the oil market isn't in jeopardy

* AP (in full):
"DUBAI, United Arab Emirates -- Coalition naval forces in the Gulf are on watch for possible terror threats to oil facilities in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain, Western naval officials said Friday.

A British navy official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press, said a threat from al-Qaida last month to target Gulf oil terminals had resulted in stepped-up security and vigilance at Saudi Arabia's Ras Tanura terminal, as well as a refinery in Bahrain.

Oil exports in the region were proceeding as normal, he said."
these fuckkers. it's difficult to read thru the propaganda - we know that that tensions are already high because the stupid provocation wargaming that's going on in the region - but at the same time there's an imminent election, and the 'threat' was 'last month' and all the reports appear to have the mandatory sentence that the oil market isn't in jeopardy.

fancy that.

it's almost as though they think that the american voter is ok about a new war, so long as the price of gas is flat-lining.
