Read This Post At Your Own Risk
I've also been reading Robert Baer's book "Sleeping With The Devil" about what could happen to the world, both economically and politically, if a few determined terrorists go after Saudi Arabia's oil infrastructure. Of course, it's also about how, and why, we've aligned ourselves with the Royal Family of this country, which 14 of the 18 9/11 bombers called home.
Considering that Baer was a career CIA case officer, whose book became the movie Syriana, his second book is a terrifying account that's subtitled "how Washington sold our soul for Saudi crude."
Two fascinating but terrifying links that need a little comic relief like this snippet from this week's South Park... here.
