A drone strike in Saudi Arabia

By Mike Huckabee

Saturday, a drone strike on the world’s largest oil processing facility in Saudi Arabia caused huge fires that interrupted “about 5.7 million barrels of crude oil production -- over 5 percent of the world’s daily supply.” Oil prices were expected to spike today because of the strike, “credit” for which has been claimed by Houthi rebels in Yemen backed by Iran, although the US government suspects Iran directly.


Either way, some important lessons can be drawn from it. First, it helps to cement the growing trend in recent years of Arab nations such as Saudi Arabia realizing that Israel and the US are their allies and their big worry is Iran. It also shows that Iran is not a nation that can be trusted to abide by words on an agreement.


Finally, it shows the absolute braindead idiocy of all the Democrats running for President who are vowing on day one to shut down fracking and other fossil fuel production in the US.

Imagine the impact of this disruption if there were no American fuel to bridge the gap.
For the first time in decades, the US is an exporter of fossil fuels.


To be a truly free and independent nation, any country needs to be able to fuel itself just as much as it needs to be able to feed itself. If the Democrats had their way, the US fossil fuel boom would be shut down, Russia would be vastly enriched and empowered through its oil industry, and America would once again be dependent on OPEC oil, which we now see can be disrupted by one drone strike from some shadowy rebels.



If you really want to bet the future of your country on America-hating radicals suddenly deciding to behave like civilized people after they’ve seen how successful a drone strike on a Saudi oil facility can be, then by all means, elect one of those clowns President.


Thanks Mr. Huckabee

@chrislavers I remember Jimmy Carter's solution to this sort of thing. Gas lines, only getting your gas on days where your license plate ended a certain way, stations out of gas. Much of the "shortage" was fake, because of rules about moving gas around to where it was needed. Leftists love this sort of thing. Everyone suffering together. Just like the Soviet Union.
