The middle-east powder keg

For many a decade the middle east has been a powder keg. With Iran pursuing nukes and radical whack-jobs everywhere who can't seem to understand that the basic desire of every human is just autonomy (the right to be left alone and to determine one's own future), it seems like it's just a matter of time before the scales tip and they send virtually whole populations to oblivion.

While this will be a tragedy of monstrous and unimaginable proportions (and hopefully won't draw in the other super powers) there will be many, many unanswered questions as the glow fades from the landscape and we all wonder whether nuclear winter will sufficiently counter global warming.

Among them: So who gets the oil?

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)
