its such a pleasant thought that the oil arabs might go back to being irrelevant camel riders in the desert again, so much so that my self defence mechanisms kick in and stop the wishful thinking.


To see the evil Saudi regime collapse would almost be as much of a pleasure having seen collapse of the Russian one starting with the Berlin Wall.

Be careful what you wish for because you might get it: if the price of remains low, in a few years the Saudi Royal Family will run out of money to keep its regime intact, and then the power vacuum will be replaced by the proponents of Jihad. And then, even with the low price of oil, all these revenues will be militarized. And as a result, after a few decades, imagine 1.2 billion Muslims manufacturing enriched uranium all over the world, in restaurants, high schools, gutters, kitchens, everywhere. Unstoppable. :D

the prognosis is sunni with a chance of shiite.

boom tish.

more seriously, if things did get worse in the shorterm due to the collapse in saudi influence i could still placate myself with the fantasy that its best for the longer term.

Maybe. Maybe not.

As 1.2 billion Muslims die off from radiation poisoning . . .

Flights of fancy aside and humour aside,

Daesh is the latest failed attempt at pan-Arabism.

As a concept, pan-Arabism is such a failure that no one even bothers to remember it, let alone think about it.

Oklahoma is Now as Much of an Earthquake Risk as California

A new federal map released Monday shows parts of Oklahoma are now as seismic as parts of California and Alaska, long the nation’s leaders in earthquakes, and for the first time includes man-made earthquakes.

The U.S. Geological Survey’s new earthquakes hazard map, which helps states and government officials determine insurance rates and building codes, is in part a reaction to the historic increase in seismic activity in Oklahoma. Last year the state experienced almost 900 3-plus magnitude earthquakes; in 2007, it recorded just one. On earlier USGS maps, Oklahoma was a seismic afterthought.

Scientists say Oklahoma’s surge in quakes is due to the injection of billions of barrels of salty wastewater that have come to the surface during oil and natural gas exploration. The water’s injection back into the earth has put pressure on the state’s fault lines, leading to quakes that have damaged homes, schools and other structures. Oklahoma has thousands of disposal wells, including a heavy concentration in the state’s northwestern and central regions, where most of the earthquakes are occurring. Ten of the state’s 12 most powerful quakes have struck since 2011.

north western europe, canada and australia have more or less all escaped the curse of being rich in natural resourceswhile the middle east and south america, not so much.

maybe its not a curse, maybe its just a return to normal.
