Iranian Oil Reaches Crisis-Stricken Venezuela

- Much to Turkey’s dismay, the EastMed gas pipeline project has been approved by the Cypriot cabinet, and studies are currently in progress. The consortium comprises Cyprus-Greece-Israel for the 1300-mile underwater pipeline project that will carry gas from the southeast Mediterranean to continental Europe. The consortium will now begin the process of lining up buyers for the Israeli gas. The project is expected to cut into Russian gas supplies and cut Turkey out of the deal (which is what makes Libya so important to Erdogan).

- The fourth Iranian fuel tanker has made its way into Venezuelan waters in a direct challenge to US sanctions on both countries. The first three tankers that Iran sent to Venezuela have already arrived and are in the process of unloading.

    Up to this point, the Iranians have been reacting for the last 40 years to an aggressive war by the West on many fronts. They have now grown strong enough to start responding back in asymmetrical manners that the US cannot process, nor respond to themselves. And this is because the US is a bully who cannot handle being hurt.
