Saudi crown prince: War with Iran will collapse global economy

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MbS) warned in an interview with the CBS 60 Minutes program that a military confrontation with Iran would cause crude prices to spike to “unimaginably high numbers.” He added he would prefer a political and peaceful solution to the military one. “The region represents about 30 percent of the world’s energy supplies, about 20 percent of global trade passages, about 4 percent of the world GDP product,” the crown prince said. “Imagine all of these three things stopping. He urged the world to take “strong and firm action to deter Iran” adding that he agreed with US Secretary Mike Pompeo’s conclusion that the attack on the kingdom’s oil facilities was an act of war by Iran.

      its my guess too, that the globalists take the chance and allow iran to start a war in the ME – planning to increase their power after that war….
      Why else on earth does the west allow its tankers being attacked, hijacked / drones shot down / oil industry attacked + severly crippled ? I guess those western leaders are part of the globalists/ new world order – rulers, eager to take total control…

        one neuron at work….

        Have the US and its vetted First World allies control the oil fields of the Third World ME and LOWER the price of oil back to $10. Cheap energy benefits the ENTIRE WORLD, well except for OPEC and its lackys.

      A war would collapse the Saudi monarchy. You can buy all the latest US weapons, but if your people won’t fight for you, you’re gonna lose.

    Bin Salman will do and say what he is told, otherwise he’ll have an accident when he next travels somewhere or chokes on his next meal of scorpions (optionally Locusts) and fries…

    There is a word for his actions: coward

    Plain and simple, . . . he has the “good life” and will not do anything he knows will jeopardize his position or situation. He will appease until the Persians tunnel under his wall and slaughter him just like they did Belshazzar 3500 years ago.

    The writing was on the wall then, . . . is once again.

    Iran has a very simple weapon to destroy Arab regimes and American Oil superiority. Any guesses? The Oil Nuclear Bomb! How? FREE Oil to anyone and everyone until sanctions are lifted!!!!!
    Come and fill up your oil tankers for FREE!!!!!!! Hahaha That would collapse the Arab oil regimes when oil prices drop to nothing! LOL… That should bring Trump and Arabs down to their knees, the Oil companies will go bankrupt, the banks that finance those projects will be defaulted and will go bankrupt and the stocks will tumble overnight! They will all beg to lift sanctions!

      would not work. cost of production is high, they could not give it away, their economy and infrastructure would collapse before it made a dent on the world. cost of production varies between 9 and 45 $ a barrel, don’t know where iran falls in that scale.
