TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran will not rule out using oil as a weapon if the United States resorts to military action against the Islamic Republic over its nuclear program, an Iranian oil official said in remarks published on Tuesday.
"When the Americans say that military action in regard to the nuclear issue has not been put aside, Iran can also say that it will not put aside oil as a tool," Iran's OPEC governor, Hossein Kazempour Ardebili, told Iran's Sharq newspaper.
What, this is supposed to shock and surprise us? They've already threatened (countless times) to wipe Israel off the map with the nukes that they deny they're building. This begs two questions: How stupid do they think we are? And, more importantly, how stupid are we?
