Re: VE [OT: VME ?]

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
First, I also wish I weren't so concerned.  Unfortunately, no person in the world with brain and/or soul can afford that.
Second, I did not call anybody "ungrateful" or any other name, for that matter (refer to my post).  Why such post?
Third, do you seriously think/say that the UAE, Saudi, or any other government or people will be happy to loose their most significant source of income (for example, due to the hypothetical - alas -dwindling demand for oil)?
Have a good day.

I wish you weren't so concerned about those ungrateful people in the Middle East.

Amen to that.
However, that will make lots of people in the Middle East and elsewhere very unhappy - hence, another casus belli.
There should be something else...

Sure--the day we start turning away tankers and saying, 'Thanks, but we
don't have much use for imported oil these days.'
