    Have you not been paying attention what all the experts, including the oil companies have been telling us about the end of cheap oil?

    STRATEGIC ENERGY POLICY CHALLENGES
    FOR THE 21ST CENTU
    RY

    "Energy policy was allowed to drift by both political parties despite its centrality to America’s domestic economy and to our nation’s security. It was permitted to drift despite the fact that virtually every American recession since the late 1940s has been preceded by spikes in oil prices. The American people need to know about this situation and be told as well that there are no easy or quick solutions to today’s energy problems."

    "Strong economic growth across the globe and new global demands for more energy have meant the end of sustained surplus capacity in hydrocarbon fuels and the beginning of capacity limitations. In fact, the world is currently precariously close to utilizing all of its available global oil production capacity, raising the chances of an oil-supply crisis with more substantial consequences than seen in three decades."

    "As it is, national solutions alone cannot work. Politicians still speak of U.S. energy independence, while the United States is importing more than half of its oil supplies and may soon for the first time become reliant on sources outside North America for substantial amounts of natural gas. More flexible environmental regulation and opening of more federal lands to drilling might slow but cannot stop this process. Dependence is so incredibly large, and growing so inexorably, that national autonomy is simply not a viable goal. In the global economy, it may not even be a desirable one"

    I tend to agree, and still, EVEN IF he's at one spot to give a speech, that's not a guarantee that by the time his location is confirmed, the orders given, the ordinance launched and the travel time, there's no guarantee that he'll still be in the area...

    and plus, assassinations are not a good business to get into... actually, getting into the business of the internal affairs of other countries is just wrong on so many levels... especially if you start using private mercs and torture tactics, etc...

    Not to mention, it would be illegal to snipe Qhadaffi and Obama is too big-a-pussy to take the heat for that one.

    The predador can circle overhead until the target is confirmed, then launch a hellfire missle that takes seconds to reach it's target.

    He gave a rambling speech for hours the other day. His whereabouts were known and his identity confirmed. Fruit vendors don't stand in front of their followers and give speeches. Don't even need HD.

    It's not the first time we tried to take him out. The technology is there to do it this time.

    It doesn't mean the government has stopped assissinating people. Just not high-profile targets anymore. Because it would cause too much attention.
