Not Enough ME Oil Reserves to Grease the World Wide Sources of Political Friction Bringing All of It to a Stop

Reader comment on item: Middle East Geopolitics

Dr, Pipes opines on how the ME may fare from a pessimistc perspective:
[As someone who has studied the Middle East since 1969, I have learned that it is a good career move to be pessimistic. So, I predict new problems replacing and added to the old ones.]
Now that in retrospective to the just now terminating events of the 46th American Administrative Chief Executive's foray into the area 51 of Middle Eastern politics; and gaining next to nothing to champion some exit strategy for the financial fiasco his tragic methodologies of mimicked socialist antics of his attacks on the Constitutional form of governance he appears to hate, the questions is: does he hate the Arabs more?
He does appear (but those appearances, are they deceptions, or more practicing to avert gaffes) to have had some affinity for the horror and tragedy of the Holocaust; but that was just a parenthetic to the real purpose (by this opinion) of the visit, to detract attention to teh fact that he is out of touch and out of options in retrieving any sense that he knows what he is doing and not even half way tthrough his term, he is out of gas.
So, returning to Dr. PIpes' observation, is his opinion perspective continuing to be fulfilled in seeing that the United States, falling prey to the idea that the American form of Republican Constitutional governance should be the model of governing Israel with 'Palestine' compromising Jewish sovereignty instead of the Knesset playing politics with the same dichotomy with more tragic results? The Sa'udi's are not yet ready, either.
America's immigrant beginnings do not appear to be all that favorable anymore since the strength of America's former spirit is being burned off faster than refinery gases into the atmosphere and the intentions to cut that off are insufficient in any replacement of dwindling energy supplies.
American political aptitudes came up short this week: sort of ran out of gas, actually; anyone surprised?
