Robert ("Rob") Newman (born 7 July 1964) is a British stand-up comedian, author and political activist. In 1993 Newman and his then comedy partner David Baddiel became the first comedians to play and sell out the 12,000-seat Wembley Arena in London.

Robert Newman - History of Oil (FUll)
Robert Newman gets to grips with the wars and politics of the last hundred years - but rather than adhering to the history we were fed at school, he places oil centre stage as the cause of all the commotion.
Its in my opinion that if you are not informed on how the "pretro dollar" directly affects the world, then you don't fully understand out current monetary or fogiegn poliy.
And on a COMPLETELY different note, I wanted to share this other video that cracks me up every time. Its short to the point, but good for a quick laugh :)
