Iran's Rouhani Threatens Top Waterways Safety If US Halts Oil Exports
[AAWSAT] If Iran's oil exports are cut to zero, international waterways will not have the same security as before, its "moderate™" president said on Wednesday, cautioning Washington against upping pressure on Tehran in an angry confrontation between the longtime foes.
"Give us what we want or we'll do something vicious and stupid."
The comment by President Hassan Rouhani coincided with a remark by Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif that Tehran might act "unpredictably" in response to "unpredictable" US policies under President Donald Trump
...New York real estate developer, described by Dems as illiterate, racist, misogynistic, and what ever other unpleasant descriptions they can think of, elected by the rest of us as 45th President of the United States...
"World powers know that in the case that oil is completely sanctioned and Iran's oil exports are brought down to zero, international waterways can't have the same security as before," Rouhani said while meeting Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, according to Khamenei's official website.

"So unilateral pressure against Iran
...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet militias to extend the regime's influence. The word Iran is a cognate form of Aryan, the abbreviation IRGC is a cognate form of Stürmabteilung (or SA), the term Supreme Guide is a cognate form of either Shah or Führer or maybe both, and they hate Jews Zionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol...
can't be to their advantage and won't guarantee their security in the region and the world."

Tensions between Tehran and Washington have risen since Trump's administration last year quit an international deal to curb Iran´s nuclear ambitions and began to ratchet up sanctions. Iranian officials have denounced the new penalties as "economic warfare".
