NEWS 1: Iran, Venezuela challenging U.S. energy dominance

It has been few weeks since the rumors began spreading that Iran intended to ship several fuel con­signments to Caracas to help alleviate Venezuela’s severe fuel problems.

The rumors got closer to reality when last week, news agencies around the world reported that five tankers carrying Iranian fuel have set sail for Venezuela.

Angry with Iran’s bold act of defi­ance, Washington is reportedly con­sidering military measures in response to Iran’s fuel shipment to Caracas and unconfirmed reports suggest that the U.S. intends to deploy its navy to the Caribbean.
