It cant be that bad in Libya,
Nato,s managing to pump out 2 million barrels of oil a day.
Basf announced yesterday that they hope this figure will rise to around 2.7 m Barrels a day
So 2million barrels a day x $109 a barrel, took Nato just over 24hours to raise the money in Gaddafi,s account.
The Iraq port of Basra exports 8 million barrels of oil a day. ( under sadam it was never more than 2 million )
Iran exports 4 million barrels of oil a day.
Egypt export 7 million barrels a day from sources such as Libya, Algeria Sudan,saudi.
If Iran and Syria were to become unstable i wonder who gets the oil ?
To the people in power, the Libyan population are considered collateral damage.
Yes you can have democracy but in the 15 years it will take, they will have pumped out all the oil by then.
Dont get started on the oil pipe line that Americas just built in Afghanistan you'll not sleep for weeks.
