just a global theme that seems to be getting increasingly important in the oil patch...including in the US.
<<For anyone who follows energy issues, the President’s press conference on Friday was a breathtaking example of his ability and willingness to lie about America’s energy needs and reserves while obfuscating his administration’s relentless attacks on the nation’s coal and oil industries.
Hi Wins, i think the U.S has not changed its foreign policy on Saudi Arabia in a very long time. Thanks for that, otherwise , we would have several more bin ladens doing there thing around the world. Saudis are for the states what women are for men , a necessary bad.
What you imply about Obama and the Saudis is a bit... to use your word... disingenuous.
We have had a cozy relationship with the Saudis for decades and decades. We sell them arms, they sell us oil. We look the other way when it comes to their despotism. They let us use their territory as a forward base to keep the world safe for democracy.
We may be getting the shaft, but, some would argue that at least the Saudis are on OUR side. LOL.
The realpolitik of the Obama Administration vis-a-vis the Middle-East is no different than official US policy has been for the last 60+ years.
