To the Editor:
President Bush’s threats and blandishments against Iraq make sense only if we plan to bomb Saudi Arabia in the morning, getting our just desserts in the desert, or so to speak.
Equally nonsensical is Bush’s letting Bin Laden’s boys beat it out the back door in Afghanistan. And does anyone really believe that Bin Laden is on the outs with his family? Trust me, the rich know how to dispossess one of their own.
The big game is back on, folks. It may be only days until 1914, and oil is king. In a recent book review in the “Scientific American,” it was stated that a significant fraction of the world’s petroleum geologists and engineers believe that Saudi Arabia’s oil reserves will begin to tap out in the next five to 10 years. If true, this might explain much about our leader’s animus against Iraq. But then, I may be wrong.
