Iran Urges Russia To Ditch The Dollar, Isolate America

Public Policy

Iran has suggested isolating the US by ditching the dollar during a meeting yesterday with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Tehran.

Remonstrating against US threats to impose new sanctions and cancel the nuclear agreement, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei branded the US an enemy and urged Moscow to completely sever ties with the US currency:

“By ignoring the negative propaganda of the enemies, that seek to weaken relations between countries, we can nullify US sanctions, using methods such as eliminating the dollar and replacing it with national currencies in transactions between two or more parties; thus, isolate the Americans.

As The Express reports, Putin met Iranian political leaders in an effort to nurture a warming relationship strengthened since Donald Trump recently threatened to abandon the international nuclear deal with Iran reached in 2015.

The Russian premier criticised American interference in the region and described his country’s warm relations with Tehran. Despite the sanctions, Putin said:

“We devoted our funds to scientific and technological progress, and we had significant growth in the fields of biotechnology, IT, agriculture and space industries. Now, in spite of the initial concerns, we have realised that we can do whatever we decide to.”

Khamenei wants to step up cooperation to enable peace in the Middle East, Iranian state TV reported.

During the meeting with Putin, Khameini said:

“Full resolution of Syria’s crisis needs strong cooperation between Iran and Russia. Our cooperation can isolate America. This cooperation will restore stability in the region.”

Mr Putin praised cooperation with Iran as “very productive,” adding that “we are managing to coordinate our positions on the Syrian issue.”

    Add it up and tell yourself if the title is BS. Russia and Iran have a GDP of 1.67Trillion in a global economy of 78 Trillion.

    What Shorty is basically saying here is that Iran is forced to trade in $ or else.

    Nice.

    This is how most Americans and their exceptionalist brains really tick. Total entitlement on owning everything. You just have to dig a little to find that out.

    Let’s call Shorty’s bluff.

    War with Iran means war with both China and Russia. First as a proxy with Iran equiped with the best weapons China and Russia have, but if Iran is on the losing side, expect Russia and China to step in directly.

    American weak spot, more so than Russia and China: body bags (100k+)

    And Europe has zero obligations, unless Iranians begin to storm American beaches.lol

    Really? Eyeraq is flat as a pancake and although invading the country and occupying Baghdad was indeed a piece of cake, actually keeping it and completely pacifying it, that never happened.

    Neocohn Edward “give war a chance” Luttwak…

    https://www.foreignaffairs.com/articles/1999-07-01/give-war-chance

    … later admitted that the US army never occupied Iraq, and that once they had a town conquered, somewhere else a town would fall again.

    In the end the Americans were pushed back and stuck in the Green Zone and even there they had to fear for their lives, as explosives kept being lobbed into that “safe zone” or were attacked between the GZ and the airport.

    In the end the Americans orderly fled… um retreated, called it a victory and went back to the prairie where they belong.

    Irak has now 40 million inhabitants (20 million in 1997!), Iran in contrast has 80 million and is much larger and is mostly mountainous and has a smarter population than Iraq and Afghanistan and has two mighty allies China and Russia, who won’t allow the Americans to destroy Iran, just because they won’t accept dollars anymore.

    Take my friendly advice, don’t even try, certainly not with an army that is 30% non-white. You are going to be the guinea pigs for the Russian and Chinese arms industry.

    If you can’t beat North-Vietnam, not even with the help of South Vietnam, you do not stand a chance.

    Glad to be of help.

    Yes, I know. The european pussies are too spineless to get their hands dirty. They prefer to wear pink socks and cuddle teddy bears. Better let the US do the heavy lifting and then denounce them for doing so while secretly enjoying the cheap oil.

    Smart. If only they were also smart enough to not import every 3rd world refugee generated by the US sticking their hands into another hornets nest.

    Shortend, dumb n Dutch thinks there is a grand Euro Army in the making

    Wheelbarrow Davy thinks that sneering can replace rational thinking. Besides Davy admitted earlier this week that thinking is not his cup of tea, an activity he describes as “sitting on your nuts”. And to be honest he is not very good at it, no patience.

    A few facts, in Davy’s mind no doubt “anti-American” facts:

    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/emmanuel-emmanuel-macron-eu-army-joint-defence-budget-french-president-nato-britain-brexit-russia-a7968346.html

    “Emmanuel Macron calls for EU army and shared defence budget”

    Currently the 27 countries of the EU or associated of 500 million are not integrated, other than in NATO. Macron’s idea is to created a single army from these ca. 27 national army’s, no doubt backed by Trump.

    Resources:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Military_of_the_European_Union

    Active manpower: 1.8 million.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Armed_Forces

    Active manpower: 1.3 million.

    But now for the real meat. Many European countries have conscription armies and thus giant reserves, the US doesn’t have. A few examples of countries with large amounts of soldiers who are trained:

    (source Wikipedia):

    Fit for service:

    Austria: 1.6 million
    Greece: 2.5 million
    Czech army: 2 million
    Poland: 15 million
    Romania: 4.5 million
    Bulgaria: 2.3 million
    Ukraine: 7 million
    …and so on.

    Still laughing, Wheelbarrow Dave?

    Yes, I know. The european pussies are too spineless to get their hands dirty. They prefer to wear pink socks and cuddle teddy bears.

    Hello has seen to many Hollywood movies and can’t discern between them and reality.

    You are probably talking about Germans, Americans, Swedes, Dutch and Swiss and similar PC idiots.

    I can assure you that Eastern Europeans are totally different material. Yugoslavia for instance: civil war 200k killed, nobody complaining. Americans run away at 40k deaths (Vietnam).

    Though Saddam Hussein had declared in early March 2003 that, “it is without doubt that the faithful will be victorious against aggression,” he went into hiding soon after the American invasion, speaking to his people only through an occasional audiotape. Coalition forces were able to topple his regime and capture Iraq’s major cities in just three weeks, sustaining few casualties

His understanding of history is just revisions per his intended agenda. No wonder he claimed the Korean pinensula had 10MIL men under arms.

    IRAN knows exactly who they are dealing with. It is the Americans who are stupid.

    Americans, who cannot win a battle against untrained desert nomads. (Iraq/Afghanistan/Libya/Syria)

    Who lost the Korean war and the Vietnam war and every ‘police action’ since.

    Americans, who cannot even face the future without popping pills and committing suicide in ever growing numbers.

    Who are obese from their need for pacifier foods in huge quantities.

    Who are so dumbed down, many cannot even read at a high-school level and to whom thinking is a sin.

    Cloggie, when that topic of the Koreas was being debated I too added some refs to verify that 10M number as true. The mule refused to accept them or, probably, even look at the site, as usual. He cannot accept ANY disagreement with his warped idea of the real world and ignores any proof otherwise.

    Yes, I don’t see him maturing in his lifetime. lol

    You don’t know what you’re talking about Clogmeister

    Though Saddam Hussein had declared in early March 2003 that, “it is without doubt that the faithful will be victorious against aggression,” he went into hiding soon after the American invasion, speaking to his people only through an occasional audiotape. Coalition forces were able to topple his regime and capture Iraq’s major cities in just three weeks, sustaining few casualties

    Saddam’s dictatorship was largely based on the Sunni minority of 18%. Have a look at the map of Iraq:

    https://solutionproblem.files.wordpress.com/2011/12/iraq-demographic-map.gif

    Initially the Shia of the South (green in the map) loved that the US army invaded to topple Saddam. So that explains why the US had zero trouble racing through Mesopotamia from Basra to Baghdad through Shia territory. But once the US had toppled Saddam with zero resistance from the Shia majority, the same Shia majority began to see the US invader as… well… an invader that needed to be thrown out after they had done their work as useful idiot for Shia interests.

    The Americans thought they could introduce liberal modernity like demockressie, wimmins rights, gay pride parades in down town Baghdad, holocaust education, etc.lol Nothing like that happened. The first elections resulted in tribal voting, bringing the Shia to power. Next a giant ethnic cleansing operation started with hundreds of thousands killed and which only stopped once the cleansing was over, which illustrates that multi-ethnic societies like Iraq, Syria, USSR and Yugoslavia can only be held together with a solid dictator. Remove the dictator and the country falls apart. Exactly will happen to the US, but I digress.

    In the end the Americans were driven back into the Green Zone and were not even safe there. Even the drive to the nearby airport was hazardous:

    http://www.smh.com.au/news/World/The-worlds-most-dangerous-road/2005/06/07/1118123840061.html

    In the end the Americans left. It was not as embarrassing as with Vietnam, but it came close. Essentially it was a flight.

    The initial idea was to take over Iraq and add it to the US empire under the 9/11 pretext, that CIA/Mossad inside job, that should pave the way for the invasion. What really happened was that Iraq was handed over to Iran on a silver platter for free. It was really a strategic disaster for the US, since it turned out to be the beginning of the end of US domination of the Middle East and en passant creating a “Shia Crescent”…

    https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/20/Schiitischer_Halbmond.jpg

    …enormously increasing Iranian power. In 2011 the US tried to repair the damage they had created themselves by trying to remove Syria from the Crescent and block Iranian pipeline plans from Pars, through Iran, Iraq and Syria all the way to the Mediterranean in order to service lucrative European markets. For that purpose the US conspired together with KSA, Qatar and Turkey to instigate a “civil war” (Sissyfuss and TheHoundIsLose: “it was climate change, honest”.ROFL), initiated by foreign Jihadis. It almost succeeded, but when Assad was with his back against wall, Russia intervened and helped Assad defeating the Jihadis, greatly increasing their prestige at the cost of the US.

    If the US would seriously consider attacking a much more potent adversary than Iraq, namely Iran, they are bound to lose. Iran is solid anti-American. The distance between the US base in Qatar and Tehran is very long and mountainous. The Russians and Chinese would provide the Iranians with missiles (if they don’t already have them) that would make it impossible for the US navy to operate in the Gulf, so all supplies must be airlifted. Furthermore the morale of Muslims in general is much, much higher than that of Americans, where the former are willing to engage in suicide operations.

    Forget it, it would be a disaster. The US would be thrown out of the ME altogether and the petro-dollar would be dealt a death blow, causing a US GDP decline of 35-40%, increasing tensions at home leading to cracks in the US itself.

    As Pat Buchanan, one of the last sane voices in the US, said yesterday:

    http://buchanan.org/blog/their-america-and-ours-127813

    The spirit that produced the war in the 1860s, and lasting division in the 1960s, is abroad again. A great secession of the heart is underway.

    mad kat and dumb n Dutch are finally realizing how poorly they understand military matters. There are not 10MIL men under arms in Korea. It is not even possible in the terms of an effective reality. This is fantasy numbers on some official and unofficial puke. It is purely blank numbers and are meaningless. Military men under arms means active duty ready to fight and supported with transport and logistics. You fruit cake think you can read some big numbers and they fit your emotional situation. This is my point you do not understand what military is and you do not understand military matters in history. With you loony tunes it is all about bigger is better and you lose I win. You are both intellectually dishonest and a travesty to those here who are in search of the truth good or bad.
