Oil tankers attacked.

Okay.....but why does this mean petrol prices go up?  Are they the only two tankers in the Universe?  What has happened to the oil in them?  They seem to be still floating?  What?

All the other fuel tankers are to frightened to sail through, supply and demand.

They build the tankers a lot better these days, they are all sectioned off so they can be blown in half, still float and not
and not loose to much oil. The torpedo was a warning shot, like one over the bow.

You would think that with all this talk and reality of electric cars and green energy the oil moguls would try and keep petrol prices as low as possible, saying to the world fossil fuels are cheap as chips.

But nup there in on it too, that is the golden goose on wall street where nations pay for the free air above their country.

As for those cowboys they need another OK Corral (ala Thatcher and Falkland islands) to try and save Fanta pants, but Russia and Iran are allies so it might not be a cake walk after all, maybe WW3.

Who knows maybe Fanta pants unzipped himself in front of Sarah Sanders.

It's time Australia had its own oil and gas industry.

Plus, people get spooked. They might try to increase stockpiles in case this escalates.

One has been rescued ... the other that was on fire & loaded was adrift.

One was loaded the other not.

Stupid idiots that targeted them should realise that if that tanker explodes & sends it's cargo into the sea ... their coastlines & fisheries will be stuffed .... as well as other countries.

Trouble is those responsible don't has the nous for constructive thought processes regarding action & responsibility & consequence.

Australia's stockpile is very, very low at the moment.

Much less than the required 90 days.

when you think where most of the OIL is situated and how  those main countries live....and its all they have....to export......imagine the crisis ahead for those countries.....not in our lifetime maybe.. but it is there

then ask yourselves what the hell are they doing NOW to make their countries sustainable in the future?...seems to me  exporting tall building wont replace oil...

you never know ajax   maybe the West can see whats ahead for oil reliant countries.....

and are just marking time.

Not 100% convinced about Iran being the culprit.... too convenient for my liking.... and definitely not when based on those kinds of extrapolations on the data available... stay within the Stargate, people.... talk of proxies can be very misleading without any evidence....

Ladies, Gentlemen - my intention is to bring the tankers home... what are your intentions?

The globalists the oligarchy the 1% they are the ones that run most of the oil in the middle east except for Iran of course.

That and the fact that they haven't been able to place one of their central banks in Iran is why they always have their cross hairs pointed at them.

Terrorism is a way to control all people even innocent ones, as for terrorists they have always been on their pay role.

The oligarchy make plans for themselves for the next 50 to 100 years.

The massive social and economic divides remain in the oil-rich nations... as a footnote, the Sultan of Brunei, formerly considered somewhat 'moderate' and Western etc, has decreed that women 'guilty' of adultery will be publicly stoned.

Interestinger and interestinger.....

No it isn't. It needs no excuse at all. It is a good thing. It delivers goods to those who value them most. It means if not enough is being produced, there is an immediate incentive to increase production, without the need to invoke the wheels of bureaucracy.

Can't help but ask why somebody of your age would ask the above questions.........

Doesn't it occur to you (Mr Ex Lawyer?) that if this is Iran's doing (which it most likely is), the chance of an all out war with the US occurs exponentially thus causing the price of oil to skyrocket.........and the 'whereabouts' of two or three tanker loads of crude oil is really not the point, what will happen to the billion and billions of barrels of crude oil if there is a war.......

Hmm - we might have to attack Pearl Harbour and hope to remove the entire Pacific Fleet from the chessboard at one stroke..... ummm ... might not work, though...
