    I have heard something similar... Ahh... Iran is buinding atomic plants despite huge oil and gas reserves. "It is an economy, stupid". With current prices it would be more profitable to sell oil and gas and produce electicity by nuclear power-stations.

    Do you agree with this opinion?

    Short answer is no, post-Ukraine Europe is alert to Russia potentially using energy as political leverage and will act on a National level to ensure stability. The UK should be fine as long as we've got this..

    Why are we in Iraq again?
  3. Not for oil, thats for sure.
  4. I know..LETS INVADE!! I mean we did it in Iraq, (and what a grand job we did there!). We could form a coalition with Papua New Guinea and enter by walking across the Bearing Strait ice floes. We could depose the evil Russian Oligarchs and power salesmen and replace them with a puppet government no-one likes. Then we could run the risk of a war between the former Soviet states. Without any exit strategy. Sorry, what was that? Oh, no political will eh? Ok then. we will just continue to kick ten barrels of excrement out of the middle east then. Thats easier isn't it children?
  5. I'm with ya! :)
