We have just started an era of fires that cannot be extinguished - Obama has planted to seed for WWIII

Reader comment on item: Obama's Iran Deal Has the Makings of a Catastrophe

Submitted by NuritG (United States), Jul 14, 2015 at 18:07

In 1971 the president Richard Nixon promised the Saudis protection if they would sell their oil for US dollars only. Since then the Petrodollar has given the US the ability to buy oil globally in its own currency, without the cost of currency exchange. Because of Obama, Saudi Arabia is now surrounded by enemies, Yemen to the south, with ties to Iran and ISIS, which vows to destroy the Saudi family. Iran is to the east of Saudi Arabia. Of course, Obama will do nothing of substance to help the Saudis, they are on their own and they, like Israel already, will go nuclear. Prediction: The Saudis will soon start to sell their oil in Euros and Renminbi (China currency), ending the agreement made in 1971 and further weakening the USD, already weakened. When the big dog Saudis do this all the little dogs, OPEC members, will follow them off the porch. This is just one ramification of Obama's capitulation to Iran, others, please watch your upcoming shows and fires.
