UPRISINGS:S.ARABIA,SHIITES IN STREETS FOR BAHRAIN SOLIDARITY
Hundreds of Saudi Shiites have protested today in a show of solidarity for their religious counterparts on Bahrain, who have been protesting for around a month against the country's Sunni Khalifa regime, who are allied with the house of Saud. This is according to local press sources quoted by the pan-Arab television station, Al Jazeera.
"Free Bahrain! Foreign troops out!" is the slogan chanted by protesters who took to the streets last night in Qatif, a town in Saudi Arabia's southern provinces, which are rich in oilfields and crude oil and where there are already a number of oil terminals on the Gulf, opposite the coasts of Bahrain and those of nearby Iran.
Time to review energy policy?
Do we have one?
Of course we do. Increase the cost until the populace significantly cuts back on their total energy use. Should this lower America's impact on the world at the same time, that would be a bonus. Candidate Obama was quite clear on this when he was campaigning for the job he now holds.
Okay, okay, you got us there...
