Good News, this oil money would not have been used for Iranians anyways

Less Money for Terrorists and Koor-o Katchals around the world (Assad, Palestinians, Hezbolah, Hamas, Basij, Sudan, ...) Also less money to spread Arab Islam (build useless Masjids, ....)

The bloody substance makes the government independent of the people as tax in such an economy becomes irrelevant. Reduced oil export may make life of ordinary people difficult but it weakens the the regime even more by denying it its main source of finance.


I celebrate any reduction of Iranian oil export...

Oil has proven to be a cursing treasure for those nations who do not have the wisdom to use or manage it right.  Iranian oil has certainly been a curse for our nation by


1-    Super powers grip of our nation


2-    Looting Iranian wealth by our corrupt leaders (100 fold worse than the previous regime)


Perhaps with this, our people will finally get forced to rely on their own and less on this black curse



'Hambastegi' is the main key to victory
