    Again, with what are you going to attack with? Please tell me. What soldiers are you going to use? If you aren't going to use soldiers, since we don't have any to spare, what is an air strike going to accomplish, other than more global anamosity, a doubling of oil prices, and a more nationalistic Iranian population?

    Please tell me.

    Oil is traded on a market which therefore has it's price set by speculators. Oil companies don't set the price of oil. It's part supply, part demand, and mostly speculation.

    Here's a chart that will show you cost per barrel of oil, versus cost per gallon of gasoline with respect to history.

    There is a quote from me, and a reply from reflex in there, so I'm not sure who you are asking.

    tell you what... why don't guys like YOU go invade iran... only, do it under a different name... perhaps United Imperialists or some such fitting federation...

    you clearly don't have a clue how many U.S. servicemen will lose their lives in a sucker punch on Iran, do you? will make Iraq look like Greneda... it's totally unnecessary to get involved with such a conflict until they do something profound and undeniable... this policy of "pre-emption" can't just have our "leaders" going around labelling everyone as a threat on cherry-picked "evidence"

Yes that fits right in width Bush rattaling his saber, the speculators [MAY ALLAH GIVE THEM BONE CANCER] automaticaly raise the price, weather it's a real threat or not ,than others big oil, start raiseing their prices on the speculation that the crude oil supply may become interupted. Even though it's already in the pipeline and payed for.
