Oil Threats

How much oil do we get from Iran? Zero. Here's a chart. They would ruin their own economy if they stopped production.


Iran's threats mean nothing to us. When Iraq lost oil production, the world didn't fold. Our concern is that we should not let Iran--who abuses it's neighbors and doesn't know the meaning of human rights--obtain a nuclear weapon. They would have no problem wiping Isreal off the face of the earth because that's what they have stated should be done. I guess the U.S. will just have to be the big 'bully' again and keep that from happening. In fact, I hope Iraq becomes so stable that they are able to have nuclear weapons. That would keep their neighbors on their best behavior.
