    Have you any idea how disruptive to the world Oil Market that would be, bearing in mind Iran would surely retaliate with strikes against the Gulf's other major fields. That is without even considering the negative effect on Global Warming as this would surely exceed Iran's Carbon allowance? Also the Torah prohibits such destruction as a tactic of war.(notably for trees). The Jewish legal tradition takes this to be a paradigm for any act of despoliation, in peacetime as well as in war. The [Talmud] quotes Rabbi Joseph, who avers that Rabbi, [Rabbi Judah the Prince], redactor of the Mishnah, thereby intended a broader principle, which Rabbi Joseph phrases as: "One should not spill water out of his pool at a time when others need it," i.e., one should never spoil an object or an opportunity, even where the gain or loss refers completely to another individual, and not to himself. I guess you'll have to get your kicks some other way. Throw a brick through your neighbours window?
