Question Is Saudi Arabia Considering Preemptively-Striking U.S.??


"A Saudi prince has warned that his oil-reliant nation is under threat because of fracking technology being developed elsewhere around the world.

Billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal said the Gulf Arab kingdom needed to reduce its reliance on crude oil and diversify its revenues.

His warning comes as rising shale energy supplies in the United States cut global demand for Saudi oil.

In an open letter to his country's oil minister Ali al Naimi and other government heads, published on Sunday via his Twitter account, Prince Alwaleed said demand for oil from Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (Opec) member states was "in continuous decline".

No, that would be suicide. The last thing the greedy monarchs of the Saudi family want is for their country to end up like Afghanistan. Full out war would be suicide, and even large terrorist attacks would not only be pointless but bring the enemy to their nation.
Thanks from Tony

Oil has not been anything other than a commodity for a number of years. The US only buys a small amount of oil from the middle east to assist their ability to generate worth for the purchase of the things needed for living, like food, water, or electricity production capacity. These countries like Saudi, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, and all the others in the region are not able to grow or produce food anywhere near their need. So, the only two things they all have enough of is oil and dope. And, again, we only purchase enough to keep them eating so they won't have to go next door and look for food. (Oil, not dope)

Our top three suppliers of oil for us are Canada, Mexico, and Venezuela. And we are always one of the top three importers and exporters in the world. We don't need it. But they need the business. red
