Fool America again in the Middle East - then shame on us!

Amazing coincidence that "Iran" attacks a huge Saudi Arabian oil facility at a time when US gas prices were, in some places, were heading south of $2.20 a gallon....and it's an amazing coincidence that a frothing-at-the-mouth anti-Iranian hawk is standing for a tough reelection fight in Israel when "Iran" attaks a huge Saudi Arabian oil facility.... and given that Trump supporters skew older and whiter, it's an amazing coincidence that the nation that took our embassy workers as hostages attacks our good friends in Saudi Arabia (from which the 9-11 attackers and masterminds came) when Trump is in a tough reelection battle.

Remember the Gulf of Tonkin. Remember the Iraqi WMDs.

1) Tell your Senators and Congressman that no US loss of lives will be tolerated in defense of "Mister Bone Saw."

2) Spread the word that any money that we would spend on more Middle Eastern war would be better invested in tax breaks for electric cars, hybrid cars, wind projects, and solar projects.

No fight between a religious dictatorship and an absolute monarchy should ever be the American taxpayer's problem.

1. War is a racket.

It all depends on the bottom line for each conflict.

Our owners will decide how that goes while we are always busy with diversions. That's the process. The contents are diverse.

The illusion that we currently have a say in that is probably the biggest diversion and the least empowering. We don't nip it in the bud. Can we?

2. We don't need more Middle East war.

We already fought a war to defend an absolute monarchy from a military dictator. At the time, we rejoiced over the lightning quick liberation of Kuwait- only to have the conflict ultimately lead to 9-11, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the rise of ISIL/ISIS.

Let the Saudis and Iranians figure it out for themselves. Our best course is to reduce our dependence on fossil fuel as fast as possible.

3. Electric Revolution is slowly driving KSA and other oil producers bankrupt

That's why they are trying to IPO Aramco.

Every spike is $$$ in the pocket of the Saudis.
