It is absolutely an Israeli monopoly. Israel cannot supply the oil to keep the wick wet.These large economies rely on Iranian oil. I cant believe you couldn't see this coming years ago. Tourism, Information technology, Weapons Industry don't quite power big rigs, cars, ships and planes yet. Oh unless someone told them that Israel lacks a nuclear capability(your favorite bed buddies?) I wouldn't worry about them acquiring nuclear weapons there are plenty of other nations that carry the same view of Israel even on the down low.(wiping Israel of the map) Israel is the great trophy and a very valuable piece of real estate. The world view of Iran has changed dramatically, as global economic woes give them much more power. EU will never boycott Iranian energy resources in these harsh economic times. Who is willing to sanction Iranian oil? And further more how will you accomplish such a feat? A naval blockade of the Straight Of Hormuz? In this times a weapons test is needed in the Negev. Because everyone needs to know now. Since everyone has become thine enemy. Who cares what the UN has to say about it at this point. Its OK to say we got that mutha***** to the world now. That's why the Iranians are so brave as of late. Someone is exposing your vulnerabilities.
