Iran Calls For Oil Embargo

An Iranian military commander called for all Islamic oil producing countries to cut oil exports to countries that support Israel in its current conflict with radical Islamic terrorists. This is an attempt at economic terrorism where the oil producers will cut the amount of oil they sell to those of us on the right side of this issue in hopes that it will scare us into helping them out or stopping our support for Israel.

The problem is that these countries, particularly Iran, need the money that comes from selling oil. The Iranian economy is in a mess and they will be in worse shape if they cannot sell as much oil. Of course, the call for the embargo is designed to be threatening so maybe we should issue a few threats of our own.

I doubt that most oil producing countries would go along. Saudi Arabia is a (sort-of) ally of ours and other countries would just as soon not have their economies interrupted because of the stupidity of Hamas. But, if they did we could retaliate by refusing to sell them food and medical supplies that they need. We could ensure that enough nations that produce these things decide not to sell them to any country that cuts oil exports. Then we could tell them we will sink their tankers or commandeer them. We could make life miserable for them and we could make it easier on us by having Iraq start to repay the debt they owe us in oil.

We should have an endless supply from them for what we did.

As for the military commander, he is talking out his other end because the oil producers of Islam know they need the money.

They also know America provides a lot of money in foreign aid to many countries and we could certainly cut that off. Economic arm twisting is a two way street but I imagine Iran’s military guy had not thought of that.

One dimensional thinking seems to the the hallmark of these people.
