Arab oil is the real issue

Reader comment on item: [Pakistani Christians and] A War Against What?

Al,

First of all. Right on with your bad-self !

It's far past the time to end politically correct statements about Islam and its supporters. It's also past due the time to go after the enemy and primary influencer of Islamic insanity. That of course would be Saudi Arabia and Wahabbiism.

Saudi leaders have steadfastly blamed everyone (especially Israel, Jews and the U.S.) for the events of 9-11. Saudi and other Arab leaders have continually cried racism, repression and intolerance towards Muslims and have blamed the west (mainly U.S. and Israel) while allowing their own racist countrymen to continue to finance, support, hide and train terrorists to attack us while claiming to be our friends in the war against terrorism.

Meanwhile Saudi Arabia and most of the middle east (with the notable exception of Israel) is a brutal place where no religion but Islam is respected or in the case of Saudi Arabia even exist. Religion is a one-way street in the middle east yet they expect to proselytize their faith across the U.S,. without any hindrance or investigation into highly suspicious activity.

Which brings us to subject of oil.

The power that exists in the middle east to cause worldwide havoc is all due to the enormous wealth of the oil producing nations' care of the oil consuming nations (that's us) and their willingness to use a large part of that wealth towards extremist support and expansion.

The sooner the west and the world realizes this basic fact and can get away from being a consumer of this product, the sooner we will cripple Islamic terror. The money we save can then be spent on propogating democracy throughout the Islamic world and the 3rd world which will result in an end to not only the war on terrorism but the war on poverty and the war on facism and the war on ignorance and disease, etc, etc....
Submitting....
