Near term,this will hurt Europe,and the World. Although someone ALWAYS fills the void.


The most likely outcome of an embargo on oil purchased from Iran is that the countries participating in the embargo buy less oil from Iran while other countries not participating in the embargo buy more oil from Iran ([1], [2]). While this would produce some dislocations, if total world oil production doesn't change, it would have little effect on either Iran or oil-consuming countries, and would basically be a symbolic gesture.






Scary Part?


And each of these events was also followed by a recession in the United States. The table below summarizes the average annual growth rate of U.S. real GDP in the 5 quarters following the above oil price increases. Instead of growing at the historical average of 3.2% per year, U.S. real GDP fell in each case.

Rumor has it that the Saudi might be lying about their oil stack. Many nations are known for being untruth full about their oil capacity, and Saudi is very high up there among those that lie the most. Many lie so that they can get contracts signed for the oil they claim to have or can export.

Hopefully it will push Europe to develop alternative sustainable sources of energy so they're not reliant on Russian and Middle Eastern energy, but I'm sure they'll find a way to mess it up and leave it until things reach breaking point and then still do nothing of note

As per to day we are still very dependent on oil to get the resources we need to manufacture alternative energies.

We need fuel to harvest minerals from the rock and so forth, and to transport it and to separate it from the rock. These resource's are not unlimited on stalk in the warehouse.

China holds most of the important minerals for this type of technology.

Gotta love the first two posts in this thread.

The OP and Professional cheering on and actually hoping for the suffering of Europeans. Not just government officials, but regular civilians.

Funny, you two are the first to scream bloodly murder when the west does anything to Iran. Is your need for vengence so strong you dont hold yourself to your own standards?

The Europeans were planning to endure hardships on the Iranians in the summer, your OK with that though?

Of course not.

If you read any of my posts, while i despise the Iranian leadership, i do not advocate bombing or sanctioning Iran, even if they are producing nuclear weapons. How could I, others including Israel have the bomb, wouldnt it be hypocritical of me to say they cannot?

My worry is nuclear materials will fall into the hands of Hezbollah, Hamas or the like and used against Israel or Western interests. That being said, with unstable countries like Pakistan or North Korea already having the technology and means, im not sure if it matters that much. In my opinion, its only a matter of time until we see a mushroom cloud or dirty bomb used somewhere, most likely the middle east.

The thing is, it would take a massive disruption to generate enough public anger, certainly in Britain, to go into another war. An energy crisis blamed on Iran's thoughtless actions might be the PR needed... suffice to say we could get the oil elsewhere, but hey opportunity knocks, cut the supply for a day or two and blame Iran.

Saddam halted oil exports for 30 days in solidarity with the Palestinian people. 11 months later Bush launched his 'Shock and Awe.'

People are willing to murder an entire country for oil. Women... little babies... human beings.

What YOU all fail to realize is that IRAN speaks nothing but pure fiction.

The country spouts so many BS lies and stories that no one takes them seriously, even their own citizens laugh at them from behind their closed doors.

They can cut off whoever they want BUT they were already cut off by European Sanctions.

This is good news because the SOONER we nuke Iran and kill it government the sooner we can pillage its oils supplies.

They are a problem country (being Islamic doesn't help) and they need a lesson. Then the oil will be Europes and Americas. GOOD.

The more they antagonize everyone the quicker the destruction of one of the dumbest nations on the planet will commence.

Plus, as the world knows, when it comes to carrying out dumb bombings for the sake of it, America is always just around the corner thinking "we can do that for you, just ask us". Japan anyone?

If I were a sovereign nation. And I had a major export. And my customers were accusing me of something I wasn't doing, constantly threatened to harm my way of life by sanctions and blockades, slandered me, positioned themselves against me with no real basis, and spread rumors about me being a 'threat' to the world when all I wanted was to provide people with a 21 Century solution to energy.....

I think I'd call a bluff after a while.

If it's Iran's oil, Iran has all the right to give customers the middle finger.

Is it going to create a whole S***storm? Yep, but poker isn't a friendly game.

Without fail you always seem to enjoy the thought of the west suffering in some way. If you think the sanctions do not effect the average citizen of Iran than your obvious disdain for the west has severely clouded your perception.

I don't agree with ANY of these worl leaders in how they are handling these affairs and that goes for Iran as well. But it is sickening to get your jollies off at the thought of common people paying for the PTB's stupidity.
