    I think we'll be seeing $5 per gallon very soon.

    Gee what a surprise. BP stock goes down, so now they "accidentally" hit an oil pipeline which no doubt will be the reason oil/gas prices increase even more. You can't write a better script.

  5. ...NOT!!!

    You know, a duck could fart on the Moon, and the Wall Street clowns would raise the prices on oil futures. Considering how very little oil we *get* from Libya, why is this even a factor?

    Just patch it up. No big deal.

      A patch means an extra "whatever they feel like spiking gas prices to" to fix.

    I guess they were aiming for the MMR and missed. I'm sure they will hit it soon enough. It takes a terrorist to know one.

    For those who don't know... MMR is how most civilians in libya get water. A hit on the MMR would effectively kill 4.5 million civilians. We used to call that genocide the current pc words are humanitarian aid. DON'T DO IT U.N. !

    @Herbert: as a half brit mutt I can agree. Lol There's still a few centuries of make up that England needs to do. Not that every ethnicity doesn't have blood on their hands, but I'm hoping to erase the sins of my fathers asap, so the rest of humanity can be smote. The Mayans and Germans are eternally screwed though. I still think this was a purposeful oopsie to allow tinkering in the commodities market. The pilots are just given a flight plan, but they get their flight plans from higher ups... Prince Charles perhaps?

    Sorry folks, I posted @ 7:28, but I was just joking, after all, I am a Tea Partier. I did NOT mean what I posted I wanted to get a reaction, and I did lol. I love the British-Long live the Queen of England; anyone who hates her is a bloody fool.

      Thank you,Herbert. I feel the same way you do about the British and their queen. But then again,what do I know??? I'm still an ignorant Tea Partier and a drunk like you.

      Sorry Herbert,I see that some jerk just usurped your name here trying to make you look stupid. He does the same to me sometimes. These lowly Tea Partiers think of everything under the sun. Like you Herbert,I know how the British truly are and I know their national history.

    The story didn't say if this reduces the income of East Libya or the Tripoli regime. This is an important distinction.
