    Wouldn’t it just be a shame if those pestilent savages lost some of their wealth and power. Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of people.

    Aww. My heart bleeds for the poor dears.

    I can’t name a single Islamic country that produces world class manufactured products. The backward Islamic culture seems incapable of spawning such economic activities despite the availability of massive amounts of capital from oil and favorable tax regimes.

    Wasting the years of plenty and then being caught unprepared when the
    lean years arrive? How typical of those backward countries!

    Um, wouldn’t a reduction in barrels-per-day mean that more Saudi oil is staying in the ground, and so could be extracted for later profit?

    A serious contraction might be good for them, long-term, by giving them the impetus to change while some potential revenue remains.
