Tehran Iran: Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei announced today that a state of war exists between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. King Abdullah could not be reached for comment.
Saudi Arabian environmentalists have convinced the United Nations (UN) that the major cause of global warming is Iranian heavy sour crude oil, which is high in Sulfur content. They say "Saudi Arabian light sweet and medium crude oils are much better for the environment and the Iranian stuff should be banned." The UN agreed and passed a resolution.
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, over US objections, has hired the Iraqi armed forces. The world price of crude oil has dropped sharply amidst this war news and rumors that Israeli scientists have figured out how to turn sand into crude oil.
