This means that the Gulf of Aden, the Gulf of Oman, the Straits of Hormuz, the Suez Canal, and even the Mediterranean are all at risk. Where does this leave shipping in the area? We already have ships being hijacked and people being killed off the eastern coast of Africa. What does this mean to the cost of oil and even shipping?
Algeria is facing the same dangers that Libya is going through. What happens if Algeria falls? We get 1/7 of our oil from Algeria. If it falls, the price of oil will probably sky rocket. The Guardian says that it "is using it's powerful security forces to prevent rioting". What happens if they start doing what Libya is doing, and firing on their own people.
It is not only the loss of oil that we have to worry about, though. With unrest in Libya, Egypt, Tunisia, Yeman, and Sudan, all dealing with major unrest and upheaval, you have both Northern Africa and the Middle East involved in conflict. Will it spread to the rest of Africa? Much of it is already unstable. What about further into Indonesia and the rest of Asia?
We already have most of the Mediterranean involved,what is the risk that it will spread further north into Europe?
