    If some corporations can make a lot of profit on newer green technology, then others will follow suit but it won't happen over night. There's too much infrastructure to change with airplanes, automobiles, manufacturing plants, filling stations, oil rigs, shipping, etc. We just have to survive the transition period, and keep our economy and markets stable long enough for something new.

    Something is screwy with those statistics and outcomes.
    Because yeah, when the British citizen in Syria decapitates a US citizen we should really bomb the UK.

    I wouldn't allow that British citizen back into Britain or the US, would you?

    You've missed my point. Saying that we should bomb Saudi Arabia for the actions of some of its citizens is like blaming the UK for ISIS. Hell, as many as 400 UK citizens are currently fighting for ISIS... time to declare war on the UK?

    The Saudi royal family is more moderate and cosmopolitan than large segments of its population. Your characterization is a simplistic stereotype.

    We looked very hard at Saudi Arabia. There was a major security campaign that resulted in hundreds of militants being killed, captured, or driven from the country. You are just saying things that aren't true.

    I wonder if you have even the slightest clue as to the delicate tight rope the Saudi government walks.
