Iran’s Guards threatens to block oil shipments in Gulf

Public Policy

An Iranian Revolutionary Guards commander said on Wednesday that Tehran will block oil shipments through the Strait of Hormuz in the Gulf if the United States bans Iranian oil sales.

“If they want to stop Iranian oil exports, we will not allow any oil shipment to pass through the Strait of Hormuz,” Ismail Kowsari was quoted as saying by the Young Journalists Club (YJC) website.

    Boat, there are no “two parties” so why waste time arguing who is better? They are both ass kissers to the oligarchs, your real masters.

    Boat, you are absolutely correct on this one. What I want to see is the Us brought to its knees financially so it cannot afford a large military budget, and has to bring its thug army and obsolete fleets home.
    Mak ,unfortunately not going to happen. Once famous white house hawk Madlin Olbright said why we have this army if we dont use it ( and God knows who else said this). Trilion or more for the army is nothing because Us can print $ as crazy. Us will attack Iran I am sure its just a matter of time or Iran will bow down which I hihgly doubt

    And one more thing economic sanction are formidable weapon but they never succeeded in changing the authority . Even if the Usa impose naval blockade the oil will keep rolling , but it will be much expensive of course I know that from my experience

    Big oil is sowing the seeds for a ‘super-spike’ in crude prices above $150, Bernstein warns

    Oil prices could top all-time highs as energy companies invest too little money in new production, Bernstein Research warns.

    The underinvestment could cause a super-spike “potentially much larger than” $150 a barrel.

  15. GregT on Fri, 6th Jul 2018 11:02 am 

    Here’s some food for thought MM:

    http://northernbushcraft.com

    I have an entire library of books, (yes that’s correct, books, as in bound paper) on the subject. I am surrounded by tens of thousands of hectares of food MM. All there for the eating. As far as I know, there are only two species of plants here that are not edible, and several species of mushrooms. Many of which have other ‘special’ properties.

    What’s your plan MM?

  17. GregT on Fri, 6th Jul 2018 11:25 am 

    I don’t do ‘full blown fash’ MM, whatever that’s supposed to mean.

    According to the LTG model, that you continue to link over and over again, the BAU scenario shows ~4 billion humans on this planet by 2100. As I have pointed out, also over and over again, I find that to be overly optimistic.

    IMVHO, if MIS manages to somehow continue on for several more decades, which is entirely possible, mankind faces extinction from environmental limits, not from economic limits.

    How you choose to face your own future is your own personal choice. My personal choice does not include putting a bullit into my own head. I am not a quitter MM.

    Even Dennis Meadows said the limits to growth models can’t be trusted after the collapse..You are grasping at straws because you have spent all this money and moved..You have a conflict of interest..I on the other hand..Do not..

  19. GregT on Fri, 6th Jul 2018 12:11 pm 

    If you care to look back several years into this forum MM, you will see that I have been talking about the distinct possibility of economic collapse right from the get go. I have spent two decades wrapping my head around the subject, and both my wife and myself spent over five years searching for a viable location to ride out the ‘storm’, so to speak.

    Other than a catastrophic runaway greenhouse event, which judging from the radical shift in the weather here already, is entirely a possibility, we have all of the bases covered, and have no concerns whatsoever.

    It is completely understandable that you are both depressed, and suicidal. I myself also went through a period of depression, but I got over it, and turned my life around into something positive.

    What you do with your life is your choice, what I am doing with my life is my choice, and I have no concerns, or regrets.

    I can see that, despite accusations from the Great Thinker of the Ozarks, namely that you would a “Canadian nationalist” (which apparently is very bad in the eyes of said Great Thinker), the truth is that you are more of a hyper-individualist and ecologist-fundamentalist. Because otherwise you would have known that the explicit cause of American (white) nationalism is breaking up the republic and pave the way for a white ethno-state (my prediction: coinciding with the Mississippi bassin):

    Greg, We live in Southern Oregon and love it.
    Thursday, a huge wild fire erupted in California,
    blocking I-5 and a smaller state hwy. we perch on. Lucky this time, prevailing winds blew the fire AWAY from our farm.

    All this time I’ve been prepping for ‘The Big One’.

  22. GregT on Fri, 6th Jul 2018 12:42 pm 

    Yes Bob, wildfires are a concern, and have been a regular topic of discussion and planning at the local community level here. Fortunately, wildfires remain relatively rare in our forest ecosystem, but with the continued drought like conditions, that will likely change.

    The interior of British Columbia, however, is a firestorm of biblical proportions just waiting for a time to happen.

    The last time I checked, there were already over 50 million hectares of dead standing forest due to climate change. Eventually it is all going to go up in a blaze of glory.

    It is amazing how easy it is for the elites to control borders when they actually want to. How perverse that a nation collapsing from third world immigration sees a white patriot as a threat.

    And Bob,

    My wife and myself have spent a great deal of time over the years travelling throughout Oregan. We have always loved it there. One of my more memorable experiences in life, was going through the Ape Caves on the south slope of Mt. St. Helens. We have a picture of the two of us there on our dresser in the master bedroom. Highly recommended.

    The GOP’s “dedication to wealth and corporate power is so extreme that they cannot get votes on their actual policies — which are now being revealed to us daily — and so have had to mobilize a voting base on issues unrelated to their service to their actual constituency,” he explained. “These include religious fundamentalism — a major phenomenon in the US unlike other developed societies — white supremacy, xenophobia and other latent anti-social attitudes that tend to break through to the surface during periods of disillusionment and distress. This is partly a matter of ‘search for scapegoats,’ the actual sources concealed in the usual manner of propaganda; thus, the public vastly exaggerates the number of immigrants, even more than in Europe.”

    Airbus projects 4% annual growth and arrives at a doubling of the number of planes (48,000).

    Compare that to Eindhoven airport, a so-called “regional airport”. They expect to grow not 4 but 10% this year to 6.3 million passengers. That is like transporting the entire town like Eindhoven 31 times over.

    I wonder. We have actually been living in the peak oil dynamic since 1970, when US conventional oil peaked. Ever since then, labour productivity growth has been on a declining trend. Since 1980, interest rates have gradually declined, as western countries have tried to stimulate economic growth with cheaper money. We are certainly in for a very severe recession, hell we are in one already. But will we truly face the zombie apocalypse that Millimind envisages? We get to find out in real time. One way or another, we are living through a unique period in history.

    “Airbus projects 4% annual growth and arrives at a doubling of the number of planes (48,000).”

    There is a logical contradiction between doubling commercial aircraft in service, whilst the global liquid fuel supply shrinks. Somewhere along the line, there will either be a fuel shortage or a shortage of people that can afford to fill the planes.

    We are getting perilously close to the point where unconventional oil can no longer make up declines in lower cost conventional oil.

    Cloggie and Boat both live in delusions of their own making. I don’t see any commercial planes flying in 20 years. Nor privately owned vehicles powered by any energy source except leg power (bicycles).

    MM and Davy live in different delusions that fit their wants and fears. Cannibal zombie rapists or that the Us will remain the “exceptional” country and not suffer the most pain of all. Delusions, both. Civil war most likely.

    Meanwhile, billions will survive and go on with life in the lesser countries that still have self-sufficient peoples and resources. I live in one of them. Only climate change can wipe out the total human race, and that is likely late in this century. We shall see.
