Reader Prashant brings a good subject to point: while it seems that most of the Islamic world is dependent upon the generosity of 'good-natured' international financial subsistence, there does seem to be a disparity of which 'Muslim' neighbors are in a position to be of some assistance to their lesser-fortunate 'cousins' of Arab descent; while more often, we see that they have their own perceptions dependent upon how to be good Muslims of either Sunni or Shi'a aspirations. Of which do the Western financiers have more compassion; the terroristic confederations or the regimes with which they might do business based upon access to the oil and mineral wealth over which Islam appears to have control. It would appear that the Iranian Islamic Regime has considerable influences since many break embargo rules with them; even in shadow terms with the 46th American Administration. But the US lost that battle with the Taliban to the Russians and the CCP. The economy of the of the Free World's resolve lost value in the last two months; will it be able to recover if the totalitarian range of economies can fill the void? Maybe, just maybe; if America is further damaged by continuing to limit its own resources for commerce and fights with its own inability to control its own finances, that question might become academic.
