Friday night I was taking a NYC cab home, my driver was a Pakistani and he was listening to the BBC which started discussing recent gas/oil prices.
He blurted out quite seriosuly that America "should just invade Saudi Arabia and take their gas". "They don't have any army and the young people all want to be American".
Nothing like prices at the pump to spur public opinion.
By the end of the summer, drivers will be screaming to drill ANWR and invade Iran already.
Except that it's not theirs - it's ours.
We found it, we drilled it, we moved it, we created useful machines that can make use of it - they did nothing except steal it.
If the expropriation of ARAMCO in 1980 was challenged with force when it happened, we wouldn't be in this mess.
