Worst yet, the way the whole thing was orchestrated, it handed Osama a
victory. What was Osama's big complaints? US bases in Saudi Arabia and
Saudi Arabian oil being sold far too cheap. He wanted revenge for the former
and for the price of oil to go over $100/barrel. Thanks to Mr. Bush, Osama
got exactly what he wanted, even if he is near death living in a cave
attached to a dialysis machine.
your knowledge of Linux is very good. Your knowledge of economics is
not as good. The fact that China is sucking up all the oil they can buy
on the free market has nothing to do with $100/barrel, does it? Perhaps
if we passed a law stating you can not sell oil for more then
$50/barrel, everything would be good? The war in Iraq is not good. It
also has nothing to do with the cost of oil.
Anyway, I joined this list to assist others, and be assisted, not
expound my views on world matters, so I will desist further comments.
You, of course are welcomed to yours and I would not request them to be
silenced. I (mostly) enjoyed reading the banter on the LN lists. At
some point in time you will know Ron is right and Peace and Love WILL
break out (just like it did when The Wall came down and our military was
no longer needed in the ensuing lack of war and destruction)
