← Group Asks for Divine Intervention to Ease Oil Prices

Perhaps a better strategy, given the USA's history of selling anything to pretty much anyone with no tangible long-term thought to the ramifications of such transactions, might be to add an taxy duty to all of those large arms sales to Saudi Arabia to offset their higher oil prices.

Nope - that wouldn't work, cos then the Saudi's would just buy their bombs and fighter jets from the humane, progressive, ethical, forward-thinking British government (as long as we slip them a nice big bung in the process).

Gotta love democracy.
