    not Qatar. Hell, the Saudi regime is made in the USA.

    Of the almost 1,900 dead Palestinians, the IDF said it killed "900 terrorists" in Gaza. Add that to its long list of lies.

    •  We gave the Saudis complete military (0+ / 0-)

      …protection and weaponry in exchange for the Petro-Dollar -- on the condition that OPEC would only sell oil for Dollars.

      Now the Petro-Dollar is dead due to the US toppling Ukraine's government, triggering the China-Russia gas deal -- the largest in world history. A massive game changer.

      It's hard to say how countries will align now that Iran, India, Russia, China, Africa, and Brazil are trading oil outside the Dollar.

      The value of the Dollar was based on US control of the world's oil energy, since 1971. Dollar hegemony. Now it is based on nothing.

      For an idea that does not at first seem insane, there is no hope.
