At the current rate of consumption when will the Middle East run out of oil? 20 years? 30 years? 50 years? When they do what will happen?
Do these countires have any other real sources of revenue outside of the exporation of oil? They know this is inevitable. How are they expanding
thier coutries money making capabilities?
It seems like if the US wanted to "defeat" the middle east wouldn't the easiest way, without going into a total war situation to simply use up all
the natural resources, and in turn stopping the money?
Is this the reason the US will not drill in their own country? Use up foreign resources before exploiting thier own.
The smart minds of ATS sure have a much better idea then i do
Am i completly off base, over simplifyng?
What is your take?
