Loss of power

Reader comment on item: Islam's Key Quartet

Submitted by yuval Brandstetter MD (Israel), Jan 16, 2011 at 01:20

Two of those countries will experience a severe loss of power within the coming decade, their power derived from one source: Oil. S. Arabia and Iran. in October 2011 Renault-Nissan will roll out 115 000 new electric cars which feed off the grid, making oil-based fuel un-necessary. These will be followed by an avalanche of electric vehicles which will cause a sharp drop in the price of crude oil, allowing governments to soak up much more revenues by keeping the price of oil to the consumer unchanged. Wiht a sharp drop in oil income the power of Iran and S Arabia will plummet.

If the US wishes to do come out of a positive note out of its Muslim-country embroglio it needs to do one thing only. De-nuclearize Pakistan irrevesibly. As for Iran, that is Israel's problem to deal with.
