Ok ,

Another man should walk through the Zionist hall of fame. Then there will be not much change after it. those Zionist presidents who support their candidates want to follow their interests in return.

And bringing another president who is blessed by that Zionist lobby is not going to change the situation ,much.

American people should be independent.

One day, dammit, one day, you shall pay dearly for this.

The root of all problems is that they don't believe in the day or they could have done much better than they have done.

Different threads start in ME issues , but there are much people supporting Zionism.

And , since most of these people don't even live in Israel , it is clear for me they have some interests in supporting them.

But you could guess what kinds of interests.

I think they have every right to close the Strait if they wish. When will people start seeing the only thing they want to do with Iran is control the oil and instal a central bank. Look what the central banks have done to the west. Would you want one installed.
Things would be a lot better is the US had not over thrown the democracy there in 1953. Iran until that point was westernised in many respects.

If Iran sells oil to private smugglers and brokers, and they in turn sell to other countries, how would anybody know for sure the oil is not from Iran ?

Can a chemical test tell the difference.

And what if Iran stores their gold in a Chinese bank or any other "friend" of Iran ?

The test for America will be if China and Russia choose to by pass the dollar and pay in gold for crude , if this alternative way of paying proceeds other smaller buyers will jump onboard , the yanks will not be best pleased, regarding the Saudi oil surplus that they say will help Europe in the light of no Iranian oil , that will push the price up by say 25% because the Saudi oil reserves are exactly that reserves , as the west uses the reserves the price rises also If the Iranians blocked the straight , that would effect how they moved there own oil to other buyers.

Don't forget this folks that it is winter in a good part of the world and winter demands oil or your going to die from hypothermia sooner than later.

This war crap is needless and you don't have to be a rocket scientist to know that, I for one am sick to death of the death of innocent folks in the name of "National Security"

You think not-war is peace?

You poor deluded person.

You want peace - figure out how to get trade around Saud and Iran. THAT would significantly increase peace in World.

Iran's has its political camps too. The Mullahocracy controls all of them, but they seem to have differing opinions on which type of Jihad works best at any given moment.

Now, if someone could cut their gas supply, then we might be "cooking with gas."

(thanks for the phrase Team Camper.)

I like this quote:

According to Revolutionary Guard commander Brigadier General Jafaari, "The enemy is far more advanced technologically than we are, we have been using what is called asymmetric warfare methods… our forces are now well prepared for it," he said, as cited by Global Bearings.

Again. Teaching the cradle to be pirates will have a different type of consequence.
