Originally posted by Double EightsI'm also not seeing how oil prices will rise, considering we get....zero....oil from Iraq.
Everytime there is a terrorist incident in Saudi the prices jump immediately. Sure most of the fighters in Iraq are in fact Iraqi, but they have had
foreign fighters coming in as well, those fighters eventually go home, and the worry is they will be ready to fight their own corrupt governments.
The fear of trained fighters going back to their countries, or taking up causes in other countries is a big worry.
Plus there will be a big power struggle regarding who gets to rule Iraq. Since they are majority Shi'ite there is a good chance if the US did not try
to install their own puppet regime the leaders will be Shi'ite.
The US went in there hoping to be able to install permanent bases as well as secure cheap oil from an ally. The way things are going now, left to
their own devices there will be war for quite some time and chances are they will be run by the Shi'ite majority eventually, which would make them an
ally of Iran and Syria and the US would really really hate that.
