I agree with President Obamma "Alreaddy, there is to much loose talk of war."

In my opinion each time the price of oil would go down during the Bush/Cheney administration some one in that administraion would threaten attacking Iran.
Example "We can not rule out the posibility of military strike."

What would happen? The oil speculators would bid up the price for future deliveries with the idea that perhaps the Strait of Hormuth would be closed or military action would restrict the flow of oil from the middle east.

Would we see this same thing in a Romney Presidency?

Just who were the winners of all this talk? Our domestic oil companies. Even though nothing happened their product could be sold for a much higher price because oil is a global product. Their cost of producing the product remained the same but because of increased price their profit soared.

Personally I question if our economy and our military can sustain a third military action in the middle east.

Our credit is beginning to suffer who will we borrow money from to fight it?

Not to worry, tomorrow Mitt Romney will say the statement he made concerning Iran was interpreted "in the wrong way" or the press misunderstood him, or whatever.
