Can the Saudis save the U.S. economy?Submitted by Calgary4Paul on Sat, 03/26/2011 - 16:32
I couldn't resist posting this when I saw this paragraph, especially the last sentence. They must be getting desperate when they resort to telling the truth.
"While U.S. President Barack Obama has been outspoken in his support of rebels in Libya, Egypt and Tunisia, his administration has been less forceful in supporting protests in Saudi Arabia's sphere of influence. The Saudis had previously expressed disapproval of America's abandonment of Egypt's Hosni Mubarak. This is realpolitik at work. Only so much newfound freedom can be tolerated when oil is at stake."
"Realpolitik"- Democracy is for saps, gimme some more crude!
