28. If Saudi Arabia's government drastically changed within a week, don't you think the US would care?
Edited on Wed Dec-03-08 04:53 AM by Oregone
Being that a lot of oil come from there....I think the US would call that "epic".

Any idea how much oil, natural gas, minerals, metals, etc, comes from Canada?

A month after an election handed a Bush-lite (on everything from fiscal policy, trade, climate change) leader the country, a week of screw ups is going to change the government to a center-left coalition (in which all the parties on the left form a government and get rid of the conservatives). I would think that would be a big deal.
