Chris Hedges: War With Iran — Rise Up Times

Chris Hedges from Rise Up Times, with information and analysis on this latest monstrous mistake the US is stepping into.


“A war with Iran would see it use its Chinese-supplied anti-ship missiles, mines and coastal artillery to shut down the Strait of Hormuz, which is the corridor for 20% of the world’s oil supply. Oil prices would double, perhaps triple, devastating the global economy.”

  1. Gas has already increased 25 cents a gallon here.

  2. I think there are many ways to argue that this was a dumb act, but I don’t think oil is one of them. Maybe that’s me with a European hat on.

      I was talking with my grown sons and their partners yesterday. They think our POTUS is trying to get war mayhem started so by the time elections come in November he can declare a national emergency and stay in office indefinitely. I am not informed enough to know what’s going on, but whatever drives it isn’t good for the planet or the people on it.

      1. That wouldn’t surprise me. But I don’t see any kind of “war”, as we know it, with Iran. A guerilla war, maybe. Cities in the West are soft targets and, I guess, easy enough for one or two Iranians to get across to. They are probably already in place.

    Nothing good will come of it. NYC is on high alert. But you can’t protect everything. (K)
