Iran Being Attacked By Us Effect On Oil

Recommended Posts

read this from the daily reckoning.....

And across the Thames in The City, the stock market's

3 biggest one-day losses of this year so far have all

come in the last 3 weeks. Last night, the FTSE100 closed

6.1% down from its peak of September 30th. What shocks

might knock stocks lower from here? Our friend Michael

Orme picks up the story...

"I participated last week in a closed session at a

leading City investment bank with one of the

Government's top advisers on international affairs," he

writes in the latest edition of Disruptive Investments.

"It took place under Chatham House rules: no

attribution, no press...I can share some of the headline

points with you. [but] as the adviser put it: 'It's not

what gets discussed in polite society'."

- "The likelihood of the United States attacking Iran is

increasing by the day, we were told. You see, US

strategy is to prevent any state from being able to

deter it as the USSR once did. This means China in 2030

and Iran now - and bear in mind that China is in bed to

the tune of $100 billion with Iran over oil already. The

idea of mullahs with nukes in the era of the terror war

with unreformed Islam is unacceptable to the US. And

given that Bush isn't standing again, the Republican

Party needs to go 'hard-line' to increase the chances of

a Cheney/Rice succession."

- What's more, Michael goes on, "the increasing

likelihood that before long there will be a major

terrorist attack on the US mainland - even in the form

of an A-bomb - renders an attack on Iran politically do-

able. No land forces would be needed; just surgical

strikes and a campaign like the Serbian operation. In

fact, the US would only need to put 120 planes up to

attack 5,000 targets simultaneously."

- The Whitehall adviser Michael spoke to knows the Bush

people at first hand. "He even said some of the most

influential among them had been deemed 'too radical' for

the Reagan administrations! He also stressed the

religious fundamentalism of the Bush camp 'neocons', who

'repeat the very fundamentalist vision of their enemies

in al-Qaeda, who want to build a Caliphate from the

Atlantic to the Indian Ocean'."

- So what's the worst case scenario? "A preemptive

strike against Iran, more terrorism and a spike in the

oil price to $400 per barrel," Michael warns. And the

likelihood of that? "More than 50-50 is my guess," he

says.
