http://money.cnn.com/2001/11/22/international/oil/ And I thought those bastards were our friends. I say we drop one symbolic 15,000 lb daisycutter bomb on the capital of each of those nations that cutback production . . . just to show them that here in the USA, we don't take kindly to price fixers.

I think it is time to start rouding up and detaining those of or who look like they are of Norwegian descent.

Norway just made a big mistake. It doesnt matter how many of these little players side with OPEC. Russia now controlls petrolium pricing as long as they can continue to afford dumping at below market value. This will have 0 influence on US oil prices- in the EU things might be different.

Oh damn, I lost my job and have to sell some prebans to get by.....Oh shit! Everybody else is doing the same thing so each preban is worth $500 less than I paid for it......Gee, I wish all these other prebans were taken off the market so I could get more $$$ for mine. Or, you're an electrician who has been getting $60.00/hour for service work. Suddenly 5 new electricians arrive in your town and the rate suddenly drops to $35.00/hour. Bet you wish they'd all leave so the rate would go back up. This is no different. Since when has basic capitalism been a sin?

You mean since when has collusion and price fixing been anti-progressive in capitalistic economies? Well, since day one, correct? By dropping the price to compete in your hypothetical scenarios, basic capitalism is occurring. Conversely, Norway is COLLUDING with OPEC with the intent to FIX prices. This is not how capitalism works; it's how it fails.

Even though GW said "you are either with us or against us" countries and people do not get it. Norway with this shit and Spain saying we cant kill terrorist. I think we should stick with the us vs them theory and tell Norway to F-off. Spain is a pissant country we can get the terrorist out of there we should just give them the option of turning them over or fighting to keep em.

I lost my job October 25th this year. I had been working for Schlumberger Oilfield Services running a cement pump for a little over a year and a half. Before I went to work for them I worked for BJ Services running a cement pump also. My job was dependant on oil prices. The higher the price, the more wells were drilled. For every well drilled we could count on at least 2 cement jobs. Guess what happened, oil prices dropped because OPEC increased production. Another contributiong factor is the weather in the Northeast. It has been a very mild winter so far. That means less oil and natural gas is being used. Now lets see if some of you can get this through your heads. If OPEC and some of the other oil companies ( and this is another reason Bush is talkin to the Russians) can drop production even a little, oil and gas prices WILL come up here. The more they come up, the more companies drill, the more they drill, the better chance I will have of getting a friggin job. Right now I could care less if I get a chance to go out hunting or to the range. All I care about is going back to work so I don't get kicked out of my apartment, or have my pickup or motorcycle repoed. Hell, I'll be lucky to keep my guns. So the next time you bitch about paying a little more at the pump think about guys like me. I will gladly pay $1.50 a gallon at the pump to keep my job. So yes this little deal will work, and with it more guys like me will get their jobs back. Rant mode off, and nomex on. Flame away.

Hell of we have to do is Build A pipeline from Russia through Afghanistan for the Russians and get a good deal for building it for them. And we won't have to worry about OPEC or Any other country. Benjamin

Spain is the only country to be run by a Nazi Dictator until the late 70's/early 80's. The Dictator of Spain, General Franco, was aided into power in 1937 by none other than Adolph Hitler himself. As for imbroglio's idea, it sucks. I am of Norwegian/Swedish/French/Spanish/German/Cherokee/English Descent and I am 100% American. I say go ahead and attack these countries, but do not incarcerate persons of their descent.
