Contrary to the past, nowadays there is no more spare capacity left in the world to meet the need if Arab OIL falls (partly) away. There is Iraq, for which the US needs the Arabs for a well end and a US favorable new beginning, there is Iran for which the US needs the Arabs to contain, there is the war-on-terror for which the US needs the Arabs to win, there is China which slowly but steadily presents itself as alternative partner to the Arabs and last but not least: instead of amateuristic army's loaded with inferior tanks and other weaponry, the Arabs has learned how to threat Israel, the whole ME and thus OIL flow, namely by missiles. The Arabs also have learned how to invest and generate financial power with their oil dollars instead of foolish spending on prestige objects. Next step may be they even learn how to lobby Or is that already happening?
