America must beware Middle East woes

Recent events have proven how history repeats itself.

In 1975, America was crippled by an oil embargo by the OPEC nations. We knew then our way of life was being threatened.

We overcame it and settled back into our routine. We still depended on the oil-producing countries more and more and now the oil-producing world is exploding. What’s worse, the Obama administration is urging turmoil, in the name of freedom, with no consideration of the outcome.

If hostile elements take control of these countries, we are doomed.

It is being preached all over the world, and in America, to bring down capitalism, and what better way to do that than to price oil so that we are brought to our knees.

Wake up America, your being hunted.
