    I'll guar-an-damn-tee China would buy every barrel Iran wants to sell at the right price.

    Iran doesn't want to find out what would happen if they tried to close the strait.

    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    Don't the Chinese have a pipeline from Iran?

    Hey! Turns out you are right. But there is a surprise:

    Here's Iran's output:
    As of 2009 it was producing an estimated 4.172 million barrels per day

    The problem being how they get it to China, of course.

    And here's China's use:


    So, right you are that China will use everything Iran's got, and it looks like that only fulfills about half China's need. But. no one is worried. Least of all Obama, who has recently figured out a way to encourage Canada (America's largest supplier) to sell oil to China.:D

    Iran knows they have less than a year to get all this figured out, too. Hopefully, the narcissistic Obama will no longer be standing in The Oval Office admiring himself in the mirror. He will be history. Picture on the wall, that's all.:D

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
