This is similar to what the USA did to Japan prior to WWII. I would think the response from Iran would be similar to Japan's, unless they find a new group of trading partners.

They'll need to find another way to transfer their funds if they do find new trading partners.

You are absolutely right, unless they find new nations that will trade directly with them and ignore the International Monetary Standard. I almost half way expect to see this happen, as that will give folks like George Sorros just the ammo he needs to demand that the monetary standard be changed. I can guarantee you that Russia and China will take a hard look at this to see what kind of advantage, if any, there might be for them in this. Iran and China together have two of the primary ingredients for a shift in world power; oil and man power. That alone won't do it, but it is enough to get folks over there interested I'm sure.

Once again, something here stinks. The Iranian people are generally good people, well educated and somewhat "Americanized" from the day's the Shah was around. Of all the dirtbag counties over there, the Iranian's don't really hate us. Oh, the government/religion, theocracy does, but the people don't.

Wait a moment until I adjust my tin foil hat.... o.k. I'm ready.
Remember last August, I think it was? The people were ready to overthrow the government and asked the U.S. for help? O'Blamebush said they're weren't asking for help (they were) but it wasn't a Soros, union backed, fill in the blank "spring". It was a real grass root movement.

I can't help but believe this is a "get your azz in line, or you'll suffer" shot across the bow.
I suppose we'll see.

That was the "Green Movement", that happened shortly after Obama was crowned "squatter in cheng". I feel like that attempt to rise up was the inspiration for the socialist uprising this past year. The lefties saw how effective they could be and started planning the "arab spring". That's why Obama left them hanging. Because his cronies didn't organize it.

Yep....I'm sure Iran is shaking in their boots at the thought of more sanctions. :icon_rolleyes:

In this case, Iran's government will suffer more than her people. Iranian policy, both internal and external, are fueled by money. With the loss of the International Monetary Standard, Iran will find it more and more difficult to fund Hezbollah. They will need to use hard currency from their reserves, which will be quickly depleted. The government can impose price restrictions internally, softening the blow to the people.

Expect China to make "deals" for Iranian oil, advantageous to China, to be sure. Payment will be in goods, and hard currencies. I'm also pretty sure that China will broker purchases for Iran, again at a price. In a few years, Iran will find themselves a vassal state of China, dependent almost entirely upon them. At that point, the Chinese will simply take over.
