The Arab Dilemma. Large Crude Oil and Gas reserves.
and a small population.|
Their advantage is small population. The Saudi, GCC and Mesoptomia has less than 60 million people but probably have 1/3 of the world's energy reserves.
The disadvantage of the Arabs are LACK OF WATER, lack of arable land which makes the Arab industry very uncompetitive. Thus the Arabs needs to TRADE, selling their crude oil at the best prices for consumer and durable goods.
There is the large state, industrial advanced like Germany, Low states, Italy, Spain, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, United States, China, and Thailand who lacks the important resources. This nation faces rivalry of other great powers such as energy sufficient the British Club, France & Francophile Africa, Russian and energy deficient United States, China who tries to outsmart each other to have secure access to surplus energy.
On the other hand, there are the higher cost producers of energy, (due to isolation, or difficult to process/tap). This include Russia, Persia, Central Asian, Brazil, Mexican, Venezeulan, Sudan, Angola who has vested interest to see that the Arabs keep crude oil prices high enough to enable them to produce energy profitably.
The Arabs thus have a dillemma.
Their small population, the geographic location, the lack of crucial resources to create an industrial society means they are FORCED to have partnership with CONSUMER nations, preferably those who would partner, respect and provide additonal forces to protect their freedom.
Mesopotamia was taken advantaged exactly for that reason. Global Rivalry! Whether the Amerikan Regime can gain maximum advantage especially to gain that production capacity that can effect global energy prices!!!! (That's why it's an Amerikan Gamble)
The other global powers are neutralizing the Amerikan Regime strategies now!
With so many VESTED INTEREST and their paid "pipeline guilds", we do expect the remaining FREE ARAB states to takes the correct steps to protect their freedom and sovereignity.
