61. My God you are dense
Edited on Mon Mar-15-10 05:43 PM by Tempest
You really believe Iranian oil can be replaced without a major disruption?

Aren't you aware OPEC is already pumping at near capacity thanks in large part to China and Indonesia's economic growth?

Where exactly would all this excess oil come from?

And you fail to realize Iran would mine the Straits of Hormuz and disrupt 2/3rds of the world's oil shipments.

Not only that, but you are ignorant of the Pentagon's war case scenarios which show an attack on Iran's facility will only put them back two or three years and would double their efforts to get a nuclear weapon. It would also kill the reform movement in Iran, allowing the mullahs to concentrate power.
