Oh, nonsense! Israel is the strongest country in the Middle East and has several nukes. It can defend itself. Islam rules the Middle East now, but they can’t even stop fighting each other, so I don’t see one country, tribe, or sect ruling the entire region. We need to increase our own energy supplies and let the ME oil producing countries wither on the vine.
You do know that's what would happen if ME oil was cut off from the rest of the world don't you?
