You know........there's been a lot of coverage over the past week about Bin Laden and some of what he stood for. One of his ideas was to kick anyone out of his country, and then could say that their system of govt. didn't work. He did it with the Soviets, and when their country fractured, he stated that he'd taken down Communism. He then set his sights on democracy and the United States. Anyone notice that the price of oil was less than 30 bucks a barrel before 9/11? And........did anyone notice that oil dropped below 100 bucks a barrel after Bin Laden was killed? There's also his connection with the Saudis, as well as a lot of financing given to him by them. And.......all of 'em were wealthy. Apparently, Bin Laden had talked to the Saudis and used the 9/11 attacks to generate fear, and then start driving up the price of oil gradually, until the US had spent an obscene amount of money and lives in the Iraq war, so to hit us with a double whammy, he and the Saudis started driving up the price, resulting in the US ending up in the poorhouse and destroyed financially. Matter of fact, economic collapse was part of his plan. Me personally? I hope that the death of Bin Laden is enough to drive the price of oil down to 70 buck a barrel. Then lets see if the garbage about unrest in the ME is the cause of high gas prices.
