There is something fundamentally wrong with Saudi Arabia. We send them a billion dollars a week, they send us boatloads of oil. They send us a billion dollars, we send them a handful of advanced military aircraft. Rumor has it that their government supports Wahhabi schools. Our government says Saudi Arabia is our friend. The price of oil might go up if we blockade Saudi Arabia, but it might go up anyway. If the number of terrorist acts go down, we might all have a little more money, since no one will be having to replace the stuff the terrorists have destroyed.
Never mind people's lives. Only live people vote and the only thing most live people care about is how much money they have in their pocket. Being as an elected official's primary concern is getting re-elected, keeping the price of gasoline down, and thereby keeping more money in their constituents pockets is their primary goal. Never mind what's right.
If we really want things to really change, something needs to be done about "our friend" Saudi Arabia. So write your congressman and tell him we need to put a stop to Saudi oil production. Cutting off the Saudi's supply of money is the only thing that will convince them they are doing something wrong. Freeze all their assets in the US while we are at it. The Islamic extremists want a war? Let's give them one.
