Freak all you like, fellas... its tough to stuff shaving cream back in the can. Look to your own houses... Arab House is afire, you won't be able to stunt the flames for very long - if at all. Look to your own Houses.
Right or wrong, fair or not - BHO, Cameron, Sarkozy, Merkel, Harper - none of these folks will survive the next election should the House of Saud fall. And if Egypt falls, the House of Saud is toast, as is the government of Yemen. Think Kuwait is safe? Think again. Wealth brings envy... and when envy meets up with ambition - LOOK OUT.
Iran must be nearly overcome with emotion from this extreme piece of luck... unless the Iranian regime catches fire, too. And that could easily happen there as well as in Pakistan. Oh, what tangled webs we weave...
I had this to say in my post of November 24, 2006:
Notice how I did not mention Saudi Arabia in my blow-by-blow country description? I am no diplomat; I have never worked in any foreign policy capacity. But, I will make a bet with you: Flip a coin as to what comes first – the peak in world Oil production or the collapse of the House of Saud. These 2 events are inevitable, and each event by itself will have a similar effect. Together, the compounded effect would be… well, disconcerting.On June 5, 2008 I posted:
Saudi Arabia, perhaps soon just Arabia, holds the world's economy in its hands. When, not if, the House of Saud falls, no one will hold what is left of the world's economy in its hands.Go back and look at all of the news releases over the past year... how many articles/stories about Radical Islam? Now count how many articles/stories about popular revolt in Tunisia and Egypt... it NEVER comes quite as expected, now does it?
If Mubarak meets his maker very soon (or even if he flees with his skin) The Boys From Saud are next.
Dear Senator Rand Paul: This would be an excellent time to retract your idea of cutting foreign aid to Israel. If ever the U.S. needs Israel, it is now. I was a supporter of yours, and I want to support your efforts to dismantle the Department of Energy, Commerce, HUD, et al... but your timing could not have been worse, and I sincerely hope you beat a hasty retreat.
