Iran says it may close a vital oil-trade route if the West imposes more sanctions over its controversial nuclear programme.

Vice-President Mohammad Reza Rahimi warned that "not a drop of oil will pass through the Strait of Hormuz" if sanctions are widened.

Iran's navy chief Admiral Habibollah Sayari later said closing the strait would be "easy".

The US and its allies believe Iran is trying to develop a nuclear weapon.

Tehran insists its nuclear programme is for peaceful purposes.

The Strait of Hormuz links the Gulf - and the oil-producing states of Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) - to the Indian Ocean. About 40% of the world's tanker-borne oil passes through it.

The blockade would be a response towards the sanctions they recently unveiled. In that sense I guess they brought it on themselves. I'm not really sure anything is justified when it comes to Iran...

I say let them develop their nukes. If they decide to use one, then that'll give us the excuse to drop 50 nukes on their country and turn it into a piece of glass, then we wont have to worry about them ever again.
That way everybody wins!

Very good. Things like this often force big oil consuming countries to develop alternative energy sources. This is actually one of the biggests fears of the oil exporting countries. Just look what happened with the mid 80s oil shock.

Yeah I guess you can say [oil pun] has quite some [oil pun] regarding the whole [oil pun].

They can't sell us, we were annexed, so technically they don't own us, we can leave at any time.

Update:

'US warns Iran over threat to block oil route'

The US Navy has said it will not tolerate disruption to a vital oil-trade route, following an Iranian threat to close it.

Iran warned it would shut the Strait of Hormuz if the West imposed more sanctions over its nuclear programme.

The US and its allies believe Iran is trying to develop a nuclear weapon - a charge Tehran denies.

Reacting to Iran's warning, a US Fifth Fleet spokeswoman said it was "always ready to counter malevolent actions".

And I'm already spending $60 a week on gas...

I say we take our chances with the nukes. I'd rather be at the risk of nuclear war than pay any more for gas than I already am.

I hope they block it and when doing so they get accidentally trigger happy and shoot one of our convoys or something so we can finally just get in there and shred that place.
