Powerful Quote!

Here is a powerful gem from this article:

The sanctions on Iran are a subsidy to OPEC. The House of Saud is quietly ecstatic. “The hated infidels are paying more to Sunni Islam, while the even more hated Shi’ites are suffering. Allah is great.”

Because voters are untrained in economics, they are unaware of all this. This protects the sanctions program. If it were promoted as “subsidize Sunni Islam,” it would not be nearly so popular.

Saudi Arabians took down the trade towers in 2001. Iranians did not. Iraqis did not. The Taliban did not. So, who gets our sanctions money? Saudi Arabia.
