U.S. pens letter to Iran

By Elise Labott

The U.S. used multiple means of reaching out to Iran in response to the threat to blockade the Strait of Hormuz, a critical transit point for one fifth of the world's oil.

Among those messages, Washington sent a rare letter to the Iranian government, delivered by U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice to Ambassador Mohammad Khazayee, Iran’s permanent representative at the UN, according to a U.S. official who would only speak on the condition of anonymity.  The official would provide no further details

Iranian media quoted Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehman-Parast who said Iran is studying the letter and "will respond if necessary."

In addition, as reported previously, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta publicly warned Tehran against such a move last Thursday, threatening to “respond” if Iran attempts to shut down traffic. The US also sent diplomatic messages through Switzerland, its protecting power in the country and Iraqi President Jalal Talibani.

The messages came as tensions in the region continued to escalate. On Friday, the Navy and Coast Guard released video of two incidents on January 6th when Iranian boats came extremely close to U.S. vessels.

    its a shame that rogue states like Iran will push the envelope until something drastic has to take place. Japan found out the hard way that to do so will invite a disaster. Iran has the poorest of options now,,Israel will probably decide to destroy Iran with nuclear weapons,,as it should,,given the fact that it has vowed to destroy Israel,,the Israeli's cannot sit by and wait for the international community to act either allied with its cause or like Russia and China who are indifferent to an attack by Iran on Israel. given the terrible option that Israel must at all costs exercise,,,to do so quickly and with extreme force,,,is tantamount to its existence

      You don't know your ass from a hole in the ground,Ahmadinajhad never said he would wipe Israrel of the map.Thats a lie and everyone that tells it makes thewmselfs liers.Just like the lies about Iraq and WMD it's the sme lies about Iran.The differens is most people don't buy these lies no more.Iran has not attacked anyone in over 200 years,unlike America and Israel.Israel has broken over 70 UN resolutions more than the entire Mid East put togeather,with over 35 American vetos that allow the criomes including genocide to continue.Remember the Lavon Affaire the King David Hotel USS Lyberty the muder of british peace keeper in 1948,and the bobby traping of their body to kill other britsh military when finding the bodys.Israel is the real danger to the world look at the Sampson Option that treatens the world every day.You better educate yourself with fact that is unless you already no the truth but are a lieing Zionist.And I'm a Canadian born and raised,and am white so this is not lies as I have no reason to lie.1 Site that tells everthing in 1 place and I sugest you go and learn trutrh with all the evidence possible at Zionist Crime Factory.It coverts everthing so unless you want to remain ignorant you need to learn the facxts that you never here in the Jewish owned MSM.

    everyday white america shows just how ungodly they are. you comments are concrete proof whites are no where close to god. first of all nuclear weapons are not defenense they are tools to eliminate a entire race of people. who are these weapons defending us against god (hes the only one with power greater than a nuke) you went into labs to specificly devevlope a bomb to eliminate a group of people.NOW white people the world knows whites are the reason racism exist and you think the world is going to stand back and only let whites have nukes. P.S. if it wasnt for RUSSIA ONLY WHITE PEOPLE WOULD HAVE NUKES

      I agree with almost everthing you stated,but I'm white and don't judge people because of race because like me their are many white people that hate the crimes commited by the people in our governments.All races have good and bad people and liveing in Canada I have friends of almost every race and I hate what happens to Arabs Africans and even whites by the so called ellite warmonger Zionists.People do get the fealing whites are bad because many people see the Jewish owned MSM with whites telling lies,and it reflects on other whites.But like me most whites are no better of than any other race.It's not so much rich white and black as it is rich and poor,that is unless your modern Jews that are mostly Kazars and not biblicle Judeans.Look at the jewish role in the Trans Atlantic slave trade witch continues today,mostly with white women.Like the saying says DON'T JUDGE A BOOK BY IT'S COVER.As no 2 people think exactly alike no matter their race.This is exactly the type of thing they use to seperate use makeinbg it easyer to controll us.If united we the 7 billion could not possibly lose,they stir raceism and hate amoung the masses,and untill we break that they get exactly what they want.We need to stop letting them lie to make different races hate each other based on lies.Please realize there are a huge majority of white people that hate what others do to make use seem as we agree with them.

    @judaism is a big fat lie: You ought to learn English before you make a ludicrous response to someone with a brain. I'm not a "Zionist", I'm a US Marine who fought against real warriors in Vietnam with the 5th Marines, not whoosies like you Iranian soldier wannabes. If you dirtbags had any sense you'd know it's a dumb move to insult Marines – we'd kick your behinds so badly the virgins would laugh themselves silly over you. Bring it on you fools – we'll turn Iran into a big parking lot for a MacDonalds and give it to Israel, or perhaps create an Iranian hog farm.

      Dear Dumb Americans

      If you believe all this Iran crap, then you're our kind of goyms. Do what we say and we'll let you stay stupid like you like it and we won't make you think for yourselves – if you did you would see how much we have conned you stupid idiots.

      We killed JFK for messing with us and we'll kill anyone else who will mess with our nwo.

      Just sit back and take it in the backside where we like to give it – We're all queers anyway and soon everyone will be a fag.

      We own America. Obama works for us. Soon we're going to make you dumb American's go to war with Iran so we can be the only bad arses with nukes in the middle east – we'll be able to ramrod everyone here. Make them give us their land and if they don't we'll just kill them and take it.

      Yeah, we're bad and we know it.

    I hope the american and their allies will only stop buying crude oil from iran and not to force iran from exporting oil to her friendly nations. Am sure if they attempt to force Iran not to export oil it will be a plain reason for Teheran to do what Ahmadnejad promised to do. Israel nuclear arsenals at Dimona will suffer the concequence and eventualy the Nuclear war will be evident.

      Ok this is to everybody. Do you all not remember how this ends? Israel are Gods chosen people. His son was born to this nation and he will return. The Muslims will indeed try to kill off the Israelite's but they will not succeed. They will survive like they did in Egypt, in Canaan and in World war II. God has never broken a promise and has never been wrong. Every single one of his promises and predictions as quoted in the Bible has come true. The only one left to full fill is the return of his Son to Israel were he will sit on his throne in the same spot that the Muslims occupy with a dome on it. Every knee will bow to Christ including the Muslims. Be prepared my friends, it will happen soon.

We will be provided for by his grace and kindness, and poverty and disease will be a thing of the past. It has happened before, and it has been foretold that he will return.

    The U.S. is facing its worst economic crisis since World War II, not only through the integration of bank debt to the state budget, but also because of sharply rising government debt – the U.S. require 1 billion million dollars a day from foreign countries. If the foreign financial inflow is interrupted, or if foreign countries leave the dollar, the U.S. will surely face the state bankrupt.

    U.S. does not do any good effort to reduce rising government debt through economic measures.

    In the past, politicians in countries facing economic disaster they make often in the war in a last attempt to regain power. This is even more likely if a country permeated by shocks and considers war as a last option to overcome the economic stalemate.

    U.S. overcame its worst economic crisis, of the last century, with entry into 1st Wold War. Overcame the crisis of the global economy through the union in World War II, and now tempted to resolve the third crisis in a similar way.

    A war in Iran will not remain longer a local event, even if initially was performed only with missiles. On behalf of Iran, the Chinese would intervene directly or indirectly, and possibly the Russians too, both to deter U.S. military presence on their borders and also to prevent the great strength of the U.S..

    On behalf of Israel and America, NATO will have to help, as happened in the war in Iraq, especially if you have previously committed to "the faith until death." Consequently, Europe will also have to prepare for participation in the upcoming war.

    What are the results;

    1) will lead to a dramatic increase in oil prices, a trend that will continue as the region at stake. A rise in the price of oil is always accompanied by a corresponding rise in costs for the economy and consumers.

    2) The armaments industry in the world – especially in the U.S. – will be happy, would lead to high production and develop more than ever. This will also lead to increased production in additional areas such as car industry, shipping and aircraft industries and others.

    3) The winners of any war are the banks. There will be no debate now about toxic products and "banksters" while central banks are bound to flood the war with fresh money. Then, banks could still be fed with new credits. At present, a rising inflation will keep stable the U.S. dollar by the end of the war. Usually only after the war settled all those sins committed during the war funding.

      Have you checked the value of Iran's currency against the U.S. dollar lately,... the Rial has lost 50% of it's value in the last week...also Iran has plenty of oil, but not enough oil refineries to meet domestic fuel demands....if Iran closes the Straits even for a short time it will hurt Iran the most...and an attack on Iran's oil refineries or fuel reserves would severely hamper their ability to fight a war with the U.S....

      Entering WWII did not get us out of the great depression era's economy. The simple fact that the war destroyed almost all of Western Europe and the implementation of the Treaty of Bretton woods did. The treaty set up the IMF, World Bank, and the GATT which opened up free trade. SInce the US was the only country able to produce commodities, it made trillions. Basically in the aftermath of the war, the US schemed to be the sole inheritor of the modern world's economy. Even the British lost their ability to compete, with RJG Boothby declaring that the "agreement of Bretton woods is like selling the British Empire for a packet of cigarettes."

    This comment is intended for anyone who can, without the help of google maps, point out where the strait of Hormuz is. If you did not pass brain activity test #1, please proceed to the nearest veterinarian and ask to be put down.
    Now, as a point of discussion to reasonable individuals, and those somewhat aware of the world that surrounds them, I say this: the strait of Hormuz is not under the rule of the United States; if our own doctrine that guided the foreign policy of the 20th century and beyond prescribes that South America is the USA's natural sphere of influence, wouldn't the same follow for Iran and the strait of Hormuz? The Persian empire has been upon its land for over 2000 years and people think it is reasonable to tell them what to do within the confines of their own natural sphere of influence? That is against the American way of liberty, and anyone who thinks it is ok to go and police an ancient rooted civilization on what they do in the lands that surround them is a reprobate upon our own flag. All of you paranoid, war mongering, know nothings are the real anti American douchebags; defaming the ideals of this country to feed your GI Joe fantastical mentality. You come on here and call for an end to human lives and then go kiss you mothers with the same mouth that your hate just spewed from. Every intel report on the subject coincides with Iran's claim that they are enriching uranium for medical and civil purposes, THAT IS THEIR RIGHT. Additionally, UN inspectors have been allowed to verify this information. You want to know who the problem child of the Middle East is? Israel, the very country committing genocide and robbing our country blind. That Zionist regime is the fourth Reich. Saudi Arabia is the other monster in our government. The terrorists that perpetrated 9/11 were largely Saudi. Not one was Iranian. The US is just mad that Iran wants nothing to do with them, and nationalized its oil rather than getting only 15% with the rest going to Britain.

      To you and all your supporters, Meetra, you of the Iranian government's propaganda bureau, I'd advise you to simply shut up. Your comments are more ludicrous than even those of the Chinazis. Do you think a creator God would be supportive of such a bunch of destructive fanatics who usurp such a God's omnipotence. Hate to burst your bubble but He wouldn't need a bunch of backwater bumpkins to accomplish His plans for humanity (btw, I don't believe in such an archaic concept as a creator God, Allah, or the Grand Poo bah – it's such an illogical concept).
      I believe you're trying to make reference to the Monroe Doctrine. If you had graduated from grade school you'd know that it doesn't interfere with free maritime passage, only with non-hemispheric colonization. By international treaties the Straight has free passage zones, and any attempt by your mad mullahs to interfere with that is an act of war. Your claim that "God" gave you planetary hegemony combined with your efforts to build nuclear weapons gives the sane world the right to pre-emptively defend itself from your madness.
      As a parting gesture I want to inform you that your arrogant little backwater wouldn't last a week against the US Navy, even less if we coalesced with the UK, France, and Israel – I'd say a matter of hours. The fact that we haven't eliminated your nuke program and Revolutionary Thugs already just bears witness that the free world has some tolerance towards the insane and foolish children. Go stone to death your mother or daughter and call it an "honor killing" – your warped mind will feel better.

Hitler gassing Jews is a far cry from Ahmadenejad telling the US to stay out of Iran's business in the strait of Hormuz. Obviously you have not studied WWII like you think you have. The policy of appeasement while Hitler performed military maneuvers on the Rhine after the international conditions placed on Germany after WWI have nothing to do with the US trying to control a nation's natural right to secure their boarders.

    If Iran blocks the Strait, the United States has every right to view such action as a threat to it's economic and thus it's existential security.  This action would be met with severe consequences as would be expected in the interest of American citizens.  A treatise could discuss the pros and cons of western free market idealism and civil autonomy versus Marxist theory and socialist utopian 'equality,' but in the end a stand must be taken by each nation for that principle in which they believe most fervently.  As it relates to the current situation in Iran, America has no choice but to take a hard line diplomatic stance backed by unequivocal military superiority when it faces a corrupt and apparently psychologically unstable tyrannical government which is even more dangerous given its purported religious authority.  American intervention in such a hypothetical brazen action by an otherwise volatile power would not be viewed negatively on the democratic global scale and Iranian leadership is acutely aware of this.  It is such awareness that will prevent blockade of the Strait and any disruption to global energy supplies.  Thus any uptick in commodity prices are purely reactionary and should be viewed as such by the scrupulous trader.  Furthermore, superficial commentary regarding the current tensions between Muslim and Western nations (which in itself can be considered oxymoronical) are inflammatory and unproductive.  Escalation of this situation would only benefit Western allies and in the current political climate explains the relative transparency with which it has unfolded.

Where is the Arab Spring in iran? Why dont the people rise up and stop this insane govt. Would that be considered Cowerdly? Stand Up to your government that is wanting to start a war. Also, Look at north korea, can you live in the dark with just a bag of dirty rice to eat? better get used to it unless you rise up an change it. its black and white. alive or dead. free or slaves good luck

      It is plausible in some respects that the closing of "the straits" could have a negative effect on the US at the same time it could be seen as provocative for the US or other western power to try and use force to prevent such from happening as the powers we are talking about do not have their backyards in the Middle East. I wonder what would happen if suddenly the Saudi's or other major suppliers decided to grant exclusive contracts for purchase of the oil under their soil to for example China.

    This note says to the Iranian Govt "Fact 1. Since you started war with us a long time ago infiltrating Iraq, you must pay. We are already at war that just hasnt been declared publicly Fact 2. You can not have the Nukes. Wont happen and is out of our control. Our so called puppet Isreal is not a puppet no more and will take care of business. Fact 3. You need the oil sales more then we need your oil. China and Russia wont let you close anything that screws with their economy that is fragile and close to anarchy, they own you Iran. Fact 4. You will loose. Millions will die and the avg age will drop to a teenager. Hard to run a country with kids in charge. Fact 5. You have too many religions that hate each other and when a war breaks out they will fight for their own. All man for himself. Fact 6. Guess what Iran, your oil is paid for by the good ol US Dollar, which will be like a bad check....worthless to you because or this thing called Embargo. We control the money that buys your oil and values the price of oil, so when it comes down to it you will have to sell your oil for pennies on the dollar. Then your people will starve and then your govt will fall. Iran Spring time. People need food not oil or a nuclear bomb. Time Out. You have 1 month to cough up your nuclear program or you will see your country implode by its self. oh forgot, it already is...dont wait till its to late. Go ahead and send those boats out again, see what happens to them. They will be great navagation markers for the ships.Give up the nukes. NOW!!!

      Push comes to shove I am sure that the Chinese or Russians would gladly take any oil headed for the US and into their own domestic economy should the situation go down that path. Then it would be up to the US to find other sources to make up for any loss in supply.

      If you could read & comprehend you'd realize America didn't "get her ass kicked in Vietnam" – thanks to our gutless media and politicians we just left and betrayed our South Vietnamese allies. I was there, I know first hand. The North Vietnamese were a tough enemy, but we wasted them, and if our politicians and media weren't so gutless we'd have taken the place over. You Iranians can't compare to them – we'd kick your butts back to the middle ages where you belong.

    America fires a hundred nuclear weapons at Iran, it surely will wipe out iran, but Iran does not have much to loose, they are a lost cause already. Their people dont know anything else other than living in suspicion and beint at war.
    One nuclear weapon hits the US and it will wreck such chaos in here, that for the next 100 generations we will be living in fear, our govt will ban wearing any form of clothing, just incase someone may be hiding nuclear weapons in their clothing. They will start putting their hands way up our back sides to check for explosives if we want to get on public transport. havent we lost enough ? Go to war and we loose, the next few generations will be paying for this war. We cannot afford another war. The Iranians can take a daily bombing we cannot take a single fire cracker here, the whole country will start turning orange red, blue, greeen yellow – alerts. The common med will suffer, the politicians will make their money, their friends will mint money and stash it away. Their families will not be affected, they will not have their kids fighting in Iran. Wake up and smell the smoke, or keep sleeping and never wake up.

The difference is Iran doesn't have the choice to chose who represents them. Iran cannot have nuclear weapons because they are a fragile nation that is on record saying they will anihilate Israel off the map. I'm not a fan of israel, but they deserve to live in peace just like everyone in the middle east and the world. Some countries just have no business with nuclear weaponry. Iran is near the top of that list.

    Any escalation of the situation will cause additional problems since apart from the Oil-Rich soft states of the Middle East, US concerns for Human Rights seem negligible. Especially in Africa. Given the recent status of Iraq as a broken state from its earlier robust existence – what was done to it by US Forces and the Kuwait war – would mean a serious issue for other Muslim states and any escalation would mean a single determination in the strategic sense: the elimination of Muslim states or their capitulation to NATO forces even as states. The notion of any Arab coalition arising against NATO forces seem pretty dim. In such a scenario one probably would have Russia and China even it out and save the Islamic states. By themselves they are more Saudi Arabia than Iran and this means that they are aware of their own soft status even within the Middle East.
