    Um, no, we didn't manage. The 1970's were a clusterfuck of a decade.

    What we should have done then is invest in alternative energy. Instead, we fell off the wagon and became even more addicted.

    According to Freedom House, Jordan is ranked as the 4th freest Arab country, and as "partly free" in the Freedom in the World 2017 report. According to Freedom House, a quarter of all declines of freedom in the world in 2016 took place in Europe.[18] Since 1972 (1978 in book form), Freedom House publishes an annual report, Freedom in the World, on the degree of democratic freedoms in nations and significant disputed territories around the world, by which it seeks to assess the current state of civil and political rights on a scale from 1 (most free) to 7 (least free).:huddle:Jordan hosted more than 655,000 refugees from Syria, including 16,000 Palestinians, as well as almost 60,000 refugees from other countries including Iraq, Yemen and Somalia, and 2.1 million long-term Palestinian refugees.

    The conflict between Iraqi Sunnis and Shias sustains ISIS
    One of the single most important factors in ISIS's resurgence is the conflict between Iraq's largest two Arab religious groups: Shias and Sunnis. ISIS fighters themselves are Sunnis, and the tension between the two groups is a powerful recruiting tool for ISIS.

    In the most basic theological terms, the Sunni-Shia split in Islam originated with a controversy over who would take power after the Prophet Mohammed's death. Today, of course, Iraq's sectarian problems aren't about relitigating seventh-century disputes; they're about modern political power and grievances. But those do tend to fall along Sunni-Shia lines.

    a factor----but not THE REASON-----the perverted concept of CALIPHATE UBER ALLES was theorized
    by the rapist himself and rendered concrete by one of his successors----the vile UMAR who can be credited for
    lots of the really filthy stuff which is dhimmia. Some Shiites and sunnis---on a casual basis DENY the rift------
    but in fact, sunnis and Shiites hate each other-------it works out because MOST Shiites are Iranians and
    Iranians have hated arabs (almost all sunnis) since arab hordes trampled Persia

    Well, if crazy were an energy source, you could put Saudi Arabia out of business.

    :lol:

    You're such a clown.

    Oil is extremely plentiful, and the most economical AND SAFE power source know to man. Nuclear is close, but when things go wrong the fallout is grave.

    Wind is a fucking disaster, probably the most destructive energy source, decimating bird populations, particularly raptors. Solar panels go bad after about 10 years and leave toxic waste that will take decades to degrade.

    As with virtually everything you are sure of, including the Stalinism you embrace, you are utterly wrong.

    Through fracking, the US has more than enough fuel to let the Arabs starve.

    The 1970's were a different time. Canada and Mexico both have huge reserves, and fracking has unleashed an ocean of oil here at home.

    No, it isn't plentiful, nor is it safe.

    Now go away, the adults are talking.
