Today's Imaginary Disaster

I recently read an article that stated it is unlikely that any terrorist group would be able to build a nuclear bomb, because it’s enormously expensive and difficult to enrich uranium, and weapons-grade nuclear materials are very tightly controlled.

But this morning I was thinking about the ever-increasing price of oil. Saudi Arabia is the largest oil producer in the world, and it also has known ties with terrorists. What if they deliberately limited production, causing prices to rise, in order to fund the nuclear ambitions of terrorists?

And that, my friends, is how to create something to worry about out of thin air. But hey, the media do it all the time.
