    Did you see Argo?
    So we are basing this conversation on movies now?
    Yes yes I know about the actual operation.

    Neither diamonds nor oil are scarce.

    Although oil, unlike diamonds, can be more challenging to transport reliably, without mishap, and those supply lines are of course vulnerable targets.
    you're killin' me here, Smalls

    Yes, has been for a while.

    What determines price?

    What are the dynamics of the oil markets?

    Who sets those prices?

    What supply scarcities really exist?

    Of course high demand is a constant, to be sure...

    It sounds like you know more

    than you're telling us.

    So please tell us what you know,

    so that we will know more

    than we do now.

    It's simply more likely failed engine maintenance than an accidental AA situation.
    Iranian airspace you mean.

    Maybe when I get back from my work our I will see if I can figure out if any other planes where in the air at the time.

    No, but it could have been hit by an AA rocket or flak. There's no minimum altitude for that.

    A lot of the speculation right now centers around projectile holes found on the wrecked fuselage and wings.

    But those holes can be made by anything, weapons as well as hot debris flying at several hundred mph.

    Not saying it was one thing or another, but I will be interested to see what comes of it.
    American Flight 587..... that is why I wait.
