    Iran as such isn't the real problem or cause for concern. Starting a war in that region would be disastrous and make the trade war insignificant by comparison.

    Fine threads have two main advantages.

    1. More resistant to loosening from vibration is probably the most relevant one.

    Wasn't 9/11 in fact Saudi Arabians? Bin Laden was a Saudi. Also Iraq was blamed for 9/11.

    Why do you think Iran would be even slightly interested in a "conflict" with the USA?

    Imagine if the USA felt it was being pushed around. Iran with nuclear weapons is a bad thought but apart from...

    Iraq? Why air strikes in Iraq? It's Iran.

    In a military conflict where oil producing countries are involved I'd like to know when that ever resulted in falling oil prices.

    Sadly you are probably correct. This raises the question that won't be asked.

    Who will profit big time if oil prices go up?

    Hmmm yes and no. I know many that look carefully at the price and just as many that don't if it's something they really want. Once in China I asked why so many bought a large, expensive car and...

    Is it really so complicated? If you don't like Chinese (or any other country) then don't buy it. Some seem to want to do so yet nobody wonders why.
