AHHHHHH ......‘Lateral Thinking’ or lack off in your case, as you demonstate ....... :D

Any opportunity to put the boot in for any of the countries the US and its allies have deemed to be ‘enemies’, but as you so often do you end up kicking yourself up the arse! :lol:

You see, the problem I have with this action by the UK is that there are no EU or UN restrictions on the transportation of oil TO Syria ....... the restrictions are all on oil FROM Syria to the EU! Do you see that subtle difference? :roll:

Syria - Financial Regulation 878

Article 3
(a) It shall be prohibited to import crude oil or petroleum products into the Union if they:
(i) originate in Syria; or
(ii) have been exported from Syria;
(b) to purchase crude oil or petroleum products which are located in or which originated in Syria;
(c) to transport crude oil or petroleum products if they originate in Syria, or are being exported from Syria to any other country;
(d) to provide, directly or indirectly, financing or financial assistance, including financial derivatives, as well as insurance and re-insurance, related to the prohibitions set out in points (a), (b) and (c); and
(e) to participate, knowingly and intentionally, in activities whose object or effect is, directly or indirectly, to circumvent the prohibitions in point (a), (b), (c) or (d).

So the reason (excuse) the UK gave to justify the implementation of Washington's instructions is actually invalid! As a result they have made themselves look rather stupid and kicked off Iran’s retaliatory actions. :lol: :lol:
LR
As always, you rush to defend absolutely anything that comes out of Moscow, Tehran, Beijing, Damascus, Pyongyang. Well, anywhere there’s a resident dictator really.


Oh really? Which one of those is a Dictatorship. Going by the way the US President acts I would have thought he was as big a dictator as any you list! He runs the USA on Presidential Orders and Twitters ..... at least Putin passes his proposals through the Russian Parliament first. :roll:

Cyprus intercepted a ship bound for Syria with illegal arms for the illegal regime there.

Therefore, Gibraltar is looking for more illegal arms. :D

We can't be too careful after-all.

This is about OIL not ARMS and about EU sanctions which the UK has misapplied! The Russians can provide them with any weapons they need and do it legally, they do not need to smuggle arms in a super tanker from Iran!

The Assad government is the government recognised by everyone but ..... YOU! It is not 'illegal'! What is illegal however is any action in Syria by coalition forces and of curse the supply of weapons and assistance to rebels trying to overthrow the elected government. :roll: :x

Cherry picking in extremis. :wink:

You think Putin doesn’t exercise dictatorial powers and that the Duma can use inhibiting checks and balances? Really? :lol:

You don’t believe that Khameini (“The Supreme Leader”) exercises dictatorial powers, through the all-powerful IRGC in Iran? :lol:

Xi Jinping, isn’t a dictator? :lol:

You don’t regard Bashir Assad is a nepotistic, third generation dictator of Syria? Really? (I’m forgetting, he’s a “democrat”). :lol:

You don’t see Kim Jong-Un as dictator of North Korea (another 3rd generation). Really? :lol:

:eyecrazy:

Yet - in Sherwood Forest, Trump is one?

But, doesn’t he have to run for re-election at the end of next year? Even then, if successful isn't he forced to stand down by the Constitution at the end of a second term? Which of the above non-dictators has that problem?

For somebody of your intelligence, you do sometimes say the most ludicrous things. I suspect, your just having a larf though.

Anyway, it’s certainly true that you have never been known to disagree with any of the non-dictators mentioned. In fact, you go further. You’re an outspoken defender, with an unblemished 100% record.

Iran illegally seized a ship in Omani waters, to be held hostage. Nothing changes - ehh? :wink:

Although, illegally seizing a ship at sea is apparently perfectly OK.

What’s that word again?

Who said it's not illegal?

We have a duty to stop these ships from reaching their destinations to protect the citizens of Syria from murder and other war crimes.

there must be something very strange in the water at Sherwood Forrest.

I reckon the Americans have been Chem Trailing overhead Sherwood again, and spraying something very strange indeed!

Robin will tell you all about it I am sure! :lol: :lol: :lol:

What I said was: “..... I would have thought he (Trump) was as big a dictator as any you list?” which I think is a fair comment. He does rule through Presidential Orders and Tweets!

Well done you have done just what you always do, you can’t show that the UK misapplied EU sanctions which was what I posted about ..... so you blank that out and you go off on the usual sarcastic tangent based on the unrelated trivia you introduced into the thread in the first place and of course the usual assault on my integrity! :roll:

Then your ‘two neuron’ side kick pops up with what he thinks is humour! Don't give up the day job .....the pair of you will never match the Two Ronnies!

Right now in the UK they have a whole bunch of very highly paid lawyers, which the taxpayers are paying for, ploughing through their legal books to find a way out for the UK where they can save face. Like you keep complaining ...... when somebody is wrong they should admit it. Why don’t you instead of trying to obfuscate? It just shows that really you have no capacity for either lateral or critical thinking, which is why you inevitably fall back on your usual MO! :roll:

Damn! Looks like WW3 is averted again. :(

Thanks it seems to those hated British US poodles and their puppet courts.
