War drums get louder...Submitted by Michael Nystrom on Fri, 12/18/2009 - 13:02
Here is the front page of the Drudge Report:
It links to this article on Yahoo!
The article says the oil wells are in disputed territory, and they've been exchanging hands between Iran and Iraq for several months:
"What happens is, periodically, about every three or four months, the oil ministry guys from Iraq will go ... to fix something or do some maintenance. They'll paint it in Iraqi colours and throw an Iraqi flag up.
"They'll hang out there for a while, until they get tired, and as soon as they go away, the Iranians come down the hill and paint it Iranian colours and raise an Iranian flag. It happened about three months ago and it will probably happen again."
Suddenly it gets a BIG RED headline on Drudge...
He added that the Iraqis are "very concerned about the Iranians pulling oil out of fields underneath Iraq."
