Ask yourself this: if Chevron, ExxonMobil & BP were all drilling down beyond 36,000’ by 2004, out in the Gulf. If Shell’s TLPs taken out by Katrina were in 4,800’ to 6,900’ water; everybody fighting over artic, Gaza & Siberian plays, before the Fracking pyramid scheme: perhaps, we might want to back away from spending way over a TRILLION a year and countless millions of totally innocent human lives to subsidize an energy source that cost FAR more to acquire than a sane free market value?

Interesting, unlike USA, etc, Iran is not instantly blaming ANYONE without investigating the incident. HMMM, wonder who it could’ve been!

A covert attack on the Saudi oil fields being blamed on Iran didn’t produce the desired war so now a more direct approach is used in order to force Iran into conflict. Seems like there’s one country in the Middle East with no desire for war. And what would Iran gain from war? Their country would be decimated. Next step is a direct attack inside Iran by the US. god help us all if that happens.

The US is constantly prepared to defend their aircraft carriers from missiles. They always have their AWACS and drones in the air. They’re always monitoring their satellite pictures and they’re probably bugging phone lines as usual. They know exactly who fired every missile, starting with the two missile attacks on tankers that the U.S. government claimed were “Iranian mines”.
