The Bully

So Iran has started their grab of oil with the takeover of an oilfield in Southern Iraq.

How amazing. The Shia in that area are more closely aligned with, and intimidated by, Iran than the feeble Iraqi government.

Watch the dominoes fall across Southern Iraq. Then Kuwait. Then the island states.

Dubai will be easy prey.

The Strait of Hormuz will become a chokepoint.

The Sauds are already on the phone asking for help from their biggest customer and biggest protector.

President Obama is soon to have a tough choice.

Convert our remaining forces in Iraq into a force to blunt Iran.

Or, say hello to oil priced by the Ayatollah.

I don't expect he'll be offering free coffee with a fill-up. At $5 per gallon.
