Why The Price Of Oil Has Risen From About $75 To About $100 Over The Past Six WeeksAfter it's recent rise, we recommend investors take profits in oil. It can go higher but we like taking profits after a rapid rise.

ParsGold (your post deleted?) This post has nothing to do with any fundamental Oil discussion but is just an Oil price snapshot. There/s nothing more to it.
Like the A/FOA Gold picture, the A/FOA Oil picture is a beautiful concept, but only just some very important chapters out of a book. If you want to grasp the big picture you either have to read the whole book or fill in the other chapters yourself thus making your own book, like fofoa does. Also a beautiful book but partly ignoring history.
I choose this Indy alias because I love history and adventure. History is the only truth we have, the rest is a mere prediction.
Now Armstrong is describing a possible future, based on a whole book of history and you can take it from me, he knows history.
He is writing this future based on a western money market perspective, but at least there is a complete history backing his story.
Unlike fofoa who is writing a creative gold book not based on a western money market but INGNORING historical facts. Fofoa is predicting history based on a A/FOA prediction that involves only a few (but far from all) history chapters. Now here the freegold-advocates come in predicting a mere self fulfilling prophecy without taking enough historical facts into account. That/s what surprises me sometimes. Because I grasp what Freegold proposes, but I see a fundamental impediment to its function and that is human nature against a proper historical background.
So is the case with this middle east & oil problem. If you don’t know that this whole eastern and southern Mediterranean Sea region was Turkish (except Persia / Iran) and you can’t grasp why the English, French and Italian intervened in this area, drawing lines in the sand and thus creating countries that never existed before, where does that leave you. Then you can’t understand why later on the German army did what they did in those area/s and later on the American/s. You can be against or pro Israel or the Palestinian people. But lacking proper historical facts you can't ration it and it becomes just an overall news media feeling.
Of course it was and still is all about energy but that doesn’t explain ALL current events. God isn’t doing this but it is a huge MIX of different kinds of internal Arabian problems and
Eastern & Western self-interest.
For example the Russians have huge interests in Syria but not in the other North African countries. The Russians make deals with the Chinese and just therefore they vote against western resolutions to intervene. Also Assad is member of the Sunni Baath party that oppresses the people for decades now, but Iran is a Shia based country and both are 100% the opposite. However Assad accepts Iranian help against the USA but not without doubts.
Also the Russians and Chinese have interests in Iran and therefore vote against resolutions to intervene in that country. On the other hand they are very much concerned about the nuclear developments in that country. They helped Iran building the plants but didn’t expect them to develop a real bomb.
Maybe there is no bomb but I can assure you that within the Iranian conservative clergy there is a huge battle going on and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad could become victim of an even more conservative leader. If that would be the case you can aspect civil riots in Teheran like you see them nowadays in Cairo.
US against THEM or THEY against the REST or Oil for DOLLARS ONLY ...... is much to easy, because there is so much more too it.
