    I was in Australia when the Iraq invasion started, and I recall thinking “just don’t send X tonnes of wheat etc”.
    Those Arabs have been enriching themselves at our expense to work against us for years.
    The actions of muslims leads me to believe depriving them of water, through not selling them food, would be fair enough.
    (I have no idea the tonnage now, or who else would buy it. If we had leaders with spine oil would be a non-issue [I’m thinking Putin here])

    We don’t need ME oil period,we haven’t needed it in decades,it only accounts for 8% of our supply.The only reason we are involved in the ME is because our”allies” who we continue to protect in spite of it not being in our best interest to do so depend on it.

    I was asked once by a Brit when we would get out of the ME.I said simple,when Europe starts sending their children and treasure to protect THEIR oil supply.

    As much as I dislike the idea of Isolationism I sometimes think we should withdraw from the world.After all absence does make the heart grow fonder.

    I still think we should just keep our true friends close and protected and let the rest of the world rot.I would have short list of true allies-Britain/UK,Australia,Poland,Georgia,Israel,Japan,Taiwan,Korea-funny,that’s all I can think of at the moment :popcorn
