Kurdish oil to be seized following order and arrest warrant

The oil tanker carrying 1M barrels of Kurdish crude oil to the U.S. will be seized by marshals if it enters U.S. waters, following Magistrate Judge Nancy Johnson's order and arrest warrant over the controversial cargo.

If seized, the shipment will be moved ashore for safekeeping until the dispute is resolved.

    We should refine it and lower U.S. gas prices by a few pennies.

    The Kurds are the only rational and democratic players involved in the area other than Israel. The Kurds and Israel are also the only players in the area that actually like America.


    Which of the players does our Dear Leader decide to oppose? Of course. Israel and the Kurds.

    Does it just seem to me that whenever the US has a choice to make, that lately there is a greater than 50% chance the US gets it wrong? I don't get it.


    I hope that ship is released soon and the Kurds can complete their chosen transaction.

    The "business" I was referring to was defense contracting and "honest" businesses don't have much sway (cash) on Capitol Hill.
