That was actually working fine until George Bush (Sr.) had to stick his stupid face into it to save his oil-industry buddies in Kuwait. Before that, Iraq and Iran were completely neutralizing each other. Nuclear, solar, hyrdo, and wind power are the answer. Oil and fossil fuels are too valuable to burn for energy, and we do not want the extra CO2 in the atmosphere, unless it's provably going to prevent the next ice age.There's a DeMille book about a false-flag attack on the US that will prompt the leadership to turn Islam to glass. Literally. Like, wipe it ALL out.
Written before 9/11. . . . . I think. Fascinating stuff. The plot was this Koch Bros type guy who figures if he blows up something big, the retaliation will just put Islam back in the 4th century AD. Scary stuff.
I'd like to think we'd not use nukes. It isn't real effective. I'd like us to figure out how the Frick to get out of the oil-import business and let them all fight amongst themselves like they did for 4,000 years.
