Iran Preparing to Block Gulf Oil and Wreck Western Economies


www.israelnationalnews.com

Iran’s recently-concluded war games concentrated on preparations to block the Persian Gulf and wreck Western economies in the event that the United Nations Security Council tries to place harsh sanctions against it.

Forty percent of the world’s oil and gas sails through the Persian Gulf, and an Iranian blockade would cause an inflationary spike in energy prices and a fuel shortage that could cause catastrophe for the West, which is dependent on Iranian crude to fuel their gas-hungry economies.

Israeli fear mongering wont stop for a second, not even the day of "Nuclear Swap" deal is done. Normal dump ass could easily think that these breaking news in Israel would be published with relief and full of joy, because finally those nuke threats are fading and Turkey and Brazil is doing everything they can to delete nuclear shadows from Israels horizon...

But that is not the case - Its not peace but bloody war is what they want, not these tricky deals which are just exposing warmongering and banksters NWO agenda.

So they claim now - Fully baseless Iran sanctions will be seen as act of war, and Iran will response to those by attacking EU/USA economies... And I really would do the same!

I can see that we will collapse here in EU in 8 weeks after Hormuz is blocked to total economical chaos, and in 12 weeks to social chaos - Greek style riots.

But what do they care? - Flying private jets and massive luxury boats in shores of distant Caribbean islands - its just us, and their puppets who are taking hits here.

This story reeks more than a dairy farm.

If Iran wants to be attacked this will certainly get the ball rolling.

Somehow I don't think Iran is that stupid.

Yeah no kidding. Especially since the price of oil is heavily down today.

And of course they would blame Iran for the collapse of the world's economy, not the bankers...

That would sure save them eh?

It would : start a war against Iran, rise oil prices, blame Iran for the economic collapse, not the banks...

Win win win for the elite.

If Iran does that either they are really really really really stupid... or they are controlled.

But when they are cornered to loose by West, why not triger loose-loose situation to both sides then - Irans destiny seems to been doomed anyway, so why not put western banksters to pay from what they are doing to them?

I understand Irans attitude quit well and when our gasoline is 250% from today and raising... I still will blame my domestic banksters and government.

Iran is not. They are getting more allies every day. Russia's pressure on Obama comes to mind. Turkey is leaning more and more towards helping. Even China seems like they're backing them. Ask who would be on our side? A broke EU? Israel?

Sure, Iran is going to sign it's own death warrant?

I highly doubt that. They are far smarter than we give them credit for.

War games are just that, war games.

Iran knows it holds all the cards BECAUSE of it's oil infrastructure and it's importance to places like China and Russia.

They would not dream of doing anything to compromise the economic relations with those two countries.

The Israeli/US propaganda machine is strong I see..

In this world no one is anybody's ally, as Mr. Kool Aid Mixing Obama has shown us. If the USA under this administration can stab its allies in the back *cough* Georgia *cough* Turkey *cough* India, then anyone can. Countries who are aligning with Iran now would like to see the Fall of the US as the superpower, Hell Obama himself is ashamed that America still remains a superpower.

What a biased load of crap. Israeli National News?

Let's feed the propaganda machine a little bit more, because Iran held practice maneuvers!

Practice, means perfect! Can't blame them for wanting to be prepared if Israel attacks them, now can we?

Not quiet, the ironic thing is since Iran lacks the amount of refineries they heavily dependent on imported gasoline and diesel.In case of war and isolation Iran will dry up in weeks and their "warmachine" or what is left of that will become immobile.Not only will the west avoid a regional power a blockade is the reason US has Centcom over there and a couple of carrier battle groups.I'am not sure about Brazil's intentions but i know Erdogan is not quiet trustworthy, this thing is far from over.Even after the swap deal they want to enrich to higher percentages.

THIS IS SO SICKENING, we have been letting North Korea and others get away with so much BS talk. That anyone and everyone thinks that they can say or better yet, KNOWS THEY CAN GET AWAY WITH SAYING ANYTHING ABOUT THE WEST AKA AMERICA. Because America now has a WEAK Socialistic agenda's president.

This is sad, very sad. I think that they forgot to mention that they now have a way of shooting bolts of lightning from thier Arses. Frickin rediculous.

Why are the American people not hungry for respect ... It's not given .. I think we forgot that RESPECT IS TAKEN AND YOU HAVE TO MAKE PEOPLE RESPECT YOU.

I agree that the Iran has a lack of infrastructure to really use their resources to their maximum output/input.

I assume that will all change soon. As the energy needs of China and Russia increase, they will want Iran to develop it's energy sector and infrastructure.

Which means cooperation on a grand scale to get refineries and depots up and running.

At least, that would be the smart thing to do.

Who ever starts it will probably not be that clear, at least at the beginning. If Iran were to use proxies in Lebanon then it could be started by a 'skirmish' on the border like the last bout. Or if Israel wanted it then a false flag or some such.

Regardless, it looks like this summer may be the big one over there. And to say that it would push debt ridden economies over the edge is obvious IMO. Afghanistan isn't even controllable. How is the Broke US gonna occupy all arab lands to ensure the supply of oil if they are controlled by Tehran?

Why would you need anyone else when you have the Gods Chosen Ones on your side?

On a serious note, i really hope Iran acquires nukes and shut the ducks quakin for good.

And israel can STFU and concentrate on its own illegal nuclear stockpile in Dimona.

Just a little history lesson here:

Iran has blocked the Persian Gulf before, back in the 1980's, during the Reagan administration.

Back then the UN designated a number of foreign oil tankers as "US Merchant Marine" ships, which gave the US Navy authority to escort those ships into and out of the gulf. They even went so far as to arrange the ships in convoy fashion, to minimize any threat from Iranian mines.

Now I have no opinion on the veracity of the story in the OP, but Iran has actually tried to blockade the gulf before - With no resulting "world war" or economic collapse.

(ps: The US Navy totally kicked Iran's "navy" square in the backside back then)

first of all there is something that people in the US of A boast about all day long and thats called freedom of speech, so what makes you think america can take that away from other countries, they can say anything they want to anyone they wanna say to and guess what, america cant do sh*t about it.

Just because Obama is not a warmonger doesnt mean hes weak, theres 2 sides of every person and you havent seen obama second side.


This is sad, very sad. I think that they forgot to mention that they now have a way of shooting bolts of lightning from thier Arses. Frickin rediculous.


this is not sad, whats sad is how ignorant and selfish most US citizens are. listen buddy the world doesnt revolve around you, you cant tell/force the world how to live so get over it!!


Why are the American people not hungry for respect ... It's not given .. I think we forgot that RESPECT IS TAKEN AND YOU HAVE TO MAKE PEOPLE RESPECT YOU.


If you want respect you should go charge george bush for crimes against humanity, and while you're on that stop funding israel and supporting them kill innocent children every day and hour. also maybe you should stop living that wasteful life style you lazy c*nt. you're country put the world in this whole mess and the only way out is by the collapse of the US, which will be caused by the US itself. welcome FEMA buddy!

That's why asymmetric warfare is so important to the Iranians and why they have bought and developed many super/hypersonic missiles. There is no defense against such. Just do a little research on ssn22's and the like. Oh, and of course many small/fast vessels to deploy them.

Then there are the diesel electric subs acquired from Russia and bottom-tethered mines from China. Everything is not always as it seems.

Of course, direct strikes on port facilities would seem to be the most direct. Since they couldn't be rebuilt right away.
