War for Oil, Part 2

Remember back in 2003, those good old days when war in Iraq was just George Bush's nightly wet dream. Back then, Rupert Murdoch, owner of Fox News and propaganda arm of the Republican Party, predicted wonderous things.
"The greatest thing to come out of this for the world economy, if you could put it that way, would be $20 a barrel for oil. That's bigger than any tax cut in any country." ~ Rupert Murdoch
Today on Fox News, Stephen Forbes predicted that war with Iran will lead to a $15 drop in oil prices. When Murdoch spoke, oil prices were under $30 a barrel. Today, the price is about $70. But, it is just Spring Fever, when a young neo-con's fancies turns to killing Moslems for petroleum.
