Oil Markets Shrug Off Iranian Attack on U.S. Drone

Fox News -- An unarmed, unmanned U.S. drone flying in international airspace was fired on by Iran last week, Pentagon officials confirmed on Thursday, highlighting mounting tensions between the two countries. The move's ultimate impact on oil prices will depend on several factors, analysts said.

Yes, they didn't hit it, and we didn't respond! We probably never will.

The media needs to quit reporting problems in the mid-east because it gives the big oil barons a reason to raise fuel prices immediately.

all you crazy people who want us to go to war with Iran can go suck an egg. Like we got money for Another War, just hanging out there. Ok, lets take it from education, so we end up being just like them, a bunch of war hungry, uneducated morons, fighting every battle we can. The sanctions will work, and they didn't do any harm to our Un-Armed drone.
