Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Light sweet crude spot price punched through the psychologically important $40/bbl level today to $41.20/bbl, up $1.66/bb. http://www.bloomberg.com

    I mention this here because tightness in the oil market implies a more favorable (from the terrorist point of view) ratio of cost-to-payoff for attacks on oil infrastructure.

    I have a feeling that the people who mastermind these attacks are not stupid and are very conscious of such considerations.
