Now who put the Saudis and the other Petro cartel, (OH and the new oil cartel is NOT Arab) in their positions? How much drilling is allowed in this nation? How about we start where the problem is and take care of ourselves instead of pointing fingers at others. Now are the Saudis and other Petro cartel paying offffffff American politicians to stop oil drilling, exploration and new refineries????
Yes, we should start drilling our own oil and reduce the influence of the Saudis. I have no special insider knowledge on whether the Arabs are bribing to keep us hooked up to their oil, but the Arab lobbyist influence IS way too strong... and decidedly more dangerous to us than the Israelis.
I can’t think of any other (significant) reason why (foremostly) the State Department is so intensely backing the Palestinians and the Arabs in their quest to reduce Israel bit by bit.
Indeed Olmert and the rest of the liberal Israeli “elite” are also to blame, but the irrationally intense support of this Adminisitration for the terrorist Palestinians can’t be easily excused by that.
Whatever has become of “either you are with us or with the terrorists”. Supporting Fatah/Abbas/”Palestine” is picking the wrong side.
