Obama takes on high gas prices

He’s talking again about speculators, which is a good thing. But what about OPEC, and particularly Kuwait, Iraq and Saudi Arabia? Iraq might be debatable, but we saved Kuwait’s ass, and Saudi Arabia’s as well. At this point, we ought to own at least half of Kuwait for what we did liberating that country, and ditto for Saudi Arabia. We should have been guaranteed a lifetime of special rates on oil. And while I’m not particularly a fan of Donald Trump’s newfound faux populism, someone really needs to stand up to the Saudis and Kuwait (and Iraq). Judging by the incessant ad campaigns, touting Saudi Arabia, every time criticism builds, they clearly care. As for Kuwait and Iraq, they can’t afford not to care.
