Therefore, I have to assume that there are people who want a large scale conflict in the world. Aren't constant wars one of the signatures of a society in decline?

    I think israel should fight it's own battles, the U.S. should take care of the economy at home.

    Yes, israel has certainly played a negative role in oil prices. Next time you go pay at the pump, remember that..everyone should.

    How would China launch a 'proxy' war against the US in the region, which really means launching a proxy war against our Gulf allies, whom are their largest energy partners (they have been divesting their Iranian import contracts btw), and with what resources and what 'proxies'? Furthermore that is not how the treasury debt situation works. 'Calling in' the treasury debt is not only not really possible, it would be catastrophic to China which trades in foreign currency reserves, and for a multitude of other reasons.

    Sure, and if we are removing moral equivalency from the argument then its fair to say that an Iranian nuclear weapon is inimical to US interests and we should prevent it from coming to pass. Having an Iranian bomb is not a positive thing for the region, or for the US. Nor is it positive for the world as far as the expansion and potential pressures of proliferation.

    Your a smart man, and i am positive that you already know. But i will waste my time, and reply.

    Israel is beating the drum's of war, in the energy rich part of the world. That tends to have a negative affect on oil prices.

    We can go into further details, but you already know the rest. Your entrenched support for israel, tends to effect the accuracy of your posts, and frankly i think that's a shame.

    If that's the case wouldn't every single power that has been increasing the tension and pressure on Iran be responsible? Also the volatility of the futures market (and I oppose heaping this blame on speculators btw) in recent years has had much less to do with Israel than it has had to do with US/GCC relations with Iran. At least as far as that region of the world is concerned. There is oil and natural gas outside the Middle East and market pressures outside of security concerns, which we seem to be quick to forget.
