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.

    5 years ago the human race was gonna collaspe any day. At least you have moved to by twenty years. Your maturing through the result of being wrong for years. Hey, at least your complain and hate are consistent.

    You can prove nothing with paid-for references, MM. You CAN get a more realistic idea of the future by just observing events around you (Chicago, San Fran, etc.) and the general trend (Joblessness, debt, inflation, suicide, drug epidemic, etc.). The US is going insane and it will only get worse.

    The 3rd world is still growing and will continue to. People who live there are used to having to work every day to survive. OECD people, not so much. Too many years of plenty and excess. Obese, drugged up, uneducated, brainwashed, unhealthy teat suckers all. The fall will be most severe in those countries. SPLAT!

    Do you have some evidence to prove your argument?

    You have delusions of invincibility..

    Boat, I am not “wrong”. No one expected the system to last this long. It has only done so by making the eventual crash even worse. I did not move that crash time 20 years. I only said that in 20 years no commercial planes would be flying, etc. It could happen next year or any time in the next 20 but likely sooner than later. The eventual financial crash may ground all of the planes when no one can afford to fly, ever.

    You only see what you want to see. Not reality. And, BTW, you are living in an ongoing slow crash and have been since at least 2001. Enjoy!

    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.

    A super spike is coming from a global oil shortage!

    Peak oil is back..and this time it will break the world economy..

    MM, I am not ‘invincible’. I am prepared. I am not a coward waiting to off myself at the first sign of pain. At least twice in my lifetime, I have come close to being killed. Death doesn’t scare me. We all experience it eventually.

    I am only saying that I got out of the ‘frog pot’ and am watching the other frogs slowly cook because they would not/will not listen. That includes most of my family. They have all been invited to come and live here with me, but they may never do so. We shall see.

    I chose a better place than the Us to live out my life. I no longer can freeze to death. 70s to 80s most days. Never cooler than the 50s. Seldom warmer than the low 90s. I can grow much more food than I will ever need. My neighbors are all self sufficient and nice, friendly people. The country is growing, not dying like the Us. Etc.

    I am prepared for the future as much as one can ever be. Did that happen by accident? No. It happened by a lot of thought, planning, and hard work over 10 years. I earned my security.

    Global warming could be far worse than predicted, new study suggests

    Mm, where would YOU rather be? Ground Zero in Hiroshima or 8,000 miles away? Denial does not change the fact that you live in Ground Zero when the financial/civil war bomb drops in the Us. I live 8,000 miles away. Who will be hurt the most? Answer: Not me. LMAO

    The few who understand the system will either be so interested in its profits or be so dependent upon its favours that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of people, mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system, will bear its burdens without complaint, and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.” – The Rothschild brothers of London writing to associates in New York, 1863.

    “Cloggie and Boat both live in delusions of their own making. I don’t see any commercial planes flying in 20 years.”

    I never said I subscribe to the view of Airbus (doubling number of airplanes until 2038, albeit smaller ones), let alone if this would be a desirable development. It isn’t. We need mass air-travel like the plague. It brings far too many people to places where they don’t belong. Cities like Venice and Amsterdam are drowning in tourists:

    …and it is getting worse every year.

    The only point I want to make is that I do not believe in millimind’s zombie apocalyps, with “billions dying”, triggered by massive and permanent shortages of energy, in whatever form.

    What I do see coming is a large increase in the oilprice…

    …halting demand for oil in its tracks and providing an enormous boost for renewable energy, exactly what you want to see happening.

    The contradiction between peak-oil supply and peak-oil demand is artificial, in fact they are inseparable twins. The peak conventional oil story was largely true, but made mostly irrelevant because of the presence of enormous but messy reserves of carbons, that can be exploited with new technologies (fracking, UCG, perhaps methane ice and others). There is more than enough to fuel a quadruppling of air traffic in the coming 20 years, God forbid.

    your english is much better then mine so no point for me to write more you said it all

    Print…English is a bitch to learn and many native speakers never learn correct English and grammar. I had a good public education when that was possible in the Us, (50s & 60s) but today it is almost impossible.

    Yes, all an American has to do is look with an open mind to see the proof of my assertion that the Us is slipping into the 3rd world and fast. Democracy is dead. Rule of law is dead for the serfs. Freedoms are hanging by a thread. And on and on. Not a good place to be now.

    At school I had to learn English, French and German, apart obviously from Dutch. English is by far the easiest to learn, it is efficient, brief, economical, rational. German I only learned to appreciate later in life, it is deeper, “heavier”, manlier. French is the most elegant of the three, German the least. French is basically feminine. Although I can read complex French books (with heavy use of dictionaries, like a biography of Talleyrand and memoires of de Gaulle) I never managed to become fluent in it, unlike English and German. I even navigated myself in an embarrassing situation while working for IBM-Peugeot in a Paris, where I had 7 French IT-architects forced to talk in English, as if their command of English was a huge improvement as compared to my command of understanding rapidly spoken

    I think that English is here to stay as global lingua franca, even after the demise of the US empire, just like Latin was and is taught, 1600 years after the demise of the Roman empire.
