Oil prices climbed sharply Tuesday after the Pentagon said Iran launched more than a dozen ballistic missiles against US bases in Iraq.

The apparent retaliation for last week's US drone stroke against a senior Iranian commander amplifies concern about a spiraling tit-for-tat conflict between the United States and Iran.

US crude jumped more than 4% to over $65 a barrel Tuesday evening after US officials said Iran launched more than a dozen missiles that targeted at least two bases hosting American military personnel. Crude, which settled at $62.70 a barrel during regular trading Tuesday, climbed as high as $65.48 a barrel.


Significantly, the attack was claimed by Iran itself, not one of the nation's various proxy groups in the region. And the Pentagon said that Iran used ballistic missiles from inside Iraq, indicating a significant escalation.

"It comes as no surprise that there has been a reprisal from Iran -- the concern is that this is just the sign of things to come," said Matt Smith, director of commodity research at ClipperData.

President Donald Trump, who has previously visited one of the airbases targeted, has been briefed on the rocket attacks. The Pentagon said it is "working on initial battle damage assessments" and will "take all necessary measures to protect and defense" US personnel and allies in the region.

Trump has previously vowed to hit back at Iran if it retaliated for the US drone strike that killed Qasem Soleimani, the head of the IRGC Quds Force.

Investors are on high alert for any signs of a clash between the United States and Iran that threatens oil supplies in the Middle East. Crude prices retreated earlier this week on hopes that energy supplies won't be impacted by the tensions.

A spike in oil prices could deal a blow to the world economy, which is already struggling from weak manufacturing activity. Dow (INDU) futures tumbled more than 300 points, or 1.2%, late Wednesday.

Iran means business. These western colonialists can't bully everyone to submission. Someone needs to stand shoulder to shoulder with them. At least, Iran has shown the world that it is not a coward.

Omo akin to kii sa loju ogun.

Modified.

To those unhappy lads quoting me:

Iran is no match to US. No doubt. Iran has done what other nations dare not to do including Russia and China. Bombing US bases means "You are not untouchable. We can hit you, we can cause damages". That is a big actinable statement.

Don't go down the drain like a sissy without giving a good fight. Omo akin kii sojo

Oil stock investors would be smiling.
Some people actually benefit in what others call bad times.
Warfare Weapons manufacturers, military equipment contractors and manufacturers, medical aid suppliers of humanitarian organizations etc.

All in the midst of losses of precious lives.
USA is miles heavier than Iran but they would suffer their own losses too if there should be war. No amount of heroic recognition and posthumous awards will truly reward or makeup the wounds of a slewn family member in any military base.

Let peace reign. We can do without war.

It is amazing how war analysts on NL thinks it is wrong for the US to kill a man who has killed many US citizens and also planning to kill more
is his life more precious than anyone's
without concrete evidences against him, you all think US will just kill him just for fun?

You all need to stop siding with evil
