The Saudis want to threaten us with price hikes. I hope they do try it..we can easily make up the difference as we have plenty of reserves…especially with ANWAR now open…but the Brakken oil field is not being touched much either…all we would have to do is cut off all of the exporting of energy we are doing..keep it all in country..and the Saudis will not bother us much at all.
Karl Denniger’s take is on his site. I will reproduce it here as his posts sometimes disappear:
Heh KSA And All Salafists: **** YOU
In my opinion we’re well past the point where we should be putting up with the jackasses in the Middle East waving their oil wells around like giant penises that are theirs to use to **** anyone up the ass they wish.
