    Does anybody get the feeling (besides me) that they are just dragging (and dragging) this whole event out because they know there is no solution and in the interim are hoping, just hoping 1. They find (stumble upon) a solution 2. the well does deplete or 3. Iran fires a nuke and it really does seal the well.
