I’m sure the Chimpletons never heard what I’m about to remind you of, even if it was one of their mantras for being in Iraq not so very long ago.

One of Osama’s core goals, almost a foundation plank of his philosophy in fact, was to get the price of oil to $100 a barrel. Osama understood that if he could get this done, Western economies would begin to implode under the stress of the price of imported oil. Osama, never did, and still doesn’t, want to do what the Chimpletons think he wants to do-as in, kill every Westerner. Osama’s sights have always been set on a greater Arab Caliphate, and a weakened Western world would make achieving the dreamed-of Caliphate a much easier task. (1.) Osama’s Wahhabi brethren in Saudi Arabia collect enormous sums of money while (2.) wrecking Western economies, leaving the West far less able to send any kind of force to bother him. It’s a win-win situation.

What a friend Osama has in Chimpy! The moronic monkey’s fiscal and foreign policies have pushed the price of a barrel of oil past Osama’s benchmark, Chimpy is radicalizing (at least) tens of thousands more young men-AND he’s breaking the back of the US Armed Forces at THE SAME TIME!!! Could Osama have gotten a better deal if he’d rubbed a lamp in his cave and a genie came out? I think not!

Please, wingtards-feel free to correct me. I would absolutely LOVE to argue this one with any who care to do so. Osama would never have launched the September 11 atacks if Gore had won the Presidency, because there’s an awfully good chance Gore would have confined his military operations to flushing out al Qaeda. I am convinced Osama knew precisely what he was setting of when he chose to kill a bunch of Americans under the coke-eyed watch of the moronic monkey. We gift-wrapped everything Osama wanted and hand-delivered it to him.

Heckuva job, Chimpy. Talk about “winning” the War on Tur!

Oil prices streaked into new record territory for the second straight day Wednesday, boosted by a decline in US energy reserves and as the weakening dollar drew investments in commodities.

New York’s main oil futures contract, light sweet crude for delivery in May, crossed 115 dollars a barrel for the first time and hit 115.14 dollars in electronic trading after the market close.

The contract had settled up 1.14 dollars at a record close of 114.93 dollars earlier Wednesday, before surging higher in after-hours trading.

In London, Brent North Sea crude for June struck an intraday record high of 112.79 dollars a barrel before closing at a record 112.66 dollars, a gain of 1.08 dollars.

London Brent surged even higher in after-hours trading, however, striking a record peak of 112.83 dollars.

Both futures contracts had hit record highs Tuesday during trading and at the close as the market worried about tight supplies.

Those concerns were brought to the boil Wednesday by the weekly report from the US Department of Energy (DoE) that showed US energy stockpiles tumbled in the week ending April 11.

US crude inventories slumped by 2.3 million barrels last week compared with analysts’ consensus forecast for a drop of 1.8 million.

US crude stocks now stand at 313.7 million barrels, in the lower half of the average range for this time of year, the department said.

“The crude import data showed little sign of recovering after last week’s steep decline,” said Eric Wittenauer, an analyst at AG Edwards.

The DoE said that gasoline stocks fell by 5.5 million barrels, considerably more than market expectations for a fall of 1.8 million barrels, while distillate stocks such as heating fuel and diesel rose by 100,000 barrels, against predictions for a 1.5 million barrel decline.

Traders are focused on gasoline supplies — refined from crude oil — ahead of the peak demand season for motor fuel that starts in May with the American holiday season.

“The headlined figures are bullish for crude and gasoline, bearish for heating oil,” Citigroup analyst Tim Evans said.

Oil futures also gained support after the dollar plunged to an all-time low against the euro, traders added.

The European single currency rocketed to a record high 1.5979 dollars after official data showed annual eurozone inflation at an all-time peak, paring the possibility of a European Central Bank interest rate cut.

The weak US unit encourages demand for dollar-priced goods like crude which become cheaper for buyers using stronger currencies.

“Crude has taken on the role of economic measurement that was traditionally held by Treasuries, currencies and precious metals,” said John Kilduff of MF Global.

In 1970, Saudi Arabia’s official oil price was fixed at 1.80 dollars a barrel, according to the US DoE. An OPEC oil embargo in 1974 pushed oil prices imported by US refineries above 10 dollars, and in the intervening years have ultimately traded higher.

That there is one hell of an appreciation. Find me something else that’s jumped like oil.
