Looks like we're gonna be stuck on oil for a while longer...unless China chews it all up. What's going to happen in the next comming years? Will Iraq become the new military power in the area? Will this make Iran tremble? Especially with all the US weapons they will prolly buy with this money? Will this bring economic prosperity and stability to the region? Or will it lead to more war as the fate of Iran's oil is determined by local politicians in the near future with more force? Maybe this is why Iran is presumably racing toward the bomb? What do you think? Discuss.
