Next War Will Be in Saturn

Forget about Iraq or Iran. The next war will be over Saturn's Moon, Titan.

With about 20 percent of the moon mapped, scientists have estimated several of the lakes on Titan each contain more than the total amount of natural gas on Earth, something around 130 billion tons. That means the orange moon has hundreds of times more liquid hydrocarbons than all the known oil and natural gas reserves on Earth.

Now, some ultra-classified-information may lead to believe that some very dangerous WMDs have been spotted there too. It may be 750 million miles away from Earth, but since when distance is an obstacle for oil companies or to start a war? Forget Iraq, forget Alaska, let's go invade and drill Titan!
