First, let’s look at who would benefit from a war between the United States and Iran.
Oil corporations would be perhaps the very first ones to benefit. A war between the United States and Iran would mean that the price of oil in international markets would reach new heights and even break records. Oil exporter countries which are outside of the Middle East sphere (or countries which would be unaffected by a blockade at the Strait of Hormuz) would see significant profits.
Corrupt politicians bankrolled by big oil corporations would be getting more ‘campaign contributions’ due to much increased oil prices in the U.S.
Even though the United States is now a net oil exporter domestic oil prices will still be affected by the dynamics of international oil prices.
Israel would be one of the players expecting to benefit the most. They could ‘finally’ use all their weapons previously financed by U.S. taxpayers and take out their big rival in the region, Iran, putting them ever closer to taking over the whole of Syria and annexing its territory while exerting more control over the Middle East as a whole.
Saudi Arabia could be one of the biggest winners or losers of the war, no matter what the end result will be. Since Iran has prepared long ago for such a possible turn of events, they have the military capability (including submarines, long-range artillery, surface to sea missiles and specialized attack planes) to convert the Persian Gulf into a world of pain for the U.S. Navy and to Saudi oil tankers. Since Saudi Arabia has one of the biggest oil tanker fleet in the world, even damaging a single tanker would be an environmental catastrophe for the country.
On the other hand, if the U.S. defeated Iran, it is possible that Saudi Arabia would be able to exercise unrivaled control over the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz.
If the U.S. and its coalition could defeat Iran, Turkey with potential help from Israel would be able to annex the northern, rich-in-oil regions of Syria, fulfilling one of the deep desires of Erdogan.
A small part of the army of the Russian Federation, known as the Intelligence community would greatly profit from a new war. Russian intelligence could use different kinds of instruments to evaluate American equipment (including radar and detection systems) in combat or readied up against Iranian combat units.
Troop movements and tactics could be just as important, however will probably take a backseat to the previously mentioned systems, which will be closely analyzed by intelligence members, infantry generals and navy admirals.
Holders of physical Gold and Silver
Physical Gold and Silver is always seen as a ‘safe asset’ in times of uncertainty. Of course, physical gold and silver don’t pay any interest, however they have an unrivaled ability to store value.
> THOSE WHO STAND TO LOSE
Everybody who Owns a Business or a Vehicle
I’ve already described above skyrocketing oil prices. Most people, quite noticeably in the United States and Europe, are getting around by motor vehicles. For most people it is not a choice, but a must to own and maintain a car. Since the price of oil is included in every single purchasable product and its shipping, so probably business owners and avid on-line shoppers would the first people who would take a considerable hit. The more oil the business requires the greater the impact will be.
The Iranian people
The standard and way of life of the Iranian people would clearly be affected from Day Zero by an all-out war with the United States. No matter how big or small, old or young, the people will bee adversely affected.
The American People and Taxpayers
Next up on the list I should also mention American Taxpayers who are paying federal taxes and subsidies which will be used to finance and bankroll the war against Iran.
The American people will be the assured losers of this possible military engagement, since the U.S. has just about factually nothing to gain from a destroyed and occupied Iran. Some people may spread the unfounded claim that the government of the U.S. wants to keep the petro dollar alive and through that the Dollar hegemony. This argument however falls apart after analyzing the events which took place on April 19th, 2016, when China locked in the dollar’s death by in modern history launching the second price fix of gold through the Shanghai Gold Exchange. The only possible mean to keep the dollar hegemony system would be through WW3.
Iran could prove to be an especially hard nut to crack since the Iranian government decided 30 or so years ago to establish an extensive network of underground military bunkers, tunnels and other installations in order to boost the country’s defense potential against a possible attack from the United States.
This calling for war against Iran by the establishment and the media in the United States should be seen as a display of avid support for corruption and willingness to assist nations (like Saudi Arabia and Israel) which only drag the American people down. Israel, for instance, on multiple occasions displayed utter disrespect, distrust and exhibited unrestrained violence against American soldiers and sometimes the country went as far that the high echelons of that government decided to intentionally take American lives by utilizing all tools, even deadly ones, at their disposal.
The BRICS Alliance
The BRICS alliance (Brazil, Russia, Iran, China, and South Africa) would stand to loose one of their members, so we could realistically expect some help (funding, volunteers, mercenaries, military supply, foreign aid) from both the Russian Federation, and China.
Lastly, the Syrian government could lose a very crucial partner helping them to balance out the power of Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the United States in the region. Currently, 1/3 of Syria is currently under occupation by mercenaries funded by the United States. Mostly Syria’s northern parts are occupied which are famously rich in oil.
After Iran is destabilized the region would further be divided using the India-Pakistan artificial fault line and utilizing Iran and possibly even Afghanistan as a springboard into the southern regions of Russia in the future.
Terrorist organizations and groups funded by the CIA,Mossad, and Saudi Arabia could gain a considerable foothold in Iran and later in Afghanistan. What other terrorist organization would apologize? ISIS fighters ‘attacked Israel Defense Forces unit, then apologised’ Right, Arnon?
CIA operations, just as usual, would include arming, training and escorting (even supporting if necessary) these terrorist organizations in order to get the U.S. and its NATO allies into Russia, India, and China.
