Japan could also tell the US where it can put its illegal sanctions...

So Trump’s strategy is to impose sanctions on Iran just to force Japan to buy shale oil! He is not commander in chief, but sales hack in chief!

The Oil price should be under $ 60/barrel. OPEC controlling oil price is no good for the world economy and poor countries. Some of money from OPEC countries has gone to terrorist groups. The US Government must force the Saudi Government to produce more Oil until the price drop to under $ 60/barrel mark.

The Japanese refinery buying more oil from the US is good but also the Japanese Oil Companies should invest in South East Asia.
