Nomura has a very good piece on the current situation in the Middle East and the risk of oil rising to $200.

One of the concerns today is that spare capacity is fairly high. That means OPEC is unlikely to add supply to the market despite the disruptions. This was confirmed by CNBC yesterday who says that OPEC has no intentions of raising supplies:
Mother Jones reports
Update: Indianapolis-area TV station WLFI reports that the Indiana deputy attorney general “is no longer employed by the agency.” Mother Jones will provide continuing updates and screen captures of the now-defunct blog here.
On Saturday night, when Mother Jones staffers tweeted a report that riot police might soon sweep demonstrators out of the Wisconsin capitol building—something that didn’t end up happening—one Twitter user sent out a chilling public response: “Use live ammunition.”
From my own Twitter account, I confronted the user, JCCentCom.

Tunisia? Nah, not so much. Egypt? Meh. Bahrain? Almost. It took Libya to really get a rise out of the markets.
Amid the largest protests Madison, Wisconsin has seen in decades, newly elected Republican Gov. Scott Walker last week issued a stark message to public labor unions occupying the capitol building: we have options, and using the National Guard against protesters is among them.
And according to a Wisconsin police union president, whether the police agree or disagree with their governor's politics, they would "absolutely" carry out any order given to them ... even if that order included using force against their fellow Americans gathered in peaceful protest.

The Globe and Mail- Jeffrey Simpson
Our southern friends are living the American dream these days, a dream that’s removing them from reality. Their federal legislators, including the President, are imagining a brilliant future that cannot be. None of them, it would appear, wants to awaken Americans from this dream.
The dream? Economic recovery followed by the return of prosperity, built on borrowed money. And not just some borrowed money, but trillions and trillions of borrowed money.
