We Are So Screwed

Posted by clubsodaandsalt on June 1, 2004

Business > Oil Prices Reach a Record $42 a Barrel” href=”http://www.nytimes.com/2004/06/01/business/01CND-OIL.html?hp”>It begins.

For a while now, everyone’s been talking about the possibility of Al Qaeda choosing to target oil production in Saudi Arabia. Since we insist on doing nothing at all to help the citizenry of that country, they’ve got themselves quite an easy target, given the huge pool of potential terrorists living there. What we’re seeing now are the first signs.. as soon as AQ gets their act together, we’re completely screwed. Between the production losses in Iraq, attacks in Saudi Arabia, and the sick joke that Chavez has made out of Venezuela, our whole strategy of building a society powered largely by a commodity that is mostly found in very unstable regions seems to be coming home to roost.

Really, people, go buy a Prius.
