Pour concrete down their oil wells !


What we have here is a build up of negative feedback.  The more belligerent Iran, the more unstable the Middle East.  The more unstable the Middle East the higher the price of oil.  The higher the price of oil the more money Iran gets to build its military might and export terrorism.  The more terrorism exported the more unstable the Middle East.  As time goes by this loop will get stronger and stronger. 

Now there is another global problem.  The more oil the West burns the more greenhouse gasses we put in the atmosphere and the hotter our climate will get.  The hotter the climate the more the ice caps melt and the higher the oceans get and the more flooding. 

The dumbest thing we can do would be to continue our meddling in the Middle East, forcing modernity on them so that we can suck on thier oil and pollute the atmosphere.   

What is the solution?

Pour concrete down the Middle East oil wells.  This is a bit of an engineering feat so we might need to practice on one of ours first.  What we do is we go in there with trained commandos, secure the area around each well, then pour concrete down them, and seal them off. 

What happens then?

Well Middle East oil ceases to be a problem.  The price of oil doubles.  Iran can no longer afford to be belligerent and export terrorism and will cease to be a military threat to the region.  The alternate energy industry in the West will flourish. After a bit of a bumpy start there will be prosperity.   We can then withdraw our negative influence from the Middle East and it can go back to the golden age of Islam or whatever else it wants to do.   Islam's problem with modernity will be solved. 

There will be world peace.

I have a better idea. Why not drop a EMP bomb on the US and the Middle East & level the playing field for everyone down to that of the Middle East
Well, M, i want people to take this bold scheme seriously.  It is more of a thought problem than a script.  It is not a joke.  Nor do i think it is a likely senario.  Nor do i think it would be easy to do.  Nor do i think it would turn out quite as simplistic as i have described it above.  But what it is not, is an escuse to jack off on and rubber duck about and propose even more rediculous senarios.  If you want your response to stick here, consider the senario seriously.  What would be the real problems of implementation?  What would be the real consequences?

This is the stupidest idea I've heard. They will just dig more wells - nothing accomplished. You need to make them radioactive!

Look we can simplify this.  After you take out their immediate military threat, missels, radar, nuke.  Then you take out their oil capacity.  Here, is another senario that misses that point ...

  Well Russia is fueling the nuclear power thing with Iran & obviously doesn't need their oil.
I suspect what is happening is that Iran is paying Russia for wepons and nuclear technology with their oil revinues.  This has nothing to do with Russia's own oil industry.

I think the US needs to come home and focus on our own country and its protection. Start spending the money on becomming more self dependant and efficently. My dad told me to sweep off my own porch before I sweep off the neibors. The older I get the more true this becomes. I am in the US Air Force and proud of my country but times are changing and we need to catch up with the times. Our politicians just focus on their pocket books getting filled before they get out of office and oil is a fast way to do that. Maybe we need to focus on our politicians. GO VOTE PEOPLE. Anyway we need people to brain storm and views. You all are awesome either from the US or any other country. Have a great day.
