A quote to remember...

"There are people (Muslims) who control spacious territories teeming with manifest and hidden resources. They dominate the intersections of world routes. Their lands were the cradles of human civilizations and religions. These people have one faith, one language, one history and the same aspirations. No natural barriers can isolate these people from one another ... if, per chance, this nation were to be unified into one state, it would then take the fate of the world into its hands and would separate Europe from the rest of the world. Taking these considerations seriously, a foreign body should be planted in the heart of this nation to prevent the convergence of its wings in such a way that it could exhaust its powers in never-ending wars. It could also serve as a springboard for the West to gain its coveted objects."

- British Prime Minister Henry Bannerman, Campbell-Bannerman Report, 1907

Foreign body? Who could that possibly be?

This quotation sums it all up. What we see today is the direct result of such long term planing by the former colonial empires.

My suggested solution: lots of nuclear reactors in Western countries, producing synthetic petrol and diesel.

No need for Middle East oil, no need for Middle East imperialism.
