Default Are the US and Saudi Arabia already waging an economic war on Iran similar to the cold war?

Cheney visited Riyahd to meet with King Abdahla in a closed door meeting. Since that time oil prices have dropped significantly and most economists say there is no end of that coming. Iran is the second largest oil distibutor in the world however that is the only export they have beside poppy plants which obviously cant support an entire economy (see bolivia) however they have almost no production inside the nation. They are the second greatest importer of gas and fuel behind only the US. Japan, Saudi Arabia and the US have all banned selling manufacturing equipment to Iran. It costs 9X more to drill oil in Iran than saudi arabia by depth concerns and infastructure. Irans is already running 50% inflation rate as well as 12 % unemployment. Opec has asked to have an emergency oil summit that Saudi Arabia has declined to allow. Saudi Arabia has said that a nuclear Iran would cause great peril in the Gulf States. The people of Iran are already showing concernsproved by the latest elections where they voted in opposition to Ahmadenijads apocolyptic views. Dr Ariel Cohen from the heritage foundations concludes that a drop in oil prices to $20 a barrel would bankrupt Iran

Of course, it is the only way to restore the Sunni elitein Iraq now that Bush has finally figured out Maliki and his gang of ghetto Shiites openly side with Iran! Yep... the Saddamists will have to come back....

Good question and great info, it seems you have done some homework and that is exactly the way to work this out peacefully and contain this before it gets out of control. Iranian leaders need to quit flexing their little pecs just like Venezuelan leaders. Once backed into a corner, either the Iranian people will overthrow this regime, or we will have to, just like in Iraq. Axis of evil countries have vowed to deflate the US dollar and we cannot have that...sorry, we love our way of life too much.

Why didn't Cheney meet with King Abdullah in Mecca(holy Capital of Saudi Arabia)? Is it because Cheney is non-Muslim and he is not allowed to enter Mecca? It never happened that an American official met Saudi Royal in Mecca.
