The Army needs to present its perspective to higher authorities and be prepared to proceed regardless of the national measures that are taken.

Am keen to see if oil bears and oil bulls scrap it out on here as vehemently as they do on HPC.

No, I dont think there's any chance of that. When it comes to peak oil it will (or wont) affect almost all of us in the same way. It'd be a fair question 20 years in the future though if millions have had the chance to fill 1000 gallon tanks with petrol.

How many of you can think of a single tourist attraction that you would like to visit again which has automobiles at its core.

Already US drivers are getting violent at gas stations. Look at the fuel tax protests in this country. That's a foretaste of what is coming. Cars are such cherished fetish objects that people will feel degraded when they can't use them. That will be dangerous.

I would not want to tempt fate, but it is a surprise that so far there has been no repeat of the fuel tax protests of 2000, despite the rise in prices at the pump. Can't be long in coming if the oil price stays this high or goes further. £1($1.80) a litre, can't imagine US drivers paying that, even with a devalued dollar.

The other thing I am suprised no one has mentioned is the implications for food production. I believe that ammonia, extracted from oil, is extensively used as fertilizer on crops to increase production.
