2. Saudi oil wealth and government support have spread the most extreme forms of

Islam to all parts of the world. They are not our allies in the fight against sects like Isis.

4. The difference is...

 

Saudi Arabia sells oil to the West, ISIS sells oil only to Turkey.

What's really interesting is that if you look up the history of Saudi Arabia and the House of Saud, they really are the original ISIS.

5. Conclusion: ISIS is a friend in waiting. When they get more oil they'll be our pals.

7. I've read a long time ago (maybe 30+ years?) that all the oil reserves in the world put together

 

would last us about 100 years, at the rate we were using oil at that time. Once gone, oil is
gone forever. The same applies to gas and coal. We would have to switch to solar and wind
energy anyway, whether we like it or not. It is for our benefit, since there is no pollution
from them whatsoever.

It's only Big Oil that's putting up all the obstacles. They don't give a damn how they
pollute the earth, as long as it's bringing them huge profits. They could invest in solar
and wind energy, but I suppose the profits there will not be as big as in oil, gas and coal
-- since there is no fuel involved at all.

9. 2016: we use those noble, all-American Kurds against IS

2017: we use the MeQ against those horrible purge-happy Peshmerga
2018: IS is practically Protestant and is our only hope against that pseudosocialist genocidal death cult!

don't worry, we got this!

6. Saudi sells us oil & gets first crack at buying our best American made weapons.

Isis doesn't do a thing for us. See?

8. Some day these corporations will get their due, I suppose. Their top execs. are

 

mostly psychopaths -- and psychopaths cannot change.
