War & politics: Sept 11th, bin Laden, Middle East news, from my own perspective.
"International oil sources fear al Qaeda is planning a radioactive strike for the big Saudi oil terminal at Ras Tanura - or against US troops stationed in the Saudi Kingdom and Gulf emirates - that will further push up world oil prices."
Maybe, bin Laden is getting strategic. Hitting the US economy is much more dangerous than a terror attack. If the US economy nose dives, and it is on its own paying for the Iraq/War on Terror wars, that could be a mortal blow. If it would not be, say Bush borrows more, then the whole geo-economic status quo would be upset, turned around completely.
Our weak underbelly.
And what would a cornered Bush resort to?
