When targetting Iran, is the real target China?

Here's something to think about. When you consider that Iran's crude oil exports to China dramatically increased in the first two months of 2011(see http://www.payvand.com/news/11/apr/1057.html) and remember that the US dollar no longer plays a role in that trade, you see how important it is to understand Chinese-Iranian relations and how they pertain to the world's fiat currency system, the US elections, and the propaganda campaign about Iran's nukes (see http://www.campaigniran.org/casmii/index.php?q=node/9434).

Geopolitically, Iran will be next because the real target is elsewhere, and too strong to strike directly. The real target in the neoconservatives' sites is China, and always has been. The game is encirclement, and its purpose, the frustration of the Project for the New Chinese Century.

Iran is next because of what it means to China. Particularly, that Iran is its primary source of petroleum and natural gas.

Seems like a reasonable

assessment to me, thanks for posting.

Here's what the CFR said about it back in March, 2011:

China's posture toward Iran and the U.S. response will have implications for both the global energy business and international diplomacy. .....

Washington must balance persuasive and dissuasive tools in order to strengthen Beijing's cooperation on Iran and continue to work with it on other priorities, such as North Korea, climate change, and reforming the international economic order.....The Republican Party's resurgence in Congress in the November 2010 elections will put pressure on the White House to turn up the heat on both Iran and China. Congress can make its preferences felt through tough rhetoric, hearings, investigations, and reporting requirements. Proposals for new penalties against Tehran, including sanctions against any company that purchases Iranian crude oil, are already circulating on Capitol Hill.


Worth reading in full. Notice how nothing is being said here about Iran's nukes.

something to think about . . .

--fighting wars 'by proxy'--

it's all insane, at any rate.

All the warmongering is completely insane.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--
