    Here’s a question that might have you pondering: Is gold a commodity? More importantly, are we doing a disservice to the gold industry by calling gold a commodity? These may sound like silly...

And it gets stranger and stranger.

Anyone imagine Chetroff or Gates as VP of the US of A?

Clearer than ever that this is according to a plan.

Can you imagine waving a redder flag to an already furious populace?

There is truly no hope for the Middle East.  These people are so completely inable to stop the blatant cronyism that it's laughable.  Granted, it's pervasive in the West also...but, shit, at least we try to mask it somewhat.  The Middle East is just pathetic.  Even the terrorists are dunces (thankfully).  Every single attempt to do anything of any level of sophistication results in a joke.

If the Middle East didn't have oil, it would be nothing more than a kitty litter box.

Oh, right, I must have missed all of the achievements and developments of the Middle East over the last 1,000 years.  They have but one item, oil, which happens to have been found under their feet.

If you wish to take your info from Bagdad Bob(s), go right ahead.

Not defending current middle east scientific-socio-economic contributions... but "1000 years" u say? Dude, u are misinformed. Keeping it short, read up on what returning europeans said following the crusades regarding the sophistication of mathematics and astronomy (which they regarded as blasphemy) in the middle east.

The Crusades were ~ 900 years ago.  If you want to hang me for that, fine.

Not hanging u or junking u, just informing u. Crusades only the beginning... advancements that helped spark even the italian Renaissance are well documented. From architecture to gunpowder to rocketry to medicine to astrophysics the list goes on... in some cases all the way into the 17th century. Middle eastern contributions heavily influenced famous europeans and are referenced by them.

BTW, my point was about the governance in the Middle East including the religeous zealots.  Of course, most people can't handle that and have to blurr it into a racial / ethnicity arguement.

I'm 110% in favor of the what the citizens of Tunisia and Egypt are doing.

That being said, the Middle East has been unbelievably suppressed by their own regimes for so long that it's difficult to change now.  I don't see the point in arguing the value of ancient contributions.

Fair enough... just keep in mind most of these regimes are "western approved".. irony is that "freedom and democracy" is the last thing western powers want there for obvious reasons.. no matter what our "leaders" proclaim. One can reference post ww1 and ww2 to see who actually dictated the future and current middle eastern borders and regimes. All to chase that finite resource we call oil. Side note... as we condemn and are distracted by the internet and cell shutdown, our leaders await the passing of similar legislation and make similar preparations. Egyptian internet is run by british corp Vodafone... and the shut down would not be possible without this corporate help. All this could be a trial run testing citizen reaction who the fuck knows. Nothing surprises me anymore.

Yes, my "ignorant ass" is saying that you are wrong.  I can find 100 accomplishments from the hills of West Virginia but that doesn't mean that they aren't backwards.

All developments from the ME within the last 1000 years. Cry all you want, loser, but that won't change the fact that these people were doing surgery and calculus while your ancestors were giving each other the plague and burning "witches".

It's more than a little ironic that your empire will fall for the same reasons theirs did.

Oh big deal. In the west. IBM invented the mechanical tabulator. Sold it to every government. This technology allowed social security which gave us the most massive rippoff ponzi the world has ever seen. We are much more creative. As long as the creativity is centered around creating counterfeit money.

Read God's Crucible by David Lewis.  It talks about the reconquest of Spain.  Indeed it is at the back end of your "thousand years" comment but you clearly demonstrate your ignorance of the importance of islamic culture in regards to the tenological development of Europe and the world.  The same can be said for European understanding of Chinese contribution.  1421 and 1434 by Gavin Menzies are good introductions.

Interestingly Ghengis Khan is believed to be, by many historians, the prime cause of decline of Muslim civilization.

There's nothing 'ignorant' about my comment.  The Middle East has been ridiculous failure for a millenium.  Now, if we want to go back to the birth of Jesus Christ...and when man wasn't walking upright and dragging around clubs...

I'd love to know more about the "importance of islamic culture in regards to the technological develepment of Europe and the world".

If you want to buy the world a coke, fine with me.  But, that doesn't make it true.  It just makes it feel better.

Great advances like what? The Space program fiasco? You know, the program that should provide us with a new frontier to pionneer so we can maintain  the US expansionist model, delivering a new space to increase the inputs to the economy.

Result: it has increased the outputs of Earth economy toward the Space.

Giant leap toward, toward, well, toward depletion of resources.
