TEHRAN (AFP) – Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said he has temporarily assumed the duties of the oil ministry, as the oil cartel OPEC prepares for a biannual meeting in Vienna.


What do you think of this? Do you like Ahmad or not? Do you think this is truly temporary? Will gas prices go up?

WEll....Obama has agreed to start drilling some more and here in Canada the oil sands are producing at almost top capacity.....Let's hope we can ween ourselves off the black gold dependance a little or enough to offset the price gauging this will produce.

Now that Iran has key control over oil, perhaps it's time for us to take the "War on Terror" over there? We could set up puppet governments both in Iran and OPEC.

Your title is misleading and inaccurate.

Ahmadinejad took over as IRAN's oil minister temporarily, after letting his own minister go.

He has not taken over OPEC, even temporarily. He may, however, attend OPEC's meeting as Iran's oil minister, though that is unlikely, according to the article.

Please fix your title to accurately reflect the article you are citing.

the first title was from the drudge website, the second was from AP, I added both for people like yourself. Take it up with drudge, I was just following the rules by quoting the exact headline. Plus it's too late to change it.

"Ahmadinejad took control temporarily"

when you got the western armies encroaching on you,from all sides,dribbling at the mouth over your oilfields,and real estate,like hungry wovles,theres a good reason,his chosen himself to stand in.

as OPEC has 79% of world crude oil reserves and 44% of the world’s crude oil production,ahmadinejad is doing more then reshuffle his government...it timed very well for the big ministerial meeting.
