Loyal to Oil a Soil Embroiled
Greg Palast, writing for Guardian Unlimited:
Why not? Why haven't those we laughably call the "leaders" of the US, Iran and Saudi Arabia called back their delinquent spawn, cut off their allowances and grounded them for six months?
Maybe because mayhem and murder in the Middle East are very, very profitable to the sponsors of these characters with bombs and rockets. America, Iran and Saudi Arabia have one thing in common: they are run by oil regimes. The higher the price of crude, the higher the profits; and the higher the profits, the happier the presidents and princelings of these petroleum republics.
The people suffer and the rich get richer. And all in the land of the Midianite Volcano Deity. Imagine that.
