Iran's Powerful Hardline Cleric Threatens To “Instantly” Create $400 Oil By Seizing Tankers
Stock Talk JournalD ^ | 11-4-2018

Posted on 11/04/2018 6:35:41 PM PST by blam

Just ahead of U.S. sanctions on Iran set to snap back on Monday targeting primarily the energy, shipbuilding, shipping, and banking sectors, Iran’s most prominent conservative cleric has announced that if oil exports are halted, Saudi tankers will be confiscated and Gulf countries attacked.

Powerful Shia cleric Ayatollah Ahmad Alamolhoda is the Friday Prayer leader in Mashhad, considered Iran’s spiritual capital and among the holiest places in Shia Islam, and sits on the government’s “Assembly of Experts” but has no formal government role or decision-making ability. However, he’s a powerful leader and chief spiritual force behind Iran’s conservative faction who has long been at odds with President Hassan Rouhani.

Iranian opposition sources report that Alamolhoda told his followers during his Friday prayer sermon:

If we reach a point that our oil is not exported, the Strait of Hormuz will be mined. Saudi oil tankers will be seized and regional countries will be leveled with Iranian missiles.

The cleric is further reported to have declared that Iran has the power to “instantly” create conditions for $400 a barrel oil prices if it decides to act in the Persian Gulf.

He said as reported in regional opposition media:

If Iran decides, a single drop of this region’s oil will not be exported and in 90 minutes all Persian Gulf countries will be destroyed. The UAE and Saudi Arabia will be destroyed in 60 minutes. After 90 minutes the U.S. will have nothing in this country. And we haven’t even started with Israel. Beware of the day we go after Israel, too. That’s why they want us to round up our missiles.

I’m sure those moves are anticipated and the Iranians will be in for a big surprise if they attempt anything.

The people running Saudi Arabia are scum, but not as bad as the ones running Iran. The Saudis would level Iran in about a few months. That’s even without our help. With our help, it would take about a week. This mullah is an idiot.

And the US is the world’s #1 exporter?
What would we do with all that money? And how can we help Iran do this?

You have fun with that.......
The United States likely surpassed Russia and Saudi Arabia to become the world’s largest crude oil producer earlier this year, based on preliminary estimates in EIA’s Short-Term Energy Outlook (STEO). In February, U.S. crude oil production exceeded that of Saudi Arabia for the first time in more than two decades.

Good thing Trump has pushed so hard for energy independence and we are close to being self sufficient with plenty of mothballed oil wells waiting for the call to rapidly ramp up domestic production to meet a surge in demand

Iran will self destruct trying to skyrocket oil prices in much the same way the Saudi failed plan to kill our domestic oil industry by dropping prices backfired on them

The Saudis would level Iran in about a few months.

Iran population outnumbers that of Saudi Arabia by a ratio of 5:2.

Oh yeah, you idiotic mullah, the day you touch Israel is the day you meet the real power of Yeshua (the real God, not the demon you whoreship - misspelling intentional - who you call Allah but whose real name is Azazael.) Although God may sit that fight out because Israel plus the US under President Trump would glass your s***hole of a country at once. Wouldn’t take even a week.

The Saudis are one of the largest purchasers of US military equipment and training. Not sure I like that, but it’s a fact. The applicable military term is “force multiplier.” It would not even be close.
