Iran oil shipment: Venezuelan military to escort fuel tankers

(STL.News) A new standoff could be brewing between the United States, Iran and Venezuela, over a shipment of millions of dollars of fuel.  Five Iranian oil tankers are just days away from arriving in Venezuela to help ease fuel shortages there.
