WARNS OF 'UNLIMITED' OIL PRICES IF IRAN IS ATTACKED :
The head of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries warned Thursday that oil prices would see an "unlimited" increase in the case of a military conflict involving Iran, because the group's members would be unable to make up the lost production.
"We really cannot replace Iran's production - it's not feasible to replace it," Abdalla Salem El-Badri, the OPEC secretary general, said in an interview.
RICE WARNS IRAN THAT US WILL DEFEND ISRAEL:
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice warned Iran on Thursday that the United States will not back down in the face of Iranian threats against Israel.
Iranian officials have strongly suggested the country's missile test on Wednesday was itself a warning to Israel not to attack Iran's nuclear facilities.
Israel has left that option open.
"We are sending a message to Iran that we will defend American interests and the interests of our allies,"
Rice said at the close of a three-day Eastern European trip.
IRAN TEST-FIRES MORE MISSILES IN PERSIAN GULF:
