    The United States in an attempt to provoke Iran into conflict formed sanctions to destroy their economy. Iran then took the action of stopping oil exports from the region. Now the United States sanctioned any talks with them. Well here come the higher gas prices and another war, way to go America.

    Oil prices were stagnating and threatening to drop. Of course the those pieces of shit had to get their dick out and start waving it around so prices would possibly go back up.

    Case number 148561887 on why we need energy independents from these dickwads.

    And no I'm not advocating Pinwheels, Mirrors and Moonshine to replace them.

    Iran has very little ability to refine oil. It needs the oil to flow or it would ruin their economy. No income from oil and no gas for their cars and trucks.

    Is this "current events"? If so...
    The U.S. didn't unilaterally advocate Iranian sanctions. A host of nations are on board.
    Iran mentions the Straits of Hormuz, traders flinched, oil pops $1.50/barrel.
    Big fucking deal.

    Iran’s official Islamic Republic News Agency cited Vice President Mohammad Reza Rahimi as saying the country would bar shipments through the strait if sanctions are imposed on its oil exports. U.S. oil inventories probably dropped for a third week, a Bloomberg News survey showed before an Energy Department report this week.

    Oil Trades Near Six-Week High on Iran Threat to Strait of Hormuz Shipping - Bloomberg

    So which is it? Iranian threats, or U.S. inventories dropping for the third week in a row?

    Again... $1.50/barrel? LOL

    Bottom line is that Iran would not be able to keep the Strait of Hormuz shut down for more than a week. They are a bit like N. Korea, all bark and no bite. It's kind of like being afraid that a Dachshund is going to bite you. It's a very scary thought, one that makes most people quake in their shoes.
