Top 10 Key Outcomes From War With Iran That Few Are Talking About

Lately we‚Äôve been hearing¬†about when the inevitable war with Iran will begin.¬† However, what is not widely reported is the type of consequences we‚Äôll be dealing with after that war starts.¬† A huge part of prepping your¬†SHTF¬†plan¬†is taking the time to think ahead a few steps to what is likely to occur.¬† Below are several consequences from an Iranian war that could impact your SHTF plan.
1.¬†Lack of Help from Europe
The recession in Europe has been widely publicized in the mainstream media.¬† However, if war starts with Iran, how willing do you think these¬†European nations will be to send troops to assist?¬† There is cost associated with that and many may not be in the position to incur that cost.¬† In addition, Iran supplies a great deal of oil to the countries in Europe.¬† Do you think Iran¬†will continue to ship oil¬†to countries that have committed troops to fight against them?
2. Drop In Travel
The likelihood that terrorist attacks would increase in a war time scenario is high.¬† Therefore, travel to vacation destinations would become very dangerous.¬† That, in turn, would negatively impact tourism for many countries that rely on it.¬† In addition, the high gas prices will deter people from traveling ‚Äď which is¬†being seen already.
3. Gas Prices Rise (But More Than You Think)
OK, this one is pretty obvious.¬† However, one consequence would be even higher gas¬†prices than anticipated for a relatively obscure reason.¬† If you noticed during the spikes of the past, the difference between regular and premium gas had huge¬†variations.¬† This is due to more folks moving from premium to regular for cost reasons.¬† That builds more uncertainty on the¬†demand for premium.¬† The gas stations then need to price it more conservatively (higher) to ensure that swings in the market don‚Äôt have them selling at a loss.
When prices begin to soar, folks will look to reduce the amount of driving they do and thus drive the demand for gas down.¬† This will result in uncertain demand for stations and they will need to price regular conservatively (higher) to assure their profits.¬† In addition, the wild swings in the market will also mandate them to have a bigger cushion in their prices.¬† Result: Even higher prices than anticipated.
4. Terrorism At Home
Anti-American (and likely anti-Israeli) sentiment will be at an all-time high.¬† Iranian migrants (legal or illegal) will be watching their homeland ravaged.¬† The more radical ones may decide that enough is enough and take matters in their own hands here in the US.¬† Even radical Islamists could come to Iran‚Äôs aid by causing havoc on American soil.¬† Safety will become a huge concern and businesses will suffer from it.
5. Gold Rush
Quite a bit¬†has been written¬†about gold spiking in the event of war with Iran.¬† That spike in gold will result in even more demand for gold as folks will look to get their hands on it.¬† Unfortunately, that demand will result in increased crime against jewelers and individuals.¬† Indian-Americans will be targeted as they have a tradition of owning and wearing their gold.¬† In India, having and wearing gold is a sign of prosperity and, for many, a means of savings vs. keeping money in banks.¬† Thieves¬†will target them¬†in search of gold.
6. Who Steals Gas?
As gas prices climb, people will become more desparate to get it. It‚Äôs already started in some areas.¬† ‚ÄúPump and runs‚ÄĚ have been on the rise (where people pump their gas and leave without paying.¬† People¬†have been siphoning gas¬†from parked cars to get their hands on the gas.¬† Some have even taken to drilling holes in fuel tanks and draining it into a bucket.¬† Desparation will increase and with it, tensions.
7. Another Rebuilding?
Assuming the US is victorious in Iran, there will be expectations for us to rebuild the country.¬† Who will be paying for this rebuilding as we did in Iraq?¬† Yes, the US taxpayers will foot the bill.¬† During the rebuild, don‚Äôt be surprised if the waste is¬†similar to past efforts.
8. Inflation On Steroids
Many folks have been complaining about¬†the rising price of food¬†and other staples.¬† However, during an Iranian war and subsequent rise in gas prices, we can expect a serious spike in food prices.¬† Remember, gas is required to run the trucks that ship the food to the stores.¬† When that spikes, you will see things really get tough.
9. Crime On The Rise
Due to the items above, folks will be desparate to survive and feed their family.¬† People that would normally never¬†consider breaking the law¬†will have new incentive as¬†they¬†see their¬†families‚Äô struggling.¬† A desparate man is a dangerous thing.
10. And What If We Can‚Äôt Win?
Many just assume the US with Israel would win a war with Iran.¬† However, what if it becomes another Vietnam or Korea?¬† Who knows exactly what weapons¬†Russia and¬†China have sold to Iran.¬† Also, who knows how effective they will be against us.¬† What an unmitigated disaster it would be to be stuck in a long, drawn out war with a difficult opponent.¬† All this while 20% of the worlds‚Äô oil is not flowing.
A hot topic in the Republican debates has been being ‚Äútough‚ÄĚ on Iran.¬† I have to say I agree with Dr. Ron Paul on this one.¬† We‚Äôve already picked enough fights across the globe.¬†¬†It‚Äôs not the time for our nation to be the world police ‚Äď especially against an opponent with the resources of Iran.
By failing to¬†prepare, you are preparing to fail.
