oil producing regions" have made oil "futures" as volatile and terrifying as
the future prospects of a planet in the grip of warmongers and mad profiteers.

while making the situation "much worse by pressing for a naval blockade of
Iran" - an act of war that is like playing Russian Roulette with the world
