Translation: "The Arabs didn't like the idea; it didn't effect supplies in the world that much; it didn't do a damned bit of good for the Palestinians, and we need the money to keep funding our program to find weapons of mass destruction. So come buy our oil again."

ROTFL.

Sure they will!! But it shows just how insignificant Iraq really is in trying to rally the Arab world. They're still a parriah, even within their own region, despite the protestations from other Arab nations about U.S. intent towards them.

Alpha,

Marco said that USA controls the prices of Iraqi oil.
I think it is not true, because the oil price today is $25.82 for a barell (it has been this high for a while) and US wants to see it around $18
How is it that they control it?

Actually, the US market does pretty much drive the price of oil. If it gets too high ("Too high" being defined as the price at which the pain of paying exceeds the pain of conserving), then conservation begins in earnest, consumption (or its growth) declines, and oil prices are depressed for a while.

kolobokman,

Let's just put it this way: if Saudi Arabia or any other Arab nation tries to higher oil prices...the USA leaves the region...Iraq invades Kuwait and Saudi. Iraq is a there to ensure that Saudi and all the others sell their oil at a reasonable price.

If Iraq stops oil shipments, then Saudi mkes up for the lost oil. It's very simple.

kolobokman,

No offence but obviously you do not know enough about the region. The Gulf states of Kuwait, Qatar, UAE, Bahrain and Saudi literally worship USA. First of all most of the leaders of these countries were helped, by the USA, to take over the power from their fathers/relatives (eg: UAE and Qatar). Second of all the USA protects all of them from two islamic super powers, Iran and Iraq. That is enough for these Arab states to do whatever the USA wants them to do. The USA is in control and will always be in control.

And about Iraq attacking Israel, well Syria, Egypt with the help of Iraqi's tried to attack Israel. Syria lost 1,000 tanks in one day. Egypt lost all the missile launchers Iraq had provided them, and the list goes on, and this was in the 1960's. Israel is superior to all of these countries combined.

Don't be to sure of that. Events like 9-11, other terrorism treats or strong anti-american feelings in the area might be a sign that a lot of people would like to see this 'control' to change hands.
Our western world need their oil, deseperately need it, so who's really in control? Big grin

I'm talking about the leaders and not the people. The Gulf states are anything but democracies so the people have very little say in the government. However you are right about the people. In fact as the world is progressing, they are totally regressing. Also, they do not appreciate what the USA has done for most them. If it weren't for the USA, I doubt Kuwait, Saudi and even the UAE/Bahrain would exist today.

The western world doesn't desperately need their oil. The USA imports a lot of oil from Venezuela and Canada. Texas has a lot of oil too. They do need the oil, but to say they desperately need the oil is a overdoing it.

Anyways in conclusion the USA is in the region, they have bases everywhere, they control the oil pirices, so if anything the Americans are in control.

Kind regards
