At $300/barrel we would just glass the whole region and tell the world an astroid hit.

If you think NATO was quick to get into Lybia, just wait for Saudi.

Highly doubt NATO will enter Saudi as their murdering dictator is already doing with his police what has been happening in Libya. Check YouTube for videos as the Saudi police and killing citizens, causing damage to private property without any real reason (smashing parked cars, etc).

Of course the Saudi dictators are VERY close friends to the Bush family and also Obama. Saudi also has a very important US MIL base there. As such, expect the USA to allow this now rogue Saudi ruler to murder as many citizens as he feels is needed without any NATO/UN action.

Double standard bitches!!!

Apparently, Iran is preparing for a pardigm shift with the 3rd phase of their planned oil bourse. I wonder if their "basket of currencies" will include the Euro?

Speaking of royalty - why do you folks in England still have royalty. Does it not pain you to still have even a token serfdom? Or is it pure entertainment at this point.

No to mention all the former colonies Australia etc. have the Queen still as head of state officially, talk about serf attitude

We have the old bitch on all of our currency as well in Canada.  Used to tell the kids she was an ex-girlfriend when they asked who was on the money.

I used to defend the Queen. Right up until I discovered the internet and places like the Daily Bell and Zerohedge....

I also used to support the UK football team, but gave that up a few years ago out of disgust that they don't even have an English Manager. Now I don't even miss it.

Seriously, we are conditioned to think that the Queen is good for the country, and the majority lap it up without question....To be honest, it is only since the non-stop wedding talk this year that I now am starting to truly (and actively) despise this lot and the inequality and "elite" families that they represent.

It is also hearing a few talks recently by Jacques Fresco and the need to abandon these fake country boundaries we have imposed between us and create a Resource Based Economy for the whole world....

Which is unbelievable coming from a die-hard England supporter of 30 years....

Hey, Lets face it, if I can sell my car and get out of debt to stop these fuckers getting any richer, so can a lot of people.....and believe it or not, it's actually quite fun not using Arab oil any more!!(and using it should be labelled as an unpatriotic act as you are bankrupting yourselves and enriching Mr. Saud!!)

Long live my electric bike I say:

HM Queen signed off on the Lisbon Treaty presented by Gordon Brown, an unelected Prime Minister and his Foreign Secretary, David Miliband. Losing our sovereignty to the EU at the hand of these people with out so much as a vote on the matter.

She doesn't have much of a choice. If she doesn't sign the piece of paper in front of her, that requirement will promptly be removed.

So the argument goes. It is utter tosh nonetheless; either you respect your subjects or you don't. Vis a vis likewise. It's not just handing over the reins it's also the millions of pounds taxed and handed over with them that matters.

HM is on our currency, tax demands, Courts and Defence Services, Constabulary, etc.

There was a real choice IMO.

You can explain to anyone the benefits of a constitutional monarchy in two simple words:

President Blair


President Brown


President Thatcher


It's like when they had the referendum in Australia a few years ago. Although the majority favored the idea of an Australian head of state, when they saw the shit the politicians were trying to pull in terms of new powers and privileges, they decided to stick with what they had.

U.S. President Barack Obama last week proposed to cut oil imports by a third over 10 years.

As long as he's just making shit up, I don't know why he didn't propose 90%.

Shorting oil is a fools errand.

Unless you hedge yourself.

But you're on the wrong site for that.
