The US pulls out of a nuclear agreement with Iran and then declares economic war on it?

Maybe, the United States government is attempting to start a war?

Since Trump started his oil embargo of Iran, the price of a gallon of gas over here has gone up by more than a dollar a gallon. Yahoo, already so tired of winning.

Japan stopped importing Iranian oil Sept 2018. The previous imports were small about 7-9% of total imports.

So, Japan, again, following US orders. When will Japan become a sovereign state again and have an independent foreign/trade policy? The US has sanctions on 30 countries and rising. Beware, maybe Japan will be the next in their sight.

zichi, 7 to 9 percent is not small. Will the US reimburse Japan for the higher cost of the crude oil? No of course not, trump is taking the bread right out of our mouths! If there is not enough crude available to Japan, do you remember the last time America cut off crude oil to Japan? History keeps repeating itself...
