Rouhani: Iran discovers huge new oil field

Iran’s president Hassan Rouhani disclosed on Sunday the discovery of a new field with an estimated 50 billion barrels of oil in the southern province of Khuzestan. He said this find would boost Iran’s proven reserves by a third. DEBKAfile: The discovery will have little effect on Iran’s desperate economic crisis nor would it affect world markets where there is a glut on oil. Even if Tehran could procure the necessary equipment, developing the new oil field would take years.

    All Ayatoolas can DROWN in that oil. The West will REFINE that oil, filter out their turbans, and make useful products from $10 per barrel oil.

      All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity.

      Hebrew h.o_ri_m occurs 13 times in the Old Testament… In all of these instances the English Authorised Bible has ‘nobles’ and in most cases we clearly have to do with dignitaries of some sort (e.g. the ‘nobles and rulers’, ha-h.o_ri_m we-ham-mega_ni_m, in Neh. 2,4,4,5,7)… For Arabic h.urr the dictionaries give (1) ‘free’; (2) ‘liberal, generous, frank, etc.’; (3) ‘noble’.. Ancient South Arabian has h.r, plural, ‘h.rr, feminine plural, ‘h.rrt, ‘freeman/woman’… then the special development represented by Geez h.ar(r)a_wi_, ‘soldier’, and h.ar(r)a_, ‘troops’, which do not seem to have left any traces in the modern Ethiopic languages.” (Francois de Blois, ‘Freemen’ and ‘Nobles’ in Iranian and Semitic Languages, JRAS, 1985, No. 1).

    Such a Discovery No Longer Matters since Iran Chooses To Weaponize Shiia Hate to Spill more Blood Feuds over 632 CE in the Mideast not Benefiting any Iranians. The Iran Shiia Regime is a Danger Iran & Mideast People in the Name of Devastation not Salvation!

    Just invade Iran and take away their oil and destroy their nuclear sites.
    Transfer money made by oil sales to Israel in order to buy more merkava tanks,
    so the soldiers have more than enough tanks to play with.
    Also invest in better caravans in Shomron
    Some are really shaking when the washing machine is on.

    Nah, that oil is by far too Iranian to be sold, there is no point in extracting it.
    Keep up the good sanctions, even better: tight them more!
