Whether it was the Christians and the Moors, the Catholics and the Protestants (or even the Hatfields and the McCoys), religious and family differences usually run very deep. In addition, hatreds based on long ago actions are never forgotten.
Main stream media (MSM) has a way of glossing over that fact every time a hint of settlement is rumored of a freeze or even cutback in the worldwide production of oil. MSM contends that the Saudi’s can subsist just so long on low oil prices. Their economy will come to a standstill. They are negotiating with the Russians. Higher prices are right around the corner. The Saudi’s will come to their senses.
MSM also puts forth the Iranian Nuclear Treaty as the sign that all is well and lifted oil sanctions will make the Cleric most co-operative when it comes to oil production common sense. They will be thankful that Barrack has let them back in the game.
On paper it all looks fine. Higher prices are just around the corner and the Shale Oil Industry of the United States will be saved. MSM breathes a collective sigh of relief when John Kerry, the Saudi Oil Minister or even Vladimir Putin say “arrangements are close to completion”.
Unfortunately engrained in all is the simple fact that the Saudis are Sunni and the Iranians are Shiite. That simple fact makes everything else secondary. Religious Wars NEVER end, regardless what Main Stream media believes.
