Let the Europeans handle this one.

Nice thought but no chance in hell the grand-standing, egocentric US of A would allow a chance at battle pass by...gotta distract the peoples from the financial crisis.  Plus, they have to use some of the older stock of missles and such so they have more reason to spend on new stuff.  The corporate/military/ponzi system needs fresh money!

Oh yeah, then there is the OIL!

How'd you get a first post from Peru?

Of course, with the nuke disaster it became obvious more US nuke power is 1000yrs away,

so better bolster those oil reserves.


Do you people actually dress yourselves?

Blind luck!  The USA is not the only country with DSL...

I still would have liked to have seen how FRANCE handled this, but I just read elsewhere that the USA has chipped in with firing some 100 missiles.

Uhh.  None of this is going to end well.

For f**k sake, can't we have a day go by on this planet when some knuckle head brainwashed U.S. military moron (and other western world morons) isn't killing some brown people, because a man in a suit owned by some scum of the earth banker told them too.

The sooner we realize we CAN'T bring those cavemen into western society...the better off we'll fucking be!  We've wasted so much god damn time and money trying to get brown people "equal" to whites/asians it isn't funny.  Talk about throwing good money after bad.  Wake up!  It ain't happening...brown people in general can't make the cut...JV at best...  So stop wasting everyone's time...

what's amazing is all that oil money these sand niggas been collecting all these years and can't a one send a single missle into the bowls of one of these ships. Not that I want to see that happen but man... why haven't we just conquered their oil decades ago ?

Once again, the plutocracies of europe initiate a world war.

And the U.S. has been dragged into it easier than in the previous ones.

The moslem street inside europe is about to go kablaam!

"The moslem street inside europe is about to go kablaam!"

I'm not so sure it will. European Muslims are increasingly radicalized. Ghadaffi is a dinosaur in the world of purist Islam. I suspect the French gvt will get brownie points with it's Muslim population for it's participation.

Neh, Ghadaffi isn't a people's hero.

Though he dreams of it, with his eyes open.

The people that support him now are the ones that took his side, because they thought he'd win.

Look carefully at that.

It's a piddlin 1.5 million bpd.  The world uses 75 mbpd, and they're going to war over 1.5.

Now try to return to the delusion that there is sufficient oil flow and no problems at all going forward.

That's correct. This is a much bigger operation than Libya. Who's next?

On a brighter note, gold and silver should do well next week.

silver should do well next week.


I believe that I once read that a cruise missile incorporates 1100 oz of silver. I think we fired off 110 of those today. Will Blythe be scouring Tripolitan ruble in search of needed supplies?

Sat, 03/19/2011 - 18:10 | 1076767 CrashisOptimistic

Marginal supply can't be an issue if there is all that spare pumping capacity claimed.

Going to war proves about as clearly as it can be proven that there is none.  Take 1 mbpd out and things start to die.

It's not going to be much longer.

High quality stuff, not Saudi carp, plus you have to look at exported product (not overall demand). As a percentage of exported crude it is much higher.

How is this relevant to the overall point?

There Is No Slack.  Oil Production Levels Are Insufficient.

Lose just 1 mbpd and upheaval asserts itself.

Correct... Libyan exports are about 3% of supply.

Saudi Arabia is now infested with Asian Carp??

Crash, this is NOT about oil at all. This is juiced and laced with esoteric overtones and blood-lust undertones.

Note the 7 year time-lapse, to the day and the serving up of blood, gore adn bombs away on the 33rd parallel.

Trying to put logic to what is an in-herently illogical situation is a fool's errand.

Call me illogical, but I see this spreading left and right and up towards Europe as all the dispossed Tunisians, libyans and Algerians and assorted other Arabic immigrants in France (last time I was there, I saw more Burkha's than minis) Italy...start to rumble.

But of course, common man's suffering is in-consequential in the planner's diaries.

You're right about the esoteric overtones.  They DO NOT choose names, dates or locations by happenstance.  BTW the 33rd parallel goes thru Japan and is also the location of 33 liberty street and a significant level in freemasonry, 33 degree.

Are we using emps (or just spamming Daffy's in box for fun)?
