to reduce prices in the face of the U.S. pressure. Shum said that Chinese purchases of Iranian oil could increase substantially in coming months, particularly if Iran offers Beijing a discount on its oil sales.

    sio busara kushangilia vita. Tuwahurumie wairani wanaoadhibiwa kwa mali zao wenyewe. Hivi hapa duniani kuna nchi ambayo Mungu ameipa mamlaka ya kumiiliki zana za kivita peke yake na kupanga anachokitaka huku akiwapa utawala awatakao na kuwanyima awatakao. Hatafu wanapora mali za nchi hizo kwa kiwango wanachojipangia wenyewe. Nchi za magharibi ni wezi wa maliasili za dunia. Hatutakiwi kuwaonea haya.

    What i see is 'sky is falling'
    katika historia ya dunia, hii itakuwa vita mbaya sana.
    USA and europe wataachwa katika hali mbaya sana. Africa ndo usiseme, tutakuwa na 'utapia mlo' wa kila kitu.
    Hakuna anayejua exactly how long will take to re open 'strait of hamouz' kama ikichukua hata 2 months tu, dunia itakuwa ime run out of oil stock, then what? Dunia itasimama for sure.
    Kwa hiyo ili swala si la kushabikia sanaaa...
    We have to know Iranan deserve the internal control of their contry, kitu ambacho sisi wa tz tumeshindwa, ccm pamoja na 'majambazi' wengine wanakwapua kila kitu, sisi tumebaki tunawakenulia meno kwa kuwachekea, inatupasa tufanye mapinduzi kama waliyofanya iran, so that we can get out of these 'strings'.
