An invitation to an invasion
It’s probably a good thing for Iran that the Administration is spending all their time indulging in legalisms, hair-splittings, and moment-by-moment revisionism (see Saletan here) making them too busy to get involved in any extracurricular activities, like, you know, going uninvited into other countries:
Iran has made a major new oil find containing estimated reserves of more than 38 billion barrels, making it one of the world’s biggest undeveloped fields, a senior oil official was quoted as saying Monday
Abolhasan Khamoushi, general director of Iran’s Oil Development and Engineering Company, told the Kayhan evening newspaper that the find, combining three neighboring oilfields, had been discovered close to the southern port city of Bushehr.
An oil ministry spokeswoman confirmed to Reuters the accuracy of the report but could give no further details.
Khamoushi said the fields contained crude of high density and very low API, meaning the oil will be less valuable on world markets than some other regional grades.
He said preliminary studies indicated that the Ferdows field contained 30.6 billion barrels or crude, the Mound field 6.63 billion and the Zagheh field 1.3 billion.
Dick Cheney probably has a hard-on that you could knock a house down with.
