Iran Rising: Gas for Europe, Gas for India & Pakistan...Sanctions? Israel? No Problem

Iran Rising: Gas for Europe, Gas for India & Pakistan...Sanctions? Israel? No Problem

If you're wondering why Iran has been on the US' (and Israel's) hit list, wonder no more: (oh, you did not really believe it was because of the 'nuclear weapons possibility' did you? tsk tsk, the reason is so much more 'common')

19th World Petroleum Congress
World Petroleum Council

"The rise of Iran continues. And that rise was made abundantly clear during the 19th World Petroleum Congress in Madrid in early July.

A large, supremely confident Iranian delegation attended the triennial gathering that brings together energy officials from all over the world. The Iranian contingent in Madrid was many times larger than the one that attended the 18th World Petroleum Congress in Johannesburg in 2005. Then, the National Iranian Oil Company had a small booth in the rear of the exhibit hall in Sandton, consisting of a small sign, two tables, a handful of chairs, and a couple bowls of pistachio nuts. This year, the Iranians had a huge installation inside the sprawling Madrid Fair exhibition space near the airport. The N.I.O.C. had a glitzy raised platform of glass, plastic, and colorful placards that rivaled the scale and flash of those of other national oil companies, including China's Sinopec and the Kuwait Petroleum Company. Indeed, the Iranians exhibit was immediately next to (and almost exactly the same size as) Saudi Aramcos, the world's biggest oil producer."

So now the US has effectively re-made Russia into 'the enemy', and continues to do so with the hell do you think we're supposed to get oil? (psst! here's a hint; it's not by saying pretty please!)

well, gee whiz, I thought the plan was to invade Mexico next and skarff up their huge offshore deposits...not like they really NEED them, their economy being whacked and all that...we would then justify this takeover on the basis of how many "illegals" we provide medical care and schooling for in the US and how they owe us as holding court in the front yard this afternoon?

I think Mexico is already in our pocket isn't it?? Might's well save on all the military might elsewhere! [g]
as for the afternoon 'court; I hope to be out there but at what time I don't know. Dirk is supposed to have an old friend from school come by about 'now' with his dad and they would leave around 3-sh. Then WE sooo need our haircuts and that is a must-do for the afternoon before I'd be thinking of holding court..we'd just go down to the supercuts for that so it all depends on how busy..still, we'll be out at some point hopefully sooner than later.. I'll email you! (or give me a call if you want to check)

Mexico is going to be incorporated! You have heard about the North American Union with America, Mexico, and Canada right?

Anyway absolutely everything, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Georgia, drill, drill, drill in America. With oil running the white house and America it is all about oil and energy! If you need links let me know!

AP, yes indeedy. We have gotten the not go near the border over the Labor Day weekend...fireworks, brother, fireworks about to pop. ..still, if we invade Mexico as a pre-emptive thing, wouldn't it take everyone's focus off who the VP will would be a great distraction, and hoo, boy, do the Bushies ever need a distraction right about now!

Ingrid, call me or I'll catch you a bit later...having some furniture delivered this afternoon. Who knows when these guys will show up?
