On 9/11 I was at a special training class on root cause analysis. I heard news about what was happening as I went to the class. During the class we took extra breaks so we could watch the news.
I distincely remember looking out the windows of the loby and seeing a woman dressed in a burka walk past the loby with a big grin on her face. She was smiling from ear to ear.
That picture and what it means sticks in my mind. They really do have a prejudice that is religiously ingrained.

During the embargo the McCoys learned a lesson, when price rises dramatically, demand drops dramatically. They are just as hooked on the ol’ bubblin’ crude as the rest of the mountain and don’t want to upset the cart.

China has one gun, but its a really big one. It's called US-debt.
If China sells their stake in US treasuries it would be like igniting an atomic bomb under the US-financial system. It would simply collapse in a matter of hours.
For that reason alone the US cannot afford itself to offend China by messing with their Mid-East affairs.
