As the US seems to be gearing up for a war with Iran what would happen if the Iranians manage to block the gulf of Hormuz. How long would it be for us in the west to start feeling it at home either through cost or an actual lack of fuel. How much do we have in a ready reserve, what would be the effects of a long drawn out war, Iraq2 has been going for 3 years. Could such action seriously damage our economies.

The economy would crash. The world is tired of US arrogance, the US economy is fake, it's hidden, it's on the edge of collapsing. If they attack Iran, it's finish for the US economy, and the government know this, but they don't care, they'll use this economic crash to further the path of fascism.

So they win if they attack Iran, even if their economy crash.

Prince, instead of one liners how about adding logical thought to the discussion. Whats happening in the ME is not a game these are serious issue's and if you feel that you cannot contribute in an intelligent way sometimes its better for people to think your a fool rather than opening your mouth and proving it.

I would love to add more than one liners but some of these topics are so trite, theres really nothing to debate. It can all be summed up in a one liner. Okay since you like to read sentences, lets think about this for a minute. Iran blocks the Straight and disprupts oil flow? Yeah right. This would be tantamount to suicide for the Iranians and the striaght would be reopened in no time. The US isnt the only country dependent on oil and if you think for one second the rest of the world is gonna sit and watch this happen you're crazy.

Better?

Or you could have had my one liner condensed version: The straight of Hormuz would be opened back up VERY quickly...lets just put it like that.
