Three weeks of terrifying "economic sanctions" by Iran on the west, using the power of spin, PR and global media fanaticism, have left most enemies of Iran reeling, still bleeding and in pain from the financial repercussions of oil prices climbing steadily towards infinity.
Even now the price isn't coming down in any real sense, it's just deflating a bit at its new high level. Even China, in full economic bloom, suffered from the oil price hike.
Seems the price of barrel oil started coming down as soon as the US agreed to talk to Iran. If true would mean the oil balloon is speculation based on war with Iran. One further could speculate that the talks stalled, and US went back to the usual 'Iran is everything evil under the sun', and the oil price drop has stalled.

I follow the news and they are estimating that President Obama will win the 2012 election. Do you agree? I voted for Obama, but now I don’t know if I would again. I don’t blame him for where our economy is but do you believe he has made changes for the good or bad of this country? I’m...
