The Saudis own DC and TOTUS. They want to keep us energy serfs because we have over 4 times the oil reserves they have.

I get it - I know. I may end up going to the guglag for posting it here often. The Saudis own every expensive attorney in London and if you write any unkind word about the Saudis or Islam you will be broken in half.
