Iran Threatening War

Iran is now threatening that if the EU imposes economic sanctions that they will use force to close down oil exports out of the Persian Gulf. This would be an overt act of war. Not only would the U.S. responds with military action, but the Europeans as well. Yes, even the French.

Via Jihad Watch this from Haaretz:

The news site, affiliated with the radical student movement in which President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was once a member, quoted Mohammed-Nabi Rudaki, deputy chairman of the Iranian parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission.

According to the report, Rudaki said that "if Europe does not act wisely with the Iranian nuclear portfolio and it is referred to the UN Security Council and economic or air travel restrictions are imposed unjustly, we have the power to halt oil supply to the last drop from the shores of the Persian Gulf via the Straits of Hormuz."
