The Elephant in the Room

Maybe it’s time to let Muslims resolve their own problems and let the Arabs, especially, redirect their wealth to positive change instead of horse races, soccer matches, golf tournaments, yachts, and Riviera palaces. Western intervention creates the worst of two worlds in dar al Islam; the ayatollahs, Imams, and autocrats have a convenient goat for any failures — and the social maturity of Islam is put off for yet another generation.

I find myself agreeing with Donovan’s position but the strategy he outlines won’t work until we become energy independent.
