Brazil, Not Venezuela, Is Bigger Danger for U.S. Pressure on Iran
UANI Research Director Daniel Roth writes: "While Tehran’s audacious delivery of oil to Venezuela grabbed the headlines, Iran has been discreetly carrying sanctioned petrochemicals on sanctioned ships to Brazil, Venezuela’s neighbor to the south, for well over a year. On the same day that “Petunia” and “Faxon” docked in Venezuela amid dramatic reports of potential U.S. military intervention, one trade publication flatly announced the departure of yet another cargo of sanctioned Iranian petrochemicals heading to Brazil. And this latter trade is far more critical to the regime’s survival than a fleeting propaganda win over the White House."
