US seeking to ‘close down’ Iran central bank

Introduction by Paul Powers – January 13, 2012

According to Dr. John Coleman author of The Tavistock Institute of Human Relations and The Committee of 300 “all wars are economic in origin”.  All first world countries use nuclear energy as a significant source of fuel to empower their economies.  France for example uses as much as 75% nuclear power.  The Committee of 300 does not want Iran to develop into a vibrant first world nation using nuclear energy as the west does.  The United States citizens are continually brainwashed with the absurd scenario that Iran is going to use nuclear bombs to “get the west.”  Iran already has chemical and bacteriological weapons that could do essentially the same damage a nuclear weapons could do.  Exposure to black pox (ebola genes mixed with small pox) would be every bit as fatal as nuclear fallout.  An Iranian nuclear bomb is simply a red herring.  Any nation not beholden to the international banking cartel becomes a “threat to the security of the world.”

US seeking to ‘close down’ Iran central bank

Breitbart – January 12, 2012

The latest round of American sanctions are aimed at shutting down Iran’s central bank, a senior US official said Thursday, spelling out that intention directly for the first time.

“We do need to close down the Central Bank of Iran (CBI),” the official told reporters on condition of anonymity, while adding that the United States is moving quickly to implement the sanctions, signed into law last month.

The sanctions, broadly aimed at forcing Tehran to shift course on its nuclear program, targeted Iran’s crucial oil sector and required foreign firms to make a choice between doing business with Iran or the United States.

Foreign central banks that deal with the Iranian central bank on oil transactions could also face similar restrictions under the new law, which has sparked fears of damage to US ties with nations like Russia and China.

“If a correspondent bank of a US bank wants to do business with us and they’re doing business with CBI or other designated Iranian banks… then they’re going to get in trouble with us,” the US official said.

The measures were contained in a mammoth $662 billion defense bill, which President Barak Obama signed on December 31 at a time of rising tension with Tehran, which has threatened to block the Strait of Hormuz — through which more than a third of the world’s tanker-borne oil passes.

The United States has warned it will “not tolerate” such an interruption.

There are fears that increased sanctions on Iran’s central bank could force the global price of oil to suddenly soar, and actually give Tehran a financial windfall on its existing oil sales.

Rising oil prices could also crimp the fragile economic recovery in the United States and inflict pain on American voters in gas stations — at a time when Obama is running for reelection next year.
