Since the death of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani, the theories as to what he was doing in Iraq, why he and his companions were murdered, what the Iranians and Iraqis will do in response, and the future implications for the Middle East, the US, and the world are well into double digits if they haven’t already hit triple digits. (The above seems to be the most prevalent spelling of Qassem Soleimani’s name. It’s emblematic of the Middle East that there’s always more than one spelling for proper names of individuals and organizations.)

It’s ludicrous that American and European media figures, mainstream and alternative, presume to offer authoritative opinions within a few days after such an event. It is even more ludicrous that millions of people, most of whom can’t find Iran, Iraq, or any other country in the Middle East on an unmarked map, will believe one or the other purported explanations based solely on their firmly held misconceptions, prejudices, and pure ignorance.

    So the answer to the problem for Americans is to stop buying the oil they produce. Use the free market against them and destroy the value of their only asset by finding a replacement. Unfortunately that also ends the era of the petro dollar, and the USD goes to near zero. Wow! The people can get their liberty back if they really want it.
    Thanks for the great rational article, Robert. 👍

    It is really the illusion of control which is so damning. Ultimately, you have to recognize that if you leave anyone standing, they're going to choose their own way. All war does is destroy. It doesn't build. Those who say out of one side of their mouths that one needs to remove a brutal dictator and from the other side says we need to do nation-building is ignorant when it comes to both.

    Great Article, Robert...Thanks.

    Unfortunately, as you allude to, it is those that don't know that they don't know have ruled our world and no government at present, represents it's people.
