US EIA chief: 'World can't afford to lose Iran's Oil.' Really? Can we afford a Nuclear Armed Iran More? That's The Real Question.

SURRENDER MONKEY: Chief of the United States Energy Information Administration, Guy Caruso, declared that 'we cannot afford to lose Iran's oil.' Even if true, is that the kind of message that the US Government should be loudly declaring? Mr. Caruso might as well have declared the US a hostage of Iran and beg for mercy. Perhaps Mr. Caruso should check with his boss in the White House before announcing in the name of all of us how weak we are. The real question is what can we afford less: A) oil at $100 a barrel or, B) Iran armed with Nuclear weapons? If that is the choice, the Neocon will take option (A) any day of the week over option (B). Maybe Mr. Caruso has different values.

UPDATE: Responding to Mr. Caruso, Senator John MaCain (R-AZ): "Americans should be prepared to accept higher oil prices that may result from sanctions on Iran, if that is what it takes to stop Iran's nuclear program. These are a set of bad options, but if the price of oil has to go up, then that's a consequence we would have to suffer." MaCain was also quoted today as saying that: "Iran poses a greater danger to the US than Iraq at this point, and must be contained."


  1. Right on the money. You should see what this guy had to say about Iran having the upper hand as if the price of gas is going to make the West capitulate to Tehran.

  2. Excellent Comment! Ajveros continues to do solid research on the Iran issue. I was not aware of the McCaian comment. Please note the surrender Op-ed from the left-wing UK Guardian UK paper titled: "The west has picked a fight with Iran that it cannot win": http://www.guardian.co.uk/comment/story/0,3604,1688777,00.html. These folks are real Surrender Monkey's!
