    i wonder how this is playing in Saudi Arabia?[/QUOTE]

    Well for starters, some of the more wealthy Arabs probably have to change their weekend plans...maybe stay at home and abuse one of the Philipino workers instead of going to Bahrain and get some elbow.
    i don't know...maybe the royal family is getting nervous.

    Understatement of the century.

    Only difference with Saudi Arabia, is their forces are much more effective, and will deal a deadly blow to whoever dares stand against the current state. I'd put money on the fact they're already tracking down potential Trouble Makers within their country.

    You type this like you have experience with getting some elbow.

    I wouldn't be surprised if our War on Terror dollars and technology are being put to that very use.

    Absolutely! But I am called a conspiracist on another thread for suggesting the like.

    You're probably correct in that, oh what a tangled web we weave, when we won't drill our own.

    We haven't had that capacity since 1971. What's too bad is that we sat on our asses for forty years after we passed peak oil in this country.

    Great, do it. However, that technology is years, maybe decades off in the future. What now?

    Peak oil is a myth. You can't say that we have peaked when you put off limits the known oil in the first place. It is a man made shortage.
