Tehran denies Iraqi claim to borderline oil field, says troops are 'on Iranian soil, as defined by known international borders'.
Iran confirmed Saturday that its forces had taken over East Maysan oil field, located on the Iran-Iraq border. The move caused a 2.4% spike in oil prices.
"The Iranian forces are on Iranian soil, as defined by known international borders. This oil field is Iran's" said an Iranian armed forces statement quoted by the Islamic Republic Arab-language television station, al-Alam.

This might require more than a ‘near beer’ summit.
may be “interesting” to see whether Iranian mis-behavior will arouse Iraqi nationalism..... granted, Iraq will not be remotely prepared to fight Iran in the forseeable future, nor would we want that while our people are still there..... [unless we decided to bomb what there is of the Iranian military into rubble and then let the Iraqis mop up]...... but maybe this sort of crap from Iran will prevent Iraqi Shi’ites from feeling too much affinity with their co-religionists across the border?
Great, another opportunity for 0b0z0 to show the world what a piss-legged coward he is...
This going to be nasty to write, but it was humilitation at the hands of the iranians that helped evict the peanut farmer. As long as no American military lives are lost, there may be a positive to Iran rubbing 0bama’s nose in it.
They mean ESE. They could've provided a map.
Truer words my friend! Jimmy Carter gave us Ronald Reagan...BO will give us ?
The moose skinner.
Iranian revolution starts
Israeli covert clandestine actions start
Iran mullahs are hanged by the hundreds
THE WORLD GET A GREAT CHRISTMAS PRESENT.
Iraq will not be remotely prepared to fight Iran in the forseeable future
I think the Iraqis could take ‘em. The Iranians havn’t fought anyone except unarmed college students.
How many of us just knew this was gonna’ happen? Dollars to doughnuts, imanutjob wouldn’t have done this if Bush were still in office.
I doubt it will be the last of it, either.
Of course he wouldn’t. This is the middle eastern game. Leaders bolster their position by ‘standing up’ to someone more powerful than they are. Except in this case it’s more like they’re playing ‘pin the tail on the Bozo’.
These two have been at this since Persia and Babylon...
The Iraqis knew it on November 5, 2008, the day after our election.
Several of them expressed concerns that Iran and Syria would go after Iraq with Obama in office.
The Iranian dictatorship, is manipulating the energy markets via provoking volatile oil-related breaking news, in order to make massive quick profits on either the bullish or bearish side through the options & futures markets.
Iran's OPEC profits continue funding Shia terrorism, plus bolster the brutal Tehran régime, which is under fire from a general public demanding freedom and the removal of the jihadist thugs in control.
Eventually, soetoro will find a way to blame this on Bush, and give no only himmself breathing room, bu imajerkoffjob as well....
Now if we had a CIC with some onions this situation would be addressed swiftly, but with “Fearless Fosdic” as CIC we can expect more of the same. The world community is fully aware that we have a weak CIC, and they will continue to test us.
The sooner the better.
