A reliable source out of South Florida reports that the current world shortage of oil (resulting in $3.00 per gallon gasoline here in the states) is due to Bin Laden and his network of sympathetic friends who are middle eastern oil producers (OPEC), dictator Chavez in Venezuela, and others world-wide who are involved in the production, transportation, marketing and distribution of crude oil. They have been lowering production volumes and misdirecting the shipments of oil to the U.S. so as to financial cripple and eventually ruin the west.

Bin Laden is known to have bribed high-ranking OPEC officials into falsifying oil production records so it appears that they have reached maximum production when, in fact, they have been, slowly, over time, tremendously cut back that production. Additionally, container ships loaded with crude oil that had been purchased by the U.S. have been misdirected to ports around the world (other than American ports of entry) so that it takes several months longer to reach the U.S.

It is Bin Laden's goal to bankrupt the U.S. and lower it from its super-power status by denying it the precious oil it needs to keep its economy running thereby ruining America's market standing in the world. It is also Bin Laden's expectation that the U.S. military will grind to a halt and leave the middle east due to the lack of necessary petroleum products.

A reliable source on Arfcom says that it's far too easy to just make shit up and then post it.

You've really got to cool it with the insane rumors. The price of oil's rising because India and China are industrializing. Is Bin Laden buying up other natural resources like steel, cement, iron ore, aluminum, and copper? They're all rising in price too.

Yup, but then again, they'll be 4 pages of comments on this bullshit., so the motivation is there to keep doing it.

You and another “reliable source out of South Florida”…

Wait… In this case your reliable source is probably right… OBLs friends might be trying.

But if this is OBLs plan he don’t understand markets.
Link Posted: 9/16/2005 11:37:02 AM EDT
Oh, yeah...ok. Like this reliable source you posted about?

Who is the fucking source? If you can't quote the source properly they aren't reliable. They’re imaginary or tabloid bullshit.

+1, If you're going to make shit up, at least try to make it believable or humorous.


Link Posted: 9/16/2005 11:41:33 AM EDT
Ok.....the plan is to BRIBE OPEC, to produce less oil, thereby having less oil for OPEC to sell.

So with the price of oil at $65/ bbl, OBL will pay OPEC not to produce and they will agree. Talk about losing profit margins. Even OBL isn't stupid enough to think those OPEC guys would do that.

Did you read this shit before you copied and pasted??

So what does this mean? Wipe out the middle east & take over OPEC, plain & simple.


Only if this were true.............

Yeaaaah. If Osama has that much money and influence, he wouldn't be trying to pull off desperate terrorist acts to make his point.

Besides, all the real conspiracy theorists know that the oil shortage was arranged by Bush at the request of the Trilateral Commission, who are in league with the aliens, in order to prepare Earth for the coming alien invasion.

Yep, unless OBL has multiple trillion of dollars, he would have zero effect.

+ 1

There is a rumor of a trend where completely unsubstantiated pieces are posted for all to read as if it had any credibility at all. If anyone sees any value in this - please explain it.

I honestly wish that were true, that OPEC is indeed falsifying stuff to make it seem like we're at peak oil when in fact we aren't. If any possible effect Osama could have on us was like an M-80 firecracker, peak oil would be like a couple 40 megaton ICBMs hitting us at once.

Unfortunately, it isn't true.

Is anyone still falling for this stuff? Right after 9/11 there were rumor that Osama had cornered the market on arabic gum and arabica coffee beans and the Western Civilization will fall because of the lack of either items.
