Iran is facing further isolation, as the world's biggest electronic banking system, known as SWIFT, prepares to cut off dozens of financial firms blacklisted by the EU. It's part of a broader effort by European nations who also plan to impose an embargo on Iranian oil this summer, to pressure Iran over its nuclear programme. But as Sara Firth reports, the measures are likely to ricochet back.

Its not that complicated; follow the money. It goes to defense contractors and oil barrons. They are internationalists with no ties to religion, race, or country. It is no longer the world you think it is, where its "country" vs. "country" or this "people" vs. "that people". No, people/countries are just pawns. They like to point their insignificant fingers to whoever they can without understanding where all the control is coming from. Its right there in front of you, but you refuse to see.

fuck eu israel an usa 
they could close the strait of hormuz but dont forget that the west are far more self sufficient than iran. iran doing so would starve the life out of their country and when america finishes them for it you will see why. the objective is to starve the middle east of all its oil which will happen one day definitely within 40 years but then what? by this time the west would thrive on alternative energy sources saving there own oil, leaving the middle east without a pot to piss in. think about it
russia are the devils advocate they wont back up iran, had it not been for the americans interfering with there war in Afghanistan russia would probably be whistling the same tune. or you could be right only time will tell 
If russia put it's foot down and placed warships off coast of Israel to prevent war all countries would back down.
America is run by filfthy zionist Jew scum. Close the strait of Hormuz already so that way the world will realize this isnt a damn game and their credit cards wont save them.
@ME096757 they are a plague to this world, the zionist.
