Battle rages over Libyan oil port


english.aljazeera.net

The Libyan air force has bombed the oil refinery and port town of Marsa El Brega as battles between forces loyal and against Muammar Gaddafi raged in several towns across the North African country.

"We just watched an air force jet ... fly over Brega and drop at least one bomb and huge plumes of smoke are now coming out ," Al Jazeera's Tony Birtley said on Wednesday.

Well, wonder how the oil markets are going to react to this. I also wonder what is going to happen when the riots start in Saudi Arabia (as it is, I see facebook groups starting up, people getting organized to start protesting)

So what does everyone think the States is going to do? They don't have enough troops to send in, do they?

No matter what happens, Gaddafi isn't going to step down or go into exile - Libya is more then likely going to erupt into civil war.

The markets will probably drop 150-200 points tomorrow.

It will be interesting to watch the Asian and other eastern markets tonight.

When Saudi Arabia seriously erupts with protest, it will be time to fill your tank and get whatever supplies you can because it will be only days after that the world economy starts to fall apart. It started happening when oil was still available at $150 a barrel, and if the Saudis start to revolt, you can guarantee $200-$300 a barrel.... far more than most of us could afford just to get to work.

Oil = currency.

Here you go:

www.cnn.com...

pffft...that isn't even the one I meant to post... They have a video on the main page at cnn.com right now showing a bomb dropping, but the article it points to has the video linked. I have no idea why they didn't just put the video in the article..

With 100% certainty I see an explosion in an empty field.

With somewhat less certainty I see a bombing initiated by a bomber. In an empty field.

Gas went up ten cents just a couple of hours ago here in Anchorage. Filled up, drove by an hour later and it was ten cents more.
