Reality check

Reader comment on item: White House Nonchalance toward the Middle East
in response to reader comment: Schizophrenia , not ying and yang

People often confuse schizophrenia with a multiple personality disorder, and America is of two minds concerning relations in the Middle East; however, this ambivalence may be resolved very soon. The U.S. rides a tiger it dares not get off and one it cannot stay on. This tiger is Middle East oil.

Neil Cooper's Israel Report lays out a chilling scenario for the ultimate reality check for George Bush et al. If the European Union can shift the oil trade currency from dollars to euros, America's incredible national debt and oil dependency will cause a worldwide crisis of hitherto unknown proportions.
