Nope. OPEC makes more money on tourism than oil now. So technology will change when the resource runs dry. However, OPEC will fight and that's what we are seeing now.

Iran is planning to charge foreign ships a toll in exchange for "protection" across the Strait of Hormuz, a key trade route and a flashpoint in the escalating dispute between the United States and the Islamic Republic.

A member of the Iranian Parliament's presidium said foreign commercial entities should compensate Iran as "the true provider of security in the region and international waters,". Amirhossein Qazizadeh Hashemi claimed ships enter Iranian waters on their way through the strait and should therefore pay a toll.

Amirhossein Qazizadeh Hashemi claimed ships enter Iranian waters on their way through the strait and should therefore pay a toll.


The Strait of Hormuz is a narrow, 21-mile waterway linking the Persian Gulf to the Gulf of Oman and greater Arabian Sea. About 18.5 million barrels of oil travel through the strait each day, accounting for 30% of the world's sea-traded oil. The waterway is considered crucial to global trade, but with a shipping lane only three miles long, it is also extremely vulnerable.
 Quoting: Cheering for Iran 2298248


The Toll is the SUB'S!
 Quoting: Q33


Missing the point again. smh

Iran wants a piece of the jizya that Saudi has been taking exclusively for decades.

Saudi Jabbas have scammed their own region over wealth distribution and now Iran feels bold enough to stand up and demand their share.

JIZYA

jizya is a tax on the infidel who is in Islamic lands. Legal under their LAW.

So technically, Iran can charge this tax by international standards.
Sure it's Mafia tactics (Muslims steal all concepts from other cultures and twist it to deviant application).

Look at this from Islamic point of view, this is not a declaration of WAR, it is enforcing local LAW.
 Quoting: MissCleo



No, its not Jizya, its only a plain toll for using the waterway, fair and square. Even Arab, Paki, Indian, and other Muslims have to pay it. Its not for any religion specifically.

Since you are our partly Aryan brothers & sisters, we may give you a 10% discount.
