Hmm, I guess I said, "If the middle east wanted to bankrupt the USA, it could in a few weeks by cutting off the oil."
That must have been the comment that elicited the oil comments. I suppose it would be hard with only 14 percent of the oil. All in all, I do not worry about oil even a little, I don't worry about Putin, I don't worry about Isis. As best I can tell, humans will always be idiots, and want to fight over things. Governments will always need to stop other governments from taking other countries, and Russia seems to want to take, so probably needs to stopped.
As for me, I do not care, yes, it is sad that people die for stupid reasons. But we must accept that humans are basically ,greedy, money hungry, selfish control freaks, and power corrupts the minds. I am not the least bit worried about the USA, I am grateful to come from the country with the least amount of social problems on the planet, I can always go to the USA and hide if needed.
What I know on the planet is this, there are people who want to fight, ask to fight, and there are people who will stop them, kill them, and stop them. It is best to stay away from both sides of the fight. When a solder enlist, he or she is wanting to fight, so we let them fight. I am grateful they want to stop the people asking to fight, but they too were wanting to fight, so basically the same coin flipped over.
It is real easy to avoid fights, super easy, unless you are the President of the USA, but a person has to be crazy to want to be a leader of a country. He or she gives up their whole life, to be important, to be famous.
Getting upset, or angry over world politics is a refusal to accept we are not a God, it is the desire to be a God, to make rules. I have no clue, why a God, would want to be worshiped, I do not understand people wanting fame. I do understand why I want the pretty girl I meet to come talk with me.
There was a time I would have jumped into this discussion with both feet, correcting this and adding that. Now that my age starts with a 5, I choose not to be sucked in. Instead I am checking to see if Andy's pretty girl has a pretty girlfriend...
