#1 Before Persian or Arab, Sunni or Shia there was the Souk. The Souk always wins.

#2 It would cost Iran greatly as they are discounting and these middlemen would be charging much for their services.

#3 Won't stop the flow of oil. Will make it more costly and cut into profits. Which may make them export more volume. Which could decrease price until a less desperate seller cuts back production. Which cuts profits more...

#5 I understand Iran is due to run out of oil soon in the current wells, and because of the boycott they can neither do a proper geological survey nor acquire the equipment to drill. Plus that whole beow-replacement demographic thingy...

The intersection between present and future is not a pleasant place for the intelligent among Iran's rulers.

Statistically speaking, at least of few of them ought to be naturally intelligent, Redneck Jim.
