Who Would Win In A Saudi Arabia vs. Iran Showdown?

With the growing tensions in the Persian Gulf after the Saudi embassy in Tehran was stormed and set on fire in the wake of Saudi Arabia’s execution of a Shia cleric, Americans ought to take notice. Five of the top seven oil producing nations are in the region of the Persian Gulf. So, even though fracking has helped increase American oil reserves to a 42-year high, things could get rocky if Iran and Saudi Arabia go to war.

How bad could it get?

    If you want a flood of Muslim “refugees” to invade the West then an all out conflict would be a great thing, and I suppose Allah approved.

    The question isn’t who would win, but who would lose. And the answer, inshallah, is that both Saudi Arabia & Iran are the losers. As for the oil, it will flow as long as there is demand.

      We would, see comment above re refugees.

      We have the technology to drill for oil through glass.

  • This article leaves out one significant quasi military factor. Islam (both Shia and Sunni) encourages all devout Muslims to be self-initiating in their use of force to deal with perceived threats. It is called jihad. And jihad can be used by Shias to kill Sunnis and visa versa.

    The Saudi (Sunni majority) oil pipelines run through Shia controlled parts of Saudi Arabia.

    One spark and expect a big ugly mess and world oil supply disruption.

    Iran would win. They’re backed by both the US and Russia.

    Losers both…and lots of dead mooslims….

    May both sides win.

  • Justin St.Denis

    Muslims can be melted. Both sides would do their best to demonstrate this.

    Obama would have to fight on the side of Iran to protect them from having to use their nukes.

  • Ron MacDonald

    It will take at least five years for Iran to recover from past sanctions, its military is obsolete while Saudi Arabia’s military is modern. Iran’s other problem is that it could easily fall from within so it would have to keep forces in reserve to prevent that from happening.

    I think the winner would be the Canadian economy as it would push up the price of oil.

    Who cares………… As long as they fight hard and long with max casualties.
